Samsung or Apple, which one is better?
The competition has been stiff between Apple and Samsung for years. 23rd September was a remarkable date for the industry as the two tech-giants held major events that day. Apple launched it’s first e-store in India, leaving a footprint, while Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan edition.
So far, Apple has sold products in India through 3rd party retail stores, while Samsung had its official stores in India for years. While Apple can provide online service and customer support, Samsung has already created a personal experience for its customers. Samsung’s greatest strength was its ability to manufacture superior hardware, faster than any of its competitors, through its vast, strict, top-down management system and its prominent supply chain. It’s still worth seeing which company will have a stronger foothold in the market.
Leveraging the popularity of k-drama
Samsung is a Korean based company, so why not rope in a Korean actor as its brand ambassador? Indeed speculation is growing about Samsung Electronics possibly teaming up with global sensation BTS for the tech giant’s latest Galaxy devices.
At the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event held at the Palace Fine Arts in San Francisco, a member of the “Seven-piece group” made a surprise appearance in a presentation video of the latest Galaxy phones, including the flagship Galaxy S20.
We all know Samsung is one of the best brands. And after launching S20 with so many unique colors, it’s going to win the market. Now, it is worth seeing the war between Apple and Samsung. Currently, it’s the most-awaited launch, but who knows what surprises Apple has for its customers in October?
