Samsung always had an answer for Apple.. Now it's taking a step further! Gotta say these GALAXY phones from Samsung are darn good!

Yeah but Apple don't do as much R & D as samsung and also does not manufacture his own product so they can keep higher margin.

While this is true, are their profit margins really that large on the $650 iPhone compared to Samsungs $730 galaxy note, or $600 Galaxy S2?

Also considering the iPhone is made of a bunch of samsung parts.. I would think they are making similar money off phones



As for apple computers, they make stupid profit and I cannot believe they are as popular as they are
