Ever since the now widespread smartphone was first introduced into our tech savvy society, the technology titans of our modern commercial space have been valiantly struggling to dominate the smartphone market. Realistically, however, Apple and its notorious iPhone have been the king of the smartphone space for years now, turning insanely large profits with each updated model that’s been released. But while Apple has continued to overpower other smartphone makers in terms of profit, the past year or so has seen an interesting trend in the rise of potential competitors—as of 2012, Apple and only one other company turned profits on their smartphone revenue. The other company? None other than Samsung. This surprising profit split has caused many to take a step back and look at Samsung as a company, and also as a viable smartphone competitor to Apple. While Apple’s profit is indeed huge, Samsung is actually selling more smartphones, and gaining buyers at a greater rate. The following infographic takes a look at the match up between smartphone rivals Apple and Samsung: Who’s making more money, who’s shipping more phones to customers, and who has better customer loyalty. Samsung hasn’t overtaken Apple yet, but their viability as a competitor may surprise you.
