Apple vs. Samsung, the Eternal Question

By: Sunint B.

Have you heard the never-ending discussion about one question – which is better, Samsung or Apple? While there is no definitive answer to this question, there are some of the major pros and cons of both companies and their products, as well as which companies products would be more suitable for which kind of people. Below is the comparison between both companies.

Price point:

Both of these companies create high end, premium, top of the line products, and are not for the economically conscious person. While the brands are valued and their products are considered good, they are lavishly expensive, their products ranging in price from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.

User-friendly:

Samsung‘s products aren’t the most user-friendly, especially with a population that is not familiar with such advanced technologies, such as the baby boomer generation. For young people, however, who are able to easily use the technology, Samsung is definitely the better option.

Apple has simple, easy-to-use products. For young people, it seems as if Apple products don’t provide the features and technology that we need, and that it’s very basic and only has simple things. For most people though, especially adults, this isn’t the case, and it all has to do with familiarity and reliance on technology.

Specs and features:

While I can’t go over each and every product made by both companies, there are general perceptions relating to this, some of which are true.

Samsung‘s products usually have the best operating system, using Android 4.4 KitKat. The Nexus 9, being a product using Android 5.0 lollipop, has the highest screen resolution of any tablet in the world. Samsung, for the most part, tends to have the upper hand of in this area.

Apple doesn’t have the variety of features that Samsung provides, which is why sales are declining with adolescent, however, it does provide good performance in the products, and most likely you won’t even notice much of a difference, so it’s also dependant on personal opinion.

Value:

Samsung: If you are a young person, or a person familiar with technology and uses and relies on it frequently, I suggest you get Samsung products, primarily because they provide a lot of features that Apple doesn’t, and familiarity with technology will allow you to utilize these features for a lot of benefit.

Apple products are good for those who want to be able to use modern technology, but aren’t that use to it, such as elders and adults. It’s simple, easy to use, and gets the job done, and provides you with all that you need.

Performance and usability:

Samsung and Android products tend to have more advanced features, however for some, utilizing them can be a pain. While their devices may not be easiest to use, if you know how to use them, you can definitely take advantage of their numerous features that aren’t available on Apple products.

Apple has simple products that can appeal to an aging population that is not familiar with a society so engrossed by technology. Technology has taken over our world so much, it can overwhelm some people, however, Apple products can help make it easier to use technology.

In conclusion, I personally feel Samsung’s products are better. Both Samsung and Apple are companies that make quality, recognized products. Samsung is usually better for the more tech savvy, young population, with its numerous features and complex system, while Apple is better for adults or elders who may not be so tech savvy, because of its simplicity and user friendliness. Both of these companies make quality products, and that if you are willing to spend the extra dollar, it can pay off in the long run to get a product from one of these two companies.
