Samsung Passes Apple in Global Internet Use on Smartphones

More people use the Internet via Samsung devices globally

A new report has surfaced from metrics firm StatCounter that shows Samsung has taken over the lead in global Internet use via smartphones from Apple. I've been surprised for years that Apple held onto that lead considering it's the only company making iOS devices whereas Android has multiple manufacturers. Samsung is certainly the most popular manufacturer of Android devices and according to the new statistics more people are accessing the Internet from smartphone using Samsung devices than the iPhone.

The report shows that the month of August, 26.59% of all global mobile web usage came from Samsung device users. That compares to 23.39% for Apple. Even more surprising than those numbers is that Nokia accounted for 21.66% of all mobile web users.

Apple continues to have a strong lead in the United States with 52% of all Internet traffic coming from the iPhone and other Apple devices. The number two spot the US goes to Samsung with a little less than 19%. The iPhone also beats out Samsung the UK. It's countries such as Russia and elsewhere that Android gets such a significant lead.

iPhone 6 Plus not so Bendy After All, Says Consumer Reports

Sep 29 2014 8:01am CDT | Source: The Mac Observer

Just how bendable is the iPhone 6 Plus? Consumer Reports says not very, and that smartphones from Apple's competitors are actually easier to bend. The independent product testing company pitted both new iPhone 6 models against smartphones from Samsung LG, and HTC and found the competition flexed and deformed easier, which sits in contrast to online videos claiming to show an iPhone 6 Plus bending in someone's hands.The Mac Ob ...

‘Apple Sells Lots of Devices, Pundits See Doom’

Sep 27 2014 1:39pm CDT | Source: Daring Fireball

Busy week for The Macalope: This is classic Apple derangement syndrome. Because one YouTube video maker bent one iPhone and could not bend one other Samsung device, no products competing against Apple are bendable. Not worth acknowledging is the fact that people who did some more rigorous testing say you kinda really ha ...

Consumer Reports: iPhone 6 'bending' controversy overblown

Sep 26 2014 10:23pm CDT | Source: MacNN

Adding to new suspicions that some of the "iPhone 6 Plus easily bends" videos appearing on the web may have been staged, Consumer Reports has now weighed in with the results of its own independent testing that largely refutes the claims that the phones can bend easily. After testing both models of new iPhone, as well as some other smartphones and phablets, the lab found that while the new iPhones were indeed less resilient than the iPhone 5 or Samsung's Galaxy Note 3, t ...
