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 Display is the best there is (well, almost)

Sep 22 2014 5:39pm CDT | Source: Mac World

Samsung’s recent Galaxy Note 4 apparently edged out the recent Apple iPhone 6 Plus in terms of display quality, even though the analyst reviewing it basically called Apple’s displays the best he’s seen to date. In a report released Monday, DisplayMate’s Raymond Soneira—who does nothing more than test smartphone displays, by the way—called the iPhone 6 Plus display the “best performing smartphone LCD display that we have ever tested,” ...

Apple iPhone Smashing and Bashing

Sep 22 2014 4:30pm CDT | Source: Pad Gadget

We all love to see just how durable our iPhones are and videos are already popping up of them being dropped and smashed, both accidentally and on purpose. These videos are pretty sad, but also slightly entertaining and certainly a relief that they didn’t happen to me. The first video is of the first iPhone 6 purchased in Perth, Australia and it is a warning to everyone to be careful when un-packaging your new iPhone ...

AppleWatch Said to Pack 4GB for Storage, Need Nightly Charging

Sep 22 2014 3:51pm CDT | Source: Pad Gadget

When Apple first announced its upcoming line of watches, one thing that was left out of the spec list was RAM and storage capacity. It is pretty clear that Apple still has a lot to work out before telling the world what the new device will do. One persistent analyst tracked down some information that may be true. At least, it sound reasonable. The Apple Watch, according to some in the supply chain, will come with 4GB of storage and 512MB of RAM. Accor ...

Fun Rant about Those Who Claim Apple is the Copier

Sep 20 2014 6:27pm CDT | Source: The Mac Observer

I got a tip Saturday about a new blog called Tim Cook's Id, with the subheading "what Tim Cook id is really thinking." I'm not sure if that's the case, but the inaugural rant is a beauty about those claiming Apple is the real copier in the mobile world. It's titled, "Anyone saying Apple copied Samsung/Google with a big screen phone is a $%&# idiot," which cu ...
