The Galaxy S7 is outselling the iPhone 6S in the United States

Now this is something that Samsung fans will love to hear about. Latest data about the US mobile market from Kantar Worldpanel shows that the Galaxy S7 series has been outselling the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus in Apple’s own backyard. This follows the first ever sales decline for the iPhone that Apple posted earlier this year.

The report mentions that 16 percent of customers in the country purchased a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge while 14.6 percent opted for an iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus instead. It merits mentioning here that the Galaxy S7 came out around six months after the iPhone 6S but the difference between their release dates has never stopped the iPhone from outselling Galaxy S handsets in the past so this is certainly a break from tradition. Samsung captured the biggest share of the US mobile market in the three months ending May 2016, it now stands at 37 percent against Apple’s 29 percent even though Apple commands 88 percent customer loyalty. These numbers show just how big of a hit the Galaxy S7 has turned out to be for Samsung and that’s immediately reflected on the company’s balance sheets. It will now be hoping that the Galaxy Note 7 goes down the same road and becomes just as successful as the Galaxy S7.

As it should . Samsung is leading the way into innovation and the future. Apple is very much becoming obsolete. #NothingBeatsSamsung

When Steve Jobs got sick, innovation stopped at Apple, and that was well before he passed, RIP. People who would have unthinkingly bought an iPhone are rethinking and discovering that they’re paying a premium price for what is essentially a mid range phone from a company who squeeze you for every cent in your pocket, whether it’s cloud for your photos that you have to pay for (that’s not even secure) to rip off repair prices and making your previous phone unusable after 2 OS updates. Now with iPhone 7, which it seems will be a pretty boring upgrade, where… Read more »

Apple hasn’t developed anything innovative to “Wow” users since 2007. It’s the same thing over and over. People want change, they need something new every few years and Apple doesn’t provide that. iOS always looks the same and people get bored. Samsung has changed dramatically in the last 5 years and it’s paying off. They had their hits and misses but never gave up. As a tech savvy person, I know Android and Samsung are always the better choice but I am writing this comment as a regular user. What would entice me to buy Samsung over iPhone? Let’s see:… Read more »

Could be a good movie, as long as they don’t squeeze St. Jobs in to the script. 🙂

Finally people started to see iPhones are mediocre at everything and they don’t justify their price tags.

IOS and Iphone has it’s good side, but the S7 is far superior than iPhone 6s and it shows easily.

This could happen years ago, if not Apple slowed Galaxy S series’ popularity and advancing by the stupid patent claims and hefte fines, which made some potential buyers sceptical about Samsung.

Quite frankly it’s a great achievement for Samsung because not only that, Apple has an unfortunately firm stranglehold on the film, music and photography industries. This is made worse by the fact that generally people are sheep and want to be exactly like celebrities. Therefore people will wear the same clothes, speak the same “lingo” and buy/use the same products. You know, people would rather take technological advice from Kim Kardashian over an actual expert. Apple does make for good competition nowadays in terms of its hardware, but iOS is just awful. People seem to be making up these “facts”… Read more »

“You know, people would rather take technological advice from Kim Kardashian over an actual expert.” This is the truest statement I’ve read in a long time. Kudos to you! Same applies to Beats audio. A very mediocre product hyped by celebrity figures.
