When comparing mobile and PC semiconductors, are it the same and quantities the only thing that changes?

They definitely outdid Apple. Let's see if they can keep the steam rolling.

"The company couldn't have achieved these positions only by being a follower. It is an innovator too."

@Bolaji: I agree. Most people think innovation is all about new products which is not necessarily the case. Innovation can also be in terms of producing the existing products at a cheaper cost which is primarily what Samsung has done. Yes, it wasn't the first one to come up with touch-based devices but it was able to product touch-based smartphones and tablets at lower costs through innovation which is why they became a success.

Apple has more worries

I recently read that the number of Android devices in the world will surpass the number of devices on iOS platform. That's another worry for Apple as it now has much stronger competition on the software side as well while competing on the hardware side with Samsung and others.

@Kayode, Samsung snatched the market leadership crown from Apple in Smartphones sales - that is no joke. It shows how hard the company is hacking away at Apple. It launched its attack, where Apple is most vulnerable - that is the smartphones market and used it to their advantage .More so; it's been able to deliver smartphones of various shapes and sizes with features to match that of iPhones.  I'm sure Samsung cannot let down its guard at this moment. I hope not.

Absolutely Himanshugupta! I think Apple is certainly looking over its shoulder. You're correct Samsung is closing the gap fast!

I agree Pocharle. Samsung is certainly a market leader in innovation. Samsung's latest version of its Galaxy S range is regarded comparable in design and other features too.

@_hm, the company have done pretty well to have come this far. It's currently the market leader in smartphones, where they have hit a 76% record high in just the sales of smartphones alone. The company owns manufacturing facilities, where their products are built. Apple may have the capability to design its own devices and some other software it uses, but rely on Samsung and some other electronic technological companies to build its devices.    I think Samsung's achievement cannot be regarded lightly. This is a company turning things around and certainly still going strong.

Yes, Samsung is a good follower but it's also one that has become a leader. It is No. 1 in smartphones and mobile phones, No. 1 in DRAM (memory semiconductor) and a leader in TVs plus other consumer electronics products. The company couldn't have achieved these positions only by being a follower. It is an innovator too.
