Why Apple don’t have to say thanks to Samsung
Few analysts not commented on the growth in activations of Apple devices in the December holidays company twice bypassed Samsung, its main competitor. Many have suggested that its role here played the situation with Galaxy Note 7, because in fact the South Korean giant has lost one of their trump cards.
