Apple and Samsung are the two biggest rivals in the hottest space in tech: smartphones in tablets.
In fact, they’re the only two companies that make any real profit in mobile.
While Apple kicked off the modern smartphone revolution, Samsung was the one company that was the quickest to catch on and adapt. And a lot of that is because, in part, it borrowed many of Apple’s ideas for its own products and services.
Samsung's charger port on its first Galaxy Tab looked just like the one on the iPad. Samsung has since switched to regular USB chargers on its tablets.
Samsung created Samsung Wallet, an app that stores coupons, tickets, boarding passes, etc. after Apple introduced Passbook for iPhone.
Samsung also has mini stores within Best Buys with specially trained staffers to help you with your Galaxy tablet or phone. This is a very similar concept to the Apple Store Geniuses.
But things have gotten better! Samsung has done a pretty good job recently at differentiating its devices from Apple's. Most notably, it makes phones with giant screens and includes accessories like a stylus.
