Samsung and Apple have studied the consumers’ desires and are working towards meeting the technological desires effectively, in the long run. The two companies analyze their previous products and their rival’s products to produce phones which seek to provide solutions to the challenges consumers have faced with the already existing products.  The users of the phones also have to make decisions on which phones to use, depending on the phones cost, formatting, applications, desired style of usage, phones' appearance and so on.

Features of both iPhones and Samsung phones are similar. They both have high-resolution cameras, Mp4, and Mp3 players.

Samsung phones operate on Android application systems while iPhones operates on IOS systems.  Android system was developed with the Google group and popular with Google map applications.
