Earlier this year, I did a post about visualization trends and predictions I had for 2013. I see and hear about many of these trends in the news all the time. Allison Morris recently sent me this graphic that examines the smartphone competition between Samsung and Apple – and why Samsung could end up ahead. Although Apple has a higher profit per phone and ranked 1st in smartphone brand loyalty, Samsung has more revenue, more employees, more R&D spending, and they sold more phones than Apple in 2012. I’m thinking that 2013 could be the year that Samsung could take over the smartphone market. What do you think?
