Apple and Samsung have become heated competitors in the electronics marketplace. Each industry has it’s own giants that are constantly trying to one-up each other. In the extremely competitive phone industry which will win – Apple or Samsung?Both companies have been neck and neck in terms of their marketing tactics.
