Samsung stopped selling Galaxy Note 7 in early October. According to the analyst Chicana Charm, for lack of “sufficient features” in the iPhone 7, the majority of owners of potentially explosive Galaxy Note 7 decided not to change the ecosystem.
“Apple has a strong ecosystem that includes hardware, software and application stores, the analyst stated. – IPhone users who are waiting for updates will remain with Apple. But this year, when Samsung was a mess, Apple was not a phone, which would be enough to attract owners of Samsung”.
Note that in September, Apple decided not to publish the sales report of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus for the first weekend, as these data “do not reflect the real sales of the devices”.
