When ever Samsung Activates one device Apple activates two devices.
A year ago, Samsung was leading by selling its smartphones. Clearly this year is not a very fortunate one for Samsung as Apple took over its place. It is said that status is not always a quo; if you don’t not fix the problems specially in tech industry then it will only take one night to dropped you down from the title of the leader and that’s what actually happened to Samsung. Google’s name was not in the list as it only has two devices on its plate to compete with and these devices are not very much popular. More to it Google’s smartphones are only available in very few countries unlike the two renowned brands Apple and Samsung. Not only smartphones or other gadgets there are also many other apps related to messaging, social, music, games, entertainment that have been downloaded during winter holidays.
