Samsung's New Strategy Chief an Apple User, Cites Ecosystem Benefits and 'Stickiness'
In an interview with MIT Technology Review (via The Verge), Samsung Chief Strategy Officer Young Sohn reveals that he is in fact an Apple user. Sohn, who joined Samsung in August, uses a Mac, an iPhone, and an iPad as his personal devices, and cites Apple's ecosystem as a major advantage for the company.
Sohn also briefly addresses Apple within the context of Samsung's effort to set up operations in Silicon Valley, noting that Samsung is focused on the broader opportunities involving 6,000 startups in the region and not driven by a desire to take on Apple on its home turf. Sohn praises Apple as "a very innovative company" and points to Apple's role as both customer and competitor of Samsung as defining their relationship.

Samsung's stuff is just not as nice to use as Apple's.
I've tried a lot, including their latest offerings like the SIII & the Note to me they just seem to lack an x-factor. Not sure how else to explain it.

This just in:
Samsung exec figures out Apple has sound business strategy!
Samsung exec opines that Apple probably hires "good product designers" and that the Apple logo is "recognizable."

This is getting interesting. In my mind, the more competitors like Samsung try to compete with Apple on its home turf (e.g. ecosystems like iCloud, etc.), the better everyone's products will get (whether you're an Apple or Android user), so I say bring it on!
Just hoping they learned their lesson on patent infringement and actually invent rather than copy...
