Samsung exec: “I’ve always used Mac, an iPhone, and an iPad”

Young Sohn, president and chief strategy officer in the US:

OK, so think about Apple compared to Samsung. I use a Mac, actually, at home. I’ve always used Mac, an iPhone, and an iPad. I also have the Galaxy. So I’m a great example.

If you look at the strengths of Apple, in a way it’s not the product per se. It’s that consumers like their ecosystem such as iCloud. I like that my family 6,000 miles away in Korea is able to see my schedule and see all of my contacts and photos. It is sticky, but it is a proprietary architecture.

    If he has a Mac, an iPhone, and an iPad, I’d love to know how much use that Galaxy gets…

    Yeah. It’s not the great products that Apple fans love… it’s iCloud. Um, sorry, NO. It’s the great products.

      Considering the derision that iCloud gets, people love Apple products despite it, not because of it.

        iCloud works great for me. I don’t get all the complaints.

    Not sure why he works at Samsung. He should apply for a job at Apple.
