The new Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are not doing as well as Samsung thought it would.
This is just the latest in a series of unfortunate events for Samsung, as they try to keep up with their competitors.

Meanwhile, Apple is doing great with the iPhone 6 and 6s, suggesting a rise in its ranking to #1 and a victory for Team iPhone. “We’re seeing a higher rate of people switching to iPhone than we’ve experienced in previous cycles,” Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook said, according to recode.
