It is common knowledge that despite having cofounded Apple with Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak has spoken up several times in the past revealing his preference of other platforms besides iOS, Windows Phone for example, which is why we guess it’s not surprising that in an interview with German business weekly, Wirtschafts Woche, Wozniak gave his opinion that he thought that when it came to the iPhone, he felt that Apple was “somewhat behind with features in the smartphone business,” and even went as far as acknowledging that Samsung is a great competitor because they are currently “making great products”.
The last bit can be subjective, but to a certain degree that is true especially when you think about how Samsung was first on the scene with the phablet (although we guess it started with the Galaxy Tab which could make voice calls when paired with a Bluetooth headset), and despite many calling it a novelty (we were guilty of that), it went on to do quite well for itself, spawning the Galaxy Note 2 and inspiring competitors to do the same (LG Optimus Vu, HTC Butterfly, Sony Xperia Z, etc.). Unfortunately it was not clear as to how exactly Wozniak thought that Apple was behind in the smartphone business, but what do you guys think?
