There is plenty of speculation from analysts and reporters whether the new Samsung Galaxy S4 is an Apple iPhone killer. Some say yes and others say no.

Industry Analyst Jeff Kagan weighs in on the debate.

“As good as this new Samsung Galaxy S4 is, it is no Apple iPhone killer. In fact I can’t see any new phone being an iPhone killer. The reason is simple, different people, like different things. Some like Samsung approach with Google Android operating system. Others prefer the Apple iPhone approach. In that world a new offering from Samsung won’t win over Apple customers. These are two completely different operating systems and expectations from customers,” says Tech Analyst Jeff Kagan.

“Samsung could win customers from other Google Android smartphone makers. There are quite a few. They may even win some customers from other competing operating systems. Either way there are quite a few other competiting companies like Nokia Lumia with Microsoft Windows Phone, Blackberry Z10, Huawei, ZTE, Sony, Motorola, HTC, LG and more,” says Jeff Kagan.

“So while Samsung winning iPhone customers from Apple would make a great headline, don’t count on it happening in today’s marketplace anyway,” says Kagan.
