Tavis Mccourt, managing director of equity research at Raymond James, shares some interesting charts comparing sales of the Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

In his report, Tavis says, "iPhone shipments since 2010 (when Samsung launched the Galaxy line) still dwarf Galaxy sales, but Samsung is closing the gap," reports Barrons.

Notably, the only time Galaxy sales exceeded iPhone sales was just before the iPhone 5 release. Mccourt believes that the iPhone will outsell the Galaxy this quarter but that Samsung will pull ahead next quarter.

Take a look at the charts below...

Look, I have had both phones, and this is what I see.. iPhone was the first to have cool stuff yes, but then android caught up and passed them by. Every year I see apple promising new amazing things for their next phone, but when the phone comes out it has nothing they promised. It's always the same phone but (this time), just a bit bigger..with maybe a few MINOR changes. Every time Android releases a new phone it takes me days to learn all the new things they have added. It seems to me that samsung/android researchers are working their asses off full time to come up with as many cool new things as they can possibly imagine.. lots of new BIG changes, and even the many little simple things we use every day that no one else would have thought to add, but they make our life easier and more fun! They listen to customers feedback and requests and ideas and they bring it to life and MAKE IT HAPPEN. While the apple researchers aren't creating any new features for their customers. I also have learned that because the galaxy's are plastic & glass (rather than all glass like the iphone), the Samsungs last longer, get less cracks, they don't shatter when u drop them, they bend easier in ur pocket without breaking, and they are lighter. Some ppl think it's cheap to be plastic, but they actually changed it to plastic on purpose because it's better and less breakable! I see iPhone now as an over priced simple smart phone that is good for ppl who don't want anything too complex and they don't want it to change each year. I see samsung/android as a fairly priced, durable smart phone that is being improved in multiple ways every single year and gaining more customers by the day. Take down a list of all the new features and options and gadgets that the adroid has to offer, then make a list of all the new features the iPhone has to offer.. iPhone has come up with about 6 minor changes in the past 4 years, and Android has over 20 amazing added features in that same amount of time... and for less money. Including a FULLY waterproof phone (meaning it can be fully submerged for up to 1 hr.), built in heart monitor w/health app, huge screen, way better picture, ability to be tv remote, more bendable and durable, so many cool camera features and options I can't even name them, better apps, free music, hundreds of ways to customize every single part of the phone INSIDE and out, they take SD cards so u have more gigs and can swap em out just like a digital camera so ur memory never runs out, the list goes on and on. But you won't really get it untill you have tried them both. Untill you have truely tried them both, your input is basicly worthless because your only stating a one sided bias opinion. I did love my iphone alot when I got it... but when I saw how much harder the adroid ppl were working to please their customers vs how many broken promises apple has been making..all while charging more... i switched to android just to try it out. It costed me way less and now that I have experienced all these new amazing features I could never go back to the iphone unless they catch up and atleast match them and have all the same things. But at this rate.. i doubt if they'll ever catch up. Their name is all they have at this point.. but that won't keep em up for much longer, they are eventually gonna have to start researching new ideas and big changes for their upcoming phones or their phone sales will continue to decrease. I just got sick of seeing everyone around me that had a Samsung phone doing this and that and all this cool stuff that my iPhone couldn't do, and I paid way more for it! It's simple really... don't just focus on the "name" on the phone... just sit back and view which one has more to offer for the amount of money they're charging, and which one is likely to last longer? U want a simple phone that always stays the same? Get an iphone. You want a customizable phone that's always advancing and changing and has cool new things added every year? Get a samsung.

People are so hostile on here. However I have to say the claim that people use of Androids being cheap is completely foolish. There are phones on the market that well exceed the price range of Iphones, also the quality you receive down to the manufacturing build over powers Iphone. Yes I was a huge Iphone fan when they first came out. That does not mean no phone will ever be better. And for the comment made by "Bloodbeast", that was ignorant. Iphone has plastic as well. I do not see where someone can use that as a claim for superiority. Anyways what I want to get across is that not all Android phones are bad, and Iphone users who prefer their phones then so be it. There's no need to act like a bunch of five year old making completely ridiculous claims.

You people who like the galaxy are idiots. The galaxy is made of plastic and therefore a piece of crap. Not to mention the fact that the os is ten times harder to use than iOS. You people who bitch about iOS not changing, it doesn't change for a reason, it is perfect exactly how it is. Easy to navigate and fun to use. Also, iTunes is light years ahead of the pathetic android store iTunes has more apps and a interface that is usable( unlike the interface of the android store). Also the iPhone looks better, it has the aluminum body which lol low stunning and the graphics are way more reasonable also. The size of the galaxy is also ridiculous, why the hell would you want a phone that requires two hands to operate and barely fits in your pocket.
