    Apple falling behind in smartphones, Samsung a 'great competitor,' says Steve Wozniak

    Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has never shied away from expressing his thoughts on internet policy, phone design, or the Steve Jobs biopic. Now, in comments given at theBusinessweek Best Brands Awards and published at German magazineWirtschaftsWoche, he says Apple is in danger of losing out with smartphones. "Currently, we are in my opinion somewhat behind with features in the smartphone business," he said (translated from German), in response to a question about Apple's record sales and profits.
    While he praises Apple and its ability to garner loyal fans, he says the company needs to work to maintain it. "Others have caught up. Samsung is a great competitor. But precisely because they are currently making great products." Wozniak maintains a pretty minimal connection to Apple, and he certainly won't be directly influencing future projects. His current comments echo previous ones: among other things, he's said before that though he still uses an iPhone, its interactions are "more awkward" than those on Windows Phone, though he also said Windows Phone's design beat Android's by a wide margin.

    Apple surely needs a low end iPhone mini to cater to the lower end of the spectrum as well.

    Where Samsung is also ahead, that in addition to a flagship model, they have a lot of phones to offer at every price point. Apple sadly does not.
