I will address all your points. The least you can do is try and address mine instead of beating around the bush:

"Samsung has stronger phones"
What are they stronger at? There are aspects that iPhones are better, and there is aspects that samsung phones are better at.

"Computers and nowadays have better design"
I will ignore your grammar mistakes, but the voter shouldn't. What determines a better design? That is all based on personal preference. Apple laptops are more durable and lighter than Samsung.

"Better cpus"
This argument made me face-palm. A pretty average samsung laptop (ATIV book 9 plus) that is $1,399 has a CPU speed of 1.6 GHz (1). That is one of the better samsung computers. Then there is the worst retina MacBook Pro that is even cheaper than the samsung. It is $1,299 so I chose to give samsung an extra advantage in this experiment. Well, guess what? Apple won with a CPU that was 150% faster at 2.4 GHz (2). If you trial the best Samsung laptop (Series 9 Premium Ultrabook) it loses to Apple's worst MacBook Pro, as it only has a speed of 1.9 GHz (3). That's a $1,899 computer losing to a $1,299 comMac has better CPU, and it's not close.

If you want to go desktop, go ahead. Samsung and mac each have a monitor and computer combined device. For mac, it's called "iMac". For samsung, it's called "ATIV One 5 Style". iMacs are $1,299, and samsung's equivalent is $899, so mac is more expensive. The thing is that it's much better. iMac has a CPU starting at the speed of 3.5 GHz (4), but Samsung has it starting at 2 GHz (5). That $300 is more than worth the 1.5 difference.

"Better gpu"
No. The baseline Gpu for Samsung is much less powerful than the baseline for apple. The potential for Samsung is a bit higher, but the averages of each make it not close.

"Computer"
Again in this point you fail to use commas correctly. Also, it's pretty obvious that mac dominates here. I went to a PC-biased website (pcmag.com) , and the average satisfaction rate for mac computers was 9.3/10 (6). That was the highest, and it wasn't very close. Samsung was tied for economy with Asus with 8.5/10. That is too big of a difference to ignore. Also, in a different company's survey, apple has won 10 years in a row (7).

"TVs(apple TV sucks) samsung smart tv is awesome"
Again you prove to use immature grammar, but I do applaud your consistency. First off, samsung smart TVs are better. They do, however, cost 9 times as much. The best Apple TV is $99 (8) and the best samsung smart tv is $899 (9). Also, once again you failed to give a reason for getting a samsung smart tv over an Apple TV.

"Samsung is cheaper than apple"
We've already been over the fact that the cheaper apple computers are better than the pricey samsung ones, and that was obvious. We will do the experiment with phones. The current top end samsung phone is $749 with no contract (10). The best apple phone costs $649 (11). The phones are pretty similar in specs, and the cheaper iPhone wins.

"Samsung is just way more awesome"
I just proved this false, and I actually used sources and evidence and didn't just say comments without proof.

Reasons for voting decision: For what it's worth, I actually DISLIKE Apple, for a host of reasons. Nonetheless, Conduct for the forfeits. As to arguments, Pro presented an opening case of assertions. Con rebutted those assertions and....then Pro did nothing. Arguments to Con. Con actually sourced. And what little S&G Pro provided was problematic, while Con's was acceptable and voluminous. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
