Samsung trial has unearthed a Samsung study that identified eight cities where the iPhone had a significant lead over Samsung devices in 2010, AllThingsD reports.
Additionally, only 33 percent could access an application’s menu screen on the Samsung phone, compared to, again, 59 percent on the iPhone.
The eight cities were San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, Washington DC, Dallas Fort Worth, New York and Boston.
Samsung currently has the lead here, with a market share of 32.6 percent, Apple comes in at 16.9 percent.
Its not much of a surprise that San Francisco showed up as Apples best performing city, since it is close to the companys headquarters in Cupertino and is known for favoring its products.
But thats about half the 9.6 percent share captured by Samsung in the same period, and a pittance compared to the 68.2 percent owned by Apple.
However, Philadelphia was also the site of Samsungs largest success in March 2011, as the company succeeded in closing the gap by 11.5 percent.
The company had previously offered a patent license to Samsung of $30 per smartphone and $40 per tablet, though that deal reportedly did not include the licenses for the iPhones unique interface.
The trial also outed an internal comparison by Samsung of the iPhone and the Galaxy S that found its own devices to have a strong impression that iPhones icon concept was copied.
