Apple fans then counter that it is the iOS software ecosystem that is responsible for the iPhone’s superior user experience. But there is more to UX than apps and yesterday Samsung revealed a collaboration with PayPal that may give it a decisive edge over Apple in the critically important world of mobile payments.
