There are plenty of people who will buy Apple products just because it's Apple, but it's important to realize that as recently as ten years ago, almost no one bought Apple products, period. There's a reason that's changed over the last decade.
yea, apple's still a more refined product. but for most users with very basic needs, the ipad crashes less often and has more apps. samsung does create a very competitive product though, and if you've bought into the samsung ecosystem, there's some cool things you can do with interaction between TV, bluray, tablet/phone, etc. Plus, the android tablets are much cheaper than their IOS counterparts.
Personally I still use an iPad, despite that I'm a developer who's a big fan of open source and the android philosophy. But don't be fooled, the gap is smaller than most apple fanboys will admit. Innovation is happening across all platforms, and it's good to be a consumer in the middle of all this
