Bottom line: Apple v. SamsungAugust 4, 2013: 6:20 AM ET
Remember those headlines about Samsung "dethroning" Apple in profits? Forget them.
FORTUNE -- If anyone can draw a picture that puts to lie Strategy Analytic's claim -- widely reported in the tech press -- that Samsung has become the world's most profitable smartphone vendor, Horace Dediu can.
The chart above was adapted from That Competition Thing, a post on his Asymco.com blog that compared the top and bottom lines of Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Google (GOOG), Microsoft (MSFT) and Samsung.
Dediu's bottom line on Apple v. Samsung: "Apple remains most profitable phone maker by a wide margin."
Below: Dediu's revenue charts for the two companies by segment and product line.
