Apple fans may not agree, but Samsung seems to be providing the only real challenge to the US firm at present, with V3 readers flocking to read about Samsung at every opportunity.
As such it was no surprise our review of the Galaxy Note 2 was the top story of the week.
We were impressed with the device, giving if four stars out of five, noting the enlarged 5.55in screen makes the device a nice hybrid of the best functions of a phone and a tablet, including a good camera, solid battery life and a zippy processor.
While Samsung is aiming for market dominance, former rival Research in Motion is just trying to retain some stability and is pinning all its hopes on BlackBerry 10.
Our hands-on review of the platform left us impressed, although it remains to be seen if this will prove enough, but V3 readers' interest suggests it may be.
Of course, having a mobile phone requires a mobile signal, but many millions on O2 were left without this service over the weekend after another outage hit the firm, angering many V3 readers who are fed up with the firm's recent failings.
Elsewhere, online scams hit the headlines again, with Skype users at risk from the so-called Dorkbot ransomware worm that demands cash to remove itself from an infected machine.
Finally, our exclusive interview with the lawyer of Kim Dotcom was of keen interest, as he argued the takedown of the Megaupload site was illegal.
