An online poll conducted by the Latinos Post finds that out of 1,007 voters, 58.8 percent find Apple smartphones to be more appealing than Samsung smartphones.
The poll was initiated on June 16 prompted by the breaking news that Apple would have to pursue a new filing if it wanted to pursue its bid to place a ban on the Samsung Galaxy S3 in the U.S.

In total, 380 votes (37.77%) favored Samsung as a more appealing brand in terms of smartphones against Apple's 591 votes (58.75%) while 35 votes (3.48%) chose other neither of them. In total, 1,007 votes were made in what represents an unscientific poll.
While 1,000 votes is anything but extraordinary, the poll's results could perhaps reflect how Apple's ongoing legal efforts to ban Samsung products is impacting its overall brand image.
According to another online poll, 92 percent of more than 1,700 voters were against a Samsung Galaxy S3 ban in the U.S.
The poll finds that 92 percent of voters were against a banning of the Samsung Galaxy S3 in the United States.
From a total of 1,785 votes, 1,654 votes (92.66%) stood against such ban while only 121 votes (7.32%) favored the ban.
Both polls continue to run (below), and although it may not accurately represent American consumers, the poll does not permit duplicate votes under the same IP address and according to web analytics around 65 percent of the voters come from U.S. IP addresses.
Samsung is already the greatest smartphone vendor in the world, an achievement earned during the last quarter of 2011.
The launch of the Galaxy S3 in the U.S. could also help propel Samsung surpass Apple in another front, the 'overall smartphone appeal' front, which according to the above mentioned poll hails Apple as the winner.
However expect Apple to keep its fighting position in this brewing smartphone battle. Many rumors are circling the internet with regards to Apple's next generation iPhone or iPhone 5 that could represent the company's largest smartphone design overhaul since the iPhone 4.
The iPhone 5 will be competing against the Galaxy S3, which makes its debut in U.S. markets on June 21st, three days from today.
With the iPhone 5 release (date rumored to be in September), an analyst has stated that Apple could become the most profitable company ever.
