“Focus on the user and all else will follow” – is the key philosophy of Google. Apple products are famous because Apple believes that each detail matters, if it delights the user. Facebook, Amazon and others have their User Experience (UX) teams to build the best user experience possible for their website, mobile /other applications. However, it’s not a rocket science for global brands only.
