Paraphrasing a cool thought I recently heard:

Products that are extremely similar in quality compete on brand. Think beer and soda. Corona v. Coors v. your-favorite-craft-brew. Coke v. Pepsi.

Products that have truly unique value propositions don’t have the same need to compete on brand. The product itself is the brand. Think Apple v. Samsung.
