And (and that's an important bit to differentiate when entering a new
market or pushing a new product revision): they almost never
feature-match existing potentially competing products on the market.

By doing so, they prevent customers to compare their products with the
competition feature against feature. So comparison and choice happens
on something else than the common feature set you would expect for a
industry-standard product; it happens on something they are better at
than the competition, be it a set of innovating/differentiating
features or design.
