My take is that when it comes to trying new things TSMC is more conservative and Samsung is more aggressive
To customers it probably looks more like the choice between getting work done within a guaranteed time and what often seems like a pure gamble. Though a lot of that is likely down to how the two inform the public about future nodes. TSMC is conservative there, and usually keeps what (seemingly little) it promises, whereas Samsung seems to like to point out how much they push the envelope all the time (not dissimilar to Intel actually), failing to point out that with being in development still everything is in a state of flux.
