Should you call the PS3 guy an idiot, just cos his console is slower? Please answer me this.

This is what people have been talking about since day 1, tech specs are important, but not the ONLY factor people use to choose their gadgets.

This just shows how Samsung and Apple's rise to the top had nothing to do with their products, an unreleased phone at the top of the awards list? How pathetic.
Bribes and the unethical realm of marketing are the sole contributors to their success.

Because they cannot still stand up to the Galaxy S II. Have you seen the pre-release specsheet of iPhone 5. It's not even close to Galaxy S II, and it´s not even released yet. What iPhone user most can hope for in new iPhone 5 in the year 2012, is a 8 mp camera. Trust med, you are talking to someone that used to have a iPhone 4 but gave to my sister. I don't actually even use Samsung, as i have a HTC Sensation. But when it comes to Galaxy S II, you give credit where credit is due. Apple benchmarks their devices to old phones for a living, so no use in throwing stones inside a glass house. When Apple releases iPhone 5 and Samsung releases another beast of a device (probably with proper rumored 3D engine), what will be Apples excuse then? I read Business Weekly like 3 weeks ago that 7 million iPhone users switched to Galaxy S II in Europe. Galaxy S II just released in the US, i think Apple are doing their pants right now. My advice to Apple would be to actually focus on completing the very delayed iPhone 5 instead of spending time with ridiculous lawsuits in a feeble attempt to slow down other handmakers. So what is this i hear about iPhone 5 and a square homebutton (Galaxy S II) and ripping of flagship features from Android OS?

I like Galaxy SII in general alot. But why do they have to make the phone so thin that you cant even properly hold it in your hand anymore. Also it gets heated very easily do to the fact that the processor is practically in touch with the covers. Other than that it is a very good phone. If the iPhone 5 will be even slimmer than Galaxy SII people can't even hold it. They have to take toothpicks and hold it with them.

And oh, another thing. Iphone 4 is getting so owned and smacked around by Galaxy S II in reviews and head to head match ups that it's not even funny anymore... I actually feel sorry for Apple.

Also check list of board and officers and almost none are from Samsung, whereas there are people from RIM, Nokia, Motorola etc. Are you saying Samsung bribed these people? Or is just so hard to admit that Galaxy S II is the best device ever made and Nokia has not made anyting even close to matching that device. It's not like we are talking about a low end Samsung phone. Galaxy S II is actually a really great gadget. Go try it out and you will see that there is no need to bribe anyone. Galaxy S II will take those awards everyday of the week,
