This will happen. HTC and Sammy will continue to make huge profit from One and Galaxy Series in the upcoming months, 'til in Oct-Nov when Apple releases the next iPhone, which will have a lot of marketing hype due to current hardware. The new iPhone with an eagle-fly- hybrid compound eye retina display with pixels not visible with an entry level microscope, with the new iThis, iThat and iWhatever will bring a huge crowd that will leave Apple swimming in green paper after Xmas season. Sad but true.

I miss my Sony Ericsson's back in year 9 (UK) 2007 when I had MEGA BASS and portable speakers! Everyone had a Walkman or Cybershot Nokia was dead then. Apple came along with a good touch screen and started clearing up. LG cookie & Viewty where the only good LG's. 120FPS was amazing! Now where in 2012 and nothing has come about since! SHAME
