From what I've seen from reviews, Samsung has good flash memory quality testing. And is usually near the top of the benchmarks. The fact that Apple is cutting them only now suggests other motivations. Which may mean less reliable internal storage for future iProducts.

Samsung is the biggest shit and copycat in the world.

Toshiba is far more quality.

Well done Apple, teach those Korean government supporterd copycat a lesson.

I would like to see Apple working with Motorola like in the good old days. I guess that won't happen any time soon. Sorry for the nostalgia :)

It is obvious that it's difficult to continue to use someone who keeps "borrowing" your design in their own devices.

I care not for Samsung nor Apple, but it's quite clear that sammy does borrow a lot of inspiration from their customer.
