If I Load a page on safari and hold the screen, the page will not load until i let go. That is what i call pseudo multitasking. Nobody forced you to buy an Android phone. Just stick with the same UI on your phone for years. I'm sick of apps only on the homescreen and the only customization is a pathetic wallpaper. (Without jailbreak). Rip-off price too.

I live in China for 6 years, people here love the iphone4 so much, it's cheap, you can rarely find one in bad condition. It can use most of the app out there, so no reason for them to buy iphone 4s or 5 just for minor update.

Samsung in China is known for quality and design, from computer monitor to TV or fridge and low-end cell phone, along with all the advertisment bombarding the Chinese, definitely a success for Samsung this year.

"In Q3 this year, there were around 50 million smartphones shipped in China"....

I think this is misleading as almost all products are already manufactured and made in China so no shipping is needed.

are you stupid?

apple makes one phone every 12 months.

samsung makes 20+, tv's, fridges, freezers etc. and meet different peoples needs.

Samsung have made all past iphones (chips, ram or what not) and have made the new iphone processor. (apple designed it).

contract will be over soon, and apple will have no one.

except for foxconn who are a joke.

Samsung are worth buying shares in!!!!

And you are still trying to say nothing new??? Only a sheeproid would say something like that!

Look at the benchmark! Each time Apple releases theirs, beats anything!

Even quardcore or 40MP noobkia camera, is a flop! NFC also!

Sammy should have gone with Apple, if Apple didnt choose NFC/MicroSD/FM-Radio because those are junks, WiFi with good software can do the same!

"Its like junkies, they know its bad for them but they still using!"

I am currently working in china. You know what, Samsung S III has released three different model with special contract price for three operator and system in china. iPhone with only 2 operator selling it. The key point is these two operators total market share in china is less than the one which don't sell iPhone.

"expensive" is the only word for apple so not for every user, market is made with the average buyers and its not for average buyers.
