Having 5.5 percent of the market is no success at all, they can barely survive, watch out and see how they go bankrupt.

I dont know this for fact yet but I read somewhere that Samsung stopped making that retina display for mac and crapple had to jump to LG. I love LG but they cannot keep up with the quality and volume as SAmsung under crapples pressure and many users face problems now

I got to say that EVERYTHING good about an iPhone is actually made by Samsung like the chipset and the screen that most iPhone fanboys love to brag about.

So would that mean the Apple fanboys actually love Samsung coz in my opinion apple would be nothing without Samsung. Look at the facts, if Samsung stops making the chipset for Apple were would apple be? What’s the point of having an OS without a chipset to run it? Even if Apple gets another Company to make its chipsets, how would the actual device operate in terms of lags etc.

Further to that somebody stated "Samsung is nothing without Android" this is a load of bullsh!t simply because if that was true then other Smart phone manufacturers such as Sony, Moto and HTC etc would have been just as successful as Samsung, however this is not true, simply because Samsung actually utilizes the Android software the best and compliments this with the hardware and features that they put into their devices.

Hate it or love it, it still is the truth.....
