Samsung makes the worst phone like sgs3 or note2 which always tops the market..... I dont know y people choose a samsung product- full in features n value for money over an iproduct- nothing much just an expensive tag

U right i m a fool n others r also fool to use samsung product....... u know we r senseless people we always read and find out each n every detail n waste a lot of time to buy a phone after all this waste of time we buy a samsung product.......n other smart people in ur words buy an iphone or nokia or htc

The whole world feels that samsung makes good products except few people who just hate companies on their names without even bothering to look at the features of a particular phone.

I am proud to be a touchwiz-samsung's user interface (for samsung haters) user

but u cant ignore the fact that this is the same company wich just showed nokia and apple stars in daylight(no hard feelings for nokia but for apple-crapple)and i know haters will hate and criticize my words but u know who is winning the war

There are no real malware for Android on Google Play, and even "Superuser" is classified as "malware" even though it does no harm at all!
Samsung improves Android, and that is the reason why it is number 1!

When I was using Nokia E61, Samsung had just started making feature phones and I thought why would anyone even try to do something that is one and only Nokia's domain. Then I moved to E71 and then Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note. I realize how wrong I was then.

That's like saying car manufacturers copy each other because they all have round steering wheels. Not to mention that every company that uses android uses their own UI touches.

> In reply to maiaramdan @ 2012-12-19 16:59 from jtQ0 - click to readOh my, sorry to tell you but My father is also an adult and he's a fan of Sony Ericsson which is now Sony. Sony's build quality is not great when compared to Nokia but when compared to Samsung, OMG Sony is freaking great.!

His K850i(he already gave it to me after 1year of using it) and K750i(to my brother) before both have problems with the keypad and earpiece but I and my brother is taking very good care of them same with my 3y/o Nokia 7500 Prism but I haven't encountered any problem with it up to now and I'm proud of it since it is my secondary phone next to my Cyan Nokia Lumia 800, my lost Nokia 6020 is also 3y/o when it slipped out of my pocket but it's condition is still very good except for the fading paint of the joystick.

Sony and Nokia are miles ahead better than Samsung, Samsung must thank Google for Android for their success bec. if it wasn't for Android, they'll still be stuck with their toyphones.

it's time to admit it, nokia bid for the wrong horse, their platform symbian+maemo was a secure third place, now they may not even fifth.
