What dangerous I had experienced was one of my Samsung feature phone with color display was taken by a robber. :-(

Now I've learned I don't bring my SGS3 to markets were pickpocketers are many on sighting around corners to their next victims.

Most of the Android users have more number of samsung smartphones than any other devices. If there are around 60% of Android user's in the world about 40% of it use samsung devices.

Hello guays "it is not the matter of copying something that what people say about is not a is the world largest electronic company and it is fruit of efforts of samsung engineers that the company is able to ship appox 350m smartphones in just one year than any other company in the world does.just look at galaxy devices,even they are made of plastic but people prefere them over apple (even they are made of aluminum a metal which was once as expensive as gold )....why? Coz there is something concealed inside.... Something big...think over it...

what i mean is maybe next year around,their performance and sales will be different, had you read the news about the google's plan on competing samsung high end android phones?

google owns android, what if google will suddenly withdraw and prohibit samsung from using their os? what will samsung do? we all know that samsung is dependent on their present operating system and that is why they are gaining the market share.

do you get what i mean?

But look what happened THIS YEAR. Look at the sales figures and performance. Thanks for haters, without them Samsung will never improve.

I wish Samsung good luck too.

** I've been hating Apple since then.. but nothing much has changed. LOL

There is nothing wrong with copying or coming out with same ideas.. More or less is the latter for samsung.

Its the patents and over expensive loyalities that is causing the lawauits..

You can get away with copying if u pay.. But most patent holders charge alot

they are only good in shipping not in selling,

they are too optimistic because their samsung galaxy S3 sells very well maybe and now they are planning on shipping 500m phones globally,

i wish you luck samsung because not all the time your products will be praised by your avid customers, there are plenty of competitors.

indeed, google is on the move making the X phone partnership with motorola and they are marking that this phone will be your rival on your rumored galaxy s4..

and be wary to nokia and microsoft and htc, their are fascinately growing well.

goodluck samsung

Second, Samsung does also not invent LCD/Oled/CPU/GPU/2G 3G/4G and a whole other stuff they just copy.
