By your logic Apple fanboys must be even richer: iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, iPad 1, 2, 3, 4, and now iPad mini. And each costs more than the eqiivalent Sammi product. And this is not mentioning ipods.
Samsung fanboys are so rich .... S1 S2 .. Note 1 S3 Note 2 ... now S4??! omg.. the amount of cash spent..
Truth be told technology and products cycle at times Motorola,Nokia,Samsung.To be the best you have to be on your toes and give the customers what they want and bring in something special at timeS.Go Sammy i have a S3 and hoping the S4 will be EXTRAORDINARY.

i hope that Samsung continue to develop and bring a whole raft of new features with the sgs4, i think the sgs3 was fantastic, until i got the sgs3 LTE and its ridiculously fast,
i hope that Samsung don't increase the size of the phone to much if they choose to increase the size of the screen, this could easily be achieved by moving the home button to the side and could also be used as a camera button, the speaker could be moved higher up and the front camera more centralized, giving nearly all the required space.
to all the people who said the screen size will affect the sales, u r not able to judge a book by its cover.
i owned the sgs, sgs2, and when the sg3 was announced, i thought it was a bad move to go a lot bigger screen size, but i was wrong, and i bet a lot of the 43 million other sgs3 owners also thought so as well.
sure this phone will not be for everybody, but for my personal needs, its outweighs the iphone 5 in EVERY single department, that's not to say the iPhone is crap, lets face it, its a lovely piece of kit, but its complete unwillingness to play nice with anybody else really lets the side down, i think that if apple was more open, in that sense where you can play whatever music you want, or watch whatever video you wish, without having to jump through hoops to do it i think they would have a larger fan base, in my eyes the iPhone inferior because of its multimedia capabilities, and this is where the galaxy really destroys any competition, that being said that is only my opinion because that's what i want my phone for, multimedia
sammy is king... next is what??
next is 2013... also next is galaxy S4...

I assure you, if Apple went Samsung's way, they would attract current Samsung fans and lose their current dedicated fans over time.
But as marketing does the real thing, the change would be very slow and maybe not even noticeable.

Compliments to Samsung!.and thats another reason why Samsung work harder on the galaxy s4 to be really the greatest smartphone ever!!!!!.and the 5inch display will gonna be excellent, but they must take the 2 more inches just only from the bezel, and not from the whole size!.and so then it will really be great!!!!!!!.and everyone will really love it!!!!!!!!!
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2013Keep dreaming Sony will kill Samsung soon plus new IOS7 with new iPhone 6.hahahaha next iphone is become android firmware with real multitasking and very smooth animation okie..mark in your mind your Iphone is powered by Samsung specially the Ram and Processor and also made by China not California..Stop become Moron Bro.
While I love Samsung, we need more competitors or we'll end up with a duopoly, Apple & Samsung, which is bad.
Anonoymous, 25 Jan 2013true, like me for 2013 ill go for Sony Xperia Z, the king was born and im sorry for sammy, you... moregood luck for hard time rooting/jailbreaking your soon to be phone.
i love samsung because their phones are user friendly. they will never leave us unlike those greedy money makers.
you bought a phone then buy latest one for upgrades
vergil, 25 Jan 2013samsung makes phones with strong specs...but the built quality and looks of the phones r unimp... moreI agree on average build quality on the S2 and note but on the Note 2 the build quality is first rate (even after 4+ months of use).
As for appearance, personally the metallic grey on the Note 2 looks great.
I am too sure that Samsung S4 going to rock over Sony Z. New versions of android coming soon so more new features, applications, hd games are on there way which need more processor power & ram.
I will surely feel happy if my phone can handle anything smoothly so at least i am going to buy s4.
Sony z is really a nice mobile but as i know Sony is only good in cams & not in other areas compare to other brands as well i really don't care my phone is water proof or not coz i don't want to use it in water as well i will take good care of my costly cell.
Dust proofing is good feature but still i really don't care much about it over computing power. other features are common & may be only new for Sony.
When you said the Note 2 lags you confirmed to everyone you were a few sausages short of a BBQ.
girlteki, 25 Jan 2013congratulations..! for now...:), well said, especially the last 2 words
Samsung Galaxy S4 will be this year best seller again, but Sony looks like they have a good phone in the Experia Z & ZL which could give the S4 a run for it money.
HTC will proberly struggle to make any profit again this year even with the M7 & whatever else they bring out.
Nokia might have a good year this time around, with more Lumia's to be announced soon.
RIM more likley to be bought out by Lenovo, even if BB10 takes off .
As for Apple they bring out either iphone 5S or 6 and make out it's the best thing since slice bread, by adding a couple of features that been on other smartphones for years ie NFC ect.
