Dear GSMArena, I hate to say this (as I was a die-hard fan of Nokia Symbian), but when are you going to put Samsung's name above the name of Nokia on the left side where the producers' names are located? I will always hate Nokia for ditching Symbian and I want them to see go down in every aspects of life. GO TO HELL NOKIA.

> In reply to [deleted post]Android 4 year? That says it all anyone with knowledge will know to ignore you the next time. You don't even know how old the Os you are using is but hey its always good to move with the crowd, that way you don't need to think yourself. Android fanboys are hypocrites, they talk about how easy it is to customize android and then go back and say Android is only buggy cos of the likes of htc's sense or samsung's touchwize. What now, i thought you guys said the strong point of android is that the oems can stand out from others, so why the hell do i have to install a launcher from the play-store to avoid lags even though i like the launcher the oem put there. You guys should at least not only talk about the advantages and also talk about the disadvantaged, its as simple as that.
I always say this and i will never stop saying it, no OS is perfect, each as it flaws, if you disagree then you are avoiding reality!

Not unless they also start making android phones
Samsung can make both types for customer needs I feel Nokia has lost it's way
thinking Windows phones will take over but we know they won't (I still have my 2 Nokia's)

Samsung reigns supreme. The rest of the old rivals are dead in the water. Huawei are going to be the nearest challengers for the Crown now.

As for samsung being the big dog in the smartphone/mobile market, I say good for them, makes me even more proud to hold my note up to macboys. Where when the s4 comes out I'll make sure and take it up on preorder.

I hear rumors samsung is gonna score big with their tizen OS. Imo, what better way to introduce the OS than on their flagship phone....the galasy S4(or how I would call it, 'SIV'). Which means Tizen has to have something android doesnt...which, for starters, would be better hardware utilization. Now just imagine software like that running on the SIV ALONG with the power efficient OCTA core, ALONG with the good battery samsung phones are know to have.
