Real business people don't use iphones. They use Nokia Symbian devices with true onboard 2-way call recording, local private data syncing and most importantly. Best call quality and reception which is the most important part of phone!

As for Samsung. They have no clue wtf they're doing. They just dumb ANY shit under the galaxy name and hope that one sticks. They are completely degrading the galaxy moniker with so many variants both cheap crappy and high-end and beyond. That it's becoming a fucking joke! If it wasn't for the fact that the other players are even MORE stupid, by stubbornly negating microSD-card slots and removable batteries as per consumer's whishes, they'd be gone long time ago. But they got those 2 things right which became the base of their success. Because lets be honest a cheap looking plastic phone for +800 euros???! Come on!

Some products can be restricted to regions by perceived demand or marketing/sales strategy in that area, or cost/legislation even of differently specified items. Maybe they can only produce limited numbers of one type and they decide to keep those for home markets.

It did indeed take til after the 3GS. You need to recheck your source. That means check not just comment back saying not true.
And yes it was Froyo. Again check.
You keep negating what I said bringing up the same things and even telling me what I am telling you is wrong. Why dod you always do that? And try answering instead of ignoring or negating that question.
No I said IOS didn't and still didnt. But kept things to the the beginning. You brought up how Android no longer does in retaliation. Weather it's in the playstore now was never my point.

Again no. MMS came after the 3GS. The second Android phone had all that on top of whatever it already had. And it also had third party apps. So your point is beyond invalid. No I do not recall the name. Look it up. And For the billionth time there also was a steady growth of phones. Ones with more memory. Nice try scapegoating me as the liar. So no....IOS was not better. And even then Android gave you choice.

You are still negating most of what I said. Why must you always do that?

And FB is not an excuse for that. Ummm...Adobe flash was available in play store. IOS was also out before, but it took years to get most of those things.
Android had Froyo by may 2010. That had App2SD. And again by then you had more space on more phones and you had 3rd party apps to help you do it before then. WITHOUT root. That was also when Flash became OFFICIAL.
Where are you getting this whole three years thing????
Stop negating what I am saying. This is what I mean by Apple and IOS is perceived to have been and had more than it really was.

In my opinion s4 came to the market too early.. When you rush, things can go sideways... Oh boy S4 proper is now coming out with the SnpD.800. Well thank GOD i followed my gut and didn't buy one.. S4 octa is a flop in way of expectations... Latest GSMarena tests say battery and benchmarks not up to SnpD.600 LTE version.. Now exynos-5 ver.2 is coming to Note.3
Guys be patient My advice either buy S5 next year which which i, believe will come with total new design or buy the Note 3

Bad move from Samsung. Such big fragmentation of their flagship will result only in frustration and disorientation of customers.

And video recorder and video player are two different things. It took apple 3 iphones to get one that took video, and the ios update after it to include MMS. Which I believe was also what brought copy and paste. It did not have a video recorder app if it did not have a video camera.
Android you could download a third party video player. It was less than a year to get a stock one and the next phone had a video recorder.
But it did not take three years for third party apps or larger spaced phones.

I am a business man and i have the iPhone 5 32GB and Samsung Galaxy s4 32GB and both phones are very good but te difference is in this: iPhone 5 i easy to use while Samsung Galaxy s4 is very futuristic phone but in a good way i think that someone should create a phone that is both easy to use and futuristic because people are looking for a phones like that but if you use more phones i recommend you to use the iPhone for a business because its easier to use it while you can have your Samsung for being cool if you know what i mean
