Samsung announces record $8.5B profit for Q2 - read the full textSamsung announced a record $8.5 billion in operating profit, beating the $8.3 billion guidance it released early this month. That's up from the $7.9 billion from the previous quarter and $5.8 billion from the year ago quarter. Net profit was $6.99 billion. We were a little wary of reports that...

Samsung started from where,you think?by the way, man ,this is business. give credit or don't it is who delivers the goods what matters at the end of the day.the company may have been built up from scratch, who cares?Nokia made so many bad moves. their hardware quality went from excellent to worst in matter of a few years.who is to blame?Give credit to Apple for what?fleecing customers with trappings and restrictions?Or waging a patent war for such flimsy things as the design of a button?should give them.Lots of it.

My friend's four month old Galaxy S II freezes at boot and shuts off. They sell much but with poor quality.

LG and Sony are much better, IMO.

It was Android that revolutionized the world and Samsung profited from it. Samsung's own brain child Bada was a huge flop and so will be Tizen if they ever manage to release it. Samsung knows how to feed on the success of an OS but they can't make a great OS themselves. I'll give that credit to only Apple and Nokia (Symbian was great until Nokia got arrogant and stopped coming-up with quick updates and expanding OVI app store).

Sony Xperia Z and Sony Xperia SP are almost unbeatable bang for money at this point.

Problem is that I can buy S3 or One X for less money than SP.

It is an interesting idea about Nokia becoming no1. brand again, but I believe Samsung made too much of an impact on the modern society last few years to just be pushed aside by any other brand that easily... The days of Nokia are over...

None of that success is credited to samsung. you wanna see who's a real winner, look at the companies that started from ground up .. apple deserve credit, and nokia for completey starting from scratch.

nokia was a market leader for decades.. so dont come here and bash them just because they made a bad move. we will see true skils of samsung when they work on tizen.. and i gaurentee you, tizen wont survive very long.
