I find this comment quite amusing.. "sheep" - "who continue to buy the exact same generic Galaxy phone that Samsung puts out" So get this.. The first iphone was released in 2007. Take a look at what it looked like then, and compare the very latest today.. people queue up by the million to by them.. NOW THOSE ARE SHEEP - ACTUALLY ZOMBIE WOULD BE A BETTER WORD.. so after 6 years (and counting) Apple still making the same boring generic phone go figure

That still doesn't say your samdung is anywhere near to Nokia or better. You're livimg in denial boy, you just don't understand what crap is and cannot make a difference between quality products and crap. No problem. Just go with the heard and keep your sasung in bulletproof vest, otherwhise it may bracke from holding it to ruff. Peace

"LG was a star performer as global shipments doubled year-over-year to 12.1 million units in Q2 2013," Strategy Analytics analyst Linda Sui said in a statement. "LG captured 5 percent share and maintained its position as the world's third largest smartphone vendor for the second straight quarter. The popular Optimus and Nexus models have been the main drivers of LG's success. If LG can expand its retail presence and marketing in major countries such as the U.S. or China, LG could quietly start to challenge Apple for second position." However, that may difficult to do in the coming quarter,

And let him experience how 'premium' LG's build quality and let him know how LG treat their phones with slow and super buggy updates. He's gonna regret it someday and we'll laugh at him when the day comes.
