They have a phone with a battery that beats even the Moto Razr Maxx, qhd 4.5" IPS LCD, Jellybean, a gig RAM, dualcore cortex A9 1.2 that cost only $250.

i am in the favour of samsung , i think now samsung should take decision to reduse price of old phone set and upcoming new should not more expensive because today 70% people buying old high end samsung mobile and only very little part of people buy new samsung phone set its only because samsung new and upcoming phone set is very expensive,
so best of luck to samsung for upcoming phone set.

Losing a little market share doesn't mean the beginning of the end. Especially not when you're hitting a record breaking profit season. In fact, I believe it might even be the little drop before the take off, you know, SINCE THE MONSTER IS ABOUT TO BE UNLEASHED!!! Muahahahahaha!

Lenovo isn't even on GSMArena's list of brands down the left hand side of the GSMArena site!

Its good to see the smaller companies step up their game,it helps provide consumers with better phones,but it doesn't mean samsung and apple have fallen as others are already suggesting. would love to see nokia and lg make a comeback though...
