During the launch the makers of Infinity Blade described how easy and beneficial it was to convert to 64bit.

Apple, the leader the rest follow.

Samsung with it's boring S2>S3>S4 iterative upgrades, where about the only thing that changed was the screen and how much memory their preinstalled crap software takes up.

Shipped not sold, Samsung does not release "sold" figures, it releases "shipped" figures.

20 million shipped in 60 days vs 9 million sold in 3 days.

" Your comment about S4 sales being disappointing...you heard that where?"

After two month when s4 was released it sold 20 million just in two months. That news came over three months ago. So samsung lied about 20 million mark or samsung havent sold 10 million sgs4 in last three months, which is very bad numbers.

"The Apple iPhone 5c was rumored long before its premiere as an affordable alternative to Apple's flagship, helping the company storm the world's biggest market - China. Unfortunately the case turned out to be different and the 5c was priced quite close the iPhone 5s flagship." - GREEDY BASTARDS! THEY DESERVE IT AT APPLE!
