Boooooooooooooo.

Didn't think Samsung would go so low as to indunge in smear campaigning even after having most of the smartphone market worldwide.

I did always hate Samsung for all their phones from INR 10k (S duos) to INR 40k (S4) look alike, but never thought they would go so so so low.

Do not read only the headlines of the iMedia.

By the way, I don't care about Samsung or any other brand. I just buy the best for me, and hate dirty plots.
