You already know "the true story" from the iMedia. LOL
Read it again, tough. It was Taiwan's firm. Hired by Samsung. Samsung deny in front the court to give them such instructions.
It's clear apple-ish ad-plot by HTC and Taiwan. Samsung don't need HTC's 1% market share. Wake up.

Samsung has been a criminal enterprise for a long time. This is just another example. Korean chaebols tend to be quite corrupt. A look at their structure would show it to be quite similar to the structure of the Italian Mafia. Corruption at all levels shouldn't be surprising (and just like the Mafia, respect and honor exist only when there's nothing at stake)

It's not Samsung. Actually Taiwan firm was doing that. And about taiwan's firm HTC. Right? In Thaiwan.

Ask yourself , why only in Taiwan happen this scandal? And nowhere else?

I smell here a plot against Samsung. Apple-ish way, including the state(as Apple used Obama). Exactly after HTC and Apple made a secret contract.

Why should Samsung attack a dead dog like HTC? To take the HTC's 1% market??? ROTFL
It's looks more like HTC ad campaign.(with apple-ish dirty tricks)

I'm absolutely disgusted by this. This is a reason for me to not buy any Samsung phones anymore and I will stick to my promise. I hate these kind of under the belt sneaky and mean actions by a company.
