That isn't much of a fine for a huge company like Samsung, that is almost certainly less than the head of Marketing bonus for the year....

I always knew this.. My s4 gave me like such a horrible time, my HTC one x was a gem of a phone compared to s4..

Samsung is not worth half of what it has been portrayed as..

Rule #1: when you get caught, don't ever admit it. That's would be the next news, "Samsung denies accusations" in 5 4 3.....
