Terrible sportsmanship on Samsungs behalf. dirty and underhanded. For me this has left a huge dent in Samsungs reputation. I don't like to deal with this type of company

i have been noticing this same thing after alot of praises i saw s3, i did nt know reason why people praise this much S3, same happened with s4, the paid people do once and then the stupids who buy over these comments become fan boy bcz they have same device and come to defend samsung, and then they become so fan that they buy even next device from same company, thats why after galaxy S i did nt buy any of samsung and even other companies devices i judge on the basis of my need + what attracts me, whether it be any company other than samsung, and i do nt buy for the same reason as the title of the article

Hahaha...$hitDung got their just desserts. Copycats rips off others patents and passes them as their own. And when someone makes a better product, they just try to run them down.

It's a rule of GSMArena to not to bash other brands and models but he was doing that badly. Well! They know better what they are doing.
