First of all, if Apple "believed" that they're the best/number 1, they don't even need to sue. Go ahead and claim that they copied this and that and blah blah.. but hey, this is technology, the real world! eveybody owns it, eveyone is entitled for it. Since this never-ending sueing started, the healthy competition in the mobile industry vanished.

iPhone is like a person who is beautiful, sexy and elegant on the outside.. but what about the inner side of it? inferior specs, etc.. its like a person pretending to be good.

Samsung sold more than 80mil smartphones in the last quarter alone. The galaxy s4 alone sold 40mil, which is more than all iPhone models combined last quarter. Yes, Apple nerver reveals how many of the latest iPhones were sold in their misleading "total" iPhone count.

So you would be proud if smartest thief come inside your house? Right?

Or you are proud that you grocery store, charge you more and earn more than the same grocery store in the neighbor quarter, for the same goods or less choice.

Only sick minds can think so. Wake up iboys.

I will be not surprised if they count again the mobile browsers of the phones, when most of Samsung devices use desktop mode.

I nave googled this your sentence , and didn't come anything.

YES. G3 outsold iphone last year and it was THE PHONE Of The Year.

This year Samsung was not afraid to produce many phones together with Galaxy S4: Note 3, Galaxy Active, Galaxy Mega 5+", Galaxy Mega 6+", Grand, - all of them better than any iphone. Even the low end: Galaxy Mini, Ace , Galaxy Zoom , are not worse than any iphone.
And Samsung is competing with hundreds Android OEMs for.
iPhone5S is the only high(arguably)-end iOS phone. Right?
