Even Apple user like me award samsung for good quality control and powerful, creative and innovative company. Just end of the day don't compare sony to Samsung or Apple . Sony is just a small company that died so many years ago

Every phone manufacturer is reporting financial loses and you know why , its because the entire world is going trough a financial crisis and with this in mind you realise that ppl is getting smarter at spending their money. And that translates to a longer interval updates for smart gadgets so lower income for companies such as samsung and not only, companies that lately like to invest more money in advertising rather than true innovations . On the other hand i do appreciate samsung for listening to its customers regarding the removable battery and sd card .

Samsung made one of there biggest mistakes with the S4,by not offering the F.M radio on it,thats why the Sales of the S4 was not so good,an people kept hold of the S3 or looked at phones with the radios on it,Will we get the F.M Radio on the S5 or not?,thats what alot of people will be hoping for from Samsung,then loads will be buying the S5

No LG no HTC no bb, no Huawei etc.... Amongst the top were samsumg, Apple, Google and Microsoft. Sony is on 54 spot. That's according to Forbes. Samsung being on top is 4 Times bigger than Sony.
