They may have many models, and although they do not have the Aura that Apple has, I have to congratulate Samsung for the wonderful models introduced, and at very decent price points for all smart phone users to enjoy. I am an Apple fanboy, but I certainly give due credit to Samsung for the marvelous job that they have done. Good job and good luck to Google on the Android, and without seconds , a great job to Apple . May your fortunes be as what Steve Jobs has done for this wonderful company.

Try explaining that to the many Samsung owners who continuously bash iPhones without justification. Try explaining that to the Samsung fans who now feel Samsung is the superior brand because the have outsold Apple. Sales don't mean anything if the products can't back up the numbers sold.
My point is that Apple may have less sales from range of handsets minuscule to Samsung. But the product quality and customer satisfaction is fully backed by this. Numbers games don't mean a superior brand. Yes Samsung are doing some things right. But you think these sales figures would be anywhere near Apple's if they only had 3 handsets?
Just one thing is important to say here:
Apple managed to sell 17 million smartphones ONLY WITH iPhone 3gs & iphone 4 mainly.
and samsung managed to sell only 23 million smartphones out of their BUNCH OF crap smartphones!!!
so imagine: apple OnlY with 2 phones and samsung with hundreds of crapphones!
get a life!

Samsung is doing better than Apple this quarter and that indicates they are doing things right. How can you say "this company should do this" without any credible analysis? Be a fan, not a fanboy. Apples does many thing right and well, but what they do isn't the best solution for every other company.

Apple introduced FaceTime but never once said "this is our greatest new invention". Nor have Apple claimed to be the best, their customers know what a good product it is.
As for Apple not being smart by not having hundreds of handsets....are you genuinely saying that a brand bringing out a phone or 2 a week is good? How did you work that out? What Samsung should be doing is bringing out a single phone that plenty of time and quality invested in it, to make it a unique and dedicated product. But oh no, Samsung wanna bring out the Galaxy S2, then other versions of this just to confuse and annoy Samsung owners, who have splashed their hard earned money on a Samsung phone. Too many phones, not the best quality, Samsung are the best at playing the numbers game to make people believe they are the best.
Apple on the other hand bring out a great phone that can satisfy the user for a while and not make them think "that other phone is better". Why? Because iPhones are quality, well made phones that compete with the best and maintain a high reputation.

I had a premium made Nokia 8800 Arte and that was an amazing phone. But unfortunately Nokia need something major to happen with their OS for smartphones to make them compete with iPhones and Androids. Windows is not a bad step to take, but I reckon sales would shoot through the roof if they entered the Android world.
No matter what happens apple is still much better than samsung. I have been a samsung user for the past year and i was sick and tired of it. And now i have become an apple user and feel that apple is way better than samsung in both design and most importantly performance.
Nokia Fanboy PRO, 05 Nov 2011Amen to that! It took Samsung so many phones and a release each week just to become number 1. ... moreAt least you can choose from many models!! Nokia make only a few phones!! Grow up people! Samsung is making a good job. It's very clever to make many models.
Linda Barrabee, a research director for Connected Intelligence explained in a statement:
"Windows Phone 7 has a way to go before consumers really understand what it is. But with the right marketing mojo, apps portfolio, and feature-rich hardware, Microsoft could certainly improve its standing and chip away at Android’s dominant market position."
[deleted post]This is based on previous quarter, before iPhone 4S launch, and before the Nokia WP7 wave of phones. Things will look very different in just a few months time. Already you just need to type "Nokia" in google and you can see all the buzz it is generating in the news headlines.
WP7 is going to soar in sales, and Android is unfortunately with the most to lose in this particular case. 2012 will be a very different landscape for the smartphone scene.

What they claimed is how they ... moreAgreed, I really don't like talking about negatives of other brands, but Samsung is always a special case. I believe many Samsung employees are on these comment boards, twisting facts, apart from upvoting Samsung, and downvoting all other rival products (Look at the unnatural amount of voting on Samsung products), just as how they were caught in their fake viral campaign in Sweden.
Very shameful company and dirty.
First of all congrats samsung for this deserving position..
I am not a samsung fan/worker..
I just praise the hard worker.
So dont misguide of below contents...
And people who wont accept this as a achievement for them some basic rules for marketing..
1. Market wont have unique customers in terms of financial.
2. Market have different variation of carriers.
3. Market have different flavour of taste in terms of smartphones.. Like someone like phone of
A) bigger /Lower/Accomodate size
B) high resolution
C) thinner in width/less weight
D) Media version/Sports Version., etc...
So people as a company you have to understand more than this.. Not like stupid apple who targeting only rich people..
Apple is not a smartphone..
1. Can it transfer data via bluetooth to other brand
2. Why micro sim card
3. DivX/XVID format can it play
4. Wat about adobe flash..
List is on.. So stop praising..
Use your brains.,
If you want to be No 1. Like Samsung..
Then use your brain like samsung..
Thanks for your patience..
hope i reach to those doubtfull mind...

What they claimed is how they implemented it across their device range from the iPhone, to the iPod Touch, to the iPad, and to the Mac Book line, is better than the competition. You're twisting the facts to fit your Samsung fanboyism agendas.

samsung got many models coz they build for all range level of people. but for poor people, no iphone for them. u think that is brilliant? iphone expensive for a reason, front and back glass and allu body, thats it! inside is stupid.
same goes to 'oversize ipod' ( ipad ).
their stupid bluetooth, just work with certain device mostly apple product only. crap syncing with only itunes. we dont need itunes in our pc coz its not the best player. is that u called it 'smart'?? yeah happy customer feedback proved that..coz most of them like 80percent they dont know about android. Android is Super Customize OS, to use android, u need an android phone, and some brain!
nokia is better than iphone, friendly user, easy syncing. and till now, iphone can't even beat nokia N8's camera. and the most important thing..they are affordable to own. make sure you know what you are going to talk about. dont just talk crap here

It took Samsung so many phones and a release each week just to become number 1. It's really laughable and their fans sees this so-called triumph the best thing that ever happened to their beloved brand. Samsung isn't the best. It's business practices is worst than Apple and yet their fans sees this rotten Samsung as the best. Pffft
Well, Samsung is the best, I admit, when it comes to copying Apple. Yes, they're the best copyist.
