hidyatkhann, 16 Jun 2012Samsung is on the list because they copy cats@hidyatkhann: Yes, Samsung are copycats. See they have even copied Galaxy Note from IPhone 10.
Anonymous, 16 Jun 2012you are wrong! the best brands are sony, nokia, LG & RIMare you on the same planet

4ssgs, 16 Jun 2012I agree, when you combine the sales of Apple AND Samsung they outsell HTC.
HTC paved the wa... moreApple and Samsung outsell HTC at "the high end phone market" respectively, even though HTC high end phones are cheaper than Galaxy S series and Iphones.
Therefore the market tells us that Apple and Samsung, each of them separately, are better brands than HTC that's what I meant.
Both, Nokia and Samsung have had the full range(low to high) even before HTC made android phones.
What HTC is doing is endlessly releasing cheap mid to high phones and keeps pressure on Apple and Samsung to make better "mid - high end phones", such as S3.
Though I think it's a pity that HTC hasn't able to manage to outsell or make better phones than either Apple or Samsung.

... moreI agree, when you combine the sales of Apple AND Samsung they outsell HTC.
HTC paved the way for Samsung to release countless phones every year from the very low to the high specification.
Apple have their market share by releasing ONE device and improving it.
[deleted post]It was u only that was shouting nokia nokia with special mention of "duh".
Now that u have nothing to prove and that u r outsensed u went back to apple n samsung and btw imo these two firms do deserve their top position coz they r better than sony or ur duh ! nokia.
utouh, 16 Jun 2012hey wake up, just take a look the experia mini pro update to ICS, very bad update OS. GB is go... moreYou mad bro?its working great on my Neo V.
Oh wait i forgot,people these days dont like lags on their smartphone,even a tiny bit of it.
Get over it,Every phone lags,stop whining like a little kid.
Yani, 16 Jun 2012Hmm... troubling news indeed!
I know my next phone will not be a Scamsung (I have a SGS1).
W... moreI'm glad you are willing to take the hit of buying an inferior brands smartphone in order for future innovation. With folk like you about I feel safe in the knowledge I can keep buying Samsung high end phones and getting the best possible tech right now thout jeopardizing the next Gen research.
Sir i doff my cap.
P.S hope your sacrifice doesn't end in you having to by too much of a crap phone.
I'm a Samsung fan! I don't like apple. Apple don't have adobe flash player, common design, and overpriced! ANDROID PHONES ROCKS!

>Still outsold by both
Nope. The market disagrees with you.
Anonymous, 16 Jun 2012U mad
Rather than replying incoherent sentences, you didn't name anything Sony achieved in ... moreOne can easily make out whose mad.
Ur just mad n frustrated that ur fav. Company isn't doing well enough.u r just a sad loyalist who won'nt switch to better phones but keep critisizing them and keep on clinging to ur brand even when u could find better ones.
U find sony phones to be plastic bricks and r happy with samsung's build quality?htc prefer build quality to performance and luk where they stand.i don't give a damn about build quality and so do many people and that's y there r more androids around than symbian.and btw how do u define build quality -gs2 with all plastic manages to survive falls better than iphone 4s.even my se lww has fallen many times but has been working fine.for u build quality is all about metal casing or unibody that doesn't even provide battery access and expandable memory isn't it?.It's more about the performance of the device.infact u r just a hater who just won't luk beyond ur gud old nokia.it's more important to provide gud handsets than just innovating but making poor devices.if u are so keen -
Sony has developed DLNA.i think u know what that is.samsung n htc have inked a deal with sony to provide playstation certification in their future handsets too.u can search more on the net but i think that's enough.now what relevent things have nokia done with it's handsets in these times?nothing i guess atleast it isn't translating into sales.i liked nokia some time back.but what did they do?withdrew from symbian,killed meego and even meltemi.and now gone to wp which is as closed n uncustomizable as the iOS.
Yani, 16 Jun 2012I meant to write stay away from Apple and Samsung for your next phone.
And for the Nokia an... moreName me one brand that is making better phones than Apple and Samsung.
The market speaks itself and your buttmad lengthy argument is invalid.
I meant to write stay away from Apple and Samsung for your next phone.
And for the Nokia and RIM fanboys out there:
If those two giants go down it's only good for the consumer!
Why? They've become too big and too slow to adapting to new changes (khm... MeeGo anyone?! + high licence fees for both of their app shops --> this hurts small time developers like me and you that have great ideas for your phone and just couldn't execute them because the submission price is too high).
And they just aren't innovative enough anymore and this hurts the consumer in the long run --> If it weren't for Apple we would still be very happy with our Symbian phones for 500€/$.
And THINK before you ask what would be wrong with this picture so you don't make a fool out of yourself!!!
Hmm... troubling news indeed!
I know my next phone will not be a Scamsung (I have a SGS1).
When you see that only two firms collect most of the sales and profits you just stop supporting them, except if you don't value your wallet and don't mind being a sheep.
If this continues, in the long therm (3-5+ years), there will be less innovation and higher prices, because there will be no competition.
I firt thought I would recommend some other smaller alternative firms like HTC or LG, but it's pointless. Try to do some basic research before buying a new phone and if possible stay away from those two brands.
This just shows that manufacturers have to pay for their mistakes (locked bootloader from HTC & terrible support from LG). In this developing new tech you need to execute your every move in favor of the mass developers and customers, if you're too slow to react to their needs and the ever changing market you might end up like Nokia or RIM.
