If, Samsung can shift 60 million smartphones then I can't see any reason why they might have a problem selling 100 million.
[deleted post]Why did you say that?
And I think every media entities have their own side. So we can't expect that other websites is different from GSM ARENA.
It just happened that this website is constantly updating news related to gadgets. That's why this site became a favorite past time for geeks.
As myself I don't care what website it is as long as I find the news interesting to talk to so I joined the forum.
box143, 16 Feb 2013I just wish the S4 would come out with a solid body finish with strong material made of toughe... moreThe glass body of Nexus 4 breaks easier, and the metal chassis of the iPhone 5 scratches faster than the plastic on the Note II, which actually improved the resistance over the S3. As a matter of fact, the toughest flagship, the Lumia 920 is also plastic, so Sammy just needs to drop the shiny paint and adopt a slightly thicker, unibody design, otherwise the S4 is good the conquer the world.
If only Samsung could deliver the best, stronger and elegant body build of its smartphone, then other Android OEMs and Apple would be thrown out of the dust. The end story of iPhones and Apple may just be a part of history in smartphone segment.
In my point of view, many people from the middle to elite class is always having a second thought of getting a Samsung smartphone because of its build quality. To be honest it has the poorest and cheapest body quality compared to other smartphone.
So I wish Samsung has to rectify this aspect. Because Samsung really already ahead in the processing power, battery life and feature segments that other OEMs are still trying to catch up.
Samsung has a good reputation of only a smartphone manufacturer that willingly throw out most advanced features such as direct call, multi view and pop up play. The only OEM that keeps the most up-to-date update of current android OS and throws the (most) fastest processor in smartphone segment.
But Samsung mobile falls short in delivering the best quality of material of its body build. My preference of a strong and good quality casing point out to toughened glass or stainless steel or aluminum
I just wish the S4 would come out with a solid body finish with strong material made of toughened glass, stainless steel or aluminum.
If the casing is really strong build quality and elegant as iPhones, end of story and Apple would be just a history.
That's the best recipe of Apple it has in its iPhones that's why it never slow down its sales because people in elite and middle class is looking for a things or gadget with good inside and outside attributes.
Note 3, 16 Feb 2013I'm serious, it doesn't lag.
Don't know whether the one you used has carrier issues, but m... moreI agree with you, the only possibilities for such phones to "lag" would be :
-some crap carrier rom
-some test phone always on like in a phone shop (never updated and prolly some early sample)
-some crap phone from a friend who would be installing bloatware
-some defective screen
-and finally, the modified behavior of touchscreen due to last Apple's class action, if ppl remember, Samsung had to modify the way fingers are registered by the screen for some actions like scrolling (not only bouncing back effect..).
And to finish, anyway, every good nerd knows that Apple doesn't support everything on webpages (starting by flash and so on), hence the billion of apps replacing web, and so Apple phones may often get special optimizations...

jbpianist28, 16 Feb 2013That person is actually right, Nokia Lumia 920 is the best smartphone No, sorry. The 808 PureView is better than the Lumia 920.
It has way fewer restrictions and sideloads content (files, music, apps, video) easily. And with an additional 64GB microSD, you have have an even bigger storage space
Oh come on - snce the dawn of PDAs, thre was only one rule: display eal estate plus battery life. End of story. Samsung got the point. Apple didn't. As simple as that.

It is sad that after all of what people say, you still declare your self not a fanboy. Nokia lumia has allot of apps, and right now has more the 150000. Which, i can say is more then enough. Second, an app doesn't make a smartphone, quite at all. I reather have a great smartphone with less apps then a crap with milion useles apps. I think you don't understand the meaning of a good device. You test them all and found samdung being the best?:)). Yeah, right... Tell this to some kids.
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2013Note 2 lags.. period.
Your just too used to android environment or living in denial.
O... moreI'm serious, it doesn't lag.
Don't know whether the one you used has carrier issues, but my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE is perfect. No lag. Zip. Nada.
Sorry dude to disappoint.
I guess the Jelly Bean 4.1.2 must be just too awesome.
