gam30toronto, 23 Oct 2013ok iphone 4 got the latest ios7 update.
your S2 is on 4.1.2. and was told 4.2.X is coming.
... moreWTF are u saying, even the Iphone5 doesn't have the full features of ios7 compared to the Iphone5s, not to talk of Iphone4, Ipad 2 which basically got a theme update, so they can say all their devices upgrades to ios7.
I played Real racing 3 yesterday on my sisters Ipad4 and after about 45minutes it go really hot, I had to put it in its jacket. No device or phone manufacturer is perfect, Apple isn't perfect, Samsung isn't perfect, Sony isn't perfect but we all prefer either one.
Choose which one suits u and stop ranting about like deranged jackass
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2013Samsung has been resorting to this tactic for the past 2 years. They are posturing once again... moreYou realised what you said didn't make sense. Firstly, you said they used this tactic for the past 2 years. Say, you are right, but vendors do not keep purchasing phones from manufacturer if the phoned do not sell. Even if the expectation were overestimated, vendors would have learnt their mistakes 2 years ago, no? Second, why don't we see the same "inflated sales to vendors and not their party numbers" from other manufacturer? The reason is simply, there is no demand, only when there is demand, vendors would purchase from the manufacturer hence it is not wrong for Samsung to state their sales figure. They are not inflated because if they were, there will be sales return reflected on their financial statement. If that were the case 2 years ago, they would have not break their sales record on every quarters for the past two years. Stop sprouting nonsense.
Just brand/marketing strategy. Reason why people buy either Apple or Samsung is mainly the brand.
Samsung has been resorting to this tactic for the past 2 years. They are posturing once again using inflated numbers. Although 40 million might not be a lie, the sad thing is, Samsung only counts unit shipped out to suppliers and vendors only, and not actually numbers of their units reached out to customers.
So to be honest, they claim 40 million s4's sold, true, but do 40 million people actually have the s4? Probably not. Samsung used this tactic last year with the s3, they are doing it again with the s4, and no doubt they will use these false numbers again, with the s5 and probably the note 3. Inflated and false numbers. It's sad and weak marketing by a desperate company trying to make their flag ship look good. To be honest, the s4 has not sold as well as the s3. Give it a break Samsung. You guys are done.
Maez, 23 Oct 2013I dont know what to believe first samsung claims that s4 has a poor sales thats why samsung is... moreChannel stuffing. It's what Samsung did last year. Can't remember the specifics, but they announced they sold 30 mil or so in October last year. In Jan 13, they announced they sold 30 million. It took them 2-3 extra months for the inventory to reach consumers (remember the busy Christmas season is coming up).
I dont know what to believe first samsung claims that s4 has a poor sales thats why samsung is force to release s5 this early 2014. Now they are proud to say they have the highest sale and better than expected. Is this just a paid advertising.
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2013oh yeahhh...so u still use a nokia 1100 lol... good for u :)) Yeah I do have it in one piece and I still use it sometimes. But that's not the point. The guy whom I was replying to or I don't know if he is you challenged to beat that numbers and I just provided a link to beat those numbers. What's wrong with that?
i am not using the galaxy s4 but the phone style is better .... so in furture if i get the changes to buy
i prefer the s4 only .
GS4 is a peace of crap i am using it and regretting it why i get this phone. My previous IPHONE5 was a way better in performance. No laggs no abnormal shutdowns not apps crashing.

Samsung is smart enough to use an external software for their phones this will certainly slow down the process when it comes to updating. Due to these restrictions you would still wonder why Samsung made 30 type of phones a year. To get a bug fixed if you arent using a flagship? good luck on that.
gam30toronto, 23 Oct 2013Well. If you wanna go that far should apple be digging their aluminum from the ground instead ... moreNo one is that good then hah. It's not really nonsense since you mention if they are that smart or not smart. They probably had their reason be it not being cost effective to invest so much into something that you can readily get available to use, much to the same reason why Apple probably didn't do it cos it's cheaper to source for it.
Not that i've used it but having read article about the first iPhone (if that report were correct) it wasn't that fantastic as well and their collaboration with Motorola was a failure. Not trying to outsmart you but you seem trying to outsmart everyone.
AnonD-179696, 23 Oct 2013For me , you just a brainwashed apple fan, you talking about updates of galaxy series .what ab... moreFor you only, i am a brainwashed Apple Fan. To some, i was hired by Apple to comment on here and earn $20 per comment. If you notice i said the update was up to iphone 4. We all know that some updates are impossible for phones that are older than a certain time. So PLease don't say what about iphone 1 lolz That is not a valide argument because you never even put 1% of y our brain to it.
