Probably talks will fail. Samsung is too stubborn to have talk with. I think this case will go to court and Samsung will lose.
Samsung maybe feel like their android domination is closing its end and they maybe will try to get in windows phone. Ofc apps in wp 8 are low but with Samsung moving to wp wholeheartedly, this can change fast.

... moreUmm Samsung needs Microsoft's patented technology and used it is the bottom line. It's nothing to do with the other way around.
At the this point they're making money whether Samsung makes another WP8 device or not.

Nokia have all but abandoned microSD expansion and removable battery in its premium phone, in addition Samsung phones are more user-friendly, eg camera settings you can select the resolution of the photo to the maximum and not in the Lumia 930 only 20Mp pics
There seems to be a conflict as both the tabs and Galaxy are established Android devices and a cheaper Samsung Windows phone may affect a more profitable Android sales
Microsoft imo needs Samsung more than Samsung needs Microsoft but there is a benefit for Samsung if Xiaomi, Huawei etc continue to take sales away from Samsung.
There is no one offering similar specs on Windows as those offered by Xiaomi on Android
Any high end phone on Windows will come essentially as a standalone device due to what is called an app store
App as in appalling, say you get the phone you want, basic apps eg camera burst or many of the apps you have on your Android phone are not there
Apps are still only being written for IOS and Android
The number one complaint about Windows is the app store Microsoft is living in denial even if it could secure the Windows version of the S5 the use of the S5 is hamstrung by the app market
Microsoft is everywhere, huh? Paying Microsoft for Android phones made. Gee. Will Microsoft be paying Samsung for Windows phone made?
samsung at the moment have all the power to even request money because how poorly windows phone is faring.
in the end i believe samsung is aiming not to pay anything to microsft and it will likely success
