One report said that he did it because he was bored, but he obviously expected to get some female response.

Well i've checked all over the internet about this story, and it doesn't mention what kind of "phone" this 22 year old Russian was carrying... It is however known that Samsung gave every Olympian a Note 3, but asked them to cover up their iphone logo's during opening ceremony... But S4 I don't know, where's your reference.

It's news because Phonearena want us to know that they are not biased as this article shows us that iPhones crash. In any case, I have no intention to start a flame war.
