Oh please. Apple sucks for overcharging customers on a phone that is essentially an app launcher.

Next time, don't look like a dumb--- and try to troll.

Well you pretty much just did yourself by calling the iPhone an app launcher.

But it is. Camera sucks, GPS sucks, LOLitunes sucks, leaving you with-say it with me- an APP LAUNCHER.

iTunes sucks? Since when? Even a android user whose ever used it cant even say that? Youre probably one of those ignorant, annoying pieces of sh*t who complains about every product of Apples.

And you're probably one of those ignorant apple fanboys who think an over priced product is "classy".

"HTC rounds out the top 5 with 8% of the U.S.smartphone market." hopefully that will change with their new smartphone line-up.

HTC deserves a top spot. All Samsung and Apple do is fight over meaningless patents. HTC atleast gives amazing hardware.

Please give us a better graphic, it's very difficult to make out those numbers. This is crucial information and we must have it [please]. I can only make out that the manufacturer of my fabulous Galaxy Note II 4G LTE ☆ with Multi Windows is on top but, must see percentages and by how much they are 'WINNING!!'

I took my note 2 back yesterday, worst camera and mms features I've used on a high end smart phone. I hated having to select limit for mms when I launch the vid camera, and record those horribly grainy low res vids for them to be sendable. Horrible video editing too. The notes a great phone but far from fabulous. Pic folders r also stored on the phones internal storage so be careful with making hi res vids and creating a folder for them. Only 10.97 gig of the internal storage is user available.

Click on the image and it should pop up in a new window with a higher resolution.
I could view it clearly in my galaxy note 2 without any problem.

Samsung actually run giii and note 2 classes for free. Even offer light refreshments. You should sign one of those 3 hrs classes. I did and learned a lot.

I thought it was a great overall device, but the camera is my most needed app coupled with the ability to send anything I shoot. The iPhone auto compresses, and auto edits videos that r too large this applies to mms and email, and I love that feature, the note would just say cant attach file size too large, so the vid was just stuck in my device. Not saying the iPhone is better, cuz the notes a beast but the iPhone suits my needs more

Go ahead, have your iPhone, little good it will do you when you can't find an available wi-fi spot. I doubt you would need to "edit" your videos or "resize" your photos because, I doubt that you have anyone to send them to. Besides, if you were so concerned with image size, you'd "intelligently" change the resolution in the Camers Settings; something I know (cough, cough, iCough) you can do on your precious iPhone [for older folks]. With regard to your comment "only 10.97 gig of the internal storage is user available", that lets me know that you've never actually owned a Galaxy Note II; it's actually about 14GB+ and is in-line with a 16GB iPhone (except a 16GB maxes out there since there's no damn expandable memory on that dreaded device). Lastly, you clearly have no "super ego" but, that's common in people with a low IQ (or, in your case, low iQ) which can lead to a more prevalent ID (or, in your case, iD); very common psyche structure of people with low-to-no intelligence!! Don't worry, though, your kids might have higher IQ's; they will definitely have Android phones, though, and will be embarrassed to be seen with you and your iPhone in public.

Thanks, that helped!! I tried downloading the png but, it was still fuzzy. Now I see where Gen-Y is at 29% of iUselessness and Gen-X seems to be equally divided in terms of device preference. But, it's good to see where iPhone was clobbered with the remaining gen-groups; surprisingly, even the Golden Gen prefers Samsung/Android (we know Samsung is not making any Windows phones as of late and, therefore, must be Android), I would have thought that they would actually prefer something a lot simpler and elementary ('things that make you go hmnnnnn....')????

Go Sammy!!!

You can change where pics are saved. All of mine save to my 32GB SD card, so that is an easy fix. The MMS limit has nothing to do with Samsung and is based on the Carrier. You simply cannot send a 32mb HD video via MMS. Use drop box and just share it or email it instead, though I've seen similar limits on the size of attachments in gmail as well.

It's futile to try and explain that process to him; he won't be able to comprehend. Besides, his main issue is that the OS (he thinketh device) doesn't automatically resize his photos and videos to comply with size limitation set forth by his carrier so that he can send them via MMS to
his iMaginary friends ..... ssshhhhhh, don't tell him there
are Apps' in the Play Store that will do that for him. And, yes, Gmail does also impose a total size limit per email sent but, it's much higher than most (if not all) of the other FREE email providers.

Dude I'm not gonna even bother getting into a stupid flame war with u. I bought the note 2, I feel it's an awesome device but that the iPhone better suits my photography needs. As far as my IQ, your post shows your IQ level, and level of class I might add. I'm no fanboy...I'm a techie, and I love both platforms. I'm just more of an apple man...case closed, and have a nice day sir. And yes I'm also sithvenger

I know the pics r saved on the sd card, but pic folders go on the phones internal storage. Make a folder then take your sd card out and you'll see the the folder stays, cuz it's not on the sd card. Also papinyc cough cough icough I know how to go into the camera settings and change the resolution. That's what I like about iOS u don't have to change the res,or manually trim a video that's too long it's done automatically. That's y it's a great point shoot, and send camera... Cough cough Icough
