I see "blind followers", LOADS of "blind followers" here...
Ppl saying that Samsung is best in phone materials and design are simply "blind followers".
OK, electronics-wise I also believe that Samsung is very hard to reach, but design-wise and material-wise?

And the sad thing is that, instead of "blind followers" followers disappearing from Apple's behalf, I see Samsung "blind followers" growing really fast.

I think regardless of the design and materials used, people would buy samsung because of its availability and features like removable battery and sd card expansion.

well now, i think you can call me a "blind follower" having owned a note 2 and im just lovin it.

Remember, owning a device does not automatically turn you into a blind follower.
Strongly supporting a brand no matter what makes you though.

I think it is the other way around. You are obviously a blind hater. Let's put it this way. Samsung has been manufacturing phones and products longer than we were born. They have made tanks for the military, aluminum laptops and tablets like the tab 7.7, and just about everything under the sun. I think they would know more about design and materials than a butt hurt HTC fan.

Case in point, all of the high end Samsung products have magnesium frames and the clearance they have between components are ridiculous. That is how they fit such large batteries into thin and light form factors.

Newsflash, electronics design and physical design go hand in hand. If you know one well, you have to at least know the fundamentals of the other or your product would suck and wouldn't be able to protect those internals that you are so good at.

You don't get it my friend.
It is not about Android here.
SamFans are happy with Samsung, and wish all other brands to drop de@d.
Take a look at all the other posts about new devices, and you'll get a good taste.
SamFans are even more dedicated blinds than Apple ones.

All my friends who have a Samsung device (most of them GS3) will buy GSIV regardless the specs.
This means blinded. And most of Samsung fans remind me those of the old iPhone fans, who were prepaying for a phone that they did not even know its looks.
Believe it or not, that is how it is, no matter how many SamFans thumb down.

Many choose samsung phones regardless of specs because of functionally....cool additional features in touchwiz is main selling point for samsung devices...

haha Sigh. You sound almost as clueless as HTC, Sony, and LG. People buy Samsung products because they are great products and a more trusted product. If HTC, Sony, LG, Apple actually make a better product, people will buy it.

It is as simple as that. It's not like those companies have zero sales. Plenty of non Samsung devices floating around. I am positive that some of those people have owned a Samsung product before but ended up buying an LG or something, myself included.

There goes your weak conviction. That is not how it is. haha

First of all, starting a sentence with "haha" means something like mental instability.
If you see ppl saying:
"I'll buy GSIV because it is SO KEWL! Its super! WoW"
now THATS zombification.
Again, I have to explain that not all Samsung fans are the same!!! GodD@mn, use your brains, I never said that 100% of them are zombies, but 80% surely is.
And regarding the "trusted" Samsung products, if you have any friend working in Samsung service, ask him how many hardware bugs were found in GS3... Let me give you a clue. Lots.

PhoneArena are biased towards Samsung and S3 hahahah
if Iphne 5 won this it would be a mess here all heading but since S3 took it they dont even mention it just the results is inside the strory. C'mon this site is mainly based on smartphones so this is just like the world cup to soccer how come you don't mention the winner??? YOU ARE BIASED and I prove this FIRST OF ALL THIS HAPPENED YESTERDAY AND THEY REPORT IT TODAY AS IF ITS NOT WORTH IT. Look at all other tech sites

That is so true. If the iPhone 5 won, Ray S or Nick T would make the headlines read: iPhone 5 wins the prestigious smartphone of the year awards from GSM! Shows that Apple is still on top.

The Nexus 7 was the best tablet for the price, but I do not believe it was the best tablet, I think the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity or the Galaxy Note 10.1 should have won
