Samsung Galaxy S IV expected to rule the Android market in 2013, but competitors will put up a good fight
There are just a few days left until one of the biggest events in the mobile industry this year - the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S IV. As you can imagine, we're also pretty excited here and are impatiently discussing whatever GS IV-related stuff we can think of. Last week we decided to see what you guys think about the future of the Galaxy S IV - is it going to be bright and joyful or is it going to mark a decline under the pressure of its competitors who seem to be that much more prepared this year.

So, which option do you think got most of the votes? Of course, most of you, or 50.76% (2265 votes) to be exact, have expressed their certainty in the Galaxy S IV's success. Obviously, most of you are convinced that this year, just like the last two or three years, the GS IV will be the undisputed king of the Android phone market. However, the much stronger competition from the camps of the other smartphone manufacturers like HTC and Sony seems to be reflected in the large vote count (40.21% or 1794 votes) for the option that says "Not sure. Some of the other players have very competitive smartphones this time around." This comes to show that users are acknowledging the wonderful handsets that Samsung's competition has come up with.

The number of people who don't believe that Samsung will make a splash this year is negligibly small (only 4.71%), while those of you who tend to daydream about the 90s are even fewer (4.33%).

Well, guys, the 90s sure ain't coming back, but at least we have the Galaxy S IV launch to look forward to!

Can't help but laugh at this expected competitors putting up a fight stuff. Sounds pretty comical truly get serious Samsung sold 213 million smartphones in 2012 at 40% plus market share with the closest competitor Hauwei at 6% market share. In 2013 Samsung will sell 250 million smartphones with the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 who?? WILL truly challenge that......NOBODY.............

If you think i am posting an wack statement, let don’t compare with Nokia, HTC, Moto, Sony, M$hit, iRotten n R.I.P, let take Scroogle Nexus, compare to it Samsung products totally out sale them, because there is nothing special about it compare to sammy, it show how a failure Scroogle is as a father of the Android..... And if my statement is wack, there won’t be so much people agree my statement.

No intention to feel Sammy fanboy with this, but Apple, Nokia, HTC and LG are all companies which fell due to the rise of Samsung as a mobile leader.

Do you understand the word complacency?? Yes, that's right...
Samsung might rule right now, but it won't be for long.

Okay, and that's Samsung's fault? Though I do like LG and Nokia, Samsung deserves to be where they are now.

Opposite, Samsung rose as a leader due to the failures of Nokia and Apple along with the obsession that's android and providing some pretty decent hardware. You see during the S/S2 days, ss rose due to providing something that was the apple experience at a cheaper price than what apple offered.

First, I love every smartphone manufacturers and yes, I'm using a Sony Xperia smartphone so that's why I'm using "xperia" as a part of my username.

And Second, have you read the No.2 comment from supersammyfans? My comment (No.31) is a response to supersammyfans because he/she is being an "overly" Samsung fanboy, that's why I'm commenting like that.

PS: I'm not a fanboy of anyone.
Have a good day sir.

Sincerely,
xperiaDROID

For me I think Samsung Galaxy SIV and Sony Xperia Z will be a clear winner of 2013.

Just wait and see till samsung reveal SIV this week.

Sadly, with Samsung's unrivaled advertisement smarts, all competitors will be left in the dust, remember, it's not what your phone offers, but it's how you market your product....the 2012 Olympics was a living testament to that, heck even my 8 year old sister wanted an S3 so badly. We will see plenty of Z10's and Xperia Z's collecting dusts once the S4 hit the stores

It does help that the is good, but I wish HTC, LG, Sony would do more to sell their product.

Well, HTC and Sony could release their flagship phones on more carriers in the U.S. HTC One and the Sony Z not available on VZW cuts out 26% of U.S. cellphone subscribers from the get-go. Sammy sure won't make that dumbass mistake. They will probably make their 100 m global sales goal for the GS IV.

don't underestimate the power of fanatism on the Sony side. I heard they making good numbers an some European countries. It might not be good as Samsung s4 sales, but is going to be enough to survive and possible to strive as ones they were before.

"remember, it's not what your phone offers, but it's how you market your product"

So by your logic, the phone as be as s**t as s**t but if they market it well, you'll buy it? Ahh, the sound of a brainwashed/dead minded cunt who buys everything that's new and better than other people's phone to feel better about yourself

The humanity...
