SAMSUNG has become what APPLE was. Rushing products to market. Is APPLE rushing anymore? No. Is SAMSUNG? Yes. Will APPLE win? Yes.

How exactly are they rushing stuff to market? The Galaxy S comes out once a year. The Galaxy Note co.es once a year. So what they make similar models in the family.

Did you see the numbers? Over 1B phones were shipped last year. 31 of them were solely from Samsung. APPLE only had 1/2 as many. Where are Samsung major sales? Outside the US while Apple solely depends on US because 2/3 of the planet can't afford an iPhone.

Where is this rushing? So some facts to back your claim. Oh and Apple doesn't rush products? Really? Hmmmm.they rushed the first iPhone to beat Google. You couldn't install apps, no copy/paste, the camera didn't record. Yet cheap flip phone had this feature. Apple rush and release the iPad 3 less than 6 months behind the 2. To compete with tablets that had high res screens. Then they rushed to drop a 7" tablet that they blasted for 3 years. Then they brush the iPhone 5c which has had dismal sales to a point that Apple cut product by 50% in 3 months after release.

You obviously have no idea what u are talking about. If Samsung wasn't selling phones they wouldn't be making them. Look at their marketshare. They are the to selling and making smartphone company on the planet. Even Nokia in their best days never sold 30th phones in a single year.

What what what? Where is the rushing?

Samsung Caused the Galaxy S4 to be Unpopular with Consumers by Removing the F.m radio Function,thats why people kept loyal to the S3 or Switched to a Smartphone with the F.M radio on it,they thought that people would not mind paying to use the radio an using up there data,Which was totally wrong,Hope we do get the F.M Radio back on the Galaxy S5

I saw on Pulse size will be 5.58 x 2.8 x .32 inches or basically a bit thinner Droid DNA. I love my Note 3 but I think all these specs and slightly smaller carrying might do it for me.

agree with you that a 1440p display is unnecessary at this point but With devices of this size it's difficult to tell the difference between 720p and 1080p. It would be great for all high end devices to simply adopt the 1080p standard from now on. However if a 1440p display on a phone would start encouraging manufacturers of TV and laptop displays to start making some much as I hate it.
