We've known for a while that Samsung is a huge company, and we've seen a few times that between it and Apple, those two companies cover the vast majority of smartphone revenue. But, now we're seeing what kind of growth Samsung has within the Android ecosystem itself, and it shows that as other manufacturers are flagging, Samsung now holds 46% market share of Android devices...

Actually I was thinking some time before the One series. For example the Evo 4G (1.3 gigs user available), what about the Sensation XL no SD card or the Thunderbolt 4G with 4 GB of internal storage and a 1400 MaH battery or the Inspire 4G the same 4 gigs and a disappointing 1230 MaH batt when the competition standard in 2011 was over 8 GB of storage and the battery over 1600 MaH.

Saw that commin'. Also come 2013 if the rumored octa core of the SGS4 is true then they could easily again dominate the market the entire 2013. That Octa core could very well be their biggest selling point against other manufacturers. . .

Well I actually think Samsung could have a situation with the S4.. their Exynos 5 quad is just not suitable for phones if made on anything above 22nm process.

Also, the Amoled screen has problems with calibration and they will really need to put an extra effort into the full hd version if they want to be up there with the next gen LCD

The reason why Samsung is doing so well is because of the quality of their phones and the support behind it. They have many kinds of phones and every single one you can count on for the support and updates. HTC is losing it because of failures like the Thunderbolt and even the DNA (which leaves much to be desired). Motorola has great phones out with really amazing battery life but with Google taking over they are in transition. The rest, Sony, ZTE, and a host of others, they just do not have enough prescence and again support.

Indeed that's Samsung's strong point. As for SONY they have a good software support for an 18 month span, but if you scrutinize it carefully you'll realize that its just B.S. .
