Samsung will be number 1 for a long time. Hopefully HTC will be in second place this year. Proud owner of note 2.

People are still buying low end smartphones on a regular basis. I'm a samsung guy, but i gotta say that if Apple enters the low end device market and opens up a more expansive product line up, Samsung and Apple would be a lot closer. We all understand why Apple is keeping it basic. Maybe we'll see something new; bigger screens, keyboards, less negative space. We sell more GS3s than iphone at all my our sprint locations, because, mainly, for the screen.

Apple has been selling $50 4's and $100 4S' for the past three years. Your argument makes no sense. Oh yea refurbished ones are even cheaper.

...and more expansive line up. Please read my whole post. I also talk about larger screens. Thanks for addressing the one concern but it doesn't make my post make "no sense". Please read each post.

Samsung is only 26 percent in the us, but its 100% in my house!! 2 gs3 and 2 gn2!! I think LG numbers will go up this year. Htc has no chance.
