5 times huh? Sammy are quite generous & kind hearted company that allow you to do so. Friend of mine had a problem once with new Xperia device and have to wait at least 2 weeks to get the new unit.

Mine was Note 3 and had drop many times it's still working through...

For all those Sony, HTC and LG supporters, they can now end their "Samsung is dying while _______ is going to take over!"

Clearly that isn't happening anytime soon.

With Samsung's amazing marketing team and their commitment to software updates they have recently been showing. I don't see Samsung slowly down at all, if anything they are just going to keep going up from here.

Still this doesn't explain the number of phones sold, yet they managed to put percentages on those sales, does anyone feel weird about this

Yeah it is weird but it has a higher percentage of sales compared to the iPhone 5 so the total sales shouldn't be a problem for them at the moment.

The phone is that good.

The ppl. have spoken: the majority wants good grip, dust, water, and damage resistance over shiny slippery metal, look how many HTCs were sold since they changed to glued damage prone aluminum (actually less), and there is no correlation between iPhone sales and choice of material, Apple consistently manages market share irregardless of materials.

There is simply not a real-world argument or market evidence that ppl. NEED a shiny limiting metal body, our keyboards, mice, car radios, laptops and TVs are just fine in their light poly-carbonate coating, it is simply more practical.

Amen to that. It's high time the tech sites (looking at you, PA) stop this "premium because it's aluminum" nonsense. Premium = great engineering and designs, not what material is used.

THANK YOU. I am so sick of seeing the meaningless word "premium" everywhere I look. What do people think that means exactly? Because they're wrong.
Premium is purely how well built and engineered something is. In my opinion the iPhone 5c feels more premium with it's rounded study design, versus the iPhone 5s with its bend prone, sharp design.
This aluminum bandwagon thing is bs.

I'm with you on that. I think the 5c feels amazing in hand. The 5s feels fine, but just not as good.
