An infograph from CompareMyMobile shows the impact that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is having in the recycled handset market. Requests for valuations on older Samsung models has risen 129% since the unveiling of the newer flagship device. This is usually how Apple products respond to a new iPhone model, confirming that Samsung has reached "iPhone" status with its Galaxy S line.

On April 24th, Samsung related trades made up 17.2% of the market. Meanwhile, Apple's share of the trade in market has declined from 50% to 44% over the last 50 days.

The chart showing prices for the older phones in the Samsung Galaxy S line are declining as more phones get pushed onto the market to help defray the cost of the new Samsung Galaxy S4. The Samsung Galaxy S has recently dropped 10% to less than $75. The Samsung Galaxy S II has dropped 23% to around $100, while the Samsung Galaxy S III has dropped 19%. The two phablets have also dropped in price with the Samsung GALAXY Note declining 7% and the Samsung GALAXY Note II declining 3% in value.

This is not Facebook or message bro, so texting shortcuts is unnecessary, try texting normal correct spelling, it is easy for everyone to understand! I know in Phillippines everyone does that, but now you're on a US-worldwide website, not a Phillippines webstite bro!
