yes u r right about build material but why samsung number one 1 ? because build is not everything my friend everyone wants performance material at second plan this is general opinion. samsung is not new nokia because samsung doesn't give so called 'smartphones' as nokia did once.

samsung will never be the new nokia... if samsung could actually make a phone that is very durable, then you can say that! beat 3310 first!!! and oh... even the glorious s3 was beaten by iPhone 5 durability on the drop test... who's lousy now? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6M5q5TRuAsY

agreed. My SGS1 vibrant is still running strong and nearly scratch free after over 2 years of abuse, dropping, running into things, ect. The SGS3 is one flake in an entire line up of very durable phones. The i5 is one durable phone in a line up of flakes.

I have no doubts buying a Lumia android phone if Nokia produces it and I'm sure countless of others do but Nokia NEVER listens to what ppl want :/ That will always be their downfall.

Aggresive pricing, amazing pr and marketing, flooding the market with devices, vast resources and most importantly, innovation. I can only see samsung going up from now on.

An Android powered Lumia 920 would make my mouth drool. Samsung has been king and will continue to!

I know the Android bots have taken over these comments but I'm sorry I wouldn't want Android on the Lumia line at all. Maybe they can a totally different design to satisfy ya'll but keep WP8 with the Lumias. The Design and the OS are a perfect combo. You'll see the Lumia 920 is going to own. Nokia will be ok.

As long as Nokia sticks with Windows L8, it will never be, what it's full potential can make of it. Put that camera on a Samsung, and its SoC, let Nokia design the body of the phone... Wham, Bam, thank you Maam; For that intensive orgasm, just nutted all over the though of it! Call it the illuminate 920, if you want.

do not cheer for any one company as that company cares nothing for you personally. Buy what you feel is the best for you, even if it is made by APPLE, Samsung, Nokia, etc. Companies get complacent (see APPLE) when they realize that they can sell something just because of the name, because of the brand.

Nokia will continue to destroy itself as long as it uses WP and Stephen Elop is CEO. Either way... Samsung all the way!
