Samsung you are making me "Lmfao" with plastic materials. Please this is a joke.

Come back with a S4 made with all:

Ceramic like Rado watches
Sapphire thats used in Rolex, Breitling and Nokia 8 series
Dragontrail SonyZ
Titanium Vertu phones
StainlessSteel 18-8 like Global kitchen knifes

Please this is Aristocrats and prestige society, not working class

"...now I do what they desire..."

I get what he means, but he could have phrased it in a way that didn't make him sound brainwashed...

LOL! When you have a great product, you don't have to force it on anyone. Sammy, come talk to me when you don't have to give away your device to get someone to use it.

"Sammy, come talk to me when you don't have to give away your device to get someone to use it."

Can you name a company that has more smartphone or cell phone users in the world than Samsung? Since they are #1 in the world, that's a lot of people who have Samsungs "forced" on them. And since the article clearly says that a person tried it out for a month and then chose it over his old device, isn't that the complete opposite of it being forced on someone?

I like the strategy, I'm sure Sony can earn funds to do this similar service for the rich and affluent.
