I still prefer Nexus devices, but it is really impressive what Samsung has done with their software. There is no doubt that Samsung does a ton of coding on Android. After all, TouchWhiz has split screen multitasking, but Android doesn't. So to say Samsung is just making hardware is simply wrong.

I got my first android tab 2.2 years ago. At that time there were many launchers you could download. These were mostly from small time devs.
I will agree Sammy has gone (to them) great lengths doing their own launcher, it is basically a launcher.
If I ran the company (good for them I don't lol) I would put the resources to do my own software.
The time and effort that google has put into software I would guess is at least 200 times more than smsung has.

IMHO, spec alone will not guarantee a great mobile experience. After my bb 9810, I switched to SG3 which I found too sluggish for my use even though it has tons of apps. Sold my SG3 and bought an iPhone5. Just hate the browser sensitivity, can't scrolll to my taste.

Yes getting the ecosystem going is the daunting task. What us oldtimers remember is Samsung has never been known for software. I have worked for 4 different large "foreign" companies and software is always the weak point.
It is getting better but there is still a large difference.

So? A fast processor and 13 MP doesn't fix the fact that Android is a BUGGY piece of sh*t OS! It's like having a beautiful Porsche with ventilated four-wheel disc brakes, electronic traction control, Porsche Stability Management system and a 50 HP engine from a lawnmower....I mean, who cares about the other stuff when the ENGINE SUCKS?

Big deal it has better specs than the Z10 a lot of phones out now do as well. In the end it's the same OS if people want android they will stick with android for people that want change there is blackberry. Right now bb is trying to solidify a 3rd place spot. Samsung is not there competition right now. Give it time, there is always going to be something new and better coming out.

never liked samsungs hardware. The S3 feels awkward in your hand. Im shur this will feel even worse. Im curious on the nexus 5 later this year. If they abandon the low price approach and go all out with specs, keep it on the practical size. Ill be seriously contemplating useing one.

Jelly bean compared to bb10 is ****! I wasn't a fan of it. And if the galaxy s line is 5" WTF?!? Is the note gonna be?!? Sounds pretty hard core to me. And stupid specs like that would be needed for android in its current stage. Qnx can run as fast with what it currently has.

The way I see it, if this "Huge" phones didn't sell well, Samsung wouldn't be making them. Besides, Samsung also makes smaller phones for people who want them. But, it's interesting that the Samsung Note 2 and Galaxy S3 have both sold better than most people were expecting. People who said, "No one wants a phone that big. That's Ridiculous". Say what you want about Android, but I LOVE that you have a big variety of phones to choose from. They almost have everyone covered. Also love being able to use different OS's simply by swapping my simcard.
Also, WHY do people still go to BGR when they knowingly admit that they think/know the site is full of lies and false information? There are many other more credible tech sites out there.
