I guess, they're practically broke.

the Android competition is coming from all corners:

- very cheap chines phones
- attractive mid-range phones from LG and Sony
- strong design and standout features on the high end with the HTC1x(design+build+speakers) and XperiaZ(design+build+waterproo f+first to the market)

This proves that no one company is intouchable.

that is what happens when you become an arrogant greedy bastard and stop caring about customers.

In2iti0n2145d ago

It seems that all companies come to that stage eventually. Microsoft, Apple, now Samsung...

I really don't see the big whoop with the S4 or any of the galaxy phones. What I really don't like is the build quality of them. Compared to my Sony Xperia Z it feels like a childs toy when holding it. Sure it has the best specs compared to any other phone but it feels so cheap.

Agreed. The Xperia Z and the HTC One X are much better quality-wise than the S4.
