Besides actually manufacturing the absolute best smartphones, Samsung has one more thing going for it that helps the company remain the undisputed Android king. The Koreans sure know how to build up the hype surrounding new products, ensuring therefore that the interest of potential customers reaches unbelievable heights way before a device is seeing the light of day.
Case(s) in point the Galaxy S3, which has kept us on our toes for months before its official unveiling, and now the Galaxy Note 2. The second-generation “phablet” has been in the spotlight for a while already, but, even with leaks and rumors coming from right and left, there [...]
There has been much debate around exactly what improvements Samsung has brought to the table with the Galaxy S3 over the S2 and a big part of that discussion has concentrated on the two smartphones’ displays.
While many users have agreed that the S3’s screen is a natural evolution from the S2’s panel, there have been more than a fistful of critics disagreeing with that opinion, which has led to Samsung officials issuing statements defending the new display.
Naturally, that hasn’t completely calmed the criticism “storm”, but maybe DisplayMate’s most recent in-depth analysis will manage to do just that. According to what looks like a [...]
A JPMorgan analyst was quoted by French newspaper Les Echos saying that Samsung sold 6.5 million Galaxy S3 devices in Q2, which is mostly June and another two days of May, since the Galaxy S3 was launched on May 29.

Taiwanese display supplier AU Optronics is going to start offering some serious competition to the absolute leader in AMOLED displays, Samsung, which owes about 98% of the AMOLED market.
Having only one player with such a massive market share is not usually a good thing for the evolution of a product. Samsung’s utter dominance of the AMOLED market might explain why we didn’t see a Super AMOLED Plus display in the Galaxy S3. Moreover, some LCDs like LG’s AH-IPS and the HTC One X’s display (which seems to be AH-IPS but with some tweaks) are starting to pose serious threats to the supremacy of Samsung’s Super AMOLED.
However, HTC is [...]
