 Well, I don't follow these things, but that appears to be the case :      
 @Frood :  No, the vast majority of that verdict was for three copied designs ($399M) and the trademarked look ($382M) -- ie, copying the iPhone.  The pinch-to-zoom has been invalidated by USPTO -- Apple appealed last year, but the USPTO upheld their previous decision and declared it invalid.  
 @formosa : Sure, but all of Samsung's infringing devices have been discontinued long ago or are no longer for sales in the US.   As for your "cupholder" comment, Apple used the same legal argument against Samsung in the 2012 ITC case -- Apple argued that Samsung's patent royalty rate should be based on the cost of infringing component (ie, cupholder), not end-user device (ie, car) and that Samsung was entitled to 0.000000000..x% per device royalty rate. Not...
 Well, if you are referring to Samsung's US attack ads, they should probably continue with that ad campaign.  According to the same WJS article, Samsung's S5 sales in the US market is actually up!  There is zero evidence that they are being squeezed by Apple though.
another unsubstantiated creative writing from DED.
 That must be why DED writes about Samsung and Samsung phones obsessively. LOL
 @sog35 : Sure, unlike you, I'm not a psychic.  I draw conclusions only based on what is announced, surveyed or reported, plus my decades of technical training and industry experience -- which includes two tech start-ups by former Apple employees.  Sure, Apple and Samsung are competitors in the premium market segment, but, again, Dilger and you failed to produce any evidence that Apple is indeed squeezing Samsung's high-end business.
 1) Sure, and you still don't have any data to back up your nonsensical batsh*t claims. 2) Any survey, research data -- and it includes IDC stats you cited as your primary source earlier, quite hypocritically -- by analysts are far superior to whatever you and Dilger frequently pull out of your asses.   3) not quite sure what you are trying to prove with the Jan 2013 Samsung announcement.  Samsung announced that they sold more than 100 M units sales between June, 2010 and...
 1) Sure, Samsung makes ads/commercials in all markets, including China.  Samsung spends well over $10B in marketing and ads.  Samsung didn't have to bash lesser competitors, just in the same way Apple attacked MS (eg, "Get a Mac" campaign), but not Moto. 2) Go read Samsung's annual statement from 2013 where they clearly warned about growing threats from the Chinese competitors and declining sales. They never made such warning about Apple. 3) No disputing that Xiaomi is a...
 1) Sure, you have no data to back up your claim.  You have absolute no data that show Samsung's premium unit sales and, further your stat is completely wrong.  According to Morgan Stanley Research, Samsung sold about 130M Galaxy Premium models in 2013.  Localytics likewise reported that slightly less than half of Samsung's smartphones are their marquee Galaxy S models, excluding the Note lines (early 2014).  2) Let's borrow your SIMPLETON fanboi logic from the second...
