  But that has nothing to do with Samsung's manufacturing capacity. Samsung buys Qualcomm's snapdragon SoC's for US LTE only.  Most of Samsung devices use Samsung's own Exynos SoC's.  And let's not forget, Qualcomm contracted Samsung to produce the S4 when TSMC couldn't keep up with Qualcomm's demand. Samsung is now also producing the S4 SoCs.  
  ROLF?  Of course, Samsung customized and produced their hummingbird SoC (aka, A4) for Apple used in earlier iDevices, while Apple twiddled their thumbs.  Furthermore, Samsung was already growing by leaps and bounds without Apple - in fact, by 2010, Samsung was almost twice as big as Sony (or most of its Japanese competitor) all without Apple's so-called generous patronage. In fact, Sony was Samsung's customer #1. Apple was in the top 10 for the most of the past decade. 
    or (I couldn't help it   ).  
  Ok, Intrinsity was Samsung's business partner when they developed Hummingbird SoC.  Apple bought Intrinsity afterward (in 2010) and likewise it's silly to claim that "Apple" is responsible for Samsung's success - only in Apple fanbois wet dream.   As for TSMC's next gen process, "Nvidia deeply unhappy with TSMC, claims 20nm essentially worthless"   http://www.extremetech.com/computing/123529-nvidia-deeply-unhappy-with-tsmc-claims-22nm-essentially-worthless
  Samsung's Austin complex employs about two thousands highly-skilled tech workers (vs the vast majority of Apple's US employees who work at retail stores making pittance in wages).
  Nope, that's a Apple fanboy lie / propaganda.  Apple doesn't license its so-called core UX patents.  Apple's offer to Samsung in 2010 largely consisted of generic mobile OS / utility patents had nothing whatsoever to do with the recent lawsuits. 
    Nope, partly..   Samsung also manufactures Qualcomm's snapdragons.    http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/07/04/qualcomm.partners.with.rival.samsung.on.s4.processor/   goes on to show that TSMC probably doesn't have the kind of capacity or quality to meet Apple's demand. And Samsung's own Exynos now supports LTE:   http://rootzwiki.com/news/_/articles/announcements/samsung-galaxy-note-2-marries-quad-core-exynos-to-lte-in-the-us-all-major-carriers-by-november-r1132
  Furthermore, most US carriers offer higher subsidies for Apple iPhones ($450+) vs. Android (Galaxy S3 - $320) or even Windows (Lumia - $300) - or typically less than $350.
  eh?  The Galaxy S3 Mini is listed for £298.80 in the UK.  You do realize that £350 is roughly equal to $600 USD - the US price of the GS3 without contract?
