I agree that numbers don't mean anything, but how would you know that Samsung's patents are not worthy? but Apple's patents are?
Company A has 100,000 patents, many of which are widely licensed (including those considered essential FRAND) and employed to promote / advance technology.
Company B has 1,000 patents, many of which are based on obvious design / prior art. The patents are mainly used to intimidate competitors and maintain its market dominance.
