When they talk about Samsung profits being down, they're talking about Samsung's mobile division which is the company's most profitable division. Of course it doesn't bode well for the company as a whole if your most profitable business unit is bleeding.Your assertion that they wouldn't continue with the same line of advertising if it didn't work is clearly incorrect. Samsung's sales and profits are falling, so the ads aren't working, and Samsung is carrying on. The...

Have to say that I'm not sure hijacking charity like this is in the best possible taste, but if Samsung raises awareness then that is a positive thing. The ad was faked? No real surprise there. Will Apple respond? No, there's no need. Samsung is desperate.

It'll make it easier for them to get started, yes. After that, it's down to perseverance, like everything else.

That's the point: Apple's careful blending of technology creates a more compelling phone experience that does not seem to suffer from having a 'tiny' screen, while the current analyst meme is that massive screens trump everything. And yet, both Apple and Samsung's figures seem to indicate this is not the case, and never has been.I think a more important part of this experience is size, which is why I've also been very skeptical about the 5.5 inch phone.I also wonder if...
