HOW exactly, is a messenger app worth BILLIONS??   This is getting a little ridiculous, and for some reason fills me with a sense of foreboding. Something just isn't right about trends like this. 
I still have mine. Runs iOS 7 great and everything I throw at it runs beautifully.    It was and still is a great device. 
  Well done.    ;) 
  Credit where it's due. This is APPLE. They seem to (consistently) understand design.  My level-headed admonishment vs. all the "Apple should do X or their mobile strategy will collapse" posts in this thread. Choose the one that consistently makes the most sense from *both* a market share perspective *and* a profit perspective. Note that the current Apple designed phones (such bezels!) sold to the tune of 51 million in the quarter just passed, which is a new record for...
I'm pretty sure that if Apple has plans to do a larger iPhone, they'll know exactly how to do it.
I do agree, his reasons do sound a little off. However, not everyone's reasons are going to sound rational to others. Some folks aren't about money, or they actually fear having it.

 Alright, I hadn't considered this. Mea culpa. This makes more sense.  So am I correct in assuming that this explains Samsung's order? Is there a relationship between the two?
Is this a cultural thing?   Is this how South Koreans conduct themselves?   I know that it *seems* like the ebb and and flow of cutthroat competition, but stuff like this doesn't make Samsung look good - obviously. Do they not realize this??   Hope someone can answer.
