Not if I get there first! :P
As someone who uses a Note 3, I can tell you it's not the thickness of the phone that impacts one-handed usability. Its the width. If this phone had no bezels around the screen it would become much more usable. If it was half as thick, it would still be just as difficult to use with one hand. That's not to say it's impossible to use with one hand. I do it all the time. Two hands is definitely easier though.
The pixel density required to eliminate most people's ability to distinguish pixelation in any way whatsoever is about 600 PPI. Being able to distinguish a pixel from other pixels is not the limit of human visual acuity thanks to the fact that a brain sits behind our eyes. http://www.anandtech.com/show/7743/the-pixel-density-race-and-its-technical-merits
This is flat out wrong based on the numbers from this article itself. Even though only 20% of Android devices were high-end, that still is more than the entire number of iPhones Apple sold. Thus Android dominates the high-end market worldwide.
 I'm not aware of any cellular service provider that sends the name of callers not in your address book.  Caller ID on cell phones is limited to displaying the phone number.
 The problem is that most of these small companies who gain just enough success to be on the radar of large companies aren't owned by the founder.  They're usually owned by the investors who gave the founder money to get his dreams off the ground.  Investors only want to see a return on their investment, so they sell when the offer is good enough.
 I'm actually running version 5.0.84, but that's beside the point.  The point is that Google has averted most of the problem without a system update by updating its malware scanner in Google Play Services, which will roll out to the 99.3% of Android devices running on Gingerbread or later.  Of course your article wouldn't mention that because it doesn't have quite the same FUDdy ring to it. I should also say that patching the problem with a malware scanner update isn't as...
The saltiness of your tears will be delicious when Apple releases a phone with NFC.
 They release the financial statements for the current quarter on July 31.  Last quarter they squeaked by with a slightly higher profit than the same quarter last year. http://www.samsung.com/us/aboutsamsung/investor_relations/financial_information/downloads/2014/2014_con_quarter01_soi.pdf I would expect their profits to decline overall according to the guidance in the article you cited, but as I suggested, it's due largely to an increase in expenses.  Their operating...
I haven't looked at their income statement, but a really simple explanation is that their expenses increased more than their revenues did. Samsung may have brought in more revenues than ever, but if they spent even more on R&D or marketing, then their profits would still decline.
