Also, about that 4k video capacity in the new Note: WTF? How is that useful or reasonable? You'll generate gigantic files funneled through a shitty little phone camera lens.
Despite their recent market share success, Samsung may yet shoot themselves in the foot by succumbing to the same old goes to 11 syndrome that ultimately decimated the desktop industry.
The further away Samsung gets from Apple, (that is, the more convinced that they've left them behind and are free to forge their own path) the more likely they are to start piling on "features" that don't do the user any good. And eventually feature bloat starts affecting usability, stability, battery life, etc.
The one thing that no one seems able to copy from Apple is the discipline to say no, which Steve baked into their DNA. At the moment, because of the extremely rapid growth in the smart phone market, Samsung can post huge wins by selling more and cheaper devices. But at some point everyone who wants a smartphone has purchased one, and their next purchase is somewhat more considered. If you're coming from big ass phone larded with features which started getting funky after about a year you may be open to other approaches. OTOH, the data suggests that Apple users are pretty damn loyal, probably because the all over experience of ownership is pretty damn good-- not just "cool new big" at the point of sale.
