Samsung is not good in business.
They got lucky. Flat out. They stumbled upon making GIAGANTIC screens and the market ate it up. There would always be a huge market for Android phones because of price. Samsung was just the lucky one. It will only go down hill from now on. Profits are down 25% and top end unit sales are down 35%. Soon they will need to cut marketing and that will lessen sales even more. The Chinese companies will destroy Samsung's mid-range phones and they will be forced to cut prices even more.
Can you say Nokia 2.0?
Disagree. From the litigation we know that Samsung recognized right away that copying was the only option. It wasn't dumb luck. They knew exactly what they were doing. And their math was correct. They made a lot more money copying than the rest of the competitors combined. How's that not good business? I'm no Samdung fan, but I recognize good business decisions when I see them.
