My iPhone 5 screen may be small, but it's waaaaaay better than pentile of any size. The only Samsung I'd even consider would be the Note 2.

Apple is doing that by either screwing you, the consumer, or some poor assembly line worker in China.

Apple is notoriously known for applying excessive amounts of thermal paste on components within the system, which contribute to overheating problems and diminishing battery life. In addition, I cant think of any benefits to an aluminum unibody structure other than aesthetics, aluminum is a very, very weak metal. Now compare this with my Thinkpad, the case is made of carbon fiber, the hard drive is enclosed in a roll cage, its got a leak-proof keyboard, software on the laptop can determine if the laptop is falling and turn off the hard drives to minimize damage.. etc. I can not count how many times I have dropped my Thinkpad and it was in perfect working condition afterwards. Last but not least, my battery still gets me 5-6 hours whereas many of my friends who bought Macbooks at the same time as I bought my Thinkpad or after (~2 years) are experiencing heating and battery issues (ie the battery can't last for longer than 30-60 minutes). Sure, the Thinkpad might not be aesthetically pleasing to some, but you must acknowledge that you are sacrificing build quality for aesthetics when you buy an MBP.
I don't consider having too much thermal paste "poor build quality". When I talk about build quality I think of the chassis and display and how well they are put together. No creaks, cracking, flexing, chipping, all buttons and ports work well, etc.

The heat comes from having a thin laptop with powerful hardware. The MacBook Pro is no exception to that, though there are some which do manage heat a bit better.

As for the iMac, well, a custom built computer will trounce those things any time for a considerably smaller price with a presumably better build quality (I guess it depends on the competence of the guy putting it together though!).
So? It still has great build quality. And I don't see why a self built system would have better build quality than an iMac.

They aren't doing either. They make a lot of profit because they only make one new smartphone per year.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Congratulations to Samsung. ^_^

Honestly, no need to bash competition, it's just that Samsung has great quality, and that speaks for itself here.

Unless I've misread, saying "Galaxy sales crush Apple" seems like poor wording on the part of this article, unless they're using "Galaxy" as a general term for any and all Samsung smartphones, which is still misleading.

These users who buy cheaper phones like this have no choice in iOS vs Android or a choice in an Apple phone.
As Steelborn said, other companies are losing market share to Samsung, not Apple. Compare Samsung phones with similarly priced LG, Sony, HTC phones and Samsung come out on top every time.

Okay people like you honestly just annoy me. Did you even read the title or article before you come in here and post pointless things just to make your self seem smart? Considering that your comparing old galaxy to new ones, in that regard of $99, then i can do the same for the iPhone 3, which you can get for around 110$ here PAYG. So...yeah..your argument is absolutely pointless.

I bet Apple is not very happy that Samsung is doing very well.
