I find that a bit subjective, particularly from owners of HTC and Nokia and Apple products who seem to think their phones are pretty much of the same, if not better quality. If you are referring to features, Samsung does seem to try to put the most into their flagship phones, often at the expense of something like screen technology choice, but that is mostly personal preference. Product differentiation is good. My big problem with Samsung phones is that anything other than their top-tier flagship phones are of low quality in terms of both build and optimization. They tend to be slow, unnecessarily handicapped, and a bit of a burden to use. Not everyone wants an unlocked $500+ phone, or a 2 year contract.Samsung makes the highest quality phones on the market today
It might. Android has proven to be the least memory efficient OS of the current big 3, and 4 gigs of RAM plus might be a good remedy to that. There are other advantages to 64bit addressing beyond just memory in terms of how virtual memory is handled and the apps might be coded. As the old saying goes: You will never need more than 640k of memory...Forget about the fact that this phone won't have 4 GB of memory, a phone multitasking enough to require over 4 GB of memory would drain its battery in minutes.
I don't disagree. This has been a huge disappointment for me ever since the 1st flash-based iPods came out. I was always waiting for that 128 gigger to replace my 40 gigger... Never really happened, and certainly not affordability. To say nothing of phones that have no SD expansion and have more than just music on it... Apps, photos, videos, etc... They need options with more memory, even if the price is insane...What I would like to see in the S5 is 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB storage options.
First off, 99% of statistics are made up on the spot...Maybe 1% of smart phone buyers would want such a feature and you want to make it mandatory?
How do you think binary compatible ??? You think you can run same code on completely different architectures simply cause it's both 64 bit and both are linux based? Did you forget one runs on ARM and second on x86...- Code portability. iOS 7 is binary compatible with OS X. App developers who have already spent years optimizing 64bit code for the Mac are now taking that same code and porting it directly over to iOS 7. No, they're not bringing over the entire application as it's not possible to run something like Photoshop on an iPhone. But they are taking features from the desktop and moving them to mobile.
