Announcement comes from companies CEO JK Shin

Samsung launched its Galaxy S4 smartphone back in April and the device has proven to be incredibly popular. It took the smartphone about two months to sell 20 million units and four months after launch to hit 30 million units. As the phone has aged and competition increased, it's sales pace has declined.

The Galaxy S4 sold only about 5 million units in August. However, Samsung CEO JK Shin recently stated that over 40 million Galaxy S4 smartphones have been sold globally since the device launched. Considering the phone is been around for about six months, this is an impressive feat for Samsung.

Samsung Galaxy S IV

Samsung has continued to roll out some interesting new products following the launch of the Galaxy S4. Most recently, Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch. The Galaxy Note 3 has impressed both reviewers and customers; however, the Galaxy Gear smartwatch has proven to be rather unloved in many reviews.

Jump Desktop on the iPad. I have Pocketcloud too, Jump is better.

I use Prompt for SSH.

You didn't answer any of my statements on games, I reckon its because the Android ports actually don't exist.

Say it: "Games don't matter". I know you want to. :)

Ummm, ya I wish we had that....https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com....

I repeat, you're familiarity with your platform and you're unfamiliarity with the other shows its face again... Totally clueless. And games? Same thing, you are clueless. You spend so much time with your head buried in IOS you have no idea what is going on outside that world. It works for you, great, noone is expecting you to change but REALLY, stop making idiotic comments about the other side, you just look uninformed as you did here again tonight. Your arguments are years old and invalid.

That is what you come back with? Completely lame dude. The point is not that Android has the app that you thought it didn't have, the point is that you have no idea what you're talking about with the Android app situation. As I have told you a dozen times, your arguments are a year to 2 years old and don't hold water today.

You use iOS and have been on it for a long time. You are very familiar with its app world, but you don't know anything about what's going on Android. Your comments show it. Like I said above there's no reason for you to change what you use and what works well for you but stop making stupid uneducated and ignorant comments about something you have no idea about. It just makes you look rediculous.

And your ridiculous list of games? There are darn near a million apps and games on both sides. There are thousands and thousands of apps that are available on each but not the other... Congratulations for finding a few. Oh my god you're just reaching anymore to try and save face. Too bad you put your foot in your mouth and lost it so to speak. it's good to see proof though, the argument was getting old and now we know where you're coming from.

You're not the only one who can make silly lists. Here's what I do know:

Blizzard: Not releasing Hearthstone for Android
2K Games: Not releasing games like XCom Enemy Unknown for Android
Epic: Not porting Infinity Blade series to Android
iD: Still no ports for Android
EA: Most of their games don't have Android ports
Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition: Been "TBA" to Android for a year when it was "coming soon". Can be bought for iOS, Windows, and OS X.
Playdek: The best maker of board and card game ports for mobile devices: http://www.playdekgames.com/game_catalog.php

Android users clamor for ports from Playdek, none of which are anywhere to be seen after all these years. One of the top threads in the r/digitaltabletop subreddit is "what games do you want to see on Android?", something that only exists because of the lack of them.

This is like arguing with a Linux user over the difference in game libraries between it and Windows. Sure there are games, you'll have Angry Birds and such, but a lot of the high quality stuff just isn't there.

I'm not being malicious when I say this, I truly mean it when I say that I'm surprised that more AAA games are still iOS exclusive.

The port of this finally did come out though!
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com....

It is one of my favorite games from the last two years. Played the hell out of it on PC and the iOS port is even better. If it works on your Android device you should check it out, its awesome.

Oh WTH, the last link from the Play store can't be copied and work properly.

Search for "Frozen Synapse", that game is amazing
