Samsung S3 is a major success

When it comes to the most popular Android smartphones on the market, Samsung traditionally has held that honor. Samsung has announced that it has sold more than 20 million Galaxy S III smartphones in the device's first 100 days of availability. 
The S3 launched at the end of May and according to Samsung the device has sold at rate of about 200,000 units per day. The S3 reached the 20 million sold mark about three times faster than its predecessor the S2, and about six times faster than the original Galaxy S. Samsung offered details breaking down the 20 million number by country.
According to the manufacturer 6 million of the sales came in Europe, 4.5 million units were sold in Asia, 4 million units were sold in North America, and 2.5 million were sold in Korea. While sales of the S3 reached the 20 million mark quicker than the two previous S devices, the S3 still has a way to go to match raw sales numbers for its predecessors.
So far, the S2 has sold 28 million units, and the original S has sold 24 million units as of this June.
A Samsung spokesperson said, "Galaxy S III is for non-technical people to evolve and in smart phones the global smartphone market. [Samsung] is making a few changes to the [smartphone] and will try our best to provide a special experience for consumers to differentiate continuous innovation through the creation of products in the future."

It's a pretty simple answer. They identify with an object. The higher the amount of identification the more "emotional" people become towards critisism of their "loved" product. The object becomes replacement for self-worth and in the end of their own ego. It's pretty sad to see people fight about which one is better and to see that the firms aren't caring one bit about this single user. I have seen this in times of Commodore/Atari, Nintendo/Sega, Sony/MS, MS/Apple and so on and so forth. People should ask themselves why they want to defend a product in the first place. Life is wonderful so who cares about a product.

Humans love to divide themselves into groups and then fight eachother. Even when the differences are tiny, and not limited to computers either, look at: Ford vs Chevrolet, American cars vs imports, Catholics vs Protestants, Shiites vs Sunnis, Jews vs Muslims, bloods vs crips.

The people on both sides of all of those conflicts really have more in common with eachother than they do differences.

And if you're thinking "but that's just a fictional story!"

Most of the air of superiority of one group or the other emerges from the simply act of classification, not due to any actual superiority.
