Samsung's flagship phone is king of the Android market

Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (KSC:005930) continues on its tear in the smartphone industry.  Nearly as profitable as arch-rival Apple, Inc. (AAPL) [1][2], Samsung is on pace to sell 390 million smartphones this year, an incredible number.

Early sales numbers from the Galaxy S IV are looking healthy.  Despite criticism over its plastic-body, strong marketing appears to have come through for Samsung.  The company's co-CEO JK Shin announced to The Korea Times that the handset will hit the 10 million unit sales mark next week, a mere four weeks after its global launch.

By contrast, Samsung's last-generation flagship phone, the Galaxy S IIItook seven weeks to hit that mark.

The Samsung handset had a rather bizarre unveil:


... but appears to be keeping pace sales-wise.  It should get another little boost on June 26, when an unlocked version comes to Google Inc.'s (GOOG) Play store, priced at $649 USD.

It has nothing to do with CPU power. It's just too much crap in memory to run efficiently given the speed and amount of memory . You could (in theory) have an 80 core I7 CPU in it and it would be the same.

Based on what? The memory is nowhere near full capacity. It's CPU usage that causes the lag.
