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 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.

Actually, I take back what I said since your post was trying to justify this:

quote:
It's dominating because you can do anything with it, from low end cheapo phone to the highest of high end with all bells and whistles, to tablets to smartwatches to (soon to be) SmartGlasses.


No, it is dominating because it is cheap.

That list of features is mostly irrelevant to the majority of Android users out there because about 90% of hardware running Android isn't even capable of doing most of those things.

That list of yours is relevant to a niche that has actually flattened out in growth relative to both the iPhone and the low end Android market (which has EXPLODED).

It is cool that you like the things on your list. However, that list is meaningless in this context given that nearly all Android devices sold either lack most of those features or aren't capable of them.

If you want to talk about why Android is on 80% of devices, start talking about the price and ubiquity of low-end hardware. Those high end features (even the ones that are meaningless because you are a technical ignoramus or you are padding for space) are relevant to a small segment of the market.
