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.

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.


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!

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
