  1. Seems like Samsung cares more to be worlds best this, worlds best that.
    Largest manufacturer of phones, largest display division, android smartphone leader (blegh) featuring the most nexus devices (blegh), the first with useless other features…….they should focus on being the BEST, not the biggest!

    1. Samsung has the best displays in the TV market. Mobile is a little shaky but their LCD tech is by far the best. Most companies buy their screens from Samsung and build around them. As for the rest of Samsung, yea they are lackluster.

      1. They make by far the best mobile displays as well. It’s just that they sell them to Apple instead of using them in their own phones. Hehe.

      2. You forgot this. As for the dram and flash memory, Samsung is the best out there.

  2. And I’m reading this looking at a Samsung display. Galaxy S3.
