The Word ‘Focus’ is absent from Samsung’s lexicon
Samsung Android Screen Sizes:

That is a ridiculous line-up. Too much choice makes for a crappier shopping experience for consumers. Just ask PC makers like Dell and HP.
Google knew what it was doing when it made and marketed Android as an “open” system. It surely anticipated forks by handset makers as a manageable risk as long as Google kept advancing the system. But I wonder if it expected something like Facebook Home: an inside-out heist, made by a company after the same exact user data and advertisers Google is after.
Maybe I’m missing the point, but Facebook Home just seems like a layer between you and the stuff you want to do on your phone……although that’s what Facebook wants, I’m not so sure that’s what customers want.
This is the best take i’ve read on the ‘Facebook Home’ so far. I think it is a genius move on Facebook’s part to pull off such a thing on rival’s “OPEN” platform. It is just too early to call this a success or a failure. I’m just happy to see the dilution of Google’s vision of Android. Andy Rubin’s ouster from the Android team is now starting to make a bit more sense.
A phone using Google AND Facebook technology? A privacy dream come true!

So far, Apple has not opened any of its iconic company-owned stores in India. While the government has allowed single-brand companies like Apple to operate fully-owned stores, it has made it compulsory for such firms to source 30% of the goods they sell here from local vendors. Currently, the US company does not manufacture any of its products in India and the 30% sourcing clause could, therefore, deter it from opening self-owned stores.
Okay, so now we have LG, Samsung and Google that are making a watch to compete with a product that Apple is supposedly going to make.
The phone wars, the platform wars, should be left to people who work for Apple and Samsung and Google and Microsoft and Nokia and BlackBerry. Do you work for Apple? Do you work for Samsung? No? Then shut up.
Nobody cares what kind of smartphone you believe in. It’s not a religion. It’s not your local sports team even. Stop being a soldier. You are not a soldier. You are just wrong. Shut up.
