Do you actually believe that? What do you think you achieve by writing such nonsense? Is this your attempt at comedy?

Over 19 millions in its first three months of sales for the S8 is quite an achievement for samsung. Only 32 millions for iphone 7 is pretty disappointing, even though it's only 6 months old at the start of the quarter.
