If some company does build bad quality it shamesung, those are those product wuith many problems what i have experience.

Bad build quality, bad screen mis color reproduction you can namend, it is frustrated that Shamesung paid many reviewers to support their dirty trick.

I can rarely find their devices in Canada but I do find nearly all of Samsung's. Sony rarely reduces prices (they're too expensive) and their smartphones have terrible reliability! So many complaints..

The marketing strategy for Sony is really bad. They rarely reduce prices while competing with the current market trend. Their tablets are hard to find nor it is reasonable. Where is xperia z tablet compact anyways??. They should have good devices in mid range section with competitive pricing. With 8gb internal memory Sony cannot gain much profit. Rethink Sony, you have everything to throw at... Come up with a dust and waterproof midrange phone with decent specs and price and I am sure you will gain some profit.

Yep. Meaningless updates every few months, mostly changing model numbers and a few irrelevant specs only serves to aggravate current customers, eats into good support and costs much more than its worth.

Now if only Samsung stops spewing the same ugly phones with slight modifications, so we can stop getting flooded on GSMArena.

As it stated they don't care about market share, it shows they really are focusing on the products and customer instead of only focusing on net profits. Kudos

They invested in camera technology, it is paying them now. They got rid of display divisions, it bit them in their back.
