I am not surprised, I've had old Samsung flips, an HTC Touch Diamond, a Nexus One (HTC) and I am currently on a Nexus S (Samsung).

Guess what model always failed? Guess what model always worked?

HTC Diamond RMA twice in two year and was working so well I could compare it to a concrete block trying to swim. Nexus One RMA twice also and on third time they gave me the choice between an HTC Panache and the Nexus S. Since then, no problems, ICS runs fine.

To the victor go the spoil they say!

Good they deserve it, they'll score with the galaxy S3 when it releases next month or so also.

Yeah, I was surprised at the news commentary that their numbers were much higher than apple's, although I suppose when you take all devices into account rather than just looking at smart phones it only makes sense. How many samsung pay-go market phones are out there, and/or older flip phones?

I've been buying Samsung products ever since my father worked for a small Samsung shop and have never had anything fail on me.
