Apple Apple's Phil Shiller has been trash-talking Android in the press these past few days - just as Samsung is about to launch its Galaxy S4. "Public, preemptive slamming of a competitor is far outside Apple's PR wheelhouse; it's a dramatic shift for a company used to making news rather than reacting to it. But why is it happening?" The Verge hits the nail on the head: "Cupertino's behavior this week is yet another symptom of Samsung's stratospheric rise in the smartphone market globally, a rise that challenges Apple and has outright stifled Android competitors like HTC and Sony."

Eh, its a great phone as in, the specs are better than any else around, yes. But its also not a great phone because its significantly better than what's out there. Plus the touchwiz is as strong as ever.

Right now there is no question in my mind what I would do If my SIII died, I'd get a Nexus 4.

I think its about time that the other android manufactures dropped the pretense of adding crappy skins on android and started competing against Samsung with Raw android. They'd still be differentiated from Google Nexus by their hardware. Is it too much to ask each party in play to just do the part they do best? Google do software. Manufacturers do hardware. Carriers become dumb pipes. Thanks, signed everyone who uses smart phones.
