At this time I'd say it seems like samsung is doing everything right with respect to giving customers what they want. The people I know with samsung phones seem to like them and that's a fair number of people.

More generally, all that Samsung does tends to be at last decent, often quite good. Oh yeah, and Samsung does virtually everything (so people are exposed often to its name, across different categories of products)

Also, samsung is a very very large conglomerate of vertical industries. Which means they can, and do, pool insane marketing budgets and effort when it comes to markets they deem profitable.
