I recently switched from iPhone 4S to Galaxy note and I love its bigger screen. I can't read what's in iPhone anymore...

Samsung is on to something particularily for asia -its a 'Face' thing. Back in the day the 'Motorola Brick Phone' was a favorite around HK, it was a status symbol easily recognisable confidently dumped on the YUM CHA tables at the best restuarants for all to see. Enter the Samsung Note, I am betting same thing goes with this device, its clearly visible, its distinctive and it gets attention from passing patrons. I have a Note and even though I am not in asia it gets comments for the same reason. Yes it has some technical advantages but in the end it may be all about status and 'face'.

The young man you spoke to in the Hong Kong subway must have had HUGE pockets! An iPhone barely fits in my pocket. No possible way I would get a Galaxy in there.

This begs the question, though: If Apple sells only one type of phone with one type of OS, can you actually compare the sales to a competitor that sells multiple variations with multiple OS's? Isn't it more accurate to compare Samsung's best selling phone to the iPhone?
