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?

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.

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'.

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 Galaxy Note looks better. Apple need to give alternate option to consumer.

"I wonder if Samsung should sue Apple for stealing the new smartphone look-and-feel when a big screen iPhone 5 comes out?" Yes by all means. The patent office should start issuing patents on particular dimensions. I want to patent 5.5 inches. Anyone that builds anything of that length or width would pay me a royalty on my amazing invention.

No, the concept you are describing has nothing to do with accuracy. You are merely expressing a desire to present different information. Either of those sets of information could be accurate or inaccurate.

I've debated the issue of bigger phone or smaller phone and fold up reading glasses. Either way, it's a lot to fit in one's pocket.

With the S3 Sam stole a lead over "frenemy" Apple because they used their own 32 nm HKMG process to build the QUAD CORE Exynos in it. Can't drive a larger screen unless you have a faster Graphics processor that won't burn too much battery ( transistors with HKMG ). Samsung was holding back their 32 nm process from Apple when the A5 or A5X came out. Won't be too long now b4 we find out what Fab process the A6 (?) for iPhone5 is built with - 32 nm HKMG from Samsung or maybe they would shift Fab business to TSMC ( 28 nm LP ) to teach Sam a lesson ?

Most people in the other parts of the world covering Asia and Europe don't drive often. Public transportation is the primary mean to get from point A to point B. Therefore, they usually carry a briefcase or a small backpack. If you carry a small backpack mostly standing in a bus or a train plus a mile of walking, you will likely prefer to carry less than 5lbs, definitely less than 10lbs. A small form factor will help reducing the weight. 1 less item will definitely be the choice. Instead of carrying 1 iPad and 1 iPhone, why not carrying 1 bigger screen smart device? If they have to, they still have room to carry 1 more ultra light weight laptop. Make sense?

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
