It seems Apple is out of revolutionary innovation which can be shown through the newly launched iPhone5. Then, will Apple declines its smartphone shipments or reduce its consumer loyalty? The gap between Apple and Samsung in smartphone shipments will become lager?

No, 2009, and these were messages from one of their executives. Anyway, they also use cheap labor, which is my point.

Samsung's gumi plant still manufactures most of its flagship phones. Samsung only outsources manufacturing of low end phones. Workers in gumi plants make more than $ 35,000 a year. When did u visit there? 1980?

This reminds me of something. A wise man, his name is Gordon Moore, once said: if someone uses the phrase 'everyone knows' you can be sure that no one knows anything. He once said 'no more than 1000 Personal computers will ever sell'. That has taught him a lesson. The site you refer to, the Apple hater site, quotes an article that bashes Apple for using cheap labor. What percentage of Android phones do you think is made by the same cheap labor? Have you ever visited the Samsung's Gumi plant where they used to make phones? That one is in Korea, and the conditions are quite appalling. They went from there to China, but the only difference is in Korea no one complains about them using cheap labor.

Well, at least one guy who understands how Apple works. It's been like that for years and years. Remember how people begged Aple in the late 80's to find a way to commoditize it's computers? They never did, that's not their game.

News flash guys but Apple is not trying to be the market share leader in smartphones. Apple makes roughly 20% of all cell phones but commands +80% of all profits which includes Samsung. While it may feel good that a company is the share leader it's making money that matters. Just ask Dell and HP about how that share feels in a PC world vs Apple.

I was proud of the innovations of Apple -- until the lawsuit. If Samsung copied Apple, how come double the shipments if the Korean company's costs are higher than a Apple's and the prices the same? Already Samsung, who is a world leader in phone displays is bowing out of supplying Apple -- that and the ill feelings will cost Cupertino way more than the Billion dollars they had to share with their lawyers. But wow did they show everybody that they wouldn't stand for anybody copying their flat, rounded rectangles.

I don't think it was that hard. Everyone knows Apple is on a steady decline. http://bit.ly/IC4m9t

I have to say, I'm not surprised. I think Samsung has won this particular round, and put out superior phones to Apple this year. The Galaxy S3 is really something new and (dare I say) "cutting edge", while the new iPhone hardly brought anything new to the table. I'm not saying that the iPhone is a bad phone... quite the contrary. But if you want people to "upgrade" you have to give them a good reason to.
