everyone is cheating in benchmarks according to latest. Samsung just got caught first. This makes it an even playing field. Kinda like affair (can't remember name) from few years back about anonymous data collection, when Verizon publicly stated they never ever used that software, but when asked directly if they use something else for data gathering, they went silent. Later it turned out they indeed were.
Although I wholeheartedly agree that samsung appeals less and less the more they suck balls to enterprise and I myself am not sure if the next year's phone is gonna be samsung. Basically if everyone else sucks, then it might be, otherwise it's a tossup
