  • Samsung's Galaxy S4: What the Koreans are saying

    Usually it's Apple that gets savaged by Korean users. Not this time.

    FORTUNE -- "The initial reaction from South Korean users -- garnered Friday from 100s of comments to the news aggregator Naver -- ranges from tepid praise to complete scorn for the Galaxy S4, with negative comments currently predominating around 4:1."

    So wrote our Seoul-based reader "Jake_in_Seoul" in the commentary to Friday's post Samsung's Galaxy S4: What the press is saying.

  • Video: Walking the endless Samsung Galaxy S4 line

    After the first few hundred people, I lost count.

    FORTUNE -- Before the Samsung lauch event at New York City's Radio City Music Hall Thursday evening it took me nearly three minutes to walk past the queue of people that ran up Sixth Avenue and halfway across 51st Street. I never got around to filming the crowd gathered at the VIP and media entrances on 50th Street.

    Does this mean that Samsung MORE

  • Chart of the day: Can Apple regain the smartphone lead?

    Apple owned the market for two fleeting quarters, and it may never own it again.

    FORTUNE -- In an interview about the impact of Samsung's Galaxy S4 on Apple (AAPL), Anouch Seydtaghi, deputy economics editor for the Swiss newspaper Le Temps, asked Asymco's Horace Dediu what seemed like a perfectly reasonable question:

    Q: Can Apple regain the lead in the smartphone market? If yes, how?

    Dediu responded, characteristically, with a chart:

  • Samsung's Galaxy S4: What the Apple analysts are saying

    After the big build-up and over-the-top stage show, there were few surprises

    FORTUNE -- Evolutionary, not revolutionary, was the general consensus. As for what Samsung's new phone means for Apple (AAPL), the jury was split.

  • New Samsung Galaxy S4? Meh.

    Samsung's latest Galaxy S phone may be a technical wonder, but it's increasingly the base software that really matters in mobile.

    By Cyrus Sanati

    FORTUNE -- Samsung's splashy launch party for its fourth-generation Galaxy S mobile device isn't going to have much of an impact in its war with Apple. That's because the battleground for dominance in the mobile space has shifted away from the hardware and physical design of phones and toward MORE

  • Live from Radio City Music Hall: Samsung's Galaxy S4

    The drumroll for Samsung's new phone is bigger than anything Apple ever produced

    FORTUNE -- The line outside Radio City Music Hall was long -- longer than any Apple (AAPL) iPhone or iPad launch I've covered. (YouTube video: Walking the line.)

    The press presence was ridiculous -- there were three media doors, one for video, two for print, and it still took more than an hour to get in. The rumor in MORE

  • Samsung's event marketing makes Apple's hype look tame

    Pulling out all the stops for the Galaxy S4 in Radio City Music Hall and Times Square

    FORTUNE -- Steve Jobs, the past master of high-tech event marketing, was famous for treating the launch of Apple's (AAPL) new products as if they were Broadway openings, although lately Apple has been moving its events to smaller and smaller venues.

    Samsung, famous for flattering Apple by imitation, has taken the Broadway metaphor quite literally. MORE
