But just in case all this did not cheer you up, we have some comic relief from HTC and Nokia who took to Twitter to troll the Galaxy S5.
HTC clearly can’t wait to show us their very best in the long-awaited M8 and Nokia just joined the Android party. Maybe they have ideas on how Android devices can be done better.
In retaliation, Samsung co-CEO JK Shin took a jibe at Nokia (not directly) when he was referring to Smartphone innovations and what consumers want so I guess they are now even.
