You people [insert random "what do you mean, "you people"? joke here] never cease to amuse me
iOS by itself already made any iPhone worse than any other phone, and Windows phones are following that trend. No amount of hardware advantages would make the iPhone the best. For an analogy, it's like installing Windows 98 in an SSD (Corsair's Neutron for example) and claim it's much better than Windows 7 installed in "only" a Western Digital Caviar Black. Although that's a bit unfair of an analogy since Windows 98 is quite old. So then let's compare Linux with Windows 7 instead. Still the same issue. Putting Linux in an SSD didn't automatically make the Linux+SSD combo better than the 7+HDD combo.

Whoa! That's a lot of attributes you're associating with samsung phone ownership there!
I do not, nor will i ever understand how it is that corporations manage to get consumers to have such strong feelings of loyalty or hatred. Is this the geek version of rooting for your favorite sports team? Just because company X made a good product 2 years ago, or company Y has people that annoy you enjoying their products, why does that affect the product you will buy today? Get the device that suits you the best and stop sweating these multi-billion dollar corporations that could care less if you live or die (unless of course you'r killed using one of their products and your family sues them).
Of course the description is not restricted to Samsung customers, it could apply to HTC, LG, etc., just not the followers of the Sacred Word of the Holy Apple.
And as I have said countless times, the Holy Apple, the Blessed Company of Cupertino, the True Bringer of Enlightenment, the Bastion of Real Innovation, the Messenger of the Sacred Word, the Church of the Lord Steve Jobs, is not a corporation, it is a religious institution.
