But if you showed people a GS3 and said 'This is the new GS4' people would do the exact same thing.
No, people wouldn't do the exact same thing because it's not as "cool" as an Apple product.
Plus, how many people did they have to ask to get the reactions they did? Hundreds? Thousands?
Most likely twenty. They don't ask people that many.
Honestly, the whole 'making fun of people lining up' smells of jealousy on the part of Samsung.
Jealousy? Well, probably, because for one thing Samsung can't price their phones at the very same pricepoint even though they make better phones, as there is no such thing as a "Samsung tax" and only a "tithe for the Holy Apple".
Whens the last time anyone wanted a Samsung phone so bad they waited in line just to get it first thing in the morning?
Why would a perfectly reasonable, rational, good in fiscal management, Samsung customer follow the example of someone wasting resources (money and/or time) to queue?
Samsung's phones are nice, no doubt, but how is it any different really from a One X, or a Razr HD, or an Optimus 4X HD? The hardware is all the same, the software is all the same.
LOL all those reviews are wrong then. Pop to techradar for example, and you'll see that all of their reviews are wrong
because the One X and GSIII, etc. are all the same, unlike what their reviews say.
