I’m one of those electronic consumers who love Samsung brand. I love their TV and computer monitors for their excellent picture quality. ...
I’m yet to get one of their smartphones as I’m still used to the Sony Xperia Smartphone version which has all the features like 720 HD Video, 8 MP still camera and others.
