But Samsung aims to replace DSLRs with HDR imaging and phase-detection autofocus in the S5. So it's no wonder that it's "really necessary" for them! I preordered the S5 because my old phone (Galaxy S) is getting slow with all the new stuff smartphones are supposed to support and execute. My GF will be happy with my old one and I have a new phone that will last a few years.

So wait... Google sued MS. Google won and wanted money but microsoft disagreed and brought that case to the next court where MS was convicted to pay LESS money but still money. And then, MS sued Google because Google sued MS over stuff which was part of a standard by the time MS sued bigG? That's really f*d up.

It seems intuitively obvious to me, which means that it might be wrong. -- Chris Torek
