Galaxy S IV is the beginning of the end of Samsung’s smartphone dominance

I'm going way out on a limb here, and cutting it off behind me.

But I have a theory. The more Samsung "adds value" to Android by customizing a version of it for the Galaxy line of phones, as it's doing with its new Galaxy S IV, the more it will suck.

This is, of course, the company that sold 400 million freaking phones last year. And 57 million smartphones in just one quarter of 2012. Samsung seems, more than any other, to be the company that has shaved a few hundred billion off Apple's share price.

But companies, like people, do best when they stick to what they're good at. Better yet, what they're great at.
