It is still fresh news but I am wondering what this "victory" means for Samsung lovers who own any of the Galaxy phones. In South Korea my understanding is that Samsung has to stop selling the GS II. Any thoughts?

I doubt that the verdict and damages will be sustained under appeal.....people tend to forget that for a civil trial the jury verdict isn't 'official', the judge needs to approve it, and 90% of the time the judge responds by lowering the damages or just throwing out the verdict.

I see no reason why that won't happen in this case....

The case verdict here in America involving Samsung and Apple, comes in unfortunate timing as a their similar case in Korea was met with a split decision. Apple could ask for an injunction on the devices in question from both cases. While the American verdict is a serious blow to Samsung in terms of damages to Apple, I feel the Korean verdict is almost as crucial even as a split decision. Anytime court cases are held on home turf, it is always best to wish for majority win. Samsung has more to loose than Apple on their home turf for devices. Samsung will have to rely soley on the SGIII phones for sales while Apple has pretty much full reign of product line of phones to remain on sale in Sammy's territory. In Chess, it is best not to have your...

So let me get this right, because you can't remove the battery; this automatically means its not an exceptional device? I didn't know "what ifs" applied to the quality of a device. Majority of the time the device is replaced before the battery Rolling Eyes So the "what if" you need a new battery is rarely an issue. Not to mention if you havn't physically damaged or water damaged it would be covered for free by your manufacture....

Incorrect, Batteries go bad before devices in most cases, as a customer can use a good phone 2+ years (specially those who are on 2 year contracts) and batteries have a possible 1 to 1 1/2 yr usage built in with between 450-650 cycles. A cycle = 1 charge no matter the time, 2 mins or 2 hours. 365 days a year + plugging in your phone a minimal of 2 times a day = 730 cycles, way way over the maximum amount of capacity a battery normally holds.

Plus, its a warzone out there with all the 3rd party chargers incorrectly used to charge batteries at incorrect voltages, so I often see swollen/pregnant batteries because little johnny on lunch break with his friends or Mr. Johnson out on car pool for lunch with the coworkers uses his buds micro usb ...

Here in the upstate New York market as soon as our customer hit 18 months they want a new phone. In the years past people would keep there flip phones for years and years. Now people want the latest and greatest as soon as its available. So up here with ______ carrier maybe 5% of the time is someone actually out of contract upgrades. Realize up here we have a 85% smartphone mix

Plus with this theory my battery shoulc be dead before a year is up (specially with me charging the device upto 3 times daily.) I would say at about a year i have a 20% reduction in battery life. Far from being completely dead. At that point I wouldnt want to spend 40$ on a battery in a old phone when ill be getting one in 6 months anyways. Which will cost me $99.99 most likely.

Guess I've been lucky with my iPhone 4 that I bought launch day. I've used a 3rd party car charger a few times during that duration and use the cable the device came with to charge on my PC.

You are severely misunderstanding the capabilities of Li-ION batteries. A "charge cycle" does not count every time you plug in the phone. If you use your phone until dead through the day, and charge it back to 100%, that's one charge cycle. If you use your phone to 50%, charge it back up to 100%, that's half a charge cycle. If you use your phone down to 10%, then charge it back up, that's 1/10th of a charge cycle. If you use yoru phone down to 70%, charge it back up to 100%, then use it down to 50%, then charge it back up to 100%, that would be 80% of a charge cycle.

Do your homework.
