    Hmm Samsung didn't really take down Apple, even if you mean by global market share, Apple isn't as "dead" as Nokia if you were to compare the 2 rivalries...

    Personally.... I don't care who take who down... I buy phone for its operating system (in my case... Android)... not so much who made the phone. If small/big/middle/fried rice could produce a good looking phone at affordable price... I'll gladly dump whichever phone maker I've using till now....

    The South Koreans should care... a lot... Samsung accounts for 20% of that country's GDP.

    XiaoMi is China bigger copycat phone maker.
    They copied a lots of the design from Apple & Samsung.
    They capture more market shares beooz their phones are cheap with reasonable features and speed.
    Quality is also so so although they used Foxxon as their subcon to assemble the phone.

    Once Apple release the Iphone 6 with bigger screen, the whole market shares for various phone will change.

    Unlike Nokia of Finland... Samsung don't just make Smartphone only.... so, unlikely they'll close shop due to XiaoMi's rising....

    Pls lor. Xiaomi is considered a small fry in Samsung's eyes

    Samsung does not depend on phones for survival. They made whole lot of products in the market.

    And xiaomi is only famous in china. There is the whole world out there, without china.

    With the reports about the Xiaomi phone (Redmi Note) talking to its "masters' in the Chinese government I have my doubts whether this thingy will take off elsewhere in the global market. In Europe or US it is pretty much unsellable with this feature. I wouldn't be surprised to see this in other models as well.

    That's the same level as all those reports describing the "calling home" function: imprecise, shallow, rather marketing than facts.

    I am sure when Apple appears, Nokia was in the state of denial, so does Apple thinking what is this poor Korean guy is trying to proof. A progressive company must recognize threat seriously. Even dynasty rises and falls over times. Behind this wave, there are bigger waves to come. hehe
