One solid proof that Samsung has indeed penetrated, if not changed the world, is the fact that it has successfully made its mark in Germany where people are not that big on phones and gadgets. In Germany, Samsung is the most trusted brand, even beating the famous Apple iPhone 5. This first quarter of 2013, Samsung has reported an increase in the number of people switching to the company’s line of Android Galaxy devices.

With an available Flash plug-in, video streaming is quite fast. You can watch your favorite music videos on YouTube instantly. According to statistics, the majority of users switching to Android phones are men between 20 – 40 years old. The reason behind this could be that Android phones are perfect for the most common of men’s interests, such as watching videos and gaming.
