    Samsung's diversity of products makes it a very interesting company to follow. After buying my Galaxy S a few years ago, I began taking a closer look at their other offerings. As a result I'm currently enjoying a 65" Samsung Smart TV, a refrigerator as well as washer and dryer. Quite a different scenario as compared to buying into the Apple ecosystem. :)
