This is not how it works. Adaptive tuning "sticks" until something

Ah... that's misleading. Samsung is bigger world wide, sure, but not
all of Samsung's smartphones run Android. Your assertion was that
Android was bigger than iOS so it's not fair to include Windows Phone
and Bada in Samsung's market share figures.

under normal circumstances.

ANYWAY. Joe Consumer doesn't give a damn about any of this. He just
