    Samsung's new earnings reports just came out, and they pretty much solidified themselves as the ruling king of all smartphones.

They nearly doubled their profit thanks to this record. Samsung's profit was up 91% over the same quarter last year, with $6 billion in profit on $47.6 billion in sales.
