    Samsung is made in South Korea, HTC is made in Taiwan, Motorola is made in the USA, Sony is made in Japan and LG is made in South Korea.

    I read somewhere long ago that most of Samsung's phones were assembled in China.

    Well, Samsung's a Korean company as well - and while LG makes their phones in Korea, Samsung seems to manufacture them in China now, which isn't nice, I think.

    Some clarification, the MotoX is assembled not made in the USA. The majority of components are "made in" Asia and Europe.

    Well those are definitely where the companies are from. Our s5's were manufactured in Vietnam. The boxes and packaging were printed in south Korea. LG manufactures many of their TVs and componants in Vietnam and the Phillippinnes.

    Hello guys I got my new S5 I live in canada vancouver and before putting the battery in I saw the sticker that said "made in china" not assembled NO. Its MADE IN CHINA. I called samsung gave them my IMEI number and model number SM-G900W and they said its authentic. I had an S4 which was made in korea assembled in china and when I was in europe they told me that my S4 is the low grade S4 and that made in vietnam is considered high grade. So I was wondering what is my S5 considered? Did I get shafted right now or is this a completely normal device sold in north america.

    Maybe a few ppl actually care where its made as long as it works and its smooth but i for one saw first hand difference between the chinese and Vietnamese maker of the camera at least on the s4 and it was earth to sky difference.

    I agree!
    Unfortunately just about everything in America is made in China (or somewhere else). A friend of mine argued that he never buys anything made in China...right.
    I asked to see his shirt tag, uh oh.....shoes, wallet, belt, etc. all made in China. I told him to go home and check every appliance in his house....TV, stereo, land-line phone, hair dryer.......
    Guess what?
    Our import to export ratio is way out of whack. We need to get a handle on this.

    According to the report from PCMag.com, GS5 for Korean, Japanese carriers and AT&T are assembled in Korea, to be specific, Samsung campus in Gumi. Samsung have their own phone assembly lines in Korea, Vietnam and China. I guess what determines "Made in XXX" label is usually the carrier to which the device is supposed to be shipped.
