    Do/Does "company name"

    1) Do [Company name] smartphone need anti virus?
    2) Does [Company name] smartphone need anti virus?

    1 or 2 is correct? I think 2 is correct, but I saw people using 1 too?

    Some titles I saw:
    Do Apple products need anti virus software? discussions.apple.com/message/22253219#22253219

    Look at the highlighted letters, does that help you to understand? The "h" in "have" and in "hint" should not be capitalised.

    Re: Do/Does "company name"

    Those appear to be headlines, which is why the words are capitalized.

    Is it ok to capitalize all the words in the title?

    Is it wrong to capitalized common words (not sure the right name to call it) in title e.g. the, is, are, a

    How to know what are common words?

    It seems like "have" is not a common word in "Do Samsung Galaxy S4 Phones Have a Security Hole?"

    Re: Do/Does "company name"

    Generally, do not capitalize prepositions or articles. Do capitalize nouns and verbs, including forms of the verb "to be."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Do/Does "company name"

    Oh, from the title I thought this was going to be about the Br/Am differences around "Do Samsung have" and "Does Samsung have" but sadly, that's not the case.

    (please correct me if I am wrong) I think these are correct:
    Does Samsung has
    Do Samsung have
    Does Samsung phone has
    Do Samsung phones have
