TheITguy, 24 Dec 2014UK is moving to Windows Phone. Secure OS while having consistent UI.@ TheITguy
You've got a fantastic sense of humour. I laughed for ages at your joke.
That location isn't that good. It was only busy last year during the Olympics. The Oxford Street branch is really busy, was there a few times last month.
Everyone is going in the wrong direction here, this store shut because Phones 4U went, the flagship stores are seriously busy places.
As for the phone, I have a Note 4, it's superb, build quality is excellent and it's specifications are the best there is.
Haters will hate, that's just the way it goes when you're at the top of the pile.
73.9% drop in profits is more precise and its not small..
And do check the character code below ur post
People are turning away from Samsung because there are equally good alternatives from Sony and HTC.

IfIf u don't believe then u don't know how to read.
Superior products huh? Yeah. Keep telling yourself that because Samsung will soon go down the drain with all its plastics. Lol
This story has all stemmed from ONE tweet. The store shut because it was run through Phones 4u which is now bust. All other Samsung Experience Stores are run by Carphone Warehouse and the new flagship is the Samsung store on Oxford Street.

extraordinarily high prices = poor sales, these phones cost more than latest i5 desktops, or even 2nd or 3rd gen i7 desktops! productivity wise they are 0.

this happens when u start copying The Leaders (Apple and Nokia) blindly and cant even sell your flagship (S5) properly!

You must be dreaming with thiefs. Your problem and of much people here is envy, envy of one companie like Samsung that has sucess and doesn't needs mafia foreign admnistrators and ceo's like Stephen Elop for destroy companies like Nokia and then sell them to companies like Microsoft.

Its not about spec on the sheet yes every android phone has 3GB ram and let me tell you by 2020 every android phone may even have 16GB Ram yet Apple wouldnt and thats because of optimisation.
Android is open source hence its made to run on different chipsets from Samsung to HTC hence why the OS is not optimised and requires so much power to run android could not run on 1GB ram but iOS could? Why is this?
Im not a Apple fan, but when poeople bring pointless points up it pisses me off. Yes apple is overpriced i agree but dont compare specs on sheets. Read about technologies and educate yourself.
You could have a 5MP camera that takes stunning pictures due to the lense yet you could get yourself a 50MP camera that is nothing like that 5MP...WHY?
Becuase MegaPixel is just the size of that picture yet the lense is what makes it look so amazing....
RAM is to process Read Only Memory...Having 4GB vs 1GB doesnt mean anything which runs better is the key.
How far will Android go? 20-30 MP Camera, 8GB RAM, 8-Core Processors, 4K displays? Yes it looks good on paper but why are you upgrading and paying for a new Android phone just because it sounds better?
AT the moment as an example NOTE 4 vs iPHONE 6 the samsung has double or even 4/5x the spec of the iPhone yet they run at the same speed the camera quality well thats for you to decide but how is that 3GB more beneficial then the 1GB?
django, 24 Dec 2014calm down.. samsung is noway miles ahead of others in technology .. now other android OEMs... moreSamsung is still the best among android phone makers with the very latest hardware, software's and the most advanced features no others can match. The recent downfall is because of the boring design and cheap built and of course entry of chinese brands with decent hardware and cheap price made it worse They should get rid of that hardware home key first then the capacitive keys and put on screen keys, use good quality materials and come up with a good design and price cut. Instead of churning out so many phone models of almost same specs and features every now and then. Launch good ones that vary in specs and features.Then they can return to their good old days.
