> In reply to ss @ 2011-10-30 13:24 from 9FLJ - click to readI agree, I also have heard s.e devices were vulnerable to falls. Especially one's like vivaz, x10 mini , x10 pro...
But I think thats something of the past.

I strongly believe in 2011 and 10, s.e have indeed made the devices better in hardware and software.
Coz I have dropped my bro's xperia mini around 12 times and my cedar countless number of times the least count would be 200 times. My bad, very careless.
I'd say its damn tough than my prev 3500 and 3110.

However Both s.e devices work steady as they were and doesnt got any problems. But my friend's c2-03 touch-type went blacked out at the 7th time that device fell. By the way, He is the one who now own c6-01.

My point is S.E have improved a lot in its vulnerable side and I believe its really bad to stereo-type a whole brand just because some models, none that I have experienced, got problems in the past.

this is predominantly a mobile phone website, if it's Apple P&L, there will b a lot of hoo-haa about a 20% increase but as it's Samsung, it's a 20% increase but overall Samsung profit drops.... what a great way of posting a company's performance which overall portfolio doesnt only cover mobile phones....

> In reply to Harsh @ 2011-10-30 10:12 from s8Ev - click to readif sony ericsson is much much better than samsung, they should have beaten up the sales of samsung, but se is nowhere to be found on top three. And one thing i've noticed with se phones, they are really vulnerable to destruction. Samsung and nokia devices i've used have great durability - i have dropped them accidentaly countless times but still working fine. But as far as my mates' experiences with sony erc devices, they wear out easily with just plain use of the devices themselves- the keys, the screens, and not a great support on their warranties. And, SE and NOkia phones really have that price that when you put that price when buying samsung phones, you'll really get better features.

it's true that samsung sells because of android. SE, motorola and some other devices out there are also using Android OS, but do you find them coping up with the sales of samsung?
personally, i like samsung as it is. Samsungis like Android simplified, with different choices. You do not have to choose whether black or white.

Cant understand how nr nokia fanboy boy can say amoled screens are oversaturated.He must love his old nokia antique.Samsung produce some of the best screens in the world and i own one of the tvs.They are truely amazing when set up correctly.I suggest nokia fanboy to come out of the dark ages and try one of the samsung phones you may be surprised and before you say anything i have used nokia for a while but find them old fashioned and the software junk and not fast enough in todays world.I also own an iphine 4 and prefer my gs2 for everyday use as it suits my needs.

Nokia CBD (Clear Black Display) only can compete with SuperAMOLED level. Which is the first generation of the SuperAMOLED.

Samsung has come out the 2nd and the 3rd generation Super AMOLED. And as well as the HD version of Super AMOLED. 2nd generation will be the "plus" version of super AMOLED. 3rd generation will used in their up coming "Galaxy S3"

  • tVma many experts, yet refusing to accept the truth.

Samsung simply OWNs the OLED(AMOLED, super, plus whatever you name it) market. They have most patents, techs and share(90%). Any OLED displays...they got supplied from Samsung and i don't think Samsung ships better displays to their rivals(nokia, se, moto...).

Therefore any OLED displays from Samsung is far superior. That's just a fact, guys.

colour saturation? someone thinks that they know more about the displays then the suppliers! what an expert...

probably as lower pixel density due to higher screen estate ;)

the problem with c6-01, which I have considered as a solution, is the OS and the hardware, in general. the design is also not so great. its big advantage: compact size!

> In reply to Nokia Fanboy PRO @ 2011-10-29 02:30 from kJX3 - click to readMe and my friends compared My bro's xperia mini's LED backlit Lcd bravia engine and one of my buddies c6-01 CBD, xperia mini looks almost same (a little better infact) than c6-01.

However when galaxy ace and c6-01 is compared, c6-01 stands out.

When comparison with galaxy s2's SAMOLED c6-01's CBD is not better. I think samsung super amoled is infact better fanboy. Got better colors, doesnt seem oversaturated.

Good for Samsung. They deserve it. They produce different phones for everyone the poor, the middle class and the richest. In other words, people pick the phone based on what they can afford. I like the idea.

You do not mention operating profit, like for the previous quarter a mere 3.7% for their telcom business including mobile phones and 13.7% for the last quarter even with the surge in sales. Is this a good business model when Apple margins are well in excess of 50%. So Samsung has to sell 4 times as many phones, say 3 times, just to match to same operating margin. In other words, Samsung is buying market share which is just plain bad business. Why buy a Samsung top spec mobile with top hardware that disguises os inefficiencies, and then find they release another top end mobile a few weeks later, meanwhile the value of your new mobile phone has just dropped by half.
