Anonymous, 18 Nov 2014They should just make three smartphones, flagship, midrange and low end, plus a tablet.I agree on that and lower the tag price.
MdN8, 18 Nov 2014Nokia N1 has full Google services (sadly) but no, they aren't making phones ever again.they just not manufacture only, the brand will come back & they will in charge for hardware, software & QC
they should cut it by 95%
they got so many models, that they don't really support most of them. only the flagships, get mediocre support.
"focus will fall on the entry-level and mid-range phone segments" and "As a result, the company plans to get back to double-digit percentage margin" - are they completely RETARDED? I mean - come on - that mind/low range is a red-shark-sea with lot of "new" companies that manage to get bettar name and reputation than "Samsung"... this is it (for Samsung Electronics) - the CEOs are completely in safe mode (bluntly lying - just to save their seats few more Qs - they know that company is not savable anymore)
I remember a time when phones were released on a yearly basis.. And each and every phone was a flagship.
Speaking of which, I missed my Sony Ericsson W580i.
Great news! Maybe they'll stop releasing so many devices that they supersede in 6 - 12 months and never bother properly supporting with firmware updates....
Release more low end phone? You will die much quicker!
China phone is cheap but high-end spec.
You shall only keep S series, Note series and a middle range series. Low end wise you can just forget it.
MdN8, 18 Nov 2014Nokia N1 has full Google services (sadly) but no, they aren't making phones ever again.Nokia is only forbidden to make Nokia phones until December 31 of 2015.
After that they can be back in to business
Brilliant move. They make rnd cost lower amd we hope for a lower price too. Too bad for LG, their ain't much to copy.
Instead of consentrating for low end devices samsung can do one thing. Keep a standard for all the price levels. Offer maximum features, concentrate on all the segments. In low end you can only increase the market share, but profit will be less.
For that high end devices are must. Samsung is the only one company which can compete with Apple on status wise and features wise.
Please consentrate on all the areas by some standardised models, not like 1000 models without much market focus

MdN8, 18 Nov 2014Nokia N1 has full Google services (sadly) but no, they aren't making phones ever again.ofcourse they will make smartphones again.
they cant make amartphones only till 2016 3rd quarter.
get ur facts straight.
I would not even care to develop and release and support and update low class phones. Samsung WAKE UP - check your biggest competitor: APPLE - what they do? They have basically 1 single phone in two sizes. You dear Samsung only need a samsung galaxy S phone (plus its dual SIM sibling) and a Samsung Galaxy note phablet. Nothing else. Release SGS6 and then Note 5- and forget the flood of useless cheapos.
Good idea of Samsung :) but more low/mid range phones by Samsung - terrible
AnonD-158376, 18 Nov 2014I'll never buy Samsung with touchwiz... If they release the same hw with stock android, then i... moreDid you buy the Samsung Galaxy Nexus Or the Galaxy S4 GPE?
If not, the S5 GPE launch is imminent.
i dun understand why samsung release so many low end phone ? just continue the old series like S5 S6 S7 NOTE 5 NOTe 6
for midrange galaxy ACE
low end YOUNG 2 YOUNG 3
instead galaxy pocket , music , star , core
AnonD-304819, 18 Nov 2014Samsung has too many models and buyers get lost among them. If they cut 50% of its portfolio, ... moreYep i will not notice coz i care about none of their models, region locked crap.
Anyway funny to read that they will both get back into two digit profit AND fight Xiaomi in China, sorry to say those two are not at all compatible, you can do both if its a small market and let the losses there drown in the profit from big markets but China is already the biggest market so i cant see that working too well.
