Maybe they shouldve focused on making products rather than ads mocking Apple.
That's because they put a sky high price for their flagship. Because of it consumers are looking elsewhere for alternatives which can give same Android experience at a relatively low price. Samsung now feels the presence of stiff competition in the mobile battlefield. They have to rethink their pricing strategy. Samsung, don't base your price on the laurels of your famous Galaxy lines. Here in the Philippines for example, a Note 4 costs Php37,990 while a top-of-the-line Lenovo or Asus flagships cost around Php24,900 or less. What do you think a smart consumer will choose?
AnonD-265900, 24 Nov 2014Android phones are not expensive but Samsung does make it so exp3nsive. How can you sell t... moreSamsung sells touchwiz. Thats why it is expensive. But..... unfortunately touchwiz laggy.
Shamesung, please continue with below.
1. Price of all the products must be equal to or above i-product.
2. No firmware update in future to any product.
3. Launch a new handset everyday with same specifications.
You can reach on TOP within no time. (Sarcasm)
Digitimes Research released its third-quarter reports outlining the state of the smartphone industry. It seems Samsung, Apple, and LG are the global top-three smartphone makers at the moment, followed by Chinese heavyweights Huawei, Xiaomi, and Lenovo at the fourth, fifth, and seventh spots. However, it is the bunny-loving Xiaomi that's leading the pack in terms of shipment growth. Meanwhile, ZTE, a considerably important Chinese telecom and vendor, has completely disappeared from the top 10 list.
What a ptedictable outcome of same sung.... Every one saw it coming. No wonder their management is literally sleeping.... They thougt after getting sucess with S and Note series they are golden *;D
They should make few phones they are so many that it gives me a headache so I skip it and they should make there phones good looking
I can't understand where Nokia and Samsung two giants going!! They are going down!! And nokia already gone!! Now Samsung is going down??
If this two giants start making their new series with new start... Then it will kill all other brands!
Android phones are not expensive but Samsung does make it so exp3nsive.
How can you sell the note 4 for $1000 while the Nexus 6 with same CPU , ram, GPU and come with the latest android Lollipop out of the box just cost $650.
No more Samsung ever and no more Touchtwiz UI also for me.
less phones , less blotware in the phones, the touchwiz from samsung really sucks and is lagy and faster updates for galaxy S line ...have a samsung galaxy S4 and stil dont have update to 4.4.4 wile others recieve 5.0 , im switching to sony xperia Z3
Samsung sale is declining due to the fact that the Company has been producing high end mobiles year after years with the same design and there is no innovation in the design element.
So many phones in one year!!!!??? That's the one reason for this damage!
Needed actions to regain consumer interest, confidence and loyalty:
1. Vastly cut down product line up and advertising budget
2. One budget phone, one midrange phone, one high-end phone MAX per year. Same for phablet and tablet lineup.
3. VASTLY improve specs/price ratio to at least Moto G standards.
4. Stock Android only, with no added junkware
5. No dumb SIM/region locking or KNOX e-fuse or other anti-consumer nonsense.
6. Make sure to support devices to latest Android for at least 1 year, preferably 2.
7. No more boring unchanging S3 inspired design and plastic fetish.
8. Don't release devices for the sake of gimmicks.
Now where is my $1 million bonus paycheck, Samsung?
Now that samsung logo should be mentioned in the Time magazine's 2014 best inventions.
