Whatever anyone says Sammy is STILL the most innovative company in the world today. FACT. Just wait until next quarter's results. Note 4 and Note Edge are eating the competition for dinner ,
Sammy phones are leaders when it comes to features, RAM, cores megapixels and ppi , Nobody can beat them in the smartphone game. Read it and weep crapple and crapmi fanboys !!,
Droid Ghost, 15 Dec 2014Samsung fan boys are running away from such news. I know them by names and they are even readi... moreJust taking Samsung & Xiaomi
Samsung caters for everybody from the PREMIUM flagship phone the NOTE 4, which there is NO direct competitor down to entry level phones
In between this Samsung will release virtually every possible spec configuration, and then again in different colours
Samsung stupidly did this NON removable battery in the A7 or no microSD in the Alpha?
Why are there 4 "metal" phones with similar specs Alpha, A3, A5, A7
(Ok hopefully Samsung will stop releasing a new phone each week and stick the plan removable Battery PLUS microsd)
Xiaomi are NOT premium phones that compete with the NOTE 4 but mid range phones sold at dirt cheap prices
Xiaomi may not be as sucessful as first appears as its gross margin is ONLY 2% so Xiaomi made $56.1 million for all of 2013. http://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_made_just_561_million_profit_in_2013_filing_unveils-news-10482.php
It also has a liability for patent infringement so could well be sued if it doesn't pay up
Finally Apple have only re-released the iPhone5 with a larger display added minor tweak and called it the iPhone 6
Anyone who say different does NOT know how to use phone comparison or appreciate that 2 years separate these phones
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2014I love Samsung!!!! Samsung is the king!!!!Yes and whatever they do is always spectacular and being the king they always lead!! Like in this report they lead in the 'fall in market share' category!! Best performance by a mile!
(that makes your comment relevant to the article)
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2014I love Samsung!!!! Samsung is the king!!!!King of lag
They all totally suck (Well Crapsung is barely acceptable with a few models, but still not close enough to what they should be).
Can't wait for project ARA, it should end the madness and aloow reasonable users to have a real high tech device, not a shiny toy for fan-boys
Mike, 15 Dec 2014Don't like either Apple/Samsung before you brand me a Fanboy and throw accusations around! ... moreTrue your last line, no good phone came out in 2014, they all just got bigger and thinner. Unfortunately this bad trend will continue far into 2015.
pradeep90, 15 Dec 2014Now I understand why xiaomi was banned in India look at this almost 300% growth for xiaomi .By... moreNo.. First off they didn't get banned. They have a sales injunction.. There is a substantial difference between them..
And they got the sales injunction because not only did they choose to infringe patents but also decided to ignore the legal notices by Ericsson whose patents they infringed..
Samsung fan boys are running away from such news. I know them by names and they are even reading this comment but want post anything until the see the light. But this time darkness is upon them and can not run away from the Chinese selling thunder that eating Samsung market day by day. Please, Xiaomi, Huawei, Lenovo Motorola we need same more quality android devices with cheaper price than Samsung.
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2014Where are the boastfull samfans now? Where are when their beloved company is struggling? I tho... moreDon't like either Apple/Samsung before you brand me a Fanboy and throw accusations around!
Even with Samsung's market share declining, they still have a bigger one than Apple. Your beloved company.
And to note its people like you that start arguments on here referring to people as "Fanboys". Instead of writing utter nonsense, write something constructive.
So something related to the post, its not surprising that this is happening as they are releasing no upgrades/updates to there mobiles just a different series under a new name/number. But I feel that all companies are moving this way.
Just to note I use a HTC one mobile and iPad mini 2, I am currently looking to upgrade my phone and will take any into consideration but there all shit atm.
Eske Rahn, 15 Dec 2014Good job MS!! /S You 'only' had a 20% higher market share that you lost.... 3.0% from 3.6% /SBut they sold more phones, the market grew more than what MS lost in marketshare. I think thats remarkable for such a frustrating OS. Anyway, also need to remember that its mostly low end devices, the emergence of usable Androids in the lower segment in big markets like India must have hit Lumia sales pretty hard.
Now I understand why xiaomi was banned in India look at this almost 300% growth for xiaomi .By the way it invaded market share had it not been for the ban it would have killed other brands in India.Now good time for Samsung to get its lost share in India.
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2014Where are the boastfull samfans now? Where are when their beloved company is struggling? I tho... moreDon't worry.. They will come by in sometime and explain how samsung is the biggest innovator and maker of the best devices (might even get a mention in about how apple turns to them for parts) :P
But trust me samsung fanboys are the only ones whose hate doesn't stop at apple.. They will go on to hate their android counterparts sony, xiaomi, htc and even hardware riavls likes qualcomm, tsmc etc.. Good they aren't into manufacturing SGlass yet then hey will hate corning for gorilla glass too..
Srikant B, 15 Dec 2014Where is sony..Sony is doing their best to stay irrelevant and keep out of the sales charts, and they are successful once again. The phone maker who doesnt want to sell phones, and their plan for the next two years is to sell 30% fewer phones (not a joke, duckduckgo it, they actually said it)
Yep, 15 Dec 2014Premature assertation their...... too early to tell where they will goHey am lumia 830 user I love wp but going by current market share will anyone care for wp .It is a dead horse floating by the way side.Even MS would kill it as no developers would be interested in such a lower share.Low end which was wp face is being demolished by android.High end going apple mid end also android wp washing down the drain.
Duel, 15 Dec 2014Samsung best days are in pass. Chinese vendors killing samsung low and mid end markets and App... moreYa agreed apple is going to conquer high end other OEMS are onlookers that is it.
So wp market share dwindling I think wp will become extinct within few years.K only fittest will survive that means only android or iOS.Feel sorry for MS you are falling like nine pins.oh no with current trends wp death is inevitable.
