Samsung asked the Japanese carrier Docomo to sell their phones unbranded to try to increase their market share. People don't buy Samsung phones in Japan. Do they know something we don't or vice versa?
LG retains its name on their Japanese market-only smartphones. What does it mean?
AnonD-1825, 20 Apr 2015Have you ever seen any reality shows? In cut room you can make people to believe anything you ... moreDude, the point I wanted to make was about why fruit fans buy the fruit product. Its not about the authenticity of reality shows.
However this jimmy kimmel stunt portrays one well known fact, that there are a large group of people who will trust any fruit product no matter what, what is better known as blind trust. That is what brand equity or brand value is all about.
Now when this is extrapolated to a very large scale with monopolistic practices, then it is upto you to judge whether this is a good thing or not.
On a lighter note, what is this "opposite version" you are talking about, A fruit product with a casio label!!! Thats just... absurd, what else can I say. btw if you happen to see mkbhd's first impressions of the said product, there's a very interesting observation he makes... If this itime or i whatever would have been showcased by a "well known korean" brand, then they would simply have been laughed off the stage, Just because it has the fruit logo, it can pull this stunt off.

Maybe this author should tell the reader what in the world a Docomo is. Before throwing the word around like we see it all the time.
AnonD-312360, 20 Apr 2015Dude come on, I know you can come up with something better than this copying allegation. This ... moreHave you ever seen any reality shows? In cut room you can make people to believe anything you want. Im sure that from the material which they shot they could have made exact opposite version too, but who would have wanted to see that? :) get it? That would have been stupid video.
DROPPNG samsung in japan market and replace with jap carrier DCOMO ok for jap market -DCOMO is jap most popular carrier - but internationaly samsung should retain under patent GALAXY logo .. and mot importantly -- fewer best specs best prices new models .. btw- 5inch galaxy s4 fits my top jacket pocket perfectly -- keep that way ..LESSER samsung own bloatwares please ..
DJJ, 20 Apr 2015So now samsung is copying apple as apple doesnt say "APPLE" on any of their products... moreDude come on, I know you can come up with something better than this copying allegation. This has just dragged on for so long that its very boring.
As you say the fruit company doesn't spell its name on its product, that's because the fruit fans will consume anything with a fruit logo on its back. Here is an interesting example from a long time back. It shows how fruit fans go on praising how innovative and outstanding a $20 casio watch is ( just because it has a fruit sticker on its back ) and it becomes the itime or iwhatever something from a far away galaxy!!
useful logo,in that place could be bigger screen in the same phone dimension
So now samsung is copying apple as apple doesnt say "APPLE" on any of their products on the front or back. Just their logo. LOL
I think samsung saw it by jolla sailfish phone. Jolla doesnt have any logo on front
AnonD-265082, 20 Apr 2015Why?Because Docomo paid ALOT of money to have their brand on the back of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge
Idk. I like the branding. Unbranded android phones Always look like a Chinese knockoff to me.
Without logo looks are more premium. Just to buy in Japan :) .
Edge being so different I wouldn't be afraid of some copycats.
