AI, 26 Sep 2015Dont you guys get it? The phones itself chooses its Wielder.Then the iphone has choosen 300mil people with a full wallet.
Duel, 25 Sep 2015"buy iphones because of the brand itself" Brand and status are two very different things...... moreThat's why I said the brand itself, not the product of the brand. When the brand has intrinsic value and isn't just a signal of quality or whatever. Which makes it the same as status.

Brand and status are two very different things...
I can say i buy iPhone nowdays because of the brand, i just bought samsung tv because of the brand, i bought sony 3D blu ray because of brand. Etc.
Why? Because i know those brands are great and i have had great user experience with those. But i don't buy iPhone for status (well it wouldn't even be any status in my country, it's just phone among others), that has nothing to do with buying status.
Same way you can say lot of people buy samaung phone for status, but you are mixing two completely different things.

Most people, or at least a substantial amount, buy iphones because of the brand itself, not the phone. Everyone knows that.

There will come a day when the world will be ruined by phones...
Arif238, 24 Sep 2015Yeah, you are right. You can't make Lemonade with Apple :P :DExactly, cider is way better

They bounced back so dont judge samsung yet with their current state because the possibility for them to bounce back is higher than apples previos state.
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2015You are so fixated to the extent that you think samsung only has the mobile division or perhap... moreWell im talking about samsung mobile business of course, not Samsung overall. Of course samsung isnt going to die, but their mobile business is going to that direction currently and i can't see how they can turn it.
They would have to leave android and doing something own which can stand out like iPhone, but its quite impossible now when android and iOS are so big already.

Even though if u put it that the mobile division would go down they still have a lot more to make a profit from and operate on.Unlike apple were a big chuck of the company is all based on their mobile division.
Soo think about it and who would go down first if someone makes a mistake.

Same said about Nokia and where they are now, things are changing very fast in mobile world. Just two years ago samsung did a very good job and now they are doing very badly and going deeper and deeper and i hardly doubt they can change the direction to up anymore. The competition is way too hard and you really can't stand out with android and chinese companies selling same device with three times cheaper. The situation for samaung is horrible and not only for samsung, its horrible for all big android compamies and like you can read from the news all of them sales are down.
Samsung even predicted to have very bad holiday q which should be companies best q.

Samsung is too huge to go down and fail. Huge as in all the android phone company profit combine couldn't beat Samsung. It would take more than a hundred years if they go down at this rate. Barely failing. They still the second largest smartphone company. Their profit is going down by only a small margin but their profit still higher by a large margin than other smartphone companies.
Duel, 24 Sep 2015"explain why the margin is so high if samsung was that high I would be saying the same thing a... moreLol no you haven't explained anything you just repeated the same bs about apple selling millions of handsets the profit margin for 1 handset sold by Apple is 79% the same if they sell millions so why is the profit margin so high ? The answer is they charge through the roof it's not hard to work out if samsung buys 10 apples for 1 pond then sells them for 4 pounds there profit margin is 40% but apple are selling the same 10 apples for £7.90 so that's were there ripping people off but if your too thick to see that then your loss not mine lol
Okie I'm android user myself and I use a Moto x which stands right next to a nexus
The reason I told this before is to let you know I'm not biased.
And being an faithful android user for that long I must I'm planning to make a switch just because I think 3D touch(force touch) could be of might be a significant first step to something awesome.
I havent seen anything in the smart fone market other than the "spec war" in the recent times.
And at this point Iphone has pretty much caught up with most of the stuff that we have in android.
So i think i'm gonna give this a try. I'm not a fanboy who trusts some company blindly but i think this is pretty neat an improvement

Didnt i explained it already? They sell tens of millions flagship phones every q, of course they make money. Samsung did lot more money when S4 was big hit, now last two years they have had very difficult times, because S5 and S6 has been huge flops.
The margins are very high for htc, lg, sony and samsung flagship phones, too bad the devices aren't selling.
And about samsung, they arent doing well, they are heading nokia direction, their profit have been down 7 last quarters, they are big like nokia so the big drop doesn't happen fast but its already happening.
