uncle Sammy; the boat is sinking, the captain himself is the person to blame.
for how long you gonna make crapes and sell them wrapping with a sparkling wrapping paper (the well renowned unnecessarily high priced display with the cheaply made logic board).
theirs still time, get your s*** together and make something worth of the money you are taking from us

We do know what it is. We have just evolved beyond them.

You sure do have high hopes don't you? You should also know that Apple ADDS to samsung's revenues due to them manufacturing some of the components used in iPhones ;) should Apple decide to go exclusively with TSMC you will see samsung's future darken a bit. But don't worry, rumour has it Apple will still support Samsung though AMOLED displays lol
Considering the lowered profits, i think it's fair to say that samsung's memory and chips business are doing amazing while high margin products such as tv, mobile, appliances are down.
Congrats to Samsung!! i like s6 edge although SD & Removable battery is a plus.
my guess their profit will increase in 2016 as the rumor says S7 will have SD option & waterproof.

Huge market though. Samsung was hunting for izombies there , and they don't know what SD support or removable battery is.
Of course Note 5 couldn't be hit in EU. No matter how great it is.
Samsung knew that US propaganda will start bashing the lack of the removable back. The same way US propaganda was bashing the removable back before:):) saying they are not important features at all.
And that the US propaganda to stop Note 5's sale would make huge effort to promote how IMPORTANT features SD and removable battery were.:)
It calls aikido. Using the power of the enemy to defeat it.

considering the stock clearance of s6 and s6 edge , don't think they did good for samsung
This drop in profit just a drop in the ocean for Samsung. No worries. They should be able to over take Apple in 2016!
Phones are only a small part of the whole Samsung business... just saying.
Flat to negative performance by Samesung. During 2015 they flooded the market (as usual) with a new model every week. I suspect that very few of their sales came from the S6/S6 Edge/S6 Edge Plus/Note 5.

But also about the future. Right?
Kudos to Samsung, that manage with the profit, but not saving from R&D and investment in new tech.
Not only in pink and gold colors like some 'posh' company.
And besides, even without Note 5 in EU and globally.
They are rising back. Though it is small rise, better than nothing.
Good job to them. Before anyone goes bashing them, remember people: this is the business world; it's all about the profit. They don't give a care about much else.
Stagnant growth. Samsung's 2015 lineup, albeit with premium design, lacked the perception of superiority . It wasn't so much the omission of MicroSD or the battery that doomed sales, it was the general perception that these phones were inferior and "lacking" the core android benefit. Hopefully Samsung rectifies the S7 line, which should translate to stronger sales in Q2 2016 and beyond.
