Samsung did reveal their numbers in their Webcast, which they did not do for the last couple of years. 90Mio Phones shipped of which approx. 85% Smartphones. (8Mio Tablets)
Julliard, 26 Jan 2017Oh yeah, I heard about that like since 2014! Chinese phone on the rise. Blablablabla...Take ov... more" EuropeÂ’s largest five markets, Huawei has emerged as the third largest smartphone brand behind Samsung and Apple, growing 7.4% year-on-year to account for 12.5% of smartphone sales in the three months ending May 2016. In Italy and Spain, HuaweiÂ’s strongest EU markets, the company now accounts for nearly 21% of sales, with the P8 Lite remaining one the best-selling phones during the recent period. These two markets have also witnessed SamsungÂ’s largest year-on-year declines, down 7.6 percentage points in Italy and 5.6 percentage points in Spain."
Julliard, 26 Jan 2017Oh yeah, I heard about that like since 2014! Chinese phone on the rise. Blablablabla...Take ov... moreActually lot happened already, Huawei become number one phone company in my country and in few other countries too, note to you, Samsung has been number one by very big margin for years where i live, and last year Huawei crushed Samsung in just one year.
Samsung is going to have very difficult times, huawei and other chinese companies can basicly offer same product for masses a lot cheaper, it really start to show.
It's also shows in these Samsung q results, Samsung sold whopping 90 million phones and yet their profit from mobile segment is only 2.5 billion. 2014 january it was 5.3 billion. Shows how much the flagship sales have dropped. and the reason is exactly what i just said. Huawei and other chinese companies are getting many potential galaxy sales these days.
AnonD-625786, 25 Jan 2017Sure, Samsung is doing fine, but many other companies are on the rise. Huawei's sales are grow... moreOh yeah, I heard about that like since 2014! Chinese phone on the rise. Blablablabla...Take over Samsung soon. Blablabla...Well, its 2017 and nothing happened.
Not surprised.Many people bought the J series since they sell like cupcakes in India,China,Europe.And don't forget so many people buy them so they can easily sell them.I mean basically in cheap markets you can only buy iphones and samsungs ones.Nobody sells old used Xiaomi or Asus or Huawei phones.
Plus 30% of this amount goes to S series.They are literally owned by anyone with a bit bigger budget.
F.H.-15, 25 Jan 2017So, may be the amount of Samsung Galaxy Note-7 are listed in the '90 millions chart',and so ma... moreApproximately Only 1.5 milliom Note 7s were sold. So even then that makes it 88.5 million devices sold for Samsung.
Julliard, 25 Jan 2017Well, all the haters had gone quiet. Anyone else had sold 90 million smartphones other than Sa... moreSamsung sellling the most phones on the planet is nothing really new. It's been like this for the past 5 years, as we all know Samsung also relies on selling low end phones. So next year, chances are Samsung will also be at the top.
Sure, Samsung is doing fine, but many other companies are on the rise. Huawei's sales are growing crazy worldwide, and not to mention the return of Nokia, which might take some of Samsung's and Huawei's sales, as well. 2017 is going to be interesting.
Imperator Neubaticus, 25 Jan 2017You have to take into account the entire experience with the product. In terms of reliability,... moreAh, now that makes sense. Thanks for the explaining like a human being.
Also economics/consumerism is my weak point, failed them in school :P
Anyways, good day.
Thanks to strong sales and supply chain of samsung.product and services are available at distant and remote locations around the planet long range of products for class to mass there is a phone for everyone in samsung portfolio you may not get value for money products in samsung but you will get durable products I was note 3 user and then I moved to vivo v3 max which is also excellent mobile but I seriously missed amoled display and camera performance
In my country people just buy Samsung, people aren't aware of quality or things like that (I don't say Samsung doesn't have quality but vice versa) so just a very small percent are professional and aware of the product they buy, that's why Samsung salea won't fall soon and that's why Chinese low quality phones are rising.
AnonD-442017, 25 Jan 2017I don't understand your point, what has the number of sales go to do with the quality of a pro... moreNumber of sales got nothing to do with quality. This report is about profit and money Samsung made. You know. Samsung showed that they made big money. Thats all.
AnonD-442017, 25 Jan 2017I don't understand your point, what has the number of sales go to do with the quality of a pro... moreYou have to take into account the entire experience with the product. In terms of reliability, brand value, after sales, customer support, availability, etc, one plus is no match for oems like apple. And the consumer pays for all of that, not just the smartphone. You have to understand how economics and consumerism work.
Julliard, 25 Jan 2017Well, all the haters had gone quiet. Anyone else had sold 90 million smartphones other than Sa... moreI don't understand your point, what has the number of sales go to do with the quality of a product?
iPhone 7 Sold much much more than OnePlus 3T yet I genuinely believe the OP3T is the better phone.
It's all about who entered the smartphone game first and therefore gained brand recognition and also marketing that mostly determines sales.
Well, all the haters had gone quiet. Anyone else had sold 90 million smartphones other than Samsung? I guess not.
So, may be the amount of Samsung Galaxy Note-7 are listed in the '90 millions chart',and so may be the number is so high for note-7
