ProJames, 06 Apr 2018Demand has sharply increased. This is simple offer and demand rules. It's called capitalismNope, it's called Economy. Capitalism is for any sake to sell something or provide service for profit.
What Samsung does is so capital intensive otherwise competitors would be falling over themselves for a share in those profits.

As far as their NAND memory, next generation fabrication in mobile processor, recently they started focus on camera tech as well (ISOCELL sensors). Their accessories such as wireless charger pads, Dex station, Gear S3 Tizen OS watch.... The list probably endless. Innovation in design doesn't mean only UI or physical form factors. Their improved TouchWiz is really cool addition to their ever improving expertise in software.

Innovation by definition is a new idea that nobody else had before. Can't think of one that Samsung came up with. Maybe curved screen... Mobile phone companies have been copying each other like there is no(tch) tomorrow. Don't get me wrong I have Samsung (s7) myself and I'm happy with it but let's call things what they are.
ProJames, 06 Apr 2018Demand has sharply increased. This is simple offer and demand rules. It's called capitalismWith your idealistic view of capitalism you sound like you never worked for a big for profit corporation anywhere north of middle management level... Or you just read too many books on principles of capitalism and actually never seen how it works on a big scale on the inside and in practice. Manipulation and shoddy practices is a norm these days...it's profit first - and see how much we can getaway with attitude.
There are a lot of business experts in the comment section here. Lol.
thedo, 06 Apr 2018hahaha a sad day for Xiaomi, Hauwei, Apple, Sony, and anti-Smamsun fanboys. Why? Even stock holders thinks this is bad and that's why stock is down. They just manipulated the numbers by early S9 release.

There is something called "commercial advertising" which prime purpose is to create false needs for people to fulfill. Companies invest more in advertising than in R&D itself. Why? Because advertising works. People are being brainwashed into buying their phones and they don't even know it. So, companies force people to buy, but they do it in a very subtle way.
our crap gets more expensive and they line their pockets.
eat the rich.

part of me think that some deserve (or want) to be screwed. Is it really so difficult to see that consumers loose out on this? It's an illusion of choice (not buying etc.) as you gonna buy something sooner or later and you gonna get screwed sooner or later... because people like you accept this nonsense.

Samsung deserves much more for their innovation! Hope they start optimise their mobile phone prices to make it even more affordable for all!
Imperator Neubaticus, 06 Apr 2018Well haters gonna hate but sammy continues to rake. you are right mate
Samsung Mobile deserves all the success that they get.
Unlike iPhone it didn't abandon expandable storage, the headphone jack, dual sim, water proofing etc etc for greed and money. Also they throw in an AKG Headphone along with a fast charger in the box itself.
I think one gets a lot for the money. I know they could be cheaper. I guess they will make a price correction once some of the competition dies (or after a few weeks of launch).
I hope Samsung doesn't stop listening to their customers.

A lot of that "technology" is as cheap as beans mate. Innovation can potentially be expensive but arguably there is little of that recently. If you're fine being screwed it's up to you but I imagine a lot of people prefer not.

Given the amount of technology squashed into a pocketable device I have no issue with the prices... People also have the option of waiting for the price to drop.
