Oh goodness. Yes, do release more devices that don't meet what the customer wants and that do not have the amazing price/specs ratio that made Xiaomi and others gain so much traction.
They need a streamlined, comprehensive and competitive line-up.
J2: Quad-core, HD 4.7'' Amoled
J4: Octa-core (SD429-like), HD 5'' Amoled
J6: Octa-core (SD636-like), FHD+ 5.7'' Amoled
A4: Octa-core (Exynos 7885), FHD 5" Amoled
A6: Octa-core (SD660-like), FHD+ 5.3" Amoled
A8: Octa-core (SD710-like), FHD+ 6" Amoled
Now that would be a nice line-up wouldn't it? Also, give clear info about software support:
J Series: 1 major update, Quarterly security updates 2 years
A: 2 Major updates, Monthly security updates 3 years
S: 3 Major updates, Monthly for 3 + Quarterly for 1
Note: 3/4 Major updates, monthly for 4 + maybe quarterly for 1

The death of other brands means monopoly. If Xiaomi or Huawei monopolized the smartphone market they can increase price however they want, make phone however they want (more notches, no ear jack, no sd slot) and you cant do anything about it. You cant buy other brand too since they are dead/dying and you hate them all. So, is that what you want?
OMG, please don't go back to these old shady practices. Software support is only average from both companies nowadays. I can't think about better SW support with a bigger lineup.
Samsung and LG: Just concentrate on offering good enough products with the required bands to work on most countries.

Anonymous, 18 Jul 2018Samsung became too greedy, they used to be a cool. Reason i'm going with OnePlusHow is € 500 for an S9 greedy? OnePlus is mich greedier with their Price creeping up and their 6 being worse than an S9 for the same money.
Terrible strategy, they are spending so much money on advertisement. Samsung is doing ads for J series in India. Instead that money should be used for giving better specs to the customer. Just give adverts for top end.
Learn from Xiaomi/Honer no ads, just better devices and customers are coming back to next purchase as well.
LOL I thought they already did this. Let‘s prepare for another season of „a new day, a new Samsung phone“
Unfortunately, it's hard for them to undercut Xiaomi without incurring losses. The latter's profit margins are razor thin, their production costs are much cheaper, they have little to no advertising - yeah that's a tough ask.
They’re shooting the self. Samsung and LG doing the same mastike as Nokia in the bast to many mid range or low end android phones doesn’t means better sell.
Shamesung already spamming us with new phone every other weak but LG are very weak in the midrange. The Q7 is way overpriced same with their low end K series. They need to make more attractive midrange to upper-midrange phones and price them aggressively.
Hehe. All the top togs are scared of the Chinese competition which is slowly taking over the lead. It's not long before brands like Huawei & OnePlus take over. :D
LG has gone complete crazy. Releasing Q7 at such a high price. Q7 costs R5999 which is approximately equal to $450 and INR31000!!
Samsung has done so much damage to its A series that it is beyond repairable now. Samsung actually downgraded their A series this year!!
I don't even care about samsung but I would love to see LG learn from their mistakes.
[deleted post]Are you OK?......say no to drugs.
LG and samsung has low cost offerings?
GSMAREANA you need to Recheck the market before make any statement regarding prices!
One thing LG and sammycrappy didnt have is consideration for their costumers and then people who buy a mid range or high wnd from them see other people buy the almost same thing for half the price from Xiaomi or other chinese company and do the same as the moment came.
I love LG, always support them and buy their things but i see a little miss when it came to ads and publicity on the road, i didnt see them, and is one thing sammycrappy jave too much, waste of cardboards trying to sell their sh*t.
And...looks like that work so, LG need to be more competitive in price and do more ads.
As for sammy or crapple, i didnt care, both can go to h€LL with their overpriced junk.
Samsung became too greedy, they used to be a cool. Reason i'm going with OnePlus
If... Samsung or LG brings out something as same as Xiaomi or Huawei and in same cost then I am sure they will bring back their old Glory of Sales again...
Samsung's "A" series are seriously overpriced, most Samsung users will opt for a former flagship "S" series that only costs almost the same with those newly released "A" phones.
With more overpriced midrange phones they will just go down even more.
lol these chinese phone are trying their best to take over all the market well it was about time that sammy and lg step up they better come up with something way better that what there've been releasing cause these people are even trying to enter the korean market
