Anders, 12 Aug 2019Samsung's best selling phone was the A50. Read; people like headphone jacks, micro SD support ... morenope, samsung never took a note. they just saw the success of chinese phone and they copy it. bezelless design with notch and big battery
Johan, 13 Aug 2019This is no wonder, Samsung has always been more serious about European market than Apple. In m... moreNot exactly true. From 2007 to about 2012/2013Samsung was second to Apple in smartphone sales in Europe
Carol, 13 Aug 2019For sure you never touched a Nokia device. It's metal and it's cheapper, ups.... Also never to... moreNokia does make well built smartphones... but they aren't the best. In some areas such as software and build quality, yes, but other areas such as cameras and SoC... not so much. Don't even get me started about the Nokia 9 Pureview. Plagued with horrible fingerprint sensor issues and somewhat interesting yet slightly disappointing cameras. Could you also explain how you think Samsung is more of a "privacy killer" than a Nokia? Yet they still have the same software?? Please elaborate. And there's no need to imply stupidity here... again, completely unnecessary to say things like "of course here i mean people who actually have some brain under the hood"... very childish. Once again, I completely respect your opinion to dislike Samsung, but at this point you're just bashing, bashing and bashing... let's just go our seperate ways man, jeez.
A50 user, 13 Aug 2019Lol I own A50, does everything that I want for 270$: -Watching videos on the cool sAMOLED -G... moreI wasn't addressing to the avarage joe who's only purpose is instagram and pubg....i was actually addressing to people that know they need to set up their device and this garbage is no fun to set, neither to use. But hey you have fun there, pubg for the world...
This is no wonder, Samsung has always been more serious about European market than Apple. In many European countries you still can't even use Siri in local language. There are no local Apple offices etc.
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2019What are you even talking about? "cheap made plastiky device with so much bloatware" Ha, pleas... moreFor sure you never touched a Nokia device. It's metal and it's cheapper, ups.... Also never touched an pure android device. It has no crapp installed all over, ups again. It is actually called for, because people need to wake up. Android is already a privacy killer, samesung is the top of the cherry. And as you can read among the mass of ignorants you can easily see all those "apps" are not there for the fans, so why spend 3 hours disabling anything one does not need, plus another to actually set the device as you wants (of course here i mean people who actually have some brain under the hood) when there are way better devices with way better software? Just beats me.
Jim, 13 Aug 2019Sure... so you bought a true Resmi fake phone! Because the Redmi Note 5 Pro like the Redmi N... moreI don't know about redmi note 5 pro, but redmi note 4 ain't rovk solid...actually its one of the worst redmi build ever for me. They are build with metal, but i guess its a thin metal. Redmi note 3 is better in terms of build and that still is not rock solid at all. They are one of the most fragile phone ever during the same period when compared to others phone
Carol, 12 Aug 2019Well, being forced down the people's throats everywhere you look, is no wander this garbage se... moreLol I own A50, does everything that I want for 270$:
-Watching videos on the cool sAMOLED
-Gaming is smooth (even PUBG)
-Smooth system performance+ cool features
-Under display fingerprint to show off to my friends (works fast for me)
-Long lasting battery life
-Low SAR so doesn't harm your health
So obviously A50 is the best seller, gives the typical user all what he wants
Jim, 13 Aug 2019Sure... so you bought a true Resmi fake phone! Because the Redmi Note 5 Pro like the Redmi N... moreRedmi note 4 maybe metal build...but it's one of the weakest phone from xiaomi in terms of build quality. One drop and the phone will never be the same. I witness it too many times as its one of yhe most popular phone at the time
Apple sucks in Europe !! People wake up! Prices too high that are not justified. Apple phone just doesn't deserve that much money Go to Hell Apple! RIP
In which countries are Xiaomi popular? Here in the UK they're pretty much nonexistant.
Carol, 12 Aug 2019Well, being forced down the people's throats everywhere you look, is no wander this garbage se... moreAgreed, A50 only looks good at first glance, but it's very a weak phone - plastic, with poor camera, overrated oneui and terrible loudspeaker.
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2019Where is xiaopi mi 9t? It's the best midrange out thereI don't think the fragmented release helped.
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2019You are right, I bought Resmi note 5 pro, honest the worst buit phone in it's price point, ext... moreSure... so you bought a true Resmi fake phone! Because the Redmi Note 5 Pro like the Redmi Note 4 is built in aluminium and a rock, very solid.
Xiaomi did a mistake with the glasstic Redmi Note 7 despite if its having a good sales. But they are fixing the frame to compensate the softer back in next model as they and their next phones already were reinforced.

Samsung take Note ;-)
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2019"comparable UI's that have more bloatware than Samsung" suggest somehuawei - not sure about their newer phones but I watched a video about the p20 pro, had noticeable bloatware on it with games or apps that were preinstalled such as puzzle pets, booking.com, dragon mania, ect. I could provide you w/ a link to the video if you like.
blu - bloatware apps such as opera browser and nextradio, ect... you could probably find more bloatware for blu phones though (blu g9 and blu vivo XI plus)
alcatel - some preloaded apps such as a game called kingdoms, other apps like officesuite, dragon mania and (again), whatsapp, ect. (alcatel 3l)
Carol, 12 Aug 2019Well, being forced down the people's throats everywhere you look, is no wander this garbage se... moreWhat are you even talking about? "cheap made plastiky device with so much bloatware" Ha, please don't tell me you were expecting a glass back with metal edges on a BUDGET phone. As for bloatware, you can disable most of their pre-loaded apps, not to mention there are comparable UI's that have more bloatware than Samsung, so that's an invalid point. You can have a negative view about Samsung, but when you make illogical points and say stuff like "I really don't understand how people can even accept to use such crappy devices like samesung", it's completely uncalled for.
I believe Apple will always dominate the United States though. Good to see them falter everywhere else.
People can call me an Apple hater but one of my favorite products from them is the MacBook Air. I just don't like iOS. I like Apple computers. I don't like Apple's mobile devices and overrated ecosystem.
Good for Samsung. Still not a fan of them. I'll stick to Pixel for as long as my Pixel 3 continues to work
