potato4k, 11 Sep 2020So Samsung making more than double for their margin and you guys are happy? I guess Samsung is... moreU d realise Iphones cost even less to make and make more profit than Samsung devices and others?
Apple are the worst at it
U samsung haters are just mad
That modem price.. No wonder snapdragon don't want to integrate it into the processor and separate it.. They make more profit with that..
potato4k, 11 Sep 2020So Samsung making more than double for their margin and you guys are happy? I guess Samsung is... morePure lack of knowledge. $550 only goes to the Build of Materials. Remember there's R&D(Little improvements and breakthrough that cost a lot), MARKETING, different taxes on every country, Transportation fee, salaries of employees, software developers, customer service, retailers profit.... And more... I think they earn about $150-250 per phone
Never thought Snapdragon 865+ anc 5G Modem cost a lot. It thought it will be the Camera and Display but I'm wrong.
potato4k, 11 Sep 2020So Samsung making more than double for their margin and you guys are happy? I guess Samsung is... moreWell, the difference between final price and production cost does not go entirely to samsung, dumb ass, there is a lot of things interveninig in the cost before reaching the consumer, transport, importing fees, import taxes, in country transport, local and federal taxes, distribution costs and retailers profit, and consumer taxes, or what did you believe? That the difference between the somewaht 550.00 and the final cost of 1300.00 goees directly into samsung's pocket? Do people line outside the factories to directly pick the devices up? Think, before babbling ignorant idiocies
A joke that Samsung actually earns more devices per sold than its closest competitors, Apple and Huawei.
Others like Xiaomi only earns 5% profit per device sold (in China).
Android.Master, 11 Sep 2020 This is why all those flagships available at 500$ last year jumped to 800-1000$.
Not only is... moreMediatek Dimensity offers good performance only on paper.
It actually throttles quickly under sustained load.
Dimensity 1000 Redmi K30 Ultra's Antutu score drops by a lot (final score was like 440k). Putting aside a SD865 Realme X50, the Realme retained a higher score (I forgot by how much). Comparison is in Youtube.
Mediatek chips tend to have weaker ISP and cannot be rooted otherwise may be bricked.
And remember Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G also comes with Exynos, and their in-house chips are cheaper. Samsung just profits a lot.
Even Apple does not gain as much from iPhone sales.
Izzie, 10 Sep 2020Excellent profit margins on these phones. Really?! Beware the costs mentioned here are only manufacturing and packaging costs.
R&D, supply chain costs are not included.
RC255, 11 Sep 2020Commendable? Really? Maybe they should run a charity. That might make you happy.
So Samsung making more than double for their margin and you guys are happy? I guess Samsung is right for using plastic (cheaper) for the Note 20 and charging more but no accessories for the Fold 2. You guys are happy giving more money to Samsung. Hilarious.
Samsung mobile is doing excellent, as it is. It just needs to keep innovating in the camera department. Their OLEDs and customer experience is already great. They need to ensure that they maintain the market lead. The new A and M line seems quite promising.
Samsung needs to hire people from Apple's SoC (actually processor) division. The Exynos tram downsizing the Mongoose core team was an excellent decision. But Samsung needs former members of the Apple Team
if made as SBC (CPU + memory ROM RAM + connectivity like Raspberry Pi), it would likely cost less than $200.
Izzie, 10 Sep 2020Excellent profit margins on these phones. Imagine to CrapWei selling their waste in €1,400 stonks up :))
Anonymous, 11 Sep 2020$150 just for processor and X55 modem, that should stop those people who always complain why S... more This is why all those flagships available at 500$ last year jumped to 800-1000$.
Not only is the X55 modem expensive but it also causes more battery drain.
No wonder Mediatek Dimensity is available at cheap price and offers throttle free performance with battery savings.
$150 just for processor and X55 modem, that should stop those people who always complain why SD 865 phone is so expensive.
