AnonD-78939, 08 Jun 2013Lol S4 has "S-lag" complaint and it is bloated with skin.
No wonder why sales are down.Those are dumb users.
Lag has been a lie since Jellybean butter smooth
of 4.1, yet jelalous windows phone users try and bring lag into it still.
Get Root access and install a custom ROM and kernel.
They shouldn't be using a smart phone if they can't do the basics.

Anonymous, 08 Jun 2013the article clearly says due to slowdown of galaxy s4 sales well that's absolutely not true be... moreMajority of iPhone sales come from online store and Apple store and not to forget retailers bestbuy etc.
Sales of s4 were calculated only in carrier stores.
iPhone 5 is still number one selling device
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the hottest seller right now.
In a few weeks time, they'll be reporting that the Galaxy S4 is selling beyond expectations.
Don't trust the media.
Samsung can't stand with s4. Coz it got the same design as s3 wit some new features and bigger screen. And some negative issues like overheating, memory problem(though they promised to solve).
It got large amount of sale just because of it's fame. Bt now coin had showed its opposite side.
On your face Samsung.
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2013What BS Samsung GS4 is outsellig every other phone right now and that's a fact not a rumour That what you think. But unfortunately not true cause HTC one, Xperia z, Nexus 4 and Lg optimus g pro from Android side start kicking Samsung from there game plus Iphone 5 and Nokia Lumia 920.
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2013the article clearly says due to slowdown of galaxy s4 sales well that's absolutely not true be... moreOutselling the 9month old iPhone is not a big defeat if it was true. Infortunately, this is another incomplete data just like GS4 selling 10millions only shipped but not to the end users that is now causing too much supply over demand. Before we know it, the iPhone is still outselling any other phones because the APPLE store sales was never taken into the account. To this day, I havnt seen hardly any GS4 OUT IN the wild to the customers hands like I did with the GS3.
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2013LOL. Good job on missing the entire point of the article (you and every other samsung fanboy h... morethe article clearly says due to slowdown of galaxy s4 sales well that's absolutely not true because the gs4 has been outselling iphone in US for awhile besides it has already sold millions worldwide
As pointed out already by others, the title of this new item is incorrect. It should read as "market cap/market capitalization".
There is no "marketing cap" in business lexicon.
S4 Mini has nothing to do with Samsung's S4 sales besides, Mini is made to those who don't like the big size of GS4. Maybe it's mainly because of the IP certified S4 Active. I don't really understand why Samsung made it and downgraded the specs like the camera which is very important to a lot! In the first place, Samsung should have thought about the phone's design before releasing it. If Active's design was applied to the current GS4 then maybe it should have been better coz Active was designed so much better than the ugly designed GS4. Imagine GS4 with Active's design being the one and only S4 out in the market with a 13MP camera, much better right? Even if the Mini doesn't come with the same design concept and IP certification its okay coz the units are only gonna be made for the people who don't wanna spend too much money on a flagship phone. Now if Apple is going to make that kind of program having the old phones exchanged and get discounted rates on the upcoming iPhones based on what I understood about the article then Samsung will somehow get affected by it. Another thing is the growing competition in the Android world, Many OEMs nowadays produce better looking phone than Samsung, Samsung only had other OEMs original ideas like Air Gesture which originally came from Sony as the Floating Touch found on the Xperias U and Sola, Dual shot camera from LG and the Smart Stay/Pause also came from LG with their Eye Tracking technology found on the G Pro that is why they sued Sammy for releasing the said technology found on the GS4. With Sony releasing the new monster devices in a couple of months from now and announcing it in the next few days (rumored devices Togari, Gaga and Honami) a lot are waiting eagerly to see what Sony can offer! Xperia Z still might have not been a bigger name than the over marketed GS4 but Sony did well with it and now that they're coming with a fight against Sammy with the new beasts coming out, Samsung should really now take it seriously. LG is coming with the rumored Optimus G2 and Nexus 5, Moto with the rumored X Phone that Google owns by the way and HTC with their new versions of One and the new Butterfly 2 coming the competition gets tougher and people are looking for alternatives just like what happened to the iPhone 4 with Samsung's GS2!
AnonD-153400, 07 Jun 2013Strange, most people i know (and i know a lot ofpeople) find the s4 to be an amazingly gorgeou... moreamazingly gorgeous device????? That words are deserves for Xperia Z, HTC One and iphone 5. And not everyone like these super amoled!
AnonD-130551, 08 Jun 2013I think the takeaway here is that stupid investors are stupid. Trees don't grow to the sky. Ex... moreYou're obviously not an investor. No one expects anything to keep going up. That's precisely why so many people bailed. They are reacting to the freshest information available and getting out while they are ahead. If they expected it to go up continuously, they would have stayed in the stock. I think the take away here is that most people here have no idea about trading and want to spin it to their own fanboy desires.
I think the takeaway here is that stupid investors are stupid. Trees don't grow to the sky. Expecting quarter after quarter of steady sales growth forever is unrealistic and only sets you up to be disappointed.
One reason I don't like watching Bloomberg. It's all about stocks going up and up and up.
Announcing a mini version doesn't mean the S4 is performing bad. Samsung sees the market that high-end big-sized phone has reached its peak.
The slow-down is affecting Samsung and it's affecting others too.
O noes Samsung is gonna go bankrupt real fast then, are you kidding me ? LMAO :)))))))
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2013What BS Samsung GS4 is outsellig every other phone right now and that's a fact not a rumour LOL. Good job on missing the entire point of the article (you and every other samsung fanboy here). No one is saying Samsung is going to stop selling lots of phones. Why don't you try reading (*gasp* might be hard for Samsung fanboys) a little extra on the topic.
