if you realy need a good example of a decline look no further than Blackberry, Ericson, Motorola, siemens,and not forgetting the Finnish Giants NOKIA..
the same fate will befall Samsung, Sony, ect ect
Primark, 14 Oct 2013To apple loyalist, iphone 5c is made of premium plastic... LOLLOL!
AnonD-179946, 14 Oct 2013once you buy a premium product like the galaxy s3 or the iphone 5, consumers will beleive that... moreMost of what you say is true, but I think 2015 is a bit soon (absent the US government screwing up the global credit market).
There are still advances in tech infrastructire across most of the world's emerging economies which have yet to take place (4g). One of them is huge - India.
AnonD-179946, 14 Oct 2013thia is whAT happens when you over saturate the market for many varients of the same flagship ... moreNo, that's what happens when 2 of the top 5 smartphone manufacturers are based out of the same country with a small population and a very advanced mobile infrastructure (first country to rollout LTE-A nationwide? - S. Korea).
peterinspires, 14 Oct 2013Every manufacturer using andriod with same user interferance, people realised this which ever ... moreThat's nonsense. Maybe you should actually go out to a retail phone shop and take a look at the Samsungs, LGs, HTCs, Acers and Lenovos, then come back and tell me they're all the same. I nominate you for the clueless comment of the day award.
once you buy a premium product like the galaxy s3 or the iphone 5, consumers will beleive that they have what they need from a smartphone.. what more can smarthphone do .. you want a better camera ?? What are you ?? a Journalist photographer ?? you want more cores , what are you ?? A gamer, you want better video recorder ?? what are you a Movie maker..these firms are gonna run out of things to put in a smarthpone..
I make this prediction ,, by 2015 smartphone sales will plummit!!!
I remember a friend of mine saying more than a year ago IPhone is all about the premium feeling not cheap like other phones made of plastic, then comes along IPhone 5c, haven't heard him say plastic is cheap since then LOL.
Johnny, 14 Oct 2013Seriously? What's the 5C made of, again?To apple loyalist, iphone 5c is made of premium plastic... LOL
Every manufacturer using andriod with same user interferance, people realised this which ever company use choose and what ever model you choose the same user interferance, even new os updates are not giving new user interferqnce, people generally expects when a new os or an update arrives they want to see new user interferance.
thia is whAT happens when you over saturate the market for many varients of the same flagship just look samsung s4's..
apple will reign supreme.. they are not in the crap plastic market
Smartphone in south korea will probably decline but for a small percent only.
