The truth behind the SE
Nokia, LG and Samsung unit prices are lover than SE. SE Q4 2008 unit price is 129$. The almost phones sold by Nokia, Samsung and LG are around 50-100$.
Forms the beginning to now Im only using SE. SE phones are that much of good and great designs.
Dont believe third party articles like these.
Ill wait for IDE or ABI research report.
No other designs like SE
No other picture quality like SE
No other sound quality like SE
Highest Unit price valued mobile maker
No third class phones from SE
I still believe SE and upcoming models like Hikaru & Kokura.
nokia sold more phones because they keep on coming with low end mobile phones...they should not only counting on how many units they sold, but rather the profit they come up with...just my two cents...x0
Phone Addict, 21 Jan 2009Oh and another reason LG, Nokia, and Samsung are at the top is because they sell phones for EV... moreThe problem with sonyericson is there low end phone sucks, they need to improve on that, how can you be a leader when your mass products are not good..
Totalmente de acuerdo con sus comentarios, para mi no pintaba LG hasta que empezo con Shine, despues el Venus y luego aun avalancha: Secret, Cookie, viewty y el 700 (que no recuerdo como se llama) y lo mas interesante: Muchos Agotamientos!!!!!!!
Si que me impresiona LG, bueno, samsung andaba igual, sin mucho que llamara la atencion, hay algunos buenos modelos en el mercado mexicano, pero no tantos con de LG.
Sigamos de cercas este interesante comportamiento!
Reality Check, 21 Jan 2009Should the lousy 4th & 5th manufacturers stop whatever they are doing to save the planet furth... moreWhy should people's choice be limited? If you simply want to kill all others not in the top 5, there would be no iphone or HTC, which would not "force" the almighty brand(s) to offer more touchscreen handsets...
Would be extremely terrible if the world only gets Toyota Ford and GM cars. (Yes, I'm a Honda fan)
Erick , 21 Jan 2009The market presents challenges for all the manufacturers. One thing which all manufacturers wi... moreWhen these people only count on "sales volume", focusing on mid/low end handsets would get the companies to the top easily.
Think about the almighty powerful HTC with Smartphones only, when will it ever get to the top 5? Would your parents / grandparents ever use one? Or would you like to see your kids carrying a US$400 "minicomputer" around...just so they can lose them (or be stolen in some places) easily?
It is really quite logical. The phone type that sold the most in 2008 was the touchscreen typpe Apple had 2, Lg had many, Samsung had many, Nokia had only 1 SEhad only 1 the math is quite simple. Nokia were able to stay ahead due to brand loyalty and phones like n95 8gb, n78, n96 which were high end all in one devices
Phone Addict, 21 Jan 2009Oh and another reason LG, Nokia, and Samsung are at the top is because they sell phones for EV... moreI think the success of some of these companies come from the fact they heavily subsidize network service providers to offer "$0" handsets with service.
My other guess is they probably also pay more commission to the front line sales, so the sales help to "promote" their handsets.
Plus, these days where people usually change handsets every 6 months (if not less), quality doesn't mean much anymore...people buy the (bad) phones, don't like them, then simply resell them.
But the sales $ and volume already count into the initial sales.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2009Ford sells much more than Cadillac or Bentley but of course Bentley and Cadillac are far bette... moreCorrect me if I'm wrong, I thought X1 wasn't really made by SE...rather being OEM by HTC or something.
Ahhh well SE that willl be a sad ending.....I loved SE phones right from the beggining and i own 4 of them! still working good..
My next phone is definatly a NOKIA!!!!!
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2009Ford sells much more than Cadillac or Bentley but of course Bentley and Cadillac are far bette... moreUnfortunately..SE now on serious problems..their innovative portfolio still can't help their financial,their xperia development just waste their money...congrats lg,,
USA_Arrogance in ya , 21 Jan 2009SE will fall apart. Even on the upcomming MWC in Barcelona SE won't have anything new to show ... moreFord sells much more than Cadillac or Bentley but of course Bentley and Cadillac are far better than Ford. that means that SE are the best. just compare SE X1 with any LG or Samsung or Nokia phone ??!! SE X1 kills all of them
good job lg, never had an lg phone but thats not bad in sales. companies have to bring this prices down a little bit.
im nt at all surprised by the fact that samsung and lg are making drastic improvement in selling their mobile phones. manufacturers frm Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia & China will surprise us more in future i believe cos dy got cheap labor advantage & tech knowledge as well. initially dy wont be able to take da top spot bt gradually dy will outperform nokia, se, moto n odas. i tnk companies wont only focus on boostin sellin units rather dy will incline more to earnin profits by reducin costs n sellin mid-end & high-end phones. i believe se has got more revolutionary phones 2 offer in da future if dy really invest heavily since i've got serious respect 4 Sony as da champion in electronics. so as lng se is ther in da mkt we da customers can only be benefited as da competition will be fierce n nokia, samsung, moto n lg hav 2 offer better phones 4 us. thus i pray se stays in da mkt 4 many yrs 2 com changin deir mktin n strategic policies wid ericsson. tnx.
great i love lg got lg viewty great fone better then any other touch screen fone hahah lg rule 08
All credit goes to their marketing team and strategies?
otherwise technology wise they behind the motorola and sony.
grimjow, 21 Jan 2009Where is iPhone? I bet they only sold about 2 million units just like the camera they use with... moreApple only has 1 phone, and that is the iphone, and it is a smartphone. LG, Nokia and Samsung are selling different kinds of phones, so it would not make sense for you to compare iphone sales versus total sales of all phones from LG, Samsung and Nokia. But for sure, iphone sold the most, if not one of the most sold smartphones.
