Welldone Samsung. Hope increasing the profit for the next time...Congrats!

For them, getting charged more for a product that costs much less to produce is something to be proud of. They don't care how much it costs and how much profit the company reaps off of them by selling cheaper product at a higher price. They are a unique breed who like and are proud of getting overcharged, which in turn makes the company of their worship richer than other companies even though they sell less.

& i believe in that amount you must have at least got two different phones from Samsung.
Good news for customers because increasing number sales but ddecreasing in profit means there is little margins and products are getting cheaper.

On the contrary, profit and sales have been exploding since then. I wonder who has been eating up or the "so called unsold phones made by Samsung". Keep trying, hard.
Jason, 29 Apr 2014Followed by S4, now S5 sales is dipping? Thanks to the removal of FM radio and uninspiring design.Yeah! But still they manage to outsell the iphone 5s

Rather than showing how brainwashed u are, pLease learn about how corporate accounting works and what audited numbers mean.
The S5 would've had better sales if
A. They didn't force KNOX onto ppl that didn't want it in the first place.
B. Let the customers decide what bloat they would like on their phone. Come on, advertising a phone as a 16gb when it only had about 9.5gb available to the owner? wtf Samsung.
Srsly, they just need to release a vanilla version to all of their phones.
"...Samsung attributed the second straight fall of quarterly profit to a weakness in the market for flat-screen panels .."
so LG BEATS SAMSUNG IN THIS DEPARTMENT!

Note 3 was just a few months ago. Their flagship S5 looks the same as S4 with minimal upgrades. You really think they saved everything on a Note 4? seriously?

Jitsu, 29 Apr 2014Yeah. Playing your music from phone speaker is truly a audiophile experience.
Get over it. ... moreagree here .. rarely i do see people listening to music in speakers ..
but again HTC got better speakers and have bragging rights

Get over it. That's targeted at teens who have no idea about sound quality. Despite the better speakers, the DAC performs worse than samsung ones. S series have a clear and quite good sound quality on the line out.
Put it short - Samsung thought that music should be flawless, but not played through the speakers, since that's not the smartphone intention. I agree.
Its more than federal reserve of my country.. Pakistan :) Way to go Samsung...:)

Need Samsung to produce better high end smartphones. As at now, all the high end smartphones does not have much different, just a bit of upgrading, nothing outstanding. Would want to see the Galaxy Note 4 have better things to offer.
I love Samsung, but for me HTC offer everything I want - the dual front mounted speakers and Beats Audio are more than just a gimmick, they offer an incredible experience that no other phone can match. I would be seriously torn if Samsung also took this approach.
With regard to the dip in profit, Samsung are spending millions on research, but I reckon they're hitting the same wall Apple have hit for the last two years: their phone is not sufficiently different from the previous generation, so people are not bothering to spend a fortune getting out of contract or buying the new phone outright. This affects Apple, Samsung and now HTC with the One M8 - no way I'm buying out of my contract to get a slightly more powerful version of the same phone with no realistic differences. (No matter how awesome the new One is.)
