Still may be Samsung is getting more busy to make parts to apple .Actually apple is just assembler of parts not manufacturer of phone. What a shame for apple fans that their most important parts are made by Samsung .hahahaaaa...
Samsung and other android smartphone manufacurers are only one solution! Cut the vending price to 50%! Resulting price will be the fair price for a free buggy os like Android and cheap plastic smartphones!:)

Less interesting? Yet it sells more and more every year? :)
Does this chart to you shows iPhone is less interesting? http://static2.businessinsider.com/image/538c8b2c6bb3f7515321f675-960/2014_06_02_iphone.jpg
For me it shows iPhone is more popular than ever.
By the way after iOS8 iPhone is more interesting than ever before, even lot of android users admit that.
AnonD-271717, 07 Jun 2014don't forget ios getting much "hole" in its system, the iPhone are less interesting ... moreSamsung and Google, they are monopolist to be honest...
Apple is some way better than both of them..
Samsung and Google have strong clashes with even MS for their Windows Phone and have forced the OEMs not to make Dual Boot phones because they are afraid WP will sell more than Android also people prefer it over Android only those who have used WP.
Another blunder they did with WP is that Samsung made WP Ativ SE but its not available neither have you seen its Advertisement its just because Samsung don't want the Windows to spread further also Samsung is promoting their own OS Tizen.
They even have done a blunder with Android phones and making the Galaxy series even more shittier to flop Android and less sale of Galaxy S5 is just because of that so Samsung is going to sink just because of their own.
Their only innovative phone was Galaxy S3 which is almost the same as Galaxy S5..Samsung please grow up

... moredon't forget ios getting much "hole" in its system, the iPhone are less interesting these days, iOS7 are heavy and laggy (atleast in i4), the security are less secure in iOS 7 and 8 :v
don't buy the brand but buy the product with guaranteed company/brand
I think Samsung has made too many blunders, and even some users are fed up with their very low ethics. Lying in court, lying to customers. No wonder tons of people are shifting to LG, who seem to be able to conduct business fairly scandal free.
Goliath, 06 Jun 2014Really?
In anticipation of iphone6...
What about the other great phones, such as LG G3, xper... moreI think that GSMarena may be right as cautious buyers will not want to commit especially with the iPhone6, breaking all its "principles" and going for a larger "more than one hand operator" device
That aside the IP will only add what we already know
Sapphire protection and a larger screen and at most 3 "non essential" phone features
An earlier observation from another GSMARENA artivle is that the the LG G3 outsold the S5 in opening sale by a 3 to 1 factor in its homeland Korea
Ignoring the QHD QUAD HD display the LG G3 is a tweaked LG G2
ALL LG have done is RE-INCLUDED MEMORY EXPANSION & REMOVABLE battery so in theory the LG G3 could have been called the LG G2S as it is pretty much the same device
So orders may have fallen due to Apple IP6 launch but any desertions will be to LG as I can't see the IP6 coming in at an affordable price, and it is more likely defectors will want to keep the mSD card and battery offered by LG than move to apple
Sapphire or not, I see more phones in cases than not, so the desire to be caseless will be a selling point
Apple may be affecting the market, on the plus side, the negative is its price and will there be another "C" version of the Flagship
In india , galaxy s5 is one of the biggest flops for Samsung ever. It is available now for 35k INR. 32% price drop in 2 months is really poor.
Even in India iPhone sells more than s5 in premium segment.
There is a reason why Samsung sales head joined local company.

Android isnt company, android cant destroy anyone, its operating system :D oh these fanboys...
Oh i take it back, android can actually destroy companies who use it like HTC for example and these companies cant do anything to stop it ;)
i heard that the iphone is coming out with display and keyboard projectors
In India prices are already 10000rs down ( approx 170$) since launch, I think they will cut prices more within a month or so. Good for common persons like me.

Surprising that 30 android OEMs together can sell more than one company :D
Yes in low and mid end, not in high end market where iPhone is. Even if you combine all the android OEMs hiend phones sales together Apple sells more iPhones. And after iPhone 6 the gap going to be even bigger in hi-end phones and android OEMs keep owning the lowend markets and OEMs losing money because they cant make profit, eventually those OEMs need to rethink their strategy if they dont want to end up like HTC
Everyone waiting for iPhones. The release of iOS 8 and Yosemite OSX is only a preview of iphone 6 strength.
and as a practical example, I'm mad to change my Galaxy S4, but I want the best flagship smartphone of the year! , and so I have to wait for the Galaxy S5 Prime. and then I will compare it with the LG G3 ( 3GB RAM / 32GB Storage version ) than it will depend from which one will be the better of the two!? I'll absolutely buy it!!!!! (((and those who know at least a bit of technology / smartphones, they all have my own same opinion!)))
