Jarret, 26 Jun 2014That's small matter for Samsung... Samsung will recover a better gain for the next quarteractually i see that samsung earnings will continue to fall in the coming years as smartphone market get saturated, people sick of same samsung brand, iPhone 6 will eat a good amount from switchers and lastly no brand is infalliable
keke, 26 Jun 2014As we all know by this time, that the fall of samsung is the rise of HTC. fall samsung fall AN... moreNope! HTC won't rise until it stops bashing other brands and start giving attention to marketing more.
As we all know by this time, that the fall of samsung is the rise of HTC. fall samsung fall AND rise HTC rise. HTC for life no matter what ( HTC M8 will be crowned a phone of the year come February next year)

Jarret, 26 Jun 2014That's small matter for Samsung... Samsung will recover a better gain for the next quarterI don't think you understand business strategies yet... The more the profits are, the more shareholders will get dividends. If he rate of dividend is falling, shareholders starts getting worried. When they are getting worried, share price decreases. Learn business. Even a drop of million can cause severe panic among the shareholders who are the owners of the company.

The new phone is a tax deduction, as i'm a small business owner, so the end result is that I get a brand new phone with 12 months warranty without costing more than $50-$100.
Sweet hey? :-)

Patents are where the profits are at. Microsoft earns more from Android than Samsung does.
akki, 26 Jun 2014no, samsung phone..........i like this phone....samsung is a good productThis is not about whether the phone is good or not, rather it's about market demand for the phone, and reasons for lowered profit for Samsung.
Analysts reports indicate that it may be due to lower sales.
Do not copy too much Samsung. Understand the tech before you copy. Else you end up with a mismatched device like S5.. something no one of the right mind will buy.
Plus do not come up with new phones so fast!! People are now afraid of upgrading.. just using their current phone until break.. because they know the next phone from you is just 1 or 2 mths away.. no need to change. Retailers do not even bother keep stock.. they know the phone will not sell.. even accessory makers are confused on model, and no good add ons.
I pity those that make the jump from S2 / Note / Note 2 / Note 3 and i bet more in between.. the amount of money spent is crazy.. and in the end without updates and no accessories.

649.00? For what? Only a fool, (or a fanboy) would spend that much cash on a device that old...and plastic junk too boot.
Samsung fans. They simply don't know any better .
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2014Some analysts conclude that it is simply due to poor sales, which Samsung have tried to cover ... moreThe sales numbers in the article are the shipped numbers. Shipped = devices Samsung sold to retailers = what the article is reporting.
Samsung better wake up soon. Outside the world of foolish fanboys, there is very little brand loyalty in mobile. Most people switch brands without blinking. Motorola, then Nokia and Blackberry used to dominate, now they have all fallen away.
