Anonymous, 16 Jul 2014.. Then why is iPhone 5S sales is better? :P It seems it can do much much more then android... moreHigh end android isn't just confined to samsung y'know. If you really believe that there's anything that an iphone can do that an android couldn't then I suggest to broaden your knowledge.
I have spoken to some large retailers in Hong Kong, Sydney, Singapore and Seattle: almost all said that yes, S5 sales have been way below expectations and in a few cases below that of the S4. The reasons seem to be mainly saturation in the Android sphere (HTC One M8, LG G2/G3 and Sony Z1/Z2, as well as the iPhone), but also that there are very good discounts on last years models, which still offer very good specs at a huge saving...and people who bought them last year are still happy for now. A bad sign for profitability...
AnonD-56158, 16 Jul 2014Mid range phones are also eating up S5 sales. Specs for midrange phone used to belong to high ... more.. Then why is iPhone 5S sales is better? :P
It seems it can do much much more then androids offers. Else no one will buy expensive phones right?
in android world there are lots and lots of better choices so no surprises here, samy is fighting with these and c(r)apple while the latter has its own loyal ifans no matter what
the new Galaxy S5 is too big and too expensive.
people would prefer Note 3 over S5 since both have the same price tags.
Mid range phones are also eating up S5 sales. Specs for midrange phone used to belong to high end phone only but times has change. Why spend so much when you just want to make a call, text and surf.
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2014Admit it Samsung. Metal construction, with buildin non-removable battery still better. Do not ... moreIt is not about metal and non removable battery. It is about the wrong way Samsung headed.
The wrong thing they did in S5 compared to S4 are:
With almost same screen size as S4.
They though the company's reputation will let them build a crap and every one will buy.
Sammy very simple
Cut down the price of phone
Do attract with more ads for consumers
Coz Indian mobile lover willing to have one
due to cost they are behind other brands
Sammy consider Indian mobile market has huge potential
encash them !!!!
