[deleted post]Samsung is 35% of South Corea GDP, you really think they care about Apple sales ? Not much. Their campaign is just nothing if their global com budget and their cellphone branch isn't event their best income (they build ships, nuclear plants, buildings and many electrinics devices, including pro gear).
So stop being an idiot
Note 4, Edge are all underpowered. They are just eye candy in specs. I would rather get bendgate iphone
Its not because of [APPLE] recently announce IP6/6+.
Their profit has been declined since 2 quarters before in this year 2014.
They still in profiteering zone but 60% revenue reduce in just for 3 months business is a bad sign for long run.Its good time now for Samsung now become competitive price brand rather than high luxury brand.
As we know...the world is round.life is like up and down...
1. Samsung has had declining profits in the previous two quarters.
2. Samsung trade-ins tripled prior to iPhone 6 launch.
3. Chinese rivals had better profits in the two quarters Samsung had declining profits.
4. Now, in the quarter that the iPhone 6 is launched (with bigger screens), Samsung has its biggest decline ever, despite the launch of SGS5 and SGN4.
It can be concluded that the iPhone 6, along with chinese rivals have stolen a lot of sales from Samsung.
Samsung has to either raise prices or sell more phones to increase profits. It's experiment with higher prices has clearly failed, so it needs to go back to the drawing board.
Offer better specced products like they used to, at competitive prices. Also, if they want to play the premium smartphone game, make sure that the phone is actually premium, with superior materials and build quality.
This is a wake up call for Samsung to be more competitive and stop advertising propaganda against Apple. Karma is a bitch.
[deleted post]You need medical attention. The amount of nonsense apple propaganda you spout is hilariously dangerous for your own good.

Samsung have been relying on the halo created since Samsung Galaxy S2, which was really a good product. This continued with S3 at least, where on paper, the spec list was unbeatable. With S4 Samsung started getting sloppy, while rivals caught up, and even went ahead with better build material. Now finally results are beginning to show, indicating the momentum Samsung had has now ended. If they want to recover, they have to go back to what they did well, which is best performing products, at an affordable price, and stop trying to be Apple.
joonius, 07 Oct 2014If you don't trust financial statements what can you trust? Do you understand how detrimental ... moreI trust the financial part but not the reasons part.
Last quarter the reasons were something like Premium phones are doing well but got hit at miffs and longer end segment.
But now we know that samsung's premium phones are obliterated.

Samsung must change mobile sale strategy...
Jack up the price tag wont help to solve this immediately.2015 will be more tough for all android OEM including HTC,Sony,LG,Moto and Asus.
Why LENOVO/Xiomi can sell much cheaper with comparable quality compare to those Samsung galaxy line up?
WE know their product not perfect....but at least...it a decent price tag will help to boost consumer purchase confident level.
