But when they don't, it's because their phones are sold at the same ridiculously high price, whereas Samsung phones get cheaper. Add that to the marketing costs, and the answer becomes clear. Judging from your username, it's safe to say that no more should be used to reply to your comments.

Do you understand how detrimental it is to mess with financial statement? "Do you trust what Samsung says?" what a silly question that is. Financial statement will be what it is. Nothing more, nothing less.
iPhone is King, 07 Oct 2014Do not blame Samsung.

Its could happen also to APPLE...as we know the history of MACINTOSH 1990s declined.
60% quaterrly revenue drop is a serious bussiness impact.
Samsung must remember...their not combating to APPLE...
APPLE has different role of in mobile market..
their having high competition with among android OEM now.
Most CHINA android flagship sell half from SAMSUNG price and
pack with powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon SOC.
Q4 2014 will be more challennging for them if still introduce new product with arrogant hefty price tag.

60% is a huge drop and additional marketing and lower asp cannot result in a fall like this.
Last quarter eBay told penguin phones are selling well and that's a really made up story.

Peasant brands, always try to stir unrest among the Kingdom of phones, trying to fault the King at every turn, instead of promoting their own brand alone, thus their resources ran dry.
Apple is king,but how time...!!.This year or (next year only). =/ Money talk,but how much!.
The so called "crap" always shatters their sales every release and its never the other way around. LOL
I swear everyone misinterprets the article. It's saying smartphone sales went up, but because of marketing and the decrease of smartphone prices that their profits went down. When people start to bash samsung and say 'finally' and whatnot, read the article first. You people just skip to the comments to bash on Samsung don't you.
Reta, 07 Oct 2014The only company that was able to make huge profits and being the world largest phone manufac... moreNokia was king because it never had any competition. When more and more manufacturers entered into the scene, it immediately faded into oblivion. The REAL king here is APPLE. They obliterated every other smartphone manufacturer in the last 7 years since the first iPhone. And they only keep getting bigger and bigger every year.
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2014"King of phones" Lol. That's hilarious.There he is! LOL..
Samsung peaked quickly. SONY lasted much longer as the biggest electronic makers. Samsung made a bang but their product was never actually better than the competition.
High marketing costs to bash Apple, here's what you get in return Samsung
I am waiting for Mr, Ms or whatever knowledgeable Anonymous to save samsung in this article. I wonder what his argument would be..LOL
Do not blame Samsung.
Its because its Q3. The release of the King of phones. iPhone. Everyone will be overshadowed. The whirlwind will only subside in Q4.. maybe Q1 2015. When all the buying frenzy of iPhone is over. Then the peasant brands can continue its plastic sales.
