And if the phone is not connected to wifi/cellular its just a piece of brick.

hmmm.. i dont see anything wrong reserving all the goods from the supplier.

it just business. I am sure sammy pays more to qualcomm for sealing the deal. it may just sammy knows exactly how it would performs and take a huge step ahead.

it just business. not a foul step. imagine you importing some goods and negotiate with the supplier to make you sole distributor of that goods in your country.

is that a unethical step ? i think not ! :X

Tann Hauser, 27 Jan 2017My sentiment exactly :-) Wont ruin it for them but hey.... at... moreSame. I hate this disrespectful company. All their design and things are so sh*ty comparing they spent millions and other companies thousands (just a comparison). I mean they become like Apple expensive, but you get nothing exept for that Apple has a story worth their logo and work and all the money that they get paid, but when you pay for Apple product you know that you will get phone that is good.

This is also 100% legal and 100% ethical worldwide. You obviously have no business sense or business knowledge. Another reason why Samsung is a leader in technology and sales.

Sony is such a small player now in mobile phones, nobody really cares what they attempt. Actually Sony is out of the top 10 in phone sales now and still dropping further behind. Slipping more and more behind the others due to lack of innovation, bad quality and overpricing.

You play games, 5% of speed difference matters to you and you are happy for Koreans to have backdoor to your phone, turning you mic and camera without your knowledge. You also adore Touchwiz interface, first thing you do is sign-up to Samsung account to use their mediocre apps and share your love life on Facebook.

For rest of us, unless it's Qualcom chip and phone comes with unlocked bootloader (so you can run lineage or any other custom clean ROM) , we don't bother even reading the announcement yet alone the review.

It's still a mystery on why Samsung is going to buy a lot of SnapDragon 835 units when the fact that they have their own Exynos 8895 which is better. Are they going to do the same with the S7 and S7 Edge? Are the S8 and S8 Plus going to be sold mostly in the US? As far as we know, US is Apple's biggest fanbase, so how are they going to compete there? Or is it just their strategy of selling an inferior version of the S8 / S8 Plus and whoever buys it is considered 'idiot?'

AnonD-638451, 26 Jan 2017Hope Samsung S8 factory will explode with their phones and chips... moreLol I can feel your hate through my screen, don't worry their mobile division just made over $2 billion in profit last quarter (I can only imagine what their overall profits were) and they'll make double that after the release of the next phone(s) of the year.
