      But in case of HTC they are in a lot worse condition that ZTE in USA.

          Soon even Nano will be too big in term of HTC :-)

              Look where is Xiaomi in just 8 years.
              And it started from a scratch.
              So price is the biggest factor.
              Thus less and less people like samsung.
              All whats samsung keeps above the water level uis a fact they sells everything from electrical tooth brush to many kitchen machines, white and black tech, pc, tv, hifi, audio and many other. Big production. They produce lot more than people are able to consume thus the Samsung problem.
              They leaping much higher than they would soon or later someone break their leggs.

                CptPower, 13 Oct 2018Companies wont hear. THey say they have tons of expenses ... moreThey're not wrong about the expenses though. And I know, couldn't they just make the phones 200 cheaper and call it a day? That's uncertain, because selling by volume now has it's risks in this bloated market

                  Walter C. Dornez, 12 Oct 2018Because people are dumb enough to buy. Nowadays, it's us wh... moreCompanies wont hear.
                  THey say they have tons of expenses and other crap.
                  But the truth is that highest officials of Samsung company earns so much i dont see that money yearly not even per life :-P

                    CptPower, 12 Oct 2018I dislike samsung marketinjg asking too much for nothing. ... moreBecause people are dumb enough to buy. Nowadays, it's us who need to force companies to tone it down

                      Poco cost 300 or 350 and offering best CPU GPU and other awesome specs.
                      *Compared to that midranger from Samsung cost almost twice the poco and it ave SD450 at most.

                        CptPower, 12 Oct 2018Well i am out of arguments on that. But for avoiding dmg ... moreDepends on the person, but make no mistake. Both are fantastic at making phones. Huawei is just better at pricing them, Samsung is better at marketing them

                          But for avoiding dmg battery champs prevail rounders.

                                CptPower, 09 Oct 2018In euros for 512GB version yes it was about 1500. Now is ... moreHmm, I suppose it's because of mostly three reasons
                                1) Customers: these guys who are in the main market are the ones who but these at the price they are sold. Because many go on carrier plans which ends up to about half the price yearly, some people who buy all out and there are people who get them cheaper. The prices are there because there is a market at where they sell it at that much money. Anybody who wishes not to pay, uses mid-range and budget. It's no different from Huawei
                                2) Cost: this is actually pretty surprising, but profit margins have gone down. The money to make these has gone higher and they want to make the maximum amount of money to cover the costs. Especially in R&D, Samsung uses a lot of money on R&D and has more workers than any other smartphone company
                                3) Profit: this is obvious, every company wants to profit. Now I know Samsung is actually profiting a lot from their hardware business, but that some can't cover everything. Samsung, Apple, and Huawei are the biggest smartphone companies, and each make a ton of money off of the flagships. Each give the users a choice to buy. In the end, the profit just has to be big.

                                I know it doesn't make much sense, after all the prices do drop, bit think about it like this from Huawei's and Samsung's point of view. Both sell a lot from preorders, and when interest starts to wane, they decrease the price to sell more.

                                  Walter C. Dornez, 09 Oct 2018Ah, okay I see what you mean. So the price of the Note 9 is... moreIn euros for 512GB version yes it was about 1500.
                                  Now is 500 less in Samsung store.
                                  Some online shops and Eshops with no physical shop sells even less but i doubt its a brand new.

                                    CptPower, 08 Oct 2018Well i understand Samsung is no xiaomi. So selling Note 9 f... moreAh, okay I see what you mean. So the price of the Note 9 is like 1500 in Slovakia?

                                      Walter C. Dornez, 05 Oct 2018What don't you understand exactly? I'm willing to clear up ... moreWell i understand Samsung is no xiaomi. So selling Note 9 for púrice of Poco is not possible.
                                      But to start from basic.
                                      Whats the point to sell note 9 for 1500 bucks 512GB version if month after the release you can find same phone for 1000???
                                      To me its pure greed.
                                      And i hate greed.

                                        CptPower, 03 Oct 2018No i come to present my opinion. Because i live long enou... moreWhat don't you understand exactly? I'm willing to clear up some things and you know I agree with you on a few things myself
