The thing is, I never said anything about the products being good or bad. I just merely pointed out the fact that smartphone sales werent going down.

Talking abput brainwash, it must be china that brainwashed you, since you seem so eager to defend your beloved brands even though they arent attacked or their opponent is praised.

Ironic.

This $6 billion operating profit per quarter is for the whole Samsung chaebol, which includes Samsung Electronics.

They are ignorant and don't usually go for best phones which suited their needs în a fixed buget. Good phones from Samsung :A40, A50, A70 and Note10 Plus în Europe. Rest are colored craps. Same aplies for Huawei budget - mid-range phones.

Also, you spinsters have been saying the same shish for over a decade. Samsung has averaged 300 million device sales per year during that time.
They're popular because they don't gouge you with proprietary scams like some or leave backdoors for uncle xi, like others. They simply make great phones that people buy.

Don't just say a phone is better because they sell a lot. I already mentioned that I have tried the M30s, A30s, and A40s (not A10s and M10s though), and yet they have cheap build, opening the lockscreen takes too long. Shamsung is well-known for slapping cheap chipsets in their lower/mid end models, optimising their OS poorly, and use bad quality materials, then charge higher. A40s is selling hard because it is overhyped and they want to buy the usual. Much like the iPhone XR and 11 (they are great devices but the LCD screen and connectivity is low-rent, which tends to be overlooked).

Oh not to mention the S10 and Note 10 doesn't sell well for some reason. Very expensive for an Android device, has ugly punch hole, good cameras but loses to the P30 Pro with 50x hybrid zoom, rubbish Exynos chipset (fast, but throttles too early), and its user friendly but poorly optimised OS.

Again, there are just too many Shamsung fans pathetically defending their own brand. It's going to sink if the S11/S20 cannot be any cheaper. Putting high end tech but not very useful and charging extra for those.

PartTimePhoner, 08 Jan 2020"Apple and chinese competitors beat you" *Samsung smartphone ... moreShamsung fan getting milked over the brand. Let me tell you, Sammy phones sell too well in the US where the Chinese brands are almost nonexistent. No need to cite articles, you must actually try the phone in a store. In SE Asia and India, Chinese OEMs are selling hard, because they can. So grow up, don't be fooled by Shamsung.

The dent in marketshare and profits is because mid range and low range device sales are dominated by Xiaomi, Realme, Huawei, Asus, etc.

Nghtmare, 08 Jan 2020I will tell you why, Exynos and 3.5mm headphone jack.It's amazing just how clueless you are. Who the hell would upvote such a ridiculous comment? The fall in profits is mostly down to sliding memory prices. The smartphone division is not their main business. Sales of their smartphones have increased, not many other companies saw an increase. Margins for their smartphones are under pressure due to the flood of garbage Chinese phones.

So many people commenting on this when they know NOTHING about business. Samsung is selling MORE phones this year in every quarter than last year. It's the demand from screens (which for example is because Apple sold much less than it expected to!) And demand for memory, chipsets etc is going down. The whole smartphone market is in decline.. People are upgrading every 3 years more and more rather than 2 as before. Samsung is affected by ALL phone market ups and downs!

No worry. Today is Huawei banned, tomorrow might be OnePlus or LG or else. USA will help you, Samsung No worry :)

This is bound to happen when you're selling recycled trash for years and discontinuation of yesteryear's flagship be a compulsion to save sales of following year's flagship.

Samsung Mobiles îs overrated atleast în Europe. Poor Exynos processors. Bad camera on A and M series compared to competition. Charge more just for the brand. A40, A50, A70 and Note10+ were good phones. Lets see în 2020 if they can come up with more than 4 good phones.

Anyhow, you might want to read the article first as it states that they're doing good in smartphone sales numbers. Although I agree that they should put decent chipsets in their midrange phones and stop milking older chipsets.

DARK PREDITOR, 08 Jan 2020You need to take a back seat fella, chilli pills are in order Sa... moreHaha yeah definitely I must be a Samsung fanboy because I corrected you about something you said that was wrong which automatically makes me a fanboy because mistakes should not be corrected and no one should be informed correctly if you arent a fanboy.

Sure man.

Would saying "huawei sells more than xiaomi" make me a huawei fan too? I mean, Im giving an information and its factually correct but it doesnt make huawei look bad, or does it only work on Samsung because its Samsung?
