    Duck of death, 20 Apr 2022And with that mentality your Chinese brands will never catch up. Huawei was nearly to surpass Samsung but got sanctioned before they make it.

      Even the iPhone's display manufactured by Samsung Display, that's not the same as Galaxy's display. Because Apple uses customized materials.

      And there're many components has the same difference.

        Plus, I'd like to tell is this: a low-end smartphone price especially galaxy's price does not guarantee that's a reasonable price.

          Fun fact, 20 Apr 2022Well, at least you realized thats only profits from Samsung... moreAnd yet Samsung with all its divisions and all of this that you posted still doesn’t come close to being worth as much as Apple. Wow!😂

                  Anonymous, 19 Apr 2022Why do people buy a branded shirt? doesn't a cheap shi... moreyes you are absolutely correct. But the fact that the person who buy expensive shirt , watches , bag is only a handfully. who is already rich and not sure where they get money from and want to show off.

                    Anonymous, 19 Apr 2022Why ppl buy scamsung phone?it is an overpriced piece of shitPeople buy Samsung because they are not chinese. That's the main reason.

                      demands are lower because all people have their old smartphones still in good condition

                          Xiaomi = budget king
                          Samsung = mid to flagship king
                          Apple = $300 phones but they sell it $1000 and it's american brand!

                          that's how it works.

                              Let alone samsung semiconductor business and other electronic devices unrelated to mobile division.

                              Fun fact. Samsung semiconductor business for the first time in history overtook Intel and becoming number one semiconductor manufacturer in terms of revenues and market share in 2021. For comparison, Qualcomm is rank 4th on the list and TSMC isn't even top 10 manufacturer.

Most people buy Samsung cause they have used the brand for over 10 years and have had no problems with them so they have trust and are used to there OS and dont want to learn other brand OS.

                                  Most of the market dont even care about updates and that isn't something there main goal for buying a phone. It's just plus that it gets updates and some dont even update there phone even tough there are updates available.

                                  The list of dumbness your talking about is only techies but even not them cause they switch there phones every year or tops 2 years. And a lot of clumsy people who drop there phones regularly so they need to switch to new cause there screen is broken. Also there are ways to get new phone when broke a screen when you have a contract that give warranty for broken screen or water damage and so on.

But my phone still works no problems so i dont see a need to buy new one

                                      Android manufacturers are highly dependent on cheap devices selling at low margins, thats why Android manufacturers load ads on their custom UIs, they are trying to make up for the low margins they get from their cheap devices.
