    Firstly that article only refers to the US. In the rest of the world (e.g Europe, India and China) the S10 is selling very well (in part thanks to that Samsung’s market share in Europe jumped). If you bother to do some research you will find out that the S10 series is selling better than the S9 in the US. The S10 HASN’T flopped.

    Get some proper facts and statistics to back up sweeping statements next time.

    Actually it’s not.

    Samsung financials disclosed the lack of demand for the s10, globally not just the US.


    Wrong again.
    European sales of Galaxy s has declined last quarter, Samsung flooded the European market with 12 million units of the a series, the s series declined yoy.

    That’s Samsung’s budget line. S 10 sales has collapsed in Europe and globally.

    FYI. Samsung’s market share in China is less than 1 percent. No idea what you were talking about there.

    You don’t need research or statistics, Samsung disclosed it in their financials last quarter.

    Maybe you should read that instead of what ever your basing your opinions on.


    S10 flopped so hard that second hand prices are in free fall. Last year it took s9 3 months to lose 60% of its value, s10 lost 60% of its value less than a month after launch.




    Samsung mobile isn’t doing any better, last two quarters profits fell by 60 percent yoy.

    Yeah because it is now expensive to purchase a flagship phone. Also, people are holding on to their phones longer because they still work. Phones are better made and some are affordable with flagship specs.

    Trying to justify why the s10 flopped won’t change anything.

    S10 had plenty of $600 off trade ins, added discounts, promotions and freebies to help with the price, it didn’t make any difference.

    That’s all true but more consumers purchased a more expensive iPhone XS Max flagship than a cheaper s10 Flagship last quarter. So don’t know how that applies to consumers holding in to their devices longer.

    Consumers are more comfortable spending 1000 dollars on an iPhone rather than 1000 on a S10, that much is clear.

    And from a tech standpoint, the industry recently hasn’t seen a major innovation out there that would foster users to immediately change their devices.
    When the average consumer is looking at these prices and looking at these features coming out of these new phones, they’re kind of perceiving, ‘Well, is there really that much difference?’ ” The general sense is, ‘Well, my phone is currently good enough.’”

    That doesn’t explain why more consumers are willing to spend more on an iPhone Vs Samsung.

    Here is the global premium market as it stands.
    Premium here refers to 400 dollars and up.




    iPhone XS Max first quarter sales was at 16 million units, s10 plus first quarter sales was only around 6 million before demand/sales completely collapsed.

    Nearly year old iPhone XS Max still outsold the s10 during its launch quarter. That doesn’t look like more people are holding onto the thier old devices.

    Regardless, Apple’s results communicated that the “super cycle” of phone upgrades isn’t exactly going super.

    I’m unfamiliar with the term super cycle.
    Can you quantify that?

    If you re you talking about the q1 warning issued by apple, that has been resolved

    They recovered from that in q2. Actually if you listened in on any of the past two conference calls during the quarterly earnings release, the opposite was disclosed.

    Last quarter was apples best q3 ever recorded.

    Apple is actually doing great, services is talking off so is wearables and iPad sales. iPhone alone is responsible for 28 billion in revenue last quarter.

    Samsung not so much.
    One of the reasons is that poor s10 and premium sales have hit their display and semiconductor business quite hard since Samsung mobile is one of their biggest customers.


    According to Samsung this quarter is going to be even worse.

    If you want more natural photos go for iPhone.

    If you want more vibrant colours, ultra-wide and better low light go for Samsung.

    Both have the same zoom.
