A high tech company sees its once booming stock drop, wiping out $20 billion of market value in a week as questions are raised about the continued success of its hugely successful flagship smartphone; if you think that we are talking about Apple, you are dead wrong. The company involved here is Korean based Samsung which has seen its stock drop amongst a number of analyst downgrades...

I do think Samsung is complacent in term of hardware design and their latest offering notes 8.0 confirm it. They have pack mediocre display and past it off as high end. Their only decent tab is the tab 7.7 after which nothing even their tab 3 does not excite.

I will not buy again a flagship phone with 16 gig of ROM, no enough space for hd games and apps, (music and video to sd). But I am well comfortable using Samsung smartphones than others, I think I'll stick to my gnote 2 unless gnote 3 and min of 32 gig of R O M.

Yeah there is too much hype surround the S4 and I'd say in time the Note III. I'm waiting on the Note IV because I don't see big enough improvements in technology to make me retire my Note II.

From a politically money market stand point. I think the iPhone rumors about cheaper phones, new OS, and appeling to a wider audience had something to do with it. A long with the fact that investors are basically GUESSING and selling their stock for a profit. This doesn't mean the company is doing bad or worse. They could be doing the best they ever have. It's just the way the stock market works. I do think Samsung is making a huge mistake with all of the phone variants. Basically it's turning out to be like GM except in phones. Too many models.

Yes, I would agree with Sammy creating too many different models.

Faster than I thought. It would seem Samsung stocks will now rise and fall as much as Apple's does.

All they needed to do is make was a little redesign for it to stand out compared to previous generations and their budget models along with their competitors. Despite how much Samsung fanatics deny it, switching it up a bit with a different build material other than plastic would have had these phones at least matching analysts initial sales forecast. It would have truly defined it as the next generation must have Samsung phone.
