Samsung Galaxy is still Korea's strongest brand despite Note 7 saga
posted by Ben R. / Oct 03, 2016, 4:12 AM
Samsung's Galaxy mobile device brand is as well-known as any. We've seen countless smartphones and tablets released under the Galaxy umbrella in recent years, including some of the company's most successful exports. As you'll probably have seen, though, the recent Galaxy Note 7 roll-out didn't quite go to plan, and Samsung's reputation in general has taken a considerable hit. Still, as the recall / relaunch of its latest top-end phablet continues globally, Samsung Galaxy has managed to retain pole position as South Korea's most valuable brand.
the device is now back for sale in Korea, and there are plans to have the Note 7 ready for several other markets over the coming weeks
According to Brand Stock's index of brands in Korea, Samsung Galaxy topped the pile with a score of 912.1 points for Q3 of this year. Though it's not precisely clear how Brand Stock reaches its figures, if Samsung Galaxy can survive a quarter where its newest release is recalled for cases of exploding batteries, one suspects it's probably going to remain top brand for quite a while.
As you'll notice, Google also carries plenty of clout over in Korea, having claimed ninth spot in the country during the third quarter. With the Mountain View company about to take the wraps off several big products at a special event this week, it may have edged closer to Samsung Galaxy by the time Brand Stock publishes its Q4 research.

Because Samsung Galaxy doesn't only mean Galaxy S and Galaxy Note? There's A series, J series, Tab series, all are Samsung Galaxy devices. One fiasco won't change a thing.

Go read the article again, and don't forget to get a dictionary if you found unknown vocabulary.

Mate, why do you defend Samsung so much? I mean come on man, if you want to be brand loyal, there are plenty other manufacturers who make phones better than Samsung... You are fanatic for Samsung and the only reason behind it is probably that you have one flagship that you bought and need to justify its capability.

Better phones are subject to one's opinion. Even though I am not a Samsung user, I still find their flagship way better than others. Currently, my girl is using one plus 3 and I am using Huawei P9 as primary and iPhone 6S as a secondary phone. However, I still find my friends Galaxy S7 edge way better in terms of its looks, Camera and display. Performance wise, all flagship are identical now. So it's perfectly normal to be Samsung loyal fan considering it's a great brand.

Yet it amazes me that people still buy them. Some people rather have design and features over speed.

Idiots it's the Galaxy Note7Edge. This is not a Note7. Curved screen are Edge series. This Note7 does not look anything like their Note version.

I have a Note 7 and I think it's the best phone out there. But, I'm not a Samsung fanboy. I really don't know why HTC and LG didn't use this recall as an opportunity and advertise a lot more. It's like they've given up or settled.

Because it wouldn't have mattered if they did advertise more. Their phones suck. HTC has been on top before. In 2010 when they released the Evo 4G on Sprint, it took off. In fact the Droid Incredible and HTC Evo 4G, outsold the iPhone for 3 quarters of that year. LG is never gonna be on top because, well their G series sucks compared to the S. If I had never bought the Note, I would have simply stuck with the Galaxy S. It is the best phone in its class period. The Note is the only phoen in its class. So what other phone are the other guys go to use to go toe to toe with the Note? No one has anything similar. You all act like the Note is the only phone Samsung makes. If that were the case, then your argument would stand. But none of the Android OEM's can even out sell the S. I know they don't stand a chance against the Note. The Note alone has over 35M users. Which OEM outside of Samsung even sells 30M phones in a year. Come on man, be real!

This is obviously a nationalistic poll, designed to keep Korean companie(s) on top.

Very well deserved. Great bang for buck devices from a responsible company that stands behind its products. Hope they tighten their QC department and ensure this doesn't happen for another 5+ years.
