Samsung never lost its mojo at all as Q3 smartphone sales were hot
posted by Alan F. / Sep 03, 2013, 10:08 PM
Samsung Securities, which is a full service investment house, predicts that despite "Galaxy S4′s sluggish initial sales", the manufacturer is expected to sell over 80 million smartphones during the third quarter that ends this month. During the second quarter, the Korean OEM sold 71 million smartphones of which 22 million were the Samsung Galaxy S4. Clearly, the worries about Samsung and its flagship model were over done. The fears that Samsung would ship 7 million Galaxy S4 units monthly instead of the 10 million originally expected, now appears to be paranoia on the part of analysts.
And with the Samsung Galaxy Note III expected to be introduced on Wednesday, the positive sales trend should continue during the fourth quarter. It looks like Samsung never lost its mojo at all.

In our country, youLL notice that almost all artists are switching to Galaxy especially the young ones, grannies are still brainwashed by Apple.. 90% of my friends, schoolmates and relatives own a Samsung device.. s4 is very attractive to business-inclined people and tech addicts SAmsung must do something because HTC One, LG G2, Moto X and Honami are real beasts..

I'm guessing you don't live in the U.S., because the iPhone is far and away the best seller, regardless of demographics.

Or, the iphone is heavily subsidized by carriers in the US unlike bastions of freedom like Europe and Asia. Android still has 52% marketshare in the US. That is why your entire family is standing in line hoping to immigrate to the US.

We know that you need to be led by Apple....without any choice you don't like freedom and responsibility Still can not copy a file or choose any default app, browser etc with a limited iToy You probably even like ebook price fixing by Apple

Maybe some of the reason why the sgs4 is not selling well like the sgs3 just because of lack of internal memory, and glossy back design. Replace the sgs4, with S800 CPU, 32 gig ROM with the back cover of s4 active/sgs2, as early as possible.

Said this all along when news of samsung "strugling" and stock was going down that just like with apple, analyst can't always be trusted. They love playing the market.. anything they say you really got to take it with a pinch of salt
