    Apple is expected to sell around 40 million iPhone’s which includes the iPhone SE’s, iPhone 6, 6s, and 7’s. Samsung is expecting to sell over 80 million smartphones. The Q2 2017 quarter is expected to sell around 350 million smartphones with the vast majority being Android.

      Samsung s8 and s8+ sales down the toilet.Samsung’s Galaxy sales have not only failed to rebound to previous highs on the premium end but are also being hit hard by new Chinese models on the low and medium tiers.

    • Smanny

      You do know that Samsung has a bunch of models every year. Like around 50 different models every year. For instance the S8 active is going to be released very soon. Not to mention newer A and J models as well.

      I do agree that every year premium Android smartphones are hit hard, especially when the competition amoungst Android OEMs is so fierce. Plus the mid range Android smartphones continue to see higher end specs as well. It’s not like Android OEMs can sit on their laurrels like Apple. In the Android camp, new hardware is arriving every week. For instance Apple can put out a new iPhone once a year. A prime example is the latest iPhone 7. It has a HD display and it’s flagship priced. There is no way on this planet that the iPhone 7 hardware could ever command a flagship price if it was running Android. Because their are so many OEMs that have top notch specs on their flagship devices at lower prices.

      That won’t last forever, Apple will have to once again innovate to remain as profitable as they are. Their devices are horrendously outdated, not just on spec, but especially design. I’m a user of a 7 Plus and an S8, and the Samsung is far far nicer and better designed than my 7 Plus.

    • ciderrules

      Bull. I have an S7, S8 and iPhone 7 Plus. iPhone 7 runs circles around both. Sure, if you just open Facebook or Twitter you won’t notice the difference. But try to do anything that requires any power and the iPhone 7 pulls way ahead.

      This gets magnified even more by the fact Android Apps are still way behind their iOS equivalents. Even in 2017. A shiny new phone with a fast processor and nice screen is useless if there’s no software to take advantage of it. And iOS is way out front in this regard.

    • thereasoner

      Blah, blah, blah… lying to yourself won’t change anything. Nobody who runs a quality Android devices will believe a word that you say and normal iPhone users with half a brain can recognize a dishonest iFanatic when they see one as well.

      ciderdrools has 2 Samsung phones??? Suuuuuuure you do.

    • It’s Me

      Pretty much. These are good results but the increase is mostly from their parts business. The comparison to Apple is kind of funny. They managed to overtake them in historically their lowest quarter. Woot!

    • ciderrules

      Yup. Let’s compare Samsungs best quarter to Apples worst. How about we all come back in 6 months and compare Apple best to Samsung? When Apple will have double the profit of Samsung.

      Then watch everyone scream it’s not a fair comparison.

    • thereasoner

      Why do you feel so threatened by Samsungs success? Are you afraid for your job at Apple HQ?

      This is the first time Samsung ever surpassed Apple in profits so of course it’s going to be widely reported on. Acting like a child won’t change anything!

    • Domino67

      “Are you afraid for your job at Apple HQ?”…..

      I am sure ciderdrools iFluffer job will be steady for a loooong time.

    • Domino67

      If we come back in 6 months will you still be here whining/trolling?

    • thereasoner

      Actually Samsung has reported a 20% sales improvement overall for the S8 vs the S7.

    • h2oflyer

      Is it 15 % or 20 % ?

      Just pick a number. We all know Samsung is desperate to tell the world the stupid S8 is the best ever. WRONG

      If Samsung had real marketing brains rather than thuggery, they would be be promoting the S9, but unfortunately they can’t, that would mean being honest.

    • Domino67

      R E A D the article.

    • h2oflyer

      And you believe everything you read, especially from Samsung ! LMAO . Marketing people look for those with NIEVE on their forehead.

    • Domino67

      I get that marketing people look for the customers that are naive ….look at Apple!

    • Domino67

      S8 and S8+ are 15% HIGHER than the S7 sales……So if 15% up is considered down the toilet better call the tidy bowl man then.

    • h2oflyer

      Let’s get this comprehension right.

      1..Samsung has always reported true information such as sequential stories regarding Note7 battery failures.

      2..Bribery (synonymous with thievery and lying) is standard operating procedure for Samsung executives when not in jail.

      3.. The S7’s were the best ever from Samsung, look around and see who’s using what phone. Try very hard not to believe S8 sales figures from Samsung.

    • Domino67

      Ooooh but I should believe you?…..

      What you post has ZERO to do with S8 sales.

      That’s like calling Tim Cook a criminal because Apple don’t report all their income…..An Apple company made 30 billion and did NOT do a tax return for 5 years and has no employees.

    • h2oflyer

      It has everything to do with S8 sales. Don’t believe me, look around and count the S8’s.

      I don’t support Apple or Samsung or Sony or Huawei. I had a S7 for a year and loved it. I just point out the sleaziest of the bunch and their flawed and stupid S8.

    • Domino67

      How does an executive donating money to the president of South Korea causes have ANYTHING to do with the S8 sales?….please for us that are naive (not nieve) draw us a straight line to it.

    • h2oflyer

      You must belong to that group that believe Samsung needs your support and loyalty no matter the quality of the product.

      I might’ve bought a S8 and improved the sales record if I knew it came with spell check.

    • Domino67

      “I might’ve bought a S8 “……I might’ve bought “AN” S8…..

      I still have not seen any proof from you that the S8 sales are not what that they have been reported to be.

    • h2oflyer

      It’s taking a while, but you’ll figur it out.

    • Domino67

      No….If you are going to make a claim then you should be prepared to back it up….otherwise it’s just hearsay.

    • h2oflyer

      It’s taking too long. You’ll never finger it out.

    • Domino67

      Hearsay is all you have.

    • h2oflyer

      Typical Samsung trol…has no idea what’s happening around him.

    • Domino67

      Please point it out for us ignorant people that obviously are not quite up to your intellectual standards.
      FTR…I have had a ZL,Z2,Z3 and Z5….so you can take your snarky “Samsung trol” comment and stuff it up your butt.

    • ciderrules

      80 million with an ASP in the low $200 range. For every S8 sold Samsung sells 3 sub $100 garbage phones.

      This is the reality of Android. A very small number of flagships and a gazillion throwaway $50 phones.

    • Domino67

      The reality is that virtually EVERY other company spends more on R&D than Apple does….that also affects the bottom line.

  • h2oflyer

    Just imagine how much profit could be made if they hired a fingerprint sensor placement engineer and didn’t forget how to make non combustible batteries.

    • It’s Me

      But but but, the back is better. It has to be cuz that’s where they moved it.

    • h2oflyer

      They must have blown the design budget and hired a shrinking bezel engineer instead.

    • It’s Me

      And then the loyal diehards convinced themselves the tradeoff was a feature.

    • Eluder

      No different than the Apple diehards. I do think the back placement of the fingerprint sensor is the best (referring to Nexus 6p, Pixel, etc), but Samsung’s implementation is terrible. It’s quite unreliable compared to any other device I’ve had.

    • ciderrules

      Not for mobile payments. Try using a rear sensor on a terminal with a security/privacy shield on it.

    • thereasoner

      It’s easy, Android users don’t have to keep their finger on the sensor bit even if they chose to do so anyways the back placement works just fine and affords a much better grip on the phone vs lower front placement.

      Think before you type 🙂

    • h2oflyer

      So, is the better grip another excuse, or is it a design feature.

    • thereasoner

      No convincing necessary, it’s an obvious improvement.

    • It’s Me

      You sound convinced. Well done.

    • h2oflyer

      Yep, you nailed it. You obviously have the credentials to apply for the job of fingerprint sensor placement engineer.

      Your skill and foresight into hardware design would help improve S8 sales.

    • It’s Me

      Takes a lot of years, decades, of working on a factory line to get where he is 😉

    • Domino67

      It’s a good thing that an Air Egypt plane that killed 66 passengers didn’t have a Note 7 in the cockpit then eh?

  • Do Do

    Really the only conversation that should be happening here is about corporate gluttony by BOTH Samsung and Apple.

  • thereasoner

    Just look at the iFanatic Gestapo on display here. So insecure about Samsung making more money than Apple for a change. It’s hilarious how worked up they are but seriously, get a life people!

    • h2oflyer

      It’s all about the fingerprint sensor placement engineer they didn’t hire. Just think of all the extra money they could of made. They should quickly hire this guy and then they can blame him/her for less than stellar S8 sales.

    • It’s Me

      Dimmest people in the world are the quickest to bring ŋazі references into conversations.
      Not really a surprise it’s you again 😉

    Well, these comments are entertaining. ????
