    Default Samsung CEO Debunks Talks of Slow Galaxy S4 Sales


    Samsung CEO J.K. Shin had a lot to say this week as he reassured investors that the company’s latest flagship smartphone is indeed selling well, while at the same time dismissing the notion that the company is anywhere close to easing the strained relationship with its chief rival, Apple. Samsung’s stock dropped 6% last week when a J.P Morgan report warned investors that sales of its recently launched Galaxy S4 smartphone could fall short of expectations. Shin dismissed J.P. Morgan’s analysis of S4 sales according to The Korea Times. He said the following regarding the matter:

    I can say sales of the Galaxy S4 smartphone are fine. It's been selling well. The report was based on its own analysis. Probably the bank may have corrected its previous bullish estimate about the S4 sales.
    Samsung launched the S4 in the middle of tremendous hype and the company expects to sell around 100 million of the Android-powered devices. Within the first 28 days of availability, the S4 moved roughly 10 million units causing both J.P. Morgan and Morgan Stanley to revise their sales estimates downward. The ensuing sell-off resulted in Samsung’s largest single-day drop in nine months, taking Samsung’s shares to a four-month low. The South Korean conglomerate lost $12.4 billion in market capitalization and the stock has been a downward trend since.

    Shin also commented on Samsung’s ongoing worldwide patent struggle with Apple, mentioning that Samsung has no plans to relent or concede. Shin said the following regarding the topic:

    Patent disputes against Apple will continue.

    The difference is the iPhone 5's are being sold to be used as phones, where as the S4's are being sold to be used as paperweights and toilet paper

    I've had friends switch from Android to Apple because of the issues they had with the phone and OS. Once they switched to Apple they were very satisfied.

    I know this will be a never ending battle over which phone is better, but Apple wins my vote.

    Yep sold my 4S last Sept on ebay for 400.00 easy and didn't have to ship it till my iPhone 5 came in either LOL. Buddy of mine went thru 3-4 GS3's and then verizon gave him a Moto razor and he wasnt happy with that either and went to trade it in and they only gave him 70.00 towards the GS4 LOL

    So true! I sold my 4s for $350 after the iPhone 5 came out. That paid for the new phone with leftover cash! The only time I've seen other smartphone sell for that price is if they're brand new.

    Can't believe iPhone 4S went for that low. I sold my 4S in Nov 2012 for $434 on eBay. That too 16 GB.

    Galaxy has been and always will be a junk phone. At least the new htc is sleek and metal like the iphone. The galaxy just feels cheap. Just a cheap plastic phone. It's a joke really. Great new commercial samsung with the "look away from the screen to pause video." I mean seriously? Is that some kind of joke? That is more of a pain in the ***** feature than a useful one. So basically showing a video to a group of friends I guess I'm not allowed to look up at anybody to talk because then my video gets paused while everybody is trying to watch. So lame. At least the tvs samsung makes are nice

    You people have no idea. Check swappa, S4s are selling so fast and at the $600+ mark. iPhone 5 64gbs aren't even doing that.

    It's all about the market demand. People who pay over $150 for a 4s are dumb. There will always be a market for both iPhones and galaxy devices so don't just assume cuz u don't like something that no one else does. Lets try to keep the fanboyism down some, huh?

    Who cares what it feels like? It's about what's inside more than anything.

    This is from swappa. You should have done your research before you posted.
