Since when Smasung was innovator in smart phone market? Do not people look eagerly at Apple for innovations in smart phone?

_HM, it's fair to question how how innovative Samsung is in terms of smart phones, perhaps, since the organization has more proved itself by tweaking products to lure customers. However, the company does do more than just smart phones: screen technology, TVs, batteries, and chip design. In these areas, i think the company shows more creativity.

@Hailey: Yes, I agree. But another aspect is brand image. To create this unique respect among community, they need to do much more.

The brands also needs to effectively understand and work on the side of more resources for the smartphones.

@Hailey, I agree with you on that. Moreover, Samsung seems to have more products it manufacture.

I am not sure i get your question.

"Services such as ordering taxis, mobile payments, and location-based services will add value on top of the smartphone platform"

All those are neither from Samsung nor Apple but Google. Google's been an arrowhead in the space of innovation, so it would continue to be. While the likes of Samsung and Apple are focusing on hardware and device's features.

@_hm, Has Samsung not proven itself with many smart mobile and domestic gadgets?

Smartphone with small screen and tiny touchcreen keypads might not serve consumers better than the bigger ones. Also, storage capacity and battery life are important resources now than before.

@Wale, consumers have found better ways (or little bit expensive but managable) to work around the battery issue. Some of the consumers now carry extra battery but most of them carry portable charged battery which can refill the smartphone battery upto 6 times so the battery life is a little problem for most.

@Himanshugupta, You are right on that, I noticed recently that many power- conscious consumers go about with that power bank stuff.

Yeah, all the comments in Italic are confusing. It is difficult to separate the quotes from comments.

  • Perhaps until then should be a beneficial idea to use bold for the attached comments.

"Samsung is now completely unable to differentiate on the software side with Google driving Android consistency"

To be honest, I doubt if this would be a good or a great move, why Samsung should do that move? From my point of view if this even happens will indicate the END. Also, when we are referring to Android is not equal to Google, Google is the leading company.
