Samsung Mobile makes more money than Google
How funny is that Samsung is making more money than Google thanks to Samsung’s own Galaxy line.
Google makes money by selling the Android OS to operators. Of course Samsung is one of the biggest sellers of Google’s OS. But the price of all Samsungs phones is worth more than all Googles Android licences.
Since the beginning of Samsung’s Galaxy line, Samsungs income is getting better and better.
Today Asymco reported that Samsung has more income from the mobile branch than Google can get.
Samsung shipped over 58 million mobile phones in the last quarter only.
The question is how long will Samsung keep this winning line.
Of course the Galaxy products by Samsung are hot, but Samsung needs to invest more and more money on new innovations. Samsung’s biggest rival is LG coming up with hot new smartphones next year. Other Asian companies like Sony, ZTE and HUAWEI are also very busy to bring more and more smartphones to the market.
An other problem by Samsung is Samsung’s own eco-system.
Many Galaxy owners aren’t happy with Samsung because of it’s delay in their own eco-system for software updates.
Since Google releases a new Android version almost every year, people expect Samsung to update their smartphone faster.
A downside in this story is that the most people are content with their smartphone. They are not expecting fast updates, most people even don’t know about newer Android versions. Samsung is also one of the companies that update their own mobile phones the fastest.
