Samsung planning strategy conference amidst falling share prices

Samsung may be readying up for a profitable time in the coming months as it launches both the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear, but for investors, good sales and share prices are important all around the year. However, mainly due to disappointing sales of the Galaxy S4, the South Korean manufacturer’s shares have fallen 13% since April, and to address the concerns of investors, Samsung will be holding a strategic conference in November.

This is the first major strategy conference Samsung has held in years, and the company plans to invite more than 400 investors and analysts in order to discuss future plans. The November event will be the first of its kind since Sang-Hoon Lee took over as president of Samsung Electronics, and will see Samsung discussing its long-term business plan, strategy and vision for 2020 with attendees.

3 Reasons.

1) Android sucks. Laggy as hell, very pita to use. Updates takes forever if ever.

2) S4 over S3? Looks the same. People don’t know crap about features. All they know is what a phone looks like. Cheap poor plastic material. You can make all the excuses in the book for plastic, but the fact is, the majority of consumers feel that it is cheap.

3) Too many crappy devices that all look the same. When you have too many options, most people get confused and just stick to what they know best. Apple looks cool.

Also, the phones are way too damn big. Majority of people dont’ want to carry a big ass phone. Only nerds to play games and have no job would what the biggest and the latest.

It’s no wonder you’re not getting new sales. Kinda hard to get new customers when you’re selling a bunch of crap no one wants.

The cause of it is:

- Touchwiz, laggy, useless Apps & features, taking up so much space!
- Glossy Polycarbonate (PLASTIC), Note 3 sort of changed it.
- Too Pricey for people/developed countries.
- Consumers already have a smartphone and not thinking of upgrading to the next gen smartphone.
- Consumers are not satisfied with Samsung mobile devices.

and one more important point is that samsung low down the price by 100-130 $ juzz before releasing a new flagship so the point is that what about the previous customer who want sell his previous fone and get the new flagship he wont get the resale of his fone so he decide to stay with his current fone nly

the main reason for depletion in sales of s4 is due to lack of updates for past devices :)) the same will be with note3

It goes beyond that. Android 4.1 compared to 4.2.2 leaves many people feeling like there is no PUSH to upgrade. When the Galaxy S2 has Jelly Bean, there isn’t a feeling of needing to update to get some spectacular new features.

You may have noticed there are a ton of people with the iPhone 4 around that also have not updated to the 4S or the 5, because there is no compelling reason to in terms of features.

So, what Samsung really NEEDS is for KitKat to bring something really interesting to make people with OLD devices want to upgrade to get those features. They can’t abandon the S3 and Note 2, but the S2 and original Note users should be pushing to upgrade at this point if KitKat won’t be released for those older devices.
