As we all have found out, the third quarter has not been kind to plenty of the mobile manufacturers. For Samsung, it was especially bad. Their profit and revenue numbers went down. Despite that though Samsung has proven to still be on top of their game in the smartphone sector.
In this day and age where unlimited information are on our fingertips speed is king. Especially the speed in which information gets to us. That is the 4G LTE was invented, the fourth generation of mobile networks to ensure better data transfer speeds, up to ten times the speed of 3G. The 4G LTE technology then is one of those ‘must have’ technologies. Especially with the speed improvement that they offer, it is not a surprise. Samsung may not have sold as much smartphone as they did last quarter this time around but they did sell enough 4G LTE smartphones to become the second largest vendors of 4G LTE devices losing out only to Apple.
if that is not prove enough that they are still doing quite well in the smartphone industry, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 4 can be a testament to that too. They did not sell as much of these devices as they may want to but Yahoo have released their reports for the year. It turns out that on Yahoo the Samsung Galaxy S5 is the most searched Samsung device of the year on their search engine. The Galaxy S5 was not the top searched item in the search engine though, it took second place after the Apple iPhone 6 mostly due to the bigger screen and form factor. The Galaxy Note 4 came in third after the Galaxy S5.
