 Say what? They do break out their divisions, and the Mobile division is the one that's seen the biggest drops in revenues and profits for several quarters now.
This is actually pretty good news for Samsung.   The last 3 quarters saw them with YOY declines of 30%, 36% and 60% for their operating profits.   So to post a 4% reduction in operating profits is actually a big improvement, considering how horrible they've been doing.   So the S6 probably helped a bit, but not as much as it should have. They couldn't even beat last years results for the same quarter with the disappointing S5 launch/sales.
 Uh, you did read the part where they're talking about packaging, not the products themselves, right?
Great idea.   Apple already asks App developers to follow certain conventions so Apps at least have a somewhat consistent feel regardless of who they came from.   This is along the same lines, except for product packaging.
 Only one? Ford.
 Funny, I was sure I actually mentioned ASP in my original post. Why, yes I did.  No. And neither do you. We do know the overall ASP for Samsung from the previous quarter. It was $200 per phone overall (based on 99 million phones sold), and somewhere around $230 if you only count "smartphones" (of which Samsung claims over 80% of that 99 million sold). Now let me guess. You're going to claim that most phones sold in the US were only high-end phones so you can somehow claim...
 Only at the tip.
 The number of times we see you whining on AI seems directly proportional to how good Apple is doing/bad competitors are doing.  Oh, so now you're picking and choosing numbers? Sorry, but those total sales for Samsung are made up mostly of their low-end junk phones, NOT the S5 or S6. The ridiculously low ASP that Samsung themselves announced is concrete proof of this. You DO know Grade 6 math, don't you? You ARE capable of figuring out something as simple as ASP, right? Or...
 Apple provides sales figures. Everyone else is afraid to. So they have to guess Android sales.
 Did you even read that Kantar article? The Galaxy S5 from last year is OUTSELLING the Galaxy S6 from this year. How can anybody spin this as a positive for Samsung? Even worse, although Samsung holds #2 and #3, combined they aren't even close to the #1 selling iPhone. This isn't a photo finish between 3 top devices. This is a slaughter by the iPhone with the S5 and S6 fighting over table scraps.
