Now, in order for Samsung to sell their latest FLAGSHIP product, they have to pay these slimy cell phone sales reps $25 a phone as a SPIFF. Hardly a good business practice for what is supposed to be great product.
I think it's biggest selling feature is that its' got a big screen. THAT'S IT. That's all it has.
Other than a big screen (not retina class) the OS still has problems with 4.0.4 and 4.1 is not yet out for it. At least for the Sprint version. I'm sure all of these slimy reps that are pushing Samsung products are nervous because the impending iPhone 5 announcement and usually when Apple announces a product, people line up to buy one but they typically line up at Apple Stores rather than the cell phone stores.
certainly an interesting situation.
Just for the record, I HATE going into Cell Phone stores. The sales reps at these stores are typically kids right out of school acting like they know everything and they are typically slime to work with.
I always thought the cell phone industry was trying to figure out how much to charge and they are worse to deal with than the cable/dish companies.
Thank God for Apple Stores where I don't get products rammed down my throat. At least they aren't paid on commission and are paid to sell the right products. I've had Sales Reps at Apple try to sell me on less expensive products because that's all I really needed, I didn't feel like they were trying to push the most expensive product on me.
With these cell phone stores, I feel all they want to do is push a particular product on me and I can smell their little $25 SPIFF mentality.
For those cell phone reps out there, don't FORCE a product down someone's throat that they weren't asking for in the first place.
