I can remember when every phone that was not an iphone was dubbed the “iphone killer” at release. Several generations of OEM devices came out looking to compete with Apple’s mega device, but most of these devices just did not add up. I remember even my old HTC Touch Window phone 6 was dubbed the iphone killer. Boy was that a sham. Eventually Google came out with Android which at least stood up to the behemoth that was the iphone, but nothing really cut into Iphone sales until the Galaxy S4. Before you knew it Samsung had become the new top dog.
Now it appears that Samsung may be facing some financial crises that could send the company in a downward spiral. They should be celebrating the success of the Galaxy S5 instead it turns out that a long list of factors has really begin to chip away at Samsung’s profitability.
