That is their plan of action. Some don't like it, while others see it as having optionsNow, is it just me who thinks Samsung don't really have a plan of action for the direction of their phones? To me, it seems like they have released every sized phone under the sun in a scatter-gun approach just to see what sticks, and then taken it from there.
Case in point: I went on to their website months ago to see if there was a small, cheap android phone for me to take on my travels. One that if I lost it, dropped it in some beer or accidentally took with me in my swim trunks, then I wouldn't be bothered about buying another one. I found 4 (FOUR!) all with a similar function. I didn't get one in the end, due to indecision on my part and there being too many options. To me, it says 'lack of focus'. But each to their own.That is their plan of action.

That's how I feel.Whatever, typical Samsung MO, don't find it intriguing in the slightest.
While I'm not a fan of Samsung's hardware design/aesthetics, my bigger problem with their devices is related to their software and user experience. I'd take a wholly revamped Samsung UI on their current plastic builds over their current TW skinned monstrosity on a new metal phone every time.
I won't consider another Samsung device, regardless of how great the build materials and hardware is until they fix their UI.
When was the last time anyone camped outside of Argos?I doubt it be a iphone 6 killer, your not going to see people camping outside of the Samsung store or Argos ect for weeks just to buy it.
Also if Samsung want this phone to sell, then i can see them spending millions on advertising coming upto Christmas.
I might be tempted around that time to get myself one, if it does end up being decent step up to the Galaxy S5.
Samsung doesn't care if you're confused, only that you purchase one of their devices. With so many available, chances are good that's exactly what the avg. consumer will do.Sigh Another Galaxy phone? I have seriously lost track. Imagine how confused customers must be walking in a store and trying to chose a Galaxy device and/or tablet. Samsung really needs to focus.
Has nothing to do with what people want and everything to do with putting out a phone that mimmics the iPhone flavor... IMO of course.I guess Sammy is getting the message that people want smaller phones that still have good specs. I'm more of a phablet person but I can see people that would like this.
Maybe he meant Curry's? Or Tesco? Or hell, even a Sainsburry? Samsung doesn't care where it puts an advert to get people to buy their stuff. They'd tattoo a Samsung logo on Richard Hammond's forehead if they could, since that guy is on every other commercial.When was the last time anyone camped outside of Argos?
Makes too much sense.I want another Galaxy Nexus.
The one they produced was SUCH a good phone (at the time). I wouldn't mind if Samsung wanted to throw in a few of their proprietary stuff a la Moto X if they left most of the OS untouched. That would make me buy a Samsung product then.
Agreed. I prefer a Phablet as a Note 3 user and potential Note 4 buyer. But I'm well aware that not everyone wants a mini tablet as a phone.I guess Sammy is getting the message that people want smaller phones that still have good specs.

What they really should do is bring out just 3 smartphone's a year cheap, midrange & highend, with separate name branding instead of calling it Galaxy this and that.Agreed.

Edit: The only problem I have with Samsung is that they need to focus on having 2 flagship phones and that's it. People sign 2 year contracts and I'd hate to buy one of their flagships(S5 in particular) only to have it outdated by the same OEM just a few months later. Granted I'm willing to pay full price for a smartphone, most people are not. At least with the iPhone you won't be "1-upped" by Apple only a few months down the road.
