"Is Samsung's smartphone story now over? Not quite yet. It's growth is indeed slowing due largely to disappointing sales of the S4, yet I think Samsung has some exciting stuff up its sleeves. The problem is no one is sure whether these products can really wow investors and consumers."Analysts talk about a pretty wide range of factors involved in the temporary fall of Samsung. On one hand there is the last period's big investment in marketing, rather than research and development, reaching its peek with the release of the Galaxy S4. Samsung also invested in opening brand shops in stores all over the US. On the other hand, the Chinese competitors like Huawei and ZTE Corp are safely rising producing low priced devices that are preferred mainly in China, but gradually also around the world. How all of this works out depends on how Samsung will respond to the situation and what the company's next move will be. We're definitely looking forward to find out.
