Samsung Galaxy S6 Was Failure According To Figures

By  | 

Samsung saw a decline in sales in 2015 and according to the figures the Samsung Galaxy S6 has been something of a failure for the phone maker.

Many fans of Samsung actually frowned upon the Samsung Galaxy S6 when it was launched. A recent study from Kantar that covered 12 months from January 2017 to January 2017 revealed damning reports for new phones.

The study showed that many Samsung users when moving to Samsung from another brand chose the Samsung Galaxy S5 instead of the Samsung Galaxy S6. 26.2% of people moved to the Galaxy S6, while 27.5% chose to go with the Samsung Galaxy S5.

The Samsung Galaxy Note series of handsets only attracted 7.9% of people, who went for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. The phablet however was only available during Q4, but the Note 4 managed to attract only 9.4% of users.

It looks like taking away the removable battery from the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 as a really bad idea of Samsung, along with removing the microSD support. The same argument can be said about the S5 and S6, the capacity of the battery was down to 2, 550mah as opposed to 2,800mah.

So it is looking as though the Samsung Galaxy S6 didn’t go down too well with people for many reasons.

    Of course, it’s a failure = I bought one….
    but, as failures go… It just happened to be the first phone that actually worked.

    Other phones had other issues.
    Some would not receive a call.
    Some would not send a call.
    Ditto for data.
    The cameras worked some times.
    The less they did the longer the battery charge would last.

    The Samsung Galaxy s6 edge+ – actually did – what it said it would do.
    and,
    It kept on doing it thru a bunch of updates and a significant upgrade of it’s OS.

    Sure, it doesn’t have a micro-SD slot… didn’t come with one – I knew it – bought it anyway.
    Sure, the battery charge does or doesn’t hold up very long, depending on what the device has been tasked to do… Keep it lobotomized down to near standby and it’ll snooze along for two daze…. Fire it up as a WiFi hot-spot and you are looking at 15 minutes. But, none of this covert… They advertised a battery capacity – I got that capacity – I was expected to figure out how to use that capacity.

    It comes down to getting what you paid for – and, knowing what you bought to begin with.

    As failures go, this is my best failure to date. At least, it works as sold.
    That’s quite a bit of an improvement over some previous phones.

    Should I be disappointed that my two year old phone is not competitive with newer phones or future phones? why? I assume that the hardware and firmware will improve with time… That’s what the future is for.

    Still, as futures go… there isn’t much out there that makes me want to give up my fully functional phone for a bunch of “we will fix those new/different issues in the next OS” new phones… New is only good – until you figure out what’s wrong with it.

    The Samsung Galaxy s6 edge+ doesn’t try to kill you in your sleep. It doesn’t go psychotic. It isn’t an extra-ordinary security risk… It did not come with everything. What it did not have at the time, I don’t care about now.

    Give me a fully functional failure – any day…
    The new, perfect, future phones never show up any way…. They never have all the bells and whistles that they were supposed to have. The battery life is still too short. The micro-SD slot is never capacitied enough to do the 100s of hours of 4K video that some hog wants. No matter what they crank out.. the market demands always expand to exceed the capacity.
