Park Geun-hye

Yes, I have the same position as the lawyers. I hope this trial truly frees former President Park of fault and lets her be remembered as a president who lived a life devoted to her country.feedback

Yoo Young-ha

I will say afterward. There was no reason for President Park to force companies to donate money which she was unable to use for herself.feedback

Lee Jae-Bong

I am here to witness a new chapter of history being unfurled. I think Park must be punished thoroughly and never be pardoned so that such a bad thing may never happen again.feedback

Lee Won-Seok

The accused Park Guen-Hye, in collusion with her friend Choi Soon-Sil, let Choi, who had no official position, intervene in state affairs ... and they abused power and pressured business companies to offer bribes, thus taking private gains.feedback

Kim Se-Yun

What is your occupation, the accused Park Geun-Hye? I don't have any occupation.feedback

Jeff Glueck - Foursquare

The interesting thing about it is everyone who's not Facebook and Google is pretty much using our platform. We are one of only three companies in the world that can recognize, across the world, when phones walk in and out of these places. And if you look at all our paying customers, it's Apple, it's Microsoft, it's Snap, it's Twitter, it's Uber, it's Pinterest, it's Samsung, and 100,000 other companies.feedback

Dhruv Ratra

Wal-Mart and Amazon are the most notable examples in the recent past. Samsung, Microsoft, Google, Facebook all face the issues of endemic corruption and draconian tax laws [in a] culturally unfamiliar territory.feedback

Bruce Schneier

We'll need new security standards when hackers go after the Internet of Things.feedback

Kyle Brown - Samsung

Samsung Pay is one of our key foundations for our services strategy for 2017, along with Bixby, Samsung Connect and Samsung Health.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

Samsung Pay's primary competition is Android Pay and Samsung will need to offer some very attractive incentives to users if it wants to compete. Even more of a challenge will be getting existing Android Pay users to start using Samsung Pay – it is hard to see why someone would want to switch at present. Mobile payments have taken off more slowly than expected, but there are encouraging signs of progress. In its latest earnings call Apple revealed that Apple Pay transactions had grown 450% year on year and it has previously stated that one million users have signed up on a weekly basis.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

The arrival of Samsung Pay gives consumers even more choice on how they can make payments. The UK is already a strong market when it comes to contactless payments and the extensive payment infrastructure means that it is a strategic market for any company looking to launch mobile payments. There have already been many millions of transactions on the TfL network. As consumers become more aware of being able to pay with their smartphones the number of transactions will grow – particularly for low-cost items such as buying a cup of coffee.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

Samsung is determined to get consumers to think of it as more than just a company that makes devices. Samsung Pay is just one of several initiatives where it is trying to add value to its products while establishing an ongoing relationship with its customers over the lifetime of a device.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

Taking risks with battery technology can bite you. I would say that experience has taught me to always remain sceptical. Let's see if it happens would be my view.feedback

Linda Sui - Strategy Analytics

Samsung was still gearing up for the launch of its new Galaxy S8 portfolio, but managed to get two models in the top five during Q1 2017. The Galaxy J3 captured 2 percent global smartphone market share and fourth place, while Galaxy J5 took 1 percent global share to become the world's fifth most popular model. Samsung's J3 and J5 are midrange devices that sell very well across Europe and Asia and they helped to offset Samsung's troubles with the Note 7 battery fiasco in the quarter.feedback

Park Ju-gun - CEO Score

It appears that Samsung made the changes at a smallest possible scale in order to ensure that its business operations keep running.feedback

Kim Woochan

Chaebol family control as we know it could end with this generation.feedback

Ross Gerber

Their services business has a lot of risk to it from other competitors like Netflix and Spotify and Samsung and all the other players. And they have all this cash, and all they can come up with is the same playbook, which is buy back stock and pay dividends. It's time for Tim Cook to spend the money.feedback

Ross Gerber

Their services business has a lot of risk to it from other companies like Netflix and Spotify and Samsung and all the other players. And they have all this cash, and all they can come up with is the same playbook, which is buy back stock and pay dividends. Buy something, please. Go out and do something aggressive. It's time to put the heat on Tim Cook. It should be illegal to have $250 billion dollars in cash and not utilize it – that is what you're supposed to do as CEO.feedback

SK Kim - Daiwa Capital Markets

We expect earnings improvement for all business segments in 2Q17, and the strong memory price to continue. In mobile, a meaningful earnings improvement is expected from 2Q17 driven by expanding sales of GS8. According to our research, pre-sales of GS8 units in the U.S. is 20 percent higher than for GS7. In display, despite increased costs for the new OLED capacity, OLED will likely drive earnings in 2H17.feedback

Neil Campling - Northern Trust

Much of the future growth for ams AG is centered on the combination of unit and $ content opportunities on a range of leading consumer smartphone platforms, with ams well positioned across the three leading vendors Apple, Samsung and Huawei, but it is not the only growth driver.feedback

Tim Baxter - Samsung

At Samsung, we believe it is a privilege to make groundbreaking products that are enjoyed by millions, and have recommitted ourselves to innovate, not only with new products and services, but also in process. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are a result of that recommitment and the market has responded – with a more than 30 percent year-over-year growth in pre-orders versus the record pre-orders we had with Galaxy S7, making it our best ever.feedback

Mingi Hyun - Samsung Bioepis

Through relentless process innovation and an uncompromising commitment to quality, we remain committed to advancing one of the industry's strongest biosimilar pipelines.feedback

Bob O'Donnell

What's great about it is, it's got a great hand feel … it really does make a difference. They've had a few glitches on the software early on, but it's early days and I think we will see some improvements … coming as well. We're not going to really know for a couple of months, to be honest with you, how safe and how reliable it is.feedback

Daniel Yoo - Kiwoom Securities

I think that the phone is perceived as the next generation phone, the quality seems to be excellent ... a lot of things have been resolved.feedback

Jim Cramer

Yes, both Incyte and its partner Eli Lilly did deserve to go down on the news. But at these levels, I think these stocks are worth buying. Incyte for speculation, Lilly as a longer-term investment. Just be careful, you might get a chance to buy some Incyte even lower because once the company prices the big secondary offering that so many people are expecting, it has yet to occur. Selling because of European politics has been a mistake endlessly.feedback

Jim Cramer

This year, though, because Apple and Samsung both have new, hot smartphones, the cellphone oriented chipmakers have gotten their mojo back, and that means AMD's stock has more competition. Unlike Coke, unlike McDonald's, unlike Wal-Mart, the fact that IBM's turn hasn't happened yet since [CEO Ginny] Rometty took over in 2012, makes me feel that if they don't get it right this year, then maybe the shareholder base, perhaps even largest shareholder Warren Buffett, will demand to bring in a new leader who can finally get the job done.feedback

Jessica Dolcourt - CNET

If somebody has their heart set on two cameras, this device doesn't have it. The proof is in the pudding if the phones survive without incident for three months.feedback

Mark Spoonauer - Tom's Guide

What happened to the Galaxy Note raised questions about Samsung phones in general. I don't think there's any harm in waiting to make sure that everything is safe with this phone.feedback

William McGeveran

Even if you're not going to do work of hacking way through policy, it's generally a good principle not to have features activated on services if you don't use those features. You can bet that you are reducing the overall amount of data collection by doing that.feedback

Koh Dong-jin - Samsung

It's still a bit early, but initial response to the pre-orders that have begun at various places across the world have been better than expected.feedback

Koh Dong-jin - Samsung

We're sincerely preparing for the Chinese market with Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Even if it takes time, we will stay calm and have time to recover the Chinese market.feedback

Koh Dong-jin - Samsung

As the person in charge, I can confidently assure you that the Galaxy S8 is a product that consumers can safely use without having any concerns, as we have introduced every possible way of checking the quality of the batteries, not only with the company that makes those batteries, but also with the phone manufacturers.feedback

Park Jung-hoon - HDC Asset Management

People are starting to worry whether Samsung can repeat these kinds of numbers next year. There's no reason to be the first to jump off, but those worries will grow as time passes.feedback

Richard Windsor

Bixby falls even before its first hurdle. Samsung's delay in the roll-out of Bixby is a strong indication of just how far behind Samsung is when it comes to artificial intelligence.feedback

John Vinh - Pacific Crest Securities

We think Samsung looks to integrate semiconductors to save costs, but Apple is different as it only looks to integrate components if it believes it can get performance benefits to differentiate its products.feedback

Geoff Blaber - CCS Insight

I think that what this underlines is the fact that Samsung is a hardware company and obviously it is trying hard to make this transition to software and services.feedback

Todd Rosenbluth

But investors are wrong in not looking internationally. The fund gives investors exposure to excellent technology companies that happen to be outside the U.S. These are strong global brands. Investors should think of the overall allocation. The global economy will be a tailwind for large-cap technology stocks like SAP and Samsung. And they're also more stable than smaller stocks.feedback

Erik Gordon

Asking the right question as an activist shareholder is not enough, if you do not have a stick available to you, you become like a professor who has no power. People answer your question cause your technique might work.feedback

Erik Gordon

The questions and techniques activist shareholders developed in the U.S. pertain to how investors value companies universally. The question of whether BHP is undervalued applies whether the company is Australian or American.feedback

Song Eun-jeong

Both the home appliances and the TV market will enter a seasonally strong period during the second quarter.feedback

Song Eun-jeong

Generally speaking I think the improved product mix in appliances and televisions and the company's efforts to sell high-end products lifted profits.feedback

Yves Behar

This was the magical element for us. It's hard to develop - the sensors themselves have to be invisible so you cannot see an aperture. And it also has to be low-energy.feedback

Yves Behar

Some of the art was commissioned especially for this, and some has been specifically scaled by the artists so the images look good in this ratio.feedback

Yves Behar

We showed Samsung an idea which was not about how thin we could make the TV or stand, because this is how tech is usually designed. We took a counterpoint to that. We could make it thicker, make it more intelligent, and make it fit more into the home. It's a counter-intuitive approach to designing a TV. The real key was integrating sensors in the TV.feedback

Tom Kang - Counterpoint

We think the S8 series will definitely be a strong flagship for Samsung and help it gain back market share. The launch of the fully revamped iPhone 8 will also be threatening. But there is also pent up demand for Samsung devices rolling over from last year due to the disappearance of the Note 7. So those 2 factors will balance out.feedback

Ben Silbermann

Computer vision technology is going to be a big deal. Our integration is going to let you take a photo and then find pins that are relevant.feedback

David Hsieh - IHS

Apple has ordered 70 million units of OLED panels from Samsung this year, while Samsung is preparing to churn out as many as 95 million for Apple in 2017, in case demand exceeds expectations. It is also possible that some of these 70 million handsets will not be shipped to customers this year and be carried over to next year depending on demand.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

That's a big bet that its phones will justify a higher price, whereas it could have used these new phones as a way to drive higher sales after a couple of years of stagnation.feedback

Brian White - Drexel Hamilton

I do expect the Chinese to knock off Samsung and that's probably going to be Huawei. I see it as a Huawei-Apple fight in the future, Samsung and probably some smaller competitors underneath them. Over the next three to five years some smartphone handset makers will go by the wayside.feedback

Theresa May

The United Kingdom is leaving the European Union. This is an historic moment from which there can be no turning back. We should work together to minimise disruption and give as much certainty as possible. Weakening our cooperation for the prosperity and protection of our citizens would be a costly mistake.feedback

D.J. Koh - Samsung

The Galaxy S8 is our testament to regaining your trust by redefining what's possible in safety and marks a new milestone in Samsung's smartphone legacy.feedback

Jefferson Wang

We are seeing some great design innovation from Samsung this year and expect the same from Apple.feedback

Ian Fogg - IHS

Samsung's initial Bixby implementation falls short of its goal of being a comprehensive AI assistant because of weak app integration and limited voice compatibility.feedback

Hans Tung - GGV Capital

It is very difficult to come up with a phone that will wow consumers greatly. A company like Apple that makes the hardware software together can really differentiate, Samsung cannot. If all this is not seamlessly integrated, you will not offer a superior consumer experience and that's what we need to look for from all these phone companies right now.feedback

InJong Rhee - Samsung

The smartphone has become the central point for the modern mobile professional, and when giving a presentation or editing documents remotely, it means they can work effectively using just their smartphone. We developed Samsung DeX with the highly mobile worker in mind, giving them a convenient and flexible desktop experience. With Samsung DeX, enterprise users can also be assured their smartphone and data is protected by the Samsung Knox security platform built into the smartphone. Samsung DeX redefines what a smartphone can do to keep mobile workers productive.feedback

Thomas Cooke

The consumer is the big winner in all of this. We have genuine first class competition among major players.feedback

Theresa May

We are one great union of people and nations with a proud history and a bright future. And now that the decision to leave has been made – and the process is underway – it is time to come together. For this great national moment needs a great national effort, an effort to shape a stronger future for Britain.feedback

Eric Schiffer

If you talk about safety, it presupposes a rationale for why, unconsciously – and they know this; and they also know the media will pick up that narrative. Highlighting the safety issue at this point will cause the other narrative to be recycled, so they have elected to suppress and hope.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

If something were to go wrong, it will wreck any confidence that they can produce a safe device.feedback

Kim Kyung-soo

I think Park would stay in a better facility. And she will use a bigger cell than those of others. It will be difficult for (Park's side) to insist they need an outsider to come in and do her hair.feedback

Ishan Dutt - Canalys

This phone really can't afford to have issues. It seems to be perhaps not the best step in terms of PR to be even … overshadowing (the S8 launch and) also reminding people about the Note 7 at a time when the focus really should be on the new device and starting afresh.feedback

Bryan Ma - International Data Corporation

Completely baffling, In their defense, if it's about helping the environment, … maybe they're getting a little bit of money out of it? But at the end of the day, it's a perception thing. Why remind people about it again?feedback

Bryan Ma - International Data Corporation

They've talked about it but we need to see it in action. We need to see how well it executes, we need to see how the software works. The bigger thing to watch out for is the Viv acquisition that they made. The problem is, it hasn't been integrated yet. They just made that acquisition … Right now, we can't get too carried away with how Bixby's going to be. I'll believe it when I see it, probably later this year or in the next year.feedback

Bryan Ma - International Data Corporation

I think ultimately, this is going to be something that will get Samsung back on its feet after the problems of last year. The challenge, however, is going to be Apple. Apple's got a phone that, if you believe the rumor mill, is going to be a tremendous blockbuster later this year.feedback

Bryan Ma - International Data Corporation

In that sense, Samsung still has quite a bit of an uphill battle to go.feedback

Kim Kyung-soo

I think Park would stay in a better facility. Getting your hair permed or done by someone from outside the facility is against equality among inmates. It will be difficult for (Park's side) to insist they need an outsider to come in and do her hair. She is 65 and a woman, so in that regard she will be taken care of, but in the meantime she will be going through thorough investigations while being in there despite her age and status as a former president.feedback

D.J. Koh - Samsung

The Samsung Galaxy S8 ushers in a new era of smartphone design and fantastic new services, opening up new ways to experience the world.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

Note 7 definitely did some damage to the Samsung brand, especially for people who had little or no personal experience with Samsung devices. But as long as the S8 does well and doesn't suffer from any of the same problems, the memories of the Note 7 issues will fade and Samsung will recover well.feedback

Christopher Robinson - Lux Research

Initial sales of the S8 may appear slow compared to what was typical for previous model releases. In other words, smaller initial sales spike.feedback

Thomas Husson - Forrester Research

The brand lost prestige and consumer trust with the debacle of the Galaxy Note 7. The launch of Samsung's new flagship smartphone is thus key for the brand, even though it has managed to reduce its business dependency on smartphones, contrary to Apple. The launch of the new device must be perfectly executed for Samsung to gain innovation leadership and to gain market share in the high-end smartphone segment.feedback

Thomas Husson - Forrester Research

We'll see how Samsung leverages its acquisition of Viv over time, but I think the brand will struggle to compete in the longer term with the broader digital ecosystems from Google, Amazon or Apple. Samsung will have to work much more closely with third-party brands and developers to differentiate Bixby from other virtual assistants.feedback

Lewis Larsen - Lattice Energy

The additional measures Samsung has taken should certainly improve battery safety and durability. These are most definitely not just cosmetic steps 'for show.feedback

Thomas Husson - Forrester Research

The launch of the new device must be perfectly executed for Samsung to gain innovation leadership and to gain market share in the high-end smartphone segment. I think the brand will struggle to compete in the longer term with the broader digital ecosystems from Google, Amazon or Apple.feedback

Venkat Viswanathan - Carnegie

How confident are they that they can actually find a faulty cell with these additional checks. It's sort of finding a needle in a haystack.feedback

Bryan Ma - International Data Corporation

This is one of those decisions that make you stop and scratch your head. The last thing they need in the run-up to the S8 launch is another reminder to the world about what happened with the Note 7.feedback

Kristopher Carter - Uber

We looked at the headlines. Different companies, different technologies. It's sort of like how when Samsung had a battery issue, we didn't all put our iPhones in the trash.feedback

Jude Lee - Greenpeace

People around the world signed petitions, emailed Samsung's CEO, demonstrated in cities around the world, and finally Samsung has listened. This is major win for everyone that took action, and a step towards shifting the way we produce and dispose of electronics.feedback

Kwon Oh-hyun - Samsung

I'm sorry for the scandal. I apologise once again for the mistake with the Note 7 last year. It was a failure that arose from trying new technology. It was a donation that was traditional and customary. The auditing committee found it was executed through normal procedures.feedback

Jean-Claude Biver

It's a revolution. It will change the face of watchmaking. Apple, Samsung, LG – they cannot follow us because they don't have the mechanical movements. That's our way to escape the competition. What we have invented is not just for the Connected watch. The modular construction can be for a normal watch, too. You buy a three-hand watch, and one day you add the tourbillon module. This is the revolution.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

It is a challenge but this is the dance Samsung has to do in terms of its relationship with Google, where it has an agreement as a result of licensing Android to support certain features.feedback

InJong Rhee - Samsung

Starting with our smartphones, Bixby will be gradually applied to all our appliances. In the future you would be able to control your air conditioner or TV through Bixby. Since Bixby will be implemented in the cloud, as long as a device has an internet connection and simple circuitry to receive voice inputs, it will be able to connect with Bixby. As the Bixby ecosystem grows, we believe Bixby will evolve from a smartphone interface to an interface for your life.feedback

Donald Robert Sadoway

I don't expect that these were wireless headphones. If they're both plugged in taking audio and a current, my suspicion is there was a malfunction in the electronics. When I looked at what was happening with Samsung, it seemed to me those phones were catching fire when they were plugged in and being charged. That means current into battery is driving some other reaction that ultimately leads to fire. When it functions properly it's fine, but when it malfunctions it's got all the ingredients for ignition and full-blown fire.feedback

Hwang Kyo-Ahn

After much consideration, I reached a conclusion that I cannot put off or neglect the management of the current national crises and of state affairs. And I judged that it is not appropriate that I run in the presidential election, for the sake of state stabilisation and fair management of the presidential vote.feedback

Park Geun-hye

Although it will take time, I believe the truth will certainly come out.feedback

Lee Jung-mi

President Park impaired the spirit of democracy and the rule of law.feedback

Daniel Yoo - Kiwoom Securities

The Korean market is trading at an 8 percent equity risk premium, this is the highest level ever in Korean history.feedback

Daniel Yoo - Kiwoom Securities

I don't know how long it will take for chaebols to restructure and reform, but nevertheless, it's going in the right direction, as we can see from Lee's prosecution.feedback

Kim Yong-Deok

We are in a very serious situation where we must elect the next president by May the 9th at the latest. It is concerning that the conflict we've seen might now be aggravated due to the election or that the election atmosphere might get overheated.feedback

Chung Tae-ho

The case couldn't have been any clearer. With this verdict, the Constitutional Court has sent an unequivocal warning to the people in power not to take advantage of their positions and seek personal gains.feedback

Kim Seon-taek

It was a such an obvious case that there was no room for the court to rule other than impeaching the president. Through the 'Choi-gate' investigation, we found serious violations of laws and evidence of meddling with law and order of the nation by both Choi Soon-sil and Park Geun-hye.feedback

Lee Jung-mi

The president violated the Constitution and South Korean law by letting Choi Soon-sil get involved in government affairs. This is a violation of constitutional democracy.feedback

Michael Hayden

There are people out there that you want us to spy on. You want us to have the ability to actually turn on that listening device inside the TV to learn that person's intentions. This is a wonderful capability.feedback

Jay Y. Lee - Samsung

I apologise to the South Korean people for revealing something which is not positive through this incident.feedback

Troy Stangarone

If Samsung's Lee is convicted and receives more than a suspended sentence, it would be a significant step in demonstrating that the court system has evolved to the point where it can prosecute white collar crime cases against chaebol heirs.feedback

Troy Stangarone

One of the key potential pieces of evidence will be the notes of (Samsung Electronics President) Park Sang-jin. He had taken notes of his meeting with Choi and the prosecution appears to have those notes. How Park Sang-jin's notes are worded and what they might lead to will indicate whether this was a case of bribery or an issue of extortion.feedback

Michael Costello - Cisco Systems

Between the time that we notified them and the release date, it was approximately one line of code per week.feedback

Varun Badhwar

Yes, I think anything connected to the internet is hackable, is something that can be compromised and ultimately you've got to be mindful of where you want your devices placed inside of your homes, offices and across your personal life.feedback

Will Donaldson

They're tapping into cars. They're tapping into home TVs. They're tapping into every device that you would carry that has a battery in it basically. Because of that, it's so prevalent. There's just so many holes. We're just getting started looking at them. I think Samsung was one of them that they listed, that they could turn it on remotely but it wouldn't put the power light on. So anybody in that room would then be discussing or talking and being monitored without their knowledge or consent.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

In isolation, this would come and go without problems, but now it's another reason for Samsung to be in the headlines.feedback

Andy Yen - Central Intelligence Agency

The exploitation of user endpoints (mobile phones, personal computers, etc) is actually not a new technique, but one that has existed since the first malware was created. This unfortunately is not something that cryptography is designed to defend against, as encryption by itself cannot guarantee the security of end-user devices.feedback

Andy Yen - Central Intelligence Agency

The core cryptographic algorithms and techniques used by ProtonMail and other encrypted services remain secure.feedback

Yuanqing Yang - Lenovo Group

I don't see that risk because I think the China-U.S. relationship is the most important relationship in the world, we need each other.feedback

William Lu

I think more important is not adding more countries for now, but going deep in each country. I think the Gionee brand is not ready to enter in U.S. or Europe, but if we partner with local brands and offer products with them and work with them to understand this market, then we might be able to. For the developed markets, we have a plan to go step by step and not rush.feedback

Sky Li - Oppo

Our experience in these markets will help us better understand consumer behavior and prepare us for future expansions.feedback

Sky Li - Oppo

Recently we have expanded into a number of carrier led markets, such as Taiwan, Singapore, Australia and most recently, New Zealand. The response to date has been extremely encouraging. In Singapore we're now number 3 in the market. Likewise in Australia we have signed agreements with major carriers including Vodafone, Virgin and Optus and are experiencing triple digit growth.feedback

Henry Carr

In my judgment, AbbVie would not have invested the considerable resources that this trial has required unless there was a good commercial reason to resist the declarations.feedback

Henry Carr

I now turn to the question of spin-off value. The Claimants submit that the declarations will be influential in other European Courts and tribunals, and will make it more difficult for AbbVie to obtain preliminary injunctions, particularly in jurisdictions where validity cannot be challenged whilst patents are under opposition in the EPO (European Patent Office).feedback

Mingi Hyun - Samsung Bioepis

We welcome the court's judgment. At Samsung Bioepis, we remain committed to driving positive change in the healthcare system through the development of affordable, high-quality biosimilars.feedback

Geoffrey Cain

The thing about Samsung is, it's a giant wound-up ball of yarn of cross-holdings. The setup is so complicated that sometimes I wonder if a group of smart people could find a way to tug at the right connection and find a way to loosen it up, to unravel it a bit, just to see if they could pull it away from the company.feedback

Moon Jae-in

We should not miss this opportunity to cut the corrupt ties between politics and businesses. Only when Samsung repents its collusion with politics and its anti-market activities, like seeking political favors, can it become stronger. They forgot their fathers' and grandfathers' entrepreneurship, and chose to make easy money.feedback

Kim Sang-jo

To South Koreans, chaebol have two faces. On one hand, chaebol symbolize corrupt ties between business and politics, so people call for reforming chaebol. On the other hand, the economy is so heavily dependent on chaebol that people fear that shaking them too much might make them collapse.feedback

Chang Sea-jin

The mission right now is to save Jay Y. Lee. It's like 'Saving Private Ryan.feedback

Kim Sang-jo

South Korean people, have never had a chance to learn how a modern globalized company should be run.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

I don't think people will get this, the point is this has become the story of the show and quite frankly it's a damning indictment of the state of the smartphone market today. It's characterized by a sea of sameness, lots of rectangular devices and Nokia too have the same problem because they are trying to get back to the market with a device like this which is their Android phone and, to be honest, if that's all they'd announced, it wouldn't have got many column inches at all.feedback

Luis Peixe

I would say that it is a project that comes from the heart, because it's very much part of the mobile phone industry. It was one of the best selling devices in the history of mobile phones and this is a new version of that product.feedback

Lei Jun - Xiaomi

The ability to create its own chipsets is the pinnacle achievement for any smartphone company.feedback

Hideyuki Furumi - Sony

The Sony super slow-motion capability enables you to capture life in impressive slow-motion detail that is so precise it will reveal the things beyond the human vision. With the super slow-motion, every day moments that happen in the blink of an eye, can become stunning visual memories – a cat leaping in the air for play, a humming bird in flight or a balloon bursting in mid-air, to name a few. You can dramatise just about everything for any moment, with the super slow-motion.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

I absolutely think Samsung is going to have a huge impact on the market. I think it's going be the biggest launch they have ever done. I think it's going to be an extremely impressive device and I think it must be a very daunting prospect to all of the competitors in this Android market where competing there is really, really tough. And that's before you even start going head-to-head with the iPhone.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

This year has presented an unexpected window of opportunity for Samsung's rivals to position their new devices in the limelight. It's a unique chance to get airtime before the Samsung marketing freight train grabs all the headlines when the widely anticipated Galaxy S8 breaks cover.feedback

Jean-Daniel Ayme - Samsung

Our customers are expecting great things from us and we wanted to tell them that we can do great things for them as we have always done. And we promised them today that we can do great things in the tablet segment and we also gave them a hint that we can do many more things in other segments.feedback

Richard Yu

The competition is feisty but I think we have a good chance.feedback

Arto Nummela

In the coming years we believe we are going to be one of the top players in the smartphone market globally. I think because Nokia as a brand is known absolutely everywhere and that gives us opportunity to go global immediately and that's what we are going to do. Awareness is huge and everybody knows Nokia globally, there's no question about it. There hasn't been Nokia smartphone in the market for a while, still it's one of the top preferences. And now when we combine Android, finally in Nokia, there is going to be an explosion in demand.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

Having Foxconn as one of its backers gives HMD Global an advantage of some rivals. As the biggest contract phone manufacturer in the world it can offer scale advantages and access to the latest technology which should help HMD Global to offer strong devices in the fiercely competitive Android smartphone market.feedback

Arto Nummela

We are absolutely laser focused on partnership with Google. We are driving the elements bothering consumer like security and software updates. And they hate clutter and that's why we took this approach.feedback

Patrick Moorhead

First, Samsung expended many resources to find the root cause of the Note7 issues and change their processes to assure it won't happen again. Secondly, the expectation is that Apple will really extend themselves to make the next iPhone dramatically different, so Samsung benefits from the extra time.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

The P10 is an even more refined flagship smartphone for Huawei and builds on the P9 which was a pivotal device in establishing Huawei as a credible high end phone maker. It is clear that Huawei has huge ambitions and this device coupled with other devices such as the Mate 9 will certainly help cement its position as the clear number 3 in the smartphone space.feedback

Ramon Llamas

In the process of addressing the situation, I think Samsung buys back some of the good will with consumers. What people want is an assurance that it doesn't happen again.feedback

Jeremy Daniels

We are proud of what we bought to market with the G5. What it didn't do was appeal to the masses.feedback

Jeremy Daniels

With the G6, it was Important to make a product this time with mass appeal and to make sure we had strong aesthetics.feedback

Frank Lee

We started by placing these two (sources) as far apart as possible and then built the phone around it. What's important for them is to make sure that they present to their subscribers a quality, stable product. This caught the entire market off-guard.feedback

Steve Cistulli - TCL Communications

We can compete with Apple and Samsung directly in the enterprise market. We are going to use this device, to break the armor and it's our way in, once you have a way in you can get the mind share and hearts of those people.feedback

Lee Hee-beom

With Pyongchang 2018 and Beijing 2022, winter sports will move from Europe and North American to Asia. We will have more sports fans among Asians because of Pyeongchang 2018 and Beijing 2022. Samsung has already committed to sponsoring the IOC and the Pyeongchang organizing committee. Even with the recent scandal, I don't think (the Olympic sponsorship) will be affected. We already have the agreements, and Samsung has already donated and has agreed to sponsor (the Olympics). So I don't think it will be affected.feedback

Lee Ji-soo

It might be a good chance for them enhance their corporate governance system. They have been relying too much on this family control system for many decades, so this might be a good chance for professional managers to actually run the empire.feedback

Park Geun-hye

The arrest of Lee Jae-young should provide a momentum for fundamental changes to end the collusion between the government and businesses, and reform the chaebol.feedback

Cho Chang-hoon

With the owner of the company being arrested, it will mean not only financial losses for Samsung, but also social costs as well. However, with this South Korea is showing that it will not accept wrongdoing. So, in the long term, there's a chance that South Korea's credibility will be raised.feedback

Jay Y. Lee - Samsung

He doesn't get into every business decision, but he's the one who has to sign off on major investments or acquisitions ... That's why he can't easily be replaced.feedback

Patrick Moorhead

While there was nothing positive about the news, there was one reprieve for Samsung – Lee is not the global face of the brand. Mr. Lee, globally, isn't aligned with the global brand and consumers, and he's not really involved in the day-to-day activities.feedback

Jeong-ho Roh

From a legal perspective, he has, in the eyes of the prosecution, committed a crime, which is legally punishable. And he will be held accountable for this. This is the entire process we're seeing right now, that is the process of establishing the rule of law in (South) Korea.feedback

Scott Seaman - Eurasia Group

Lee's arrest increases the risk that additional evidence will come to light that Samsung paid Park's confidante, Choi Soon-sil, in return for the government's help in securing approval for a merger in 2015 of Samsung C&T Corporation and a sister firm, Cheil Industries.feedback

Kim Kyoung-soo

We hope it marks a beginning to end our society's evil practice of cozy ties between government and corporations and move towards a fair country.feedback

Margaret Yang - CMC Markets

The future outlook is clouded by rising political uncertainties and waves of anti-globalization sentiments from the U.S. and Europe. As U.S. reaches full employment and approaches closer to the Fed's inflation target, a tighter Federal monetary policy is expected to lead to a stronger US dollar in the months ahead. This might worry investors.feedback

Kim Yong-serk

It is not like Samsung's business will be grinding to a halt. There are many smart people at the company. Samsung presidents are evaluated on an annual basis, so they cannot make bold bets about the future. They need a chairman when making long-term investment decisions.feedback

Anshul Gupta - Gartner

Huawei is poised to reduce the gap further with the No. 2 global smartphone vendor.feedback

Jim Cramer

What is really driving the stock of Apple is something quite different. A realization that Apple's worldwide sales are coming in better than expected, its service revenue stream is on fire and its design and manufacturing supremacy is leaving long-time competitor Samsung in the dust. I say you can trade the metal stocks, but not invest in them.feedback

Bryce Boland - FireEye

What's needed here is oversight. Some cases may be legitimate, such as devices that need to be modified to prevent forest fires or human deaths; others might be more difficult to assess.feedback

Jay Y. Lee - Samsung

I will once again tell the truth to the special prosecution.feedback

Stefano Zanero

(The Samsung case) is exactly an example of how devices ... are no longer objects we own, but rather services we've subscribed to and which can be revoked at a moment's notice.feedback

Mahbubul Alam

With power comes responsibility. It's a new power that the device manufacturers and telcos have. How they exercise their responsibility is very important.feedback

Emma Wright - Kemp Little

This ... is an extremely useful way of providing updates on devices without users having to take it in to a store.feedback

Jeong Marn-ki

We ask that the industry shares the view that making efforts to ensure safety is equally as critical as developing new products through technological innovation.feedback

Jay Yoo

Of course costs would rise, but if they don't do that they would get hit with tariffs.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

You know, I think there are parts of this that are on a good trajectory, and parts where we're a little behind, where we would want to be. I think Samsung shipping 5 million Gear VRs – that's their product, not ours, but we build technology that powers it. I think that's quite a good result, and one that we're very happy with. It just shows how strong of a company that Samsung is, being able to build these products and sell them through into the world.feedback

Luca Maestri

We were encouraged by our performance in China because it was clearly an improvement over the last couple of quarters. In mainland China in particular, our revenue was flat and actually grew in constant currency terms. Clearly, this issue of the strong dollar doesn't help us.feedback

Jay Ringgold

They tell everyone its voluntary. That's like a store saying, You can have this have this candy bar if you want,' but then they say, We're still going to arrest you if you walk out with it'. We live in a free country, we don't have to be forced beyond our will.feedback

Jack Estes

A number of them know me as a little bit of a maverick. I regularly wear pants printed with dogs and whales ... I'm not the same type of buttoned-down businessman that you see in stock pictures. Some people have said I'm tilting at windmills, but no complaints from clients. I have a somewhat healthy disrespect of authority. I'm a Linux guy. There's a certain ethos that goes with the champions of each brand. I'm into sharing the knowledge.feedback

John Jackson

Samsung is looking to make sure it takes care of Samsung above all else, and saying safety is their concern would be a big thing for them to say. Why you would you look unfavorably upon someone who says they're looking out for you? They just want it to go away, they want it to be behind them ... I want to make my own decision.feedback

Zack Cernok

Very few people have reached out and heard our side of the story.feedback

Zack Cernok

The main reason is not just because it's a great phone. Yes, it is. But we feel that Samsung put us in an unfair predicament. I have never been a tech enthusiast, until after this phone came out and the recall started happening. That is what turned me on to tech.feedback

Josh Todd - Localytics

It looks like it has the potential to be a strong competitor to the likes of Apple and Samsung.feedback

Elliot F. Kaye

Consumers expect more power from a smaller battery that charges faster and discharges more slowly. Companies are under a lot of pressure to meet this performance demand. Industry needs to learn from this experience and improve consumer safety by putting more safeguards in place during the design and manufacturing stages to ensure that technologies run by lithium-ion batteries deliver their benefits without the serious safety risks.feedback

Francisco Jeronimo

What's been difficult for LG is growing the brand awareness that drives the demand from consumers.feedback

Francisco Jeronimo

Even if this is one of the best devices at MWC, I don't see it changing the fortunes for LG.feedback

Ric Spooner - CMC Markets

Unwinding free trade agreements and imposing border taxes is seen by markets as a negative for the dollar, which is not being helped by statements from the U.S. Treasury Secretary about it being overvalued.feedback

Naeem Aslam - AvaTrade

Investors are nervous due to Trump's protectionism policies and their hope is that his tax cut policies could perhaps save the day for them.feedback

Koh Dong-jin - Samsung

Taking this incident as an opportunity, we have strengthened our determination. From now on, we will give product quality and customer safety top priority.feedback

Koh Dong-jin - Samsung

We suggested that the Note 7 has innovations and a compact design and a 3500 mAh (battery) but we did not know how to make the separators within (the battery) or how many millimeters thick they should be.feedback

Park Chul Wan

Samsung said the weaknesses could make the phone prone to catch fire. That I understand, but what did trigger fires in such conditions? Did they discuss if there is another cause? No.feedback

Kim Yong-serk

Samsung may have given a really high target for its battery capacity to suppliers, as consumers demand longer battery life. Its waterproof feature may have prevented heat from dissipating.feedback

Song Myung-sup - HI Investment & Securities

Consumers will not be reluctant to buy the S8, expected in April or May, only if Samsung clearly finds out what caused the fires.feedback

Yasuo Naruke - Toshiba

It used to be said we were two years behind Samsung (in 3D chips). But we were faster in (64-layer chip) sample shipments, so we believe we've caught up with Samsung technology-wise.feedback

Liam K. Griffin - Skyworks

We launched multiple devices across Samsung's entire portfolio and gained momentum in China, with key wins at market leaders Oppo, Vivo, Meizu and Xiaomi. All of these wins were captured by resulting the growing complexity and performance requirements inherent in today's advanced mobile architectures.feedback

Lee Kyu-chul

We will consider necessary measures and continue with the investigation without wavering.feedback

Janet L. Yellen - Federal Reserve System

Right now our foot is still pressing on the gas pedal, though, as I noted, we have eased back a bit.feedback

Kathy Lien - BK Asset Management

Unless Donald Trump attacks the dollar again on Friday, we have seen the end to a month of losses in the greenback.feedback

Daniel Yoo - Kiwoom Securities

The corporate governance issue for the chaebol companies have been around for the last 50 years.feedback

Jessie Zheng - Alibaba Group Holding

The most powerful weapon against counterfeiting today is data and analytics, and the only way we can win this war is to unite. Alibaba welcomes brands and other organizations in the creation of the world's first 'Big Data Anti-Counterfeiting Alliance.' With our robust data capabilities, we are confident the alliance will accelerate the digital transformation in our global fight against counterfeits.feedback

Lee Kyu-chul

I cannot comment specifically on the timing of a face-to-face investigation of the president, but I believe it will need to happen by no later than early February. The president has said she would submit to face-to-face questioning, but if she refuses to comply there is no realistic way to force it.feedback

Geoffrey Cain

Beyond the arrest itself, this is going to be a big blow to the narrative they've been building. It's hard to convince shareholders and partners they are a hip Silicon Valley-style company when these charges show them to be a company run like a feudal dynasty.feedback

Rushabh Doshi - Canalys

You also have the Chinese companies, who have seen excellent success. You have Oppo, Vivo (and) Lenovo, who are selling phones that are a bit (pricier), around $150 to $200, but they're giving Apple and Samsung a run for their money because (of the) comparable specifications.feedback

Kim Hyun-soo

It's possible that Samsung Group companies will try to behave more transparently in response and operate in a more fair manner that shareholders can rationally understand.feedback

Kevin Plank

What are we going to do if Apple and Samsung start making apparel and footwear? How are we thinking ahead of that curve? Anything that makes sense to have a chip in it, it should….we expect to build it first. We've always been a technology company, not any one of us can afford not to be.feedback

Hugo Barra

It's a major engineering achievement. Doing that without an OLED display is very, very hard because you have to backlight it. The world hasn't seen anything like this.feedback

Richard Yu

Our company is a different management style than other companies. We call it collective wisdom. We are not only diligent…we are also flexible.feedback

Richard Yu

We never hide our ambition. We have a vision to make the world's best smartphone.feedback

Adam Bartsch

In near real time, what we're doing is computing the risk of concussion for any single head event.feedback

Young Woo - SK Securities

It's thanks to the improvement in semiconductors and displays on top of favourable foreign exchange rates.feedback

Manish Khatri

Chinese brands are offering quality that is at par with Samsung, at a better price. Of every 10 phones I sell, almost six to seven are now Chinese brands.feedback

Neil Shah - Apple

Being a global company is Samsung's biggest curse. Samsung phones were comparatively expensive, so I ended up buying a Lenovo a friend recommended.feedback

Arvind Vohra

In a country like India, there are two religions – one is Bollywood and the second is cricket.feedback

Lee Kyung-jae

There was no collusion between my client, the president and An. There is no truth in saying the accused (Choi) was involved in collecting funds for foundations from conglomerates.feedback

Lee Kyung-jae

The accused has not sought one bit of financial gain for herself since the day the foundations were established.feedback

Jim Cramer

They are the king of repatriation. You can repatriate those assets from overseas [and] that's $40 in cash per share overseas. It's hard to hate that stock given the fact that it is such a huge winner under the Trump regime.feedback

Park Jung-hoon - HDC Asset Management

We'll have to see how the mobile business does ... but I think Samsung's operating profit should be able to come in somewhere around mid-30 trillion won range (this year).feedback

Kweon Seong Dong

It's not good etiquette to the justices and also inappropriate for the president, as the defendant of the impeachment trial, to say this and that to the media outside of court.feedback

Kwon Oh-hyun - Samsung

It will take the collective efforts of all employees to overcome the daunting challenges ahead of us. Let's leverage our full set of capabilities as a company to confidently and definitively rise above these challenges.feedback

Kwon Oh-hyun - Samsung

After the expensive lesson learned last year, let us make all necessary reforms. First, we will maintain the basics of product competitiveness. Quality has been the cornerstone of our success that we must not compromise. We will restore top quality standards through improved processes and strengthened testing.feedback

Park Geun-hye

It was an important issue, and as president, I thought that it would be good for the National Pension Service to respond well to it. I have done my job and made judgments as president; how can you frame things to claim that an acquaintance did everything?feedback

Park Geun-hye

The matter is under investigation, so I can't make detailed explanations that might put both sides in trouble, but what I can assure you is that I have never conspired with anyone or did anything to give favors to someone, not even by a bit.feedback

Lee Hae-jin

Choi Soon-sil has shown us that our democracy was shattered. I hope in 2017 we will see our democracy repaired.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

I think Samsung have got their heads down and are getting on with it. It's essential because the competition doesn't get any easier.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

We have always said right from the beginning that we didn't think it would have a dramatic long term impact on Samsung, so far we are being proved right. It wiped out profitability, but I think they will record a spectacularly strong fourth quarter because they have upped their game in terms of marketing with the S7 and Edge and the S6 and entry level.feedback

Neil Shah - Apple

Samsung is the next brand which will face the Chinese onslaught in the India market. In Western Europe, Huawei has been growing very fast. Huawei is taking away share. If Samsung loses market share in a high volume market like India quickly, then overall market share will decline because it will be more dependent on Western mature markets like U.S. which is more carrier driven.feedback

Neil Shah - Apple

The entire onus is now on S8 and it has to fill up the gap which Note 7 left.feedback

Chris McCabe

There's no effective process for verifying that the party sending in the infringement form is accurate or legitimate.feedback

Kelly Johnston

How could sellers be so badly misdirected to the wrong agent? From an operational perspective, this is a massive failure.feedback

Kelly Johnston

They're caught in the middle. They want to make sure rights owners are happy, but they also don't want to alienate every seller.feedback

Jason Chaikin

We are really looking to the next generation of technology, so we don't just go underglass, but we are integrated into the display.feedback

Lee Seung-cheol

It was difficult to turn down the Blue House's orders and requests. What was different about the Mir and K-Sports foundations from other foundations the FKI established was the fact that the Blue House became involved in detail.feedback

Nicole Peng - Canalys

The Samsung case did make (Chinese smartphone users) start to think an international brand doesn't necessarily equal to a safe product.feedback

Janelle Waack

This removes a threat for technology companies. The products that incorporate technology are not automatically going to get stung with a patent infringement suit that's going to cost them all of the profits from their product.feedback

Jay Y. Lee - Samsung

There are often requests from various parts of society including for culture and sports. We have never contributed seeking quid pro quo. This case was the same.feedback

Park Ju-gun - CEO Score

There are two powers in South Korea that were untouchable - the president and the chaebol owner families. The two powers that were previously impervious are now being checked and criticised, and that is significant.feedback
