Francisco Jeronimo
And this is a huge challenge for Samsung because Huawei aims to become number one. And they are doing extremely well in terms of not just growing the number of units sold, but also in terms of value because for Samsung or for any smartphone maker, it's not about shipping boxes anymore, it's about making money. And we are seeing the prices going up and up.feedback

All quotes about Samsung

Jeff M. Fettig - Whirlpool

The ITC vote is an important win for American manufacturers and American workers. For the third time since 2013, the ITC has found that Samsung and LG engaged in unlawful conduct by violating U.S. trade laws. This vote sets the stage for the administration to put in place an effective remedy to create a level playing field for American workers and manufacturers. This type of corrective action will create U.S. manufacturing jobs.feedback

Jeff M. Fettig - Whirlpool

If we had a level playing field, we would sell more, we would hire–we believe–at least 1,300 people.feedback

Peter Navarro

This heartland of America icon is grappling with a practice called country hopping, in which two of its South Korean competitors, LG and Samsung, simply move their production to another country each time Whirlpool wins an anti-dumping case against them.feedback

John Herrington - Samsung Electronics America

Consumer preferences shifted to design and style. Whirlpool didn't keep pace. How and where consumers shopped for appliances changed. Whirlpool didn't adjust.feedback

John Riddle

It's fair to say the pricing would go up. We would still certainly try to be competitive.feedback

Wilbur Ross

Foreign direct investment in America is a win both for the company and our nation.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

Google has a mountain to climb if it wants to displace Apple's iPhone, and even challenging Samsung, which has a trio of superb Android-powered flagship devices, will be tough; iPhone users are extremely unlikely to defect from their Apple device to an Android product and if they do the most likely device they will consider will come from Samsung.feedback

David Yoffie

These are two of the largest companies on the planet deeply tied at the hip and directly competitive. That makes this stand out compared with almost any relationship you can think of.feedback

C.W. Chung

Sleeping with the enemy, might be a better strategy for them than hating each other.feedback

David McQueen - ABI Research

Its main reasoning was to acquire Moto's patent portfolio so as to protect against Apple (and Microsoft) while also providing stiffer competition to Samsung (although Google would never admit this).feedback

Jake Saunders - ABI Research

HTC can design and produce innovative products but it lacks the deep pockets of the likes of Samsung for marketing promotions and saturation advertising. Competitors in the form of Huawei, Oppo, Xiaomi and ZTE are snapping at HTC's heels.feedback

Yaquta Mandviwala - Bain & Company

The government needs to subsidise battery and lithium imports or incentivise companies to set up this business in India. There are currently only a few large global battery suppliers such as LG Chem, Samsung SDI, BYD–no Indian company seems to be doing this currently.feedback

Young Sohn - Samsung

It's time to communicate our intent to enter the autonomous driving market. Samsung has been incubating this business for quite a while.feedback

Dong Jin Koh - Samsung

As the head of the business, I can say our current goal is next year. When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product. We are digging thoroughly into several issues we must overcome, as we don't want to just make a few, sell a few and be done. We want to hear that Samsung made a very good product. We have a plan to adopt a foldable display in our roadmap.feedback

D.J. Koh - Samsung

Since the August 23 New York unpack, many buyers and partners said the initial response was very encouraging.feedback

Jim Cramer

The Samsung ecosystem, I mean what is that? What is the Samsung ecosystem? It's like the Nevada rainforest.feedback

Jim Cramer

The press is filled with the usual 'well it's really not that revolutionary.feedback

D.J. Koh - Samsung

We are digging thoroughly into several issues we must overcome, as we don't want to just make a few, sell a few and be done. We want to hear that Samsung made a very good product.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

The iPhone X and iPhone 8 models are very strong additions to Apple's portfolio that address increasing competition from Samsung and others. Rivals will be watching how quickly Apple can meet demand for the iPhone X and begin to build margins on a new design with new components.feedback

Jerry Kang

It will take a few years until Samsung's competitors catch up with Samsung to overcome challenges they're facing now with many materials and components.feedback

Jim Cramer

When my kids come to me and beg me for a Samsung, you know what? You might hear me say some different things about Apple than I currently do.feedback

Daniel Kim

There's no doubt that OLEDs will set the general trend in smartphone displays from now.feedback

Tom Kang - Counterpoint

OLEDs really started getting noticed when the phone's external design changed. This is something that LCDs can never do.feedback

Jeff M. Fettig - Whirlpool

Without safeguard relief, it is hard to see how we maintain our competitiveness in the face of a continued onslaught of low-priced imports.feedback

Jeff M. Fettig - Whirlpool

A global safeguard is absolutely critical because it is the only tool available under U.S. trade law that can remedy the impact of Samsung and LG's evasive 'country hopping' behavior.feedback

Tim Baxter - Samsung

Our success in the U.S. laundry market is due to our ability to meet new consumer preferences.feedback

Raymond Soneira

It is the most innovative and high performance smartphone display that we have ever lab tested.feedback

Richard Wu - Huawei Technologies

Compared with Samsung and Apple, we have advantages. Users are in for much faster (feature) performance, longer battery life and more compact design.feedback

Dinesh Palliwal

What is the long-term strategy? To continue to be agnostic; to provide excellent product. People want choice and they do not want to sacrifice the quality of sound. This is where Harman comes in.feedback

James Park - Fitbit

It doesn't. We have an incredible brand, we have a large community of users - over 50 million registered users who are cross platform compatible - so all these assets I think position us really well in the category.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

LG has pulled out all the stops with the V30 when it comes to specifications and features. Ultimately it will depend on how much it is prepared to spend on marketing to take the fight to Samsung and educate consumers about how the V30 is different from rival Android 'super phone'.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

LG V30 certainly ticks all the boxes when it comes to specs and the company has clearly listened to consumers in an effort to understand what they want. The big question is how much is it prepared to invest in marketing to take the fight to Samsung in this premium Android superphone segment.feedback

Stephen Lee

Underlying business sentiment is solid, busier industrial activity points to stronger growth for the third quarter. Demand for electronic components seems to be supported by Samsung's launch of the Galaxy Note 8, while new car launches by Hyundai Motor Co. also boosted car production.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

I think there is a general concern that the Swiss army watch smartwatch which is all things to everyone isn't grabbing the attention of consumers. There is no question the fitness and health dimension is proving to be successful. It has worked well with Apple.feedback

Satoru Oyama - IHS

Samsung has been buying up advanced production equipment for (next-generation) three-dimensional NAND chips to widen its lead. Western Digital and Toshiba really need each other because they can't compete against Samsung without partners.feedback

Jim Cramer

Honestly, if you want to take a really grim, really cynical view here, the traders should've been buying Apple on the news and selling its main competitor, the South Korea-based Samsung, because if a conflict does break out, Samsung's headquarters would be right at the epicenter.feedback

Daniel Binder - Jefferies

We expect Best Buy to benefit from strength in appliances and connected home, however we also expect robust growth in entertainment from the introduction of two gaming consoles in Q1 and mobile to benefit from a full quarter of Samsung S8/S8+ availability.feedback

Kwon Oh-hyun - Samsung

I believe all of you must be devastated by the lower court ruling ... We management are also distressed.feedback

Kim Ye-eun

Reports from S&P and Fitch over the weekend prompted worries among foreign investors, triggering them to unload more shares today than they did on Friday. The leadership vacuum may not have short-term effect, but in the long-term, it is a serious problem.feedback

Yoo-Kyung Park

It's high time to think hard about whether the chaebol system is the right one for Korea. In the 21st century, you can't have one person calling the shots. That is too dangerous.feedback

Kim On-soo

Until the Galaxy was released, my American friends thought Samsung was Japanese.feedback

Nicholas Hyett - Hargreaves Lansdown

The forthcoming generation of Samsung Galaxy and iPhone handsets claim to make big steps forward, but recent history hasn't delivered much that's revolutionary,'. Seb James will be hoping Tim Cook (Apple's CEO) has something big up his sleeve.feedback

John Waldron

They don't have the people in place to really drive the decision making at this point.feedback

Trevor Noah

When you turn the management over to the tree-huggers, the bird and bunny lovers and the rock lickers, you turn your heritage over.feedback

Park Sangin

Chaebol leaders used to get the same sentencing every time. There was even a saying called the '3-5 law' – three years sentencing, five years' probation. If Lee receives a heavy sentence, it can be seen as the shattering of the 'too-big-to-jail' trend of the past.feedback

D.J. Koh - Samsung

If we can put in place properly a smartwatch that can monitor everything from your health and provide the information, then the market will grow. Today's sensors do not look like enough.feedback

Conor Pierce - Samsung

Last year was very tough for us, so with the new Note 8 we have been re-engaging with our audience.feedback

D.J. Koh - Samsung

None of us will ever forget what happened last year. But, I will never forget how millions of dedicated Note loyalists stayed with us; so let me express my deepest gratitude. We appreciate the relentless passion of the Note community. They've been a constant inspiration to us, and we designed the new Note for them.feedback

Kim Sang-jo

I think Samsung faces major challenges in efficiently managing the entire group … it will struggle for a while to re-establish a strategic decision-making process.feedback

D.J. Koh - Samsung

Maybe soon we will announce it. I am already working on it. As I mentioned I wanted to provide a fruitful user experience at home with Samsung devices, and I want to be moving quite heavily on it.feedback

D.J. Koh - Samsung

There are lots of Chinese customers that are very techie customers. Even (when) I listen from normal customers (about) what they expecting and what they want to see from their Samsung … my conclusion is that the global product will work in China.feedback

D.J. Koh - Samsung

The last two or three years was a very very difficult time. But I would like to say that the Chinese market is one of the most important markets in the world. I will recover definitely and I'm doing my best in the Chinese market.feedback

D.J. Koh - Samsung

I am quite not 100 percent confident but up to the launch of the Galaxy S8, our premium segment market share has significantly improved.feedback

Francisco Jeronimo

I don't see why someone would go with Samsung when they can go with Google or Amazon. Because Samsung is a threat in the end.feedback

Tim Baxter - Samsung

It forced the company to work more closely together. The way we got work done changed.feedback

D.J. Koh - Samsung

When we designed the Note 8, we knew we had to get it right.feedback

Doreen Wang

Samsung is probably the fastest recovery of all the historical crisis I've seen.feedback

Wayne Lam - IHS

Apple has always been a study of discipline, and Samsung has always been rushing to stuff in as much advancements as possible.feedback

Park Ju-gun - CEO Score

A big strategic change under Jay Y. Lee was to strengthen Samsung Electronics' B2B (business-to-business) portfolio besides semiconductors. They were in the long-term process of changing all divisions into B2B, when Lee was detained. This could throw a spanner in its macro direction, and make it more difficult to decide on large-scale M&A.feedback

Lee Jae-yong

In retrospect I had a lot of shortcomings and didn't take care of the things that needed to be taken care of, and that's all my fault. It was my responsibility. I have no excuses.feedback

Justin Denison - Samsung Group

Samsung pursues innovation, and we stumbled. We accepted it, we learned from it, we've applied processes and we've had quite a bit of success in recovering from that.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

Having image stabilisation on both lenses takes Samsung one step ahead of Apple, but at present there don't appear to be any plans to support augmented reality features – something we expect to feature prominently on the next iPhone.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

It's a testament to Samsung's stubbornness and determination that the launch of the Note 8 cements its position as the leading Android smartphone maker, drawing a clear line under the Note 7 problems.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

By launching the Note 8 now, Samsung gets the oxygen of publicity ahead of Apple's highly anticipated iPhone 8. Samsung will be hoping that a trio of competitive high-end products – the Note 8, S8 and S8+ – will appeal to anyone looking for a new Android phone. Furthermore, these devices are certainly good enough to turn the heads of a few iPhone owners who fancy a trying a different device.feedback

Daniel Binder - Jefferies

Based on our field checks and other research, we believe Best Buy should be able to grow domestic SSS [same-store sales] at the high end or better than mgmt.'s plan. We expect Best Buy to benefit from strength in appliances and connected home, however we also expect robust growth in entertainment from the introduction of two gaming consoles in Q1 and mobile to benefit from a full quarter of Samsung S8/S8+ availability.feedback

InJong Rhee - Samsung

Now millions of customers worldwide have access to a new and intelligent way of interacting with their phone. The expansion of Bixby's voice capabilities is an initial step in the continued rollout of Bixby functionality. In the future, Bixby will have the learning power to offer more intelligent and personalized interactions and seamless connections across more devices.feedback

Neil Mawston - Strategy Analytics

The S8 was the world's best-selling Android smartphone in the first half of 2017. The Note 8 is going to be like an S8 on steroids, accompanied by heavy marketing spend and deep retail distribution.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

It is very clear that HMD Global needs to position Nokia branded devices as an alternative option for consumers who don't want the expense of a top of the line iPhone or Samsung Galaxy device. Nokia remains a widely recognized mobile phone brand and HMD needs to capitalize on that as quickly as possible. The Nokia 8 is another important milestone as the company adds breadth to its portfolio of devices in an effort to broaden its appeal to consumers.feedback

Juho Sarvikas

We know that fans are creating and sharing live content more than ever before, with millions of photos and videos shared every minute on social media. People are inspired by the content they consume and are looking for new ways to create their own. It's these people who have inspired us to craft a flagship smartphone which perfectly balances premium design, an outstanding experience and powerful performance.feedback

Shankar Chandran

Standards tend to get ecosystems built around them in a fairly complicated way. What's needed is a bunch of industry players across the value chain saying they're going to build to that standard. And that's really what we have.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

The Nokia 8 is an extremely important product for HMD Global: its first attempt to move into the more lucrative, higher-tier smartphone segment, a notoriously challenging part of the market dominated by Apple and Samsung. The company will be hoping that the widely recognised Nokia brand will help it stand out from rivals such as HTC, Huawei, LG and Sony, which are also trying to compete with Apple and Samsung.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

The Nokia 8 has some innovative features including the dual-sight function on the camera and the 360-degree audio recording but it's not yet clear whether these are game-changing features that will lure consumers away from established rivals such as Apple and Samsung.feedback

Christina Bechhold Russ - Samsung

There are barriers to adoption for people when it comes to these new connected devices, or the smart home. It has to be frictionless, especially if you want to reach populations that aren't as comfortable using tech already.feedback

InJong Rhee - Samsung

We believe Bixby will evolve from a smartphone interface to an interface for your life.feedback

Yoo-Kyung Park

In terms of crisis management, the company has been learning quite fast.feedback

Kim Woochan

Samsung's recent performance has little to do with senior management. It's riding on the coattails of a rebounding semiconductor industry.feedback

Lee Jae-yong

I used to make a pledge to myself that when I am fully in charge of management, I would do things properly, abide by the law and do things right as well as become a businessman respected by society and people. I am filled with many emotions that I stand in court before I could live up to my words.feedback

Lee Jae-yong

I have no knowledge of the business that Samsung C&T and Cheil Industries were involved in. The merger was carried out by the executives of the Future Strategy Office.feedback

Mark Lipacis - Jefferies

As the incumbent with dominant share, we think INTC (Intel) has the most to lose.feedback

Greg Roh - HMC Investment Securities

The mobile business might be slightly weaker in the third quarter because the second quarter was so strong, but the expected sales from OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display supply to Apple Inc (AAPL.O) is seen to be reflected in earnings starting in the third quarter.feedback

Richard Parris

Biometric authentication is not entirely immune to potential attack and therefore should not be relied on as the sole means of verifying a user. Rather than use biometrics in isolation, instead businesses need to be looking at strong authentication that incorporates three distinct elements – possession (something you have, such as a smartphone), knowledge (something you know, such as a PIN) and inherence (something you are, an iris scan).feedback

Richard Parris

This allows businesses to verify that the person accessing the service is who they say they are, in addition to limiting the amount of times an individual can attempt access if any of these elements are missing or incorrect.feedback

InJong Rhee - Samsung

As the Bixby ecosystem grows, it will use its completeness, context awareness and cognitive tolerance to evolve from a smartphone interface to the interface for your life.feedback

Richard Crone

You walk into any retailer, any restaurant, any service provider–what do they want you to do? Like them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter. The real value is in the data, and the ability to render customized ads and offers, and generate a revenue stream from that. We estimate that the value of mobile payments per enrolled active account is worth more than $400 per year in revenue, to whoever does it–Venmo, Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, a bank, Visa, or Mastercard.feedback

Jonathan Freedland

The key is timing. The people may well want a rethink once the clock runs out in March 2019 – when the disaster will be clear• Jonathan Freedland is a Guardian columnist. Project fear is becoming project reality. Each day brings new evidence of the dire consequences of Brexit. Sometimes it takes the form of a big company announcing that it’s moving operations from the UK to the continent, taking hundreds or thousands of jobs with it. It could be JP Morgan or Goldman Sachs or Samsung, depending on the day of the week.feedback

Felix Petersen

Samsung is a world leader in making powerful interfaces that connect anyone with anything, anywhere. At Samsung NEXT, we're investing and acquiring companies in areas like AR, VR and AI to build the products and interfaces that will further transform how we're connecting with the world. I'm excited to lead our expansion into Europe. The combination of deep tech talent and cultural diversity makes this market very attractive. It also gives us a great opportunity to become the place for European entrepreneurs looking to build and grow their startups and turn them into revolutionary companies.feedback

Nenad Marovac

Global investors are recognising that European venture capital offers a rich A to Z of investment opportunities: trailblazing tech innovation born in cities from Amsterdam to Zurich. Anyone who has ever played Angry Birds or searched for flights via Skyscanner is benefiting from Europe's highly talented entrepreneurs – not to mention the fintech and life sciences start-ups leading the way in their sectors. Backed by Europe's experienced VC fund managers, these companies can rival the best in the world for returns to investors.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

This is a somewhat baffling device. Red has a reputation of delivering high-performance camera technology and that is undoubtedly one of the anchor elements of the device together with the holographic screen, but until more concrete details emerge it is difficult to judge.feedback

S.R. Kwon - Dongbu Securities

It's likely that the mobile division's losses were well over 100 billion won, while profitability for both the television and appliances businesses were a bit weaker than what we had anticipated.feedback

Jim Cramer

I give you this list not because I'm a bear, and not because the market is down hard today, the first time in four sessions. It's more because I want you to know that I have a list and I check it constantly. I always add new things to it, because that's what you do if you're a pro. In my mind, there's two ways to look at this issue: go long Apple and short the South-Korea-based Samsung if you are narrow and linear and focused just on the stock market, God love you. Or be prepared for the un-preparable. I'm just glad Dear Leader has such a small nuclear arsenal, but that's a pretty low bar.feedback

Jeff Kim

Figures of demand associated with data centers have not been accurately estimated, but data usage among consumers is surging, while relevant companies are making larger-than-expected server investments for data analysis and application.feedback

Tom Kang - Counterpoint

The Galaxy S8 series has been out for more than 2 months now and we see similar traction as the Galaxy S7 series.feedback

Hwang Min-sung - Samsung Securities

To process and analyze big data, data storage comes first and this is the driving force behind Samsung's record-high profit. Consumers' data usage exploded and companies are not saving their money to invest in servers for data storage and data analysis.feedback

Choi Do-yeon - Shinhan Investment

There's no chance of major oversupply issues, and I think Samsung is investing so much, because it's convinced that won't happen.feedback

Park Ju-gun - CEO Score

Samsung is being more aggressive in domestic investments, because of the current (political) climate.feedback

Peter Lee - Microsoft Research

From the second quarter, Samsung will become No. 1 in market share due to the recent increase in data centers and demand for solid-state drives.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

Samsung has very carefully positioned it to the most devoted, most well-informed consumers and therefore they will be able to understand that Samsung have reworked the existing product and delivered it. You could also argue if Samsung is keen to continue using the Note brand for more business centric and productivity devices, reintroducing the Note 7 successfully would help them re-establish the brand ahead of any potential Note 8 launch.feedback

Danielle Cohen - Samsung

We have long been exploring ways to establish a long-term production base in America to allow us to capitalize on the skilled U.S. work force and increase our proximity to the consumers who are driving global trends and demand for premium home appliances.feedback

Tim Brown

It's staying on the good side of the administration, keeping stability in global trade by shifting a bit more onshore.feedback

Satoshi Tsunakawa

We want Western Digital to jointly invest in fighting against Samsung. It will be so disappointing if we can't do so because of the dispute.feedback

Kim Sang-jo

I will pursue chaebol reforms through a positive campaign where companies voluntarily create exemplary cases. I will urge them to change if they continue practices that go against the hopes of the government, the society and the market.feedback

Lixin Cheng

We are now focused on different strategic markets, China, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific … We are confident we will be in the top tier smartphone venders in the world … Now that we are moving from (4G) to 5G, which requires a lot of investment, technology and innovation, that is ZTE 's strength. We will be very fast, faster than you think.feedback

Neil Campling - Northern Trust

In our view Apple's Siri has developed little since it was first introduced in 2011. It has brought the concept of voice-led services to the consumer mindset but has fast gone from leader to laggard in the application of this form of technology in our view.feedback

Adam Cheyer

I am very proud of what we accomplished to initially take this new paradigm and bring it out to hundreds of millions of people. I think Apple is doing good work and is still a major player in this race. What's going to matter is which companies can elevate an assistant from where it is today, a utility … to be this ubiquitous paradigm and I think Apple and everyone else is in the game and it will be great for consumers no matter who wins.feedback

Adam Cheyer

We are working on a next generation assistant and we will deliver it through Samsung's devices, perhaps under the Bixby brand eventually but also to other interfaces. Right now there is a race to the single interface where all of the big companies Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and now Samsung are trying to make the assistant the next paradigm like the browser, like the smartphone, you'll have an assistant to help you in your lives.feedback

Adam Cheyer

You will be able to do everything you do for computing through an assistant interface.feedback

Mara Segal

We believe in the promise of a smarter home, but wanted to move beyond automation and opaque devices with blinking lights... The idea behind Essential Home is that technology is there, supportive, and proactive enough to be helpful, without forcing you to ask or type a question. It's in your environment; you can tap or glance at it, but it never intrudes or takes you away from the things that are important to you.feedback

Dirk Engling

Iris recognition may be barely sufficient to protect a phone against complete strangers unlocking it. But whoever has a photo of the legitimate owner can trivially unlock the phone. If you value the data on your phone - and possibly want to even use it for payment - using the traditional PIN-protection is a safer approach than using body features for authentication. A successful attacker gets access not only to the phone's data, but also the owner's mobile wallet.feedback

Anshul Gupta - Gartner

Although Samsung announced that preorders for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are up 30 percent year over year, the absence of an alternative to Note 7 and the fierce competition in the basic smartphone segment are leading Samsung to continuously lose market share. Sales of iPhones were flat, which led to a drop in market share year over year. Similar to Samsung, Apple is increasingly facing fierce competition from Chinese brands Oppo and Vivo, among others, and its performance in China is under attack.feedback

Yoo Yeong-ha

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

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

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

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

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

Michael Hayden

There are some bad people in the world who have Samsung TVs too. 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.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

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

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
