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

Ben Wood specifically said: “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.”.

All quotes about Samsung

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
