“It seems that Apple will be the only foreign smartphone maker in Korea for a long while.”

It seems foreign phone makers don't get a fair shake in Korea. No one but Apple is willing to tough it out in Samsung land. Talk about protectionism. read the report below. I applaud Apple under crazy circumstances.


they only took pre-orders for 5000 phones each? no wonder they sold out fast. cheap attempt to build hype.

Hey jack..
heard that the note 3 ad was a rip off of the 2007 iPhone add??
note 3 add
2007 iPhone add

but..but...The note 3 is wayy faster!!!
(than what??? the 2007 iPhone??)

I'm confused, Odo: Was that an ironic riff on the kind of bluster that ignorant 'experts', Samsung fanbois and trolls will descend to in order to bypass any actual facts on the matter, or are you actually serious???
My apologies if I missed the joke...

there are some wonderfully smart people over there!

That's likes saying that California only buys apple iPhones because it is apple territory. Your comment doesn't even makes sense. I have a couple of friends that have the The S3 or S4 I can't tell because they look the same and they're not even Koreans. So you're just making a whole new level of stereotypes

But... but... but no consumer in S. Korea wants a smartphone with a tiny 4" display. Everyone in S. Korea demands a smartphone with at least a 4.5" display. They like those big smartphones that are almost as large as their heads. Since it's Samsung's country, they'll only buy Samsung Galaxy S4s and Galaxy Note 3s out of national loyalty. It was probably just a fluke that the iPhone 5s/5c sold out as quickly as it did. The analysts are sure those two new iPhone models will be sales failures in S. Korea and everywhere else in Asia because they're too boring and too expensive for the common consumer.
