Samsung's profits plunged 24% on slumping smartphone sales and disappointing reception of their flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone. Reality bit Samsung as Apple's iPhone 5S crushed the Samsung's S5 globally. Samsung's smartphone sales in China specifically were absolutely terrible. The results for their smartphones were so bad that Samsung angrily took back billions in bonuses from over confident executive. After all that incredible bad news and press, a road to Damascus miracle happened to Business Insider writer Jim Edwards who saw the light, was blind but now could see that the Samsung S5 is his mobile media savior.
Jim Edwards' blathering Samsung S5 testimony was humorous and yet he stated "I really wanted a big, 5.7-inch iPhone 6, but that won't be out until September at the very earliest …" so he was compelled to dump his current iPhone and run out and buy a Samsung S5 immediately before Apple could deliver their next generation iPhone.
This is the latest, funniest and loudest piece of Samsung PR garbage that I've ever read. The Business Insider's PR-like piece for Samsung has headings like this: I had no idea what I've been missing; Video is amazing; This is a phone for grownups who need to work.
Right, I guess that IBM, the master of the Enterprise, who chose to partner with Apple this week, simply should have waited for Jim Edwards's miraculous testimony before making a landmark mistake. Ha!
If you want to tell Jim what you think of his conversion, check it out here. In the end, the only thing amazing about the S5 is that it's been an amazing failure for Samsung.
