Samsung’s troubles start in China, but could end up global

The race to the bottom is not what it used to be

When GigaOm’s +Kevin Tofel told me last year that he was letting go of his prized 2007 Corvette for a Fiat 500 Abarth, I thought he’d lost his mind. Why would a performance enthusiast give up a 400 BHP monster for a small econobox that needs twice as much to hit 60 mph from a standstill?

His argument was that, while he loved the Vette’s performance, he rarely got to enjoy it. He only drove it around 2500 miles a year and the most he could got out of the car was going 120 mph on fourth gear. The car still had two gears to go when he ran out of road to go any faster.

So he figured, why not go with something more economical, but with performance that could put a smile on his face more often?

Kevin’s argument above perfectly sums up today’s emerging market smartphone trends and the effect of the new breed of low-cost quality devices from companies like Xiaomi or Motorola.

Let me explain:

Used to be a paint correction specialist & tech writer for, with Xiaomi since 2014. My posts are my personal views.
Coming from a place where phone subsidy is non existent, Bobby spent the last decade obsessing over getting the best bang for the buck when it comes to mobile technology. These days he never leaves the house without carrying the world’s biggest phone, Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0. When not writing about mobile tech, he either provide linguistic services to local scientific communities or gets lost in his garage detailing old German cars. The latter earned him the nickname "Situkangpoles" which roughly translates to "the buffer guy" in English. It is safe to say that swirl marks are something he just can't live with.
Bragging rights
I spend 40+ hours on cars to make paint jobs optically perfect and free of imperfections particularly swirl marks.
