Samsung Posts Record $5.9 Billion Q2 Profits Thanks To Galaxy S3 Sales

Can’t say this really surprised any of us, but Samsung is reporting record Q2 profits of $5.9 billion. As you no doubt already guessed, this was due largely in part to the South Korean manufacturer’s rampant success with the globally launched Galaxy S3, accounting for 70% of Samsung’s business earnings, and giving Samsung the lead in market share over Apple.

And the Galaxy S3 is just getting started. Sales are expected to grow, so expect equally staggering numbers as more and more consumers flock to the device, and as Samsung prepares to announced a Galaxy Note successor.

    Anybody with a galaxy s3 be warned Just from about 3 feet drop my screen shattered! Even with invisible shield . Great phone but I recommend a case and insurance! Asurion was great though free overnight shipping.

      My 6month old daughter has drop mine more than once sitting In my chair and standing while holding her and nothing but I do have a baseus case it’s a very thin case though, I more less have it for scratches not drops, i also have hardwood floors, I am sure if it’s dropped in my driveway it might be a different story (concrete don’t give)

      Invisible Shields are not gonna stop you’re screen from cracking. They are to protect it against scratches. They will however keep glass out of your face if you do break the screen.

    Gotta love the Samsung girls. I hope they’re getting a raise with these booming profits. I know they gave me a… Uhh, nevermind.

    • NIGHTSCOUT

      They probably won’t be recieving raises, because they are models, and most likely not direct employee’s of Samsung. They are definitely smoking hot though……
