Samsung may be the world’s biggest phone maker but consumers aren’t impressed with its latest mobile phones.
Sales at the mobile phone unit fell 4%. Revenues of the South Korean firm’s mobile phone division dropped to 33.4 trillion won (£23.3bn) in the January-to-March period.
Overall, Samsung reported a net profit of 7.57 trillion won (£4.4bn) for the first quarter of this year, up from 7.3 trillion won (£4.2bn) in the previous three months.
Last week, Apple announced profits of $10.2bn in the three months to 29 March 2014 on some $45.6bn of revenue.
