Samsung Galaxy A5 Review

I am satisfied with my new cellphone, the Samsung Galaxy A5. So far the picture and video is okay as I used it to take photos. With 13 Megapixels what do you expect. I also install a 32GB memories but I think the the disadvantage of this gadget is slow compared to other model. This of course in my own experience. I like the beauty of it because it is slim and look like an iPhone which is more expensive.

The monitor graphics is beautiful with A 5in 1,280x720 resolution Super AMOLED display. 

Overall I am satisfied with the price and the features. 

The Samsung Galaxy A5 is ideal for consumers seeking practicality and functionality.

 The Galaxy A5 is equipped with an extraordinary Super AMOLED display and Adaptive Display technology to deliver clearer images with deep contrast and better viewing angles for more vivid, colorful content in virtually any environment, even under bright sunlight. The Galaxy A5 is also outfitted with a Quad Core 1.2 GHz processor for seamless multi-tasking and faster browsing experience.

 In addition, the Galaxy A5 includes popular features exclusive to Galaxy devices, such as Ultra-Power Saving Mode, Private Mode and Multiscreen, as well as adjustable audio which intelligently adapts and enhances sound output based on the user's surrounding environment.

Hyundai Motor lowest earnings in more than 5 years

Two days ago I post here the top ten best selling car in 2014 and Hyundai is not one of them. Now I just read that the company has the lowest earning after 5 years in the business. It ranks 4th in the car manufacturing in the world.

SEOUL, South Korea—Hyundai Motor Co. reported Thursday its lowest quarterly earnings in more than five years after losing ground to local brands in China and underestimating strong demand for SUVs.

 South Korea’s largest automaker said its third quarter net income was 1.2 trillion won ($1.1 billion) for July-September quarter, slumping more than 25 percent over a year earlier.

 The result, its worst since the first quarter of 2010, was below even the lowest estimate by analysts. The maker of Sonata and Tucson vehicles was expected to post 1.5 trillion won in quarterly profit, according to a survey of analysts by FactSet, a financial data provider.

 Hyundai has suffered from weakening sales in China like some other foreign brands while its lack of new SUV models until recently led to lower share in key markets. The company has focused on sedans rather than SUVs, misreading consumer demand at a time of sluggish global demand for sedans such as the Elantra.

 Hyundai, part of the world’s fifth-largest automaker along with affiliate Kia Motors Corp., faced a slew of challenges in China, the US and South Korea.

 Its China sales plunged 30 percent in July over a year earlier and then sank 16 percent in August as Chinese auto brands introduced new models. The decline was narrowed to 5 percent in September.

Lee Won-hee, Hyundai’s chief financial officer, said its sales in China will turn higher this month compared with a year earlier, helped by a cut in tax on auto purchases.

In the US, the company last month recalled nearly half a million Sonata sedans for a possible engine flaw. It also gave more generous incentives to car buyers to compete with Japanese automakers, Lee said.

In South Korea, Hyundai’s labor union staged a strike for three days last month during the annual wage negotiations, affecting operations at all domestic plants.

During the third quarter, sales rose 10 percent to 23.4 trillion won while operating profit dropped 9 percent to 1.5 trillion won.

The latest result marks a seventh straight quarter of earnings decline for Hyundai.

The fall in its earnings is at odds with an improvement in Hyundai’s brand value. Interbrand, a global brand consultancy, ranked Hyundai Motor as 39th most valuable brand in the world, up one notch from a year earlier.
