Insiders know this is more than a slump, it is a trending slide that needs to be dealt with now or it will never stop. The Galaxy S6 is being viewed as the new dawn, a device created from the drawing board and taking the company in a while new direction. However, according to analysts, Samsung's slide will continue even if the S6 is a success, which honestly it almost certainly will be.In 2014 Samsung's revenue fell 32.2% and now analysts are predicting a general slump of a further 6% in 2015. Last year got so bad that Samsung conceded huge market share to the likes of Apple and Xiaomi in China and South Korea.
