Re: Better late than never
To add to your comment, as pointed out in the article "A broader range of devices with better software sounds like exactly what Samsung needs in order to regain the sales success it saw several years ago"
I think this is key here. Even thought focusing your attention on flagship models is good since it provide more focus, sadly consumers have demostrated that they won't always opt for the latest and greatest thing.
Providing a line of budget phones does really increase market share, since it's easier for a family to provide budget phones to each member than to provide flagship phones. Business can also more easilly provide companies phones this way as well.
