Personally, as a user of Samsung electronics products for over two decades (not just the mobile phone but also the refrigerator, washing machine, DVD player, MP3 player etc. ), my experience has been there has been a downward trend in quality of products as well as the customer service level. In certain cases, there was also a purposeful push to customers to move up (upgrade) the product chain unnecessarily, by stopping the maintenance on not so old models (<5 years). Coming to mobile phones, the quality has been an issue beginning with Galaxy S4.
