In the time of Nokia a phone with 25,000 or 30,000 price tag was understood is high end premium phone but Samsung cleverly created a new mind set in society which describes the high end phone for 40,000 or 50,000 rupees in India. Unfortunately, now high end phone in India for 20,000 Rupees by Chinese player. Now count down have been started for Samsung.
It's also going to graveyard because of the high price. Samsung still playing childish game in market. Now days people are purchasing high end phone in low price. Thanks to xiaomi, one plus one, Motorola, Asus, these made high end phone in reasonable price for public. Samsung is still in high ego as people will die without Samsung logo.
It's ridiculous that Samsung didn't make a statement on Lollipop updates. This is a 64 bit phone and it requires Android 5 Lollipop to use 64 bit capabilities.
Until Samsung makes a statement, no one should buy this phone. Or any other midrange/high end Samsung phone.
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2014Love how Samsung is now raising prices in their fans faces. Will also love how the price thump... moreSamsung: "So I heard the market wanted non-HD screens at MX4/Mi4 prices."
Whoever pays premium for Samsung these days is even *dumber* than Apple buyers. At least Apple gives you iOS and not Android.
By the way, I await your disastrous Q4 financial report, Samsung. Somehow you got even worse when it comes to phone pricing...
If this is going to be over £200 on prepay it's probably going to be DOA. Shame, nice to see a premium design on a mid-range phone with decent specs.
Love how Samsung is now raising prices in their fans faces. Will also love how the price thumpers will now suddenly u-turn and justify premium.
just wow. sammy has come out and stepped up the design to serious beauty here. good phone sammy, nicely done!
If the Galaxy A5 is gonna be priced around £400, then the A3 should be around £300, but that's still pricey, even with the metal frame. The Lenovo Sisley is much more reasonably priced and has pretty much the same thing without touchwhiz.
Metal frame and chamfered edges make this look like an iPhone.
And now even the giant FCC, CE and recycling symbols on the back have been resized to match the iPhone 6/6+. Not very original of Samesung. Not even the Galaxy Alphs had those giant symbols.
