I agree on Samsung's arrogance. You could get a Xiaomi Mi4 for this money in India, but they have clearly made no effort on designing these new phones. (1900mAh battery, undetachable??!!) We are in 2015 boys.
Horror for retailers...
Poor retailers who were hit by xiaomis motos n acers got another blow right on their with this releasw from samsung.
People hoping for a perfect product to be sold in the retail outlets have been given another overpriced good for nothing crap.
Galaxy a3, a5 may be having problem with poor WiFi connectivity because of metal body, for this reason it is delayed and launched in india, This problem is clearly setarite or not pl. confirm and purchase the same.
Samsung please compare your specs and price with Asus zenphone 2 .....I hope you understand the word competition.
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2015Spending 14k on 730 is more of a waste.Lumia 730 value for money. Just look for wp 10 OS in google "First look of wp10". USB Portable, Wifi Sharing, Internet Teethring. Or Go For Other Android Phones Like Lava Iris X1, Lava Iris Fuel 60, Moto G, Core Prime, Acer Liquid E700, Gionee M3.
These are labour class phones with too much price. No any intelligent, educated will buy these phones. In coming three months Samsung's market share will be shattered because of the arrogance of Samsung.
The real price should be :
A3 -- 8900/ Rupees
A5 -- 10800/ Rupees
E5 -- 8000/ Rupees
E7 -- 10150/ Rupees
Who will purchase these backward class phones? Surly intelligent,educated,mature won't buy these nonsense stuff. The Xiaomi , Motorola, Asus zen phones are far better and affordable with right price tag. Samsung bye bye ! have a lessons filled year 2015 ! !
Samsung was the best mobile manufacturer but not now
Just google and compare Mototrola or Xioami smartphones priced (12000 to 16000 Rs.)with Samsung Grand 2 (16000 Rs. In India)
you will end up with...... Good bye Samsung...
To put these phones on selves certainly retailers will die. Samsung has become highly arrogant company and this company also flying high same as Nokia. Still this time Samsung nothing learnt !! ? The people are not so fool to buy these phones. These are dead phone backward class phones and with high prices.
it,s good awesome phone in alumin body is very expensive...a5 specations is good..
AnonD-265153, 06 Jan 2015Only fools like Samsung Fanboys would buy phones at this price. So expensive for just metal. J... moreno u r wrong... i know i was stupid fanboy of sam-dung in the past but now i ve switched to motorola.. even sammy fanboys wont buy these stupid phones with lame specs for that price... atleast they should give SD615 if they really wanna convince the ppl to buy these lot for that price...
raj, 06 Jan 2015Lumia 730 @14k Far Better Than This Galaxy A3. Spending 14k on 730 is more of a waste.
Only fools like Samsung Fanboys would buy phones at this price. So expensive for just metal. Just metal. That's it, only metal. If their purpose is to make their phones look more reasonable compared to Apple's iPhone just because of the metal body, then they're wrong. There's a gap of differences between iOS and Android, iPhones are "low-spec" compared to Android flagships is because iOS doesn't require beefed up specs. If the Mi5 was priced roughly the same as these phones, goodbye Samsung.
AnonD-324821, 06 Jan 2015How does A5 cost most of those? it costs exactly similar to E7Actually a5 cost in india is rs 25,200
i am sure samsung is testing waters with its price..
price should normalize to reasonable levels in a month or two
AnonD-243873, 06 Jan 2015We people in India will pay for the metal clad Sammy phones.India loves samsung more than apple.dont generalise ..
apple sells more iPhones in india than what sammy could sell in high end ( S5 , S4 , note 4 and note 3 ) ..
smasung phones doesnt worth the premium tag that they command
