Samsung is on the way down for some time and the figures prove that. The S6 is not going to give them the result they're hoping for.
Succes comes and goes in waves and Samsung's wave is now on the way down.
Success breeds contempt....
Anonymous, 04 Feb 2015Yeah if you put manufacturers and rebranders in the same category that is.. I wouldn't be cought dead with a lava, karbon or a micromax!
AnonD-5666, 04 Feb 2015Cheap phones for cheap people. These Micromax, Lava, Xolo, Lenovo are meant for for auto drive... moreFirst use micromax then comment...i hv used both Samsung and Micromax...but micromax never hangs...internet speed even on 2g is much faster than Samsung..ys micromax lags in camera only..if micromax improves camera then Samsung is nowhere...
samsung is going the nokia way, micromax is hopeless company my experience is very bad with their products. lenovo will get the advantage
AnonD-146024, 04 Feb 2015It's because of cheap android phones. If you talk about flagships. None of the Indian manufact... moreYou are absolutely right, if you want a top range phone it is Samsung,LG, Sony.
Micromax, Karbonn,Lava and even the overpriced iPhone6 are strictly midrange.
Despite the term midrange these phone would have been top of the range just 4 years ago in 2011.
There is a point where the majority simply do not need top of the range phones, and these satisfy people and these mid range phones are more than adequate for those whose this is their first smart phone.
Smartphone are continually getting better, and have already been passed by someone who regularly buys Samsung.
Again looking at Micromax and comparing it to the first ever iPhone which came out in 2007 you see the upgrade these phones offer above the best specs 2007 had.
Samsung is an international company its price set globally.
Xiaomi in China, Micromax in India both national companies which and do supply at prices than Samsung
Just simple economics why pay more for a Samsung, when Micromax offer the same for much less..
It's NOT that if available in the UK Micromax were available, it is that my phone already has better specs
You only have to look at China becoming Apples largest market, after the launch of the iPhone6, the high price, nor the fact that it is NOT the best specs available, it has sold in the millions.
Of the few phones that are bargain basement in Eastern markets then become available in the UK, the price increases sharply, so being international makes phones more expensive
People will pay a high price if they want that phone but if an alternative is available you get that.
If you want an iPhone you have to buy Apple to say you own an iPhone so NOT I dislike Samsung, more I have an alternative to Samung
people trying to defend Sammy are pretty stupid.... its not about how cheap a phone is, its all about being a VFM product. VFM 'Value for money' is the most important. not everyone wandering streets with bag full of freakin black money.
Micromax trying pretty hard and finally its the boss as expected. at least micromax do not cheat Indians like Sammy does with its products of insane pricing with downgraded hardware, crappy processors.
Micromax may be the best seller in India but don't forget that micromax phones doesn't reveal their SAR values so please use at your own risk
Anonymous, 04 Feb 2015Oh havn't seen a lot of samsung fans here..

It seems you are micromax employee !!
You can't compare Samsung's quality with micromax
Micromax is a second name of hanging phones :@
Cheap phones for cheap people. These Micromax, Lava, Xolo, Lenovo are meant for for auto drivers and students with no money. Obviously they will sell more. When they can sell cheap waste devices for less than 10k, why would poor people buy anything for 30/40k for Samsung or 50k for Apple? There is no point competing against Micromax, there is simply no margin in such cheap low end devices.
You won't find Anandtech ever doing a review of Micromax mobile, there's nothing to review for such devices. Only reason they sell anything is not beacuse of quality, they sell beacuse they are cheap.
