No apple huh? Guess our country can't really afford that really expensive handset unlike other asian countries like jap, china, thai, kor, phil, indo, malay, viet etc where they are really sold well. (google it) Guess they had more money than sense. hehe
Well someone made a comment on majority of the phones being sold are crap budget phones.
Yes they are budget phones but not crap. Look at the specs of the majority of phones being sold .. its mostly 1080p, 4.7 to 5.5 inch, at least quad core processsor. 2 gb ram, 8to 13mp camera etc. Now at the top of it they are dirt cheap.. Rs 7,000/- to Rs 11,000/- (its roughly 100 USD to 160USD)... that's too contract free.
Companies like Micromax & LAVA are making decent phones at half the cost. These companies have reinvented the value game... As for profits I can vouch that even the Micromax with 13% share will definitely be making more profit than APPLE.
Alll said & done these so called cheap phones are:
1. Definitely not cheap but are affordable.
2. Making profits for the companies who are selling them.
3. Are somewhat close to 2013 flagship phones in terms of features & performances.
Muthu, 03 Feb 2016Samsung - Yes. Apple - NO, India is not an important market for them, YET.India is most important country for smartphones maker company like Samsung, Apple, HTC, Sony, Lenovo....and many more.....so India will be great market for them.....
At the end of it all, what matters is, how much you made. Quality or not. They are businesses.
Case in point, Lenovo. (A5000, K note series...)

Take a look at Sony mobile division finances...
They charge a lot for their phones, but they don't sell enough to have profit...
Here in Brazil they sell the Z5 for something around $ 875, but I never saw anyone with a Z5...
ithehappy, 03 Feb 2016Good to know, but as ever people should buy 'quality' products, not some cheap garbage which a... moreI would look at that as being smart with your money. You are too concerned with image.

SG N5, 03 Feb 2016Last year Apple sold 100 phones, this year 176 phones...an increment of 76%Mate, he's an iphone user, clearly logic and common sense are not his strong suit
HoseynZx, 03 Feb 2016Where is "SONY" ? :(Sony and apple ranks in profits! Not volume.. If you compare the flagships, you can buy 5 intex flagships for 1 sony flagship and sony gets 5x profit!
Great. Now what? It doesn't mean India make better smartphone than the rest of the world. It just adjacent to the population. Micromax, Intex and Lava? Local smartphone....No wonder.
Mir, 03 Feb 2016and they forgot to mention that most of the phones sold are cheap and third class phones.That is what I said.
Thats good for the Indians, even if most were budget smartphones, the budget smartphones today can almost do everything what high end smartphones can do and I guess we have to thank the Chinese.
and u forgot that apples's and samsung main market is india and these companies like apple earn a very large,big and hight profit froms india!!;
