Artour Babaev, 08 Jun 2017Get your facts straight. Hardwares from Samsung are not made here in the Philippines.Uhuh so yeah the battery on my S3 wasn't then huh? (S6's was in korea surprisingly, dunno about the other flagships. Seen "in China" on other midrangers) Or my 256GB SSD? Yeah maybe i just don't know how to read. You get your facts straight!
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2017If Indians think this means lower prices for Indian-made Samsung phones they are wrong.Even it is lower i doubt it will sell . Most average indian need a few months of their salary to buy it .
Its a fact but Indian manufacturing is never up to the mark. Indians arent as diliginet and dont focus much on quality in assembly lines as much as the chinese do.
Smart, 08 Jun 2017Very smart move from Samsung. Cheap labor there Not so cheap as Vietnam, Philipines or even China !
Dear nook, Since Samsung has not yet started manufacturing handsets in India, how did you know issues like bootloop with it. As your IQ is quite high, you also should be knowing that the Nokia plant in Chennai was shut due to dispute with the Finish parent company and franchaise owner of Nokia India. Prior to HMD takeover of Nokia, everyone knows that every where the global units of Nokia collapsed untimely. You seem to be an admirer of the super flop CPEC.
No offence ! But, I would never buy a phone made in India. Nokia tried the same thing few years ago , the factory itself was a failure. Made in India Samsung phones hangs , bootloops and all kinda silly bugs you could name. If you dig GSMarena comment sections you could find them easily.
Yeah Samsung, pollute our world even more with electronic and plastic waste.
The real reason being loss in market share from 25 to 20% this year and next year it will very well be below 15% if Samsung continues with same strategy. Vivo and Oppo has broken Samsung's back in offline markets and in online market Chinese brands are dominating. Apple has also committed to expand market share in India. So the things are not going to be easy for Samsung in india.
If Indians think this means lower prices for Indian-made Samsung phones they are wrong.
Great news. More natural resources to be plundered. Make in India guys, make in India.
It's a win-win situation for Samsung and Indians, even if Indians are likely double winners.
AnonD-456831, 08 Jun 2017Dont worry. It's the koreans and americans that program the software. The plant here in india ... moreGet your facts straight. Hardwares from Samsung are not made here in the Philippines.
AnonD-664474, 08 Jun 2017Yeah that's right Samsung. Spread further the epidemia of your horrible software.Dont worry. It's the koreans and americans that program the software. The plant here in india don't even make them, it's just an assembly line. The real hardwares are made in china, phil, korea. We just assemble. Not even the flagships are made here (S & Note series, just midrange) And no software. So can't blame us indians for all the bloatwares. Blame us for poor quality in low to midrange phones but definitely not the flagsihps that aren't made here. Especially the software on any samsung phones (low to flagship)
