Besides, yes good phones are in demand across the world. If only you could explain this to a guy 2 comments below who's blind hater of xiaomi, i'd be grateful for that and secondly, even the McD attendee here in upstate NY has iphone x, so I don't think that indian purchasing pattern is applicable throughout. Almost any guy in US working on minimum wage for 10 hours /day can afford iphone x on contract with day's salary which isn't true for india, otherwise yes good phone is a good phone regardless of brand as long as they bother to update their phones..

Neither i am aware about your political lineage nor i intend to dissect it over mobile forum. You & some other fellow Indians get so easily worked up whenever our purchasing power is discussed, whatever mobile purchasing trend is going around in India also reflects mobile scene of other countries.
We Indians are smart but so are Chinese ,Americans & rest of the world !
We love well built $200-250 phones with stable os updates , so do people from other countries ( whether they buy over contract or unlocked it's their prerogative)
If we are ever planning to splurge 750 dollars over a phone we would blindly choose Samsung S9+ or Samsung Note 8 over oppo find X any day.

Never did i say that market is not sub 300, we actually have more brains than money unlike the developed ones. That guy is paying 65 dollars per month for the same plan I bought for 16.5 from MVNO. Besides since his was BOGO, he is still paying for his wife's phone. Nobody with sane mind would do the same in India. If I'm only going to use phones for call, casual games and internet, why pay 1000 for it or 5499-5999 INR/month which is plan for iphone x ? I bought my mom iphone 6 ( yeah that bendy dandy. Had to slap on a hard case after bendgate was uncovered, so much for premium) couple of years back and that battery life was simply not for her, It wouldn't even last half day with her usage habits. Gave her a redmi 4 that was lying around and never heard her complain about the battery again. I'm not a guy to scream Premium and pay 1000 for it, pretty sure many in india are the same. Phone is a tool, use it as such, buy it as such.

GENIUS.
Quit it , You need to agree that the market is sub $300. As that Gauri Said.
Secondly Some brands may launch 1-2 flagships a year , Just for recognition or to Experiment whether the high end products will sell or not.
Asus Zenfone 5z for the price it has launched on is a huge loss , Asus maybe trying for brand recognition , Same formula that Xiaomi used successfuly for market penetration.
Merwyn Fernandes, 08 Jul 2018How Many units did all those phones sell combined and vs how many phones sold for less than $3... moreCheaper phones selling more than more expensive ones (insert genius meme here) tell me more about business. It's true everywhere in the world. Carrier subsidies are a thing you know? India does not get that, and that model won't work here. My friend bought a free iphone x on T mobile few weeks back, so does that count as a sale? for free?. You are still circumventing my question. I am saying that if it does not sell in viable quantity, why would company even bother to launch? Logistics and warehousing cost money you know. So do fancy launch events and brand endorsements. If company can not recover that, why would they bother to do business in that domain? Sony withdrew from middle east, why aren't the premium brands withdrawing from india?

Did they sell 5 million iPhone X or Samsung note 9 , Last time I checked redmi 5a sold 5 million and Redmi Series Mostly sell more than a million units.
The dicussion here is not about whether the phone launches or not , it's just about what the market is and the fact is it's a sub $300 market and only those phones sell.
How Much does apple sell in India Vs Us , Samsung. Its foolish to argue with you cause you don't know buisness , you are all about emotions.

They didn't launch the 660 based phone because it'll be up against their own one plus series. Besides I'm not just talking about those 3, I'm talking about all brands in general too. Why does Samsung launch s and note series right from the start?, why did iPhone launch even at 100k within a month and half of international launch? Why is find x and vivo nex launching? Like you said they do their research don't they? Good thing you aren't doing it for them...

In pc section .. it's so worse that people start to ask how much vram does that gpu had instead of it's performance.. they actually believe 8 gb gtx 980m is miles ahead than 6 gb 980ti ..
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2018So why does it even bother to sell in first place if it is not viable for them?They Don't , Xiaomi didn't launch Mi6 , Mi8 , Mi Mix 2s , Even Oppo and Vivo have Left out a lot phones from India.
Cause they have done market reasearch and they know what sells and what dosent.
Emotion is one thing , Facts are another , The Market in India is for $300 and less phones and that won't change.
There is no need to get salty when someone shows you the mirror.

The fact is, if companies consider it viable to launch their products here pretty soon after launch then there must be a market of premium phones as well right? there must be a reason that almost all quality flagships launch within month or 2 before or after global launch. That slot is occupied by oneplus, samsung and apple

Bkk sells oppo and vivo budget and mid-range phones all below 300$.
Fact is OnePlus Dosent sell that well when counted in Nos.
Even Xiaomi can't sell phones above $300. Whether you agree or not that's what the market is and no one can deny it.
