It's the problem with Indian government. They increased GST. A phone that costed 9k 6 months ago costs 16k now.

So they struggle to make a better cpu and make people use it. Of course the idea is not bad, the more in-house, the better, more money for them. Nokia could be in place of samsung now, if they would have not contracted with microsoft, but well....

But well, they canno... moreYeah correct bro i mean samsung is good the thing that they lack is their porcessor which is the most important thing of a smartphone.Just see they are still using the slow 9611 in all their midrange devices.And that 6000mah we don't need that a efficiwnt peocessor with 5000mah battery is enough.Samsung is not bad but the area where they lacked and lacking is the exynos processor though few years back flagship exynos processor were better tham qualcomm their midrange processor never came near to qualcom counterparts.People choose xiomi oppo after knowing everything because they provide a way better processor in the same price range.If smasung improves its processor it will gain a huge market share
Viper, 20 Jul 2020Thanks for the information.But have have heard of samsung J series smartphone if u have heard ... moreAs for the cpu, well, you are correct their too, but chinaware is also not better, only some devices released in the past year
Viper, 20 Jul 2020Thanks for the information.But have have heard of samsung J series smartphone if u have heard ... moreWell, i am not against what you say, as samsung is no better then xiaomi. But well, they cannot and would be seriously dumb for them their side, to do the same marketing strategy as chinaware. What would have been a shoot in the foot, as they want to appear premium not cheapium. India market is not the only market in this world, and also not the reachest, so i hope you realise that companies make way more money in europe and USA then in India. Yes in india their are quite cheap devices as i have heard you got a lot of stuff that europe does not. But to speak out the truth, when you buy a xiaomi, you actually pay for it about it's whole life, as you pay with your personal behaviour and information, and that means a lot of money, so much that actually at the end, chinaware is way more expensive then any other, but well, to each his own. But as i have said at the biginning, samsung is not better in this regard.

Viper, 19 Jul 2020Samsung is making the same mistake that nokia made.Nokia thought they were the king back then ... moreMinding the fact that you do not know when smartphones were invented i can safetly say, your comment is invalid. Hack in 2003 there were sony smartphones with touchscreen and stylus. Anyway Nokia was sure Apple will not do great as Apple devices were no smartphones, were just a slab with ipod os and ability to make a call, a funktion iphones faild to properly provide, years after releasing the first iphone. By the time apple release their first phone. Nokia had gaming devices, business class smartphones and had billions invested in research where nanotechnology in smartphones was high priority, they were releasing banding phones with touchscreens prototypes and were very active in futuristic innovations, this why Nokia could not give a scrapp about that hidios slab that was not even a smartphone. Of course Nokia failed to see something crucialy important, and that is the apple way of manipulating people. They were slowly shifting the smartphones away from business class without a smartphone (yeah most of the smartphones were business class in those times, Nokia never knew how to properly address the mass). Anyway, apple marketing strategy was as tacky as it gets and plain laughable. But not for the mass. And this is how a jokePhone has become a multibillion business. Was nokia snooty? Maybe, but with the right to do so. Were they dumb at ignorig the fact that people are not that smart as they tought? For sure. Did they learned a lesson? Apparently not. As they still believe in the "gut-mensch".
TheLastOracle, 19 Jul 2020Not really. Samsung, for one, has models across all price brackets. And their mid rangers are ... moreWell samsung lost 2nd place to vivo only beacuse they are still using slowynos 9611 in the midrangers.Samsung has the capability to make a good phone but no they will not do it other parts of the phones is good but it only in the processor part.And don't just say it has huge battery samsung have to provide huge battery cause 9611 ia not efficient and produces a lot of heat so a big battery is required.
Realme phones have been mostly out of stock despite being popular and in demand, thier stupid sale patterns do not help to capture more market than they are capable of.......This is where likes of Vivo and Oppo fill in the missing gaps in budget segment which is left wide open by Realme. Vivo, oppo and Samsung are targeting much wider group of audience who aren't so tech savie nor interested in sale patterns of Realme and other brands who loge to do it, and capture silently even more market without the need of the over hyped phone sales on Flipkart and Amazon, So vivo Oppo n Samsung offer medicore speced phones to target these normal buyers as an alternative to the Realme and other sale oriented phones, and unfortunately this audience is too big to serve, so all of them cannot buy the most popular phones by Realme as severe lack of supply and shortage wether artificially created or intentionally limited...or real lack of of manufacturing capacity can be any of these reasons for Realme. But whatever it may be the reason , Realme should realise , they don't need to hype thier phones any more to get the buyers attention towards them, people already know and herd of the brand enough , it's time to enter into mature phase of the company , and be consistent supplier of smartphone and capture wider form of audience and not be limited by one type of buyers alone, if they really want to be number one smartphone brand in country not only by popularity but also by sales figures.

The low volumes were reflection of current economy. This reflected in all other products group. You see Samsung dips around 60% then where does Anti Chinese sentiment diverted to? I don't mind buying Xiaomi's, OP's, LG's or Samsung's when the device meets my requirements, no matter Chinese or Non-Chinese.

And their mid rangers are getting much better. Plus they're made in India, so their duty levies would be much lesser too.
I think Asus has best chance to overtake.

Jacktackle, 19 Jul 2020Compared to iPhone with dead blocks, Samsung not charging more. If lazy iPhone can sell, then ... moreAtleast the lazy iphone has a better processor.Samsung exynos processor are not good at all the exynos 990 is not even as good as sd865 and the midrange exynos 9611 is not even close to sd710 and sd712

It is also expected that LG w... moreU missed nokia.The problem with samsung lg and nokia is that the price and the processor they use.They use a year old slow chipset and ask a lot for that but on other hand xiomi vivo realme provides a decent processor in the same price range so people buy their phones more.And lg doesn't even provide proper software update so samsung are nokia are the only brands that can compete with the them
Anonymous, 19 Jul 2020How the heck did Vivo get to no.2? What's their best selling phone?? Due to vivo z1 pro.Vivo started concetration on ghe processor and they got the result still samsung use their slow exynos 9611 in every midrange.Samsung m31 need a 6000mah battery cause that exynos 9611 is not efficient it produces heat and consumes more power.Onlu good about samsung md range phones are their amoled diplay and vivo and xiomi provide better value for money so they got the spot
KPL, 19 Jul 2020If you can merge Xiaomi and POCO sales then why not include realme sales with OPPO?Poco is a sub-brand of Xiaomi. Ex Xiaomi Pocophone F2 Pro. Realme is a different subsidiary of Oppo who rules them self's. Realme is a different brand of BBK Electronics Group together with Vivo, OnePlus, Oppo.
