Samsung also dethroned in India in Q2, local manufacturer Micromax is now king

0. phoneArena 05 Aug 2014, 09:02 posted on

Earlier today, we passed on the news that Xiaomi, the fifth largest smartphone producer in the world in Q2 2014, has taken Samsung's crown and is now the leader on the vast Chinese market. While this is definitely bad news for Sammy, it seems that its rivals won't give it a break...

Not about smartphones.
Well , for bashing Samsung, all the tricks are allowed.

have you even read the article ?

it is talking about all phones ( smartphone + dumb phones )

secondly read the line they are closing in on samsung with 20 % share to micromax and 25 % to samsung in smartphone sales .. so sammy is clearly on a decline .. samyboy

Don't care, as long as it gets them enough investment to compete in the big time. Thing with these high tech hardware markets is that you need a lot of capital to even begin competing. Hopefully this gives them the money needed to develop something that destroys QC's now aging chips and breaks that monopoly. Intel seems hell bent on wasting time with x86 and Nvidia is only good at marketing bad designs. Everything is coming to a head this year, Samsung losing ground in all markets, new entrants climbing, old ones upping their game. 2014/2015 will be fun to watch as a consumer hopefully.

True. Qualcomm must be butt-kicked. Their monopoly and laziness have made android almost crippled and helpless against the iphone 6.
Its almost Q4 and all we are getting is an overclocked snapdragon 800.

From this hope Samsung get their act together. Release more compaling phones at a lower price.

I've owned lots of Samsung phones and I would highly disagree. However they are very uninspiring.

This is about Micromax selling more feature(dumb) phones. NOT SMARTPHONES.

If in this article they didn't mentioned it, PA just manipulate you, for bashing Samsung.

Samsung Shouldn't become next Nokia.

This might be coming , but not yet.
Samsung is STILL THE KING in India.

If PA didn't write it clear, that's because the bashing Samsung must go on. LOL

If Xiaomi improves the availability of its handsets in India, Micromax will be dethroned faster than the time it took to dethrone Samsung.

This is the result of fooling customers with fake processors. I really wish that Xiaomi kind of manufacturers increase in market who provide real processor (Qualcomm) at very affordable price..... I want consumer to be king.

The only thing that micromax has that make it on top is the price range. I hope samsung can lower its price.

What do one expect when they release uninspiring low ends with 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB ROM running 'Android' with lagwiz. If you must use those crappy hardware, at least make it pure stock with no bloatware.
