Microsoft is now the third largest smartphone vendor in India
Toss featurephones into the equation, and Samsung's leading market share drops to 25% with Nokia's 21% putting it hot on its rival's tail. With those parameters, Micromax is third with 13.5% of the Indian handset market. Thanks to lower smartphone prices, many consumers in the country are getting their first taste of what using a smartphone is all about.
Unlike many other reports, the figures here are based on actual sales, which allows us to have a more legitimate look at what the consumer is buying in India. The data show that Nokia remains a player in the handset market, although it no longer involved in the production of Windows Phone powered smartphones or the forked Android powered Nokia X.
