Motorola makes it rain with 1 million phones sold in 5 months, thanks to Flipkart

Flipkart is a prime example of how quickly brick-and-mortar markets reorient to the cozy confines of online shopping, as it is experiencing an unprecedented growth in India, amassing orders from even the most remote rural areas there. Motorola's decision to be represented exclusively on Flipkart has evidently been a wise one, as evidenced by the million phone march since the beginning of the year.
Something tells us that, besides the tailored distribution channel, Motorola's success story in India has also to do that its phones are now perhaps the best value-for-money branded offerings in the Android universe, and we have the brief stint as a Google subsidiary to thank for that. Whether or not this trend will continue with Motorola being part of the Lenovo group now, remains to be seen, but Lenovo has also proven that it can out stellar handsets at rock bottom prices, so for the time being it seems like a match made in heaven.

Flipkart has awesome shipping times and the service generally depends on the seller. But Snapdeal is a whole another story.the shipping times are horrendous...never had bad shipping with flipkart ever. once brought a 3D 47In. LG tv and was shipped 20 days later..and the funny thing is it was not shipped to my home..but stark opposite to where i live by 500Kms. and just 20 days ago brought a new 40In VU Full HD TV and came home 15 days later. so you get an idea about how snapdeal is compared to flipkart.

Flipkart is only interested in selling their products. They don’t check any quality or if the product is suitable or not. They just show anything which they think they can sell. I brought Tablet Cover from Flipkart. I did received it as promised but was NOT suitable for which it was shown. My Tablet slipped out of the Cover & got heavily damaged. When I gave my feedback when they asked for & I wrote what I have mentioned above, they asked me to edit & finally did not posted.

Motorola is winning hearts. First with Moto G and now with Moto E and last but not the least is their updates. Totally awesome. I think they learned few things from Google like product prices and updates.

I think we in the US sometimes take for granted how much 'disposable' income we have to spend on items like cell phones. It's rare, but I have seen comments on PA where people will simply move on to another phone when they've gotten bored with their current one, getting 3+ phones in one year. But for most, $300 for a phone, $600+ for a flagship (off-contract prices) is NOT a casual purchase. When you put that much money into it, you want to get your money's worth because you're going to have to live with the decision for a while. That's why it's so refreshing to see Motorola put some real quality into their affordable handsets.

Flipkart is great.my friend has moto g.His headphone that he got in the box started misbehaving. So he called flipkart and they refund him rs 800 ie 13.34 $. And again he was resetting his moto g and in the middle of it he switched off the phone (i donno why!) as a result it was not booting so he again asked flipkart for replacement and in two days they send him a new set.

Well good for Motorola/Lenovo so far. Better bask in the sunshine while it lasts. Once the mi3 is launched in a week or so, every single brand in India, big & small, will have no where to hide. Snapdragon 809, 3gb ram & adreno 330 get for 15k. Game. Set. Match xiaomi. As regards after sales support, I have 3 points.. 1. Xiaomi have tremendous respect in their home market, China. They have earned it over 3 years by providing top end hardware at cost price. It's a well documented fact that xiaomi's main source of revenue is their apps. 2. The critical components like the SoC, screen & ram, are the same ones found in global flagship phones. Which means the components are inherently of premium quality since they are obviously sourced from the same places. 3. Xiaomi wouldn't be where they are now, if they have been providing iffy after sales support
