  • According to the report published in Business Today on March 2, 2013 which is based on the GFK's urban market retail report on smartphones, Samsung is still the leader in the smartphone market although its market share has fallen to 35.8 per cent in December 2012 from its high volume of 46.4 per cent it held in July 2012. The consumer durable giant from Korea is greatly threatened by not only its global rivals like Apple, Nokia and HTC but also by the domestic manufacturers like Micromax, Karbonn and Lava. The market share in the smartphones market has seen a combined rise from 4.2 per cent to 12.1 per cent according to the same report. Samsung is making an all out effort to retain its market status in smartphone sales in the Indian market. Samsung has gone to the extent of lowering the price of its most selling brand Galaxy S3 over the past few months to beat the competition from its rivals. It has launched Samsung Galaxy Grand with 5" inch screen to compete with its rivals with the similar screen size smartphones. If Samsung has to compete with the domestic manufacturer Micromax's recently released A116 Canvas HD with 5" inch screen, it might have to lower the price of Samsung Galaxy Grand from is present price of Rs.21,500 since its 5" screen rival from Micromax created ripples in the phone market selling 9000 handsets within 24 hours at Snapdeal when released during second week of February, 2013. Samsung has also launched its REX series to beat the competition from Nokia's Asha series. Apple is strengthening its position with 6.7 % share and HTC is following with 5.7 % share. Nokia is trying to regain its image by bringing in its high end Nokia Lumia and also affordable Lumia Window 8 phones. The Indian phone market is growing at around 80 % per annum and is soon going to be the world's third largest smartphone market. The smartphones market is turning very volatile day by day and it would be difficult to predict who will be the winner in future since the buyers are becoming less and less brand sensitive.

    I could not get the individual phones sales data of different manufacturer's. But going by the market share, we can say that Samsung Galaxy S3 is the leader. It would be pertinent to note that Gfk's panels cover about 4378 cities with population of at least 50000 to compile its data. Gfk has even extended its cover to over 600000 Indian villages.

  • Nowadays it is impossible to find which is the most selling smartphone. Today the competition is between Samsung Galaxy Grand and Micromax A116 Canvas HD. These devices are awesome in their function and are available at a lower price. Micromax A116 Canvas HD is having a greater demand in the market and from a few weeks it is not at all available in anywhere India.

  • Hot topic at this moment in the Indian Smartphone market is Micromax A116 Canvas HD which is Indian product, still people purchase Samsung Galaxy series Smartphones - no other brand Smartphone can beat Samsung Galaxy series sales today, especially Samsung Galaxy S3. The reason might its international brand name and its consumers across globe, whereas Micromax brand is from India and its consumer are very less international/local.


  • This question demands a perfect answer. One of the leading companies in the era of smartphones is Samsung. Samsung has released dozens of smartphones, all of which are in great demand. So, preferring Samsung mobile may do good for you.
    Samsung brand include Samsung Galaxy SII, Galaxy SIII, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Grand, this are some of the best smartphones by the company.
    But recently released Micromax A116 Canvas HD is now the highly demanded phone in Indian market. It has cool features, good shape and good in look. I would suggest Samsung or Karbonn, rest is your choice.

  • We have seen a battle between the two smartphones Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Apple iPhone 5 in the Mobile market for a long time. In the midst of 2012 Samsung lead all the smartphones by selling 18 million units and now it has been 9 months since this Smartphone is launched and it is still doing very good in the market. But during the last month of 2012 I've seen the game getting upside down, where Apple iPhone took the first position in terms of sales and became the best selling smartphone by selling over 27 million units which is a great number to reach within the span of just 3 months. Samsung is ready to bounce back with its upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 which is to be released by midst of March 2013. So let's see how long will Apple be able to maintain this first position specially after the Samsung Galaxy S4 hits the market.
    So, the major competition is between these two smartphone giants. Also it may take a few years for other companies like LG, Sony, Micromax etc. to hit them.

  • Now for the question, as we know already that in the current era Samsung has become a standard brand for its smartphones. There are many latest phones from the company like S3, S2, Samsung Note, Grand etc. However, a normal person cannot afford the price for these high-end gadgets.

    Fortunately, the Micromax has come with a smartphone that boasts splendid features and specifications at an affordable price. The device has a great demand in the current market. Our Techulator has a seperate section for this smartphone. So you can know more about A116 Canvas HD there.

    Micromax has also released a good smartphone called A110 Canvas 2, earlier. This device is also having very similar features and specs, except some. Good thing is that it comes at slight low price than A116. Go through the following link to know the differences between these devices.
