外文标题：Samsung's India smartphone share sharply down in Q3: Canalys
SHANGHAI: Analytical firm Canalys has said that market leader Samsung has lost 6 percentage points sequentially of its smartphone share in India in the third quarter, due mainly to stiff competition from local and Chinese players with aggressive pricing strategies, a finding disputed by the Korean major.
At the end of the July-September period, Samsung had a 22% share of the fast growing but volatile India market, with home bred Micromax breathing down its neck with 21% share, though flat on quarter, Canalys said. Major gainers in the period were local vendors Lava and Karbonn, with the former displacing the later at the No. 3 slot. Motorola, without taking into account Lenovo's share, lost 2 percentage points but continued at fifth place with 5% share.

I am not surprised, since not only locals but also the Chinese are finding a ready market. I have seem many people switching who would not dream of it a year ago.

Selling same kind of phones wont work every time ..... You have to have some innovation. Finally the users shifting from android to other platforms... Value for money is the next thing being preferred.. So micromax Gionee etc offering more features in lesser price range is driving them ahead.

Samsung has to blame itself for bad business policies. It can no more fool Indian consumers which have come of age.Low on specs/quality and high on cost is hurting them and we are avoiding it when better options are in market. No more fooling Samsung !
