Feature Phones Or Smartphones?

Cell phones have evolved hugely in recent times. They have evolved from being mere necessities and communication oriented tools to devices that combine multiple purposes in one. Cell phones are now must-have devices in this new era of increased social communication. Cell phones are now entertainment and recreational devices, work companions, information centers and our outlets for staying in touch with the world around us. However, there has been a widespread shift from feature phones to smartphones. Smartphones have suddenly become the most used tools of choice for a large section of the Indian consumer market. People are waking up to the multifarious benefits of smartphones.


Almost every major cell phone manufacturer is rolling out the marquee as far as smartphone models are concerned. The best part is that smartphones can now be had at budgets that were grossly unthinkable in the past. The question is do feature phones still have a genuine operating threshold in this market?

Experts and telecom professionals have been engaged in comparisons, reviews, analyses and other activities as well.

  • Higher battery life and talk time as compared to premium smart phones which run on heavy operating systems and other platforms
  • Ideal for those who are not really abreast of cutting edge technology or do not need the same altogether

When it comes to smartphones, we all know the advantages they provide. Smartphones dominate the used cell phones segment of the market as well.

Samsung vs Micromax

Two of the leading global competitors are now ruling the roost in the Indian mobile phone market. These are none other but Samsung and Micromax. The competition is trounced with these two brands directly competing with each other. According to recent research and market reports, Samsung still holds in excess of forty percent of the Indian smart phone and mobile phone market. However, Micromax comes in second place which is quite astonishing as it is still a young brand. It is steadily closing in on twenty five percent of the Indian mobile phone market. Experts see the Micromax brand steadily surpassing Samsung in the next four to five years. It is a stiff battle out there, one that has seen the dethroning of global counterparts like HTC, Blackberry, Nokia and LG.

This is another fall-out of this battle. Blackberry has been unable to innovate and the decreasing popularity of BBM or Blackberry Messenger has hastened its own doom in record time. Alongside, Blackberry could never provide smartphones at affordable prices and have thus remained niche boutique products for a restricted section of the market. Nokia sales have been slipping up for quite a while. It has recently been bought out by Microsoft and this may still have an impact in reviving the brand in times to come. In recent times, the Nokia Lumia series has still not raked in the desired sales figures in spite of a strong start.

This is where Micromax has steadily carved its own niche in the market along with other home grown companies like Lava, Karbonn and Spice to name a few. Micromax has actually triggered a price war in the segment with its affordable range of smartphones including the Canvas series. Micromax has always provided smartphones with premium quality smartphones at a third of the price one would normally pay for a smartphone from a premium global brand.

This is something that is eating into Samsung’s profit range. However, Samsung is still on top due to its innovative range of feature phones and its high quality smartphones. People are still going for Samsung smartphones in spite of high prices. This is because of the premium security, reliability and quality that the brand represents. Micromax is closing the gap steadily and is already wooing customers the world over with its line of new innovations and brand promotional activities. Who will win this battle for monopoly in the Indian market? Only time will tell as far as overall results are concerned.

Do you want to buy top of the line phones from Samsung or Micromax? You should visit online classifieds portals for a glimpse of the same. These portals will give you loads of options for purchasing used cell phones in Delhi or any other Indian city. You will find advertisements for selling premium smart phones and feature phones at unbeatable prices.

All you need to do is visit online mobile phone classifieds to contact sellers directly and purchase your dream smartphone without any hassles or troubles involved.

New Trends In The Indian Mobile Phone Market

Mobile Trends
There are a variety of trends prevailing in the Indian mobile phone market. The Indian mobile phone market is a temperamental one, going by present standards. Customer choices are quite finicky and sometimes quite random. This is because of the peculiarity inherent in the preferences of the Indian consumer. This is one factor that has not changed in spite of increasing modernization and globalization. Why is this so? Indian consumers like their gadgets in premium, high end quality. They want all the top notch features and other add-ons just like their counterparts in the West. However, India is the one of the most price-sensitive markets in the world.

Indians want their generous dose of quality but at a considerably lower price than usual. This makes them tough customers to satisfy. Alongside, it is an even harder task retaining one’s brand value in the minds of Indian customers. This has seen market erosion of top draws like Sony with its Ericson series, Motorola and even the best of the best at one point, Nokia. Nokia has always been regarded as one of the best brands of all time. Indian customers swore by Nokia due to its plethora of amazing features and solid reliability. However, Nokia has fallen on hard times these days and falling sales have accelerated its sell-off to Microsoft. This development may augur well for Nokia in the future if Microsoft decides to market it in a new avatar in the Indian market.

The Lumia series is fabulous as far as features and specifications are concerned but have not been able to capture the interest of the Indian market. On the other hand, Samsung is steadily carving a niche for itself as a luxury yet balanced smartphone maker. Its Galaxy series has something for almost every budget. The premium smartphones are more in demand due to their impressive array of features and their solid quality. Apple still caters to niche customers who cannot do without iOS, iTunes and other exclusive features.

On the other hand, Indian brands like Karbonn, Spice, Lava and especially Micromax, have been making huge inroads into the market. These smartphone makers are providing the best possible features at the lowest possible prices to Indian customers. This has propelled them to newer heights. Micromax is now steadily giving even Samsung a run for its money. Alongside, Blackberry and LG still possess high quality phones which do moderate business. Sony has revamped its smartphone line-up with Xperia while the HTC One continues to be another top draw.

Buying a smartphone in such a scenario can be quite confusing. Use online classifieds to find your desired used cell phones at unbeatable rates.
