  1. Samsung launched some good phones these days like J5,J7, A8 etc Seems good, considering number service centres, availability of spare parts in local stores(even cheaper spares from local brands available for such big brands) , resale value etc etc

  2. Not a Samsung fanboy but its OK. I think most of you did not visit service centers of so called vfm phone companies, most of them don’t have any..

    1. Vicky, no offense.. but now a days the replenishment of phones happens quite fast.. back in 2010 people used to have a cycle of 2 years or so.. now they keep changing in 6-8 months

      I know many and even I am the one who belong to the same group.. have a mid price phone and change it within 6-8 months.. I had no problem with any of my so called phone till now!


  3. Samsung please get the market survey before you launch any product.. Days are gone when people bought your stuff for brand.. Now you are somehow creating a fear im mind of people about price drop! Please wake up before its too late!

  4. Too much overpriced as usual samsung always does.
    Should be priced below rs. 25000..

  5. Ram should have been 3GB/ 4GB…..hopefully the price will drop after 6 months to around 25k.

  6. Samsung galaxy s6 is better buy than this one then…..! Samsung always..and always…weired price strategy…..always…!
