Bad boy Samsung holds control of 23 % of India in Q3 — IDC

However, during the 3rd quarter of 2014 which ended in September, the Galaxy smartphones maker accounted for 23.3 % of all smartphones sold in the period, retaining it’s number one spot in the important market.
India as a whole was complimented for becoming the biggest smartphone industry in it’s region. The Indian smartphone market outshone other emerging markets in the Asia Pacific region in terms of quarter-over- quarter growth,” IDC explained in their report .”This is the second consecutive quarter of more than 80 per cent year-on-year growth for smartphones, reflecting robust end-user demand.”
“Smartphone with screen size between 4.5-inch and 5.5-inch are seen as the sweet spot for consumer preference. Consumer need higher screen size phone to enjoy media content and with the 4G rollout expected in CY2015, we expect Phablets segment to pick up again,” the world-class analyst spoke through their Research ManagerClient, Kiran Kumar.
India is expected to outgrow Japan as the fastest-growing smartphone economy in a short time and that is still possible by the end of this year.
