  1. Trouble for Indian Gray Box wallahs like MMX, Lava et. al., but Well endowed economically priced Samsung mobiles will only come after 6 months.. because Sammy will want to clear stock of all the low end junk it has put into market as low end phones.

    • Sammy is already testing SM- G350E. It is just waiting for right timing to launch it. But I am sure it won’t sell at 7k…demand will take the price high as it will not be flipkart selling it exclusively.

  2. The real action in India will
    be at >7k price point i.e. vis a vis Moto E, and the battle can be for 10
    million Smart Phones per year, during 2014-15, i.e. market of over $ 1
    Billion in India alone.Consumer needs max bang for
    buck.and good quality hardware.Moto E has some draw backs- but if Motorola brings a Moto E1 with
    LED Flash-5 MP cam with AF and front cam- it could walk away with half
    the market. Sammy perhaps will compete in 2015 only, and will get 25% market share if it discards the bloatware it loads its fones with.

  3. Hi, Any updates are available about this Samsung phone (Sm – G350E) – Competitor for Moto E ???
