Samsung continues it’s legacy but have they been hearing it’s customers?

Samsung, the Electronics giant has been criticized by a lot of us and other consumers for their shabby budget smartphone department. Making branded and costly smartphones have been their trademark since years and for this, in recent years they have continuously lost their market value in India.

Brands like Realme, Xiaomi, ASUS, OPPO, VIVO and others have eventually captured the market, which has downgraded the legacy of Samsung. Though they have been making some awesome high end devices and been constantly bringing new technology to smartphone but in this budget era, they have significantly lost its trust in Indian youth.

Why Samsung had to make the Galaxy M10 and M20?

Finally they have heard it’s users and brought the new Samsung Galaxy M10 and M20, which are both part of the new “Millennial series”. According to Samsung with this series, they are targeting the youth and yes obviously to all those people who still trust on this humongous brand.

Much like what Realme did with their budget segment smart phones, Samsung has cleverly made its smart phones. They look damn impressive with huge display, they are well powered devices with awesome camera and yes with an insane battery.

Samsung wants it’s users to forget it’s pricey smart phones and eventually go for the new “Millennial series” smart phones that are way better in every aspect and yes it is very much affordable.

The Samsung Galaxy M10

The Electronic giant could never deliver an outstanding smartphone in the sub 10k budget segment. Although there was the J-series, they failed to attract the modern youth who need everything including

  • a crisp display,
  • a powerful processor to play games,
  • good dual camera setup,
  • an engrossing front camera,
  • smooth UI and obviously a good battery life.

Focussing on each of this point, Samsung made the whole of the Millennial series. Also, they made the starting contender of this series under Rs.10k. Named the Galaxy M10, this smartphone will likely change the game in the smartphone market and eventually challenge all its competitors.
