Oh what a year 2014 has been. From great shopping festivals and mind blowing deals to super affordable smartphones, smartwatches and high tech cameras, this year had them all. We at MySmartPrice had a great year too, helping nearly 20 million users every month find the best price on smartphones, cameras and many other devices. Here’s taking a look at the top Smartphones, Camera and Tablets of 2014 and what to expect in 2015. This is the MySmartPrice Report 2014. The top lists have been drawn from our general website traffic as well as actual sales of products. Read further for details on the top sellers of 2014.

Quite a few high-profile smartphones were launched in 2014, but most of the best-selling phones have been around since last year. From budget devices like the Nokia Lumia 520 (which offered one of the best smartphone experiences at a budget) to the extremely popular Apple iPhone 5s, consumers in the country showed interest in smartphones from every segment. High-end devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Nexus 5 attracted more attention. Speaking of Samsung, its devices continue to be rather popular, with a total of 6 Samsung devices coming up in the top 10 mobile phones over the course of this eventful year.

Top 10 Mobile Phones (Sales)

When it came to actual sales, flagship smartphones failed to garner the same interest as cheaper, more affordable devices, which is a good sign of how the budget mobile market is continuing to see a major boom in India. But unlike previous years, 2014 saw a slew of phones that offered a top-notch experience at prices that were previously reserved for devices that barely chugged along even in general usage. Motorola’s Moto G and Moto E did extremely well, Micromax continued to see a lot of sales for its Canvas lineup, and the Xiaomi Redmi 1s created quite a storm thanks to Flipkart’s flash sale format, and because it packed some of the best hardware for a phone that costed less than ₹7,000 (and still does).

Top 15 Upcoming Phones of 2015 

2015 seems set to be just as interesting as the year we will be saying goodbye to. The Yu Yureka, part of Micromax’s new smartphone brand, has received a lot of attention, both due to its features and because it stole the thunder of another extremely well-priced and powerful device, the OnePlus One. Quite a lot of visitors checked out the BlackBerry Classic and BlackBerry Passport, phones built for fans of BlackBerry and physical QWERTY keyboards, and in Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A3 and A5, two devices that mark Samsung’s debut with fully metallic smartphones.

Our visitors also showed interest in devices like the Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4, which will undoubtedly be making an appearance next year and likely improving a lot on the already great Galaxy S5 and LG G3. Xiaomi isn’t far behind in the game, as both the Mi4 and Redmi Note 4G drew a lot of traffic. Unsurprising given how popular Xiaomi seems to have become in the course of a few months, and a telling sign of how smaller manufacturers are giving tough competition to established players like Samsung.

Top 5 Tablets 

Apple’s iPad continued to rule the roost in the tablet segment, with three of the top 5 tablets being iPads. The other two tablets come from Samsung’s camp, though as one can easily notice, it was Samsung’s budget tabs that raked in more visitors and not the company’s high-end range. Interest was low in tablets from other manufacturers, though maybe that isn’t a bad thing, considering how large-screen smartphones are slowly but surely reducing the importance of tablet devices.

Top 5 Tablets (Sales)

Tablet sales painted a different picture, highlighting the popularity of tablets that support voice calls at an affordable price. Four of the top 5 tablets that sold extremely well have voice calling capabilities, suggesting that many users prefer having a single device that can act as a phone and as a large screen into the smartphone world. Apple’s iPad Mini did well, too, but the trend was clear that it’s the low-cost tablet segment that’s driving the market.

Top 5 Cameras

DSLR cameras were the top choice of our visitors in terms of traffic, with not a single point-and-shoot camera making it to the top 5. Nikon is doing pretty well – four of the top 5 cameras our visitors searched for were from Nikon, while the Canon EOS 1200d also attracted a lot of visitors looking to buy a camera.

When it comes to sales, the trend was pretty similar as far as Nikon is concerned, three of the best-selling cameras were Nikon cameras. But here, point-and-shoot cameras also came into the picture. DLSR cameras are still quite costly compared to standard dedicated cameras, which is probably the reason why those point-and-shoots managed to make their way into the hands of consumers despite DLSR cameras coming out on top where our website traffic is concerned.

MySmartPrice recently conducted a survey among visitors regarding the availability of warranty on products purchased online. With recent news of brands denying warranty on products online or discouraging buyers from buying online, we asked people how many were denied warranty. The pictograph below shows all the insights we gained from the responses of over 20000 users. Read further for more detail on the survey.

Observations

  1. Among the people who claim warranty on products bought online, 54% are denied warranty at least once. This often happens at the service centers run or supported by offline retailers.
  2. However, it is also important to note that only 1.54% of all people who buy online have the need to claim warranty. Online products thus are of reliable quality in general and any defects are purely statistical.
  3. The process of claiming warranty for a product online is usually completed within a week or two. However, for over 55% of claims the process takes more than a month to complete. This is usually because of the conflict between service centers and respective brands, or because of lack of service centers in the complainant’s location.
  4. The problem of claiming warranty is more pronounced in Rural India than Tier 2 and 3 Cities. Most of the Metro customers find it fairly easy to claim warranty and get support from brands.
  5. Some of the popular reasons for warranty being denied are the lack of a bill from retailer or a stamp of the retailer on the warranty book, or in some cases because the product is over a year old and as a result not eligible for warranty. In the case of old products it may be because products are considered “sold” to the merchants who sell them on the marketplace.

Survey Details

The survey was conducted by means of a popup on our website. The pop up ran for a period of 20 days. 50 lakh people were shown the popup. Over 20000 users responded to our survey. The survey was objective-based with questions pertaining to denial of warranty, need to claim warranty, and duration taken to claim the warranty. The objective survey was followed up with a telephonic survey for volunteers who were denied warranty to understand what the circumstances were. All quotes used in this survey are from real consumers with concerns.

MySmartPrice Free Extended Warranty offer

MySmartPrice is offering free extended Warranty on products bought from our Laptops Price section. We aim to help consumers address warranty issues and in days to come shall bring in more such initiatives to make online shopping more comfortable and less risky.

Nexus 6 official

Since the Nexus 4 launched in India back in 2013, the Nexus series has seen considerable uptake in the Indian market thanks to top-of-the-line specs, a pure unadulterated Android experience and quick software updates at a price much lower than flagships from companies like Samsung, HTC or LG. The Nexus 5 was pretty much unbeatable in terms of specs and affordability when it launched in December last year, and today, it’s not hard to find it in the hands of the common folk.

This month, Google launched the Nexus 6, a giant 6-inch device made by Motorola that will soon be available for purchase from the Google Play Store and Flipkart. Like the Nexus 5, the Nexus 6 features the best hardware available today, but for the first time since the Galaxy Nexus (which never came to India), Google isn’t playing the affordability card – the Nexus 6 is priced at Rs. 44,000 for the 32GB model, and Rs. 49,000 for the 64GB model.
