Apart from the usual reasons like great design and splendid display, the best thing about Samsung smart phones are that we are offered a plethora of choices and the pricing is great.
‘I am looking for a Samsung phone with a display of at least 4 inches.’
‘Would you like to buy the Samsung Galaxy S 2?’
‘Yes, but it costs 30,000 Rupees.’
‘Then how about Galaxy R that costs 23,000?’
‘Sounds great! But that’s still a bit costly, I guess.’
‘How about the new Galaxy M style that costs around 15,000* Rupees?’
‘Wow, that’s exactly what I want!’
*this model was announced very recently and its exact price is unknown.
