Top Cell Phone Companies in India

Mobile Phone Market

Ever since the mobile telephone services were launched in India, the domestic market was ruled by the Nokia mobile phones. Though Siemens, Motorola, Samsung, Sony Ericsson and LG had also entered the Indian market but they failed to compete with Nokia as for as the price range and quality was concerned. Nokia phones are more easy to use as compared to the cell phones of other companies. Some time ago Indian cell phone market was flooded with the China made phones that were 4-5 times cheap than the ‘standard’ phones. They had ‘dual sim’ features and high sound features. These China made cell phone sets were liked a lot by the middle and the lowest level Indian society. These China made sets were not repairable and did not have any ‘EMEI’ number. EMEI number is the unique identity of a cell phone set that is used by the network to identify the mobile phone. Thus ‘made in China’ cell phones has created a security challenge because without them it is impossible to tract the cell phone. After 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attacks Indian government had banned these sets. Now some Indian companies have also launched their phone sets in the market that are vary cheap a compared Nokia and other cell phone companies. There are almost equal as for as quality is concerned. Thus Nokia’s market has dipped manifolds in India but it is still ruling the Indian cell phone market. MicroMax, Karbonn, Lava etc are some of the Indian cell phone producing companies that are competing with the global giants. Some of the top cell phone companies are as follow.
