Things are not looking good for Samsung in future after exploding Note 7 and 40% Samsung users not willing to use Samsung smartphones in future is alarming.
With the recent events involving the recall and discontinuation of the Galaxy Noe 7 many consumers are left baffled as there is no direct replacement for the mobile device. A latest survey conducted by Ecommerce Solutions which has followed this whole scenario closely asked almost 1020 US based Samsung mobile users if they would ever opt for Samsung again.
Interestingly 40 replied no and about 46 replied in the affirmative. Now many of those who replied ‘no’ had recently became Samsung users. About 30 percent who said good bye to Samsung are planning to go for the iPhone 7. However most amusingly, the 8 percent who are remaining loyal to Android are looking forward to the Google Pixel.
It’s still not evident as to how the Pixel duo to be introduced by Google will perform. The advertisements seem to be attractive much and Google might actually take an advantage because of the Samsung recall situation and the void that has left many Samsung users disappointed. Google has spent much on advertising even though the phones haven’t been released yet. Other mobile companies should learn from Google.
For instance LG should take a step up and increase its marketing for V20 if it wants to cash in on the void left by Samsung. Pixel however will be directly competing with Apple with the same pricing and memory options. The only drawback is the exclusive deal which comes with Verizon. Most people will find it very strange to not find Pixel and AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint stores.
Google in fact has to advertise the online Google Store more if it wants to see a boost in the Pixel selling race but it may be possible Verizon doesn’t allow that.
