Samsung's major problem is pricing, bring the prices down and make it available to the common man and see if any other brand stands the test of time here.
True

Good specs and good price will do but is Xiaomi ready for that? There were many brands that came to the market with same story yet they are no more.

They didn't provide what people need: customer care centers and spare parts.

All of you arguing for Tecno up and down, wait till Xiaomi enter Naija then una go know how far.

If their phones continue to sell at the current prices, then its only a matter of time before Tecno goes into coma.

Those of us who use Xiaomi phones know how much attention it draws when people see them. And when you tell them to guess the price, they will be quoting high figures because of the specs. But they usually get shocked when they realise that the price is far less than what they were imagining.

Shebi Nigerians are crazy about battery? Y'all don't worry, Xiaomi's got you covered.

About spare parts, you won't really be needing them unless you are a careless phone user. Sure accidents can happen but unless it's very serious, their phones usually survive it. Been using my phone for more than a year now with no reason whatsoever to look for spare parts.

And besides, I believe when they come, they will come with spare parts too.

You seem not to understand my point.
Samsung is struggling in Africa because Africans are highly sensitive to price. With Xiaomi having the best price to performance ratio in the world, they will definitely dominate the market. It's yet to make an official presence in Africa yet it has a reasonable number of people using it here.
Now, you have to take this, there's absolutely nothing spectacular about Tecno. The reason why tecno is dominating tge market is because of ignorance about phone on the part of the market . There are many brands out there that can give good specs at better prices than tecno.
And you think Xiaomi will wrestle the market from their competitor just like that?
On the basis of market position, market shares, brand image, resources capacities, and domination power (degree of control over others), there are broadly four types of competitors, such as:

1. Market Leaders

2. Market Challengers

3. Market Followers

4. Market Nichers.

1.Market leader has the largest market share in the relevant product in the industry. It has a a dominant position in the market. Obviously, it leads other firms in new product development, price change, distribution coverage, promotional activities, and novel experiments. This is were tecno falls in
2.Market challengers are known as runner-up firms. They occupy second, third and lower ranks in an industry. This is what Xiaomi tend to be
Market challengers are capable to attack the leader and other competitors. Sometimes, capable challengers can overtake the leader. However this might be difficult task as a market leader enjoys large economies of scale. The market leader can reduce their price to point that the market challenger runs of the market. I don't want to bore you with detailed lectures on this as this just a surface note..
The reality on ground is that can Xiaomi compete with tecno based on price? Tecno is ready to reduce their price to point that xiaomi may pack out

It is the truth. Let's look at Samsung another brand in Africa to analyzed. Samsung is a top brand in Europe and other continent yet their products are not visible to all. What I mean is that very few persons use their products compare to tecno. Haven't you wonder why their products are not accepted by many Africans inspite of their popularity?

The answer is price. The specs of low priced Samsung phones are very ridiculous

A good example is Gionee. Gionee before the fall had customer care centers and spare parts in many parts of Nigeria yet their products didn't sell much compare to tecno. Haven't you wonder why?

Gionee products were more expensive than tecno phones. Secondly, they didn't do enough on adverts unlike tecno. Then, their chairman gambled away their fortunes

Bros And You can't compare their Functionality with each other..i have own Tecno,Infinix and Samsung of same spec yet the Tecno and Infinix couldn't live up to their specs but Samsung performed well and again that's where Quality comes to mind and that justify the price.

Exactly! Samsung do not want to reduce standad and quality like what tecno is doing. The cost for keeping to such standard is high price

I foresee this was going to happen.


Tecno will now start to man up now.
And stop using those mt6580 plastics
You think it's everyone that can afford Snapdragon metals. Phones like Tecno are there to care for those with small budgets or else many people wouldn't be able to afford a smartphone. Imagine a situation where Apple and Samsung S9 are they only phones available. I believe you wouldn't be on Nairaland with a smartphone by now typing that comment. Your nation is very poor and you are recommending them to use high end phones. That's funny.

Of the same specs you said? Don't make me laugh here. Tecno or infinix with same specs with Samsung phone will be N50k and 300k in prices respectively.
What I meant was that if Samsung offers a low priced phone at 30k, the specs will be so ridiculous that you would prefer buying tecno or Itel with that 30k.

is xiaomi ready to make substandard products?

because Africans like LOW products not quality
Not because they like it, but because that's what they can afford. High quality products costs money. You shouldn't blame them.

You really don't know much about the Indian mobile market. Try to make some research. Why do you think Transsion also sells their phones in India
I may not understand the India market because I haven't done studies there however I understand the Nigeria market very well. The Nigeria market is the topic of discussion anyway since Xiaomi wants to sell their products here. The way we perceive a product over here is different from India hence you can't use India market to judge if a brand will do well in Nigeria. Tecno has penetrated the market so deep that it might be difficult for other brands to enter. Nokia android is still struggling to sell their brands inspite of the publicity.

Now people will know what smartphone is not tecno with 2016 low range processor and then slam 70k on it.
If you want high quality be ready to spend more. The issue is can you even buy a high quality Tecno phone if Tecno makes one?

Phones have always been in the market. iPhones have been in the market but can you afford it? The answer is very likely a big NO.

So you see why. Many Nigerians may have bought Xiaomi at cheaper price, many wouldn't know if their products will be cheap compare tecno should they start off. Cheap doesn't mean N1,000 or N2,000 different but something reasonable.

please stop insulting Xiaomi by comparing it to those shitty itel tecno infinix et al wack phones.
Those so called shitty phones has helped alot of people. Unfortunately you only think about yourself. Just because you can afford an iPhone doesn't mean the low end phones are not helping other people with low budget out. Besides, which one has your country produced sef.

I hope you can afford the higher price that comes with higher quality. Nobody forced you to buy Tecno and itel. iPhones and Samsung have been there why didn't you buy them instead?

Don't mind those guys jubilating up there. By the time the feel the price tag of Xiaomi they will run back to Tecno as their Lord and saviour.
