Samsung denies slashing Galaxy S5 price in India, price shoots up on Flipkart

In a bid to set the record straight, Samsung today said it had not slashed the price of the Galaxy S5 in India. Samsung had launched the Galaxy S5 in India on April 11 for Rs 51,500 but it was widely available on online retail stores for lesser. The price for the white variant of the Galaxy S5 went below Rs 47,000 on Flipkart on the same day HTC announced the One (M8) in India for Rs 49,900, leading to reports suggesting it to be Samsung's reaction to HTC's pricing.

Of course, Apple did not announce the iWatch and the first generation Galaxy Gear flopped. More →

Samsung Galaxy S5 vs OnePlus One: David takes on Goliath

If recent reports are to be believed, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has been a runaway success globally. It has been the most successful Galaxy launch and already accounts for approximately one percent of all Android smartphones.
