    Default Motorola Phones Market In India

    Why Motorola Phones are not so much famous in India, however I have used few Motorola phones in past and experience was wonderful, but nowadays everyone talks about Samsung and Sony. I know they are famous brands and they offer good quality and performance but why the Motorola phones are not famous?

    I think its all in the marketing techniques and brand play. I haven't seen any ads of Motorola mobiles for many months now. But there is hype being created over Sony, Samsung and Apple brands. Windows based phones are also keeping up with advertising. Phones are more of a status symbol these days. People always look for new models which are being discussed online and offline. I think these companies are spending huge money to make their presence visible in online market too which is definitely a must to win the race.

    Motorola was not famous for the past year but now, since especially after the launch of Moto G and Moto G 2nd generation, they have been quite famous. A lot of my friends are vivid users of the Moto G 2nd generation a.k.a Moto G2. it fits their budget and also provides a lot of decent features. It's slowly picking up and definitely rising and would be a competitor to Apple and Samsung.

    Motorola have taken a bit of a back seat in recent years when it comes to marketing their range, and that's in most countries, not just India.

    They seem content to rely on keeping the share if the market they've got, and keeping their current customers happy rather than focusing on attracting new ones.

    In Brazil, the Motorola won the biggest seller rank last year with the MOTO G 2nd that it offer a good system for a low price. But today, Motorola did not continue with the low cost, It increased prices and kept the phones with the almost same system. For Example: Moto G 3rd only improved back camera and front camera and a slight improvement in hardware. Moreover, MOTO X Style costs the same price of the Samsung Galaxy S6. Obviously, S6 is the best choice.

    A curiosity, Indians does not like Windows Phone, or am I mistaken?

    Too bad, Motorola is hardly seen in the market in Philippines. It used to be a good phone back them but it seems many companies has overtaken them. I used Motorola before too ans it is durable.

    You are right, Indians generally are a big fan of Android phones. But they follow Windows when it comes to computers. You can very rarely see Windows or iOS phones here as the market is flooded with a large variety of Android smartphones. Android to mobile has become very popular in India as Windows to computers.

    When it comes to Motorola, it seems that Motorola as a company is not interested in their business. They hardly do any branding here. Earlier their advertisement with startling line of "Hey Moto" was very famous among Indians. On the other hand other players like Apple, Samsung, Sony etc. spend a lot of money on marketing their products.

    I rarely see advertisement of Motorola. The "Hey Moto" line has been used for many years and it thus show that Motorola isn't spending a lot with advertisements. However, I saw an ad in an American TV show by which the ads were the same which is shown in the US.

    It is one year, since Lenovo following its acquisition of Motorola, is working on integrating both the Mobile business units. The delay seems to be because of the huge success, Lenovo brand and its 'K3 Note' in particular, is having in India.

    The question is, will an integration ever take place? Unlikely, I would say, at least in the near future. If you go by press reports, Lenovo expressed an inclination to phase out its 'Vibe' brand, supposedly to avoid direct competition with its Motorola brand, but soon denied such a move. Close on its heels, came news about the impending launch in India of its 'K4 Note'. If this is not confusion, what else can it be? It reminds us about Microsoft's takeover of Nokia's Devices & Services Divn., and subsequent reluctance to push Nokia over its own Lumia brand.

    And with Nokia planning a come-back in 2016, one thing is certain - True ''Brand Loyalty'' will never fade away. Be it Nokia or Motorola.

    I used to have a Motorola flip phone back when I was in college. I was even a fan of Motorola for a long time before I switched to Blackberry. I can say that their phone is really durable and that they have pretty amazing themes on their phones. I also like their ringing tones and amazing operating system. The battery for their phone is amazing as well because it can last for so long. Too bad, Motorola phones are not that popular nowadays and I haven't heard news about their merge with Lenovo yet.

    I love the Motorola flip phones. It was considered a big phone before and comes in different colors. Those were the times. I never thought I had different kinds of phones before and I even forgot I had those kind of phones before.
