Abstract

Today the first thing that we look for before moving out of our house is our cell phone. This gadget has made possible for us to keep in touch with the entire globe irrespective of where we are. The first ever mobile phone which was commercially available was DynaTAC 8000x but that was the era when not many people could afford it. Contrary to this, today is the time where every nine out of ten people have their personal cell phones. This to a certain limit was made possible by Reliance. It came out with affordable CDMA cell phones which even the lower class population of India could afford. Although these companies have created a benchmark for themselves, they have not really been the leading brands of the industry in terms of variation, style, preference, promotion etc. To a certain extent, it has been noticed that Nokia has been the preference of the people due to its variety, style and longitivity. Nokia has been the leading smart phone brand in the industry for several years. For long it has maintained its credibility, keeping itself connected with the clients. The loyalty that its customers had for the company was strong enough for them to not go in search for other brands. Samsung, on the contrary wasn’t doing very well in the market. Its designs and applications were constantly failing. Therefore the fact that Samsung is now the leading brand in our country has a lot aspects attached to it. There have been uncompromising strategies put behind the success of Samsung. From a very nominal smart phone company, it has risen to the most popular smart phone company in India. Its has been noticed that with the incoming of new handsets and softwares, there has been a change even in its promotional activities. Nokia, which in the past was loaded with new launches like the N series or the E series, suddenly came to a halt. This was when the Samsung started coming up with its touch screen Corby phones. Therefore this study will be executed to mark the difference in the marketing strategies of Samsung at its stage of rival, also comparing it to the parallel Nokia Advertisements.
