[Poll Results!] Are you a budget/mid-range Galaxy phone user? Tell us why


Last updated: May 27th, 2020 at 19:49 UTC+02:00

Samsung’s smartphone portfolio spans across the entire market spectrum, from the very low-end budget and mid-range segments to the ultra-premium market where devices like the Galaxy S20 Ultra, the Galaxy Z Flip, and the Galaxy Fold exist. In a perfect world, a high-end phone that has no match in terms of specs would be the only relevant choice for customers, but that’s not how the real world works, or at the very least, not for Samsung.

Recent market analysis reveals that Samsung’s best-selling smartphone in the USA in the first quarter of 2020 was not the Galaxy S20, the Galaxy Z Flip, or even the Galaxy Note 10. It turns out that a device from the exact opposite side of the price range – the Galaxy A10e – was the company’s best-seller, and it was followed by the Galaxy A20. Earlier this year, the Galaxy M30s was a smashing hit in India to the point where it improved the company’s market share in the region.

With that in mind, we would love to hear from our readers who own budget and mid-range Galaxy phones, so we’re bringing you a new poll. We’d like to know your reasons why you chose a smartphone from one of these categories over a flagship/premium device. Check the poll below and join us in the comment section.

Poll results: The majority of our voters (30%) are budget-conscious and would rather spend their savings from not buying a flagship on other purchases. 23% of voters are hunting for bargains, and 15% of voters like to upgrade to newer smartphone models regularly, with budget/mid-range phones giving them a better opportunity to do so. 13% of voters don’t think Samsung has delivered a flagship to match their needs yet, while 8% care only about camera and/or battery life. 6% buy smartphones mainly for their social media and messaging needs, while 5% are more carefree with their phones and don’t want to deal with the consequences of damaging a flagship.
