When Apple released the iPhone 2G in 2007, Samsung was just another small fish in a somewhat growing smartphone market. Back in those days, companies like Nokia and BlackBerry used to rule the mobile market with their newest and most unique smartphone offerings. However, the smaller market share of Samsung did not stop the company from innovating, and it realised a gap in the market for good touchscreen phones.
Phones back then were mostly limited to num pads and QWERTY keypads – courtesy of BlackBerry’s popularity within the corporate world. But, Samsung broke the status quo with its fresh take on the smartphone concept with a couple of touchscreen phones running its in-house TouchWiz interface. As sales slowly started to ramp up, Samsung decided to partner with Google, to bring Android smartphones to the masses. This led to the birth of the much-anticipated Galaxy S series in 2010, and before you know it, Samsung became the world’s largest mobile phone market by overtaking Nokia in 2012.
Even in a developing country like India, consumers felt Samsung’s dominance in the mobile market, which allowed the company to strategise its smartphone offerings based on the market demands. Since then, Samsung India has continued to invest heavily in the country’s overall infrastructure, most notably the Noida Factory, which is currently the world’s largest mobile phone manufacturing plant with an annual output capacity of 120 million.
Samsung India’s investment journey did not end there as the company established its one-of-a-kind showroom in Bangalore, India, known as the Samsung Opera House. Touted to be the company’s largest mobile experience centre, it perfectly captures how Samsung India has made serious moves in the smartphone market. And speaking of smartphones, some of the most popular Samsung models currently in the market include the Samsung Galaxy A54, Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy A34, Samsung Galaxy A14, Samsung Galaxy S23, Samsung Galaxy A24 4G, Samsung Galaxy A14 5G, and Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G.

Types of Repair to Seek Help
Before you decide to repair your device at one of Samsung India’s service centres, it is good to keep in mind some of the common types of repairs initiated by users.
Screen Repair: Being the most common type of repair for Samsung smartphones, screens can be damaged due to falls, drops, or intentional bending while the phone is in your pocket.
Battery Repair: Batteries degrade over time and need to be replaced. A damaged or weak battery can cause your phone to overheat, drain quickly, or not turn on at all.
Water Damage Repair: Unintentional exposure of your phone to water or liquid (especially the ones not certified by IP or Ingress Protection ratings) can lead to corrosion, short circuits, and even permanent damage.
Additionally, it is recommended to register your Samsung mobile phone or smartphone after purchase on the company’s official website, to seamlessly request support, book online appointments, track repair status, register extended warranty, and much more.
Finally, you can proceed to self-troubleshoot your device by downloading your device manual from Samsung India’s Download Center.
