Walton Bangladesh - Walton Mobile Price in Bangladesh
Walton is a Bangladeshi brand that manufactures various types of electronics such as refrigerators, air conditioning, iron, TV, washing machine, computers and even motorcycles or elevators. Walton became the first brand to assemble electronics in Bangladesh on a massive scale. But they are mostly known for their Primo Series mobile phones. The market-shaking Primo X2 and Primo ZX, the world's slimmest Primo X3 (in 2014), the ultra-premium Primo Z helped them to gain massive popularity in the early stage of their business. The sale of the smartphone from this brand was rising steadily. In 2015, they became the third top-selling smartphone brand in Bangladesh. But since the last couple of years, Walton started to lose business to Chinese brands like Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo and itel for their superior quality, up-to-date features and affordable pricing.
Why People Choose Walton Mobiles?
Walton usually manufactures very low to medium priced Android smartphones. The Android devices from this brand are called the Primo Series. They have been known for the newest version of Android devices at a fairly affordable price with stylish design and feature-rich specs. So, they became a top choice especially for the young generation, students or small job holders who can't afford to have a very high priced phone but do wish to own a somewhat exquisite smartphone. But Walton has been facing some hard competition from the beginning. Another Bangladeshi market focused Symphony Mobile also targeted the same group of people and claimed the number one position in this market a few years before Walton came into action. Other brands like Lava, WE, Maximus, itel, Tecno, etc. are also striving for the same low-budget customer group. But one thing that distinguished Walton from all these brands is, they started to make made in Bangladesh smartphones. For this reason, they could sell their devices at a much lower price (since they don't need to pay only 18% assembling tax instead of 32% import tax) and this also serves the economy of Bangladesh better. But now, brands like Symphony, Samsung, WE, itel and Tecno are also assembling phone in Bangladesh in their own factory. So, Walton further went down in the competition.
Since the brand launched, users were objecting about the overheating issue in many of their phones as well as some servicing issues. Their newest devices solved the overheating matter to a tolerable level and their service has improved a lot over the last years. Another issue is the weak battery life in many of the smartphones, especially in the cheap ones. There is also room for software and UI optimization. If Walton takes these challenges seriously and offers more competitive pricing they have a high chance to gain the market back in the country.
