The best place to get Samsung phones is in a local grocery store, according to a new survey.
Online shoppers are far more likely to choose Samsung phones from local grocery stores, while smartphones from online retailers such as Amazon, Apple, and Samsung are often found on shelves, according a report from research firm eMarketer.
More than half of respondents to the survey said they buy Samsung phones online, and a significant majority of them said that they do so for personal or family reasons.
The survey also revealed that about two-thirds of respondents buy Samsung smartphones from a local store, and half of them also bought them online.
The results of the study suggest that local shoppers are buying smartphones at a rate that is significantly higher than online sales.
“Local shoppers are not just buying Samsung phones at local stores,” said Dan Gorman, eMarketers vice president of research.
“They’re also buying smartphones from offline retailers like Amazon, Target, Walmart, and other online retailers.”
Gorman said that local customers are more likely than online shoppers to be buying Samsung smartphones in the first place.
“They’re buying them from a friend, they’re buying it at a store, they are buying it online,” Gorman said.
“That’s why online sales are growing and the numbers are going up.”
The survey comes at a time when the global smartphone market is in turmoil due to various software glitches, and major companies such as Apple, Samsung, and Google have been forced to make big concessions to their customers in an attempt to save the market.
While online sales have been growing in the US, Gorman expects that they will likely be in the process of growing globally in the near future.
“Online sales are still relatively small compared to mobile phone sales,” Golan said.
“We expect to see the online sales increase in the U.S. as well as in other markets in the world.”
Gomer said that while online sales account for only about 30% of overall smartphone sales, the online smartphone market will soon become larger than the smartphone market itself.
“The smartphone market as a whole is likely to grow from about $15 billion in 2019 to $20 billion by 2020, according with the growing number of smartphone users and the popularity of the Internet,” he said.
