Reviewers get a review unit and hence, reviews were out. One or two weeks is fine. Anything more than a month is like dumping.
Pixel was released in India in first wave, We get apple products in second wave, which is better than the iphone 5/5s days where we had to wait till January to get the new iphone.

There's already reviews coming out and there's not even a release date yet at that time for our country. Who are we competing to? North Korea? "Oooohhhh look at us with all this tech released by first world countries nor kor! Don't be jealous kim jong!" That's just sad.

Me? I just run around on vacations on other countries and not find jobs unlike some others there. Sure my siblings went to NZ just cause they want snow while I PAY for them living there. I'm a business man. I make my money here. But nah, i'll leave soon before I turn 30 (26 now). But not because i'm destitute like you but to live in a country where there's no poop on the streets in every corner. Proud? Don't be a hypocrite man.

I meant to tell you, don't look at the past, but look at the statistics. There's no reason to be ashamed. Instead you should be proud that India is growing far faster than any other major 3rd world country. If you hate your country, then come here, and you will die out of frustration that we stopped growing for decades. Whether it's UK, or Japan, or any developed country, its the same. Staying in a developing country is huge boon for prospectors. You have so many opportunities in career, business or anything you like. Try to appreciate what you have, otherwise know this- There isn't a single place in this earth without it's negatives. Infact I would love to visit India, instead of US, or UK, simply because I have more opportunities there. I would rather live a king's life in India rather living a middle class's life in here. I am tired of this place and little we can do here with our life.

Samsung's phones have parts manufactured everywhere in asia like china (boards, chips) vietnam and phil for batteries for phones released in SEA. Almost every aspect of their phones have something made in either east or south east asia. Non in india. 'cause 1st world countries and their companies don't trust our country with engineering, only customer support, like you. Don't act smart when you can't even compose a correct english sentence.

I am not an Indian, and i don't know how samsung markets in India. But i know this, that you are the one who is more dense here. I am from Italy, and I consider India richer than euro countries overall, due to its huge economy. I guess rest of the world is also taking notice, but really shame on you, for looking down on your own country like this. I would never do that, even if we go poorer.

Dude, so does every other country in east and southeast asia! And they're way ahead of the release! I get it. You never left our country huh? That's just sad. Did we even get the dual sim version of S4 and S5? NO! That's in China and other SEA countries as my colleague bought his s5 dual sim in the Philippines! Samsung just started releasing the dual sim variant for the S flagships here in our poor country on the S6. If you mean we get dual sim and others don't. it's the 1st world countries like the USA and Germany and Japan. Why? Because they don't need other sim slots for promos/prices on other carriers because they can afford all of it in a single sim with whatever network they're on! I currently have the Xiaomi Mi Note 2. Did we get this? NO! Guess where I bought it: Taiwan! Leave the country every once in a while bro. That is, if you have the money. There's tons of advancement not just in releases but in other techs as well. Us? Bro, listen to me when I tell you: You'd be surprised to see CLEAN STREETS/ROADS/HIGHWAYS! Imagine that!

I am considering the s8, for 52k i get a free wireless charger,90GB jio data and VR , in E-mall kolkata.. This is a good deal, considering guys in US, gets nothing but the phone with Snapdragon for 45k
