Pocket and its sister brand, Samsung, have been the most popular brands among smartphones in India, and in the first quarter of 2017, both companies saw sales rise by more than 2,000 percent in the country.
Samsung is now one of the top five smartphone makers in the world, while Pocket is still in second place, ahead of Xiaomi and LG.
The brands are also among the top 10 smartphone makers globally, according to market research firm IDC.
But the company has been getting a lot of flak from the public over its manufacturing processes.
Pocket is known for its design, but the company is also known for manufacturing devices for the likes of Apple, Google, Facebook and Amazon.
And while its manufacturing process has been called “superior” by some, there is also some controversy over its quality standards.
The company has also faced criticism for the way it has handled its patent and manufacturing processes in India.
In a recent report on its manufacturing practices in India , an IDC researcher said that there were “significantly more defects” in the manufacturing processes than elsewhere.
For instance, Pocket’s “sophisticated” manufacturing process resulted in “lots of defects,” including “mold contamination,” and “faults and defects in materials, such as plastic.”
As of March 31, 2017, Pocket had $1.3 billion in revenue, up from $1 billion a year earlier, according, according TOI’s data.
Its smartphone sales grew by 8.9 percent year-on-year, according IDC, while Samsung’s was up 15.7 percent.
The brand has been growing faster than the market, but its brand value has been falling.
IDC said in a report earlier this year that the company’s share of the Indian smartphone market had dropped to just 5 percent in 2017, while its market share in the US had increased from 26 percent to 38 percent.
