India's ultrafast delivery apps and Samsung's slow decline in market share

The inside story on the Asia tech trends that matter, from Nikkei Asia and the Financial Times

Hello, this is Akito from Singapore. With the COVID-19 restrictions over the past few years, delivery apps have become a staple service in our lives, and they are still improving fast.

One of the most common delivery apps here is Grab. I ordered a few snacks at a Japanese food store about 3 kilometers away from my house, and it took about 45 minutes for Grab's rider to deliver. When I lived in Tokyo, I used Uber Eats frequently. Again, it took more than 30 minutes for the items I ordered at a convenience store in my neighborhood to arrive.
