Earlier, people had a lot of apprehension about Chinese phones. They generally thought that these phones are not as good as other established brands like Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, and Sony. But when they started using these phones, they realised these phones are as good as other brands if not better. Moreover, the pricing of these phones was very attractive.
There has always been a huge market for affordable smartphones because everybody can’t afford a phone costing 25000 rupees or more. Buyers from this segment often went for second hand phones because they were available for lower prices.
Chinese understood this mindset of buyers, and understandably came out with affordable models. However, they ensured that there was no compromise as far as features were concerned.
Therefore, most of these phones, despite being affordable, don’t lack in features. They have almost every feature that are usually found in high end phones. Customers couldn’t have asked for a better deal. They were getting cheaper smartphones, and that too with great features.
