As the smartphone market continues to maintain its growth trajectory in India, competition on-ground is also heating up fiercely as new products make their way into the market. Given this, it isn’t surprising to note that India is now the second largest smartphone market in terms of active unique smartphone users, with the total base crossing 220 million as per a new report from Counterpoint Research.
The sub-15k category is where most smartphone manufacturers see growth coming from, evident from the plethora of smartphones in the market in this price range, all equipped with superlative features.
While this indicates the immense potential for the ever-growing smartphones market, it also means users now have become more discerning and choosy. From a consumer standpoint, gadgets that make their smartphone experience unique and possibly future-proof, are more important than a vanilla comparison of features.
To simplify the purchase decision of users, here’s a list of top three smartphones to consider when looking at buying a phone in the below 15k category
