There was a time when you had to splash some serious cash to buy a smartphone with top-of-the-line features. Nearly a decade ago, it was a two-horse race between Samsung and Apple, where both brands competed against each other for market dominance.
Their premium smartphones were catered to the high-end consumer segment, while the budget and mid-range consumers had to settle for smartphones that weren’t particularly awe-inspiring.
However, brands like Xiaomi, Realme and Vivo have now changed the trend, with almost all the smartphone brands (except for Apple) focusing on the mid-range and upper mid-range consumer segments.
More recently, even OnePlus announced that they were going back to square one, and their latest smartphone model, OnePlus Nord will be conveniently priced, so that even the mid-range and upper mid-range consumers can purchase the smartphone.
Thus, you can now buy feature-rich smartphones without burning a hole in your wallet. To help you with your next purchase, we have curated a list of smartphones that come with impressive features, and provide a great user experience to the consumers.
