Best Alternatives to Chinese Smartphones for the Budget Segment

Smartphones

India-china border clashes have lead to a backlash against many Chinese companies and the government has requested the Indian citizen not to buy any of the Chinese products instead choose an alternative.

Yet, with the high price to performance ratio, the Chinese Smartphone enjoys a lot of popularity in not only India but the whole world. As well, India tends to be the greatest target market of these Chinese brands. Some of the patriotic Indian citizens backlash these brands and now try to boycott the Chinese products. 

So here’s the best alternative for the Chinese mobile phone brands to be considered. 

China tends to rapidly expand its manufacturing capacity with its economy which resulted in the far more affordable products produced in other countries. We can’t say that there is no brand that can take over with these Chinese Smartphones? India does not have the brands that can match these for sure but, there’s a handful brand from other countries. Therefore, here are some of the popular offerings in each of the segments that can be considered.
