Things to avoid

  1. MediaTek smartphones, as they don’t release source codes development for these device will be tough.
  2. Phones from Oppo and Vivo are overpriced. You don’t get value for money. For example Vivo v7 Plus has Snapdragon 450 processor and the phone is priced at 22K, which is pointless.
  3. Avoid Intex and Mirocmax as they have extremely poor development( except Micromax’s Yu series).
  4. Avoid Lyf and Karbonn, though they are value for money but their build quality sucks.
  5. Panasonic as all their smartphones run only MediaTek processor.

This post is people who want the best smartphone under a particular price segment. As we mentioned some points above, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy those smartphones. Comparing Micromax’s Dual Note with MI A1, its obvious that you will buy MI smartphones because of Google’e Android One. The major problem with Indian Smartphone maker is they try to either dominate budget or Premium segment smartphone.

What do you think about the latest Google Pixel 2? Can it beat iPhone 8 Plus?
