Smartphones under 50k have gotten really boring this year. The innovation lies in the 100k+ segment. (Exception of Xiaomi)
I thought Huawei phones would get cheaper if they did not have Google Services. I was planning on getting a P40 Pro for 40k this year . They got more expensive.
Entry-level smartphones under 12K are still really bad in 2021.
I don’t think anyone can justify getting a new smartphone each year anymore. You might end up downgrading while thinking it’s an upgrade while you move to the next level.
If you buy a smartphone for its camera, you will end up regretting the purchase. In the list of things to consider when buying a smartphone, a good camera should be a the bottom of that list
a. UI (stableness)
c. Network Reception
My 5 cents. Currently using the MI 9T which I think is amazing.
