“What does the consumer want today when it comes to smartphones? Good looks, features, great camera and a price tag which makes it worth the purchase. If one broadly classifies, there is a section of consumers which prefers budget smartphones that can be used for a small amount of time and then upgraded as desired without burning a hole in the pocket. The second category absolutely swears by the premium price tag and treats the device like a child for a significant number of years and upgrading only when there is a dire need. Then there is a third category, which somewhere lies between the budget or mid-range and premium segment. Apologies for stereotyping here, but similar to how the structure of upper middle class families works, these range of upper mid-range smartphones also offer a gorgeous architecture, aping the premium segment, while keeping the costs controlled by not being over ambitious with specs”
