With OEMs saving consumers who don’t have the luxury of purchasing fancy phones by making more affordable phones without compromising on quality, consumers have been able to streamline their search to specific features which would deliver substantial value to them, like – does the smartphone have the best camera quality? Is the battery life strong to go days without charging? How vibrant is the display with color reproduction? How many gigabytes is the internal storage?
