Economy in complete shambles
Export down 9% since march

Unsustainable tax rates
Deteriorating public roads and sky high pollution
But God forbid let these facts be hidden since a few people bought Fold, RIP LOGIC
It's hard not to consider Chinese phones when they offer phones with high specifications and low prices.
Some Chinese brands even provide support for up to 2 or 3 years for their entry level phones.
You can save money by buying a Chinese mid range phones and upgrading to a new version once every 2 years.
I am not surprised Realme is doing well in India.
Realme X2 pro is an excellent phone for INR 33000 all taxes included- 12/256 GB variant. That's 415 euro or USD 460.
As of now, I don't think a more vfm device with 90Hz display and top notch specs exists.
SD 855+ chipset , btw.
It'll be interesting to see the Indian Smartphone Market in 5 years, whether a new brand will come up or existing ones die off
