OnePlus Nord to Samsung Galaxy M42 5G, Which Is the Best Phone
Posted On May 14, 2021
OnePlus, Realme, Samsung, and Xiaomi — all leading smartphone companies in India have started paying attention to the Rs. 30,000 price segment these days. This comes years after all of them fought to attract the masses in more affordable brackets. Last year, OnePlus attempted to disrupt the Rs. 30,000 segment with the OnePlus Nord. Many considered the phone as the best pick under the Rs. 30,000 price segment. However, Samsung and Xiaomi have also recently expanded their offerings in said segment to take on OnePlus.
In addition to the faster chips, smartphone vendors have also started embracing technologies such as stereo speakers, higher refresh rates, and ingress protection (IP) ratings for giving dust and water resistance on their new smartphones.
After years of slowly climbing up the price ladder, OnePlus has regained a strong presence in the Rs. 30,000 price segment since the launch of the OnePlus Nord in July last year. Since then, we have had Xiaomi trying hard to bear OnePlus in this segment with models such as the Mi 10i and the recently launched Mi 11X.
Of course, there are more waiting in the wings. Samsung has one more model lined up in the Galaxy A52 5G. And could the Pixel 5A debut around Rs. 30,000? We might find out soon at next week’s Google I/O 2021.
