Every year, smartphone brands unveil models that are far superior to their predecessors. Whether we talk about premium smartphones like the iPhones or the Samsung Galaxy S-series phones, or mid-range models from brands like Xiaomi, Realme, Oppo and Vivo, there is a chasm in terms of features and responsiveness between the latest models, and the previous year’s offerings. With the latest mobile phones offering a better user experience, and housing best-in-class features, consumers are forced to change their handsets almost every 12 – 18 months.
