Mid-range smartphones emerge as customer favourites this festive season
The world was still reeling with a global pandemic, but as the situations eased and businesses looked beyond the virus, the smartphone market saw a burgeoning growth. The 2020 festive season was marked by a plethora of trends in the smartphone space. We witnessed well-built, high-powered, mid-range devices that rivalled premium models shaking the smartphone market. Simply type "the best budget smartphone under 10000", "48MP camera mobile under 10000", or "best gaming smartphone under 10000" on Google, and you'll find an overwhelming list of smartphones to buy. The budget smartphone segment has performed brilliantly and made it possible for every household to have more than one smartphone. Though these cheaply priced smartphones offer a host of features, they compromise with some critical attributes like RAM, refresh rates, camera quality, battery life, etc. Contrary to these are the flagship devices that offer all the top-tier features and a fantastic smartphone experience, but you cannot think of owning one of those without burning holes in your pockets. Bridging the gap between premium flagships and budget smartphones are the mid-range smartphones that offer bright screens, attractive designs, and high-end hardware at affordable prices. A mid-range smartphone falls somewhere between INR 15,000 – INR 25,000, making it the most desired price point. Every festive season smartphone buyers go on a record shopping spree, but the recent trends have found them spending predominantly on mid-range budget smartphones. What fuelled the growth of mid-range smartphones? Though there are numerous reasons why mid-range smartphones have found a special place in the customers' preference list, we are listing down some of the most evident ones. A ton of high-end, attractive offerings One of the most compelling reasons for the mid-range smartphone to thrive was an upsurge in the premium attributes tripping down the price ladder. They offer the best of both worlds so that you can experience some expensive features at a fraction of the cost. Whether you're a gaming freak or just want your phone to not die down before the day ends, there is something for everyone. As per the Great Indian Mobile Survey conducted by Amazon, the top features determining customers' purchase decisions are camera, battery capacity, display quality, RAM, and fast charging (in order of preference). Flagship 5G drove up the prices Undoubtedly, the biggest reason behind the rise in mid-range smartphones' popularity is the recent boost in the flagship prices. This is primarily attributed to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 series being considerably pricey than the Snapdragon 855 chips used in older high-end phones. Moreover, the 5G- related components also contributed to the increased cost. These price increases made the best budget smartphones seem even more enticing, as customers could now make their phones future-fit without spending lavishly. The impact of COVID-19 With a direct hit on disposable incomes, the pandemic led customers to prefer no-cost EMI and other affordable finance alternatives, which enabled them to purchase their desired phone without fretting about paying upfront or the high rates of interest. The enhanced screen protection and insurance options, exchange offers, and instant bank discounts have made customers gravitate towards the best budget smartphones under 10000. These, among others, are the influencing factors that led to a sudden boost in the popularity of mid-range phones that had played second fiddle to uber-premium flagships for years. What to keep in mind for mid-range smartphone purchase in 2021? Mid-range phones have been a few shining points in a rather mediocre year for the smartphone industry. With an expectation for this momentum to advance in 2021, let's see some of the few essential attributes to look for in your next budget smartphone. Select the right screen Every single activity performed on the phone is through the screen, assigning it one of the most crucial roles. Consider factors like peak brightness, refresh rate, and build quality, keeping in mind that the faster the refresh rate, the quicker the battery drains. So if you are spending about 15,000, make sure you go for an LCD screen and if at all you are paying anywhere around 25,000, pick an AMOLED screen with punchier colours and better display quality. Go for the latest Android OS Since the speed, flexibility, and performance of the device are directly dependent on its operating system, buying a smartphone with the latest Android OS is of utmost importance. Ideally, any budget smartphone you purchase in 2021 should be equipped with Android 11, but Android 10 is also acceptable. Choose the appropriate processor From 5G support to boot-up time, the processor in your smartphone handles many functions. Your next mid-range smartphone should either have Snapdragon 600 series or the MediaTek G series if your mark is 15,000 or a Snapdragon 700 series or a MediaTek Dimensity series chipset if you cross the 20,000 mark. With increasing media downloads and app sizes, settle for a minimum of 128GB storage for your device to be future-proof. Also, the resource-heavy games and frequent app updates would require RAM that ranges from a minimum of 6GB to 8GB. Don't forget about the camera quality With quad-camera becoming a norm in the current smartphone space, do not just consider the number of lenses. An ideal triple camera or quad camera should house either a 48MP or 64MP primary camera sensor with at least an 8MP ultrawide lens. Any macro sensor or depth sensor, if present, should be at least 5MP. Anything less than that is only a marketing gimmick with no real-life use if good pictures are what you are looking for. Strong battery life If you are buying a phone in 2021, you wouldn't want the battery to drain before the day ends, so look for a minimum of 4,500mAh-5,000mAh battery. Not only this, our hectic life demands a smartphone that charges quickly, so select devices that offer at least 18W to 25W fast charging. Just have a look at Samsung's Galaxy S21 lineup or Apple's iPhone series, and you'll understand that today's top-tier smartphones are undeniably desirable. But we don't all have huge piles of cash to spend on a smartphone when we have top performance combined with gorgeous designs offered by mid-range phones. Not only do they appear and feel as slick as their flagship counterparts, but they can very well outperform them in critical areas. With the suitable device, you can enjoy numerous features ranging from a superior camera setup to excellent battery life and everything in between. Thus, if you're looking to buy a new phone in 2021, our ultimate advice would be the mid-range smartphones.
애플, 에어 파워 출시를 취소하다
이렇게 한계를 보이나.. 2017년부터 출시 소식을 전해왔던 애플의 야심작 에어 파워(Airpower). 애플 워치, 에어팟, 아이폰 등 애플의 다양한 제품을 한 번에 충전할 수 있는 무선 충전기로, 당시 애플 쇼 타임 행사에서 발표됨과 동시에 많은 이들의 기대를 모았던 제품이기도 하다. 처음 공개된 이래 2018년에 접어들면서 한차례 출시 루머를 전해왔지만, 기능성의 한계로 지연되면서 올해 쇼 타임 행사 이후 애플이 본격적으로 선보일 것이라는 추측이 전해졌다. 그런데 지난주 토요일, 애플의 하드웨어 수석 엔지니어링 댄 리치오(Dan Riccio)가 이 프로젝트를 철회하겠다고 공표하면서 사실상 에어 파워의 출시가 무산됐다. 2년간 많은 노력 끝에 열처리 문제로 에어 파워의 한계성을 파악했으며, 출시를 기다렸을 많은 대중들에게 사과의 뜻을 전한다고 덧붙인 것. 애플이 신제품 계획을 취소한 것은 매우 이례적인 일로, 이로 인해 애플의 매출에 큰 타격을 초래할 것이라는 견해도 드러났다. 매년 혁신적인 제품을 선보이는 애플이지만 아직 그렇다 할 무선 충전 패드를 선보이지 않고 있기 때문에 스마트폰 시장 경쟁에서 밀려나는 것이 아니냐는 우려의 목소리도 가중되고 있는 가운데, 현 상황을 어떻게 대처해나갈지 애플의 업데이트 소식에 귀추가 주목된다. 한편,  2017년 애플이 발표한 에어 파워 스펙 발표 관련 영상은 아래에 준비했다. https://youtu.be/4yVXOdJo7TQ 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진>링크에서
Which is the best selfie phone in India under 10000?
With the rise of social media and applications like Instagram and Tiktok and a host of similar platforms, the youth of the nation is making more and more videos. They are also taking evermore pictures and posting them on these social media platforms. Their smartphones facilitate all these activities. Therefore, a smartphone with a great camera setup and a fantastic selfie camera is imperative for social media influencers to create content and post them. All this is well and good until these teens ask their parents for an expensive smartphone to make videos. Fortunately, there is a great android phone under INR 10000 that has the power and ability to shoot, edit and post high-quality photos and videos on a budget. Here are the top picks for the best selfie camera phone in India. Tecno Camon 16 Premier A beautifully curved edge to edge HD display with a resolution of 1080x2460 is how you interact with the phone. All texts, videos and images will look crystal clear with the HS screen. This screen also has enough real estate to multitask with a 6.9-inch diagonal display. Other hardware that supports multitasking is the massive 8GB of ram and 4500 mAh battery. The battery capacity is enough to last a whole day of shooting videos and editing these 4k videos. There is also enough storage inbuilt to save all those trial videos. With128 GB of internal storage that is expandable via a micro SD card, you can never run out of storage in memory management. One also has the ability to have multiple SD cards and keep swapping the same. Now let’s come to the main reason why I recommend this phone to content creators on Instagram and influencers. Tecno Camon mobiles have high-quality camera arrays and very sophisticated image signal processing. The Tecno Camon is equipped with a 64-megapixel primary shooter and three other camera sensors. These sensors give versatility to your ability to make creative videos. With the 8 megapixel wide-angle, one can incorporate more into the frame than the primary shooter. There is also a 48-megapixel selfie camera and a wide-angle 8-megapixel shooter for those group selfies. This capable and versatile camera array supported by ingenious image signal processing makes Tecno Camon 16 premier the best selfie camera phone in India on a budget. Honourable Mention- Tecno Spark Power The Tecno Spark is a younger cousin of the Tecno Camon. It shares the same DNA but does not have the same array of features. T had a 6.35-inch sub HD screen with 720x1440 resolution. 64 GB of expandable base storage and 4 GB of ram. This has a triple camera setup as opposed to the quad cameras. A 13-megapixel primary shooter supported by an 8-megapixel wide-angle and a 2-megapixel macro. It also has only one 13 megapixel selfie camera. Although it lacks all the features mentioned above, it has a 6000 mAh battery, making it a two-day phone easily!
