There is a hoard of high-end smartphones in the market, but most of them come at a jaw-dropping price. Let’s have an insight on handsets which don’t cost a bomb, but emanate a feel of some top-tier phone to their users.
With iPhones, Galaxies, and HTCs available at sky-rocketing prices in the market, we often wonder the fate of smartphone prices in the coming years.
However, this trend will never stop us from upgrading or buying a new smartphone.
But what if we could buy an awesome looking handset, which exudes the feel of some popular top-end phone, and yet is easy on the wallet?
Listed below are some of the smartphones which look great but also help in saving a lot of money:
Donning a similar body of Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the GooPhone N3 is a dual SIM smartphone which wows everyone with its appearance. Apart from the stylus and the logo on the rear, this phone has everything which makes it appear as a Galaxy Note 3. Not to forget, there’s one more aspect where it stands out from the original and that is its mind-boggling price!
Manufactured by a Chinese company, this phone is a feat of engineering which screams quality. Flaunting a sleek aluminium body and posing a laser-etched GooPhone logo at the back, the phone sports thin strips of black plastic at the top & bottom. Carrying a price tag of INR 13,400 for its 16 GB variant, the exteriors of GooPhone i5 definitely remind us of the classic iPhone 5.
Although it sounds and feels similar to HTC One, this phone lacks the specifications of the best-seller. However, it does impress everyone with its stunning body, scintillating looks, 4.7-inch HD screen, and attractive pricing.
Karbonn K-Phone 1
Well, we also have an Indian manufacturer in this list, which has on its shelf, a phone that sports a similar looking rear panel like that of an iPhone. An entry-level smartphone, the Karbonn K-Phone 1 comes at a price of INR 1699 only, and poses the same silver and white combination at the back.
It is important to note here, that the above-mentioned handsets resemble the built and design of some famous high-end phones.
When it comes to specifications, they can in no way compete with the original masterpieces. Nevertheless, not all are cheap knock-offs and some of them are capable of delivering good performances.
They are undoubtedly cheap alternatives of highly priced smartphones, but are great options for those who wish to buy a flashy phone without burning a hole in the pocket. The final decision, unarguably, depends on the user’s requirements and brand preference.
