The reason is simple you get a mid-range Android phone, what do you compromise on? First, is build quality this is where OEMs start cutting costs, next up is specs; obviously, we’re not promising flagship specs but its better and far more optimized than what you will find in the market.
Third is sluggish to no Android Updates, this is also one area, where OEMs tend to neglect those mid-range phones when the latest big OS from Google comes. You’re highly likely not getting any Android Updates even after three months or after a quarter. So, keeping this in mind you should wait for the Android One phones. Which Google is again trying to revive and this time we have some quality OEMs like HTC, Xiaomi, and Motorola in the game.
