Even after the success of iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3 in the Indian market; feature phones still sells in large number. The growth rate of smartphones has risen sharply - thanks to India- based tech vendor. Still by large Indians haven't migrated to ‘connected devices.'
High imported cost and less demand for handsets above Rs. 30,000, is the reason behind slow adoption of high-end devices. Here in India you can find get knock-offs or clone handset of popular high-end devices.
Apple iPhone is still the most commonly handset sold as clone device. Next is the Samsung Galaxy S3 and so on. These cheap handsets look bit-by- bit similar to the original handset, and cost consumers less than Rs. 3,000.
It is easy to import these knock-offs from China. If you are craving to buy HTC One - the new flagship from HTC, but unable to afford due to its high price then do check its knock-off. HDC One, a newly announced clone smartphone from HDC, will be available on April 1, 2013(via GizChina and Android Authority).
It is rather hard to believe that HDC will sell the device for just $160(Rs. 8686). Going by the look, it is as good as HTC One. The only difference between the HTC One and HDC One is the material used to manufacturer devices. The HTC One flaunts brushed aluminum chassis while HDC has gone for cheap plastic.
