India is a third largest smartphone market in the world after US and China, and consequently competition is pretty much higher. The Indian market is also facing an invasion of budget friendly devices making most of the devices flop in the market. Although, Swingtel has given the best CPU to their latest device, it has failed to give a better camera and screen resolution. If compared, at the similar price, buyers will get devices with 8 MP, better resolution and bigger display size like Micromax Canvas Doodle A111, Karbonn S5 Titanium, XOLO Q800 and Karbonn Titanium S2. Moreover, most of the devices mentioned above are phablets.
