Are people focusing too much on what mobile phone to buy? Is a mobile phone becoming an obsession that people just cannot get rid of? The answer to the questions is dependent upon your perception. With the world becoming a global village, there is a need to integrate communities and people, and to bring them closer, albeit through a mobile phone. This device is becoming the most popular electronic machine to satisfy these demands.
It is not only portable but there are so many options available too, like the iPhone 7 Plus, or the Samsung Galaxy A50s or another new company Oppo, with its Oppo A5s. There is a wide range of choice available for you to choose from, and that becomes a problem too. You just cannot pinpoint what your required specifications and features are. For example the Oppo A5s is a beautiful mobile phone to have but it may not give you the phenomenon of the triple camera that has emerged this past year.
Similarly, sometimes you are unsure of what mobile phone you want to buy. All you know is that you have a limited budget, and there are certain features and specifications which you just cannot compromise upon. In this context, it is very important to research thoroughly so that you don’t end up with a mobile phone that has very limited range of features as compared to substitutes which may be available out of the mainstream companies like Apple and Samsung, for instance, the Oppo A5s is an affordable phone with a smart choice of features available, but it does not fall into the status quo companies, so you might not hear about it as often.
Another problem that sometimes occurs is the price in Pakistan, of the mobile phones. This is because these electronic devices are not manufactured locally, so with the rise of the foreign currency, that is the dollar, the price for that particular mobile phone too will rise. So if you find a hawker who is willing to give you a price, regardless of the exchange rate, you will get a bonus benefit, which is something you should really look out for.

What is the difference between the two?
The primary difference between the two mobile sets is the wide distinction in price, which is basically due to the brand name. Apple continues to exploit its image by charging its customers excessively while its competitors may even be producing the same phone, or an even better phone at cheaper rates, but Apple loyalists will always go for their specific device. The same goes for the Samsung cult.
Although, it may not be as hardened, it does exist so however minute the difference may be, in an Apple versus Samsung battle, it is the loyalists who will win, and people will hardly even look at the interface, specifications or features that are provided to the public. So, be smart and choose your mobile phone as per its provisions and not just the brand you have come to don so proudly.
