India has called for a campaign to boycott Chinese goods due to border intrusion incidents. Boycotting Chinese goods would mean fewer cheap goods for consumers in India. A reduction in the imports of cheaper goods would also push up production costs, making products costlier, thereby, affecting the consumers. But you are in luck if you want to buy non-Chinese smartphones in India.

You can get your next smartphone from brands like Apple, Samsung, Nokia, Asus, Micromax, LG. Most of them are not as competitive as Chinese brands when comparing their price tag. But if you focus on quality, most of the time these brands can beat the cheaper Chinese opponents. If you are one of them who likes to prioritize the economy of the country then you can choose from one of these.

1. Apple

Though this US brand is for upper rich classes, they are fighting hard to get into the upper mid-tier segment in the smartphone business. Apple launched 'iPhone SE' this year with that intention. If you want a classy logo and like to spend a good amount, Apple is the brand for you. However, this brand doesn't require much discussion. You already know everything if you are buying one, I guess. But always get the best apple of the garden.

2. Samsung

This South Korean multinational conglomerate is the pioneer of many technologies and has its stronghold in the Indian market for a long time. They cover each and every corner of the smartphone business. From low-start to high-end they have everything you can ask for. Here is the list of their latest offerings,

  • Galaxy J2 Core (6,000)
  • Galaxy M01 (9,000)

  • Galaxy S20 (70,000)

  • 3. Nokia

    If you want to read an interesting story of a brand, it is none but Nokia and you have to visit Wikipedia for that. Just know that Nokia once had more than 50% share in phone manufacturing. The company was sold several times but never made a comeback. In 2016, HMD Global bought the company from Microsoft. Since then they offered many smartphones. Here is the list of their latest release,
