So, what creates a large number of feature phones in the Indian market? In India, the feature phones are combined between the renewal of the Nokia-branded feature phones and reputation of the Jio Phone.

Besides, according to Tarun Pathak, Associate Director at Counterpoint Research, the price for buying a smartphone is not easy for everyone, especially those who are struggling to earn a living with low income. Above the world, it is known that there are more than 300 crores people who are living with low income at less $2.50 per day. They cannot afford to buy a smartphone with full of data services in the situation of increasing improvement in using smartphones. Therefore, a feature phone with a normal mobile service is the best option for users to communicate.
