One in three Indian users are planning to purchase their next mobile phone in the Rs 10,000-Rs 15,000 price range, a new survey said on Monday, adding that Xiaomi is the most preferred brand for consumers’ next purchase in this segment.
While two in three users are planning to buy a mid or high-end phone in India, four in five users are satisfied with their current smartphones, said “Consumer Lens”, a global research programme by Counterpoint Research.
“Mobile phone users in India are becoming more sophisticated as many of them are on their second or third smartphone. We have seen advanced features diffusing through the mid-tier segment faster than ever before and users are finding these features attractive enough to upgrade,” said Pavel Naiya, Senior Analyst, Consumer Lens.
It took less than six months for some of the key flagship features of 2018 to reach the mid-tier market.
“This is likely the reason that one in three respondents in our survey are planning to spend Rs 10,000-Rs 15,000 on their next smartphone purchase,” Naiya added.
OnePlus is the preferred brand in the fast growing Rs 25,000 to Rs 40,000 segment, where consumers are looking for premium experiences at affordable price-points.
“There is strong competition to acquire mature smartphone users and we see original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) becoming more aggressive and offering a stronger value proposition in these two important price segments,” said Associate Director Tarun Pathak.

What it's like to win a Nobel PrizeFew Nobel winners can honestly say their lives weren't changed when they received the phone call.As long as they believe it, that is. "These days you get these cold calls, and I thought this is another one of them," Abdulrazak Gurnah, the winner of this year's literature prize, told the BBC on Thursday."This guy said, 'Hello, you have won the Nobel Prize for Literature,' And I said, 'come on, get out of here. Leave me alone,'" Gurnah said. "He talked me out of that, and gradually persuaded me."Winners often can't be contacted at all, leaving them to find out about their wins from the news, their family, or even their next-door neighbors.

"Paul, it's Bob Wilson. You've won the Nobel Prize," he shouted into the intercom. "Yeah, I have? Wow," an utterly confused Milgrom responded, in an exchange captured by a doorbell camera.
