If you have 30 grands INR to spend on a smartphone of your choice, you will definitely think about getting the top of the class features in your Smartphone, you might look for the new launched devices in your budget or last year’s flagship devices because of the price drop. Though the last year flagship devices were having a year old technology, but still they are powerful enough to be worthy of the price you pay. As a matter of fact flagship devices are updated by the companies before any other handset, so they are somewhat future proof and deliver user experience close to current year flagship phones at least in terms of software if not the hardware. So investing money on last year flagship can be worthy if you are not willing to pay for current year flagship devices.
