  3. These are some good brands that are Non-Chinese. Nokia of course was a leader till the Chinese smartphones broke their monopoly. Samsung and LG too are good brands and worth investing.

  4. Have been using the Asus Zenfone Max pro M1 for 2 years now and it hasn’t shown any problem yet. But the fact that I bought it 2 years ago, I paid more than the current M2 price. From this list, I loved the specs of Samsung. Will keep it in mind if I want to change my current phone.

    Sometimes, I feel there should be more to this #BanChina thing. Having Indian industry manufacturing goods for their own instead of just being production place for other European / American or Japanese company will be far better goal to achieve. Hope will lead to that soon.

    Exactly. That’s why listed these options ☺️
