Something a lot of people have appreciated over the years is the quality and features provided in the smartphone.
I remember to own a Samsung Duo before the Galaxy flagship rolled in. It was a good phone for the price.
Another reason Samsung holds its user trust is because it doesn’t differentiate between a 15k phone or a 50k phone, it delivers all its needful software features to its users.
