The new midrange: best Android phones with HD 720p displays
The fight in the mobile phone universe is now shifting midstream, after five years of flagship brawl running unabated. All players are suffering from a flagship fatigue and market saturation at the high-end, so they are reshifting positions for the exploding Android midrange opportunity.
