What is your budget for a new smartphone?27
But you know what's here and now? Price increases! This year, we saw all major flagships get a proce boost of about $200. While a couple of years ago, your average price for a top-tier phone was about $650, nowadays it's $800. Companies still offer last year's models at a discounted price, for those that don't feel like forking out almost $1k for a smartphone. And, of course, there are companies like OnePlus, who offer great value phones, which don't look nor feel like much of a compromise.
So, we wondered: are companies right to increase their prices so courageously? Or are users going to hang back and look for a bargain, deal, or just a cheaper product? How much are you ready to spend on a new smartphone?
