ASUS is More than Just an Affordable Brand
If we look at the current trend of smartphones in India, it is big companies like Samsung, Apple, Xiaomi, and Oppo that control the entire market. Even if we care for the advertisements and promotional campaigns that often appear in the print, electronic, and social media, it is again big brands that rule the roost.
However, there are brands like ASUS that have been present for a long time, and are known for their quality, reliability, and excellent after sales service.
Although popular social media channels like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter do not give space to relatively lesser known brands, there are upcoming platforms like Chingari, Vero, and Connected app which usually promote these brands.
It was one of these channels where I saw a very attractive ad for ASUS smartphones. It highlighted some amazing features of their new model that also boasted of improved RAM.

Of late, there has been a sort of revolution in the smartphone segment. It is not only exciting times for the manufacturer but also the end users who are now spoiled for choices. Every brand in order to grab a larger pie of the smartphone market tries to emphasize on its features. They often pose as if only they possess more useful features, and consumers would get a better deal by going for their products.
However, now customers have become smarter, and they take such claims with a pinch of salt. They try to get as much information as possible about a new brand. They read the reviews of famous tech experts, and also check the claims that brands usually make.
Moreover, consumers also try to understand the usefulness of a particular feature. And most importantly, they also try to figure out whether they are getting value for money or not.
