Today if you go for a new mobile you will find that every Indian Mobile shop is filled with Vivo & Oppo adverts. Everywhere you will find these Chinese companies advertisements.
If you inquire for a good phone, almost all time shopkeeper will suggest you Oppo or Vivo. The retailer at the shop gets a higher margin in selling Vivo/Oppo mobile than other brands, and that is why they promote and sells these mobiles.
If a person buys oppo or vivo phone, the 10–15% that you pay goes as a commission to the shopkeepers. It means you are paying that 10–15% extra from your pocket.
Oppo and Vivo smartphones are not bad at all. But they are not valued for money at all. I think the problem with Oppo and Vivo phones is the price to performance ratio that they have got. These two companies are from the same parent company. Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus are owned by the same company BBK Electronics from China.
Oppo and Vivo are continuously trying to decrease the price and give a better product to us. But still, they need more improvements. One thing I like about these smartphones is the after-sale service. If you find any issue with these smartphones, you can go to the nearest mobile shop, and the problem will be fixed very soon.
Before visiting the nearest mobile shop, have a look at Flipkart and Amazon, maybe you’ll get more value for your money.
