There are lots of smartphone brands available in Nepal. They are for people with different budgets, tastes, and preferences. So, it is up to you to find a smartphone that suits you. Here we have Top Smartphone Brands In Nepal:

However, here is the list of top smartphone brands that we have chosen. We came up with this list by paying equal importance to price, performance, and design.

1. Samsung

Ok, there is this Samsung vs Apple on most people’s minds. Mostly, in terms of brands, you might have heard about three smartphone brands Apple, Samsung and probably Huawei. Samsung’s brand value, according to Forbes, for the year 2018 was $47.6 billion a lot less than of Apple. But we still think Samsung must be the number one smartphone brand for its durability, range of phones. Moreover, most Nepalis cannot afford Apple.

2. Apple

In 2018, Apple’s brand value in the market was $182.8 billion. This is far more than that of Samsung. But taking account of affordability, we think Apple is second to Samsung in terms of brand importance and visibility.

3. Huawei 

According to the 2019 first-quarter report, Huawei is second to Samsung in terms of market share. However, the main difference is that Huawei is extremely competitive in terms of pricing without sacrificing too much in quality.

4. Xiaomi

Xiaomi is another quality smartphone brand based in Beijing. During its initial years, Xiaomi used to be labeled as an iPhone copycat. However, now Xiaomi has changed itself. They have now become one of the most heard and economical brands in Nepal.

5. Oppo

These smartphones are designed to take clear and crisp pictures. They are like our next best smartphone brand Vivo on the list. However, most Oppos have metallic bodies making them attractive among consumers. Moreover, Oppo users swear by its audio quality and speed as well.

6. Vivo

Vivo as a brand makes low-cost and mid-range phones. This brand is built around their cameras to provide a better experience for people addicted to selfies. Vivos are often perceived to be little behind than Oppos.

7. OnePlus

OnePlus phones are quite good and can easily compete with other quality but highly-priced brands like Apple and Samsung. However, people have complained of faults and defects that the manufacturer just ignored. So, please do your homework before buying.
