Top 5 Non Chinese Smartphone in India

The Invention of the Smartphone is perhaps one of the best things that have ever happened with us humans.

When Frank Canova invented the Smartphone, he surely didn’t know how his invention would be amplified. Today, we have many brands looking to invent a new feature so they can boast to have the best Smartphone in the world.

The competition increases with each year and hence we people are spoilt for choices. But lately, with the India-China matters going from bearable to worse, many Indians are now trying to look for made in India phones that are non-Chinese.

This is because we want to reduce our dependency on Chinese products. While it’s difficult to remove them from our lives instantly, we can try doing it one product at a time.

Keeping this in mind, I have created a list of Top 5 Non Chinese Smartphone in India.

Not only are these phones good, but most of them are from reputed brands. This list is short but will cover every budget.

1. Apple iPhone SE 2020:

How can we have a non Chinese Smartphone list without Apple?  This brand is often touted as the best Smartphone in India. They always come up with flagship phones that cost a lot and every year we get to see selling kidney meme jokes. But with the SE model, Apple brings to us an affordable made in India Smartphone.

  1. A part of me is still surprised that even a decade later Nokia didn’t find its way back. In my college days, I don’t think there was any thought tk buying anything other than a Nokia. The Samsungs, Sonys, Alcatels, motos and benqs were far far away…

      Hey Doc, I know right. Right since the Express music days, No one could touch Nokia. But they just lost their way out. Only Blackberry came close to being famous.
