Smartphone manufacturers are trying everything to keep up with the smartphone market trends. Let it be new colors, slim designs or a triple camera setup, every smartphone manufacturer these days is bringing new phones to markets with all these in-demand features to keep going. One can easily say that the market is dominated by Chinese manufacturers like One Plus and Oppo these days though the South Korean Brand Samsung also holds a good value in the market. So, let’s talk about what’s new and interesting in this smartphone market these days.
And now Oppo has come up with an exciting offer. Imagine buying a phone, using it for 3 months and then returning it to get 90% of the money back. Yes, you heard it right! For a recently launched smartphone, in association with Flipkart and under what they call ‘Love it or Return it’ policy, you can buy the phone, use it and if you don’t want to use it any more within the first 3 months, you’ll get 90% of the money back but the condition is that the phone should be completely in a working condition and intact. You also will have to return back the box of the phone along with all the accessories provided at the time of delivery or else some amount will be deducted from that 90%. We expect this strategy to work for Oppo but let’s see if it really does.
