Gone are those days where we depend on our phones for just checking emails or calling, it has become one of the essential utilities for any citizen. With more high-performing games and other multimedia applications releasing in the mobile phones, there is now a huge demand for smartphones which can run a plethora of apps with no hurdles.

In response to the requirements, many smartphones will soon feature 8GB of RAM which is more than the what is available on an ordinary laptop. Not just that, smartphones are getting better cameras, and one day we may be seeing the camera performance of smartphones in par with the DSLRS.

Despite being in a market dominantly ruled by giants like Samsung and Apple Inc,  these brands are offering some devices that can perform as good as the premium phones of the top manufacturers. We wish our best luck for these ‘small players’ to gain prominence in the market. Hopefully, we’ll get to see some real competition soon in the Emirates too.
