Flipkart survey: people love notches, want high-performance chipsets

Peter, 23 August 2018

Flipkart partnered with First Post to conduct “India’s biggest smartphone survey” and here’s what they found regarding user’s feature preferences and the difference between Gen X and millennials. Be warned that there’s a non-zero chance this is a promotion for the upcoming Realme 2.

It seems like Indians young and old love the notch. And performance is the most important factor by far. This is where they diverge – millennials (18-30) want a good camera, Gen X (30-45) wants long battery life.

Anyway, it’s this last bit that makes us think this survey is really a way to drum up interest in the soon to be announced Realme 2 by Oppo.

I can't believe this. I hate notches with a vengeance. It totally spoils the look of a phone.
