Time to say goodbye to China instead. This is the best time.


Well before going hardware way can we atleast do away with chinese apps tiktok, UC, Helo, and many more likewise


What are the Indian alternatives to these Chinese companies?? The problem is with the startup ecosystem in the country. There is hardly any Indian startups who are running on their own…Indian companies need to step up or else people will have no option but to buy these chinese phones..

GG, the Indian version of Xiaomi, Realme, Asus Zenfone, etc don’t exist, unless you’re talking about Lava, Xolo, Karbonn, Micromax etc. They all failed. Xiaomi, Realme are Chinese companies using the make in India initiative. Parts are sourced from China and all. So we’re literally buying from China. That’s never gonna stop.

@KF: I know. Better to buy Korean products instead which have lesser percentage of China made internal components. I have said this before already.

PS: There is no Indian mobile manufacturing company.
