Feature phones are hybrid devices, with an old form-factor but with the capability to run the latest applications. They are the best gift you can give this Diwali and here are the top feature phones which you should buy this Diwali.
With the onset of the festive season, we all are busy shopping for new electronics as a gift for ourselves or our loved ones. After Navratri and Dussehra, we are all waiting for Diwali, which will be on November 4. One of the most common gifts when it comes to tech is a mobile phone.
If we talk about feature phones, they are hybrid phones, with hardware and form factor of old generation mobile phones but with the ability to run new software features on them. You can watch videos on YouTube, chat on WhatsApp and even browse on the internet. They are easier to use, have a strong body and have longer battery life as compared to smartphones. These feature phones do a great job if you are using them as a secondary phone of yours.
