The number of good smartphones on the market is increasing these days. However, the question remains, "Are these smartphones truly so good?" Smartphone makers are putting in a lot of effort to entice additional customers to join their ranks.

As a result, they adopt a variety of techniques, including selling it at a lower price than their competitors, offering extended warranties, and, most crucially, including gimmicky features on their devices. Companies like VIVO and OPPO drew a lot of attention in early 2015 by including high-megapixel cameras on their phones, but with subpar sensors.

Following that, Redmi entered the market by offering smartphones with large battery capacities. In the marketing field, strategies like these are becoming more common. The following are aspects that Smartphone manufacturers should avoid including in their devices:

Triple or quad cameras:  

Quad camera

          One of the most current smartphone features is triple or quad cameras. Smartphones with 3-4 cameras are becoming available even in midrange versions. The terrible issue is that these cameras aren't nearly as useful as those found in flagship models.

Macro and depth sensors cameras are simply added to smartphones in order to attract more clients. Even though these cameras performed admirably in flagship models, they fell short in midrange ones.

Curved displays: 

Displays in smartphone

          Most of the leading smartphones have these slightly curved displays. Even though it appears to be lovely, it is quite difficult to use. Samsung was the first to implement this in their S line of smartphones.

However, after getting numerous complaints from consumers and tech reviewers, they have lowered the size of the curve slightly. Meanwhile, firms such as Oneplus and Vivo continue to keep this on their devices, despite the fact that it is extremely inconvenient to use.

Not including headphone jack:

          Smartphone designers are removing the headphone jack in the aim of making place for bigger batteries. But the question is, "Is it worth it?" For consumers of mid-range and low-cost smartphones, Bluetooth earphones are still out of reach. It's not worth it to sacrifice the headphone connection in order to get a 500mAh battery.

Attractive glass back designs: 

Back design

              These glassy back coatings were first used in flagship models in order to facilitate wireless charging. However, today's midrange and even low-cost smartphones include glass back designs, which are more brittle and a gimmick, and they don't even support wireless charging.

Missing out the physical LED notification lights: 

Physical led notification light

             In order to lower the size of bezels on smartphones, manufacturers have discontinued including physical led notifications. In cellphones with an always-on display, it's allowed. Consumers of other cell phones, on the other hand, are so irritated that they constantly check their phones to see if they have received any unread messages.

What the smartphone companies should actually do? 

            They could save money by deleting the third and fourth cameras and replacing them with a better primary camera, or they could utilize the money to give customers dual speakers. The headphone jack should be included. They should make 'always on displays' available for phones that don't have physical LED lighting.
