We are living in a smartphone era where almost everyone is in search of a perfect smartphone to suit their lifestyle. Some want it to be high end with unmatched specs while some are contented with mid range ones, yet the search to find best smartphone takes us all to our friends and family abroad. There are quite a few Smartphone companies operating in the USA and UK,  making really impressive handsets & we’ve seen our foreign relatives using them. PS: Not talking about the famous iPhone at all. 

Here are some of my favorite Smartphones from abroad regardless of the price comparison. I find people around me talking about these brands more often than any other. I have seen iDroid & One plus sets myself. Pretty impressive phones I must say. 


Lei Jun is China’s 23rd richest person according to Forbes. He has founded the company in 2010. The company sold over 60 million smartphones in just its 4th year of operations. Xiaomi was the third largest smartphone maker in the world, following Samsung and Apple Inc. since then.

Their smartphones are a global favorites though yet not available in Pakistan easily. You have to import them. Xiaomi Mi5 is the recent sensational device that I was so drooling over.

The names of founders of iDroid as per Wikipedia sounds as if it is a local Pakistani brand.

One Plus

Former Oppo vice president Pete Lau and Carl Pei founded One plus in 2013. The company unveiled its first device, the OnePlus One in April 2014 & since then it is the much anticipated smartphone model. Not only specs but the user experience of this model has been praised all over the globe. My brother also bought it 2 years ago from USA and was pretty much over the moon.

He has now moved to One plus three in rose gold color. I am just so jealous of him btw. It costs him around 45K for One plus three to get it from Middle East.
