The technology is still rapidly growing and improving despite the feeling that there isn’t much to discover. The other factor that has contributed certainly in terms of price so far as alternatives to big brands are concerned is China. They make a large quantity of stuff using lower cost. If you are not brand conscious then there is an abundance of alternative gadgets which are almost as good and cheaper. Let us look at them.
1. Xiaomi Smartphones
First it was the OnePlus series and now it is Xiaomi. I think Xiaomi will take over the world in a couple of years time. They are producing 3GB, 4GB RAM and higher than 3000 mAh battery equipped smartphones at fraction of the cost of Apples and Samsungs. Checkout Xiaomi Mi5 smartphone specs.
2. Xiaomi YiCamera vs GoPro
Xiamoi doesn’t just make phones, they also make cameras, speakers and what not. YiCamera costs about half the price that you’d expect considering its pretty strong specifications. It has 1080HD video, slowmo, upto 64GB storage and weighs 72 grams.
3. Amazon Fire Tablet
It just costs 50 bucks. Well. It is going to be useless, you would think but no. Amazon’s new Fire tablet is, remarkably, even cheaper than the competition, and sacrifices little despite its low price. It is 7 inches with 1 GB RAM and 8GB storage.
4. Fujifilm XT10 High end camera
A Nikon or a Cannon of similar features will easily set you back a lot more than a thousand bucks but this one is a lot less. It is a mirrorless and not a DSLR camera for enthusiasts and semi-pros. They are more like compact cameras but with a bit more punch.
5. Moto360 Smartwatch
The most affordable smartwatch option on the market is the first-generation Moto 360, which you can buy brand-new for $99. The Moto 360 also sports a circular display and has the overall look of a traditional timepiece. It also runs Android Wear and has its own built-in software that can track your steps and monitor your heart rate, making it a decent choice for those who want to keep in shape. It’s perhaps one of the best Apple Watch alternatives to get, both design-wise and price-wise.
