India has arguably one of the biggest smartphone markets in the world. In spite of this, feature phones still tend to thrive in India due to their affordable price and the minimal user interface that they provide.
People from the older generation at times prefer using a phone that meets their need of calling someone if and when required. They are least interested in the gizmos such as smartphones.
Not only the older generation but youth these days often like to carry a secondary device. A feature phone can make up for a prudent choice of a backup device, even where the battery is concerned.
These phones can also be used to disconnect from the world of the internet or all the smart features from a smartphone. Feature phones have a battery life that often lasts for days, in some cases for weeks.
