Towards a Brighter Future

India is climbing its ladder to beat China in Production of mobile phones. Indian Cellular Association Claims that India has seen an overall growth of 350% from 2014-2017 in Handset Production. The telecom industry today is amongst the top five employment opportunity generators in India, creating over four million direct and indirect jobs. The Indian government announced the Phased Manufacturing Programme as an initiative to help build a robust indigenous mobile manufacturing ecosystem in India From local brands like Micromax to Karbonn to foreign brands like Samsung, Xiaomi and HTC, budget smartphones have flooded the market.

Data Collection

The Survey was obtained by circulating a Google form for Rating 4 types of Mobile Brands on a Scale of 1 to 10 (1 being Lowest and 10 being Highest). The data was collected from 35 people. This data was then transferred into an excel file and Anova: Single Factor was applied to it.

Data Analysis

H0: All four mobile phones are the same.

H1: Any one of the mobile phones is different.
