Commenting on realme’s positioning in Bangladesh’s smartphone market, Senior Analyst Arushi Chawla said, “As smartphones have become an integral part of daily life, their quality is increasingly gaining importance. Besides, product quality is also important for securing a favorable resale value. Factors like camera quality, battery life, processor, build quality and display are key considerations for smartphone buyers in Bangladesh when evaluating the product’s quality. Among various brands in Bangladesh, realme is particularly popular among young users in the affordable price range. This is because realme offers a well-designed and tailor-made portfolio for the Bangladeshi market. In addition, its innovative software and trusted build quality make it a top choice for smartphone buyers.”


This survey, commissioned by realme Bangladesh, aimed to learn what people think about product quality when buying smartphones. Counterpoint Research conducted the survey in Bangladesh, reaching over 1,000 respondents with questions in Bengali and English. Both online and offline methods were used to gather insights from smartphone users aged 18 and above. We anticipate the results to be accurate within +/- 4%.
