With the explosion of big mobile phone companies around the world, we expect any phone on the market to do it all. Symphony smartphones let you do all that and more.
Who says mobile phones are expensive? Just because the bigger brands charge more doesn’t mean there aren’t other options. Just find a Symphony phone and you will realize it is affordable. Since its launch in 2008, Symphony mobile phones have taken over the smartphone market in Bangladesh. With their aggressive pricing and the first ever dual SIM phone in Bangladesh, the other companies have been left behind including Nokia, Samsung phones, Walton, Sony, Ericsson and others. Realizing that cost was what prevented the average Bangladeshi from buying smartphones, Symphony introduced affordably priced phones based on the Android OS.
