Smart decisions

Modern life is basically unthinkable without owning a smartphone, at least for many consumers. But they might have to save up for new ones. Average smartphone prices in Germany have increased, amounting to 489 euros in 2018. In terms of brands, Apple and Samsung rule on the German market, constantly locked in close competition. This is echoed in consumer surveys as well.
