First, consumers finally realized the futility of all Android and iOS tablets in all spheres, in addition to entertainment, secondly, the country has been growing demand for phablets. Today they surpassed tablets.
Phablets are smartphones with screens between 5.5 inches and above, meaning they are compact tablets that you can call.
