Huawei is among the top three Indian mobile brands as per NPS or Net Promoter Score, says a survey conducted by Numr Research, a market research firm.
Numr survey unveiled the NPS or Net Promoter Score for various smart phone brands in India. Net Promoter Score, popularly known as NPS, is a metric for calculating customer satisfaction and loyalty towards a particular brand.
Thus, a higher NPS score means that consumers are highly satisfied with the brand and will readily suggest their peers to buy the same product.
Numr Research's survey also uncovered certain interesting habits of Indian smart phone users. As per the findings, 52 per cent people reported that they currently own only 1 smart phone whereas 42 per cent reported that they have 2. Another 5 per cent reported having 3 personal smart phones while 1 per cent claimed that they have 4 and/or more. As per the reports, more than 161 million smart phones were sold in India in 2018.
