Nokia 6 Smartphone vs Moto G5s Smartphone

We know that Nokia had a commanding lead ten years ago. And remember the Nokia N95, it was once the most critically acclaimed smartphone in India. The company was the leader in Indian geography as well as globally, and had over 40% of market share selling more than 130 million phones in just the last quarter of 2007 alone. In contrast to Nokia, Motorola was playing out under the exactly opposite scenario. The company was on second place behind Nokia in 2006 and had then announced the Motorola RAZR smartphone. Which later on couldn’t continue the momentum due to the intensifying competition. Later both the companies lost their fortune and nearly end up winding up many of their stores and manufacturing plants.
