    Other than new releases, what excites me is the price drop. So, I take these price drops as something positive. But just the price drop doesn’t make these devices the good buying options. Yes, Obi phones come with a unique design that looks pretty sleek. But where exactly Obi phones lag from its competitors is the software that is based on outdated Android Lollipop. And, Software updates are something Obi hasn’t included in their “to-do-list”.
