Ten useful Android apps for Sri Lankans

But thanks to Android OS now we can buy a fully featured smartphone for around LKR 25-30K. According to Statista, 22.1 % of all mobile phones were smartphones in the fourth quarter of 2014, now we in 2017 Q2 for sure this percentage has jumped to 35-50% thanks to affordable Android phone brands like Xiaomi, Oppo and Meizu.
