It has not been a secret to most people that China is not only making low quality products anymore. Where ten years back everybody seemed to think that it’s only rubbish that comes from China, now people start to trust the Chinese and purchase more and more products online. One of the markets that seems growing fast is Chinese smartphones.
The market for smartphones has been expanding greatly worldwide and certain brands like Samsung, HTC, Sony and Apple seem to be struggling to keep their market share. For years they had been growing but now, while the smartphone market growth continues, they seem to be losing shares. Reason? The Chinese.
Brands like Xiaomi, Meizu, Oppo and Huawei produce great quality phones with killer specifications for a price that’s normally a few hundred dollars less than the prices we pay for our smartphones here. Where you buy a Samsung Galaxy S5 for around $600 dollar, a phone with similar specifications, the OnePlus One, costs $380 dollars with free shipping included.
Huawei is one of the brands that we start seeing outside of China. In Europe they have a vast share of mobile phone sales, and in mainland China they are one of the biggest company. Even bigger in China is the brand Xiaomi, which just took over first place in China.
As people start getting to know the Chinese brands more and more, we see the sales of the settled companies come to a halt where the Chinese brands are getting more attention and more sales. And if the prices of the brands that we buy now don’t change, we might as well be using a Chinese model as soon as next year!
Keep a good eye on the brands mentioned above, because you will be seeing them in your daily life soon. Huawei already sells its phones worldwide, and just few people missed the hype that OnePlus created around the OnePlus One. Oppo has big plans to go worldwide this year, as they just introduce the world’s first phone with a motorized camera called the Oppo N3. They also hold the title of ‘world’s thinnest phone’ with their Oppo R5.
