TOP 3 budget smartphones in the Chinese market

Chinese smartphones

Chinese smartphones have long conquered world markets for the sale of a variety of electronics. But initially, the production of Chinese electronics was based on a standard alteration of European and American counterparts. But over time, the major Chinese smartphone and electronics companies in general have reached a whole new level of production. Now the whole world knows purely Chinese smartphone brands, such as: “Huawei”, “ZTE”, “Meizu” or “Vivo”. This article will be devoted to the 10 most relevant and competitive smartphones from the largest Chinese brands.

Sales in the Ukrainian market

Quite a bit of statistical information will not hurt. Between the beginning of 2019 and the beginning of 2020, smartphone sales from China increased sharply in the Ukrainian market. So, Huawei came in second place, after the European company Samsung, where the share of sales amounted to as much as 30% of the entire smartphone market. At the same time, the total growth from all sales amounted to 240%. But the fourth place in sales belongs to the company Xiaomi, whose sales reached 10% of the entire market. But only one conclusion can be drawn from this – consumers are less and less paying attention to the brand and increasingly prefer more budget-friendly counterparts from China.

Chinese smartphones, key benefits

At first, Chinese companies engaged in pure copying of European and American counterparts. Neither Europe nor the United States liked this; accordingly, huge penalties were imposed on China for faking and using the brand. But more recently, Xiaomi made a breakthrough in production technologies and managed to release the world’s first frameless smartphone Mi Mix. The well-known company Apple was able to release exactly the same analogue after a whole year.

Exactly a year later, the Chinese company Vivo showed another technological breakthrough in the global smartphone market, which released a phone with the ability to unlock through a person’s fingerprint.

In early 2018, another Chinese company, Huawei, created a completely new smartphone with support for 3 cameras, where the quality and performance of all cameras was much higher, than in the American counterpart from Apple.
