  • South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “The rise of Chinese smartphones” – below is their description.

    Chinese smartphones were once thought of as cheaply made, unreliable and not very durable. But in recent years, Chinese smartphone brands have made large inroads to take a bigger share of the global market. The Chinese models have earned a reputation for being powerful yet affordable, and because they support advanced 5G networks across the budget range. Major brands from other countries have struggled to price their phones as low as their Chinese competitors do. As a result, top Chinese smartphone brands such as Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo are seeing growth in worldwide smartphone shipments to the point that they now provide stiff competition to the likes of Apple and Samsung across the range of smartphone models.
