China’s best smartphone brand

15 Jul

One of the few Chinese homegrown brands that actually has a good, even cool, reputation is Xiaomi. It’s actually been called China’s Apple when it comes to smartphones because it’s supposedly just as cool and stylish. I can’t verify that, but the company’s growth, stats (No. 3 in sales right behind Samsung and Apple) and fans do testify to its popularity. Unlike other Chinese companies that make smartphones like Huawei, ZTE and Lenovo, Xiaomi is strictly a smartphone company though it has branched off into devices like tablets and HDTVs. More impressively, it hardly spends on ads and marketing and sells its phones directly online. Learn a bit more about Xiaomi and its entrepreneur founder here. Xiaomi has continued to expand overseas by launching with India this week (it is already available in Taiwan, Singapore, Philippines and Malaysia). However, Xiaomi has a long way to go before it can really become a popular brand outside of China.
