Times are changing. And when it comes to smartphones times change ever faster with Chinese smartphone manufacturers catching up with the major players. Last week we asked you to assess the development of more Chinese companies in the market. We have the results below.
Samsung, LG, Sony and HTC are still top smartphone brands and that probably won't change anytime soon. But with Huawei Xiaomi and Honor, Chinese smartphone brands are gaining a bigger following. These companies often entice you with reasonable prices, solid hardware and innovative features. With these factors, Chinese phones have grown into actual alternatives to Samsung or LG devices.
In terms of sales figures the trend towards Chinese devices are becoming more noticeable. Huawei has become one of the top three smartphone manufacturers in sales. That's why we asked you to assess this development in our poll last week. And the results of the poll were definitive. 52 percent of you believe that more Chinese smartphones in the market is useful because there is increased competition. You can view the rest of the survey below.
Only seven percent of you thought that Chinese companies' entry into the market is scary; the vast majority don't think that there are too many Chinese smartphones. Furthermore, it looks like most of you don't believe Chinese smartphones are just a fad and wouldn't exclusively buy Samsung, LG, Sony and HTC.
The results of this poll from the largest Android community in the world tell us that Chinese smartphones will continue to make the gains they've been making for the last few years. We'll also likely see Korean, Japanese and Taiwanese brands' share of the pie decrease.
