5 Top Chinese phones which will blow the iPhone 5 away!

As I write this there are thousands of people all over the world waiting inlines to get hold of the latest iPhone, the iPhone 5 from Apple! But why by an iPhone 5 when these 5 top Chinese phones will blow it away!

iPhone fans and Apple fans in general don’t mind waiting for the next iDevice, as can be seen by the number of people who started waiting for the iPhone 5 4 days before launch!


5 Top Chinese phones which will blow the iPhone 5 away!

I understand that some people really want to be first to get the latest Apple product but what I don’t understand is if they don’t mind waiting why not hold on for a few more months and grab one of these much more powerful Chinese phones?


Xiaomi M2

The Xiaomi M2 will be on sale from next month but before you get super excited and start filling in pre-orders there are 2 points I would like to mention:

Gizchina News of the week

  • The pre-orders are open to customers in China only.
  • Even us in China will be waiting months to get our hands on one!
  • But don’t worry as international resellers will offer them (eventually!)

But this article is about waiting, and then blowing the iPhone 5 out of the water! So let’s see what we get with the Xiaomi M2.


Xiaomi M2 specification

The Xiaomi M2 is powered by the stunning Qualcomm Snapdragon 8064 CPU quad-core chip clocked at 1.5ghz and gets a whopping 2GB RAM. That’s it that’s all you need this phone is awesome. Buy one!

Ok, ok more details. The M2 also has a fantastic screen measuring 4.3 inches with a resolution of 1280 x 720 and 342PPI. Oh, and the camera’s are amazing on the Xiaomi M2 too with the rear being an 8 mega-pixel unit with 28mm wide angle lens! What’s more both the front and rear cameras can capture 1080 video.


Xiaomi M2 price

The M2 will go on sale for 1999 Yuan ($316) for the 16GB model. There will also be a 32GB version but pricing has yet to be set. This has got to be one of the top Chinese phones ever made!

    If they ever launch and are available in so that everyone can buy them rather than preorder or whoever manages to get one first.
    The thing with the Iphone is that Apple kinda makes it easy to get one too.

    Hi Andi
    Can I request a blog about the best Chinese phones CURRENTLY Available? It might be something you update every month.

    I like what you are doing with upcoming tech, but the fact is that there is always something newer, faster, better around the corner. Like many people, I need to buy a phone now (old iPhone died and iPhone 5 really doesn’t impress me). So I’ve been following your blog for about two months and I keep learning about the next hot thing but never about the hottest thing I can buy right now…

    Really keen for the M2 – as MIUI is such a great ROM.
    Wondering if it will work on LTE though.

    @Simon. Couldn’t agree more – perhaps there should be separate sections for goods that are available (with proper reviews and where-to-buy guides) and for up-and-coming shiny.

    You know what would I love andy? a comparison of these chinese smartphones against some mid range smartphone, particularly those using novathor U8500: xperia P, galaxy S advance, I’m sure the MT 6775 can stand agains them, and costing almost half the price!

    I will buy a phone when I am on business trip in china. Now I have heart there are maybe problems with the Androis update for other languages. Moreover the google app store is not supported by the phone, only a chinese store. Is this right?

    It is really amazing to know how people curiosity for a new phone can be exploited by traders. From ur note i see the price of oppo Find5 to b in the range
    od 450to500$. I saw the price from a online trader for the same at 1000$.
    Can the manufacturer ensure that before they release the phonr, they
    have enough of inventory with them

    I’ve found 2 types of Oppo Find 5. Can anyone tell me, which is the _real_ one: the rounded or the other one?

    • October 22, 2012

      I guess the ones we have seen are just mock ups or prototypes, however if Oppo follow their current style I’d guess the straight edge one.

        Thank you! I liked the rounded one, but I will very satisfied if I’ll get one. 😉
