Top 10 Chinese Phones Available on Amazon


jiayu s3 review

We have been looking at the availability of Chinese smartphones on Amazon. Here are the top 10 Chinese phones you can buy right now.

It was once a tricky task to get your hands on a Chinese phone, but now there are more ways than ever and Amazon is an often overlooked option. There are 100’s of Chinese phones available on Amazon, but we have picked the top 10 you can buy now. The following links are affiliate links.

UMi Zero

umi zero flipkart

With proven constant updates, a growing community and new accessories on the way, the UMi Zero is a good affordable phone with some nice hardware. Specifications include a 5-inch Super AMOLED display, 13 mega-pixel Sony camera and 2.0Ghz octacore processor. There is no LTE in the phone but 2GB RAM, dual SIM and room for an SD card all wrapped in a slim alloy body make up for that.

Huawei Honor 6

The Huawei Honor 6 is the slightly smaller, single camera brother to the Huawei Honor 6 Plus. The 5-inch phone packs just a single 13 mega-pixel rear sensor, but features faster focus and capture speeds. The Honor 6 also comes with an octacore Kirin processor, 3GB RAM and 5 mega-pixel front camera.

Huawei Ascend Mate 7

Huawei-Ascend-Mate-7

The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 remains one of the best looking premium phablets out of China of the moment. The Mooblight Silver version can be had on Amazon at a good price, and includes 3GB RAM, LTE, and best of all ships from Huawei themselves!

Xiaomi Redmi 2

The Xiaomi Redmi 2 is the phone for those of you who just need a compact device to keep you connected. The little Xiaomi might not be as powerful as rival devices but it is a comfy and dependable phone and ships with MIUI V6.

Oppo Find 7

oppo find 7 review

Even though I had an issue with my Oppo Find 7, I still enjoyed the phone and prefer it to the OnePlus One which is based on the same hardware. The Find 7 is the 2K QHD version of the phone with Snapdragon 801 chipset and 3GB RAM.

OnePlus One

oneplus one sandstone 64gb review

The OnePlus One is a firm favourite of many. Although it might not have the best camera performance in the world, it is hard to deny that as an overall package it is very hard to beat. Various sellers are offering both versions of the OPO for sale, just ensure you are getting the model that will work with your LTE networks.

Meizu MX4

meizu MX4 review

Meizu sell both their MX4 and MX4 Pro on Amazon, but it is the standard MX4 that we like the most. The Meizu MX4 boasts a powerful MT6595 processor, 2GB RAM, LTE and 20.7 mega-pixel rear camera. We also enjoy the ultra-thin bezels and aggressive curve to the rear making it one of the most comfortable phones to hold.

Elephone P6000

elephone p6000 benchmarks

On of the first to arrive on the market with a 64bit Mediatek processor, the Elephone P6000 is quite the bargain for anyone wanting a ton of power for not much money.

The Elephone P6000 boasts a 1.5Ghz processor, LTE, 2GB RAM and 13 mega-pixel camera. Lollipop is on the way, and there is an active community of Elephone fans building apps and hacks for the devices over on their forums.

JiaYu S3

jiayu s3 review

Another 64bit Mediatek smartphone, the JiaYu S3 is a true Mediatek flagship for 2015. The phone boasts 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel Sony sensor, and large 5.5-inch FHD display. The ROM is also rather nice too with tons of features and a similar ColorOS look to it.

Ulefone Be Pro

ulefone be pro review

Another 64bit Mediatek phone, the Ulefone Be Pro packs a MT6752 chipset, 2GB RAM, dual SIM, LTE and SD card expansion. The Be Pro comes with Android 4.4 Kitkat out of the box, but the Ulefone team are hard at work to release Lollipop for the phone very soon.

    I notice all the Amazon links are to the U.K. version of the site and some of the models mentioned are completely unavailable to North American readers. Disappointing. Makes this site slightly less useful for researching my next phone as I realize that some of the phones could be not usefulnot released for my area.

    @Gizchina:disqus,
    Wanted to ask you something about MX4’s camera if you know. As far as I know MX4’s camera doesn’t have any OIS… correct me if I’m wrong.. BUT the same sensor is used to f.e. Sony Xperia Z2/3 where it has OIS or at least something similar.
    Having OIS on a device is hardware or software related? Meaning is it possible in a future software update to have OIS on MX4’s camera? (if we assume that it doesn’t have atm and it’s software related)

    • Knowwhat
      February 19, 2015

      OIS is hardware related. There are a few “anti shake” software features, but OIS is built into the lens. Optical image stabilization really means “optical”…

      • Miko
        February 20, 2015

        Thanks for clearing it out. MX4 makes nice photos but if your hands are not so steady then you might need some tries before you get the desired result.
        I think ois is a really nice feature to have on mobile cameras.

    All links go to Amazon UK – useless for those living in N.America.
    Besides, prices are over inflated…for example, the Xiaomi 2S on the Amazon link is selling for 150 BP while the same phone sells for 119 BP on AliExpress. That’s a 26% markup!

    Or, the 64GB OnePlus One for 319 BP ($493 USD)… which can be bought in the US and Canada direct from OnePlus every Tuesday, without an invite, for just $363 USD including shipping!

    Don’t be a sucker by paying inflated prices for a Chinese phone!

    You’ll save yourself lot’s of money and be a better informed consumer by checking out prices and comparing specs before you buy.

    Here’s the best comparative shopping site I’ve found so far for Chinese phones:

    Hi guys. I have a Cubot
    phone at the moment, and I am not pleased with it at all. Still I do not
    discard another Chinese phone, but want it to be way better than this one. My
    main concerns are that the Cubot freezes and starts up again. Apps don’t work as
    they should, and sometimes go missing, and the GPS… let’s say that it does
    more often not find any satellites than it does. I am thinking about
    Honor 6 Dual SIM. Any experiences anyone? Hints and tips? Better phones in this price range? Thanks!
