Xiaomi, and more recently ZTE and OnePlus have hit the mobile market with a slap in the face. Low prices and ludicrously high-specifications are what these brands are concentrating on, but how do Chinese phone makers keep their prices so low?
My brother is a long time iPhone users, and although he still likes Apple products he had started to see he light and realised that (for phones) Android is the way to go. This weekend I helped my brother buy a new Android phone, this is what he bought!
ZTE may be relative newcomers on the smartphone scene but they have been absolutely killing it since their entry into the market in 2011. That trend has continued with its two newest devices to its boutique Nubia line of smart phones, the Z5S and Z5S Mini.
