China second tier smartphone makers pushing out decent devices

Ulefpne_MainChina’s top smartphone companies challenged Samsung and Apple with surging sales and revenue in 2014, vowing to scramble for a larger share in a global turf war with the top two makers.

Over the past few weeks, even months however, China second tier smartphone makers have been making inroads into selling their devices to the rest of the world. Cheap and nasty, which was people’s perception a couple of years ago to a few makers now bringing very decent well built smartphones with very good specifications.

Two of the specs that seems to be part of the norm is dual-sims with an SD slot. Many of them use 64 bit Mediatek processors which gives most of them a bit of an boost in power.
