      lier Zi, other phones are expensive because they dont steal technology, wait it's not stealing it's open source in China LOL.
      Zi mentions Samsung and LG marketing budget which includes TV, fridge, washing machine, smartphones and many more stuff. Typical Chinese trick, lies with partial truth.
      Samsung makes it's own memory chips. And Samsung uses crappier memory chip than Apple, another lie.
      I couldn't finish this garbage lies, good bye lier Chinese. Hope your emperor paid you a lot for lying.

    I just ordered five different smartphones from Wish. I was curious as to how they’d fair. Especially since they were only $2 to $3 each. One is a rugged Vernee phone, A Huawei Mate 9, An Oukitel, and a Meiigoo S8. (I said 5 cause I accidentally ordered the Oukitel twice lol )

    The Chinese essentially stole the technology. They copy everything that others spent years of R&D on. The pay their workers pennies, they use poor quality materials.
    If you go to a Mercedes dealership, the car will be quite expensive. If you buy a fake Mercedes-Benz in an alley from a thief who is pushing a cheap copy, you get what you paid for.

      samsung actually makes their own ram and sells it to a bunch of other companies like NVIDIA, apple, radeon. and a bunch of others. they actually make the best rams. when u want to buy a video card make sure its got the samsung ram on it and not micron ram. also samsung makes the best ssd drives. cuz they got samsung ram in it.

      Because they are free and likes to party while the chinese are working hard like a slave and eventually take over the world. The americans will make themselves poor while the efficient chinese government will continue to takeover as the world's superpower. It's already clear just look at the Philippines many chinese who can't speak english or the native language and do business and they have military bases near our country.

    xIAOMI ADMITTED THAT IT LIVES WITH A 5% profit margin on phones to establish their own market share, they sell other products at a proper profit. they also don't spend as much on middle men and advertising.

  • vickimon
    vickimon 9 days ago +1

    They're not cheap, but they're correctly priced. If a phone costs $200 to manufacture a phone Chinese phones sell it at $350, which is a reasonable profit margin. Phones like iPhones and Samsungs may costs around $250 to build (including labor) but sells outright at retail for $800 or $1,000.... that's overpriced and as long as idiots keeps buying them. That it will be the standard.

      I own a small chain of high end specialty appliance sales and service shops, the appliances are all sold under Swedish, Swiss, German and Japanese brand names. The internal parts have the part number stamped on the part number of the brand name company. For example 41xxx40-01 stepper motor costs me $125 plus shipping and retails for $189. Last year I removed a non-functioning stepper motor and there was a paper label attached with the manufacturer name and their part number (the assembly line obviously failed to remove the label of the actual manufacturer). I looked up the manufacturer and discovered they sell the part for $2.50 each (minimum order 100). So I could buy 2 stepper motors from the brand name supplier or 100 identical parts from the actual manufacturer for the same price. I bought 100 and now charge less than the competition to replace the same part. A decade ago another item (a frequently used consumable) was costing me $4.35 and selling for $6,99, I began buying from the original manufacturer for just under 5 cents (minimum order 36,000) and selling them for $2.00 less than the competition.

    You know why they sell them so cheap? Because they're built with spyware. Your information is more valuable than the device. Especially in China if you're a citizen of China. Its some real Black Mirror type stuff. Hell, just look at their Sesame Credit System. That's some true dystopic shit.

    Let’s face it. Everything Made in the USA IS EXPENSIVE TO SELL TO OTHER COUNTRIES.
    That’s why we should produce them in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. These regions are 100 more beautiful than Hawai. After the US helped them get rid of the Communists, they should have helped them bring the economy back again.
    Instead we ended up with that mess at the border because the paratroopers the US trained ended up as corrupt politicians or head of gang member. Everything the US touches, dies.

    Trump’s Order asking Google to ban Huawei is applicable to the USA only, not to free sovereign countries. Google should not follow Trump’s Order in other countries or they will be infringing in their sovereignty. Latin America, Europe, Africa, Asia should fine Google with billions if they follow Trump’s Order. These countries must pass resolutions that foreign countries should follow the law of the land. Watch out for briberies. The world should not be held hostage to giant Corporations. This is a good opportunity to create another smart phone platform, one that is immune to hostage taking.

    Quick summary: Chinese phones are so cheap because they sell them at a loss to steal market share. These phones contain illegally obtained technology that wasn't purchased or licensed, so the loss to the Chinese companies isn't so great.

    Never buy a Chinese Android computer unless you are 100percent it is a licensed Google product. So it of people assume a Linux kernel is immune to computer virus but this only apply to old school of Linux as something like Android is designed to function like Windows and Android is integrated with Windows at this point. There is now many great ecodemy manufacturer for Android that have hardware that is quality above quality and overall profitable so I strongly recommed spending just a little bit more to get solid safe computing.

    Zi, you're obviously ignoring Huawei's market penetration period during which they were an obscure brand in "the west" that had unbelievably low prices.
