HONG KONG -- August 28, 2013, a major B2C website offering Chinese cell phones for European
consumers, recently issued a report revealing new trends in China's cell phone

A New Force

As China surpassed the US to become the largest smart phone market in the
world, Chinese cell phone manufacturers are emerging as a new force whose
impacts even the dominating giants like Apple and Samsung are not to neglect.

While Apple and Samsung focus on expensive cell phones for consumers in
developed countries, Chinese manufacturers, including Huawei, Lenovo, ZTE,
Coolpad and Xiaomi, see opportunities in the emerging markets that have a
great potential in the future.

Low Prices

China's cell phones users are sensitive to prices because the operators do not
provide subsidies for most of the cell phones. While in European countries,
the widespread subsidies will cover the consumers' expenditure on cell phones.

Chinese users tend to change their cell phones more frequently than Westerners
do. The cycle in China is about 6 months while it is 2 years in developed
countries. Impetuous consumers indicate rapid changes in the manufacturers'
market shares and fluctuations in their profitability.

Going Abroad

Made-in-China cell phones are highly cost-effective due to a large pool of
cheap labor and low cost. Meanwhile, skilled professionals also abound, for
many international brands have their OEMs in China. As a result, China's
mobile phones have captured a great share of the global cell phone market in a
very short time with high quality and competitive prices.

In recent years, the cost-effective China mobile phones have not only taken up
a large share in the local market, but also entered the European market,
distributed via a large number of B2C websites, including which
owns independent warehouses to guarantee fast delivery.
