R&D(Research and Development)

Tech giants like Apple, Google and Samsung spend crazy amount of money on R&D which is not the case for Chinese phone manufacturers. You won’t find anything new or innovative apart from high specs in Chinese smartphones.

Produce Limited quantities:

The best selling method that works in China is creating the demand for product then sell it. It is mentality of people that if a certain product will run out of stock, they’re more likely to rush to buy. Xiaomi Mi4 is a China made phone and it was exhausted in just 37 seconds on Flipkart.
