See 5 reasons why Chinese Phones are so cheap

Back in the days when Chinese phones first came into Nigeria newly, all we could reckon with Chinese phones were fake products because we tend to believe Chinese products are made with inferior materials. That time, Nokia phones was majorly the most accepted products in Nigeria, then Chinese came out cloning the Nokia phones most especially the popular Nokia 1280 “Nokia Touch Light”, but what was convincing then was the cheap price of these Chinese products.
Reasons why Chinese phones are cheap
Today, Chinese phones are taking the world with its low price and high specs. If you use a Chinese phone you will wonder how well they work with a very fast speed at a cheap rate compared to other manufacturers like Samsung, HTC and Apple etc. Do you think Chinese Manufacturers are giving these phones for charity at such a low rate? Here I will discuss 5 major reasons why Chinese phones are so cheap.


1. Cheap Labour force: one of the most common reason why Chinese phones are cheaper is because of easy availability of labourers at low cost. According to Carlos Capistran of Financial Times, China has the second lowest labour costs in the world after Mexico and this is the main reason why a lot of manufacturers build products there.

2. Cheap Marketing Strategy: brands like Oneplus and Xiaomi spends very less on marketing when compared to established phone brands. You won’t find their official stores and service centers rather they sell their smartphones online.
Cheap Marketing Strategy
Chinese phones company know how to make use of social network marketing in the Internet. We cannot deny that Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Weibo, etc. are the most popular social networks that has a large number of followers. As a result, the information about the smartphones can be spread widely if they advertise their products here. Meanwhile, some famous brands such as Samsung, Sony or Apple have to spend million dollars on TV advertising, sponsorship, or hiring celebrities to promote their products.

3. R&D (Research and Development): Tech giants like Apple, Google and Samsung spends 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.

4. High-tech but Revolutionary: one main factor is that Chinese manufacturers don’t do packing of phones with greatest and very latest hardware. They are more focused on balancing the balancing price with performance. If you notice a website selling Chinese phones then you will see smartphones with reasonably high-end specs, but cost a lot less than a Samsung Galaxy S7. Samsung basically uses high quality parts are quite expensive in the market.

A lot of Chinese manufacturers use Mediatek processor, these processors are not upto mark as samsung’s Exynos units and are very cheap in price. Cherry on the cake is that Mediatek is a Chinese company so local distributors get all products at very less price.

Chinese manufacturers done don’t use the latest DDR4 RAM and instead use DDR3 modules. Chinese phones have Japanese or Korean display which is very cheap and of low quality as compared to AMOLED or IPS panels.

5. Limited quantities technique: the best sale method that works in china is creating the demand for product. It is mentality of people that if a certain product will run of sale, 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.

People used to think that Chinese phones are low on quality but that perception is dead. It is true that China phones are not made of high tech quality but they are also not made of poor quality material.
