Xiaomi, Meizu and Oppo’s Attempts At The Premium Budget Smartphone

The mobile phone market is a fast changing one, it was barely 10 years ago that Nokia released its 8310, one of the smallest mobile phones ever mass produced. Oh how things have changed since then.

Back when Nokia, Siemens and Ericsson were dominant manufacturers it would have been hard to imagine things as they are today. But as technology improved and consumers started demanding more from their phones, those old timers struggled to keep up and so the market was opened for someone else to take the helm.

Since then Apple’s iPhone has taken the world by storm, Taiwan’s Acer, ASUS and more recently Gigabyte have joined the market, Sony bought the rights to the Sony Ericsson brand, Google bought out Motorola Mobility, South Korea’s Samsung has risen to become one of the biggest mobile phone manufacturers in the world and LG are soon to be propelled into the limelight too when the Google / LG Nexus is released.
