Huawei is one of the best smartphone maker today, no doubt they are thriving
Huawei are a good Android manufactor with a clear and winning strategy. But there are some new Chinese upcoming brands to. Just bought a Vernee Apollo Lite. Great build quality, and they also push out frequent updates to.
Another device are in the pipeline Vernee Mars. So just a tip to keep a eye on that brand (Vernee).
For Xiamoi I was little suprised that they went down so much. But been much "hype" about that brand. We will se how they going forward.

Because you can buy Oppo anywhere, but can you buy Xiaomi? Not like "anywhere", more like "at all"? Some of my friends said they would be interested, but they can't buy one, the process isn't simple and there's no warranty outside of China. Unlike Oppo and some others.
And Xiaomi prices went up significantly, which doesn't help sales.
AnonD-60230, 16 Aug 2016I sometimes feel Xiaomi is Killing themselves when a crappy product like Oppo is selling more ... moreSo true. Oppo has nothing to offer something even against Galaxy A-7 or Huawei P9 while Xiaomi Mi-5 is looking straight into eyes of Galaxy S-7 and that too with a much lesser price.
they are selling less because they started to lock bootloaders with updates..... they are getting what they deserve....
I will be embarrassed using these phones from a Chinese company! hahahaha Sorry! But that's the way, I like it! aha! aha!
Oppo and vivo are sister company so combined together, they are number one right now. Both are quite aggressive in marketing especially here in the Philippines .
I sometimes feel Xiaomi is Killing themselves when a crappy product like Oppo is selling more than them! Seriously.. how did it even happen?

Bro just bcoz Apple and some Chinese companies r not giving it,you can't say its a dump thing to hv a MSD slot.
Remember my words in Mi 6 they will provide it.

Some of those you mentioned are smart enough to rake in cash from their customers by limiting what a smartphone can do just when customers think the possibilities are endless
Tucking Fypo, 16 Aug 2016when potential customers wanted to buy xiaomi phones then they created fake hype by flash sale... moreExactly! I ended up buying the Huawei P9, because I couldn't get the Note 3 and I'm so glad that I have a Huawei now(and an iphone SE).
In Singapore it's hard to get their phones even though Xiaomi has a webpage here selling their products, all of their new phones are OUTOFSTOCK and this has been for months and months. Now what kind of business model is that when one can't even get one directly from Xiaomi's direct web store in Singapore? Less than a few years ago, one could click and buy one and have it in a day or two, but not now. (Sure, one can get one from a shady seller.) It's no wonder Xiaomi are loosing ground right on their own turf. There is something fundamentally screwed up when a company is unable to restock and it's points to a management problem. There is something deeply messed up with Xiaomi and if they don't fix it, they won't be around.

If you're serious company like:
Apple, Google Nexus, - or less serious but a challenger -, Oneplus, Xiaomi, Meizu - you don't add any SD card slot to your phone ;-)
