vino41, 02 Oct 2016Oppo phones are lemons, sellers are scammers.Oppos phones are actually decent unlike htc and Samsung.
Mailman, 02 Oct 2016It could also be that Chinese mobile carriers helping Chinese companies and giving special off... moreCarrier subsidies are not "new" and certainly not invented by chinesse carriers.More so,as this things works perfectly in the US...and guess who has the biggest benefit of them?!?
DaDaaam corect answer-Apple
So in a way chinesse manufacturers are at disadvantage,as they are not big and powerfull enough to impose its own "products" as they see fit.They can't offer the same aviability,service and most importantly 'phone exange' programs... as Apple could.Just imagine what would happen if they start offering this things on its own turf,as Apple do in United States?
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2016They most probably are,but I guess in total number of phones(together) with Honor.
Anyway P9 ... moreThe P series and Mate series are both flagships for Huawei.
Like how the S series and Note series are both flagships for Samsung.

huawei need 20 percent boost and they will become second largest smartphone vendor instead of apple
oppo & vivo are crap overpriced junks..
They are selling there phones with earth shattering advertisements. People think those are awesome devices than any other.
When come to cities and online markets , no one buying these craps.
91k, 01 Oct 2016What a joke! Oppo and poop able to sell that much .. May be someone is getting paid for this ... moreOppo/Vivo is selling these phone to rural area and less developed cities of China with heavy marketing effort (with misleading information), exploiting people's ignorance. Those sales are usually "offline", because someone smart enough to ask the Internet won't buy these crap.
Skib666, 01 Oct 2016Because it's a killer brand, like Xiaomi or One Plus. Most importantly, they get more premium ... moreThe only reason Chinese companies are able to sell their products at dirty cheap price is because they get subsidy from the CCP and they don't pay patents in China, also most Chinese companies steal other companies technologies, there's a report regarding that I would post a link but I'm using a phone so I suggest to just google it.
pika2000, 02 Oct 2016The "too expensive" thing doesn't jive considering the second phone on the list is an iPhone. ... moreiPhone is another story. But I see what you mean, that Samsung could not meet the market's demands. And you are right actually. OP3 has 6GB of RAM while the Note 7 still has 4 despite the rumors. Force touch screens, no need for FHD, compact powerhouses, these are all elements Samsung actually lacks in it's flagship catalog (although the A8 2016 has the S6's SoC and most of it's specs, with a SD slot but lack of 4K recording camera and FHD sAMOLED display). This is something I noticed too. If Samsung had a Galaxy S7 mini, it would have sold very well (4.7'' with the same SoC and camera but only FHD display) and a Note 7 Lite with FHD again. Note 7 Pro with 6GB of Ram and 128GB would also have been a good thing.
I agree that Samsung copies a lot. They copy on themselves (same design for A and J series as the SIII) and on the others (the Cx design is a huge copy, they copied Apple for the antenna design), which cannot allow them to make good sales. Soft optimisation is also to look forward, TouchWiz is still getting heavier as new features emerges, requiring always more powerful SoC to achieve decent performances, while Apple pushes more powerful SoC and better software optimisation.
If I had to choose between OPPO/Vivo and Samsung I would go for the former. I think Samsungs are overpriced, not original as they run the same Android as everybody else, they don't offer any good apps or services and their quality is average. The perception that Samsung is good is due to their massive ad campaign and due to their controversial, hate the iPhone approach. This is how something average and unoriginal has become in the eyes of many as good as the iPhone and the best among Androids.
jheddy 2, 02 Oct 2016What is oppo ??
Oppo is a Chinese brand of phones running a color os platform powered by Goog... moreOppo has the number one market share in China.
Oppo also has other brands, Vivo and OnePlus. Considering how many western reviewers are liking the OnePlus, Oppo has a thing going. Sure, they copied, but Samsung also copied. Oppo is pretty aggressive in Asia. One cannot dismiss them at this point.
Of course, whether their copying is sustainable or not is a different story. We already see Samsung in trouble since they are running out of stuff to copy, and when they have to innovate by themselves, we have exploding phones.
ProJames, 02 Oct 2016It is because the S7 is too expensive for the market. We are talking about China. You know, th... moreThe "too expensive" thing doesn't jive considering the second phone on the list is an iPhone.
Samsung is failing in China because they are just copycats. Well, guess what, the Chinese are better copiers than Samsung, so Samsung lost their "advantage." Without innovations, Samsung is being overrun by the other copiers in China, and the result shows.
What is oppo ??
Oppo is a Chinese brand of phones running a color os platform powered by Google's Android who wants to look like an iPhone .. nahh !!! It sucks they always copying iPhone in physical and virtual the new updated color os is like a iPhone recent and settings UI.. it Sucks !! Fet lost oppo , no originality , professional in copying iPhone that's why you gain sales and popularity
Qxdir, 01 Oct 2016Thought Huawei was number 1 in ChinaThey most probably are,but I guess in total number of phones(together) with Honor.
Anyway P9 is THE real flagship... tough its price is certainly constraint.

IPhone is iphone. People mostly buying iphone because it's brand and expensive brand. Of course iphone's looks good but technically not better than Chinese phones

The display is the best even better than iPhone which i consider the best until this beast... As far as f1 plus it's concerned it's a good phone but don't compare a pawn to a king!
