But people who go into stores to buy phones, and buy phones based off advertisements they see, aren't the kind of person to care about what Snapdragon or battery capacity is in a phone.
This is Oppo and Vivo's market. They cater to people who look at advertisements, and think that the phone is used by the celebrities in them or that the camera is "good" or think VOOC charging is cool. Whereas Xiaomi doesn't market their phones as much, so they lose out these people but gain back people looking for the fastest phone for the price.
Also, yeah, if Oppo could sell some phones online only and with better software, they'd totally be a good competitor to Xiaomi, (see Realme 1).

But I'd still say that brands like Oppo and Vivo sell expensive phones with bad hardware (except for cameras).
What they do is that they spend a lot of money on advertisement and also they sell their phones in offline market which adds up to the value of the phones because in the offline market, they company sells the phone to the distributer and they sell the phone to the retailer and then the retailer sells the phone to the consumer which adds up a lot of commission.
If Oppo and Vivo cut the commission and sell their phones in online market and also spend less on advertising, they can make good phone like Xiaomi.
Please share your thoughts on this reply.

But other people, especially in China, do not care about only speed. They want gorgeous design and bragging rights. This phone delivers.
You and others are totally different demographics.
Next month they will release new X25 model with no notch, replaced with sliding selfie camera on top frame
"Too much waste on the gadget world!"
It's like almost every week, new smartphone will be released...
And who's gonna buy them!?

Am seriously getting confused with these new Oppo and vivo phones, it's like am seeing the same phone every week with a more confusing name
Why not have other brand news that are interesting from China that have global bands like Umidigi One Pro. For $150 a phone that fallows the notch trend but has good dimensions for 5.9 inch screen and has 15W wireless charger and 18W fast charger.
Phone finder is full of idle companies.
If the in-display fingerprint scanner is what elevated the price that high, then they definitely should've discarded it.
Has a fingerprint scanner but no USB-C. lmao
Hmm, not to bad on specs, but micro USB and the fact that there are similar options at a lower price make this phone kinda.....filler. Seriously, the V11 is nearly the exact same thing
I'd still buy the POCO F1 for $300...
just because this phone has a in-display fingerprint scanner does not make it a good phone.
old fashioned disgusting micro usb, and no nfc, next please! and morover no or weak support of vivo phones in eu.. waiting for Oneplus 6T it will contains all that above and also jack and eu distribution/version
Goodlord, still no "USB TYPE C", useless, wont take it even for half its price.
too expensive in a flooded market already. i wonder how many people will buy. it could have been given 4000mAh at least.
