First of all, it must be said that there are some Chinese mobile phone manufacturers that have already sold in Spain for a long time, and that we are not going to mention them here, although they also have good quality phones, such as Asus, ZTE, Huawei or Honor. But we are not going to talk about these brands, but rather about those more unknown brands that you will find when you look for Chinese mobiles.
It is the most famous of all. It’s kind of like the Apple of China. At the moment they do not sell internationally, although it seems that they will soon start selling their smartphones. All their mobiles have a great quality / price ratio and it is difficult for one of their mobiles not to be surprised by how well they work with how cheap some are, or that for a relatively low amount of money you can get so much quality with the mid-range and high end.
It is almost the rival of Xiaomi. And it is that, at a quality level they are very similar, although the latter take much less time than Xiaomi. Their mobiles are of a high level, they have a great design, and last year they managed to make the Meizu MX4 considered the most powerful mobile of 2014. It has basic, mid-range and high-end smartphones. They have already officially arrived in Spain, although their mobiles are launched later here, so perhaps it is simpler and sometimes even cheaper to buy them from international distributors.
We began to reach the lesser-known brands, or perhaps those with which we are not sure that smartphones will be of such high quality. Elephone launches many mobiles every year, of different ranges too, and that makes it a bit difficult to know which ones are better and which are worse. Or if any will be very bad. However, if you choose Elephone mobiles with a price higher than 150 euros in the stores of international distributors, it is difficult for you to buy a bad mobile. Of course, while in Xiaomi and Meizu design is key, with the Elephone you may find that the design is somewhat worse, although they also have very high-level mobiles if you are going to spend more money.
Perhaps it is the least known brand in Spain of these six, but it is one of the best. We say this because they do not launch entry-level mobiles, but only those that they already consider of a good level. Their most basic mobile, the LeTV S1, is only slightly inferior to the best Meizu mobile launched so far, the Meizu MX5 (at least until they launch the Meizu PRO 5). In addition, they have some of the phones with the smallest bezels on the market. Design is key, and aluminum is the material used in their smartphones. It is to take them into account.
If there is something that characterizes Ulefone, it is that their phones do not have their own personality, because they are clearly inspired by the iPhone. Although it is true that most phones on the market are inspired by the design of the iPhone, Ulefone almost copied it. Your Ulefone Be Touch 2 is a high-quality mid-range mobile. The new Ulefone Paris will be of a somewhat lower level than this and also cheaper. A good design, inspired by that of the iPhone, and similar to the others in technical characteristics.
Also little known. Doogee mobiles resemble those of their rivals, although they stand out from the rest for trying to be different. For example, the Doogee F3 Pro has been launched with different types of wooden cases. Design is also key in its smartphones, although as in the case of Elephone, it has many different devices, from the basic range, for 100 euros or less, to the high-end.
