The main feature that distinguishes China mobile phones is a significantly lower price than comparable smartphones, which might cost in Europe or North America double the price. The inexpensive entry-level smartphones have all basic functions that a cell phone need to have today. For less than 100 Euros you can get a phone with 4G LTE support and dual SIM card slot, usually powered by a quad-core processor. With up to 3GB RAM, the low-cost phones are perfectly adequate for everyday use and even offer features such as unlocking via face detection or have a dual camera built-in to take photos with depth of field.
Especially in the field of low-budget China mobile phones there are a lot of manufacturers like Cubot, Blackview, Ulefone, Doogee and Oukitel who have made a name for themselves with cheap smartphones in the last few years. The phones are handy with 5.5-inch screen size or bigger, come with the latest Android OS and are equal to mid-range devices, for example, with trendy aspect ratio of 18:9 or 19:9. Thanks to the less demanding hardware, you can also look forward to an improved battery life.
