Under the pressure of stability, the Russians changed their preferences towards brands when buying a mobile phone. More and more people in our country buy goods from Chinese companies, and it became so popular that captured the third of the smartphone market.
During the first two months of the current year the share of “cityfone” in Russia amounted to 33 per cent, as reported by the representatives of “Svyaznoy”, noting also that future expected growth of this indicator. In monetary terms smartphones from China brought the Russian networks 21 a percentage of total revenue. It should be clarified that we are talking about official sales, so in fact the share of mobile phones from China may be significantly higher, because many Russians do not want to overpay and order the devices directly from China. The most popular brand in the world of smartphones is Lenovo — for every 10 purchased cell phone is on the case the logo of this particular manufacturer. In second place is Apple, followed by ASUS, which is not about China — it is located in Taiwan.
The five leaders include Alcatel (the owners are originally from China) and HTC, and ASUS is based in Taiwan. The presence of the latter in the list of leaders is very doubtful, because its smartphones were never available, and each model has its competitors with more favorable price. Also causes suspicion in the absence of the company Huawei, which is also officially supplies its smartphones to Russia, and they are known for their high quality and reliability.
