The Chinese market is a giant capable of bringing any company out of business. Their more than 2 billion users are a tremendously succulent goal for any company , whatever the market is. And if we talk about mobiles, where everyone has at least one, the most normal thing is that the companies in the sector launch themselves to conquer it with all their weapons.
The company CounterPoint has prepared a report detailing what they are the 10 most visited terminals of the Chinese market . And before you see the graph, we already warn you that you will not see any Oppo or Samsung terminal among the best .
If you walk the streets of any big Chinese city you will be surprised to see that most citizens use a iPhone 8 Plus . This model only reaches a 5.6% market share . If we add the other two terminals of Apple-iPhone X and iPhone 8, third and fourth, respectively-the percentage of cake that takes the signature of the apple is one 13.5%, taking into account only their latest models.
The top-5 of the classification is completed by two devices Xiaomi: theand the, second and fifth respectively. In this case, we talk about two types of terminals very different from those sold by the signature of the bitten apple , which leads us to think that the Chinese citizen is very extremist when it comes to choosing a budget for his phone: either too much or too little.
They also stand out 3 smartphones honorary , all quite in line with Xiaomi devices: economic and without belonging to the highest ranges. Close the classification, a more expensive device with better features than those mentioned above.
Finally, it is especially striking that companies like Samsung, LG, Sony or Huawei do not even appear by this ranking , even more so considering that they are companies whose headquarters are in that same continent. Neither are Google nor its Pixel, something that is understandable if we take into account that most of the services of the search engine company are blocked by the government of this country.
What do you think about this ranking? Is it what you expected?
