Mobile phone makers are now coming under fire for selling devices that lack the necessary specifications to compete with Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android smartphones.
However, Huawei, Lenovo, and Xiaomi are doing their best to convince their customers that the devices they are selling can deliver a high-end experience at a price that rivals.
“The Xiaomi Mi 5 and the Huawei Mi 5 are a fantastic alternative to the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, respectively, but the Huawei 5 is the best smartphone available right now,” said Andy Rubin, the head of mobile at Google.
According to Bloomberg, the Xiaomi Mi5 is priced at $599 (€629), a little less than the iPhone 6 Plus, but not far behind the iPhone 7 Plus.
But when it comes to specs, the Mi 5 is missing some key features that make it a great alternative to its bigger brothers.
It has the latest Snapdragon 835 processor, which makes it the only smartphone on the market with a Snapdragon 821 processor.
Also missing is 3G, which Xiaomi announced in November.
In addition, the phone has a fingerprint scanner that Google has been working on for years, but Huawei has not made it available to the public.
The Xiaomi smartphone is one of the few in the world that does not support microSD cards.
And when it came to features, the phones specs were all that Xiaomi was selling: 4GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 4,000mAh battery, and a 3000mAh battery.
To make matters worse, Xiaomi’s Mi 5 costs about $700 (€730) in the US, which means that its $699 price tag is going to be the difference between you and a cheaper phone.
For a device that sells for less than $600, Xiaomi must be feeling a little let down.
Google’s Rubin has been in the tech business for years and has had a hand in the Nexus line of phones.
He is now trying to sell the smartphone market, and he knows that it is a niche market.
Rubin has recently come under fire from many tech-savvy smartphone buyers for his decisions.
After Xiaomi’s success in the smartphone industry, he decided to take a more traditional approach to marketing.
On Tuesday, the Chinese tech giant announced that it would be starting a marketing campaign that will take advantage of the smartphone’s niche appeal and be aimed at people who have never purchased a smartphone before.
What does this mean for the future of smartphones?
While there is a long way to go before phones become as ubiquitous as they once were, it is good to see Google and Xiaomi working together to improve the experience for consumers.
Hopefully this partnership will help consumers decide to buy a Xiaomi Mi or a Huawei Mi in the future.
