With some brilliant new flagship phones being launched, some of the most powerful phones have shed prices faster than they would otherwise have, making them very good buys.
I am using xda-developers now since more than 10 years. Got thousands of answers for bricked XDA`s and other smartphones in the beginning. I own a GSM technology company so I am always getting in touch with the newest and best devices. I were looking for powerful smartphones, but tiny please, that it will fit in my hands and pocket since the first day of the modern smartphone.
Xiaomi is no stranger to selling massive numbers of phones in a short span of time, and during a sale for Single’s Day (the holiday opposite Valentine’s Day) they moved about 220,000 phones in three minutes.
I find it really upsetting that all of these new phones like the galaxy s 3 and the optimus G still continue to go with a menu key, when clearly the android 4.0+ software was designed to get rid of it. As cool as these phones are, it just makes me feel like they're overcharged 2.3 devices instead of true next gen android phones.
I keep seeing reviews for these sweet ZTE, lenovo, or xiaomi phones that are just priced fantastic, but only available in China or on ebay with a 200% markup.
Anybody have any legit sources to get these phones at the prices they're available overseas?
Believe it or not, Android smartphones are still continuing to gobble up more market share. According to IDC, Android smartphones accounted for a ridiculous 81% of all phones shipped in Q3 (a good chunk of that was likely Samsung, too). All in all, Android shipments grew 51.3% year-over-year, and the smartphone market overall grew about 40% year-over-year.
