Such famous brands like Apple and Samsung, is used for the rear panel of expensive materials, and in China are content with plastic. The iPhone uses better components which are more expensive. Often Chinese manufacturers choose the Mediatek processors which are inferior in performance Ax Apple or Qualcomm, but much cheaper.
Chinese manufacturers do not attract professional designers, experts for testing and calculation of durability of their devices, so it often happens that each new model is similar to the previous one. Manufacturers from China are rarely, develop and implement revolutionary technology for smartphones. They are interested in creating from devices already on the market.
Also, the Chinese are cutting back on advertising and promotion of smartphones. Apple, Samsung, LG, HTC spend millions of dollars a year to tell customers about the benefits of their products. Television advertising, billboards, sponsorship and support from celebrities extremely expensive and add a significant proportion to the cost of the gadget.
