8 Best China-Brand Phones in S’pore That Have Made Apple / Samsung Kanchiong

We’ve all recently read how China smartphones are raking up their popularity levels here, with their phones being more affordable and able to deliver newer features at a faster rate too.

To top it all off, 1 out of every 5 smartphones in Singapore is a China brand, be it an Oppo, Huawei, Xiao Ming, Xiao Mi, Da Xiong or any other kind.

Here are 8 models that are rated the best here, so much so that the main guys in the smartphone ship, Apple and Samsung, might fear that their boat’s going to rock. Harder than it is rocking now already.

Yep, read on and be inspired. Change is coming, my friends!


Huawei Mate 9

While there is a pre-order going on for Huawei Mate 10, let’s not forget about the current favourite, Mate 9. It’s speedy with its Kirin 960 processor. Then there’s the Machine Learning algorithm, which serves to understand what you do to serve you better. Kinda like your personal butler on the phone.

Battery life can last for up to two days (Depending on your usage, of course!) and all it takes to fully charge the device is 20 solid minutes – that’ll cover you for an entire day!


Huawei P10 Plus Dual Sim

A slightly more expensive model (S$989 on Lazada) that comes with Leica Dual Camera 2.0 to give you 4K video shoots, and excellent photographs, even with limited lighting. It can accept data speeds of up to 600 Mbps too!


Oppo R11

Imagine not a single, but dual rear 20MP cameras as well as elevated bokeh effects for that perfect selfie or wefie you want. Picture clarity’s never looked crisper than this. It’s a pretty slim phone too, at a teensy 1.66mm as far as its width is concerned!

And oh, find the name familiar? You’ll have seen its name plastered everywhere while watching Joanna Dong singing in Sing! China.


Oppo R9S Plus

Now, this might not be one of the latest models, but it certainly comes with an affordable price tag of S$597 on Lazada. Dubbed the selfie expert, its hi-light camera makes photography and lighting easy for you with four features to choose from.

Its touch access is pretty commendable too! R9S Plus also comes with a 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM, making it a really powderful phone, ok?


Xiaomi Mi Mix 2

This baby runs on a Snapdragon 835 processor, and comes with 6 GB RAM and 256 GB of storage space. Battery is packed with 3400 mAH of juice and it runs alongside with an Octa-core CPU.

In fact, some called it the “iPhone 8 killer“. Judging from its specs, you can even call it an iPhone X killer. Or simply the Apple killer #justsaying


Xiaomi Redmi Note 4

A vastly more affordable model which runs on a Snapdragon 625 processor which also supports a microSD of up to 128GB. A 5.5 inch model which comes with HD resolution and a decent speed too, as it as a 3GB RAM and and 32GB ROM to back it up. Any Redmi Note user would be able to attest to its durability and affordable price tag.


Lenovo P2C72 Dual Sim

A basic smartphone of sorts, with 64GB storage, a 5.5 inch screen and 4G connectivity. It has a microSD memory card slot to expand its storage space. There’s 4GB RAM embedded in the phone for speed too.

The price? S$305.

For this price, you can only buy the casing of an iPhone X.


Lenovo P2

The final smartphone on the list, which comes with a Snapdragon 625 Octa-Ocre processor, a 5MP front camera and 13MP back camera, as well as a super AMOLED HD screen. Way much more affordable than the X models by iPhone and Samsung too, at a mere S$317.
