HTC ousted by Xiaomi in Top 10 global smartphone shipments ranking
Then again, it's debatable how global are Chinese companies in reality. Most of them make the bulk of their sales in the vast market of their homeland, with limited exports to outside markets. However, while Xiaomi ships some 97% of its products in China and looks forward to expanding globally, Huawei exports a respectable 45% of smartphones outside China.

LOl , companies like Xiaomi Huawei ZTE ..etc won't sell without the 1 billion people in china...

But that's exactly the market they are going after :P With over 1 billion population China and other nearby Asian countries, that's a huge market to try to capture for a small company.

I don't know about that. Xiaomi's skin of Android is outstanding and has global versions that are updated regularly (some weekly). A lot of people would buy a phone from Xiaomi if they'd export them.

If HTC didn't add that 4mp camera on M8 I would totally switch from my note 3 to m8 but I'm not giving up on HTC and I hope that next year we will see a flagship that has everything you need.

Don't worry next year you will see a 2 ultrapixel camera with 4 micrometer pixels and an 8 megapixel front facing camera

There is a lot more wrong with the M8 besides the camera.

Wasted screen space makes my top list of problems with that phone. Just look at how much is wasted by the HTC logo spot.

so you wanna downgrade ur phone. intersting....

Downgrade? The device is beautiful plus since my previous devices where a galaxy nexus and a nexus 4 , I think that sense 6 is much better than touchwizz even if I removed bloatware,disabled DVFS and switched to nova launcher on my Note 3. I moved from nexus to Note because I needed sd card support and a better camera but I'm not happy at all with touchwizz .

Chinese phone like hwawei, lenovo, xiaomi, etc are cheap and quality wise ain't that bad and has an advantage in their own country. Htc phones are too expensive just like sony.

Cooooolpad is eighth...nice...I guess...

These Chinese companies need to make more phones compatible with American networks. Meanwhile, Americans love overpaying for their iPhone, Samsung's, LGs and HTCs...

Haven't used the other Chinese brands....just the xiaomi mi3 ....and it's awesome.... Waiting for the miui 6 update....and seriously its better to buy a xiaomi phone with same specs as of an HTC at half the price + weekly updates
