Do you own or have you ever owned a Chinese smartphone? (poll results)

Do you own or have you ever owned a Chinese smartphone? (poll results)
On Tuesday, we wanted to know if the many, many cheap smartphones coming out of China have ever gotten you excited enough to reach for your wallet and pay for one, and now the results are in.

Over 1,600 of you cast their vote, and the majority, or 53.73% of all votes, said they've never owned a Chinese smartphone in their life. While this is a significant number, there's still almost half of the votes to account for, and they're split as follows: 30.87% of participants say they have a Chinese smartphone either in their pocket or nearby, while 15.4% no longer do, but used to.

All told, considering how difficult (relatively) it is to get your hands on such a device — they don't sell them in stores after all — it's telling that nearly a third of the folk who decided to participate indicate they already own one. With Chinese makers constantly improving, it'll be interesting to see if this split will differ significantly going forward.

Apple would have been a dead piece sh#t, if they didn't took the manufacturing support from China. Even the Hollywood admits that Chinese have the efficiency to do anything( hope you have seen the movie 2012)

Always been concerned with how safey private information is on these devices. Don't get me wrong, they're great looking phones, but how safe and secure is my personal information.

You can't tell a person to "begone" on the internet. How do we "begone" on the internet, our comment stays here forever unless PA deletes the article itself which includes the comments as well. And we don't stay on one article 24/7 too. For example, after replying to a retard like you, we'll just leave the page which counts as "begone". TOP KEK The Daily Blah Random question: What do you tell to an ignorant retard know-it-all like the Uncle Sam above me? Answer: You know it all? Not at all. Because you can't use a word correctly by telling someone to "begone" on the internet which shows that you're a betrayal to your image yourself and your English skills.

What kind of POLL is this??? Are there any Korean - made phones out there? How about made in Japan? LOL Well kidding aside, buying a Chinese product is a way of helping them strengthen their military, just look at what their doin in South China Sea right now
