Xiaomi Mi5 tops the charts as the most popular smartphone in China
A recent survey conducted in China reveals that the Xiaomi Mi 5 is the most popular smartphone at the moment, in the country. The handset offers just about everything you'd expect from a 2016 flagship phone. It is powered by the Snapdragon 820 chipset, includes 3GB/4GB of RAM, a fingerprint scanner, and a rear camera with OIS.

Xiaomi also produces the second most popular handset in China, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. The manufacturer's 6.4-inch Xiaomi Mi Max phablet is also listed in the top ten. Most of the phones on the list are manufactured by brands well known in China, but might not be known at all by the average U.S. consumer. Being a PhoneArena reader, you might be familiar with Meizu and Oppo, but your neighbor probably has never heard of them. One name that the vast majority of Americans do know is Samsung, and the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge was fifth in the survey.

Keep in mind that this is a dynamic list and the top ten phones currently selected by consumers in China will quite possibly be vastly different in a matter of weeks. Don't be surprised to see the OnePlus 3 appear in the top ten shortly. China is the world's largest smartphone market and is home to the largest carrier (China Mobile) on the planet.
