Anonymous, 28 Aug 2018Huawei has the best potential to be number 1. They make flags... moreThey dont do their own processors. They buy the stocks from ARM and call them Kirin the same way Qualcomm call their own Snapdragons.

Its just to save some money but is basically the same to just buy a QC SoC.

Huawei has the best potential to be number 1.

They make flagships just as good as apple and samsung.

They make their own processors and have phones for every orice point.. they are also innovating and adding lots of hardware for a reasonable price.

The Huawei Mate 20 will just be the icing on the cake for Huawei

Most fun is when smartphone users defend a smartphone brand and defend who is making most money, omg im getting grey, same users get blocked for money... many more money then a smartphone ever could be worth, its a tragedy a firm/firms can makes people blind as zombies.
I really feel for the people and their blindness :-/
Support u family and friends, but firms cmon :-D

Anonymous, 28 Aug 2018Just FYI Huawei got the second spot this time. How much more if ... moreIf Huawei had a proper presence in the US, they would be number 1 by 2019

The Chinese phone makers are making an all-out attack against Apple. I will bet that in kess than 3 years, Xiaomi will be no3.

Also, Huawei and Samsung and both on a rave to make some Super Premium smartphones. If their concepts are successful, Apple will start making more lower end smartphones (it already did it with the SE and the iPhone 8 line-up).

Also, once Huawei enter the US Makers, iPhone is gonna get hit big time.

Mailman, 28 Aug 2018Have you even seen Apple amuall sales reports? I did say it's just a thought. But it is not impossible. Big giants have sunk, because nothing stays constant. Other's seem to predict the same too.

It is impossible to compete with Chinese companies when we are talking about prices, in any industry.

Well done Huawei. Apple's product have a higher average price though ... they don't even have entry level phones.

Good to see Xiaomi and Huawei rising
