A mobile for each user, Nokia dixit

With so much variety, users have more choice and , as mentioned, therein lies much of the success of Huawei. However, while causes such as Huawei terminals P9 Lite lose appeal in the shadow of leading-edge options as mentioned Honor 8 or more economical models like the 5X. It is almost as if the brand itself competition itself was made, but not competition when sales remain at home.

it is almost as if the brand itself competition itself was made, but not competition when sales remain at home

This strategy is not new, Nokia and started in the pre-smartphones was betting on an almost saturated, with a clear philosophy varied catalog: each user could find the perfect mobile to their needs without having to go to the competition . Whether you have similar models, the goal is to catch the consumer.

Samsung, the current market leader, is also committed to this philosophy. If you look at their catalog there are plenty of beaches ranging from the simplest phones to top that can cost more than 800 euros as the edge or S7 Note 7.

few users are willing to pay more than 500 euros or 600 for a phone and brands that ignore this done (anyone HTC said?) are condemned to the last positions of the top

However, despite having some of the leading panorama terminals, offer Samsung in the lower ranges is huge, and is where sales are concentrated. Few users are willing to pay more than 500 euros or 600 for a phone and brands that ignore this fact (anyone HTC said?) are condemned to the last positions of the top.

Huawei, instead, he has understood this strategy perfectly and have demonstrated that it is the way to go. You can blame a terminal as the P9 Lite, which bears the name of its top end, not the undisputed king of its mid-range, but if not take double camera as shown in the Honor 8 continues blunting with a more attractive price, especially now that takes time on the market and has dropped even more (cost 329 euros at launch).

despite having an offer full very, Huawei still has aspects that improve and one of the weaknesses is the software layer . The company remains committed so intrusive that interface without application drawer that both exasperates lovers experience ‘stock Android’, but, make no mistake, not a serious problem for the ordinary user problem.

However, if they continue on this path, and it seems that will be diverted, Huawei has them all along for overtake Apple in the near future and who knows if also Samsung in a years
