Chinese Cell Phones are Coming to the USA

The cell phone market is getting even more crowded. The Chinese are coming to the US market this year despite the controversy that they "spy" on the user in some nefarious manner. The Chinese electronic giants, Huawei and ZTE, are the two eyeing the US market. In October, the US government issued a statement saying Huawei and ZTE cannot be trusted to be free of foreign state influence and thus pose a security threat to the United States and to our systems.

Regardless, Chinese cell phones for the US market are coming- the Ascend Mate has the world's largest display; at 6.1 inches, it surpasses even the popular Samsung Galaxy Note II with its 5.5-inch screen. The phone runs Android 4.1 with a custom Huawei user interface, and it's dust- and water-resistant. The Ascend D2, which has a 5-inch 1080p display, a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU, Android "Jelly Bean," a 13-megapixel rear camera. ZTE's Grand S is one of the thinnest smartphones at 6.9mm thick (the iPhone 5 is 7.6mm) and runs on the "Jelly Bean" version of Android and a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.

When cell phones first arrived, it was mostly American companies, then Nokia arrived, and the South Korean, Samsung, which initially had a bad reputation that is quite the opposite today. In fact, Samsung has sold over a million Galaxy's to date and it a real competitor for Apple, which is oddly made in China for less than $250! Still, the suspicion about Chinese cell phones or their parent companies may be just US governmental paranoia or not. I suppose the only way to know is to tear apart the Chinese phones for spyware.

In any case, the Chinese cell phones and cars are coming.

      Good hub on Chinese mobiles. In India, we have these mobiles and are available at very cheaper cost.

      Great article. Personally, I can't stand the thought of Huawei phones. Or ZTE - but especially Huawei. They are absolutely horrible and low end. I'd be quicker to pick up a dual sim/satellite Chinese phone than a Huawei. Good info and great post.

      Regional yes, which is not good enough, they plan to go national. We'll see if Americans will buy them.

      ZTE and Huawei have been in the US market for years, albeit, usually on the more regional carriers.
