Since last year, several Chinese smartphone manufacturers have been trying to enter Western markets. Xiaomi is fast gaining recognition and is currently ranked as the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. It dethroned Huawei, another highly popular Chinese company, to gain the third spot.
Moreover, there are several third-party online retailers based in China such as Gear Best, Coolicool and Tiny Deal that are selling a wide range of low-priced smartphones along with free shipping service across the globe.
