    If you want the latest new news about the android devices from China you can give a try to this website http://www.gizchina.com/

    Here are some examples of what you can find in China apart from the Xiaomi smartphones:

    Just don't waste your money. The software builds almost always such and forget about software updates.

    The pictures do not look like from China. I see some Japanese and some Korean text.

    Can you really? Considering that most Apple products and big-name Android phones are made in China?

    Not the same. For Apple products they just assembled. Clearly big differences between designed in China with knock off OS and hardware vs designed by Apple. Obviously Chinese are very good at assembling delicate electronic parts but they can't make anything from scratch. They can barely make automobiles.

    Or aircraft, or ships, or much of anything advanced without using western intellectual property as a blueprint.

    I'm sure they can make a phone that's just as good as any high-end Android phone out there considering they can do the internals for an iPhone.

    The difference is that Apple, Samsung, LG etc. have a good name to lose. Whereas no name products have no name.

    I don't know the cost of developing an iPhone 4, or an S3. But I doubt the no-name companies will even invest 1% of that. Once you try a no-namer yourself you can feel the difference within a few Seconds.

    4000 isn't very impressive for a tablet. My nexus 7 at stock clock rate blows that away.

    I'm sure most of them are crap, but I'm just saying that China is certainly capable of making a product worth buying, especially for their prices.

    if you look at the Oppo phone characteristics, they are quite similar with most of the high end android phones available on the market

    Sure, China has a few of their own brands that can be considered as 'better' then the rest. A few that spring to my mind: ZTE, Huawei, Lenovo...

    Few years ago Samsung devices, which was goldstar, weren't considered as quality products and today it's one of the leading brand on the market.
    For example, look at the Xiaomi -> http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1423979 , it's worth to give it a try imho :D

    Oppo CEO says quad-core Find 5 will feature a 1080p, 441ppi display, forgets to wink at HTC
    http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/15/oppo-find-5-1080p-441ppi-quad-core/

    Not sure how this slipped under our radar, but recently Oppo Mobile CEO Chen Mingyong teased that his upcoming flagship phone, the Find 5, will again feature a non-removable but "certainly big enough" battery (for the sake of anti-counterfeiting and, consequently, safety) as well as a 1080p, 441ppi display. That's right, 441ppi! We're finally getting a phone with a display that's impossibly sharper than the 326ppi on the latest iPhones (up to 4-inch, 1,136 x 640), the 331ppi on the Nokia Lumia 920 (4.5-inch, 1,280 x 768) or even the 342ppi on the Sony Xperia acro S and the Xiaomi Phone 2 (4.3-inch, 1,280 x 720).
    Assuming Chen's talking about a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, a quick calculation based on these two numbers would give us a 5-inch screen size, which matches what LG Display announced back in May. Taking into account that a reliable source of ours got to see HTC's 5-inch 6435LVW phablet recently, this would make the Find 5 unofficially the second device to receive the same full HD panel. Still, there's a significant difference inside these two phones: Chen had previously mentioned that the Find 5 will be joining the quad-core APQ8064 party, while the HTC device appears to sport the dual-core, LTE-enabled MSM8960. Speaking of which, the same source informed us that much like the Flyer, HTC's 6435LVW will also feature N-trig stylus technology. Will Oppo follow in the same footsteps? And will it bring back the slide-out keyboard à la Find X903 (pictured above)? Go on, Mr. Chen, tell us more.

    They do good fireworks and choreographed dancing, seriously though right now they are copying everything and making it all badly in huge massive quantities, their car industry is making an extraordinary quantity of cars.

    One day though they will rule the world!
