Conventional cellular or Chinese?

Iphone and Hiphone
Chinese phones is a hot topic discussed in relation to the similarity with the conventional cell and the question that hangs in the air is - Which is better? What are the advantages of each? Some device specific data and testimonials from users who use or have used both types of phones are compared in this article - standard and three copies, the Nokia N95 and N95 Mini, BlackBerry and BlackBarry, and finally, Hiphone and iPhone.

Chinese Mobile phones have become extremely popular among users because they have the same display as conventional phones and besides some additional applications such as analog TV, simultaneous entry of chips. For example, an iPhone and a Hiphone. The input Hiphone has two SIM cards, which an iPhone lacks. The disadvantage of a Chinese mobile phone, compared to an Apple, is that an iPhone has a bright screen and its powerful touchscreen has a higher sensitivity, unlike the Hiphone the screen, which does not respond immediately to touch. Besides, there is no access to the internet.

There are a lot of feedbacks from phone users regarding the choice between conventional and Chinese devices. Fraidemberg Rafael, 22, a logistics manager, has a Chinese cell phone. The reason for buying it was the cost of the unit, "I bought a similar cell at a lower price and I think that cell phones are all the same, because the most important thing is to make and receive calls. If you want something different, you'd better use a desktop", says Fraidemberg.

The official Wellington dos Santos, 24, takes a different side in this question. He prefers to pay more for a conventional phone rather than to buy a similar one, "I never had a cellphone made in China. I prefer to buy a conventional cell, such as a Nokia N95, than a Mini with low quality, many applications not working properly", says Wellington dos Santos. Lucas da Silva Ailton, 50, a manager of shopping says that a cell must be complete and have a warranty for defects, "It is complicated when there is no guarantee for a product, because it does not have special technical assistance. Also, some applications such as the Internet do not work in Chinese phones", says the manager.

Augusto Almeida, 19 years of an administrative support, has a similar cell and repents, "The Chinese phones have good cellular functions, but their hardware is too bad, the battery does not last long, and they are poorly translated. I bought it because of the low cost", he says.

Here are a few models and their differences below:

Conventional x Similar

However, similar as BlackBarry, Mini Hiphone N95 and just "copy" the display and firmware applications entries increasing chip and TV. But is not warranted, and Internet system or other applications that conventional. But in compensation the cost benefit, similar are absolutely cheaper.

For some people who don’t want to spend a lot of money for the conventional cellular it is always better to buy the Chinese version, of course because it is cheaper. However, I would like my BB to be produced in China, I still want to make sure that if something happens I have a 24 months warranty. In my opinion quality matters and not the way your phone looks like.

I don’t agree with Britta. I have the Chinese version of the mobile phone and you won’t even notice the difference. Same functions, same view, just you pay much less for it. Nice quality for a cheap price and I won’t be disappointed if it is broken or stolen, I will just buy another one.
