For the first time in six years, the supposedly emerging mobile market in China is showing signs of slowing down as the year over year figures show it has contracted 4% in the first quarter of 2015,, according to a the Mobile Phone Tracker report from the IDC. Of course it isn't time yet to panic, especially for those who have invested in this market, but it just goes to show that they are nearing saturation point, and so the focus has to somehow change.

Why Hugo Barra doesn’t want a microSD card in Xiaomi flagship phones

For Android fans who don't know, the iPhone has always been without a microSD card slot so storage expansion was never an option. You have to decide if you want a 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB memory.

The pastel colored Xiaomi Mi 4i which we recently featured looks really cute and sweet. Unfortunately, the phone is initially exclusive in India.

LeTV looks to be a new player in high-end devices

It wasn’t too long ago when China-based brands like Xiaomi, OPPO, and OnePlus made their debut and sounded their challenge to the established order of smartphone manufacturers. These young Chinese companies were aggressive and were willing to sell devices that have the same or almost the same specs as the flagship and high-end devices Samsung, Apple, HTC or LG – and selling them at ridiculously low prices.

Xiaomi cracking down on fakes, losing millions of sales

Fake phones are nothing new especially in China where everything can be manufactured. From gadgets to designer bags to toys and even eggs, you can find them in the country.
