Several Chinese phone makers have been cited among the top brands that made it big in terms of smartphone sales in 2016.
The Counterpoint Technology Market Research, a consulting company, revealed that the three percent growth recorded in the industry last year, particularly in global smartphone shipments, could be mainly attributed to four Chinese manufacturers - Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, and ZTE (including Nubia). Records showed that these brands were able to sell more than 365 million units all over the world during the said period.

The company further noted that two of these Chinese mobile phone makers have been considered as the "fastest-growing brands."
"Among the best shipments performers, Oppo and Vivo were the fastest growing brands as the brick and mortar stores for both the brands had seen rapidly established from tier-one to tier-four cities across the country," the research firm said.
ZTE (including Nubia) was at 6th place, recording 61.9 million of shipped units; Vivo at no. 5, with 71.7 million units; Oppo at the fourth spot, with 92.5 million units; and Huawei at no. 3, with 139 million units.
Meanwhile, the same survey result disclosed that in the list of top brands in international smartphone shipments, Alcatel, which shipped 34.1 million units, ranked 10th; Lenovo (including Motorola) was at the ninth place with 50.7 million units sold; LG at eighth spot with 55.1 million; Xiaomi at seventh place with 61 million; Apple at second place, with 215.2 million sold units; and Samsung at no. 1, with 310.3 million shipped smartphones.
In the meantime, Bloomberg reported that amid the sustained growth of these Chinese mobile phone makers, Apple Inc.'s iPhone 7 reportedly "failed to make as big a splash," especially that the American tech giant showed a decline in sales in 2016.
