I agree with Yunko, you don't see ZTE phones as they branded by carriers...pretty smart actually, instead of spending millions trying to build a brand they have become low cost suppliers to those who needs to have brand recognition...if all phones are more or less the same why bother branding? Kris
I don't have that data. But I can ask around. Meanwhile, ZTE phones are often sold under various operators' brands.
One thing going for ZTE is they can leverage their tight relationship with carriers to whom they supply network infrastructure equipment. They've worked with many carriers throughout the world
So, ZTE, in the eyes of operators, isn't "nobody" or "no brand."
I havent seen a ZTE branded smartphone till now. I guess the sales could be because they are the OEM manufacturer of smartphones for a zillion other Asian brands. ie xyz branded ZTE phones.
Do you have data on how many of those phones were sold with ZTE brand label?
