There are a ton of smartphone manufacturers in China and it's really hard to differentiate and actually climb above the competition. OEMs like Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE, Meizu and a couple more companies definitely managed to do that, but what about the rest? Well, there are quite a few companies that are doing a really good job lately and are doing their best to get under the spotlight. Elephone is a good example, the company is planning to announce two new beastly flagships soon, one of which will allegedly sport dual boot (Android Lollipop + Windows 10).
