In fact,broken lcd is good business as well. Do you throw them away directly? Nope, you will loose your money. Some of people don’t know how to make money in this business, now I suggest you sell or refurbish them. For selling, you can just sell them to us with good prices if you just want to get rid of them. For refurbishing,we use cold glued(for iPhone) glass+frames and cold pressed way to do refurbishment. After this’s done, we will ship them back you. Mostly we ship them via DHL. They can be sold as refurbished new, the quality is very good and stable as well. We work on iPhone and Samsung broken lcd’s.

4. How to do business?

Perfect, now we have a rough idea about Chinese mobile phone and their the price, but it’s not enough. How can I do business with supplier of Chinses original brand smartphone? you may wonder? for most of the time we’re not strong enough to build relationship with brand company, their MOQ could be 500pcs per model, or even more than 1000pcs each time, so we have to work with distributor/wholesaler in the market.

Here comes the problems:

A.How to find a reliable distributor/wholesaler and get a good price?

B.How to deal with languages problem? and manual?

C.how about shipping?

D.how to avoid copies?

For A, there’s different grade of distribution network in China, without large order or relationship, none of us could deal with brand company, or supplier behind the market. Besides, price of smartphone is transparant and lower profit, and there’s so many copies, which makes it difficult to find a reliable supplier with good price. A better solution is to find a local partner that knows the market well and tell you truth about the markets.

For B, it is piece of cake, brand smartphone always comes with different kind of languagues, or we can root it and install your languages as well; the Manual or label could be Troublesome, we need to print(or pay for a printing factory) our own manual, or making a common English version, it’s not difficult to make it.

For C*D, most of local distributors/wholesaler don’t export, or not very expert in exporting; besides, they only focus on selling phone and couldn’t help your other business, sometimes you need to buy some accessories as well, which may be purchased from different supplier. And dealing with different suppliers would make it very complicated; besides, shipping fee would be quite a lot as all of your order are shipped seperately.

In this case, the two choice you have are, firstly, if your quantity is really large, you can find one supplier to deal with all for you exclusively; secondly, if not, you would need a local partner, or sourcing agent to provide all services you need for this business. And sourcing agent is generally cost less than trading company.

——————————————————-

5. In the end:

Smartphones are one of the hottest products nowadays, everything is about smartphone: intelligent homeware, APP, mobile network, shopping, SNS…… iPhone is definitely the leader brand, and Samsung of course, but they’re expensive; consumer would need different kind of products as well, powerful, nice design and cost less, thats how Chinese brand succeed and grow.

Let’s wait for the following success of them.

By the way, we’re souring agent in Huaqiangbei, Shenzhen, China, we provide 1-stop sourcing service for clients, if you need our help, pls do not hesitate to contact us.

 

Doing Business of Second-hand/Used/Refurbished iPhone/Samsung in Shenzhen, China

Speaking of second-hand/used/Refurbished iPhone/Samsung, here comes concerns about bad quality, it was truth several years ago, but right now it’s totally different. the LCD is original, Back cover is original, so does the battery and other small parts. how can you judge that Refurbished iPhone 4/4s/5/5c/5s is not good quality?

If you are looking for Chinese phones with Chinese brands such as Xiaomi, Meizu, LeTV as well as One Plus, original new, not refurbished, please refer to this website here http://www.shenzhenphones.com/, you can see prices updated on a regular basis.

Anyone who needs a price list, please go to ShenzhenPhones.com to subscribe to our price list and newsletter.

Is it possible to refurbish iPhone/Samsung and make it looks original and new? why so many businessmen are interested in it?

Pls allow me to introduce Huaqiangbei, Shenzhen.

It’s the biggest Electronics market in China, you can find everything related to Smartphones: buying a new iPhone 6/5s/5c/5/4s from whosale market, equiping with accessories such as iPhone case, data cable, powerbank, sound enchancer; when it was broken, just had it repaired here; if your broken LCD is quite a lot, you can sell them, or purchasing some spare parts to resell in your country, such as LCD, back cover, flex cable, front/back camera…

Let’s back to the story,

There’s many suppliers that, on the one hand, they worked with refurbishing factory, on the other hand, hiring a lot of worker to recycle second-hand/used iPhone/Samsung. After that, their trained employees will take apart: Glass, Digitizer, LCD, main board, back cover, just like taking apart a toy. Some recycled iPhone is broken, some get dusted, and some’s or got soaked and doesn’t work at all. It doesn’t matter, testing and evaluating will be carried out soon after that, If glass broken while LCD is not, they will take it out and put a new glass, which is only 1~1.5 USD…

Here’s a iPhone:

1x LCD assembly( LCD+Digitizer+glass+small parts)

1x main/mother board with flex cables

1x battery, front camera, back camera, home button.

1x Back cover assembly(with small parts)

You just need to put 4 of them together and a iPhone is done!

That’s what they refurbish a new iPhone in Huaqiangbei, Shenzhen, China, and Samsung is almost the same. But how is the price? you may wonder, can it be a good business?

You know, A new iPhone 6 cost 650~850USD in USA, 699~899USD in EU, 640~840USD in Japan, it is expensive, not everyone could afford it. However, buying a cheaper smartphone is not pleasant experience and less cool. A refurbished iPhone may cost just half the price while the quality could be satisfactory. That’s why second hand/used/refurbished iPhone has the market in many countries, Asia, Africa, even in USA and EU. Cheap is very important, as well as the quality.

If you got interested, pls leave a reply.

 

Why it’s good business to import Smartphone Spare Parts from Shenzhen(China) and resell in your country?

Let’s start with a client’s case:

One of our EU clients found that it’s expensive to buy cell phone(iPhone/Samsung) interior spart parts in EU, but less competition. As a businessman, he figured out the price gap between EU and China and found it would be potential business to import/sourcing from China and resell on Amazon/Ebay/Alibaba in Germany.

There comes the problem: How to purchase/buy from China? you know, cell phone spart parts/component is quite professional item, it takes a lot of time to start the business: study  the product, sourcing suppliers and make the purchase. Huaqiangbei electronics market is the biggest electronics market in China, where all kinds of mobilephone spart parts are available, such as LCD, glass panel, touch screen, frame(sometimes LCD, glass and touch screen are together), flex cable, camera, home button, backcover, motherboard, battery, charging connector, and so on.

However, the toughest problem comes: there’s so many kinds of spart part, and price keeps changing. As a beginner, it would be hugh risk to do normal trading since there’s always a MOQ from Chinese factory or Trading company, and if you got a lot of stock, it would depreciate as well…

But he is smart man to Google and solve everything. He found a local friend in Huaqiangbei electronics market, Shenzhen, China. Huaqiangbei is the largest electronics market in China, where all kinds of mobile phone accessory/component are supplied with wholesale price, all in stock, no MOQ, no leadtime, it’s possible to get your goods within 7days after payment. At which he told his friend to source the products, deal with all suppliers, shipping everything together that he ordered and keep him updated the market info and price.

Here’s the price gap between Retail in Germany, Retail in China and wholesale in Huaqiangbei Market, from which our eu client does the business and make large profit:

1.-iPhone5s LCD original:

Picture A—sells on Taobao.com(China), retail price is 57.36USD

Picture B—sells on Amazon.de(Germany), retail price is 93.69USD

Wholesale price in Huaqiangbei electronics market(Shenzhen, China) is just 33.15USD

So how to sourcing from Shenzhen and resell on Amazon/Ebay/Online/Retails shop in your country?

Firstly, there’s quite a price gap and good profit;

Secondly, efficiency is very important, you need a trustworthy partners who knows well about the market, could help to find supplier with good price and quality, could quote you within 1 day, sourcing within 2 or 3 days  and shipping to your country within 1 week So that you can quickly sell it on line or at your local shop; If there were anything quality problem, your partner could negotiate with them and provide solutions.

Thirdly, start with small purchasing. You can test the market step by step so as to tell which is more marketable and avoid any quality problem.

Finally, safety. There’s lot of scammers, as a foreigner, it’s very difficult for you to tell them, but your Chinese partner could tell them easily.

So How to find a trustworthy partner in China?

We could be your reliable friend. As 1-stop sourcing service company in Shenzhen, We could be your hands and eye to help you sourcing, interpreting and shipping all your goods.  If there were anything I can help, pls let me know, thanks.

Do you believe that you can get Original New iPhone 5s 64G or Samsung S5 for 200 USD in China?

Although many foreign friends know that products, which are made in China, usually come with low price, because China is the factory of the world.
The labor cost in China is low, and the quality of the products is getting better and better, things that are made in China usually impress people from all over the world because of good prices, but do you think you can get original and new products with foreign big brands, such as Apple, Samsung, for much lower prices too?

Many foreign companies have their products assembled in China, but China does not own the key technologies, the product are designed in their own country. What Chinese people get is the pay for their cheap labor force. In the meantime, the prices of the products may be even more expensive in China because China does not have the control over the cost of these products, these big companies decide how much they want to sell their product for in each country, and a lot of the key components and parts are actually imported to China, and the import tax is very high, when the products are assembled, the finished products are exported for tax reimbursement, so you can see that the same exact item can be cheaper overseas.

In other word, you can get the iPhone 5s 16G for about 4800 RMB(775 USD) in the market, and Samsung S5 about 5000 RMB(807 USD).
One foreign friend asked me that when I can offer the price of Xbox one for 115 USD which is at least 580 USD here, because he saw the website offered it for just 115 USD.

Do you believe it?

Some foreign friends might have the bad experience of being cheated when they buy some things from China. Some cheaters use very cheap prices for very the things that are supposed to be very good to attract you because there are a lot of competitors in China. When you pay for the items, you may receive for the first few orders, or maybe not, but in the following orders, you will never receive them as the suppliers claim you will get. They can ship you empty box, high copy products, refurbished products, even rocks or rubbish. You will find out that it is impossible to get refund, and finally you waste a lot of time and have to give up. That’s the way how the cheaters do business.

Tips:

1. If you find the price of the item very cheap which is claimed to be original and new, you need to find out whether the price is reasonable or not. Because cheap prices may come with low quality or fake item. You may need to know what the average price is for the same exact item in China, or in your country.

2. About the profits you can get from it. For example, if you can get iPhone 5s 64G with the price 189 USD in China, plus shipping and import tax, you will know how much it arrives in your country, then you will know how much you can earn from it? do you think you can easily make so much profit?  Why only you not some one else who can make so much profit? Do you think you can make money so easily by just typing a few words on Google or Alibaba at home, and sending a few emails?

3. If you are not sure if the supplier is reliable, it’d better that you choose Paypal to pay the invoice, Paypal protects buyers more than sellers.

China is famous for the products which are completely made in China. Chinese products impress you with its good price and better and better quality. So buying Chinese products is strongly recommended. Also Chinese local mobile phone brands become more and more popular all over the world, such as Xiaomi ,Huawei, Lenovo, Meizu, Coolpad, and so on. They are all cheap and the quality becomes better and better.

Now I do the business of Chinese cell phones, if you’re interested, you can leave message to me below.

Have you got Xiaomi Mi pad? Here is the testing when I got it!

If you are interested in Chinese cell phones, please visit my website to know more information about Chinese cell phones: http://shenzhenphones.com

Xiaomi Mi pad has the same characteristic as the other Xiaomi products, good quality, reasonable price, high cost performance. As a Chinese cell phone wholesaler, especially for Xiaomi cell phone, I would to give you the latest testing results of Mi pad.

Mi pad is the first tablet in the world which uses NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor.

The battery is 6700mAh. 800W rear camera and 500W front camera, enable you to catch the fantastic moment.

Now I will show you the testing results:

 

It has the 7.9 inch high resolution IPS screen, 326 ppi, 2048*1536.

The WLAN connection speed of Mi pad is very fast, it also supports 2.4G and 5G. I use the Xiaomi router to connect the Mi pad with 5G, the speed is very fast, and signal is stable. The ability of Mi pad  to receive signal is strong. Compared with Redmi note, Mi pad can receive 7 wife signal at the same position, but Redmi note can only receive 4 wifi signal.

Reading. The dimension of Mi pad is like a book. When you hold it , the dimension, the color, and the brightness are very similar with a paper book. Reading for a long time won’t make you uncomfortable.

204637c7q66mtddc74rtc6.jpg.thumb

Battery life. Mi pad uses the LG/ATL lithium ion polymer batter which is 6700mAh matched with 5V, 2A power adapter.

Testing from An Tu Tu Benchmark.

205341ipk8j4k844ia4e0f.jpg.thumb

In conclusion, the testing since I received the Mi pad satisfies me. The workmanship and hardware are very good. Though Mi pad has something to improve, such as the system perfection, camera optimizing, heat dissipation, longer battery life, more applications and so on. We hope there will be the better and better Xiaomi products coming to the market.

 

What role are you playing in the cell phone business?

We found a good post from Shenzhen Phones http://shenzhenphones.com/blog/2014/06/17/smart-phone-factory-manufacturer/

 

Smart phone “Factory” =”manufacturer”?

If you are looking for a smartphone factory, how would you like to search for it?

By factory, you might mean manufacturer, and you want to find the company who actually produce the smartphones, and you want to cut the middle men “trading companies” out of the way from the deal that you are going to have with the “factory”.

First of all, you need to know what role that you are playing in the smartphone business, in the smartphone business, I believe that there are many different roles.

1. Processor manufacturers. The popular processors manufacturers are mainly Apple, Samsung, Qualcomm,   nVIDIA, MTK and Spreadtrum, MTK is very popular in the smartphones that carry a Chinese brand or unknown brand, some companies like Xiaomi, Meizu, Oppo would also use MTK chipsets in their low end phones.

2. Solution companies. The solution companies usually give you BOM list and provide you technical support, usually they integrate the processors in the motherboard, and give you the solutions on how to build and assemble the phones, they also do some debugging on both software and hardware.

3. Industrial Design houses. This kind of companies focus on the housings of the cell phones and try to make it look better, usually they deal with the mold factories to tune the housings up. A good set of molds for a smart phone can be 20k to 40k USD, and it takes at least 2 months to produce and tune the molds, and it might waste 200 to 500 units of phones during the tuning stage (trial production)

4. Integrators. The integrators are someone who buy PCBA from solution companies, housings from Industrial design housings, as well as some other parts such as LCD/touchscreen, batteries, cameras, speakers, and ect. and outsource the assembly job to the factories.

5. Assembly houses. The assembly houses are usually considered factory, and you might think that they are the manufacturers. The assembly house are the facilities where a lot of different kinds of assembly jobs are done. There are usually a few production lines with labors who are arranged to put together all the parts of cell phones or any other electronics devices together, of course the Quality Control and Aging tests happen in the assembly houses, but they get instructions on how to do the testing from the guys who give them jobs. A standard size of an assembly house can put 3k to 10k units of cell phones, so they need to get jobs from a few big integrators so that they can keep the production running.

6. Trading companies and distributors. The integrators need to produce at least 3k units of phone at a time, and they need to reply on the trading companies and distributors to sell what they produce.

If you are going to build a cell phone on your brand, who are you going to contact first? Are all the paid gold members on Alibaba good to contact? What do you think they are when they need to pay so much money to Alibaba and hire people to answer people’s inquiries everyday, and they don’t even know you if you call them and mention your name, because they need to type your name and search to find out who you are, otherwise they can’t remember your name because they have too many inquiries to reply to.

 

MTK6589, Chinese Qual-core smart Phones from Shenzhen in early 2013

MTK has lauched its Qual-core CPU MTK6589, and it has become very popular and many manufacturers have integrate it in their new phones, What they do is to modify their molds for Samsung Galaxy S3 or any other popular phones, and they can easily adapt it in their current design of phones. MTK or its parters have already finished the polish on the software and built-in apps. The UI based on this new chipset look very friendly and lovely.

One of the cell phone company called Star has developped a new model called B94M.

Here is the specifications of B94M

There are other versions with MK6575 and Android 4.0, but the price is almost twice as much.

 

What is a Shanzhai (copy) Iphone?

I wouldn’t descripe it as a copy Iphone, counterfeit Iphone or fate Iphone, I would that this is a good customized Android cell phone with similiar look to Iphone, and you can customize more on the software environment yourself when you purchase one.

Shanzhai is a Chinese word, it literally means the village with its own goverment and defense, protecting themselves from the national military.

 

Some people believe that this copy Iphone 4S is actually better than the original one because:

1. The price is great, 10% as much as the original one.

2. It consumes less power, so you don’t need to charge your phone as often as you do with your original one.

3. You don’t need to cut your SIM card to a micro one, you can leave your SIM card the way it is, however, you can also buy a copy Iphone that needs you to cut the SIM card.

4. The phone is rooted, you are the super user of the phone, you can delete any default apps that you don’t like. Because it is based on Android, you can download any Android App to manage other apps. We recommend that you can download an app called Moborobo, you can install it on your PC or your phone, if you install on your PC, you can connect this copy Iphone through USB to your computer, then you can manage your apps and files.

5. It comes with Android, and Android is free, many people contribute free apps for Android.

 

Why do some people not want to buy a copy Iphone and have to buy the original one?

1. They have a lot of money and don’t know how to spend.

2. They get fooled by the advertisements everywhere.

3. The original Iphone does have better CPU performance and software environment, and it also has a better camera and a display. And a lot of people don’t need these features at all, and some of them don’t even know that they have all these features.

4. They are afraid that the quality of this kind of Shanzhai Phones is not consistant which can be true depends on which Shanzhai Phone you pick.

How do you delete the Chinese apps on a copy Iphone or a Chinese Android Phone?

I believe that most of these copy Iphone are rooted, contact me if your phone is not rooted and you want to know how to root your Android Phone.

If it is rooted, you can download some app that you can use to manage other apps, such as Moborobo,

You can either download a Windows version and install it on your PC, connect your phone to PC via a USB cable, or you can download a moborobo app to your phone and open it to manage other apps. We recommend that you download a Windows version, you can delete all the apps that you don’t want, all the videos, photos and files that you don’t, install the apps that you need from the Android world.
