Final Words

We choose representatives mobile from all manufacturers in the first half of 2015. It is easy to find that several trends: Criteria for hardware configuration is no longer way to distinguish between phones; Products of industrial design more favored by consumers; The content of the system service is to distinguish the ROM watershed; With a “talents” killer will function for the product to add points. Up to the second half of 2015, it is not hard to imagine in hunting new iPhone as the starting point of trade war is about to be fired. Drama may have only just begun.- Fastcardtech.com
