Here are 6 Smartphone companies that have set a benchmark for others.

Xiaomi, who launched its first phone in 2011, expanded its roots beyond China into India and several other countries of the Southeast Asia, making it a colossal regional threat to companies such as Samsung, HTC, Huawei, LG, among many others.
OnePlus is China’s newly introduced big Smartphone-maker, entered the market in 2013. Influenced by Xiaomi, it sells its handsets only online, and comparatively has a strong hardware at a delightful low price. Unlike Xiaomi, OnePlus is going global from day one itself.
Oppo gave birth to OnePlus, but the parent firm is not doing that well, but OnePlus in making headlines internationally. Still, it is trying hard to survive in the international market.
Oppo is currently aiming to target the international Smartphone market as a part of its aim of going global.
Indian company Micromax is not upholding any fight with Xiaomi. Micromax in itself is gradually improving the quality of its hardware as well as the smoothness of its UI. It has also joined hands with Google for making a cheap Android Smartphone and has collaborated with CyanogenMod and created ‘hipper Yu’ with only online sales.
Karbonn is currently regulating itself up for the monumental battle in future. It followed Micromax in constructing an Android phone. Karbonn is a comparatively smaller than Micromax, but both are strongly growing in line with India’s big shift to Smartphone.
