none of them really are unique or have powerful specs or great apps for that matter so why are they considered good? there are closer matches back here in the usa

Totally different marketplace, I am not sure that any of them would sell as well in the US. But China is now the biggest smartphone market, and these phones (some of which do spec out pretty nicely) are selling there, and selling really, really well. Why? An analysis of Chinese buying habits vs. US buying habits? I can't give you that, and would not presume to guess.

A bit of my research hinted at price point, though; I read that a new iPhone can cost two-months salary of the average Chinese consumer, where as some of these models can be had for a fraction of that.
