Content: WUHAN  Air Jordan 1 High OG Mens Shoes  , Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- Police caught six tomb raiders who learned fengshui and used it to locate and loot tombs in the central Chinese provinces of Hubei and Hunan, authorities said Friday. The "master tomb raider", identified only as Ye, was able to look at a site and determine the best place to dig by applying fengshui, a traditional Chinese study of geomantic omens used to find auspicious locations for buildings and cemeteries. Ye, 44  Air Jordan 1 High OG Mens  , was once sentenced to 10 years in prison for theft and robbery. He learned knowledge of fengshui in prison, where one of the inmates told him raiding tombs was profitable. After he was released from prison he purchased tools online, such as a Luoyang shovel, and organized a tomb-raiding group. The police investigation started in May when they received information that people had raided a Chu State tomb from China's Warring States Period (475 to 221 B.C.). The police then targeted a six-man raiding group. By September, the suspects were caught by police. According to Wuhan police, they seized and retrieved six cultural relics  Cheap Jordan 1 High OG Mens  , including a bronze mirror with a diameter of 50 centimeters, the largest mirror ever unearthed in the city. The police said that the tomb raiders had looted three tombs in Hubei, but did not disclose how many tombs they had raided in neighboring Hunan, with the investigation ongoing. Chinese tomb raiders can make good money, as wealthy people in China used to be buried with treasure such as gold, silverware and jade in the hope of enjoying an affluent afterlife.

Industry experts say these cities - there are more than 600 of them and some are bigger than many European capitals - are the next smartphone battlefield as China's major cities are saturated. International brands such as Apple (AAPL.O) and Samsung Electronics (005930.KS) have mostly not yet reached this part of the market - which accounts for more than 56 percent of China's overall consumption, according to Beijing All China Marketing Research. In an economy growing at its slowest pace in a quarter of a century, buyers in these smaller cities - with populations of up to 3 million - tend towards cheaper phones  Jordan 1 High OG Mens For Sale  , which is good news for Guangzhou-based OPPO and Vivo, as well as Meizu Technology Co, an affiliate of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (BABA.N). "OPPO and Vivo have already overtaken Samsung and ZTE Corp (000063.SZ) in China, and are working to chase down the big three of Huawei [HWT.UL], Xiaomi [XTC.UL] and Apple in 2016," said Strategy Analytics analyst Neil Mawston. SELFIES  Jordan 1 High OG Mens Shoes  , GIMMICKS To be sure, these lower-priced newcomers lack the firepower of the premium brands, and operate on razor-thin margins or at losses. They need mass volume sales to keep going, the industry experts said. OPPO sold 10.8 million smartphones, giving it a 9 percent market share and a top-5 ranking, in the fourth quarter of last year  Jordan 1 High OG Mens  , according to Strategy Analytics - even as the overall China market slipped 4 percent. OPPO's R7 smartphone, priced at 1,999 yuan ($304), touts itself as a "selfie expert", with a bigger screen than the iPhone 6S and competitive camera resolution. Vivo ranked fourth with 10 percent market share, below Apple's 13 percent. The growth among these younger vendors comes as Apple  , Xiaomi and others struggle to maintain momentum in a market swamped with smartphones and fading economic growth. Analysts say the newcomers run eye-catching marketing gimmicks, including sponsorship with local TV shows, and have extensive retail networks in lower-tier cities. "There's only so much the international firms can do when it comes to localized marketing in China," said Nicole Peng at Canalys. "For foreign companies like Samsung, their marketing strategies don't really cater to the Chinese consumer." Sixth-ranked Samsung declined to comment. Apple last week forecast a first revenue drop in 13 years and posted the slowest-ever increase in iPhone shipments as the Chinese market showed signs of weakening. CHALLENGES AHEAD China has nine of the world's top-12 smartphone brands, with nearly a quarter of the market share  Air Jordan 1 High OG Top 3  , according to CounterPoint Research, but turning that into volume sales beyond China will be a challenge. Overseas, Chinese brands lack strong distribution networks and can run into intellectual property issues. OPPO is already in several Asian and Middle East markets, while Vivo is in Malaysia and India. And at home, Chinese device buyers are notoriously fickle, switching between brands in a cut-throat market. Regular price wars have seen ZTE and Lenovo Group (0992.HK) frequently swap places in the sales rankings. "The lines between 'high-end' and 'low-end' devices is blurring  Air Jordan 1 High OG Re2pect  , which leaves price as the sole differentiator for most mass market buyers," said Sameer Singh, an analyst who blogs at "Brand image tends to be a lagging indicator of customer experience, i.e. as the latter improves, so does word-of-mouth and consequently brand image. I think that's what we're seeing with Chinese brands today."
