The twin forces driving the mobile marketplace are digital innovation and consumer tastes. Consumers have become more demanding and are now strongly influencing design as new technology has grown in power and versatility. In the fast-moving and highly competitive smartphone marketplace, where user experience is the key to product success and sales, one feeds the other.

Smartphone manufacturers must define the future, guided by their customers. They must be able to picture and grasp what customers want – whether it’s greater camera quality, longer battery life, or tempting features like foldable screens – and they must be able to anticipate changing needs. Above all, they must develop products for the 5G future, maximising the potential of next-generation communications while adhering to the mobile-first design concept.

The Chinese firm Vivo, a global leader in mobile goods and services, understands this better than anyone. Vivo’s goal, like that of most smartphone makers, is to be a tech-lifestyle trendsetter capable of meeting the demands of increasingly sophisticated users.

Vivo is building on last year’s successes and tailoring its user-centered innovation tactics to changing customer tastes, with the goal of breaking through in four long-term strategic tracks: photography, system, design, and performance.
