China will make it as good or bad as you want. You tell them your budget, how much profit margin you want, and what you acceptable defect rate is and tada you got a manufacturer. They’ll make you a flawless iPad, or, baby food with poison in it. Whatever you want to pay for.Nokia ? Samsung ? Sony ? .. not everything is made in China ..though “most“ of everything else seems to be nowadays ..
I have B&O, McIntosh, and Nakamichi stereo equipment in the house , the main TV is B&0 ( the other ones are Sony, Samsung, and Pioneer ), all of our kitchen and other household appliances are either German, French, Italian, or American ( US ) .. so there is a way to avoid Chinese products, if you really try ( and willing to spend a lot more for them ..) but I do have an iPhone and an IPad , so I have not escaped entirely ..
I do believe China does make some high end products, but the cheaper the gizmos are, the crappier , IMO.
