I'm gonna say Moyu, though YJ is pretty close.
Moyu has made:
- The gold standard for budget cubes, the RS3M 2020
- The WRM series, which are amazing cubes for a very manageable price
- The GTSxM series
- A brilliant 4x4
- The largest produced cube (21x21)

YJ has made:
- A great 2x2
- A pretty good 3x3 with the mgc elite and the mgc evo
- The best 6x6 on the market by far
- Amazing 4x4, 5x5 and 7x7 cubes
- The best Squan on the market by far

If it comes to only 3x3 its between GAN and MoYu
Probably yes.
So I guess it's between expensive but really (in the case of gan 11 and maybe 12 REALLY) good cubes, and some solid or really good cubes for manageable prices, including a budget cube.
If you want cubes that are guaranteed really fast, go for GAN
If you want cubes that are fast too, but feel different and are maybe a little more stable (and have lower prices), go for Moyu.

Looking at only 3x3, the main competitors are Moyu and GAN, but I would say qiyi still has some pretty good ones.

GAN Pros
Fast cubes
Core magnets
Adjustability
"Premium"
Light and flimsy feel

GAN Cons
Ridiculously Expensive
No screw and spring
Light and flimsy feel
No budget option
Bad quality control


Moyu Pros
Midrange to low prices
More stable and sturdy cubes
Best tensioning system
Has many great budget options
Low packaging and simplicity, which some like

Moyu Cons
I couldn't think of anything
Lmk if anyone does

Qiyi Pros
Mid range price

Good budget cubes
Very decent tensioning system
Sturdy feeling(more than moyu)
Premium unboxing

Qiyi cons
No modern cubes that are accepted as very good
Hard to setup
Lots of packaging


To me, moyu is the clear winner but next up is qiyi just because I like their cubes. Yes, some people like gan, but the price puts it out of range for many.

GAN for me (But only the cheaper ones xD), but...

If you want a timer that you can throw off a cliff, buy QiYi.

GAN is expensive but good
YJ made MGC which is known for big cubes
Moyu made RS3M which is like so good and also made WRM and GTS
Qiyi made Valk and X-man which are both amazing and also made Qiyi MS and other cheap but quality puzzles
Yuxin does not come up with new cubes very often but they made Yuxin Little Magic which is good and I love their animals
Dayan made Tengyun and Guhong which are both good cubes and Dayan is known for quiet cubes|

FACT: Moyu comes from YJ and it is owned by YJ
I love Qiyi very much but the fact that YJ owns Moyu and Moyu and YJ both produce good cubes, I will say YJ is the winner
