Xiaomi Black Shark 3 Pro - only for gamers
Xiaomi's line of gaming smartphones has always enjoyed limited popularity. The reason for not the most outstanding sales was the exceptional focus of gadgets on Android games, while other functionality was not so impressive compared to other flagships. Unfortunately, the hero of this review did not change the situation.
UMiDIGI S5 Pro - evolution or a cry of despair?
The history of the Chinese company Umidigi lasts almost a dozen years, but the corporation can not get into the A-brands in any way. Somewhere there is not enough funding, in certain cases - specialists in software optimization. But it’s hard not to see the efforts of designers, marketers and other manufacturer’s personnel. The hero of this review is aimed at the middle price segment, in which the developer has not released new products for a long time. And it seems that the company invested almost the last funds in this unit.
Elephone E10 - when performance is not needed
Users use smartphones in different ways; arguing with this fact is pointless. A number of people prefer not only to call and send SMS, but also to take dozens of photos a day, while others love to spend hundreds of minutes in web surfing. The hero of this review is suitable for almost all categories of buyers, with the exception of fans of games.
Meizu 17 Pro - flagship resurrection
The financial condition of the Chinese company Meizu is close to critical, which is reflected in the corporation withdrawing from the markets of many states and the almost complete absence of new smartphone models. However, the manufacturer did not become depressed and still tries to correct the situation. The hero of this review should show the audience that the once-famous developer can still surprise.
OnePlus Z - priority shift
The Chinese company Vanplas is not the largest assortment of smartphones aimed at the high price segment. And although in the eyes of users the brand is associated exclusively with expensive phones, the manufacturer is not averse to “bite off a piece” of the average cost category. And although the previous attempt in the person of Model X was unsuccessful, the hero of today's review has a chance of success.
Huawei Honor 30S - birth of a hit?
One of the main conditions for the success of smartphones of any corporation is not to follow modern trends, but to predict new ones. The Chinese company Huawei is succeeding in this matter, and the hero of this review is aimed at providing 5G networks and excellent functionality at the lowest price, which will definitely please buyers this year.
Huawei Honor Play 9A - it will be a little expensive!
The Chinese company Huawei is slowly updating the segment of its budget smartphones, even if the attention of the audience is focused more on flagship devices. However, the corporation’s most affordable phones this year are extremely peculiar, and the hero of this review is also not deprived of a number of significant disadvantages, depriving him of his potential hit title.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite - beauty that does not require sacrifices
The flagship line of smartphones of the Chinese company Xiaomi has always included devices that are exceptionally stylish and balanced for its price. However, the last representative of the series with the Lite index became a real revolution in the segment, because no one had yet provided the design and functionality of a full-fledged flagship for such a modest amount of money. The hero of today's review is trying to keep up with the successful predecessor.
Xiaomi Mi 10T - the ideal is cheaper
The Chinese company Xiaomi, though some time ago announced a noticeable rise in price for its flagships, is not in a hurry to withdraw the entire arsenal of top gadgets to the premium segment. A significant number of fans will not be able to quickly get used to the changes, so corporations simply need “transitional” models. The hero of today's review combines all the features of a modern flagship device, but does not shock with its price tag.
Xiaomi Redmi 9 - originality squared
The eighth generation of the most affordable smartphones from Redmi, a sub-brand of Xiaomi Corporation, has caused quite a lot of criticism. The emphasis in the devices was on autonomy, while productivity decreased in comparison with the seventh representatives of the line, which was not accepted positively. The hero of this review should not fall face in both the duration of work and power. However, some manufacturer decisions will again create controversy and discontent.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G - now another thing!
Marketers of the Chinese company Xiaomi sometimes make incredibly smart and balanced decisions, but at the same time they can make many terrible omissions. So, the ninth generation Note-line of excellent phablets had every chance of losing the status of best sellers due to the weak difference in technical characteristics from those of its predecessors and the lack of NFC. But the hero of today's review corrects an almost fatal situation.
Lenovo A7 - budget frustration
The Chinese company Lenovo is less and less pleased with its fans with the release of really interesting smartphones.

The hero of today's review, unfortunately, does not change the situation at all.
Cubot J9 - beautiful outside, terrible inside
There is a feeling that the affairs of the Chinese company Kubot are not very successful. The latest innovations of the corporation, although they differ in modern appearance and affordable price, but still can not please the functionality inherent in many of their opponents. The hero of today's review, unfortunately, is also a technologically backward product.
Cubot Note 10 - nothing but appearance?
The modern design of the smartphone is an important component of the success of the product, especially in the lower price segment. However, users are becoming more demanding every year, and only one attractive wrapper can no longer appease them. Unfortunately, the hero of this review offers little in addition to the beauty of the exterior.
Cubot King Kong CS - antiquity, relevant again?
The re-release of the smartphone is a very rare event, usually only the most popular and interesting models get it. However, the original King Kong from the Chinese company Kubot can be called such with a big stretch. But updating the operating system to Android Q and a significant reduction in prices significantly increase the attractiveness of the gadget.
Xiaomi Mi 6 Classic Edition - rethinking the classics
The re-release of the legendary smartphone is a rare and very important event for the manufacturer, because in the new product it is necessary to combine both recognizable features of the predecessor and parameters relevant to the market. But it seems that the experienced Chinese company Xiaomi is quite capable of such tasks.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S - stretching assortment
Sometimes there is a strange sensation of the fact that the Chinese company Xiaomi artificially increases the number of smartphones it offers. The same model in different markets has different indices, and sometimes only a small change in technical characteristics carries metamorphoses in the names. The hero of today's review, unfortunately, did not escape such a fate.
Oppo Realme Harzo 10 - economical bestseller
The second representative of the new Harzo line is of no less interest to the target audience, namely young people who want to get the most functionality from their mobile assistant with a minimum of expenses for its acquisition.

Huawei Nova 7 Pro - flagship style
The Chinese company Huawei quickly recovered after litigation and continues to increase sales, including in the flagship segment. Each new model combines a catchy design, performance and an excellent price, thanks to which, even without Google services, phones manage to compete on equal terms even with more expensive representatives of the market. The hero of today's review was no exception.
Xiaomi Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition - the name must be long
The Chinese company continues to increase the range of products offered, while using an increasing number of indexes, which are sometimes easy to get confused even for a devoted fan of the company. The hero of today's review is perhaps the champion in terms of the length of the name. But what prompted the manufacturer to do this?
Xiaomi Redmi K30 Pro - frantic power
A sub-brand of the Chinese company Xiaomi called Redmi decided to repeat the sensation that K20 smartphones made on the market. At the same time, the developer’s approach is even repeated: at first the corporation produces a phone that is simpler in technical specifications, and then it explodes the audience with an inexpensive flagship with the same design.
Elephone A7H - a smartphone with a twist
The number of new products from the Chinese company Elephone this year is surprising. With all the many announcements, it’s also difficult to single out frankly pass-through phones. The corporation makes every effort to ensure that the announced devices possess not only a memorable appearance and relevant technical characteristics, but also a number of competitive advantages. The hero of today's review was no exception.
ZTE Axon 11 5G - meaningless efforts?
Residents of the CIS countries have already managed to forget the order of such a smartphone manufacturer as ZTE. But just a few years ago, the products of the corporation were known, and the flagship Axon with the number 7 in the name impressed with its design, functionality and outstanding sound. What has changed in a short period of time and can the once popular developer be able to regain its former glory?
Blackview BV9900 Pro - strength without zest
The secure smartphone segment has probably undergone the greatest evolution over the past few years. The reduction in size, a significant increase in functionality and autonomy, positive changes in design - the list can go on for an extremely long time. But the main thing is that almost every IP68 flagship brings something new. Unfortunately, the hero of today's review refers to such devices with a stretch.
Oppo Realme 6i - neither fish nor fowl
A sub-brand of the famous Chinese company Oppo called Realmi is slowly capturing an increasingly large part of the smartphone market, however, the young manufacturer can not do without strange actions. So, almost all the representatives of the sixth generation of phones of the main line of the developer significantly exceeded their predecessors in many respects, but the ugly duckling was not without it.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro - noticeable changes
The Chinese company Xiaomi tightly holds in its hands the primacy in almost all price categories of the smartphone market. One of the main opponents in the face of Huawei is almost surpassed, but the manufacturer does not think to stop expanding its fan base. And such phones as the hero of today's review will only contribute to an increase in the number of fans of the company, because the model significantly exceeds the competitors and predecessor.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro Max - a bit of Apple, a pinch of Huawei
Smartphone manufacturers like to watch opponents and borrow their ideas, albeit slightly modifying them. Someone will call it partial copying, but representatives of development companies usually replace this word with the term “benchmarking”. The novelty from Xiaomi Corporation is definitely made with an eye on the latest products of competitors, as evidenced even by its name. However, the gadget carries only the best features of rivals in the industry.
Ulefone Armor 7E - cheaper flagships
Chinese manufacturers love to use the same device design, which has received approval from the audience. Following one successful smartphone, several of its variations with different technical characteristics immediately follow. The hero of today's review is a textbook example of such a situation.
AGM H2 - budget experiment
IP68 smartphones protected from dust and moisture by the Chinese company AGM regularly receive high marks from critics and are notable for good sales all over the world. However, most of the company's products belong to the middle and upper price ranges of the market, while it is cheap phones that bring big profits to manufacturers. The hero of today's review should correct the situation, however, the developer’s small experience in producing inexpensive gadgets is visible in the model with the naked eye.
Oppo Find X2 Pro - hope dies last
The Chinese company Oppo did not forget to present an improved version of its flagship. Impeccable design and performance will now coexist with "pumped" photographic capabilities and protection against dust and splashes according to IP68 standards. But are these changes worth the even higher price tag?
Oppo Find X2 - premium class for the inexperienced
The flagships of the Chinese company Oppo have always been distinguished by inflated prices, however, at the same time, sales of the top products of the corporation were quite worthy. The reason for success is the presence of a number of competitive advantages, as well as a combination of impeccable design and quality materials. And if the hero of this review did not lose the last parameters, then with the interesting technological chips the device is all mediocre.
Xiaomi Mi 10S - premium for half the price
The Chinese company Xiaomi kept its promise to produce more expensive, but at the same time insanely technological flagships.

Xiaomi Redmi 10X - mysterious changes
The Chinese company Xiaomi some time ago made the Redmi sub-brand a separate corporation engaged in the production of less expensive smartphones.

Ulefone Armor X7 - outdated innovations
The Chinese company Ulefon has significantly transformed the proposed range of low-cost smartphones.

Asus ROG Phone 3 - game to the bone
Since the advent of a large number of interesting and technologically advanced multiplayer Android games (Call Of Duty Mobile, PUBG, Fortnite and others), interest in productive smartphones adapted for them has increased significantly.

Asus Zenfone 7 - the evolution of technology
The flagship Zenfone-line of smartphones from the Taiwanese company Asus can pleasantly surprise.

Blackview BV9600E - artificial expansion of the range
The Chinese company Blackview has currently sold almost a million smartphones BV9600 and its Pro version, which is an achievement for a small corporation.

But are the changes noticeable?
Xiaomi Mi CC10 - the struggle of style and functionality

However, in addition to external perfection, the gadget has several other aces up its sleeve.
Meizu 17th - the saving flagship?

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 - getting into the "nine"
A sub-brand of the Chinese company Xiaomi called Redmi is becoming increasingly popular all over the world. Despite statements by representatives of the corporation that its products will go up in price, we see only the reverse process, because now even at the turn of the low and medium price segments the user receives not only a beautiful, but also a productive, stand-alone phone, practically devoid of any drawbacks . And the hero of today's review does not violate this rule.
Doogee S95 - lower price tag, higher sale!
