But it seems that the corporation was able to correct the situation in time.

The desire of the Chinese company AGM to return to its former positions is visible to the naked eye.

Will such a device become popular with a sophisticated audience?
AGM Glory G1 - controversial return
The Chinese company AGM, specializing in the production of smartphones with IP68 protection, several years ago was able to seriously declare itself with the X2 and X3 models. But apparently, most of the budget was spent on the products listed, and the money did not pay off due to the illiterate advertising campaign and the unknown brand for the audience as a whole. Due to the virtual failure, the corporation is only now showing signs of recovery and offers an updated flagship line. However, does the price of new products correspond to their functionality and quality?
Ulefone Note 6P - insufficient improvements
The Chinese company Ulefon is far from international success, however, very strong and relevant smartphones sometimes come out from under its conveyor, achieving good sales and audience love.

The corporation coped with the task only partially.

What should a modern camera phone be like? Among the proposed options, with a high degree of probability, there will be such epithets as productive, beautiful, autonomous and ergonomic.

Google Pixel 6 Pro - significant improvements

Although the device finally acquired an up-to-date design and retained its proprietary outstanding photographic capabilities, technical characteristics that were mediocre for the upper price segment affected the popularity of the gadget.

Vivo X80 - a flagship with a discount?
The X-series of smartphones of the Chinese company Vivo with each generation is becoming more beautiful, technologically advanced and often more pleasant in terms of price policy.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro+ - maximum return with minimum investment
The Chinese company Xiaomi has largely gained its popularity thanks to the line of excellent phablets of the Redmi series, which already belongs to a separate sub-brand.

But it seems that the world-famous corporation has decided to change the situation and demonstrate a strong progress in technical characteristics in the hero of today's review.
Honor X30i - repetition for opponents
The separation of the Chinese company Honor from the parent corporation Huawei and the gradual adaptation to the new working conditions affected the company's product range and the speed of its filling.

One of these gadgets was the hero of today's review.
Motorola Moto G71 - closer to success
The history of Motorola has many similarities with that of Nokia.

The hero of today's review is a clear confirmation of this.
Cubot J10 - we don't need such a compact

It is at her that the hero of today's review is aimed, although the dimensions have become, in fact, his only competitive advantage.
Doogee S35T - what to do with the buildings?

That's right, use it to create your favorite Italians next time. It was this logic that the Chinese company Dodge was guided by, implementing warehouse balances in the hero of today's review.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro - incremental improvements
Just a few years ago, every Note-line smartphone from the Chinese company Xiaomi was perceived as a revolution in the industry. The flagship third-generation performance for its time, the first 48-megapixel camera in the price category for the representatives of the seventh series is a short list of the competitive advantages of the legendary phones.

The Chinese company Xiaomi, although it loves to experiment, adheres to the rule that everything is good in moderation.

Now it's time to launch the firm's first flexible display phone.

Xiaomi Black Shark 4S - has something changed?
The release of an updated version of a popular smartphone is a simple and difficult task at the same time. On the one hand, the add-on does not need serious improvements, since most of the technical characteristics remain relevant, on the other hand, a demanding audience should still have reasons to change their "outdated" device to a more recent one. The Chinese company Xiaomi believes that an exclusively redesigned design can be such a reason for buying. Are her judgments correct?
Oppo K9s - about what a sub-flag should be
Every Android user wants to get top-end performance, autonomy and decent functionality of a mobile assistant, but not everyone can afford to buy an expensive flagship.

That is why smartphones like the hero of today's review are more relevant every day.
Vivo IQOO Neo5s - envy awakening?
It seems that the Chinese company Vivo has been simply mocking Android users from Europe and the CIS for the past few months. The new representatives of the Neo-line of smartphones simply amaze with their technical characteristics and a whole scattering of competitive advantages at a very reasonable price, and it is not so easy to buy them outside of China. The hero of today's review brings the price-to-quality ratio to some indecent heights.

The hero of today's review cannot be scolded for flaws in design or functionality, but he has no less interesting opponents among his brothers in the parent corporation.
Honor X30 Max - phablets are not extinct!

The hero of today's review combines a smartphone and a tablet, trying to maintain reasonable dimensions and advanced functionality.
Motorola Moto G51 - chasing competitors
Over the past few years, Motorola has managed to declare itself with a number of successful smartphones, but the corporation has not yet gained its former glory and, moreover, the leading position in the market.

The predecessors of the hero of today's review did not become bestsellers, but it is he who has the chance to rectify the situation.
Vivo IQOO 9 Pro - classic bestseller
The Chinese company Vivo can hardly be called experimenting. While the corporation's direct competitors are trying to create flagships with a flexible screen or other innovations, the aforementioned manufacturer is only developing the functionality and photo capabilities of all-in-one monoblocks that are familiar to everyone. However, I absolutely do not want to recognize such a strategy as unsuccessful at the sight of the hero of today's review.
ZTE Axon 31 Ultra 5G - one step away from the flagship heights
The Chinese company ZTE is still poorly represented in Europe and the CIS, however, the corporation's recovery after numerous litigations and related financial expenses is noticeable to the naked eye.

The hero of today's review is a clear confirmation of this.
Ulefone Armor X9 Pro - durable and outdated

Ulefone Power Armor 14 - following traditions

Xiaomi Civi Pro - total pleasure
The Chinese company Xiaomi does not stand still and literally every day tries to change under the updated market conditions. So, the manufacturer decided to seriously modify the CC line of smartphones, changing not only its name, but also the direction of the products presented.

The hero of today's review should repeat the success of his predecessor and even multiply it. Why? Let's figure it out.
Vivo IQOO Neo7 Lite is a sub-flag worthy of more
The marketers of the Chinese company Vivo sometimes unpleasantly surprise with their conclusions.

However, the developers' hope for nostalgia from the audience does not fade away, which is why models like the hero of today's review appear, the overpriced price tag of which is justified.
Blackview Oscal C20 Pro - too cheap?
The Chinese company Blackview, although it specializes in smartphones of the lower and middle price segment, nevertheless decided to create a separate sub-brand for the most budget phones. The first representatives of the assortment of the new corporation were greeted by the audience rather coolly. The reason for this was the excessive simplification of the parameters of new products with a not too low price tag. Unfortunately, the hero of today's review in this aspect does not differ from his predecessors.
Blackview BV4900S - miserable deterioration
The Chinese company Blackview has recently focused on rugged mid-price smartphones, somewhat forgetting about more budget devices.

Unfortunately, the manufacturer clearly went overboard with this action.

Unfortunately, the new product is far from its legendary predecessors.

The hero of today's review is no exception to the above rule.
Realme Q3s - increase in productivity
The Q-series of smartphones from the Realmi company finds a huge number of fans in the developer's homeland. Mostly related to the middle price segment, gadgets perfectly combine an eye-pleasing design and fairly wide functionality.

So, the hero of today's review is able to boast of an almost flagship chipset.
Xiaomi Poco C31 is not at all what was expected
Fans of Poco, a sub-brand of the famous Chinese company Xiaomi, were eagerly awaiting the September launch of the brand's new products.
