Samsung Galaxy M14 5G - one step away from being a hit
The Korean company Samsung has vast experience in creating phones and smartphones, thanks to which it is a recognized industry leader. However, even experienced developers fail. Sometimes from under their conveyor can come out both frankly passable devices, uninteresting to the audience, and good models that lack just a couple of changes to potentially grandiose success. This was the novelty under consideration.
Xiaomi Poco X5 Pro 5G - too good to be true?
A sub-brand of the Chinese company Xiaomi called Poco has been fulfilling the dreams of economical, but at the same time demanding users since its inception. Most of the smartphones produced by the corporation were distinguished by an incredible value for money, which was simply inaccessible to opponents. The hero of today's review fits the same description 100%.
Xiaomi Poco X5 5G - another success
In the middle price segment, there are more and more smartphones with outstanding gaming capabilities. The main reason for such a pleasant metamorphosis is the technological process and, as a result, the emergence of productive and at the same time inexpensive processors. The hero of today's review has one, but to reduce costs, developers from the Chinese company Xiaomi had to make a number of simplifications.
Xiaomi Redmi A2 - smaller compromises
The Chinese company Redmi (a sub-brand of Xiaomi Corporation) last year released a couple of smartphones in the lower price segment within the A-series. Unfortunately, in pursuit of cost reduction, the developer forgot about the functionality of the devices, which is why low-performance phones with an abundance of simplifications did not resonate with the audience. The hero of today's review is a work on the bugs, and quite successful.
Motorola Moto G73 5G - unusual, but sometimes not the most successful solutions
Over the past few years, Motorola has repeatedly delighted the audience of the smartphone market with many excellent phones.

However, there were quite strange units in the range of products offered, along with obvious advantages, and having visible disadvantages. The hero of today's review belongs to this category.
Realme 10 Pro - when the price becomes the only problem
Proper product positioning is one of the main keys to its success. A similar statement is true for the smartphone market.

This is exactly the situation that has developed with the hero of today's review.

Motorola Moto G23 - when the overpayment is not worth it
Sometimes within the same line of smartphones it is easy to find models with similar technical characteristics, but significantly different prices.

However, the hero of today's review is too similar to a more affordable alternative in the series.
Motorola Moto G13 - balanced but not outstanding
Motorola has vast experience in developing smartphones of various price categories, but sometimes even true masters of their craft make mistakes.

In the case of the hero of today's review, the simplifications turned out to be extremely insignificant.
Oppo Reno 8T 5G is an inexpensive but very nice smartphone
The Chinese company Oppo knows how to make great products in any category of devices, including mobile phones. However, the competition in the modern market is incredibly high, so simply creating a competitive device is not a guarantee of success.

How will the demanding audience of the market evaluate such an act?
Oukitel C32 - repeating after competitors?
The C-series of smartphones from the Chinese company Oukitel is a line of devices in the lower price segment, which should impose competition even on analogues from A-brands.

The hero of today's review sometimes even loses to existing alternatives.

However, a lot of really interesting models come out from under the manufacturer's conveyor. Such is the hero of today's review.
Xiaomi Poco C50 - too cheap smartphone
Creating an ultra-cheap phone is a difficult thing even for an experienced manufacturer, because you have to save literally on everything.

Unfortunately, the hero of today's review got pretty close to this definition.
