Cubot Nova - an affordable perfection?

However, it's never too late to correct mistakes, and the hero of our today's review is ready to show the real possibilities of the manufacturer.

But is everything ideal in a novelty in terms of ergonomics, durability and manufacturability?
Meizu 16th - justified time pressure

That's why the hero of today's review is ready to compete on an equal footing with the best representatives of the market without any compromise.
Oppo R15 - is it a flagship?
The Chinese company Oppo has a stunning popularity on the territory of its country. Beautiful, powerful smartphones of premium class with a great build quality are much more expensive than rivals, but this fact does not prevent them from selling millions of copies. The hero of today's review is the representative of the top corporation assortment, but it is extremely difficult to call the phone a future bestseller.
Lenovo K350 - maximum audience coverage
It seems that the Chinese corporation Lenovo finally forgot how to make great smartphones of the middle price segment. Otherwise, it is simply impossible to explain the fact of the creation of the hero of today's review, which tries to cover a huge cost range in its various complete sets.
Leagoo xRover - no compromises!
The Chinese company Leagoo still occupies an intermediate position between A-brands of China and little-known firms that trying to do their best to declare themselves.

The developer realizes the existing problem and decides to create a smartphone that will appeal to as many potential buyers as possible.
UMiDIGI A1 Pro - technology almost for free?
The Chinese corporation Umidigi remains practically at the same level of development as a few years ago.

And smartphones, like the hero of today's review, can ensure the success of the company.
Blackview BV6800 - excessive strength, deficient performance
The modern audience of the smartphone market is becoming more demanding.

Blackview A30 - useless beauty
Design is definitely one of the main factors in choosing a smartphone in the current market.

UMiDIGI One - deceptive design
The Chinese company Umidigi, although it has found a certain number of loyal fans, but still leaves controversial emotions among consumers. The company's products are not spared from lacks in the face of poor software optimization and sometimes not the best build quality, and the support of the released smartphones ends somehow too quickly. The hero of today's review at the announcement was perceived as a new stage of the evolution of the developer, but in reality everything is much more prosaic.
GOME K1 - the way for beginners!
The young Chinese smartphone maker Goma decided not to start from a low price segment, which is usually the case for inexperienced developers.

But is everything so perfect in reality?
Asus Zenfone 5Z - controversial flagship
The company Asus is able to create high-quality, balanced smartphones, as we have already seen many times. However, the failure models in its history are.

Unfortunately, the hero of today's review is not so close to the ideal, as we would like.
Huawei P20 Pro - crazy flagship
Chinese company Huawei does not take high self-esteem. If earlier the corporation offered technology flagship smartphones with a beautiful appearance, pleasing also with a reasonable price, today in terms of cost the most "cool" phone of the manufacturer is ready to argue with the products of Samsung and Apple. Will the fans of the company and the audience of the market appreciate this move?
UMiDIGI A1 - noise from nothing
The Chinese company Umidigi continues to stay in the gap between the producers of the first and second echelons. Problems with the software, lack of support for products released, and sometimes even deliberate distortion of technical characteristics do not allow the developer to become really popular. The hero of today's review is advertised as a new era of budget phones, but what does it really represent?
M-Horse Pure 3 - progress on the face
The Chinese company M-Horses is actually a newcomer to the market. However, for several years of activity the corporation managed to find dedicated fans who were satisfied with the appearance and functionality of the products. The firm also tries not to stop on the spot, providing more and more technologically advanced telephones. And the hero of today's review is ready to compete on an equal footing with the best representatives of the middle price segment.
Lenovo S5 - worthy competition?
Discarded beyond the leadership positions in the average price range, the Chinese company Lenovo presented several models at once, able in its opinion to struggle with the products of Xiaomi, Meizu and other popular brands today. And if the K520 causes mixed emotions, then the hero of today's review really looks like a potential bestseller.
ZTE Nubia N3 - expensive beauty
The affairs of the Chinese company ZTE in the average cost segment are not the best way. A huge number of competitors with aggressive pricing policy simply do not provide a chance for the organization's phones to find their place in the market. Attempts by the developer to correct the current situation do not lead to the desired result. On the example of the hero of today's review, you can understand the reasons for what happened.
Lenovo K520 - when the delay is too long
The Chinese company Lenovo slowly but surely turns into an outsider in the smartphone market. Balanced, competitive phones are coming out less and less, their release often occurs after the start of sales of similar models from opponents. The hero of today's review was no exception to this rule.
Vernee V3 - secure technology
The flagship IP68 smartphones are still quite rare. Unfortunately, protection from dust, moisture and falls adversely affects the appearance of the phone, because of which the manufacturer can hardly expect decent sales. The Chinese company Verni has tried to do everything possible to ensure that the strength and functionality of the novelties are combined with a nice looking design.
Vernee T3 - autonomy of a single
The initial success of the Chinese company Verni gave way to stagnation. The high potential of the output was ruined by such unpleasant things as the lack of support for a number of models, at times a high percentage of rejects, mediocre software optimization. However, instead of correcting the mistakes made, the firm produces all new products that now do not look so attractive against the background of opponents.
Blackview BV9500 - a smartphone that does not care
Sometimes you want to buy a flagship phone, ready for a long time to become a reliable mobile assistant. The Chinese company Blackview tried to implement in the hero of today's review as strength, and great functionality, design and autonomy. Is it really the perfect gadget that is not afraid of falls, moisture and dust?
Oukitel U19 - rational acquisition
The Chinese company Aukitel decided to mark the beginning of the year also with the release of a balanced, stylish model of a low-price smartphone. However, to isolate the device among many competitors, the corporation had to seriously try. Were the efforts in vain?
Elephone A4 Pro - available power
Buying a beautiful, productive smartphone almost always turns out to be a serious expense. However, the market does not do without several unique models, pleasing with design, manufacturability and at the same reasonable price. Thanks to the efforts of the Chinese company Elefon, we received another representative of such a rare category of really balanced phones.
HomTom HT70 is another long-liver
Excellent autonomy is one of the main indicators of a modern high-quality smartphone. Those days when charging the phone every day was considered the norm, now far behind. However, achieving more hours of active screen operation should not adversely affect ergonomics. The Chinese company Holtom realizes this fact, due to which he decided to release the smallest device with a battery of 10000mAh.
Ulefone T2 - outdated novelty
Designing a smartphone from scratch is a complex, costly process, both in terms of meeting customer needs and organizing production. Sometimes it’s much easier to take a few exterior elements from another popular phone and organically combine them with your best practices. However, sometimes the manufacturer wants to demonstrate its originality and gets stuck in the design and production bogs. As a result, the appearance of a brand new gadget upon exit is not relevant. And so it happened with the unit under consideration from the Chinese company Ulefon.
