Phone Reviews (page 13)
Vernee M2 - "not just bezelless"?
The Chinese company Vernee for several years of its activity in the smartphone market has not managed to form an unambiguous opinion of the audience about itself. It seems that its products were more than competitive, but a weak marketing campaign, not the most optimized and modified software and some overpriced models, did not allow the developer to occupy a strong place in the industry. Can the "innovative" hero of today's review be able to make the manufacturer more popular?
Lenovo K8 - minimum originality, maximum balance
Literally a couple of years ago, the Chinese company Lenovo at a very democratic price released on the market extremely interesting and very competitive smartphones. A830, K860, K900, K920 - the list of successful models can be continued for a very long time. But whether the pressure from opponents, or internal problems of the manufacturer have reduced the number of attractive phones. Will the hero of today's review become a worthy representative of its price segment?
Meiigoo M1 - when the effort is not in vain
The Chinese company Meiigoo is a newcomer in the market. However, if such firms usually begin from the most budget segment, in which not the highest quality of products and a faceless design are pardonable, then this producer took on an medium-high cost category, offering us a virtually flagship product. Didn't the first pancake turn out to be lumpy?
Xiaomi Mi A1 - excellence at a low price?
The Chinese company Xiaomi can be treated differently, but it is impossible to deny the fact of its success in the smartphone market. The rational cost of production, its full compliance with current standards in terms of a design and functionality allow the company to receive super-profit. And it seems that the list of bestsellers of the corporation was replenished with one more device.
Zopo P5000 - when the similarity is not for the benefit
The Chinese company Zopo has not limited itself by the one flagship this year. However, if other developers, issuing several top smartphones at once, make various accents in them (for example, the ZTE Nubia Z11 bezellessness and the musical component of Axon 7), then the company in question produced almost identical products.
Zopo Z5000 - an attempt to rehabilitate popularity
Once a well-known and popular Chinese company Zopo is going through not the best of times. About three or four years ago something unique happened to it: its products began to lag behind in the technical component from competitors, while considerably outstripping opponents at a price. It's no wonder that such smart phones did not have success with the audience. But the manufacturer decided to change his mind in time, and the hero of today's review can still return to him at least a part of the former glory.
Elephone C8 - "kill the iPhone" again!
Chinese companies just love to release "killers" smartphones of the famous American brand Apple. Unfortunately, compete with the flagships such products can only in terms of some characteristics, seriously yielding at the same time at a number of other indicators. And the hero of today's review is not an exception.
Huawei P11 - the flagship of the future
Products of the Chinese company Huawei are associated not only with an excellent assembly, great design and remarkable functionality, but also with manufacturability. The last point is especially evident in the company's flagship gadgets. And the hero of today's review refers precisely to this category of amazing and impressing imagination devices.
Doogee S30 - style, grace and IP68-protection
The Chinese company Doogee for the last couple of years has made a big step forward. Virtually every its smartphone causes genuine interest of the audience. The recent flagship S60 especially amazed people, simply deprived of any disadvantages for its price. And now it's time to release his cheaper follower.
Allcall Rio Pro - durable beauty
The Chinese company Allcall is nominally still a newcomer to the smartphone market. However, positive reviews about its products from critics and ordinary buyers, as well as excellent sales allow the company to set new goals. And now the developer decided to make attempts to exit the budgetary price segment.
Xiaomi Mi6A - finally a bestseller?
The Chinese company Xiaomi for a long time can not create a successful sub-flagship. Not very productive Mi5C, not cheap Mi5X - these models have a number of advantages, but it is simply impossible to call them ideal. The hero of today's review does his best to change the situation and become the intermediate link between the budget Redmi and the flagship lines that the audience needs.
Vernee M5 - when the competitor is understandable without unnecessary questions
The Chinese company Vernee can not decide on the positioning of its products. On the one hand, the assembly of most smartphones was at a high level, and their compliance with the price segment in terms of technical characteristics did not cause any claims. On the other hand, the company began to literally copy the names of opponents, because of which a part of the audience may have an association with a fake or a "basement brand."
Meizu M6C - a budget phone with a capital letter
At the end of the previous year the Chinese corporation Meizu presented to the public an interesting and extremely inexpensive M5c smartphone, released to fight the main competitor in the face of Xiaomi and its excellent Redmi 4A. Unlike its rival, the model offered a more modern design and a fingerprint scanner. But what was relevant in 2016, now looks like an archaism. The company understands this fact.
Meizu M6 - a compact perfection
The Chinese company is able to surprise. Unfortunately, both from the positive and negative sides. Top devices of the current year have been quite controversial, forcing today to argue millions about their merits and demerits. However, the company's budget smartphones are more unambiguous.
Allcall Alpha - a sheep in the skin of a wolf
The Chinese company Allcall is known for good, but not the most outstanding inexpensive smartphones. Unfortunately, the firm does not take any steps to develop the assortment or increase the quality and functionality of products. And the hero of today's review is a clear proof of that.
Bluboo S2 - the unexpected flagship
The Chinese company Bluboo is trying in every possible way to follow the fashion trends in the current smartphone market. Today, the dance is ruled by bezelless phones, striking with beauty and ergonomics. And the hero of today's review refers specifically to this category of apparatus. But to fight his competitors, he has several aces in his sleeve.
Coolpad Cool M7 - stylish, but expensive
The Chinese company Coolpad definitely knows how to make wonderful smartphones. This is talked about its previous models (we recall the excellent Cool1 and 1C), as well as the impressive sales volume, thanks to which the company is included in the TOP-10 manufacturers of smart phones. But failures comprehend even geniuses, and the hero of today's review can hardly be called a future bestseller.
VKworld T2 Plus - the revival of a forgotten form-factor?
A dozen years ago, "clamshells" were popular and loved by millions of people. However, the advent of large touch screens led to the victory of monoblocks. But the Chinese company Vkworld with nostalgia recalls the 2000's. That's why the hero of today's review looks appropriate.
Cubot X18 Plus - high-level shooting
The Chinese firm Kubot simply attacks fans with a huge number of interesting, stylish and really topical models. And now it was the turn of the lovers of quality photography to be admired. But is this part of the market audience only going to be enthusiastic about the novelty?
Cubot H3 - a long-playing camera phone
The Chinese company Cubot continues to expand the range of its smartphones. Now the company decided to meet the needs of both lovers of high-qualitative photography, and long-term battery life of gadgets. And the hero of today's review excellently copes with these tasks.
Cubot King Kong - when the name is more impressive
The Chinese company knows how to choose the original "nicknames" for its products. However, sometimes the associations held by fans of the company do not always correspond to the actual technical characteristics of the smartphone. And with the hero of today's review this situation will happen.
Cubot X18 - stylish and optimal
The expenditure of money for buying a smartphone can reach thousands of dollars. But not everyone who likes smart phones can afford such amounts. In most cases, savings are side by side with compromises in the appearance of the unit and its functionality. But the hero of today's review is actually spared from this kind of concessions despite his modest price.
HOMTOM S8 - invasion of bezelless phones
A bezelless display is becoming more popular, being one of indicators of the evolution of smartphones. The lack of bezels allows you to get more compact, ergonomic devices that can provide comfort of use on a completely new level. But will the hero of today's review surprise us with anything else?
OnePlus 5T - discarding all frames
After a short period of time, the vast majority of smartphone manufacturers is releasing an enlarged edition of their flagships. Usually they differ by scanty changes in technical parameters, appearance and autonomy for better conformity to the segment. However, the hero of today's review has undergone significant metamorphosis in comparison with its predecessor.
Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro - the phone of a real "narcissus"
A front camera for the past few years has become one of the main criteria for choosing a smartphone. With the help of selfie we can capture the most important moments of our lives. And the hero of today's review copes with this task flawlessly. But how are things going with other functions?
Maze Comet - an instruction to create the ideal?
The young, only growing Chinese company Maze did not spare money and a lot of its efforts to create smartphones that can stand out against the popular competitors. Characteristics of the today review's hero often changed in the time of its development, but the changes were not excess, because the resulting product is impressive.
UMiDIGI S2 - beautiful and autonomous
The modern user is becoming more and more spoiled by stylish, technological smartphones, practically devoid of any drawbacks. However, the Chinese company Umidigi is well aware of this fact, and to the brilliant appearance and impressive technical parameters adds autonomy and a democratic price.
Uhans MX - the presence of beauty
It is hard for the Chinese company Uhans to compete with numerous rivals in the smartphone market. However, the company does not lose hope for the commercial success of its products. The bet in the hero of today's review is made on an impeccable style, and the developers have really managed to create an interesting, memorable design. But does the corporation only think about gaining an audience?
UMiDIGI S2 Pro - a long-playing ideal
The Chinese company Umidigi definitely knows what the audience of the modern smartphone market needs. An autonomy, power of technical characteristics, a perfect design and a reasonable price - this is the list of parameters of a potential bestseller. And the company made every effort to give them to the hero of today's review. But how did the final result come about?
Doogee BL7000 - a business class smartphone?
You can't deny the variety of the model line of phones of the Chinese company Doogee. Recently appeared BL-line has presented to the fans of the company not only stylish, but also technological, incredibly self-contained devices, capable at the same time to differ by a reasonable price. And the hero of today's review is the most expensive one of its representatives. Does it justify the requested value?
Maze Alpha - the leader from nowhere?
The Chinese company Maze in a short time managed to attract public attention. The reason for this is impeccable in terms of style, performance and price smartphones. And despite the small experience of developers, these phones have every chance of success. Especially these words concern the hero of today's review.
Lenovo K8 Plus - the return of a king?
Last year the fans of the Chinese company Lenovo have a strong impression that the company completely gave its part of the audience to more aggressive in terms of marketing Xiaomi, Meizu, Huawei and other compatriots. In addition, products of the corporation were also not very competitive. But the hero of today's review, it seems, should change the situation.
Doogee S60 - a flawless protection
The Chinese company Doogee does not want to slow down its victorious movement in the smartphone market. It has not grown to A-brands, but the gap becomes more illusive. The hero of today's review confirms this fact.
Vernee Thor Plus - a long-playing phablet
The Chinese company Vernee knows with what it can attract buyers. Even the most inexpensive smartphones of a company are characterized not only by the excellent style, great functionality and assembly quality, but also by an excellent autonomy. And the hero of today's review isn't an exception to the rules.
Doogee Mix Lite - a bezelless, budget and very compact phone
The Chinese company Doogee never ceases to amaze the audience of a smartphone market. Emboding in a hero of today's review all the most fashionable "chips", the company did not deprive him of a modest price. But is the novelty so ideal in reality?
Oukitel C6 Plus - an uncompromising phablet
The Chinese company Oukitel is becoming more popular both in China and outside of its homeland. The reason for this is the increased quality of products, its pleasant design and a balanced technical component. However, the smartphone developer still lacks some competitive advantages, which can distinguish it among opponents. Can a hero of today's review correct the situation?
Oukitel C6 - Let's save wisely!
The choice of an ultrabudgetary smartphone is a rather complicated process. Due to the low cost of the product manufacturers have to go to various tricks in order to make the phone balanced and competitive. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to find the right balance. But the hero of today's review will not disappoint us.
Oukitel C6 Pro - a budget phone with taste
The low price segment of the smartphone market has seriously changed. If a couple of years ago, the user needed only to be provided with a more or less functional phone that has enough for the day's light autonomy, today the situation is completely different. The eye-pleasing appearance, almost equal to the flagship devices functional, a large battery - this is not a complete list of what the audience wants to see. And it seems that the hero of today's review satisfies its requests.
HOMTOM HT50 Pro - an autonomous beauty
The pace of modern life, its saturation requires from a mobile assistant not only functionality, but also a long time of working on battery power. In addition, the smartphone has become one of the attributes of fashion, demonstrating a good taste of its owner. And the hero of today's review excellently combines all of the above.
Xiaomi Mi Mix S - an addition to excellence
The Chinese company Xiaomi perfectly demonstrates its abilities in all possible price segments of the smartphone market. It has success also in premium devices. And in spite of the fact that its ceramic bezelless phablet was awarded with high marks of critics and many awards, the corporation did not stop there.
Elephone Fighter - fighting with low autonomy
The Chinese company Elephone does not miss the chance to increase the range of proposed models once again. Now it paid attention to the segment of long-playing smartphones. However, unlike many competitors, the hero of the review is deprived of cumbersome dimensions, a mediocre design and modest technical characteristics. Will it help him to become popular?
TCL Mix - no bezels, no problems
The company TCL, which is better known in the CIS countries under the brand Alcatel, definitely enjoys popularity, but usually only in the low price segment. This situation does not suit the company, and it decided to create a beautiful bezelless smartphone, not devoid of decent functionality and a democratic price. Did everything come from the developer?
Bluboo S8 + - an attempt to conquer the market
The Chinese company Bluboo does not lose hopes of capturing the high price segment. And because the company is still little known, and the budget does not allow to launch a large-scale marketing campaign, it needs to create a smartphone from which even the most fastidious critics will have a sense of delight. Is it possible for a hero of today's review?
Bluboo S8 Lite - cheap and bezelless
The Chinese company Bluboo can easily create beautiful, technological and at the same time inexpensive smartphones. However, the software in many models of the company does not always meet market standards, and a modest advertising campaign does not contribute to huge sales of products. But in the case of today's hero, the developer tried to take into account all the nuances.
Meizu M6 Mini - long-awaited metamorphosis
The Chinese company Meizu is definitely reviewing the direction of its development. And while the company's fans are discussing an innovative, but at the same time rather controversial Pro 7 (Plus), the corporation decided to present a budget phone, significantly different from its predecessors. Did the new representative of the M-line go for the benefit of change?
Oneplus 6 - a successful flagship?
It seems that the Chinese company Oneplus was accustomed to alternating beautiful and mediocre models of its own production. The second generation of flagships made the fans disappointed, and the last product was controversial. Literally repeating the products of Apple design, problems with displays, frequent reboots, not the most outstanding photographic part - all this spoiled the impression of a good, but not innovative phablets. However, the hero of today's review does not allow such blunders.
Uhans Max 2 - a large camera phone
The Chinese company Uhans does not lose vigilance for a second, closely following the actions of competitors. And so, when the category of really huge phablets at a democratic price remained almost without attention of opponents, the firm decided to act. And the hero of today's review is unlikely to disappoint even the fastidious lovers of almost-tablets.
Lenovo K8 Note - a strange continuation
The Chinese company Lenovo is able to please its fans, but there are many failed smartphones in its history. The hero of today's review is unlikely to be a bestseller, and these are several reasons for that. Why did the manufacturer allow them to appear at the production stage?
Lenovo K7 Note - another "killer"
The Chinese company Lenovo is not deprived of self-esteem. Despite the fact that its new products do not have a crazy popularity, the company does not hesitate to promote them as the best choice in its price category. The hero of today's review is also not deprived of aggressive advertising. So who will the novelty be able to "kill" on an incredibly competitive market?
Ulefone S8 Pro - an elegant camera phone
The Chinese company Ulefone does its utmost to surprise its loyal fans pleasantly, while winning hearts of other consumers also. And now the company decided to combine in the one smartphone remarkable photographic capabilities, an excellent design and an incredibly modest price. Surprisingly, the combination of these parameters is organized in the hero of today's review.
