Phone Reviews (page 14)
Xiaomi MI5X - not a flagship at all
The Chinese company Xiaomi often attempts to expand the range of its products. The mid-high price segment did not remain without attention. However, the hero of today's review can not be called its the most impressive representative. And there are several reasons for this.
Elephone P8 3D - a controversial revolution?
A few years ago, a 3D image implemented by a smartphone display was considered as a true innovation and attracted the attention of millions. However, the implementation of the new technology was not perfect enough: the volume was achieved only at certain viewing angles, and the 3D content came out in a quite little amount. The Chinese company Elephone decided to improve the system of output of 3D-image, giving the user the opportunity to enjoy a juicy, three-dimensional image, regardless of the inclination of the gadget.
HOMTOM HT40 Pro - a beautiful stagnation
Unlike the "senior" company Doogee, a no less well-known subbrand called HomTom is in no hurry to conquer the middle and high price segments. And the need for these actions would be insignificant if the firm provided the market with truly innovative, interesting smartphones. Unfortunately, the last year we see mostly self-recurrence. And the hero of today's review is hardly an exception to this rule.
Doogee X50 - opening up new horizons
The Chinese company Doogee is well aware of the need for differentiation of its products. Successful consolidation in the low price segment of the market will sooner or later lead the company to collapse, because the name of the corporation is already associated by the audience with inexpensive, balanced, but not outstanding products. Can the hero of today's review change the worldview of potential buyers?
Doogee X30L - style and grace of the low price segment
The Chinese company Doogee is becoming more popular due to inexpensive high-qualitative smartphones. On the one hand, this effectively cuts the manufacturer's path to high value categories, on the other hand, allows not to worry about problems with sales of existing products, and the technological level of budget devices is all the more impressive, including almost all the functionality of flagships. And the hero of today's review just refers to such "functional" models.
Uhans I8 - beauty in Chinese style
Although the Chinese company Uhans is not recognizable enough even on the territory of its own homeland, this does not reduce its potential and ambitions. The firm has already learned to analyze the events happening on the market and forecast future trends. And the hero of today's review, combining a worthy functional and a modest price, is a clear proof of the manufacturer's abilities.
Huawei Honor Note 9 - a new generation phablet
The Chinese company Huawei this year decided to impress its fans with a number of excellent devices of the high price segment. However, fans of smartphones with really large displays were left without pleasant surprises. And the hero of today's review has finally corrected this oversight.
UMIDIGI S - who said Meizu?!
The Chinese company Umidigi is able to create beautiful, memorable smartphones, but its latest models resemble the products of a famous competitor with the letter "M". But developers in every way deny the similarity and believe that the hero of today's review will surpass, if not all of its rivals, then the overwhelming majority of them. Is it real?
Leagoo KIICAA Power - a long-lasting beauty
To create a beautiful, memorable smartphone is a complex task and not always feasible even for eminent developers, especially when it comes to the low price segment of the market. However, the Chinese company Leagoo is not a "coward", and its efforts embodied in the wonderful hero of today's review. But if you succeeded in achieving an excellent appearance, how are things going with other components of a successful phone?
Gretel S55 - the desire to win
Each young company wants to realize itself, to demonstrate all the potential. And the Chinese manufacturer of smartphones Gretel is not an exception. It should be noted that already now the firm has several successful models that have found hundreds of thousands of buyers. The hero of today's review should consolidate the success even more.
Oukitel K3 - more cameras and style
The Chinese company Oukitel in many respects became famous because of its K-series of smartphones that possess both incredible autonomy and worthy technical parameters. However, most of the representatives of the line categorically needed a thoughtful design and good photographic abilities. And the corporation decided to correct this mistake.
Xiaomi Mi7 - and where are any disadvantages?
The Chinese company Xiaomi carefully thinks of every action, considering both the activities of competitors, and dozens, hundreds of other factors. That is why its products are so popular in a significant number of countries. In addition, the fact of the reluctance of the corporation to stop in development is surprising. Each new smartphone of the manufacturer seriously surpasses its predecessor in many respects. And the hero of today's review is not an exception.
Xiaomi Redmi 5A - when there are some spare parts
The production of modern smartphones is a complex and lengthy process. And when the developer already has an established production line of this or that smartphone element, it is difficult to change it to new components. That is why the Chinese company Xiaomi decided to update its most budgetary model in a rather unusual way.
Xiaomi Redmi 5X - a compact perfection
The line of inexpensive, balanced and extremely long-playing smartphones of the Chinese company Xiaomi is becoming more popular every year. Tens of millions of sold devices are incredibly pleasing their customers, but the corporation does not want to stop there. And if the difference between the third and fourth generation of phones was not the most impressive, then the hero of today's review is ready to create a small revolution in the segment.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A - a reasonable simplification
"Lite" versions of more expensive and technologically advanced smartphones are rarely commercially successful. Unfortunately, price reduction is not always proportional to the deterioration of technical characteristics or a design. The Chinese corporation Xiaomi understands this fact. That's why the hero of today's review came out so balanced and attractive.
Huawei P20 - evolution of the line
Top smartphones of the Chinese company Huawei make us admire them. Excellent assembly quality works together with excellent technology and a stunning design. The process of updating the flagships has been accelerating lately, and the corporation has decided to release another device of the high price range. Will not people who bought the relatively new P10 be upset? And by what else are the actions of the firm justified?
Xiaomi Chiron - a mysterious flagship
The range of smartphones offered by the Chinese corporation Xiaomi has significantly expanded in recent years. If previously the standard Mi-line was considered as flagship, today the company added to this range Mix and Mi Note. But it seems that the company decided not to stop there.
Doogee X20L - a little bit of everything
If you chase for two hares, you will not catch a single one... It seems that the Chinese company Doogee is completely unaware of the existence of this proverb and tries with all possible ways to make smartphones suitable for any user. But is it possible for a small corporation to make such a product?
Ulefone F2 - a flagship for the poor?
The price of modern flagship smartphones of A-brands often reaches a mark of a thousand dollars. Of course, not everyone can afford such an acquisition. The Chinese company Ulefone perfectly understands this fact and decides to release the phone externally and internally repeating the best representatives of the market, but having a more reasonable cost. But miracles do not happen, and the economy still has to appear somewhere.
Uhans Note 4 - when the effort is not in vain
The Chinese company Uhans still can not boast of impressive popularity even in the territory of his homeland. However, the firm is making every effort to increase it. The latest products of the developer have a competitive design, excellent technical parameters and a modest price. The hero of today's review continues this pleasant tradition.
Xiaomi X1C - a bestseller with no shortcomings
There is nothing more logical in the world of smartphone production than the release of several models of phones with a common design, but different technical parameters. This allows both to increase the range of products offered and to save a lot in the development process. The hero of today's review is a simplified version of his "older brother" in the face of X1, but within the price segment, he, at least, looks no worse.
Xiaomi X1 - the best choice
The Chinese company Xiaomi has always been able to produce smartphones that combine an excellent technology, an eye-pleasing design and a democratic price. At present, there is a gap in the range of products of the corporation between the phones of the low (Redmi line) and the flagship (Mi6, Mi5S Plus) segments. And the hero of today's review must fill it. Will he cope with this task?
AGM X1 Mini - an ergonomic protection
The Chinese company AGM, specializing in IP68-smartphones, slowly captures an increasing part of the segment. The range of products is expanding, and now the phone, which does not fear water and dust and is characterized by compact dimensions, has become a reality. And on this the list of its merits does not end.
Cubot Magic - the leader in ergonomics
The Chinese company Cubot likes to surprise its fans. Even in the budget segment, it can create such smartphones that will attract the attention of people around in a fraction of a second. And the hero of today's review refers specifically to such "handsome" phones. But do they escort by the mind the model met on clothes?
HOMTOM HT50 - autonomy for free!
The Chinese company HomTom decided to please its fans with another inexpensive model. However, this time the company did not just create a nice gadget that is approximately equal to competitors in all respects, but a real treasure for lovers of long-playing gadgets. But is the battery the only one aspect that exceeds opponents of the hero of today's review?
Infocus Turbo 5 - forget about recharging
The Taiwanese corporation Foxconn wishes to take a stable position in the smartphone market. Given its incredible production capacity and the quality of products created, we can only rejoice at this desire. However, the hero of today's review provokes twofold feelings.
Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie - my expensive photographer
It seems that the company Asus finally decided to assign itself to the most prosperous leaders of the smartphone market. After all, despite the fact that in official ratings the company does not even belong to the top 20 most successful manufacturers of mobile electronics, the price of its products is steadily growing. But does the increased value fit the proposed functionality? And can the hero of the review surprise us with anything else except the front camera?
ZTE Nubia Z17 Mini - keeping the main advantages
The release of a sub-flagship smartphone is always connected with a great risk. The manufacturer should not only leave the characteristics of a more expensive model, but also make the phone much more affordable. And it seems that the Chinese company ZTE was able to find the perfect balance.
Meizu Pro 7 Plus - is there any limit to perfection?
The flagship smartphones of the Chinese company Meizu have always been admired by the audience. The combination of remarkable ergonomics, beautiful style and advanced technical characteristics allowed each new phone of the highest price range to become a bestseller. And the hero of today's review confirms this fact this year.
Leagoo KIICAA S8 Premium - causing only admiration
The Chinese company Leagoo decided to please its fans with a whole line of bezelless devices of various sizes and functions. And the hero of today's review should satisfy the needs of both connoisseurs of the beautiful and lovers of powerful multimedia devices. Will it be able to kill two birds with one stone?
Asus Pegasus 4A - a smartphone "without wings"
Assortment of products of the company Asus is broad, but at the same time it does not always correspond to modern realities. The Pegasus line, since its inception, including functional, long-playing phones, has significantly lagged behind competitors of this price segment. The entry of the hero of today's review in the market does not change this situation.
Leagoo S8 - say hello to plagiarism
Benchmarking in the economy means the process of analyzing products of competitors for further adaptation of their merits to the production. The Chinese company Leagoo definitely knows about this type of strategy organization, but the hero of today's review is too much like the last flagship of the Korean corporation Samsung. Is not the developer's actions a process of simple copying?
Bluboo S8 - perfection at a modest price?
The Chinese company Bluboo is very ambitious. Despite the fact that the level of its popularity is far not only from the A-brands of Europe and America, but even from China, it does not lose hope of reaching international leaders. And even creating a real competitor for the latest generation of Samsung Galaxy smartphones for it is not a difficult task! But is the developer really so good or is this high self-esteem preventing it from seeing the real picture of what is happening?
ZTE Blade A6 - budget and tasteful
The low price segment for the Chinese company ZTE has long been one of the most profitable. However, unnecessary attention to the expensive devices of the Nubia and AXON lines turned into a loss of a significant share of customers. To regain leadership became the most difficult task because of the presence in the value category of incredibly balanced products of such giants as Xiaomi, Meizu, Huawei and others. However, the hero of today's review shows that hopes for success have not yet left the producer.
Geotel G1 - autonomous and protected
The Chinese company Geotel in a short time was able to attract hundreds of thousands of buyers due to the low price of smartphones, and the combination of a pleasant style and excellent technical characteristics. Despite the fact that the manufacturer only plans to expand its range to the middle and high price segments, it is already trying to determine the demand for its products. And the hero of today's review is one of those.
ZUK Z3 Max - perfection beyond all limits
It seems that the rumors about the closing of the sub-brand of the Chinese company Lenovo remained fake, because the manufacturer of inexpensive, but very productive smartphones decided to present us a real surprise. What is so surprising about the hero of today's review?
Kingzone N7 - disguise for premium
The products of the Chinese company Kingzone always had a presentable appearance that surpasses that of smartphones for a similar price. However, the functional of models was, although not bad, but far from perfect. Especially this fact was noticeable in the low price segment of the developer's assortment. And the hero of today's review will try to correct this oversight.
Asus Zenfone Zoom S - a camera phone that does not forget about a style
Though the price of Asus products grew in the past year, its quality and balance became significantly better. This is especially noticeable for smartphones in the middle and high price segment. One glance is enough to fall in love with them once and for all. And the hero of today's review is not an exception.
Blackview MAX 1 - worthy of attention
The Chinese company continues to increase the assortment of its products at an accelerating pace. Now it's time to release a powerful, bezelless device that can compete on an equal footing with recognized leaders. And the hero of today's review really reminds David, ready to defeat the haughty Goliaths.
Leagoo T5 - and it's the flagship?!
The Chinese company Leagoo began to focus more and more on the low price segment of the smartphone market, which in the long term may negatively affect its reputation. Users love both inexpensive and premium devices, ready to offer incredible performance, stunning looks and remarkable autonomy. The new flagship device of the developer partially meets these requirements, but it would be more logical to include it in the average value category.
Zopo Speed X - when stagnation is seen even stronger
The once famous Chinese company Zopo is now actually fighting for its existence. From the merits of its products remained only an excellent design. However, it is extremely difficult to build success only on the exterior, if competitors have an attractive price, an excellent technical component. Can the hero of today's review be able to reverse the course of events?
HOMTOM HT37 Pro - musical and balanced
The Chinese company HomTom does not forget to expand its product range. Now it has replenished with one more inexpensive model intended for qualitative reproduction of music. But are its merits limited by this?
UMIDIGI C Note 2 - the next generation of budget smartphones
The Chinese company UMIDIGI makes an ambiguous impression. On the one hand, its products have reached the level of the best national brands by many parameters, on the other hand, the possible success of the phones is broken up by poorly optimized software. However, the developer tries to do everything necessary to increase sales. And the hero of today's review should be the first of a galaxy of newest bestsellers.
IMan X5 - protecting your budget
For a long time, protected smartphones were presented only in the middle and high price segments. Recently IP6X protection has been moved to the category of inexpensive smartphones. The first representatives of the "new type" did not differ much from the budget "dialers", but progress was growing at an increasing rate. And the hero of today's review is a clear proof of that.
Blackview A7 Pro - radical improvement
Budget smartphones, although undergone a significant leap in the field of performance and appearance over the past few years, but they are not always able to impress the modern whimsical user. The predecessor of the hero of today's review, for example, was characterized by modest technical characteristics, seriously worsening the final impression. Was the firm able to conduct competent work on errors?
Blackview R9 Lite - reasonable simplifications
Economy is one of the main conditions for potential success. And a good smartphone manufacturer should know this. The Chinese company Blackview perfectly understands this fact and tries to avoid unnecessary costs. You should not develop a new design, adjust production for it, if you can take advantage of an existing one. But is the hero of today's review a simple copy of his predecessor?
Coolpad Cool Play 6 - gradual improvement
The Chinese company Coolpad, although is poorly known outside of its homeland, but produces exceptionally good, competitive smartphones. Especially strongly fans of the company fell in love with the developer's collaboration with the LeEco corporation called Cool1. However, time does not stand still, and now the line has to be continued by the manufacturer independently.
Nomu S30 Mini - a smartphone, protected from falls and popularity?
IP68-smartphones, produced by the Chinese company Nomu, have become quite successful even beyond the territory of the motherland of developers. The price of the phones was competitive, as their technical component. However, such oddities as the lack of an alert indicator and a fingerprint scanner, did not benefit the gadgets representing the middle and even the higher price segments. Unfortunately, the above shortcomings did not leave the hero of today's review.
Doogee BL5000 - a strong long-liver
A significant part of products of the Chinese company Doogee is characterized by an excellent balance of a performance, a design and a modest price. However, every year the audience's requests are growing. And so, in the hero of today's review, the firm had to put also an excellent autonomy, flavored with increased durability.
UMIDIGI Z1 Pro - playing in advance
The Chinese company UMIDIGI is hardly a leader in the smartphone market. Even at the national level, it is not among the twenty of the most successful firms. There are several reasons for this. Many users still remember the exaggerated characteristics of the released phones, and the problem of poorly optimized software has remained to this day. Of course, the corporation does not want to put up with this state of affairs. And the hero of today's review should demonstrate the full potential of the developer on all fronts.
