Phone Reviews (page 20)
Meizu Tab - instructions for the preparation of the first pancake
Once the innovative Chinese company Meizu today plunged into the darkness of self-repeating. Monotonous technical characteristics of the production, inefficient on the background of competitors flagship devices provide the company a good chance to repeat the fate of THL, Jiayu and other once-popular brands that today are between life and death. But the manufacturer is not willing to put up with such sad capabilities and decides to try his hand in the tablet category. Especially because the next opponent in the face of Xiaomi hasn't serious achievements there.
Uhans U300 - attracting attention
Tired of boring and monotonous smartphones? The Chinese company Uhans experience the same feelings. However, the company has decided not to sit idly by. The hero of today's review, without exaggeration, can be called one of the most beautiful representatives of a middle-price segment of the "smart" phones market. But didn't the manufacturer forget about the other aspects of a potential bestseller?
Elephone H1 - perfection of a budget segment
Average world price of a smartphone is steadily falling down, and the reasons for this process are quite clear. Even for a very modest amount of money the user can now purchase a stylish, functional and ergonomically designed phone. However, the hero of the review is able to develop the current trend even more due to company's efforts, because it can be easily confused with a flagship.
Elephone P8 - the future is near
The Chinese company Elephone can not be attributed to the leaders of the national and especially the international smartphone market. Firm atempts to attract the audience with the help of the flagship devices release also can hardly be called successful. However, we learn from our mistakes and the hero of this review in terms of both design and performance fully meets the requirements of today's users.
VKworld Stone V3 Max - an assistant for all occasions
Over the past ten years smartphones have won a huge part of the audience of conventional phones. The reason for this is excellent functionality, better optimization, multi-tasking and a couple of dozens of important factors. However, today the machine can conquer the hearts of users and without any Snapdragon 820 processors and 21-megapixel cameras. The hero of this review proves this fact.
Elephone S7 Special Edition - productive beauty
The Chinese company Elephone has recently released several devices based on the modern and quite popular processor Mediatek MT6797. But people always want more. And if the appearance of its beautiful products the company decided not to change, but to provide the audience by even more incredible technical characteristics will be a good idea.
HOMTOM HT16 Pro - comfortable technologies
The smartphone should be comfortable. Hardly anyone can argue with this fact. However, the manufacturer can only get a hit when he creates a tech, ergonomic and beautiful machine. And the hero of today's review is that one.
HOMTOM HT27 - a style and nothing else?
A good design of the smartphone is one of the main indicators of its potential success. However, the developer should not forget about other qualities of a modern "smart" phone. The hero of this review can not be called tech and especially innovative, but with the appearance it hasn't any problems. But is it enough for the conquest of the audience?
Blackview P2 - the long-playing ideal
The Chinese company Blackview rapidly distributes its products in different price and functional smartphone market segments. Just yesterday the firm could boast only a couple of good low-cost devices, but today its range of phones includes almost the flagship phones. The hero of today's review will try to be a good competitor of Note series created by Xiaomi and Meizu. But what phone's parametres will attract a sophisticated audience?
Meizu X - a mysterious ideal
The Chinese company Meizu until recent time pleased tech-fans by interesting and often even innovative products. However, the current year has been for the firm a self-repeating period and gradually lagging behind its main competitor in the face of Xiaomi. The hero of this review is to bring the corporation on track. But is it not too late for such a return?
LeEco Cool S1 - commitment to excellence
Combining efforts Chinese Coolpad and LeEco companies definitely pleased a significant part of the audience of the smartphone market. Though they produced only one model, but it was fantastic! Cool1 just blew a mid-price segment, offering an incredible combination of excellent performance, a good design and excellent processability. The hero of today's review relies on the same sensation, only among the flagship devices.
AMIGOO X10 - miser pays twice
The Chinese company Amigoo though is not too well-known outside its own country, but is trying to gain momentum. Unfortunately, the range of the company does not always meet the needs of current users. The hero of today's review combines both exciting technological innovations and archaisms that even the most budget smartphones are not recommended to have.
Leagoo M8 - a new era of low-cost phones?
The Chinese company Leagoo struggles to create a budget smartphone that can compete in its functionality almost even with some flagships. A model called M5 came out quite interesting, but a significant part of its promises the developer did not keep, actually deceiving his fans in terms of characteristics of the gadget. It is hoped that the situation will not happen again with the hero of today's review.
Xiaomi Mi Mix Nano - a nano-tech smartphone
The Chinese company Xiaomi likes to experiment. If earlier the absence of not only the side, but also the upper bezels of the display was a trump card of only the Japanese company Sharp, today the manufacturer of China decided on such an interesting step. Staying in awe of manufacturability the audience appreciated the developer solution. Even the high price and a huge 6.4-inch diagonal of the screen didn't hold the phablet from becoming a bestseller. The hero of today's review is a smaller version of the hit, that is even offered with a little reduced cost. Is there even a single flaw in the novelty?
Oukitel U20 Plus - cameraphones to everyone!
For many people, smartphones have become the daily replacement of not only the player, e-book, but also the camera. Of course, obtained images are inferior to those of high-grade cameras, but for social networks or simply phone gallery it is not required more. The hero of today's review is ready to offer the excellent quality of photography, but its functionality is not limited by this parameter.
Xiaomi Meri - when you were not born yesterday
Developers of smartphones are often dependent on suppliers action. Unfortunately, this fact leads to negative consequences. The Chinese firm OnePlus felt on itself the complexity of the situation in which production stops due to missteps of other organization. Compatriots of the above company called Xiaomi try by all means to avoid such incidents. The result is the hero of this review, that was built on a Pine Cone processor of their own development.
ZUK Edge - out of limits
The subbrand of well-known Chinese company Lenovo does not differ by a great range of products. However, each company's smartphone turns out almost the best offer in the market for its price. Excellent Z2 line is relevant today, but the corporation should look in the future. Nowadays pressure from Xiaomi Mi5S, Oneplus 3T and other novelties is unusually high, and what will happen next? Probably, we will see if not the win of the hero of today's review, but the worthy competition
VKworld Stone V3 Plus - a "smart" assistant
The majority of people has already forgotten for what a cellphone was originally intended. The huge number of third-party features, unfortunately, caused a bit negative impact on the most important - providing a reliable reception of network. The Chinese company VKworld has decided to release an extremely inexpensive device that can find a GSM-signal, where 99% of smartphones won't even try to find it.
Vphone M3 - an immortal smartphone
Phones with dust and water protection made by IP68 standards are becoming smarter and more affordable. The reporting segment is rapidly catching up with its "defenseless classmates" and in terms of a design. The hero of this review, though does not claim to be the most productive and stylish IP68-phone in the world, but is able to surprise many people with its balance.
Huawei P10 - at the very bull's-eye
The Chinese company Huawei has long been famous for the design, manufacturability and quality of its products, comparable to those of the best A-brands. However, the company has to confirm its status every year. The hero of today's review should be a worthy competitor to the flagship products of Apple, Samsung, LG. But is not the producer taking too much?
Meizu M5 Note - a chance for competitors
Striving for progress is one of the best ways to achieve success. Of course, such attempts to change yourself are not always successful, but sooner or later they will lead to positive results. And in that moment, when rivals on the market at full speed rush forward in pursuit for new customers, the Chinese company Meizu decided to press on the brake. The hero of today's review is a gustatory variation of a phablet of a current company's line. However, maybe such a novelty will be enough to get a good profit?
Leagoo M5 Max - a budget maximalist
The Chinese company Leagoo is in an intermediate position between the best national brands (such as Xiaomi, ZTE, LeEco) and small, that still have not fully found their audience (HOMTOM, AMIGOO). The producer has chances of success, however, their implementation requires a high-quality, relevant product, that market needs, and competent marketing campaign. The hero of this review shows that with the first paragraph problems should not arise.
Elephone Z1 - following the progress
The Chinese company Elephone works not only on the design of the product, but also on its internal content. Ambitions of the company forced her to seek new ways to combat the development of Xiaomi, Meizu, Lenovo and other leaders of the national market. The hero of today's review is aimed at the mid-price segment, and in some parameters it is superior to some flagships. Will it be enough for the success of this novelty?
Ulefone Armor - a fearless smartphone
A significant part of the market of "smart phones" needs devices that don't fear demanding applications and complex pictures in low light, water, dust and drops from a great height. The hero of this review refers specifically to this layer of devices, while offering a decent autonomy and relatively low price. Is there a fly in this huge ointment?
THL T9 Plus - consolidation of the material
The crisis in the walls of THL company today is obvious to virtually everyone. Once a well-known brand, that had all chances to fight with Lenovo, Meizu and other national leaders, is now trying to survive on a budget segment. Moreover, these attempts are only partially successful. The hero of this review is making efforts to expand the company's range, but is this process progressive?
Kingzone S3 - style, grace and balance
The functional of modern flagship devices is often overkill for many users. Not all buyers like demanding games, not everyone requires laser autofocus or infrared. But parameters such as appearance, cost and autonomy are valued in the millions. The Chinese company Kingzone is aware of the above facts and manufactures a budget phone, capable to become a reliable mobile assistant for a long time.
Doogee Y6 Max 3D - a "volumetric" smartphone
Have you ever dreamed about the real movie theater in your pocket? Three-dimensional images without special glasses, a huge, bright and contrast display, powerful, high-quality speakers - is that not happiness? And the hero of this review is ready to give it to everyone.
UMI Plus E - one more plus for perfection
The Chinese company UMI rapidly brings the design of products to the ideal. It should be noted that this company does not forget about the progress in technical specifications, so important for a large part of its audience. The hero of today's review is an actual flagship of the corporation, aimed at meeting the needs of both gamers, photographers, lovers of smooth, high-speed web browsing, as well as ordinary users. Will the novelty successfully grasp the immensity?
Doogee T5S - an inexpensive pleasure
Not everyone can afford himself to buy the top smartphone for nearly a thousand of dollars. However, everybody wants to have a beautiful, functional and autonomous gadget. The hero of this review for incredibly democratic price is trying to add to this list the dust and water protection, good photographic opportunities and even much more. Isn't it a too heavy burden for the novelty?
Umi Diamond X - such an affordable beauty
The design of even the most low-cost smartphones today couses a pleasant, warm feeling. In terms of both the appearance and technical characteristics budget phones have caught up with recent flagships. The hero of today's review in its way tries to make this segment in the eyes of users even more attractive.
LeEco Le X850 - the limit of perfection
The Chinese company LeEco even after the release of the excellent and very democratic in terms of price flagship Pro 3 tends to surprise and please its fans. The hero of today's review is not only superior to its predecessor in almost all respects but also ready to compete on equal terms with the best representatives of the smartphone market, regardless of their value.
Doogee X9 Pro - functional beauty
An appearance of a smartphone is one of the most important components of its success. The combination of impeccable style and technology at affordable price gives rise to, at least, a potential bestseller. The hero of today's review claims to this title. But did everything come out perfectly?
Doogee Y6C - harmony in every detail
The Chinese company Doogee rapidly increases the range between value and quality of its products. A couple of years ago, company's smartphones were not well-known and did not differ by anything outstanding, but today even the most low-cost models of the manufacturer produce extremely positive impression. The hero of this review at a much lower price has to compete with popular phablets from Xiaomi and Meizu. However, isn't it taking on more than it can handle?
Xiaomi Redmi 4A - a perfection for the poor
The Chinese company Xiaomi distinguishes itself by its smartphones in all price ranges, with the exception of the most budget. The segment, which is a gold mine for dozens of companies, was not covered by the corporation. Understanding the possible loss of a good income forever, the developer decided to create a phone that combines advantages of "older brothers" and excellent functionality, despite the low cost.
Xiaomi Mi Mix - out of style frames
The idea of a frameless design of a smartphone, though is not original, but is relevant to the market audience, and was not yet realized. Perhaps, the Japanese Sharp Corner R was the closest to this aim. However, the Chinese company Xiaomi decided to show itself. The hero of this review is the flagship phablet of the company, demonstrating not only its current state, but also a future potential.
OnePlus 3T - invisible improvements
The Chinese company OnePlus is known for producing flagship smartphones, providing similar assembly quality and technical parameters as the A-brands, but having a modest price. Unfortunately, the last criterion is beginning to lose its relevance, because Xiaomi, ZUK, LeEco and other companies presented leaders of lines even with a lower value. A serious blow to the producer became a problem with the supply of AMOLED-displays, that stopped the release of a popular model. The hero of today's review is a kind of work on the bugs, the purpose of which is a very quick recovery of leading position in the segment of the developer.
Blackview BV8000 - an immortal phone
Many users wish to combine in the smartphone not just excellent assembly quality and the most advanced mobile technologies, but also the security of housing from any external influences. Unfortunately, rarely a device can offer that. The Chinese company Blackview has decided to rectify the situation. And in many terms it was a success.
Nomu S30 - almost successful pursuit for the ideal
The Chinese company Nomu specializing on the development of secure smartphones, was created only recently, however, due to solid expenses for advertising campaign it will be well-known soon even by a preschooler. S10 and S20 models came out quite good, but the producer decided not limite himself only by the low and middle price segments. The hero of today's review in terms of its value is close to flagships of the beginning of 2016 year, but whether it can compete with them?
Blackview BV7000 - a high-tech protection
IP68-smartphones have their own advantages and disadvantages in comparison with their "ordinary brothers." Resistance to dust, water and falls, unfortunately, is combined in them with not the most thoughtful design, compact dimensions and advanced technological features. The Chinese company Blackview has partly corrected the situation by BV6000 and BV6000s models, but time does not stand still. Market standards have changed, and so has come the turn of the hero of this review to prove that the protected phone can be perfect.
Nomu S20 - more beautiful, more expensive and simple
A more expensive model in the line of a smartphone manufacturer in most cases has not only an improved design, but also better technical specifications. Thus, the buyer clearly understands for what he is overpaying. The Chinese company Nomu has decided to outwit everyone. Including itself.
LeEco Le S3 - total fear of changes
The Chinese company LeEco in shortest time was able to gain popularity all around the world, including the CIS countries. Pleasant appearance of smartphones, affordable price for a great functional played a significant role in the success of the company, even if some of its decisions were controversial (for example, the absence of a separate headphone connector). Unfortunately, the corporation began to succumb to the general trend towards the producing similar models to fake increase of the range. The hero of this review is the first of the galaxy of clones.
Meizu M5 - when company's action is hard to understand
The Chinese company Meizu has always been one of the trendsetters in the domestic smartphone market. However, the current year was not very successful for it. This stems from the monotony of products and a simplification of it against the backdrop of not only competitors, but even predecessors. The hero of this review is unlikely to improve the situation of corporation affairs.
Nomu S10 - balanced protection
A segment of secure smartphones is growing rapidly. IP68-phones are catching up with their "normal friends" not only in terms of size and design, but also technically. The hero of today's review for a very small price is ready to offer such a level of functionality that will be envied by other models, even more expensive. What is so unusual in the novelty?
ZOPO Color F3 - Copy and Paste
What user does not approve a wide range of smartphones from a particular company? A variety of specifications, design findings and prices allow each person to find the phone that suits his own taste. However, sometimes companies produce an abundance of repetitive patterns, which in reality confuse the buyer. Unfortunately, this situation has affected in the current year the corporation Zopo.
Oukitel U11 Plus - perfect selfie and that's not all
How quickly the English word "Selfie" entered into our lives. Fashion for imprinting yourself on the background of attractions, celebrities or just close friends is growing rapidly. That is why a significant number of people are interested in photographic possibilities of a smartphone. The hero of this review is unlikely to disappoint this part of the audience.
UMI Diamond - diamonds almost for free
A success at such a changing smartphone market achieve only those companies, which are able to anticipate the future needs of the audience and constantly complement their products in accordance with them. The Chinese firm UMI is one of such manufacturers. Of course, not everything in its activity goes perfectly, but the corporation is developing, as well as a positive attitude towards it from users. The hero of today's review is a combination of the best features of a budget smartphone. But is it really perfect or not?
InFocus Epic1 - epic response to competitors
The Taiwanese company Foxconn is not only one of the largest and fastest growing firms, but it also assembles on its factories the best representatives of electronics corporations all around the world. Perhaps that is why its products under the brand InFocus though come out wonderful, but often are late in entering the market. Inability to concentrate on a particular type of activity, however, did not affect the final quality of the hero of today's review.
ZTE Nubia Z11 Mini S - striving for a better
The Chinese company ZTE started taking Samsung master classes of calling products. Now and five individual words do not seem something outstanding. However, they have to amaze also by assembly quality, performance and style. With these points the hero of this review has no problems. Almost.
Bluboo Edge - an incredible budget phone
One of the main trump cards of modern flagship smartphones is a curved glass of the display, that, in theory, can significantly increase the ergonomics of the unit. Of course, in reality, this feature brings more aesthetic pleasure than comfort, depriving the screen of bezels. However, we had not yet met it in low-cost smartphones. The hero of today's review resolved to correct the situation.
