Vernee V2 Pro - imperfect ideal
A modern smartphone has long ceased to be just a means of communication.

Let the developer is still far from record sales of Apple and Samsung, and in the CIS countries it is notoriously weak, he really tries to create competitive phones that are not inferior to the best representatives of price segments. The hero of today's review called V2 Pro is ready to offer IP68-protection, good technical characteristics, a dual camera, a capacious battery and much more for a relatively small amount of money.

And the hero of this review proves this fact.
Oukitel X - the stream of clones does not end
The last flagship smartphone of the American company Apple came out more than half a year ago, but its success still does not give rest to other developers.

Meizu M8 - cheaper and more beautiful!
The Chinese company Meise has begun to develop a line of its most affordable smartphones.

Coolpad Cool2 - Hello, degradation!
Bestseller Cool1, created by the efforts of Chinese corporations Kulpad and LeEko, is deservedly recognized by critics and the audience of the market as one of the best budget smartphones.

The continuation of the model, unfortunately, lost the listed advantages of the predecessor.
HomTom S55 - beautiful but ordinary
The Chinese company HomTom has for quite a long time been producing quite good, but far from being the most outstanding smartphones in terms of cost and technical characteristics. Its models often lack originality and any significant competitive advantage, distinguishing products against the background of a huge number of competitors. Unfortunately, the hero of this review does not change the situation

However, if a significant number of developers despaired of releasing a worthy competitor to a bestseller, the company Asus decided not to give up and create an even more impressive phone.
