Meiigoo Mate 10 - a piece of plagiarism

Unfortunately, its relevance is not at the most advanced level.
Doogee X60L - an ordinary beauty

Cubot R11 - inexpensive pleasure
The Chinese developer Cubot occupies an intermediate position between the leaders of the national market and not really well-known firms, only in the race for a place under the sun.

And the hero of today's review looks like a reasonable step towards the implementation of the above concept.
KOOLNEE K1 Trio - a mysterious name
The young Chinese developer KOOLNEE continues to conquer the hearts of the audience of the smartphone market.

Protected smartphones are becoming more and more popular.

The reviewed hero is an excellent example of how a modern phone should be protected from dust, water and falls.
Bluboo S3 - endless power
A serious problem of many modern smartphones is their low autonomy. This factor significantly reduces the attractiveness of stylish, productive and technological products.

M-horse Pure 2 - a faceless update
Newcomers always have some problems and troubles at the beginning of their way to height.

Leagoo Z7 - the kingdom of compromises

Ulefone Mix S - a perfect purchase?
The expansion of the range of offered products is an important process for any firm.

That's exactly what the Chinese manufacturer Ulefone did, presenting us the reviewed hero.
Nomu V38 - the classics of IP68 segment
The novelties sheet of the Chinese company Nomu is not limited only to fancy smartphones. There is also a place for more usual, brutal protected phones that can become reliable assistants for men.

Nomu M8 - beauty isn't a cruel mistress
The Chinese firm called Nomu does not stop in its desire to make the protected smartphones segment more popular.

UMiDIGI S2 Lite - a full of grace budget phone
The Chinese company UMiDIGI tries to improve its production in all respects.

But it is easy to notice the positive trend of the firm's development with the naked eye. The hero of our review is an example of these improvements.
Ulefone Armor 2S - a simplification, that is worth of purchase
Not every person can afford himself an expensive flagship smartphone.

However, the Chinese company Ulefone used to reach its aims.
Doogee V - easily accessible innovations
The Chinese company Doogee although isn't a leader of the world and even the national market, but definitely it is moving forward to achieve this aim.

And the hero of today's review has every chance to be the first smartphone with a built-in fingerprint sensor.
Xiaomi Mi Note 4 - the return to previous positions
The Chinese company Xiaomi recently has expanded the range of flagship products significantly, complementing the already well-known Mi-line with a bezelless premium quality phablet Mix.

However, the hero of today's review will radically change the current situation.
HomTom S12 - the abode of style

Kingzone A3i - an outsider of the segment?
The Chinese company Kingzone finally went to the budget price category of the market. However, the corporation has not acquired its own face.

And the hero of today's review proves the lack of imagination of the manufacturer and the reduction of his ambitions.
Kingzone A5i - a stranger from the past
Nowadays a segment of budget smartphones is growing and developing at an accelerated pace. For a relatively small amount of cash, the buyer receives at his disposal an attractive, ergonomic gadget that contains most of the functions that a modern phone is able to provide. However, a quality of the functional is not always at a high level. And the hero of our today's review, unfortunately, proves the statement mentioned above.
Kingzone C5 - beauty and only
Each manufacturer is characterized by a number of peculiar features peculiar to it. This can be both advantages and disadvantages.

The hero of today's review does not correct the current situation.
Bluboo X - neat cloning
The Chinese company Blubo, having settled in the lower and middle price segments, rarely presents flagship models to its fans. However, the need to improve the image and increase sales forces the company to reconsider its views. And the hero of this review is ready to compete on equal terms with more eminent representatives of the value category. Unfortunately, not without annoying flaws.
UMiDIGI Ironman - an unsuccessful experiment?
The popularity of action cameras is decreasing every day. If for a couple of years millions of people dreamed of purchasing GoPro, today smartphones that are tightened up to take pictures easily replace it in most cases. This fact makes the decision of the Chinese manufacturer UMiDIGI to create a hybrid of a mobile phone and the above variety of cameras is very controversial.
Ulefone Mix 3 - fear of change
The development of a successful line of smartphones is a complex and multifaceted process.

Unfortunately, the Chinese company Ulefone has forgotten about this rule.
UMiDIGI Crystal 2 - a rational purchase
The Chinese company UMiDIGI is trying to produce products that meet all the needs of the market's audience.

Allcall Mix 2 - unhurried conquest of the market
The Chinese company Allcall does not long please users with its smartphones.

However, an ambitious developer decided to fundamentally correct the situation and released a technological flagship phone.
Huawei Honor 9 Lite - simplistic beauty
Creating a more accessible version of the flagship device is always a challenge. The manufacturer must preserve not only the best features of the original, but also make the gadget that has its own "face" and relevance of technical characteristics. The Chinese company Huawei tried to do everything possible to please its fans with a worthy model. It should be noted that it was a success in almost everything that was conceived.
Xiaomi Mi Max 3 - increase my hand, sir
The category of really big phablets has never been particularly popular. However, that part of the audience, who liked the bulky smartphones, remains loyal to their tastes. To these users the hero of today's review is targeted, endowed with a number of positive qualities.
Doogee S50 - a sturdy camera phone
The Chinese company Doogee is looking for new ways to expand the range of products to increase the coverage of a potential audience. An ergonomic, balanced IP68-smartphone, endowed with excellent photographic abilities and a democratic price, according to the firm, has every chance to become a bestseller. Is this right in reality?
Meizu M7 - affordable manufacturability
The popularity of the Chinese corporation Meizu increases every year, but this fact does not mean the success of the company in all price segments. Budget smartphones of the firm remained practically unchanged for several years, which negatively affected their demand. And the hero today's review bears in himself those changes that are necessary for the developer to gain the audience of foreign countries further.
Meizu M7 Note - a reasonable product
The Chinese firm Meizu is now in no hurry with the launch of new products and is closely watching the actions of competitors, analyzing them and finding mistakes. As a result, the hero of today's review should be the ideal phone of the middle price segment, the purchase of which will be a dream of millions. But is it possible to cope with such a task in reality?
Uhans i8 Pro - a powerful additive!
The Chinese company Uhans decided not to spend extra money to create a flagship smartphone from scratch. The recipe for cooking new items was simple: the firm increased the performance of a successful model and released it to the market with a higher price. But is this enough for excellent sales?
