Asus Zenfone 5Z - controversial flagship
The company Asus is able to create high-quality, balanced smartphones, as we have already seen many times. However, the failure models in its history are. To consolidate success in the international market after not selling the fourth generation of the Zenfon line, the developer needs to release a flagship phone that can compete with modern leaders in all respects. Unfortunately, the hero of today's review is not so close to the ideal, as we would like.
Huawei P20 Pro - crazy flagship
Chinese company Huawei does not take high self-esteem. If earlier the corporation offered technology flagship smartphones with a beautiful appearance, pleasing also with a reasonable price, today in terms of cost the most "cool" phone of the manufacturer is ready to argue with the products of Samsung and Apple. Will the fans of the company and the audience of the market appreciate this move?
UMiDIGI A1 - noise from nothing
The Chinese company Umidigi continues to stay in the gap between the producers of the first and second echelons. Problems with the software, lack of support for products released, and sometimes even deliberate distortion of technical characteristics do not allow the developer to become really popular. The hero of today's review is advertised as a new era of budget phones, but what does it really represent?
M-Horse Pure 3 - progress on the face
The Chinese company M-Horses is actually a newcomer to the market. However, for several years of activity the corporation managed to find dedicated fans who were satisfied with the appearance and functionality of the products. The firm also tries not to stop on the spot, providing more and more technologically advanced telephones. And the hero of today's review is ready to compete on an equal footing with the best representatives of the middle price segment.
Lenovo S5 - worthy competition?
Discarded beyond the leadership positions in the average price range, the Chinese company Lenovo presented several models at once, able in its opinion to struggle with the products of Xiaomi, Meizu and other popular brands today. And if the K520 causes mixed emotions, then the hero of today's review really looks like a potential bestseller.
ZTE Nubia N3 - expensive beauty
The affairs of the Chinese company ZTE in the average cost segment are not the best way. A huge number of competitors with aggressive pricing policy simply do not provide a chance for the organization's phones to find their place in the market. Attempts by the developer to correct the current situation do not lead to the desired result. On the example of the hero of today's review, you can understand the reasons for what happened.
Lenovo K520 - when the delay is too long
The Chinese company Lenovo slowly but surely turns into an outsider in the smartphone market. Balanced, competitive phones are coming out less and less, their release often occurs after the start of sales of similar models from opponents. The hero of today's review was no exception to this rule.
Vernee V3 - secure technology
The flagship IP68 smartphones are still quite rare. Unfortunately, protection from dust, moisture and falls adversely affects the appearance of the phone, because of which the manufacturer can hardly expect decent sales. The Chinese company Verni has tried to do everything possible to ensure that the strength and functionality of the novelties are combined with a nice looking design.
Vernee T3 - autonomy of a single
The initial success of the Chinese company Verni gave way to stagnation. The high potential of the output was ruined by such unpleasant things as the lack of support for a number of models, at times a high percentage of rejects, mediocre software optimization. However, instead of correcting the mistakes made, the firm produces all new products that now do not look so attractive against the background of opponents.
Blackview BV9500 - a smartphone that does not care

Oukitel U19 - rational acquisition

Elephone A4 Pro - available power
Buying a beautiful, productive smartphone almost always turns out to be a serious expense. However, the market does not do without several unique models, pleasing with design, manufacturability and at the same reasonable price. Thanks to the efforts of the Chinese company Elefon, we received another representative of such a rare category of really balanced phones.
HomTom HT70 is another long-liver
Excellent autonomy is one of the main indicators of a modern high-quality smartphone. Those days when charging the phone every day was considered the norm, now far behind. However, achieving more hours of active screen operation should not adversely affect ergonomics. The Chinese company Holtom realizes this fact, due to which he decided to release the smallest device with a battery of 10000mAh.
Ulefone T2 - plagiarism droplet
Designing a smartphone from scratch is a complex, costly process, both in terms of meeting customer needs and organizing production. Sometimes it is much easier to take a few elements of the exterior from another popular phone and organically combine them with their own work. So did the Chinese company Ulefon.
Doogee S50 Lite - awful outside, beautiful inside
To create an IP68 smartphone that meets all the requirements of the modern market is a difficult task, but feasible. Unfortunately, the Chinese company Doji sometimes lacks the experience to produce a potential bestseller, so the hero of today's review is not without small but unpleasant shortcomings. But will they affect the overall perception of the model?
Vernee M7 - beauty at an affordable price
The Chinese company Ligou also did not remain indifferent to the release of the magnificent Apple iPhone X.

Oukitel WP5000 - striving for balance
IP68-segment is becoming more popular among smartphone manufacturers.

KEECOO P11 Pro - faceless and boring

Doogee S60 Lite - perfect price reduction
Several years ago, the Chinese company Dodzhi established the release of secure smartphones.

Leagoo Power 5 - infinite balance
The number of incredibly autonomous smartphones on the market is increasing every day. However, most of them can not be called successful in terms of design and balance of technical characteristics. Chinese company Ligou also tried to create a phone that meets all the requirements of a modern audience and is able to compete for the title of best seller in the international arena.
Ulefone X - belated cloning
Inexpensive Chinese smartphones, differing similar to the popular latest Apple iPhone appearance, flooded the market. This fact can hardly be called bad, because most of these models are characterized not only by the affordable price, but also by good functionality, high build quality. The hero of today's review differs little from numerous opponents, except for the release date. This point, unfortunately, does not play into the hands of the novelty.
Vernee V2 - protected and dangerous for competitors!

Blackview P10000 - flagship without compromise
The Chinese company Blackview decided to please its fans and stand-alone devices that can make you leave the pawnbanks at home. However, if other performance puts autonomy in the first place, missing other aspects of the modern smartphone, the developer mentioned earlier did not forget about the appearance, manufacturability, as well as a good photographic component.
Blackview P6000 Plus - an unexpected ideal?
The Chinese company Blackview does not differ in the design and quality of its smartphones. Out of its conveyor line go as nice looking, technology phones that you really want to buy yourself, and pretty mediocre models, inferior to competitors in the price segment. Fortunately, the hero of today's review is much closer to the first category.
Blackview A20 - budget and tasteful!
Updating the line of inexpensive smartphones is very important for the Chinese company Blackview, which is famous for high-quality and affordable phones. However, in order to maintain the market share of the corporation, it is necessary to create products that meet modern requirements in terms of design and technical characteristics. Could the hero of today's review match the wishes of a whimsical audience?
Xiaomi Redmi 5 Note - a dream camera phone
The Chinese corporation Xiaomi has decided to change the range of its products of the low and middle cost segments significantly.

The hero of today's review went even further, providing for a democratic price the flagship functionality.
Meizu 15 Lite - the price goes away, but the beauty remains
Creating a simplified version of the flagship smartphone is a difficult and important task. To achieve good sales the developer should save the design features in the novelty, give it decent technical characteristics and substantially reduce the cost. But the corporation also shouldn't overwork, because there will be no causes to buy more expensive phones. It seems that the Meizu company has created an excellent representative of the middle price segment.
Ulefone Armor X - charming durability
Protected smartphones of the middle price segment are becoming more popular. This category of phones is not deprived of functionality and design, and the purse does not remain empty after a purchase. That's why a huge number of companies are trying to make similar IP68-devices and attract a part of the audience. The Chinese company Ulefone is not an exception.
ZTE Nubia Z19 - a fragile perfection
The flagship smartphone should be attractive, technologically advanced and long-playing. But a lot of developers forget about phone's capability of serving more than one year to its owner.

Huawei P20 Lite - a king of the segment
The Chinese corporation Huawei takes care about the quality of the product range.

And it seems that the hero of today's review is also waiting for international recognition.
Oneplus X2 - attracting lots of people
The past year was for the Chinese company Oneplus one of the most profitable. The incredible success of flagship models with the 5 and 5T indexes allowed the company to think about the conquest of the middle price segment.

The good autonomy of the smartphone is one of the main factors of its success. However, everything should be in moderation.

But is it necessary to do?
Doogee X53 - beautiful scrap-metal
The X55 model, released by the Chinese firm Doogee, did not become the only one stylized under the popular Apple iPhone X. The corporation decided to release an even more affordable smartphone, capable of being a competitive decision in the low cost category. Unfortunately, there were some compromises.
Doogee X55 - I am not the iPhone, just learning!
It seems that copying the design of the popular smartphone of the American corporation Apple has become very fashionable. Only the lazy manufacturer did not release a cheap version of the bestseller. Let's move to the Chinese company Doogee that isn't an exception. Has the firm managed to create a beautiful and inexpensive analogue of the international hit?

Elephone U2 - conveyor in business!
"The quantity gives birth to quality" - that's what the Chinese Elephone firm supposes, representing all the new flagship gadgets that formed a whole line with the U index in a short time.

Meiigoo Mate 10 - a piece of plagiarism
One of the company's success indicators is the abundance of copies of its most popular products on the market. For several years the Chinese corporation Huawei also was copied by its compatriots.
