Phone Reviews (page 9)
Lenovo K320t - a continuous compromise
Timid attempts of the Chinese company Lenovo to regain its former positions in the low and middle price ranges of the smartphone market cause double feelings. On the one hand, we want to see something as interesting as the A830, S650, S850 models, which pleased with their excellent appearance and impeccable balance of technical characteristics. On the other hand, the backlog of competitors over the past few years has become immense. Unfortunately, the hero of today's review is unlikely to be a phone, about the purchase of which millions of people are dreaming.
Oppo R13 - who do I look like?
The Chinese company Oppo is one of the leaders in smartphone sales in China. The quality and functionality of the company's products, backed up by a magnificent design, atoned for its inflated price. However, the masters also sometimes have, if not failures, then strangeness. The hero of today's review can be attributed to the latter.
Xiaomi Mi7 Plus - the dream phablet?
The Chinese company Xiaomi held the current year more than successfully. Tens of millions of smartphones sold, strengthening positions in India and the CIS countries are excellent achievements for the corporation. However, there were enough controversial points, which include peculiar changes in the line of Redmi and not lacking disadvantages Mi6 flagship. It's never too late to correct the mistakes, but the hero of today's review is still far from ideal, like his predecessor.
Leagoo S9 - a real bezelless phone
The desire of the Chinese company Leagoo to catch up with the leaders of the smart telephones market should be praised. Expansion of the range of products is rational in all segments, and the originality, the relevance of phones are enough. The hero of today's review, for example, has every chance to become the first truly bezelless device with a screen sides ratio of 18:9.
Oukitel K10 - crazy autonomy!
The Chinese Oukitel company continues to surprise its fans. K-series of smartphones from the beginning was characterized by an impressive battery life, but the modern market audience wants also an excellent design and high performance from the long-playing phones. Making every effort to meet the needs of users, the corporation has created a truly brilliant product.
Vernee X1 - the most functional powerbank in the world
Flagship smartphones are amazing with their impressive design, great performance and other nice things. However, in most cases, the manufacturers forget about another important aspect, which is called an autonomy. Because of it the user has to charge the high-tech phone almost several times a day. But these actions won't be necessary with the hero of today's review.
EL Mix 2 - strength test
The current year has become really significant for the segment of protected smartphones. The category of phones, which for a long time remained popular only in narrow circles of users, was overgrown with a large number of fans. The reason for this is a reduction in the overall dimensions of the devices, and an improvement in their functionality and overall manufacturability. The hero of today's review should demonstrate all the attractiveness of modern IP68-phones.
Doogee J1 - beauty in simplicity
"An attractive smartphone does not have to be expensive" - this is the opinion of the Chinese company Doogee. Specializing mainly on budget phones, the company was able to gain experience in their development, so that the products combine both a pleasant appearance and impressive functionality. The hero of today's review was no exception to the rules and for claiming to the title of a bestseller he lacks only a couple of things.
Leagoo M9 - the flagship outside, the budget phone inside
The low price segment remains one of the most profitable for smartphone manufacturers to this day. A significant part of users are not ready to spend extra money on unnecessary additional functionality. In addition, low-cost phones are getting better every day, both in terms of design and performance. But how are things going with the strength, autonomy and other aspects of a modern mobile assistant for small amount of money? The hero of today's review will answer this question.
Elephone U Pro - a second wheel is extra?
The Chinese company Elephone decided to please its fans with the release of just a couple of flagships. However, such a decision is reasonable only when the market is thoroughly studied and several niches are identified, for which different novelties will be aimed. Unfortunately, there are not many differences in the direction of top smartphones.
Oukitel K6 - a long-playing grace
The Chinese company Oukitel does not stop to develop the K-series of long-lasting smartphones, bringing its technical level and design to the requirements of the modern market. And if the K3 model was more a testing ground for determining the audience's reaction, the hero of today's review is a potential bestseller, fully working out every dollar requested for it.
Meizu 15 Plus - an impeccable phablet?
The product range of the Chinese company Meizu has been replenished with a technological smartphone for fans of large screens. Realizing the shortcomings of the Pro 7 line, the corporation was able to completely eliminate them and create a phone, with a relatively affordable price, advanced technical and other characteristics. Wasn't there a fly in the ointment?
Meizu 15 - a worthy gift to fans
The Chinese company Meizu reached 15 years old. Over a relatively short period of time, the company from an ordinary MP3 player manufacturer has become a thriving transnational corporation, delighting with smart phones people all around the world. And the developer decided to mark his anniversary with the release of a pair of excellent products, which guarantee a genuine delight to the buyer. The hero of today's review is the one of such models.
Meizu M6S - changes dictated by the market
The Chinese company Meizu the last couple of years, lived on the principle "that'll do". This fact is especially noticeable in the range of models of the middle price segment. The lines of smartphones M3 and M5 were practically the same, and some representatives of the sixth generation of the telephones of the corporation received old technical characteristics. However, the decline in sales, criticism from the audience and the successful actions of rivals prompted the manufacturer to first release of an interesting M6 Note, and now he is the hero of today's review.
Elephone C9 - the sale of components?
Developing a smartphone is complicated and expensive. Unfortunately, not all efforts of the developer justify themselves. A lot of the released phones do not become popular, and the production of other models is frozen for an indefinite period. Warehouses are overflowed with various components of vehicles, and they definitely need to be used. And the hero of today's review does it extremely effectively.
Elephone A4 - the best among equal
Expansion of the assortment of the budget A-line phones of the Chinese company Elephone passes swiftly. Although all the models released can not be called flawless, the quantity inevitably grows into quality. This "qualitative" smartphone became the hero of today's review.
Elephone A3 - swarm of flies in the ointment
The Chinese company Elephone is able to create excellent in almost all the parameters smartphones with annoying omissions on a small number of indicators. Not fully developed software, unbalanced technical characteristics and other factors caused the poor success of the company's products. The hero of today's review also has a modest chance of international recognition.
Elephone A2 - hidden disappointment
The release of budget smartphones in the modern realities of the market has turned for developers into an exciting game, the main purpose of which is the "noble deception" of the buyer. Under the stylish design, almost identical to some flagship phones, is presented quite modest in terms of technology product. Unfortunately, the Chinese company Elephone decided to win in the competition described above, instead of changing the rules in it.
Elephone S8 Pro - premium for people
The smartphone market is undergoing major changes. New players, fashion trends, a decrease in the average price of sold phones and many other factors affect buyers, retailers and manufacturers, who often have to sacrifice huge sums of money to forecast users' needs. And it seems that the Chinese company Elephone is able to make the right calculations.
Elephone P8 Max - maximum balance
The Chinese company Elephone decided to seriously expand the range of its smartphones. In the opinion of the firm, the medium-high price segment of the market needs a beautiful, productive phablet, not devoid of good autonomy. And the hero of today's review has really become such an apparatus. But will a whimsical audience be satisfied?
Xiaomi R1 - a long-awaited surprise
It is hard not to admire with the Chinese company Xiaomi. Each of its products has, at a minimum, a competitive price, a pleasant design and good technical characteristics. However, in most cases, each novelty produced by the company significantly exceeds analogues in the price segment. And the hero of today's review was no exception. In addition, the audience has long waited for the corporation available bezelless phone.
Meiigoo Note 8 - all as adults do
The Chinese company Meiigoo refers to the newcomers of the smartphone market. However, even now the assortment of its products, which mainly belongs to the middle price segment, causes positive emotions. And the reviewed today hero is trying to multiply the achievement of previous models, bringing the company's phones to a new level of style and functionality.
EL S70 - grace of the IP68-segment
The Chinese company EL continues to expand the range of manufactured smartphones. However, unlike most competitors, the firm produces expansions rationally and organically. And the hero of today's review is able to boast not only of excellent technical characteristics and flawless design, but also of incredibly compact dimensions for IP6X-category. Are these not indicators of the future hit?
EL Mix - the beauty, not deprived of durability
Not the most famous, but no less ambitious Chinese company EL, specializing in the release of secure smartphones, has made significant progress in the last year in terms of functionality and design of the products. And the reviewed hero is ready to boast of brilliant technical characteristics and a beautiful appearance, surpassing those of most opponents.
Meizu Pro X - belated response
The Chinese company Meizu for a long time tried to keep up with the latest trends in the smartphone market. However, attempts to find its own style and additional competitive advantages only reduced the profits of the corporation. And now the company will have to competently copy the "bezelless" design of competitors, doing it carefully and efficiently.
Vernee V1 - perfection in a protected housing?
The assortment of the Chinese company Vernee is difficult to call broad. And if the budget of the corporation currently does not allow issuing a flagship smartphone that can compete with the market leaders, then the solution has to be found in another field. This was the IP68-segment.
Doogee Mix 3 - the road to the unexplored
The Chinese company Doogee managed to find not only a large number of fans, but also a significant cash from sales of smartphones. And now an important step for it is to change the associations, connected with the product and brand. The hero of today's review will be able to help the audience to depart from the vision of the corporation as a manufacturer of inexpensive, not the most technologically advanced phones.
Kenxinda S9 - a big step forward
The Chinese company Kenxinda is little known even in its homeland. However, a small budget and the lack of a broad marketing campaign does not stop developers on the way to conquering the smartphone market. And if previously the main segment of the company's products were protected phones, now the manufacturer is trying to produce an excellent budget device with an impressive design and incredible technical characteristics.
Elephone P8 Pro - maximum attractiveness, minimum originality
The Chinese company Elephone is in a difficult situation. The firm has found the audience in China and abroad, but at the same time the corporation is considerably behind in sales from the market leaders and can not offer a product that can really become popular. The hero of today's review is good in all aspects, but he is not destined to achieve the title of hit. And there are several reasons for this.
Ulefone Power 3 - a perfect phablet?
Mobile devices are becoming more productive every year, more functional, more compact. If a few years ago a really impressive smartphone could be presented only by the largest manufacturers, today the number of companies that delight their fans with excellent products has significantly increased. And the hero of today's review, despite the lack of A-brand status of its developer, is a clear demonstration of the full potential of modern phones.
Uhans K5000 - sturdy beauty!
The Chinese company Uhans can not get into A brands. Problems with software proficiency, small budget marketing campaign, controversial appearance of some models do not give the company the opportunity to become really popular. However, the company does not despair and pleases its fans with new smartphones, definitely worth of attention.
Allcall Madrid - a beautiful "dummy"
The Chinese company Allcall in a short time managed to become famous thanks to a powerful advertising campaign and interesting in terms of a design products. However, weak software optimization, the lack of individuality and the monotony of the line quickly led the company to lose the won part of the audience. And the hero of today's review is unlikely to return it.
iNew i9 - unexpectedly good?
The Chinese company iNew that time infrequently indulges us with novelties. However, the calm almost always appears before the storm. Unfortunately, the hero of today's review is difficult to call so, because some of its aspects are unlikely to suit the modern audience.
Leagoo T5c - stylish stagnation
Even the best-selling and highly valued by the critics and buyers smartphone model has the property of becoming obsolete. A competent modification of technical characteristics allows the manufacturer to extend the life of a phone for another couple of seasons with a small cash outlay. The Chinese company Leagoo decided to go the other way, unfortunately, not the best.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s - looking at competitors
The Chinese company Xiaomi knows how to create new trends in the market, as well as to copy and refine the ideas of opponents. The real sensation of the smartphone Apple iPhone X did not pass by the corporation from China, thanks to which the flagship design of the company underwent significant changes. But will only the metamorphoses in the appearance of the hero of today's review please the audience?
Nomu T18 - peculiar innovations
For the last ten years, smartphones have undergone major changes in terms of manufacturability. Bezelless displays, a significant increase in functionality, the appearance of cameras and other "chips" have already become familiar to the user. Manufacturers of phones perfectly understand the need to surprise the audience further by offering more and more interesting and unusual products. The Chinese corporation Nomu managed to do it, but will the hero of today's review impress the buyer from a positive or negative side?
Oukitel C8 4G - an improvement worthy of overpayment
The Chinese company Oukitel is becoming more and more famous thanks to the excellent smartphones that differ from the competitors' solutions by the best balance of technical characteristics and a design. The company's ambitions, however, do not allow it to stop there. And the hero of today's review may well become the new standard of a budget phone.
Xiaomi Redmi Y1 Lite - self-copying in full swing
The company's product range is often artificially expanded by monotonous, virtually identical models. Unfortunately, the Chinese firm Xiaomi also uses a similar trick. And the hero of today's review fully reveals this fact.
Xiaomi Redmi Y1 - a joy for "narcissus"
The presence of a qualitative front camera becomes one of the main factors in choosing a smartphone for a modern audience. And the Chinese company Xiaomi is well aware of this fact. The hero of today's review, however, pleases also with the overall balance of technical characteristics, an excellent design. Is this enough for international success?
Leagoo P1 Pro - a rational purchase
The Chinese company Leagoo is able to produce smart phones that are characterized by an amazing balance of technical characteristics at a fairly modest price. However, the modern audience requires from the developer's products also autonomy, beauty of a design. And it seems that the hero of today's review can organically combine all the above advantages.
Leagoo Z6 - a beautiful "ultrabudgetary" phone
A significant number of people use smartphones not "to the fullest." Calls, sending SMS messages, web-surfing are the main processes necessary for the vast majority of audience representatives. So why should we pay more for unnecessary functions? For this reason, the Chinese company Leagoo created the hero of today's review.
HOMTOM HT30 Pro - standard improvements
The Chinese company HomTom has established a certain scheme for creating smartphones of different price categories. First comes the model aimed at the most budgetary segment, then its supplemented and improved edition. That's what the hero of today's review became. But is not the buyer tired of the above algorithm?
Doopro P3 - invaluable autonomy
A subbrand of the Chinese company Doogee, specializing in the development of inexpensive but beautiful, balanced and extremely autonomous smartphones, has exceeded all expectations of its fans, because the hero of today's review is ready to brag of the above features at an incredibly modest price. But will the novelty become a hit outside of its homeland?
Doogee BL5000 Pro - unjustified hopes?
The Chinese company Doogee definitely knows how to create beautiful, high-quality phones, worthy of attention of the audience. However, the company has also some misses. For example, the release of an updated edition of the already successful smartphone of the developer does not always turn out to be relevant and interesting. Unfortunately, the hero of today's review refers to this category.
Ulefone Mix 2 - an affordable continuation of the line
The Chinese company Ulefone likes original solutions. If successors of achievement of a felicitous smartphone usually have more technological characteristics, then the hero of today's review has undergone serious simplifications and shift to the low-medium price segment. Will the developer benefit this step?
Doogee BL7000 Pro - a thimbleful of performance in the chalice of autonomy
Every year smart phones become more functional and long-playing. And this process causes possitive emotions, because the modern pace of life dictates the need for constant interaction with the mobile assistant. The hero of today's review is able even in the most emergency situations to guarantee up to ten hours of active screen time thanks to a 7060mAh battery. But how are things going with other components of a potentially successful product?
UMIDIGI Z2 - a really bezelles smartphone
Reducing bezels of phones, more rational use of the front panel has become a truly popular processes this year, because everyone wants to get a more beautiful and compact gadget. The Chinese company Umidigi has every chance to win world fame, giving, perhaps, the smallest 6.2-inch phablet in history.
Blackview S6 - following the fashion
The Chinese company Blackview is responsible for the creation of its products. Smartphones of the firm are not inferior to the solutions of competitors in either technical equipment, or an autonomy, or a design. And the hero of today's review can be easily used as an example of how attractive the low-price segment phone can be.
Uhans X8 - affordable beauty
The Chinese company Uhans for not the longest period of its existence managed to be noted by a number of interesting and very competitive smartphones. However, to achieve success, a firm needs not just to catch up, but also to get ahead of its nearest opponents. With such phones as the hero of today's review, the developer has every chance to increase popularity and profit.
Blackview BV10 - a small revolution
The Chinese company Blackview clearly does not want to lose the positions acquired in the market. In addition, in its long-term plans there is definitely entry to the society of top-rated manufacturers of smartphones, at least, in its homeland. And a lot of competitive updates of the product range directly testify to this desire.
