Bye

manufacturers are flooding the market with newsmartphones, the old ones continue to get cheaper, and gradually an interesting company has gathered in the price category up to 5,000 hryvnia. This segment is firmly occupied by the “Chinese”, and we will tell you which models are worth paying attention to.

Best Choice: Honor 9 Lite / Huawei P Smart


</ img>

We do not accidentally combined Honor 9 Lite and Huawei PSmart - they are very similar in filling, and the main differences lie in the design. Both smartphones are equipped with a “high” 5.65-inch screen with an 18: 9 aspect ratio and a proprietary eight-core Kirin 659 processor, which is enough to run any applications, but with games from competitors in Snapdragon, it can be better. RAM 3 GB, 32 GB drive. The microSD card - only instead of the second sim card. The main camera and there and there at 13 + 2 megapixels, dual system allows you to make photos with a blurred background. For lovers of selfies, Honor 9 Lite with a 13 + 2 megapixel dual front-facing camera versus the “regular” 8-megapixel module of the P Smart is more suitable.

A 3000 mAh battery is enough for a fullday of work. Micro-USB port, no fast charging, no support for 5 GHz Wi-Fi. But smartphones received NFC. Honor 9 Lite in a case with a glass back panel costs4700 hryvnia. The Huawei P Smart has a metal back with plastic inserts on top and bottom, and the price has dropped again to5000 hryvnia. If you liked this particular model - take it until you have disassembled it.

Nokia 6.1 has dropped noticeably in price and can now be purchased for5000 hryvnia. For the money the buyer gets a gooda middling with a 5.5-inch Full HD-screen 16: 9 and a vigorous eight-core Snapdragon 630 processor, which copes even with demanding games (although in PUBG Mobile graphics settings you will have to lower it so that FPS does not subside). In this version, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory with the possibility of expansion by microSD cards. Hybrid slot

Nokia 6.1 cameras are average. The main Zeiss sensor with a 16-megapixel sensor and optics shoots well during the day, but in the evening and at night the detail drops. Front module - 8 MP. The 3000 mAh battery supports fast charging through the USB Type-C port and provides an average of one and a half days of battery life. With more active use of the smartphone can be "planted" in the evening.

Nokia 6.1 also supports NFC payments. The body is all-metal, but due to the overall angularity, the edges cut into the palm. This is the case when you should twirl the device in your hands before purchasing.

Protected alternative: Sigma mobile X-treme PQ52


</ img>

If you are just afraid to break the smartphone whenIn the fall, you can get by buying a shockproof case for a conventional device. Because in terms of characteristics, protected models are noticeably lagging behind. Even the more advanced Sigma mobile X-treme PQ52 is built on the weak quad-core MediaTek MT6737T chipset. He also received a 5-inch HD-screen, covered with Gorilla Glass 3. There are 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory plus a slot for microSD cards. The main camera is 13 megapixel, an 8 megapixel front-facing module.

The main and, in fact, the only trump card of the gadget isdust and water protection according to IP68 standard. Sigma mobile X-treme PQ52 can withstand immersion to a depth of 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. It doesn't weigh a whopping 178 grams, although the battery here isn't the biggest at 3,000 mAh. It will be enough for a day of work in normal mode, but no more. The smartphone will cost5000 hryvnia.

pros
Minuses

  • slim body
  • IP68 protection
  • budget processor
  • not "long-playing" model

Sigma mobile X-treme PQ52

Not afraid of water and dirt

Something in between weighty "bricks" andordinary smartphones. IP68 protection and a bumper-reinforced case are good, but the hardware is designed only for simple usage scenarios: calls, correspondence, videos and simple games.

Big screen: Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus


</ img>

At first, we did not plan to include Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus in the list due to the 3/32 GB version, which is gradually disappearing from sale. But there is also an older configuration with 4/64 GB of memory for5000 hryvnia. You can take whatever you find. The speed of gigabytes of "RAM" will not greatly affect, but the increased volume of the drive will not be superfluous - because of the hybrid slot when using two SIM-cards, you cannot insert a microSD either.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus meets elongated6-inch full HD display. Inside, a non-replaceable eight-core Snapdragon 625 chip is installed. This is not a gaming machine, but for Asphalt 8, the average graphics settings are enough, and there will be no problems with applications at all. The 12-megapixel camera on the back side is only one, but thanks to the portrait mode in the MIUI 10 shell, users can shoot portraits with programmatic blurring of the background. Front-facing 5 megapixel camera. The 4000 mAh battery will last for a day in active mode, although if you wish, you can “land” it by the end of the working day. There is an infrared port to control home appliances, NFC is not delivered. The body is metallic, with small plastic inserts on top and bottom.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus

Good in almost everything

One of the best inexpensive smartphones with a large screen diagonal. Gradually, it will push out the newer models of Xiaomi, but for now this has not happened, you need to use the moment.

Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite

If you have already touched Nokia 6.1, and you don’t like it, you should take a closer look at the more grippy Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite. It is also released under the Android One program and will receive regular system updates for two years. The only thing you have to sacrifice is NFC. Yes, the smartphone was created on the basis of the Chinese Redmi 6 Pro, but for the international model the company could push it harder and add support for contactless payments. A similar story with the older Xiaomi Mi A2, but we digress from the topic.

Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is equipped with 5.The 84-inch Full HD + display with an aspect ratio of 19: 9 and a notch on top - the “fringe” mod has not spared Xiaomi. The heart of the smartphone was the same SoC Snapdragon 625. Only the version with 3 GB of operational and 32 GB of built-in fit into the budget. Special thanks for the triple tray for two SIM-cards and microSD.

Rear camera dual, mainThe 12-megapixel module shows good results during the day. In the evening, the quality of photos drops; here Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is not far behind its competitors. An additional 5-megapixel sensor is designed to create a bokeh effect. The 5 MP front camera doesn't really stand out. The autonomy does not disappoint: the 4000 mAh battery provides an average of two days of battery life. There is no fast charging again. Issue price -5000 hryvnia.

pros
Minuses

  • good screen (if not embarrassed cutout)
  • good car
  • microSD slot
  • secondary design
  • no fast charge
  • no nfc

Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite

Potential bestseller

The smartphone is great in the hand, and with it you do not need to constantly monitor the battery level. If the company did not try to copy the design of the iPhone and added NFC, it would be great at all.

What have the Koreans: Samsung Galaxy J4 +


</ img>

In parallel with the sale of remnants of the Galaxy J3 (2017), a rising Korean star of the budget segment appeared in Ukrainian stores - Samsung Galaxy J4+ with a price tag of5000 hryvnia. This is a cute 6-inch smartphone.HD +, but inside it is not much different from any "Chinese" half the price. Not the newest quad-core Snapdragon 425, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of expandable internal memory - here Samsung’s crafted shell will be cramped. There is no fingerprint scanner either; instead, the simplest face recognition system with a 5 megapixel front-facing camera is used to unlock it. One thing is good - the manufacturer added an NFC chip.

The main 13 megapixel camera Samsung GalaxyJ4 + shoots well in good light, in the dark it is better not to even try. The back panel is not some kind of durable glass, but plastic that is easily scratching. The cover just does not hurt. The battery is 3300 mAh, due to the simple filling it will calmly last for a day and a half of work without recharging.

The bottom line is that we have a beautiful apparatus of the famousbrand for undemanding users who are not ready to buy Chinese smartphones. If finances allow, it is better to immediately look towards the older Samsung Galaxy J6+ for5700 hryvnia, which offers 3/32 GB of memory, a fingerprint scanner on the end and a double rear camera.

pros
Minuses

  • nice design
  • microSD slot
  • NFC
  • weak iron
  • little memory
  • plastic behind

Samsung Galaxy J4+

Korean compromise

The smartphone looks good in life and supports NFC, but the memory is unforgivable little. This is a model for calls, instant messengers, watching videos and undemanding games.
