Optimal choice: Redmi Note 7

Xiaomi again turned out the best in terms ofprice / quality average budget smartphone. Redmi Note 7 offers a powerful “iron”, bypasses its competitors in the quality of shooting and looks more expensive than its price. The heart of the device was the eight-core Snapdragon 660 processor, whose performance is enough for any games and applications. Although the MIUI developers still need to work on the stability of the system - on the first firmware there were problems with the Pro-mode of the camera and a couple of minor points. The 6.3-inch Full HD + screen with an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9 has replaced the “mono-brow” with a neater, drop-like cutout. On sale are models with 3/4 GB of RAM and 32/64/128 GB of internal memory. The best option is 4/64 GB. MicroSD hybrid slot, and if you need more memory when using two SIM-cards, you will have to spend money on an older version with 4/128 GB of memory. She also fits into our budget.

There is a double camera at the back with the main module.48 megapixels and f / 1.8 optics. In most cases, it works in 12 MP mode, when four pixels are combined into one, and there is no noticeable difference in detail between it and full resolution (at least for now). The second 5-megapixel sensor is needed to blur the background in portrait mode. In general, Redmi Note 7 makes great shots both during the day and in low light. And you can also download the unofficial Google Camera application port with the cool Night Sight night mode. The front 13-megapixel camera is also good, plus there is a function to unlock the smartphone in the face.

Glass Gorilla Glass 5 covers and front, andthe back. The frame of the case is plastic, although it feels like metal. The 4000 mAh battery provides a day and a half of active use. Quick Charge 4 is supported through the USB Type-C port, but it comes with a standard 5V / 2A power supply. In the box for Redmi Note 7 put a simple silicone case. It does not close the strongly bulging camera module, but the Chinese stores have already stamped a bunch of accessories with full backrest protection.

At the top of the smartphone - 3.5mm audio jack and infrared for home appliances control. Xiaomi refuses to add an NFC-module to European devices, and for someone it is enough to refuse to buy a otherwise very good smartphone. A choice of three colors: boring black, blue with a gradient and red-violet.

Basic Redmi Note 7 at 3/32 GB rated in 5500 hryvnia, but it is better to take immediately the 4/64 GB version for 6000 hryvnia. Model 4/128 GB will cost 7000 hryvnia.

Alternative: Samsung Galaxy M20

Aggressive expansion of Chinese smartphonesforced Samsung to reconsider its approach to creating state employees. As a result, the Samsung Galaxy M20 appeared - a very curious copy with a powerful 5000 mAh battery. Almost the entire frontal part of the device is occupied by an elongated 6.3-inch PLS-display (analogue of IPS) with a resolution of 2340 × 1080 pixels and a droplet-top at the top. Inside it uses a 14-nanometer eight-core Exynos 7904 processor developed by the company. It is quite smart, but in demanding games you will have to limit the average graphics settings. Memory on board decently - 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of built-in. You can insert a memory card, slots for microSD and two nano-SIM separate.

Rear camera double. The main 13 megapixel module with f / 1.9 optics makes good photos in good light, but some competitors shoot better. The second 5-megapixel “width” of the viewing angle is 120 degrees, for a good result you need a lot of light. The front camera is 8 MP average, it can be used to unlock. The Galaxy M20 has a software background blur; it works only on photos with people's faces.

The case of the Samsung Galaxy M20 is made of glossyplastic that collects prints and scratches. It is better to hide the smartphone in a case with which it will be easier to find the fingerprint scanner (it is almost not recessed and does not stand out tactilely). On one charge, the M20 works one and a half to two days with active use. The package includes fast charging capacity of 15 W, USB Type-C port. There is an NFC chip for contactless payment. Forgot only add support for Wi-Fi 5 GHz. Korean state employee will cost 6200 hryvnia.

Another interesting smartphone from the “goldenmid »Honor 8X offers a large 6.5-inch display with an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9 and a resolution of 2340 × 1080 pixels. Inside, an eight-core Kirin 710 processor developed by Huawei is used. Productivity is enough for most games, but sometimes you have to lower graphics settings for smoother gameplay. But PUBG Mobile goes almost at maximum speeds - this is one of the few projects with support for GPU Turbo acceleration technology. The device 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory with the possibility of expansion. The microSD slot is separate, you do not have to give up the second SIM card.

The main camera of the Honor 8X is double: A 20-megapixel f / 1.8 optics module is paired with a 2-megapixel module to collect depth information. On the finished image, you can change the focus point and blur the background. Artificial intelligence most often simply unscrews the saturation of colors. Someone even more like it. Prefer a more natural picture - just turn off AI. During the day, the picture quality is good. For night shooting, a special mode is provided when the smartphone needs to be delayed for a few seconds in one position. The front 16-megapixel camera is also quite a nothing.

The battery capacity of 3750 mAh provides bothat least a day of battery life. With not very active use, the smartphone will easily last 2 days. Charging through the microUSB port, although it is time to switch to USB Type-C. But the 3.5 mm jack is in place. In stock NFC for contactless payments. The frame of the case is metal, and the rear glass panel plays great in the light. But we must warn: Honor 8X has turned out quite slippery. Worth it 6000 hryvnia.

When moisture protection alone is not enough, and needrobust smartphone with increased resistance to falls, you should look at the Sigma mobile X-treme PQ53. The IP68 standard is also declared here - the hull withstands a 30-minute dive to a depth of 1.5 meters. The plastic case with rubber-coated ends withstands shocks better, and the 5.7-inch HD screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. Budget hardware: a quad-core MediaTek MT6739 at 1.5 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, and an integrated 16 GB with expandable capability. Both 8 megapixel cameras and shoot so-so.

With a battery capacity of 5000 mAh smartphonewill last two or three days without a power outlet. For charging, use the USB Type-C port. There is a fingerprint scanner and even an NFC chip to pay for purchases, but the manufacturer in vain removed the 3.5-mm headphone jack. At the start, the price was 6100 hryvnia, but over time it is up to 4900 hryvnia.

People's long-liver: Asus ZenFone Max Pro (M1)

A good camera in a smartphone is always a plus. But if you rarely take pictures and put first-time battery life, the Asus ZenFone Max Pro (M1) with a 5000 mAh battery fits best. The smartphone is equipped with a 6-inch Full HD-screen with an 18: 9 aspect ratio, and the eight-core Snapdragon 636 chipset is responsible for speed, which draws even demanding games like PUBG Mobile and Tanks on medium graphics settings. Depending on the modification, the amount of RAM is 3 or 4 gigabytes, and the drive - from 32 to 128 gigabytes. Now we need to take the older version of 4/128 GB, in some places it fell to 6000 hryvnia. The device has a separate slot for microSD cards and two SIM cards.

13 + 5 megapixel primary dual cameraremoves worse than its main competitors. Otherwise, it is a good device on the "pure" Android 8.1 Oreo. The front 8-megapixel camera supports unlocking in the face. There is a fingerprint scanner. The case back is metallic. The design is not the most original, but with a powerful battery you can forget about charging for a few days. I did not forget about the manufacturer and NFC.

Always new Android: Nokia 6.1

The top version of last season’s hit of Nokia 6.1 can be picked up today. 5555 hryvnia. Mighty machine with 5.The 5-inch Full HD-screen of the classic 16: 9 format is equipped with a Snapdragon 630 core processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory that can be expanded with microSD cards, but due to the hybrid slot you will have to sacrifice the second SIM card.

The cameras in the Nokia 6.1 "average". On the main 16-megapixel module with Zeiss optics, good shots are obtained during the daytime, and in case of insufficient lighting, the picture becomes noisy, and the detailing drops. Yes, you can experiment with the amateur ports of the Google Camera application, only the stability of their work is lame. The front camera on 8 megapixels supports unlocking the face (fingerprint scanner is still more reliable). The device is released on the program Android One and is guaranteed to receive an update to Android Q after the official release of the system.

Despite the modest capacity by today's standards3000 mAh battery, in normal use mode, the smartphone easily lives a day and a half. Fast charging via USB Type-C port is also supported. The all-metal case looks reliable, one problem - the edges cut into the palm a little. The smartphone supports Wi-Fi 5 GHz, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC.
