Top 10 Best Smartphone Deals in 2021

Every month new phones come out, old ones and not very cheap, so TOPs are constantly changing. The next rating is relevant in 2021, possibly. It is purely subjective – consider this when choosing a smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S20 + – there is nothing better yet

This option is relevant if you have an infinite amount of money, and you just want to take the best smartphone at the moment. This is the last flagship from Samsung, introduced a couple of days ago. The device includes the latest mobile technology available in the world.

What good:

The best screen in the world, the only OLED with a frame scan of 120 Hz in FHD mode and 60 Hz in QHD mode. Got the highest marks from DisplayMate Studios
Gorilla Glass 6 everywhere, there are protection against water
7nm Exynos 990 processor – pulls everything, although Snapdragon 865 is better on paper (used in S20 + in the USA)
12 megapixel camera with stabilized optics and autofocus Dual Pixel + wide-angle and telephoto cameras, 3D ToF camera
Video Capture Function at 8K / 24 FPS, 4K / 60 FPS, Full HD / 240 FPS, HD / 960 FPS
Front camera autofocus
4500 mAh battery + fast, wireless and reverse charging
Stereo speakers, ultrasonic fingerprint scanner
Samsung also introduced the “shovel” S20 Utlra, but it is 20 thousand rubles more expensive and not much better. Its 100x ZOOM is banal marketing, so the Samsung S20 + is the best choice.

Huawei P30 Pro – the best cheaper camera phone

Huawei P30 Pro - the best cheaper camera phone

What good:

The best camera in the segment – with a resolution of 40 megapixels, optical stabilization and f / 1.6 aperture
Cool telephoto camera with a periscope lens providing 5x optical zoom
Excellent 20 megapixel wide-angle camera with autofocus
OLED screen with HDR10, however, not from Samsung
Excellent hardware Kirin 980
4200 mAh battery + 40 W fast charge, which gives 70% in 30 minutes + wireless and reverse charging
NFC, a fingerprint scanner under the screen, an acoustic resonator instead of a spoken speaker
It makes sense to take the Huawei P30 Pro if you are not chasing the latest hardware and technologies or if you were waiting for the TOP camera phone to fall in price by 30-40 percent.

Samsung Galaxy S10+

Samsung Galaxy S10+

Another flagship that has become much cheaper due to the release of S20 series phones. Back in January, it was sold for 66-67 thousand rubles, now the average price tag has dropped to 56 thousand, and some sellers offer the device for 42-44 thousand rubles. That is, like the Huawei P30 Pro, the Samsung S10 + belongs to the flagships that have fallen in price. They still remain relevant for the next two years for sure, or maybe even longer.

What good:

IP68 water resistant, Gorilla Glass 6 front and back
One of the best Amoled screens in the world, but, unlike S20 +, the frame scan here is standard – 60 Hz
8nm Exynos 9820 processor
Cool camera with dynamic aperture and optical stabilization + excellent telephoto and wide-angle cameras
Front-Panel Auto Focus
Stereo speakers, 3.5 mm jack and very chic sound from the headphones
4100 mAh battery + fast and wireless charging, reverse charging
Everything in this smartphone is great! Given the price drop, the Samsung S10 + is becoming one of the best options in its class. In many ways, it is even cooler than the Huawei P30 Pro, it’s just a “Chinese” who takes better pictures and, possibly, lasts longer on a single charge.

OnePlus 7 Pro

OnePlus 7 Pro

Pros:

Glass case
HDR10 OLED screen with 90 Hz refresh rate
Snapdragon 855
Sony IMX 586 camera with stabilization and laser autofocus + wide-angle camera with autofocus and telephoto with stabilization and the same laser autofocus
4000 mAh battery + 30 W fast charge
NFC + stereo speakers, UFS 3.0 fast memory
There is also a more advanced OnePlus 7T Pro on the market, but it is more expensive and not much better, so you can safely take OnePlus 7 Pro.

 

Realme X2 Pro

Realme X2 Pro

What good:

HDR10 OLED screen with 90 Hz refresh rate
Powerful hardware Snapdragon 855+
The new 64 megapixel camera + telephoto and wide-angle cameras, but without stabilization and autofocus on the front
Stereo speakers and 2 dedicated amplifiers, jack 3.5 mm
4000 mAh battery, 40 W fast charge, which gives 100% in 35 minutes
An excellent phone, while it is cheaper than the higher devices. The only thing is that the Realme brand does not yet deserve 100% confidence, although most of the manufacturer’s devices collect positive reviews.

Honor 20 Pro – best in mid-range cameras

Honor 20 Pro - best in mid-range cameras

At the start of sales, the phone cost 35 thousand rubles, now the price tag has dropped to 25 thousand, and this is the cheapest smartphone with the best camera. For this money, you will not find a phone with a more advanced camera, so feel free to take it if the quality of photography is a priority.

At the back is the popular 48MP Sony IMX 586 sensor with laser autofocus and optical stabilization, which produces chic shots. Inside is a powerful 7-nm Kirin 980 processor and a large 4000 mAh battery with 22.5 W fast charge, which gives 50% in 30 minutes.

There are several drawbacks: there is no headphone jack, stereo speakers, no wireless charging, the screen is IPS. Therefore, the Honor 20 Pro is recorded in the middle class, and here it is the best, and even the flagships are bypassed on cameras for much more money.

Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro
