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.
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
HDR10 OLED screen with 90 Hz refresh rate
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
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
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
From rating to rating, this phone remains in the TOP. At a low price tag, it offers a powerful 7nm Snapdragon 855 processor, an OLR screen with HDR and the flagship Sony IMX 586 camera, though with optics without stabilization. As for the photo, the Mi 9T Pro is worse than the Honor 20 Pro, but it is more powerful, and the OLED screen is a chip in this price class.
NFC, quick charge, infrared, a fingerprint scanner under the screen and a retractable front camera are included.
Not a single rating is bypassed without iPhones. If your whole digital life is tied to the infrastructure of Apple, it is best to take the iPhone 11, not the 11th Pro. The latter is more expensive and offers only an OLED screen with maximum contrast and an additional camera with telephoto optics. All this is not on the iPhone 11, and it is not needed either.
The smartphone is equipped with an excellent IPS-screen with high brightness and HD resolution, at which the user does not observe the “grain”. Protection from water, the most powerful “iron” at the beginning of 2020 is attached. Also on the iPhone 11 is a gorgeous 12 megapixel camera with stabilization + the ability to shoot high-quality video in 4K / 60 FPS on all cameras, including the front-end camera.
NFC, Face ID, water protection, wireless charging – all this is there. Well, this is iPhone, which means stable updates over 4-5 years and an exceptionally high build quality.
