Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S 6 / 128GB

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S 6 / 128GB

Many consumers feel that the Chinese are unable to endow their creations with advanced features. It seems that most smartphones Xiaomi have a basic display, limited memory and a weak processor. But in fact, there are many exceptions to the rule. One of them is the Mi Mix 2S. This smartphone will surprise some people not only with its specifications, but also with its appearance. The fact is that this is a so-called frameless smartphone. The 6-inch display used here takes up almost the entire area of ​​the front panel. The width of the bezel around the screen is minimized. Interestingly, what is happening on the display is controlled by the operating system Android 8.0. If you remember the competitors Xiaomi, then earlier we wrote about the best smartphones Meizu – and none of the devices received such a fresh version of the operating system!

The rest of the characteristics of the Mi Mix 2S are also good news. The device has 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of permanent memory. For some users, this volume may even seem excessive! As for the processor, it uses a top-end eight-core solution from Qualcomm, the clock frequency of which can reach an impressive 2.8 GHz. In a word, on such a smartphone you can run any applications and games, the system will not even think about lowering the level of graphics in the latter!

It should be noted that the frameless device is sold for 37-45 thousand rubles. Such an expensive gadget requires a high-quality camera. And she is here. 12-megapixel matrices are hidden under two lenses. In this case, one of the lenses has a different focal length. That is, the user has access to 2x optical zoom! Well, the wide-angle module is capable of boasting an f / 1.8 aperture and optical stabilization. With this smartphone, you can shoot not only gorgeous photos, but also 4K video (at 30 frames / s).

You can probably talk about Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S forever. This machine is equipped with a set of high-speed wireless modules. It includes two slots for SIM cards. The thickness of the device does not exceed 8.1 mm. Unlocking is also available here using a face scan. If you don't like this method, then no one bothers to use the fingerprint scanner. But let's stop at this, because our rating is dedicated not only to this smartphone! However, one cannot fail to mention the disadvantages of the device. Yes, they are here too! Basically, you can only complain about the display. It is made using IPS technology, while in this price segment you are expecting an energy efficient AMOLED panel. The screen resolution is 2160×1080 pixels. Honestly, with such a diagonal, you already want something more. The front camera should also be noted – it can boast only a 5-megapixel module, which also seems insufficient for such an expensive smartphone.

Advantages

  • Excellent bezel-less design;

  • The latest version of the operating system;

  • Very good dual camera;

  • There are Wi-Fi 802.11ac, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0 and LTE-A modules;

  • Extremely powerful processor built in;

  • There is a huge amount of memory;

  • Implemented support for fast charging;

  • There is a fingerprint scanner and face recognition.

disadvantages

  • Weak front camera;

  • The display resolution could be higher;

  • The price tag will seem inadequate to many fans of the brand;

  • Heavy weight (189 g).

Xiaomi Mi 6 128GB

Rating: 4.9

Xiaomi Mi 6 128GB

The flagship of the Chinese company, which exists in several versions. The most expensive version is with a ceramic body. We recommend paying attention to the usual option – you can buy it for 29-34 thousand rubles. If this amount seems too large to you, then pay attention to the amount of memory present here. There is 128GB of built-in storage for file storage – enough for movies, music, and lots of photos. Well, 6 GB of RAM is intended for running applications – this is also more than enough.

It should be noted that the smartphone is very compact. It has an IPS display with a diagonal of 5.15 inches and a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. There is also an event indicator light on the front panel. I am glad that this time the company Xiaomi decided not to save on the front camera – it has an 8-megapixel resolution, which is quite enough for shooting high-quality selfies. Of course, the rear camera is more advanced. It consists of two lenses, under which are 12-megapixel sensors. Such a camera can beautifully blur the background, imitating the operation of a SLR camera. Also, this module is capable of video recording with 4K-resolution, albeit with a reduced frequency (30 frames / s).

The Snapdragon 835 processor ensures perfect operation of the system. This eight-core chipset was considered the flagship of Qualcomm just a year ago. In a word, there is enough power to solve any problem! Also, one cannot fail to note the ideal set of wireless modules that is included in Xiaomi Mi 6. There is even Bluetooth 5.0, which many smartphone manufacturers seem to be unaware of. It is proposed to go to the Internet using a module that supports LTE-A of the 16th category. And even NFC is not forgotten here, so a smartphone can replace a bank card. In a word, this flagship is not in vain included in our rating – it has no significant shortcomings.

Advantages

  • High screen resolution for such a diagonal;

  • Nice dual camera;

  • Decent front camera

  • There are modules Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, NFC and LTE-A;

  • Built-in infrared transmitter;

  • A very powerful processor is used;

  • Built-in a huge amount of RAM and permanent memory;

  • There is a fingerprint sensor;

  • Fast charging supported.

disadvantages

  • Not everyone will like the cost;

  • Slippery body.

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 128GB

Rating: 4.8

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 128GB

Another smartphone in our ranking with 128 GB of internal memory. This capacity is enough for storing 4K video, which is able to shoot a 22-megapixel rear camera. It should be noted that this video is recorded at 30 frames per second. If you want to achieve more smoothness, then you have to reduce the resolution to Full HD. The front-facing camera is not the worst built-in here – its resolution is 8 megapixels.

The main feature of the device is its 5.7-inch display. The fact is that it was created using technology OLED. This is highly unusual for products Xiaomi. The buyer is waiting for bright colors, clearly visible even under sunlight, and low power consumption (especially after turning on some dark theme). The screen resolution is 1920×1080 pixels, which is quite acceptable for a price not exceeding 22 thousand rubles.

The smartphone cannot be called particularly fresh, it was announced back in the fall of 2016. That is why the smartphone is running Android 6.0 by default. Fortunately, the operating system can always be updated, and in terms of other characteristics, the device will definitely not disappoint. In particular, the buyer will definitely be pleased with the presence of LTE-A of the 12th category, an infrared transmitter, NFC and a powerful Snapdragon 821 processor. The large amount of memory also plays a plus for the device – you do not need to spend money on a microSD card. The manufacturer did not forget about the fingerprint scanner. In a word, this is a wonderful device that has not become a little outdated in a year and a half.

Advantages

  • Very good 22MP rear camera

  • Decent front camera

  • The battery capacity is 4070 mAh;

  • There is support for fast charging;

  • There is support for LTE;

  • Built-in NFC and infrared transmitter;

  • Very large amount of memory;

  • The processor is not weak;

  • The display is created using OLED – technology;

  • There is a fingerprint sensor.

disadvantages

  • The screen resolution could be higher.

Xiaomi Mi Note 3 6 / 128Gb

Rating: 4.8

Xiaomi Mi Note 3 6 / 128Gb

The continuation of the Mi Note line is almost perfect. The cost of a smartphone has almost not increased – in Russian online stores they ask for no more than 23 thousand rubles for the device. At the same time, some of the characteristics of the device have improved. For example, Android 7.1 is already used as the operating system here. The diagonal of the display has dropped to 5.5 inches, which made the device more compact. The resolution remained the same, and therefore the pixel density reached 401 PPI. Some disappointment is caused only by the fact that the screen was created using IPS technology, and not OLED – you should not expect low power consumption.

If the predecessor used a conventional camera, albeit with a very high resolution, here it is a double one. 12-megapixel matrixes are hidden under the lenses. This camera implementation allows the system to highlight the subject by blurring the background. Also, optical stabilization should please, thanks to which frames are blurred less often. If we talk about the front camera, then it has also changed – now it is a 16-megapixel module.

The smartphone is great for listening to music, as it is endowed with stereo speakers. It can be played online – for this purpose, LTE-A and Wi-Fi 802.11ac modules are used. It should be noted that this module Bluetooth 5.0 is still a rare guest in the products of competitors. The Chinese company has not forgotten about NFC – a chip that allows you to use a smartphone as a bank card.

The smartphone is powered by a 3500 mAh battery. As expected, it supports fast charging technology. The amount of memory here remains the same – however, this is an advantage, not a disadvantage. An eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 is used as a processor – this is not a top-end chipset, but it is impossible to blame it for the lack of power. Finally, there is also a fingerprint sensor.

Advantages

  • Two colors to choose from;

  • Very good dual cameras with optical stabilization;

  • Great front camera

  • Huge amount of memory;

  • Decent processor;

  • The battery supports fast charging;

  • There is a fingerprint sensor;

  • There are wireless modules Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, LTE-A and NFC;

  • There is an infrared transmitter.

disadvantages

  • There is no 3.5mm audio jack.

Xiaomi Mi 5S Plus 128GB

Rating: 4.7

Xiaomi Mi 5S Plus 128GB

Another smartphone from a Chinese company in our ranking, which has 128 GB of permanent memory. At the same time, the product received at its disposal a separate slot for a microSD memory card, as if someone would need it! Two SIM card slots look much more useful, as they will allow you to combine tariffs from different operators. This device feels great in the hand, not least due to the metal body. A fingerprint sensor is quickly found on the back wall, and there is also a dual camera. Interestingly, the resolution of both matrices has been brought up to 13 megapixels – in this regard, the device surpasses much more expensive counterparts, which are described above. There is no optical zoom here – the dual design is used solely to blur the background. Also, such a camera can shoot 4K video.

The bezel is home to a 5.7-inch IPS display with a resolution Full HD. The pixel density turned out to be quite high, albeit not a record one. With a device cost of 22-23 thousand rubles. hardly anyone would complain about such a parameter. A lone front camera lens can be found above the screen. Alas, this is the weakest component of this model – the simplest 4-megapixel sensor is hidden under the optics.

The processor is definitely not among the disadvantages of the device. It uses the quad-core Snapdragon 821, which was considered the flagship chipset a few years ago. Of course, under load, it can get quite hot. But how powerful it is! Nothing bad can be said about the battery, which has a capacity of 3800 mAh and support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology. As for wireless modules, the smartphone includes Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, LTE-A Cat.12 and NFC. Even the infrared transmitter has not been forgotten, which turns the device into an analogue of the remote control.

Advantages

  • There is a fingerprint scanner;

  • Capacious battery with fast charging support;

  • A large number of high-speed wireless modules;

  • Very good rear camera

  • Huge amount of memory;

  • Extremely powerful processor.

disadvantages

  • Not the best front camera

  • Strong heating under load.

Xiaomi Mi 6X 4 / 64GB

Rating: 4.7

Xiaomi Mi 6X 4 / 64GB

It's a rare case when a company Xiaomi has generous with at least five color options for the device. In particular, this is the only smartphone in our ranking that can even be painted pink! It is also the first, but not the last device that has an adequate price tag – about 17 thousand rubles. At the same time, according to some characteristics, the smartphone is not inferior to the models discussed above. For example, the operating system Android 8.0 is installed here, which is still a rarity. Also, everything is in order here with the IPS-display, which is 5.99 inches diagonal. Interestingly, the screen has an aspect ratio of 18: 9, as a result of which, instead of the traditional Full HD, the buyer is waiting for a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels.

Perhaps the main distinguishing feature of the device is its camera. Under the two lenses are sensors with a resolution of 12 and 20 megapixels. The focal length of the optics is different, so a 2x zoom is available to the user. Be sure it will come in handy! The wide-angle lens also boasts an f / 1.75 aperture, which indicates a high aperture. If you love taking selfies, then Xiaomi Mi 6X you will definitely love it! The fact is that this device has a 20-megapixel front camera!

The device will also delight with its wireless modules. Almost all of them are of the freshest standards. For example, Bluetooth 5.0 is used to connect a wireless headset or smartwatch. Well, to access the Internet, either LTE or Wi-Fi 802.11ac is used.

For the worse, the gadget differs from the models discussed above only in the processor and memory size. But who lacks the power of the eight-core Snapdragon 660? And 64 GB of permanent memory is also a lot, competitors' products are often unable to boast of this either.

Advantages

  • Large amount of memory;

  • Built-in powerful processor;

  • There is an FM radio;

  • The latest wireless modules are present;

  • There is a fingerprint scanner;

  • Excellent rear camera with optical zoom

  • Very good front-end;

  • The latest version of the operating system;

  • There is support for fast charging;

  • A large number of colors to choose from.

disadvantages

  • Battery capacity does not exceed 3010 mAh;

  • There is no NFC.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 6 / 64GB

Rating: 4.6

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 6 / 64GB

This smartphone is available in four color options – from black to sky blue. In fact Redmi Note 5 is one of the largest in our ranking, as it has a display on its bezel, the diagonal of which only slightly reaches 6 inches. The screen resolution is 2160×1080 pixels, which is a typical parameter for a device with a cost of no more than 17 thousand rubles. The display was created using IPS technology, so it is impossible to find fault with the viewing angles.

When designing this smartphone, the manufacturer tried to save money. In this regard, the dual camera used here is not too happy. Matrices with a resolution of 12 and 5 megapixels are placed under the lenses. There is no question of any optical zoom here. But the background blur is also not the best way – the system regularly makes mistakes in determining the boundaries of the shooting object. The aperture also cannot be called ideal – it is only opened up to f / 1.9. I am glad that at least the front camera is not so bad here – it has a 13-megapixel resolution.

What you can't find fault with is the set of wireless interfaces. Most of all, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 5.0 will come in handy. Someone will also use an infrared transmitter – it is needed to control a TV or speaker system. Only the lack of NFC is a little upsetting – we are already used to the fact that this chip often appears in products Xiaomi.

Everything is fine with a smartphone and with a processor. The Snapdragon 636 octa-core chipset is enough to solve absolutely any task, including running heavy games. It is unlikely that anyone will make claims to the amount of memory installed here. In a word, the Chinese have again got an excellent gadget, and even with an attractive price tag!

Advantages

  • There is a fingerprint sensor;

  • Very large amount of memory;

  • Extremely powerful processor;

  • Battery capacity increased to 4000 mAh;

  • Built-in high-speed wireless modules;

  • Great front camera

  • Four color options;

  • The latest version of the OS.

disadvantages

  • There is no NFC;

  • The weight of the smartphone reaches 181 g;

  • The rear camera is not perfect.

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 128GB

Rating: 4.5

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 128GB

Another smartphone in our ranking with a huge amount of internal memory. It is also by far the largest device – on its front panel there is a 6.44-inch screen. At the same time, the device is not expensive – they ask for it from 16 to 18 thousand rubles. Therefore, it is easy to guess that such a large display has a resolution Full HD. A very modest parameter with such a diagonal. Nevertheless, the output image cannot be called grainy, because the pixel density reaches an acceptable value of 342 PPI.

Even more, it seems, the manufacturer saved on cameras. This is felt most strongly on the front camera, which has a 5-megapixel resolution. Under the lens of the rear camera is a 12-megapixel sensor, which is illuminated by light through an f / 2.2 aperture. Interestingly, even such a camera is capable of 4K video recording.

As for the rest, it is quite difficult to make claims to the phablet. He received a Snapdragon 625 processor, consisting of eight cores. High-speed LTE-A and Wi-Fi 802.11ac modules are designed for Internet access. An infrared transmitter will allow you to control TVs without Smart TV functions. Well, the autonomous operation of this device is provided by a 5300 mAh battery, endowed with support for fast charging. It remains to add that Android 7.0 is used as the operating system here.

Advantages

  • Extremely powerful processor;

  • Huge amount of memory;

  • There is an FM radio;

  • Relatively good rear camera

  • High speed wireless modules are available;

  • Capacious battery complemented by support for fast charging;

  • Fingerprint scanner not forgotten.

disadvantages

  • The weight of the smartphone is 211 g;

  • Not the highest display resolution;

  • Modest front camera.

Xiaomi Redmi S2 4 / 64GB

Rating: 4.5

Xiaomi Redmi S2 4 / 64GB

Another smartphone with Android 8.1 on board in our rating. Perhaps this is one of the most inexpensive devices with this operating system – in Russia they ask for it from 13 to 16 thousand rubles. Of course, the Chinese company had to save money in its production. Because of this, the product received a modest 6-inch screen. It is made using IPS technology, so the viewing angles are maximum. But the resolution is no longer so happy – it is only 1440×720 pixels. If you regularly use expensive smartphones and tablets, you will definitely notice pixelization here. The flip side of this medal is the fact that the Snapdragon 625 processor does not have to strain in order to process a picture with this resolution. The eight-core chipset is enough for the eyes, the system literally flies! Also, the manufacturer did not have to build in a capacious battery here, since 3080 mAh is quite enough to provide a day of autonomous work. As a result, the weight of the device was 170 g, which is acceptable for such and such sizes.

Many potential buyers of Xiaomi Redmi S2 are interested in which camera is installed in it. Well, you shouldn't count on 4K video shooting – the maximum user can access the format Full HD with a frequency of 30 frames / s. The camera consists of two lenses, under which there are matrices with a resolution of 12 and 5 megapixels. The diaphragm is not open too wide, so certain problems may occur in the evening. Oddly enough, the front camera is much more pleasing. It has a 16-megapixel resolution, which allows you to take great selfies.

The savings are also noticeable in the set of wireless modules. The manufacturer ditched NFC and infrared. Yes, and Wi-Fi here is limited by the 802.11n standard, which will not suit owners of brand new routers. Fortunately, the savings are not reflected in memory – the user is waiting for 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of ROM. If you need additional space to store videos or music, then a separate memory card slot will come to the rescue. There is also a fingerprint sensor.

Advantages

  • Built-in large amount of memory;

  • The processor is not weak;

  • There is a fingerprint scanner;

  • There is support for LTE;

  • Great front camera

  • Really decent rear camera

  • Four color options;

  • The latest version of the operating system is used;

  • Low cost.

disadvantages

  • Low display resolution;

  • There is no NFC;

  • The battery could be more capacious.

Xiaomi Mi A1 64GB

Rating: 4.5

Xiaomi Mi A1 64GB

Usually a Chinese company Xiaomi installs the proprietary MiUI shell on its smartphones. Some users don't like it at all. It is for such people that a model called Mi A1 was created. This smartphone is part of the Android One series. This means that it is running the bare version Android 7.1. On my own Xiaomi I added only a few applications that no one forces to use.

In terms of technical characteristics, the smartphone is very good. For the same 12-14 thousand rubles. you are unlikely to find a more advanced device. The picture is displayed here on a 5.5-inch display with a resolution Full HD. The screen is made using IPS technology, which indicates the maximum viewing angles. Additionally, on the front panel, you can find an event indicator light that is gradually disappearing from modern smartphones. There is also a front-facing camera. Alas, it only has a 5-megapixel resolution, so it is unlikely to be used often. But there are no complaints about the rear camera. It is double, while the lenses have different focal lengths, which allows you to use 2x optical zoom at any time. The resolution of both sensors is 12 megapixels. Confused only by the aperture, the value of which is only f / 2.2.

Otherwise, this is a typical smartphone from Xiaomi, sold for not the most money. However, it is quite unexpected to see support for Wi-Fi 802.11ac in such a device. And the Snapdragon 625 processor is not yet received by every Chinese device. But no smartphone Xiaomi can do without a fingerprint scanner, unless it belongs to the ultra-budget segment.

Advantages

  • There is support for fast charging;

  • Large amount of memory;

  • Extremely powerful processor;

  • Installed clean version Android (without MiUI);

  • There are four color options;

  • A very decent display

  • Very good camera with 2x optical zoom;

  • There is a fingerprint sensor;

  • There is an infrared transmitter;

  • High speed wireless modules are available;

  • More than adequate value.

disadvantages

  • The battery capacity is only 3080 mAh;

  • Not the best front camera

  • There is no NFC;

  • Backlight brightness not very high.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X 4 / 64GB

Rating: 4.5

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X 4 / 64GB

Another smartphone from Xiaomi belonging to the line Redmi. This is one of the few devices in our rating that has as many as five color options. It was announced in April 2017. Since then, its characteristics have not become outdated at all, while the cost has dropped to 11-12 thousand rubles. For this money, the buyer will receive a device with a 5.5-inch IPS-display, endowed with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. Above the screen is the lens of a modest 5 megapixel camera. As for the main camera, its resolution is 13 megapixels. When shooting video, the maximum user can count on the 1080p format at 30 frames / s.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X is that rare case where a solution from MediaTek was used as a processor. The flagship Helio X20 with ten cores is more than enough to run any program or game. Nothing bad can be said about the amount of built-in memory here. You can only regret that the microSD slot is combined with the slot for the second SIM card.

Wireless modules available here include LTE-A Cat.6, Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.1. The manufacturer has not forgotten the infrared port, which turns the smartphone into a remote control. Nothing bad can be said about the navigation chip – it works with American, Russian and Chinese satellites. Only the missing NFC is a little upsetting – it would have allowed the device to also pay for purchases. But on the other hand, the fingerprint scanner, which protects confidential information, has not gone anywhere. Well, the autonomous operation of the device is provided by a battery with a capacity of 4100 mAh.

Advantages

  • A powerful processor is used;

  • Low cost;

  • Lots of color options;

  • Decent LCD display

  • Decent rear camera

  • There is an infrared transmitter;

  • Fingerprint sensor is not forgotten;

  • Capacious battery;

  • Large amount of memory;

  • Added FM radio.

disadvantages

  • Weak 'front camera';

  • No NFC chip;

  • Not the most recent version of the operating system.

Xiaomi Redmi 4X 32GB

Rating: 4.4

Xiaomi Redmi 4X 32GB

This smartphone appeared in Chinese online stores in the spring of 2017. He immediately received the status of the budget. Now they are asking for no more than 13 thousand rubles. Such an inexpensive device couldn't get the best specs. In particular, the manufacturer decided to save on a 5-inch display by providing it with only HD resolution. He also did not integrate an advanced front camera here, limiting himself to a 5-megapixel module. But most of all, the buyer will be disappointed with the processor, which is used by Snapdragon 435. This eight-core chipset is enough for the stable operation of the operating system itself and most programs. But in games, the built-in video accelerator Adreno 505 does not show itself from the best side – you have to reduce the level of graphics. Also, memory imposes some restrictions on the user – 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of ROM are built in here. The microSD slot is combined with the slot for the second SIM card.

Fortunately, the Chinese manufacturer did not save on everything. He endowed his creation with a capacious battery. And the rear camera isn't as bad as it sounds. The set of wireless interfaces should also please the buyer, which includes LTE-A Cat.4, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.2 and an infrared transmitter. The only thing missing is the NFC chip, which in 2017 has not yet become a product standard Xiaomi. There is also a fingerprint sensor, thanks to which a thief cannot unlock a smartphone.

Advantages

  • Built-in high-capacity battery;

  • The weight of the smartphone is only 150g;

  • Decent 13MP camera

  • There is an FM radio;

  • Implemented support for LTE;

  • There is a fingerprint scanner;

  • Several body colors to choose from.

disadvantages

  • There is no NFC;

  • Modest front camera

  • Not the most recent version Android;

  • Low display resolution;

  • There could be more permanent memory.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A 32GB

Rating: 4.3

Xiaomi Redmi 5A 32GB

One of the most popular Chinese smartphones. Buyers cannot resist the price of only 8-9 thousand rubles. It is clear that for this money it is foolish to expect the same characteristics from a smartphone as the devices discussed above. Nevertheless, many people lack and cut down opportunities. And if the smartphone was bad, it would not collect positive reviews. In a word, this model could not fail to get into our rating.

Even such an inexpensive device received from Xiaomi 32 GB of internal memory. Needless to say, this is enough for some people? Also, this product has a 13-megapixel camera, albeit with not the highest aperture ratio. I could not help but get the device and support for LTE, thanks to which Internet surfing is only a pleasure.

However, the manufacturer's savings are noticeable stronger than the advantages of the device. The Snapdragon 425 processor will force lower graphics levels in many modern games. The 3000 mAh battery will not allow you to count on more than one day of battery life. Also, there is no NFC, and the Wi-Fi module is limited to the 802.11n standard. Most disappointing is the lack of a fingerprint scanner.

Advantages

  • A decent amount of memory for this price;

  • Good performance of the navigation chip;

  • Relatively good rear camera

  • Several color options;

  • The weight of the device does not exceed 137 g;

  • Compact dimensions.

disadvantages

  • No fingerprint sensor;

  • Not the most capacious battery;

  • There is no NFC;

  • The processor could be more powerful;

  • Weak front camera;

  • Only HD resolution 5-inch display.

Conclusion

This is the list of the best smartphones produced by the Chinese company Xiaomi. Each of the reviewed devices has one or another disadvantage – in the end, even flagships from more famous competitors suffer from this. When choosing a device, we recommend that first of all think about what disadvantages you are ready to accept. In this case, the purchased smartphone will definitely not disappoint you.
