Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 12 / 256GB

Samsung Galaxy Note 10+

Do you have a laptop or desktop computer? If so, how much RAM does it have? Most people's computers only have 8GB of RAM, and sometimes less. Well, the top version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ got 12 GB! But a few years ago the operating system Android simply did not recognize such a volume!

In fact, it is still questionable whether the flagship smartphone from Samsung can consume this amount of RAM. Yes, you can keep a lot of all kinds of instant messengers in the background. You can run some kind of game. The smartphone is able to keep track of your physical activity and current location. But this is unlikely to consume at least half of the available memory space. Therefore, we can safely say that 12 GB is a reserve for the future. Now, such a volume will truly delight only those who are going to use this phablet for regular video editing. But 256 GB of permanent memory is already an urgent reality. Well, how to get by with a smaller volume if the camera installed here is capable of 4K video filming?

This smartphone continues the line of South Korean devices equipped with a multifunctional stylus. Here, this optional accessory acts as a magic wand – it can be used to remotely control the presentation of presentations and videos. Another unique technology in South Korean flagship devices is DeX. In the case of the Galaxy Note 10+, it does not require a separate docking station. You just connect your smartphone to the monitor, after which you get a user-friendly interface designed like an operating system Windows.

This unit can be used in any environment. Even immersion in the pool is permissible, since a decent water resistance is implemented here. The image is displayed on a huge 6.8-inch display with a resolution of 3040×1440 pixels. Technology AMOLED was used to create it. The front camera with a 10-megapixel sensor is located in a small round notch. By the way, the aspect ratio of the screen 19: 9 testifies to convenient simultaneous work with several applications and comfortable watching movies. By the way, what is happening on the screen is accompanied by excellent stereo sound!

This phablet can be talked about for a very long time. He received all the modern technologies that are now available to his manufacturer. In particular, the device squeezes out absolutely everything from LTE networks, downloading files in several streams at an unusually high speed. Also, the device is capable of boasting an excellent camera, which includes four modules. Even Wi-Fi 802.11ax support is implemented here, although at the time of writing this review, this standard has not yet been certified in Russia. You can only complain about the weight of the smartphone, which reaches an impressive 196 g. And the price will not please everyone. However, sales reports indicate that there are a large number of people living in our country who are not at all deterred by such a price tag.

Rating: 4.8

OnePlus 7 Pro 12

Another smartphone with 12 GB of RAM, now from a Chinese manufacturer. It is also ready to contain a huge number of running applications in the background. Unlike the South Korean, this device has a solid screen. This means that there are no cutouts for the front camera lens. Therefore, nothing will prevent you from getting real pleasure from watching movies. This is facilitated by the aspect ratio of 19.5: 9.

Really, this device, estimated at 46 thousand rubles, did without a front-end? No, it's just that this camera slides out of the body here. The presence of such a mechanism did not affect the reliability of the device in any way – the manufacturer claims that the smartphone can be safely dropped, nothing will happen to the camera from this. Some people open beer lids with a retractable module, it fits so tightly to the insides of the device.

The screen installed here has a diagonal of 6.67 inches and a resolution of 3120×1440 pixels. It was created using technology AMOLED, which allows you to hope for perfect blacks and long battery life. And how else, if the capacity of the battery located under the body is 4000 mAh? Also inside the smartphone is an eight-core Snapdragon 855 processor. 256 GB of permanent memory are intended for data storage. Unfortunately, there is no microSD card slot here, so problems can arise with regular 4K video recording.

If you suddenly notice a lack of free space, it is recommended to use cloud services. Access to them is carried out at high speed, because the device supports both LTE-A of the 16th category, and Wi-Fi 802.11ac. Also among the wireless modules present here is Bluetooth 5.0. Not forgotten, of course, and NFC, which is necessary for contactless payment.

Everyone knows that the South Korean flagships are great at photography. But the Chinese OnePlus 7 Pro is in no way inferior to them. It uses a triple rear camera, the main module of which has a 48-megapixel matrix. As mentioned above, this smartphone can shoot 4K video, and even at 60 frames / s.

Included with this unit you will find Warp Charge 30 charger.With it, you can not be afraid that your smartphone suddenly starts to discharge. This AC adapter charges the OnePlus 7 Pro enough in just half an hour that you can use it until nightfall.

ASUS ROG Phone II ZS660KL 12

ASUS has been promoting the Republic of Game line of laptops for a long time. These devices are designed for gamers, so they are equipped with top-end features. Now this line includes some smartphones. One of them is the ASUS ROG Phone II. What does a player need from such a device? High frame rate. This model provides it easily. To do this, it is endowed with an extremely powerful eight-core processor and 120 Hz display. And it is the latter that is the main distinguishing feature of the smartphone.

Use AMOLED – the screen is pleasant in any conditions. Its black colors can be safely called ideal. The resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels allows you to enjoy viewing your photos. Well, the aspect ratio of 19.5: 9 speaks of high comfort when watching videos. By the way, the high frame rate is clearly noticeable not only in games, but also when using the operating system interface Android 9.0 – the movement through it is very smooth.

This device copes well with photography and video shooting. Although it must be admitted that in this regard it is still inferior to the flagships from the South Korean company Samsung. On the back of the ASUS ROG Phone II there is only a dual camera, whose matrixes have a resolution of 48 and 13 megapixels. An aperture of f / 1.79 indicates that shooting in low light conditions can cause problems. As for the front camera, it is 24-megapixel.

The device received a lot of all kinds of wireless modules. In particular, there is an NFC chip, thanks to which contactless payment is realized. Well, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and LTE-A are used to access the Internet. If we talk about memory, then hardly anyone will find its volume insufficient. 12 GB of RAM should be enough for absolutely any application. Well, for storing media files, 512 GB of permanent memory are intended. Against their background, the lack of a microSD card slot does not seem scary at all.

ASUS ROG Phone II is able to boast of a long battery life, because under its body is a 6000 mAh battery. Of course, it supports the latest fast charging technology. But because of such a battery, you have to endure a lot of weight.


  • There is a fingerprint scanner;
  • A very capacious battery is used;
  • Huge amount of memory;
  • Installed a very powerful processor;
  • A large number of high-speed wireless networks;
  • Good front camera
  • Excellent AMOLED – display with increased frame rate;

Nubia Red Magic 3s 12 / 256GB

Nubia Red Magic 3s 12

ZTE, which owns the Nubia sub-brand, also released its own gaming smartphone. Its device is capable of boasting not only top-end characteristics, but also a memorable design. The back panel of the device seems to rip itself open, the insides seem to bulge out of it! Many gaming laptops usually have this look.

Nubia Red Magic 3s operates under Android 9.0. The front panel of the device is AMOLED – a display with a diagonal of 6.65 inches. The resolution of this screen is not extremely high. But the eight-core Snapdragon 855 Plus processor has enough power to display the picture in games at a very high frequency. Also, one cannot fail to note the aspect ratio of 19.5: 9, which contributes to a comfortable viewing of films and entertainment videos.

Now an increasing number of smartphones have a dual and even triple camera at their disposal. It is all the more surprising to see here only one lens on the back and front panels. It must be admitted that the 48-megapixel camera does its job well. But this does not negate the fact that she is not able to bring the picture closer, or provide a wide-angle shooting. The aperture of this module is open to f / 1.7 – again, not a record. As for the front camera, it has a 16-megapixel resolution.

In terms of wireless modules, the device has no problems. All of them have support for high speeds, which can be useful when traveling on the global web, and in games. Well, 12 GB of RAM allows even Google Chrome to feel at ease. Some confusion for the user is caused only by the permanent memory, the volume of which is 256 GB. Modern games are very heavy, so keeping a large number of them on your smartphone won't work. There is no memory card slot here. And it would be useful to anyone who wants to use the rear camera very often.

Autonomous operation of the device is provided by a 5000 mAh battery. With AMOLED – the screen is quite enough in order not to remember about the existence of the network adapter throughout the day.


  • A fresh version of the OS is installed;
  • Great design;
  • Decent AMOLED – display;
  • A very powerful processor is built in;
  • Good quality of photo and video shooting;
  • High speed networks are supported;
  • Huge amount of RAM;
  • Decent battery life
  • There is a fingerprint scanner.


  • I would like a triple or at least a double camera;
  • The smartphone is not lightweight;
  • High price;
  • There is no NFC chip;
  • No memory card slot;
  • Not everyone will like the branded shell.

Samsung Galaxy S10 + 8 / 128GB

Samsung Galaxy S10 + 8

Another smartphone from the South Korean company Samsung. He is also considered the flagship. Four color variations of this model are on sale. There are also options with a processor of its own production, and with a chip from Qualcomm. However, in our country you can find only the version with Exynos 9820 on board. He is assisted by 8 GB of RAM. It's not a record volume anymore, but even it is enough for the eyes for many years of using the device. As for the permanent memory, the buyer is expected to have 128 GB. Not enough, but there is a slot for a microSD card, so this is unlikely to be enough for you.

As expected, the device received AMOLED – display. In this case, its diagonal is 6.4 inches. The 19: 9 aspect ratio allows you to watch movies and videos without much inconvenience.

On the back of the device is a triple camera. She perfectly photographs, no matter how dark it is around. As for the front camera, its 10-megapixel resolution will also be enough. I am glad that you can even take pictures of yourself somewhere at the sea or in the pool, because the smartphone has received full water resistance. Pictures and videos can be instantly shared on social media. It won't take long, the device has received support for all known high-speed networks, even Wi-Fi 802.11ax.

The South Korean manufacturer was aiming for a relatively lightweight smartphone. That must be why he didn’t build a record-breaking battery in it. However, 4100 mAh is quite a decent parameter, which is enough for about a day and a half of using the device.


  • The weight of the smartphone does not exceed 175 g;
  • Water protection implemented;
  • Long battery life;
  • The latest version is installed Android;
  • Excellent AMOLED – display;
  • Great rear camera
  • High speed wireless networks are supported;
  • A powerful processor is used;
  • There is a slot for a memory card.


  • Not very large amount of permanent memory;
  • High price;
  • The power button is a bit high;
  • Not a very fast fingerprint scanner.

Huawei P30 Pro

Huawei P30 Pro

The novelty from Huawei also received a huge amount of RAM. More specifically, 8 GB is built in here. This is more than enough to run a very large number of even very heavy applications in the background. Well, for storing media files and games, 256 GB of permanent memory are intended here. If this suddenly seems not enough, you can use a memory card. In this case, you will have to refuse to install a second SIM card.

This smartphone is the flagship. But the manufacturer does not position its device as a gaming device, so you should not hope for an increased frame rate. The weight of the device is 192 g. Quite a bit, especially if you remember that full water protection is implemented here. The dimensions of the gadget are quite decent, there was even a place for a display with a diagonal of 6.47 inches. The technology OLED was used for its production, so you can count on perfect blacks and low power consumption.

The device is powered by an operating system Android 9.0 and an eight-core HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor. The latter is more than capable of surfing the Internet and running heavy games. The smartphone also supports almost all modern wireless networks. For example, it is capable of connecting to 802.11ac Wi-Fi. The NFC chip is not forgotten, thanks to which you can pay for purchases with the device.

The main feature Huawei of the P30 Pro is the presence of a camera here, consisting of four modules. It provides the device with wide-angle shooting and even 5x optical zoom! The main module has a 40-megapixel resolution, thanks to which photos are incredibly clear. But until recently, even SLR cameras with a full-frame matrix could not boast of such a resolution! If we talk about the front camera, then it is located in the teardrop notch of the display, and its resolution is 32 megapixels.

Another feature of the gadget is Samsung's DeX counterpart. This means that a smartphone can be connected to a monitor, turning it into a computer. And many buyers assure that this function is implemented in the best way here.

Otherwise, this is a typical smartphone with top specs. It can be unlocked by scanning a fingerprint, photographing a face, and in many other ways. As for the battery, its capacity is 4200 mAh. The charger is connected via the USB Type-C port. This process will be very short-lived.

If we talk about the disadvantages, then the most important of them is cost. A rare resident of Russia is ready to pay 54 thousand rubles for such a smartphone. Also, not everyone will like the lack of an audio jack here. How long can you transfer us to the adapter?


  • Water protection implemented;
  • A fresh version of the OS is installed;
  • The smartphone is not particularly heavy;
  • Excellent OLED – display;
  • Wonderful 4-module rear camera;
  • High speed networks are supported;

Honor 20 Pro 8 256GB

Another frameless smartphone, in the display of which there is a hole for the front camera lens. It also operates under Android 9.0. However, this is not at all surprising, because older versions of the operating system simply cannot recognize 8 GB of RAM.

This model is in great demand, so the Chinese manufacturer has released as many as six of its color options. The body of the device is made of glass and metal. This can be said about almost all other representatives of our rating. This choice of the manufacturer can be called controversial, because the glass makes the device slippery. However, who now uses such an expensive smartphone without a case?

The front panel of this gadget houses an IPS display with a diagonal of 6.26 inches. The resolution is usual, 2340×1080 pixels. The 19.5: 9 aspect ratio allows you to comfortably watch high-budget films.

There are four lenses on the back of the device. This number of camera modules allows you to zoom in three times, and use wide-angle shooting, and blur the background. The resolution of the main module is brought to an incredible 48 megapixels. However, don't expect the image to be incredibly detailed. But it will be bright for sure, because the aperture here is opened to f / 1.4. As for the front camera, its resolution has been increased to 32 megapixels.

The device supports high-speed wireless networks – LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 5.0. The Chinese manufacturer did not forget about the NFC chip. Even under the body of the gadget there are 256 GB of permanent memory and a top-end eight-core HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor. The work of all this stuff is provided by a 4000 mAh battery. Alas, you should not count on long-term operation from a full charge – the display manufacturing technology affects.


  • There is a fingerprint scanner;
  • High speed wireless networks are supported;
  • Excellent rear camera with four modules;
  • Extremely powerful processor built in;
  • Large amount of RAM and permanent memory;
  • A huge number of color options;
  • Weight does not exceed 182 g;
  • The latest version of the OS is used.


  • Not very long battery life;
  • The display is made using IPS technology;

  • A macro lens hides a simple matrix underneath.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro 8 / 128GB

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro

The company also created its own smartphone with a large amount of RAM Xiaomi. Although we must admit that this is not typical for her, because the Chinese are trying to produce inexpensive devices. However, it is noticeable here that the manufacturer tried in every possible way to save money. For example, he endowed his creation with a relatively inexpensive AMOLED – a monobrow display. Its diagonal is 6.21 inches and the resolution is 2248×1080 pixels. The operating system is responsible for what is happening on the screen Android 8.1. The body of this model is made of aluminum and glass. The weight of only 177 g speaks about not the most powerful components.

Let's immediately note the components that the manufacturer saved on. This is the rear camera. Yes, it is double, but in fact it does not provide any interesting possibilities. Also, the Chinese have reduced the amount of permanent memory and got rid of the microSD card slot. We should also mention the battery, the capacity of which has been reduced to 3000 mAh. Rest assured, you will need to use the charger every night. Its connection is via the USB Type-C port. You will have to connect wired headphones to the same jack.

For the rest, the manufacturer did not blunder. He endowed his creation with a 20-megapixel front camera. The device also received a huge number of high-speed wireless modules. Even the NFC chip has not been forgotten, thanks to which the smartphone can be used to pay for purchases. And as a processor, the eight-core Snapdragon 845 is used, which until recently was considered the most powerful in the world. The amount of RAM is 8 GB, which can also be considered an excellent parameter. Finally, the fingerprint scanner completes the joyful picture.


  • Decent amount of RAM;
  • Built-in powerful processor;
  • High-speed wireless modules are used;
  • Quite good front camera;
  • There is a light indication of events;
  • Not bad AMOLED – display;
  • The smartphone is relatively lightweight.


  • There is no 3.5mm audio jack;
  • Not a very capacious battery;
  • I would like more permanent memory;
  • No slot for microSD card;
  • Not the best rear camera;
  • Waterproof would not hurt.


Now you know which smartphones have the most RAM. Be sure that such a supply will be enough in two, and in three years, and in more years. This amount of RAM allows you to easily move between applications that remain running in the background. Gamers who do not want to leave the game for the sake of reading messages in instant messengers should also rejoice.
