Бестселлер – a model with outstanding performance (it could be the price, not just the technical characteristics). Models marked with the word “Bestseller” are worth paying close attention to.

Player… Notable solutions, typical representatives of their class. These are mass-produced products that generate the main sales in certain segments.

Applicant… Phones in this category have not grown to the player’s class, but have a number of attractive features (for example, cost, but it can also become a negative factor, and then the player turns into a contender), they may lack many functions that have become standard for a particular class. As a rule, the “Contender” category includes devices from second and third tier manufacturers or overpriced phones from large manufacturers.

Technology for technology’s sake… Niche products, interesting for their technical solutions, but not intended for a wide audience. Based on the possibilities, the device is interesting, but its size and speed of operation negate its advantages and make it niche.

Not for all… Niche solutions, which are usually distinguished by an extraordinary design or the presence of unique, but unnecessary opportunities. Designed for a narrow group of buyers who buy original things for self-expression.

Mediocre product… This category includes devices that are initially aimed at everyone and no one. Phones that lack distinctive features, making them one of the many on the market.

Outsider… Phones that, contrary to common sense, enter the market and do not attract consumers even to a small extent. Dead products not made for any sales.

Also, all models are divided into 4 price segments, the main technical characteristics indicated by the manufacturer are listed. If any smartphone seemed interesting, then a little more detail is written about it. The price indicated in the description is the lowest I found in the official retail. Offers on the “gray” market, all their pros and cons are at your discretion. From time to time, devices may appear that are already available for purchase, but have not yet been presented in official retail.

Every time I want to take a ride on Vivo smartphones, calling them overpriced, I restrain myself, since sales statistics say that every quarter the brand ships 20-30 million devices, ranking 4-5 in the world.

Vivo is not doing well in Russia yet. However, like Oppo. Both companies regularly release new devices, but few will raise a hand to give 65 thousand for Vivo. This is, of course, a matter of brand perception. Once it was considered not comme il faut to pay a similar amount for Huawei, but now nothing. Pay! There are even those who are still buying, despite the lack of services from Google.

The smartphone is based on a mid-range chipset, but the manufacturer believes that the camera system will make you overpay. There is a kind of “professional stabilization”, there is an “ultimatum night mode” and a 60x hyperzum. And the slogan: “Change the world of photography.” So far, only Apple has changed the world of photography, when it launched an advertising campaign “shot on the iPhone” and everyone realized that you can do beautifully on a mobile phone.

I will give a few descriptions from the official site to make it clearer what you are dealing with.

About design. A thin bending display with a tiny opening for the front camera with a diameter of only 3.96 mm, graceful edges, rounded using the R3 technology, and a two-stage camera unit – the device is pleasant to hold and just contemplate.

More about design. The Steel Gray shade is a futuristic solution that combines high style and high technology. (Everything is very high!)

About cameras. Vivo’s revolutionary wide-angle camera is mounted on a dual-gimbal that allows it to rotate to capture the beauty of the world around it. This movement can be seen when the camera is tracking objects or returning to its original position when reset. This process is complemented by on-screen animations. (Very cool, I love to betray the rotation!)

And more about the cameras. Tracking autofocus. And the macro camera is 8 MP.

Otherwise, everything in the smartphone is also very good. Display with a peak brightness of 1300 nits and a frequency of 90 Hz. Separate audio chip, Hi-Res certified smartphone. And they will give headphones as a gift. Well I do not know. Maybe he got excited, calling the smartphone an outsider. What do you think?

My opinion is that the device is really interesting, but as a brand for which you can pay so much money, Vivo is not seen, so sales will be minimal.

In the US market, the smartphone can be found for a nicer price of $ 599. Velvet is an all-new line in LG’s portfolio, replacing the G-series, which dubbed the flagship V-series. Velvet got its own unique positioning. This is not a flagship, but a middle + segment. That is, a simpler processor, a simpler camera, etc. And by the way, this is also the first representative of LG’s new approach to design.

But! You can purchase a branded case with a second screen for your smartphone. Initially, I decided that a cover with a screen was stupid, but after turning the devices at exhibitions, I came to the conclusion that, on the contrary, the idea is much more promising than folding screens. For work, play and entertainment, two screens are much more convenient than one foldable.

In general, LG managed to make a good device without obvious failures, with 5G support and at a good price (if you look at the price in dollars). Let’s see how buyers in the US will react to the smartphone. And don’t forget that LG’s new gender has pledged that the mobile division will be profitable in 2021.

Initially, I wrote about this smartphone back in May, but now Poco F2 Pro is on sale in the domestic market. I originally wrote the following.

If we look at the new Poco F2 Pro in a vacuum, then this is an interesting machine with excellent performance at a reasonable price. 40 rubles is a fair price for such hardware. The Poco F000 Pro really claims to be the flagship killer. It has top-end specs and powerful cameras, and even has a twist in the form of a sliding front camera.

Here, by the way, there is a slippery moment. The first “poko” was unique both in price and hardware, and in design. And the new Poco F2 Pro is Redmi K30 Pro. Knowing this moment, listening to the stories at the presentation, what we thought, tried, designed, is a little strange. Thought in the Redmi team. You position yourself as a separate independent office within the Xiaomi holding. What have you been thinking for a long time? Call it Pocopfone F2 or Poco F2?

July novelties: 8 major smartphones of the month

The question remains whether your smartphone makes you want to make a purchase. The landscape of the market has changed in 2 years since the first “Pokophone”. And there are many affordable and interesting smartphones around. At the same time, technologies have developed so much that the presence of the top-end chipset is not necessary. Xiaomi Mi 10 is a prime example. Top camera on Snapdragon 720G. People buy and are satisfied.

In any case, I am for any kipish, and the more new devices there are, the more interesting it is for us and you to live. Good luck to Poco F2 Pro!

I still agree with everything said, however, as you can see, the price turned out to be not 40, but 50 thousand rubles. Which is quite logical, given the weakening of the ruble and the general financial instability. One trouble! The rise in wages has not kept pace with the rise in prices. The prospects for the unknown expensive brand are vague. And the question remains, who is the target audience of Poco in the Russian market.

The flagship from realme. So far, Realme, like Vivo, is not very popular in our market. But I advise you to keep an eye on the devices, because, unlike Vivo, realme products have an attractive price, like Xiaomi, while the devices are still devoid of advertising integrations. The smartphone was reviewed by Ilya Subbotin, I recommend it.

The smartphone is extremely interesting. It is on the chipset of the previous, but still very current generation – Snapdragon 855+. Huge 6.6-inch 120Hz screen. Memory 8/12 GB. Camera systems are also curious. The main unit consists of 4 cameras, the front camera consists of 2 cameras. In his review, Ilya wrote very correctly: “realme did what I personally expected from OnePlus in Russia.” Exactly. OnePlus has turned from a flagship killer into an ordinary brand. And it seems that realme took its place. With the only amendment that the brand works in all price segments.

Does the smartphone have any downsides? Certainly. But the specs and price outweighs. I would call it a “player” in the rating, but the brand is still unknown to most, and on the shelf for the same price there are more eminent competitors who will drag sales.

I still believe that any adequate flagship on Qualcomm or Kirin is a 100% gaming smartphone. However, unlike traditional games, mobile gaming is booming. Call of Duty Mobile and PUBG have proven that you can even play shooters and have fun. The development of gaming streaming services will continue with the proliferation of 5G. Many will discover that it is possible and necessary to play AAA games on smartphones. Agree, it’s one thing to try to see something on a bad screen with low resolution and lags. And it’s completely different when you have a 6.65-inch screen with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and support for HDR10 + and everything flies on 5G. By the way, most laptop screens and monitors have worse performance, and what people buy under the guise of gaming laptops raises questions.

Separately, gaming smartphones are amusing with their performance. And in general, this category is perhaps the first smartphones in several years, in which there is “game”! So, Lenovo has stuck as much as 16 GB of RAM into the device. Another interesting moment is fast 90 W charging, which allows you to charge your smartphone up to 100% in 30 minutes, and up to 50% in 10 minutes. To achieve this speed, the smartphone has two batteries, and it will have to be charged with two wires at once.

July novelties: 8 major smartphones of the month

You can buy a docking station with a monitor for your smartphone and play on a big screen. So far, such solutions seem far-fetched and strange (to charge a smartphone with two wires!), But it is likely that in the future, work with the device will continue. You use your smartphone as it is, when on the street, coming home, you put it in a docking station, and the device becomes the heart of a smart home.

And the smartphone was also included in the selection, because look at what a chic price it is on the Chinese market.

Another smartphone not represented on our market. Typical Motorola specifications and design. The smartphone has only one highlight that made it into the collection – the stylus included. On the market, besides Samsung, there is also LG, which makes smartphones with stylus. But that’s all.

Unfortunately, Motorola got down to business in a slipshod manner. The stylus in the Galaxy Note series, of which I am a fan, is a huge improvement on how you can interact with your smartphone. Starting from the ability to work with text, windows, photography and ending with the ability to draw. At Motorola, the stylus provides only basic drawing capabilities. Even on the promo-site Motorola points out the opportunity to write “Eggs” by hand as a selling chip. Nobody will do this.

I hope that these are just the first steps and the company will work on the software in future models. In the meantime, there is only Galaxy Note on the market. This is sad.

An affordable smartphone from Redmi. The main advantage is balance. A large battery, a large screen, a modern chipset manufacturing process, as well as an up-to-date version of the shell (MIUI 12). Separately, the radio with a built-in antenna pleases, as well as the presence of an infrared port, which can be used to control household appliances. You shouldn’t expect miracles from a smartphone in terms of performance, or photo quality, or anything else. The idea is that this is just a smartphone that is comfortable to work with and which will not let the owner down. There is also NFC. Given the budget of the product, you should understand that you will have to spend time configuring the shell in order to reduce the bombardment of ad integrations.

July novelties: 8 major smartphones of the month

At the moment, as I understand it, it is only available in the “gray” version. I recommend remembering the device and keeping track of when it goes on sale officially. Surely at the start there will be discounts and gifts.

Conclusion

July is a month of calm, there were no new interesting devices on the Russian market. But nothing, on August 5 we will watch a presentation from Samsung. And there will soon be a new iPhone. Tell us in the comments which smartphones you bought or looked after for yourself in July. Or just write what smartphone you use, when you bought it and when you plan to update. For example, I have the main device Samsung Galaxy Note 9. I’m looking forward to the new Note. As it goes on sale, I’ll go to the store to study and think. If everything goes well, I will make myself a gift for the New Year. Thus, it turns out that I have been using the Note 9 for exactly 2 years. Well, if the new model does not cause awe in my soul, then I will continue to use the old smartphone. I cannot say that over the past 1.5 years of operation, the smartphone has begun to work worse, although, as it seems to me, I regularly use its capabilities to the maximum.
