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.

Mi 10 is the flagship of Xiaomi, both in terms of characteristics, and in features and chips. In Mi 10, the company used all the top technologies that were available to it: a chipset, cameras with powerful AI, battery and charging speed, Wi-Fi 6, screen and its color rendering. And, of course, don’t forget about the innovative cooling system.

I found it difficult to give a rating to the smartphone. In fact, we have a real flagship in front of us. However, everyone who finds out the price of 69 rubles, considers it his duty to clarify: “990 thousand for Xiaomi?” In this regard, the Mi 70 has something in common with the Redmi Note 10 Pro, which has become the most expensive smartphone in the Redmi Note series. The high price is an unpopular step, but it is necessary if the company wants to live and develop.

June novelties: how Xiaomi wants to change the rules of the game

The most interesting smartphone from Redmi. It is interesting both in characteristics and capabilities. We have released a promotional material dedicated to the device, and next week there will be a regular review, where there will be more different tests.

Advertising text about Redmi Note 9 Pro was easy and pleasant to do. There are no subtle points that need to be bypassed, no searches, how to better tell about the smartphone. And then a logical question arises: “If the smartphone is so good, then why advertising? Everyone knows that good products don’t need advertising! ” The last statement is a myth that must be understood. By the way, I remember one of the interviews with Arnold Schwarzenegger. He was asked how he explains his success. He replied that he worked hard and constantly advertised himself to everyone. And indeed it is. Read his biography. Take an unofficial one from Wendy Leigh.

But back to the smartphone from Xiaomi. Despite the fact that there are premium devices under the Redmi brand, they did not reach Russia. And in our market, Redmi has developed an image of affordable devices. My opinion is that with the Redmi Note 9 Pro, the company is trying to move to a new level, breaking the perception of a budget product.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro has been approached with much more attention than the previous generation. We can say that the smartphone was polished to a maximum shine, so that there was nothing to complain about. For example, the Note 8 Pro was based on a MediaTek chipset that rivals the Snapdragon 720G. Reason for replacement? Image of MediaTek. I remember those sorry-that-on-MediaTek review comments.

Will Redmi Note 9 Pro be a success? Time will tell.

Nokia 5.3 is a great workhorse. The smartphone will receive an update to Android 11 and 12. It was also marked as Android Enterprise Recommended, that is, it is a good solution for companies that want to buy high-quality smartphones for their employees at a reasonable price. Judge for yourself, for work and productivity mail behind the eyes, the camera will also satisfy all the requirements. The chipset is the most energy efficient and has a large 4 mAh battery. The case is reinforced, plastic, allows you to hope that the smartphone will survive the fall. And, of course, it should be noted pure Android, which every company can customize for themselves.

Accordingly, it turns out to be a chic device for entry-level and intermediate-level managers.

Probably, such a smartphone is also suitable for people who do not really want to understand technology. This is what we climbed on the Internet and found how to disable ads, how to remove non-removable applications, etc. And a person not in the subject can be puzzled by the abundance of notifications and ads. And here everything is clean and understandable.

This is a repetition of the April text. I decided to do this, because now my smartphone is on the test. The review is set on the calendar for Friday. You can write a question in the comments.

The younger brother of Redmi Note 9 Pro. The smartphone is good for the current price. The weak point is the lack of NFC. The rest has everything, including an infrared port and 4 photo modules. I give a life hack for those who want to have NFC without overpaying for older models. Buy Redmi Note 9. Save money. And on them you take a bracelet from Xiaomi with NFC support and the ability to pay. Profit!

An excellent example of a smartphone from Samsung. Chipset based on the current 8 nm process technology. Large 5mAh battery, 000W charging. There is NFC.

At the same time, the smartphone looks quite modern. He has a screen with a cutout, as many as 4 main cameras. With a price of 14 rubles, the device has many different competitors. The main ones are, of course, realme smartphones. I single out these devices, as they have a shell without ads. Recently, the chef verbally shared entertaining statistics (dates, source unknown) that in Russia a quarter of new xiaomi users came from the iPhone, after which he rhetorically asked how many will return back to the iPhone. Obviously, those who crossed over did this not because their life is bright and beautiful. Quite the opposite. These were probably old wretched iPhones that were falling apart before our eyes, it was necessary to urgently look for a replacement, so they took it. It is difficult to imagine the depth of the psychological trauma that these people suffered when, after a quiet iOS, they switched to the violently sociable shell of xiaomi, with which you need to learn how to handle. So you know, friends, when leaving the iPhone, take realme, Motorola or Nokia to get acquainted with Android. As practice shows, these are the least sociable smartphones in terms of various notifications.

The new device from Motorola has just gone on sale at an attractive price of 11 rubles. As for the smartphone, I would like to say that, like the Nokia 990, it is a workhorse. The only drawback is the lack of NFC. The smartphone focuses on the photo component. There is even a “studio lighting” function.

By the way, I like Motorola because the site publishes real photos taken with a smartphone. For example, this photo is used to demonstrate night photography.

I drew attention to this, comparing with Samsung, where the presented demo photos for the A21s come with the label “* The images are simulated and serve only as an illustration to the texts.” Motorola’s approach is more sympathetic.
