Editors' Comments

This month, we welcome the Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC.

1st – Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro

The Redmi Note 9 Pro is yet another Xiaomi smartphone with an almost exceptional price-performance ratio. It offers a bright 6.67-inch IPS display, 6 GB of RAM, 64 or 128 GB of internal storage, a Snapdragon 720G, and last but not least a quad-camera with 64 MP. The 5,020 mAh battery ensures decent battery life, and a 33 W charger makes sure it refills fast enough as well.

Our main gripe was with its camera, including the ultra-wide angle and macro lens as well as the depth of field sensor, all of which were not perfect. Considering its price we might be asking too much of Xiaomi, though.

Pricecompare

2nd – Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite

Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite

The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite features a 6.47-inch large AMOLED display running at a native resolution of 2340 x 1080 with support for HDR. It is powered by a Snapdragon 730G, 6 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of UFS storage. Furthermore, it features an IR blaster, an audio jack, and last but not least a 5,260 mAh large battery.

Its quad camera offers an additional wide-angle lens, a depth of field sensor, and a macro lens. The 64 MP main camera performed adequately in our test and offers a decent daylight performance. Generally speaking, the Mi Note 10 Lite seemed like a well-thought-out device. The only thing we would have wished for is expandable storage.

Pricecompare

3rd – Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC

Poco X3

The Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC offers a lot for its money, most importantly a 120 Hz display and a brand-new SoC. Its camera is also exceptional for its price class even though it did show a few weaknesses during our test. On paper, the X3 NFC’s quad-camera array may look great but in reality, its two extra 2 MP lenses weren’t particularly useful.

With 6 GB of RAM and either 64 or 128 GB of storage the device should suffice most users. Storage can be further expanded via microSD card. Its dual speakers performed very well and so did its analog headphone jack. The latter is also required for the device’s built-in FM radio receiver. And last but not least the device also features an IR blaster.

4th – realme 6

realme 6

128 GB, 64 MP camera, and a 90 Hz display are the highlights of the realme 6. At the bottom are a mono speaker, a headphone jack, and a USB-C port. At the right-hand side we find a fingerprint reader. The smartphone is powered by a Helio G90T with 8 GB of RAM. The 6.5-inch IPS display is very crisp thanks to its native 1080p resolution but it could have been a bit brighter.

The realme smartphone offers a convincing package without any deal-breaking weaknesses. 

Pricecompare

5th – Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro

Xiaomi’s Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro is one of the first smartphones with a 64 MP main camera sensor supported three additional sensors: one ultra-wide angle and two macro lenses. The colorful case houses a 6.53-inch IPS display, a powerful SoC, 6 GB of RAM, and either 64 or 128 GB of storage, which can be expanded via microSD card.

Battery life was great thanks to the smartphone’s huge battery, and it also features an IR blaster and a headphone jack.

6th – Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite

The Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite's 6.39-inch AMOLED display runs at a native resolution of 2340 x 1080. The smartphone features a powerful Qualcomm SoC, 6 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of UFS storage, which can be expanded via microSD card.

The Xiaomi phone not only features a triple camera but also offers great battery life, an IR blaster, a headphone jack, and an in-display fingerprint reader that turned out to be fairly lethargic overall.

Pricecompare

7th – TCL Plex

TCL Plex
TCL Plex

The TCL Plex is a fairly well-made first smartphone for Chinese manufacturer TCL. It features a 6.53-inch large FHD+ IPS display, a powerful mid-range SoC, 6 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of expandable UFS storage. Its triple-camera has room for improvement given that its competitors manage to get more out of this particular sensor.

One of the highlights is the phone’s Super Bluetooth feature that allows you to stream music simultaneously to up to four Bluetooth audio devices. We also liked the configurable smart key. On the flip side its SoC performed slower than expected, which was fortunately not noticeable in everyday use except when gaming. In addition, TCL failed to obtain a DRM certification for its smartphone.

Pricecompare

8th – Samsung Galaxy M30s

Samsung Galaxy M30s
Samsung Galaxy M30s

The Samsung Galaxy M30s comes with a huge 6,000 mAh battery by default and a very long battery life courtesy of said battery. It also features a triple camera with a 48 MP main sensor, an ultra-wide angle lens, and a third sensor for depth-of-field information.

The front is dominated by the 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display running at FHD+ resolution, and inside we find an in-house Exynos SoC with more than enough power for everyday tasks and challenges, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of expandable storage. But as much as we liked the Samsung smartphone in our review, the speaker is not up to the task and fairly disappointing.

Pricecompare

9th - Samsung Galaxy A50

Samsung Galaxy A50

The Samsung Galaxy A50 is one of the first models from the 2019 A-series. Its spec sheet includes almost everything you might want: 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with 2340 x 1080 pixels, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB internal storage, fast Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, a 4000 mAh battery, and a triple camera.

The Samsung smartphone can also convince in our review. Advantages include the great screen, long battery runtimes, and a decent camera performance. The fingerprint scanner, however, did not work perfectly, and the location performance could be more accurate.

Pricecompare

10th – Oppo A91

Oppo A91

The Oppo A91 offers a 6.4-inch AMOLED display that not only offers exceptional picture quality but also high brightness. It is powered by a Helio P70 and 8 GB of RAM and has access to 128 GB of microSD-expandable storage.

The cameras were average at best, and the battery did not perform as well as we expected. Nevertheless, the A91 is a mid-range force to be reckoned with.
