Editors' Comments

Quite a kerfuffle this month cause by the five new-entries!

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.

Pricecompare

4th – realme 7 Pro

realme 7 Pro
realme 7 Pro

The realme 7 Pro features a 6.4-inch AMOLED display running in FHD+ resolution at a refresh rate of 60 Hz. It is powered by a Snapdragon 720G with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of microSD-expandable storage. Its quad-camera includes a 64 MP sensor, an ultra-wide angle lens, a macro lens, and a depth-of-field sensor. Its 4,500 mAh battery ensures decent battery life.

Downsides include realme’s slow pace of releasing security updates as well as the lack of the 90 Hz display that was included on the device’s predecessor.

Pricecompare

5th – 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

6th – Oppo A73 5G

Oppo A73 5G
Oppo A73 5G

You can already get decent 5G smartphones for less than 300 Euros, such as for example the Oppo A73 5G. With its 6,5-inch IPS display, its modern MediaTek SoC, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage it is up-to-date and supports a wide range of frequencies. Its triple-lens camera may not be the best shooter around but does offer an additional ultra-wide angle lens, and the 4,040 mAh battery makes for very good battery life.

We found no real downsides in our review. The only thing we would have wished for is a microSD slot.

Pricecompare

7th – ZTE Axon 11 4G

ZTE Axon 11
ZTE Axon 11

The ZTE Axon 11 4G's 6,47-inch display runs in FHD+ resolution at a refresh rate of 60 Hz. Its Helio P70 SoC may not be the latest chip around but it is still more than adequately fast, and it has access to 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of microSD-expandable storage. The smartphone also offers a quad-camera and a 4,000 mAh battery.

In our review we noted its light and slim design. In return, its internal storage is quite slow, and battery life could have been better.

Pricecompare

8th – Vivo Y70

Vivo Y70
Vivo Y70

The Vivo Y70 is a slim smartphone with a 6,44-inch large AMOLED display powered by a Qualcomm SoC with access to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal expandable storage. Its triple-camera is solid, however we failed to see the benefits of its additional lenses. Its 4,100 mAh battery ensures long battery life.

One of the Y70’s unique features is certainly its long-term software and update support. Apart from that we also liked its overall well-balanced package. The only real gripe was its slow microSD slot without support for exFAT.

Pricecompare

9th – 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.

Pricecompare

10th – Samsung Galaxy A41

Samsung Galaxy A41
Samsung Galaxy A41

The Samsung Galaxy A41 comes in a colorful and surprisingly lightweight plastic case, which houses a 6.1-inch SuperAMOLED display running in FHD+ resolution. It is powered by a mid-range SoC made by MediaTek with access to 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. It is also capable of taking two Nano SIM cards in addition to a microSD card.

In our review, we noted its triple-camera’s solid performance as well as its decent battery life, and found no real downsides worth mentioning.
