G8 LG ThinQ (6,1”)

Price: 54 500 rubles

It wasn't such a breakthrough like Samsung S10, but there are innovations that deserve attention. For example, holes for speakers do not exist: a clear rich sound comes straight out of the OLED-display technology: thanks to Crystal Sound. Dual rear camera uses artificial intelligence and achieves the greatest effect when shooting food and nightlife scenes. Inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, therefore system LG G8 ThinQ is not far behind from its competitors.

What LG shouldn't do is to overload the flagship of the useless features like face recognition technology palm. Who needs it when there is a Face ID and the fingerprint scanner? But at least G8 ThinQ is cheaper than the same Samsung or iPhone, so some of his shortcomings can close your eyes.


Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (6,2”)

Asus ROG Phone (6”)

Cost: 54 990 rubles

the Explosion of popularity gaming smartphones a bit distracted public attention from Samsung in side the Razer. Then the Taiwanese Asus заявили о себе, как о производителе игровых мобильников. Смартфон ROG (то есть Republic of Gamers) имеет разогнанный процессор Snapdragon 845, OLED-экран с частотой обновления 90 Гц и 8GB оперативной памяти. Игровая направленность смартфона ярко выражена в его дизайне: медные вставки, резкие линии и острые углы цепляют взгляд с первой секунды. По краям рамки находятся дополнительные элементы управления – сенсорные зоны Air Triggers, которые выполняют функцию игрового контроллера.

As a regular cooling under load is not enough, Asus has developed for this smartphone mobile cooler Aero Active, as well as cover which does not hinder installation of the cooler.

In General, all the main features relate to gaming. As the camera phone of Asus ROG Phone does not possess. And for those who do not want to openly demonstrate their passion for the game, his appearance will seem too pretentious. But in most aspects it is a balanced and thought-out cell phone.

Sony Xperia XZ3 (6”)

Price: from 39 990 rubles

a few months after the release of the Xperia XZ2 Sony представила следующую в линейке модель – Xperia XZ3. От предшественника ее в первую очередь отличает дисплей: 5,7-дюймовый LCD сменился на 6-дюймовый OLED. Увеличился аккумулятор. Благодаря этим несложным изменениям Sony наконец-то удалось выйти на уровень премиальных plamenov от Samsung Apple и Google.

Something XZ3 is not enough, and some frankly unnecessary. For example, the dynamic vibration in practice not be of any use, and the touch-side surface cause false alarms.

Razer Phone 2 (5,7”)

Price: 32 990 rubles

second Diagonal Razer Phone скромная по фаблетным меркам: всего-то 5,7 дюймов. Тем не менее это панель 16:9, а это значит, что в портретной ориентации смартфон предлагает более широкий формат изображения по сравнению с большинством современных plamenov.

Толстые рамки и массивные решетки динамиков создают впечатление, что смартфон уже года два как устарел. Но судить только по этим двум параметрам будет ошибкой. По факту это мощный игровой мобильник на Snapdragon 845 с 8GB ОЗУ, батареей на 4000 mAh с wireless charging. Like all Razer products it got colorful RGB-logo Chroma.

In the smartphone of this level I would like to see better camera, but still, it's a gaming device, not a camera phone, so expect it a masterpiece photo is not necessary. The emphasis is on productive iron and the refresh rate of the display – here it reaches 120 Hz.
