Therefore, Xiaomi has made a knight's move, and put the system in front of cameras on a retractable platform. Display the Mi 3 Mix is smooth and contains no foreign elements.

Mi Mix 3 – large phablet. Work with it with one hand is not easy, not to mention the fact to move the slider. Some users because of this, it seems inconvenient to use.

The rest is very balanced for middle-class with sufficient battery life and dual main camera. The processor, which in 2018 was breaking records in benchmarks, today, it is not top, but to obsolescence him away.

However, most users did not think to call such features disadvantages.

Именно с Mi 8 Pro Xiaomi начала покорять запад. Дебют оказался впечатляющим, а значительная доля успеха принадлежит дизайнерам. Mi 8 Pro имеет прозрачную заднюю крышку.  Его внутренние компоненты находятся на виду, эта деталь делает его намного интереснее новейших plamenov. Только по технической части Mi 8 Pro уже не блещет: процессор, камеры – все в нем неплохое, но не более. Про батарею тоже ничего особенного не сказать нельзя: 3000 mAh – мало, но не критично.

At the end of the collection, this model was because of the more significant shortcomings. Its display has a high brightness. Biometric security presented vnutrimyshecnam fingerprint scan is much slower than modern readers. The headphone output either. How serious this is, you decide.

In search of the perfect budget-take a look at the Redmi Note 7. He does not promise flagship of records, but some strengths he has.

Возьмем к примеру аккумулятор. Его емкость равняется 4000 mAh. Учитывая, что процессор здесь стоит не жадный, расход энергии будет весьма и весьма экономным.

With photo capabilities, the Redmi series has never been famous for, and even though the Redmi Note 7 uses a 48 MP sensor, hope for amazing quality or super intelligent processing is not necessary. As for shell, someone like MIUI, some don't, it's all a matter of taste. But what Xiaomi diligently stuffing it is definitely a minus.

Price: 5 990 rubles

Xiaomi Redmi 7A is the Lite version initially, a budget machine.

На фоне 6-дюймовых phabletов он кажется совсем крохотным. В некоторым смысле это плюс, ведь compact smartphones сегодня днем с огнем не сыскать. Батарея на 4000 mAh в компании с небольшим экраном и энергоэффективной начинкой обеспечивает продолжительное время работы: двое суток – вообще не вопрос.

But it is obvious that a complete set of relevant possibilities here and does not smell. No NFC sensor, that is, pay in stores this phone you can't. RAM little even at the maximum assembling, so about any multi-tasking question. But very economical and undemanding buyer, this phone may be a good option.

  • Is suitable for small hands.
  • Good battery.
  • Has слот для memory cards.
  • you Can put two SIM cards.

Weaknesses:

  • Little RAM.
