The Four Best Chinese Smartphone in the market
XiaomiRedmi Note 4X
Surely not the best you can find in the Android catalog, but if you want a well-built and well-compensated smartphone at a price of laughter, your choice is clear: this Redmi Note 4X is probably the best mid-range/economy you can buy.
It has a 5.5-inch FullHD screen with IPS technology, a Snapdragon 625 chipset from Qualcomm and up to 4 GB of RAM that will ensure you never have room for more and more applications in the background. Its 64 GB of storage is more than enough, but can be extended, and its battery with 4,100 mAh offers a more than generous capacity.
For the multimedia part, we will find a 13 megapixel camera of Sony origin with aperture f / 2.0 and LED flash, along with another 5 MP front sensor. Undoubtedly one of the best options, which adds double SIM and you can unlock with your fingerprint reader.
The smartphone with Android One of Xiaomi, the star of the international markets. Little is left to say about this XiaomiMi A1 that has not been said, and that surely this terminal is the best thing that has happened to the brand since its birth.
The XiaomiMi A1 has placed them on the world board playing with the same cards as Google itself, finally offering Android in its purest experience and without the intrusive, though beautiful and functional, MIUI customization.
The construction is metallic and already known, its hardware also: 5.5-inch screen and FullHD resolution, Snapdragon 625 chipset, 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of internal storage that we can expand, adding a fingerprint reader and a battery of 3.080 mAh.
The remarkable part is in its dual rear camera with two 12 megapixel sensors capable of taking portraits with a bokeh effect, along with a 5 MP front sensor. It also has 4K video capture and slow motion at 120fps. Its connectivity is also complete to LTE with dual SIM, and has a global model with a variety of supported LTE networks.
Raising slightly the bar we will find the Honor 7X, which we will soon be able to buy in red in a limited edition and that is without a doubt the cheap Chinese smartphones that Huawei has in the mid-range economic range, this time going up to approximately 280 euros.
It is a terminal built with current design and quality materials, in 18: 9 format, certified for water resistance and featuring metal and glass. It has a panel of 5.93 inches and FullHD + resolution, animated this time by a chipset of the house, specifically the HiSilicon Kirin 659.
The RAM is 4 GB, with another 32 GB for expandable internal storage, and there is no missing the fingerprint reader or a dual 16-megapixel rear camera with aperture f/2.2 along with another 2 MP sensor for effects of blur and bokeh. On the front, we have another 8-megapixel sensor.
A battery of 3,340 mAh gives power to the whole, with a 4G connectivity and support for active dual SIM that hallmark of the majority of Chinese manufacturers.
LeEco Le Pro 3
The big surprise of the list, and probably the most unknown of the four devices, will be this LeEco Le Pro 3 that was once high-end, and that still continues to perform at a high level among the mid-range, which has become one of the best Chinese android phones.
Not that it is below 200 euros, but is closer to 100, and offers a 5.5-inch screen with FullHD resolution protected by a Gorilla Glass crystal that is set in a fully metallic body.
Its hardware platform is composed of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset with 4 GB of RAM and other 32 GB of expandable internal storage, and there is no missing the finger reader, USB Type-C connector or a generous battery of up to 4,070 mAh.
Its main camera is 16 megapixels with aperture f/2.0 and LED flash, it is capable of recording in 4K resolution and in slow motion at 120 fps, and it also has another 8-megapixel sensor for the front. And it also has something that others do not have, because it is capable of connecting to LTE networks with active dual SIM in band 20, something that we will appreciate in the markets.
A good experience does not involve spending an eye of the face
As you have seen, and as GizChina taught us, you do not need to spend a fortune to get a good user experience, as the power of the average and economic ranges increasingly shortens its distance with the high range, as well as the constructions and materials, which increasingly have higher quality in all price ranges.
Nowadays it is very easy to find Chinese smartphone brands that will make you happy for very contained prices, so take a good look because in the market there is much more to choose from many different manufacturers.
