Our top opens Xiaomi Redmi Note 10s. The model is a modification of Redmi 10. It is a familiar practice when a smartphone with incomplete functionality enters the market and after a while modifications of this model come out. Let’s start with design. The back of the smartphone is made of glossy plastic, the front panel that protects the screen is made of Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

In fourth place Xiaomi Redmi 9t. Smartphone has quite attractive characteristics for a low price — 13,000 rubles, and which ones — we will now consider. The design, build quality and materials are excellent, the smartphone is made of plastic, the back of the smartphone is matte, with a corrugated surface, so the phone fits well in the hand and does not get dirty. The front panel is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3the diagonal is 6.53 inches, the display occupies 83% of the front panel. The volume buttons and the fingerprint are located on the right side edge. On the left side there is a SIM card tray, on the top side there is a speaker, an audio jack, a microphone, on the bottom side there is a USB connector, a speaker and a microphone.

The main camera module received a 48-pixel resolution with f / 1.8 aperturewhile the photos on the main module are of very good quality both during the day and at night. The second module received an 8-pixel resolution, and the third and fourth camera modules received a resolution of 2 pixels.. On the front panel is an 8-pixel front camera with f / 2.0 aperture. The battery in Redmi 9t, unlike Redmi Note 10s, which I talked about earlier, was set to 6000 mAh. But the power consumption of this smartphone is higher than that of POCO M3, which uses the same 6000 mAh battery.

Redmi 9t uses Snapdragon 662 processor. You can’t call this chipset a gaming one, but if you take into account its cost, it works 100%, the same chipset is installed on POCO M3, which is also included in this TOP. Snapdragon 662 is manufactured on 11nm process technology and contains 8 Kryo 260 cores. The processor part is divided into 2 clusters: 4 productive Cortex-A73 cores with a frequency of up to 2 GHz and four energy-efficient Cortex-53 cores with a frequency of up to 1.8 GHz. Chipset includes Andreno 663 graphics. The interface works smartly, there are very few slowdowns, but they do happen. If you play games like Pubg, it can only run on low graphics settings. Redmi 9t received a 6.13-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2040×1080 pixels, that is, Full HD, and an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9. Its density is not higher than 400 dpi.

Pros:
  • There is NFS.
  • Good autonomy.
  • Full HD screen.
Minuses:
  • Weak processor.
  • There is no notification indicator.
  • On a sunny day, the screen is dim.

In terms of characteristics, it is similar to POCO M3, but their main difference is the design. In this price range, this is one of the best smartphones: having studied the reviews, it is safe to say that it was warmly received by users.

Top three opens Xiaomi POCO M3. The POCO M3 is a controversial model in terms of whether it is worth buying, which has many compromises, but considering the company’s previous models, the device’s features, as well as the price, this is one of the best gadgets on the Market. The smartphone looks unique due to the camera block with a large brand name in the corner. The back cover is made of plastic, the texture is made «under the skin», thanks to this solution, the back panel is almost not dirty, it feels good in the hand. On the right side face there is a fingerprint scanner, it was combined with a power button and a volume button, on the left — a tray for a SIM card. On the bottom side are USB Type-C, a microphone and a speaker, on the top — a microphone, a 3.5 mm jack, a speaker, and an infrared port for controlling household appliances.

The battery is the pride of this model. 6000 mAh battery — it lasts for 2-3 days, given that it has a Full HD + screen, which consumes a lot of power. A 6.53-inch IPS LCD display is installed. Resolution — 2340×1080 pixels (Full HD +), this is a serious advantage among its competitors. The model gives a good performance. Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chipset made on 11nm process technologywhich is enough for a comfortable game even in very demanding games.

POCO M3 received a triple camera, in which the main photo sensor has a resolution of 48 megapixels. Supports autofocus and has an aperture of f / 1.79. The sensor uses pixel reservation by default, resulting in 12 MP, you can also shoot at 48 MP. The maximum available resolution is 1080 p at 30 fps, unfortunately, there is no optical stabilization. There is no wide angle shot. A special sensor for macro photography and a sensor for recognizing the depth of field are installed, both at 2 megapixels.

Pros:
  • Unusual design.
  • Fast charging available.
  • Good autonomy.
Minuses:
  • One of the most significant is the lack of NFS.
  • Poor video quality and poor camera functionality.
  • Also, users have noticed a long charge.

Should I take this model? It is definitely worth the money: its price is 13,000 rubles. POCO M3 and Redmi 9t are very similar in terms of technical specifications, and in terms of price, they are plus or minus the same.

Characteristics
  • Screen: 6.53″ (2340×1080) 60Hz
  • 4 cameras: 13 MP, 8 MP, 5 MP, 2 MP
  • battery: 5020 mAh
  • Processor: MediaTek Helio G80
  • operating system: Android 10
  • wireless interfaces: Bluetooth, infrared port (IRDA), Wi-Fi

The second line is occupied by Xiaomi Redmi 9. The smartphone was introduced in the summer of 2020, but still remains relevant and popular among users. The back panel is plastic and rough, so the body of the phone is not so dirty, it does not leave fingerprints. The manufacturer placed the camera block in the middle, which can not be called convenient: as users say, when shooting, the finger touches one of the cameras. Like on many Xiaomi models, the lock and volume buttons are on the right side, and on the left side there is a SIM card tray. The fingerprint scanner is visually attached to the camera block. On the upper side there is an infrared port and an auxiliary microphone, on the lower side there are USB Type-C, a microphone, a speaker and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The smartphone turned out to be very large, you need to get used to its size.

There are 4 lenses on the back side, no telephoto lens. But of the four lenses, only two work fully: one is a full-fledged 13 MP, and one is an 8 MP ultra-wide, the other two are with minimum parameters (2 and 5 MP f / 2.4): one is for macro photography, the second is for estimating the depth of field . Screen resolution — 2340 × 1080 pixels at 6.13 inches of the screen, this is enough to not see the pixels. Manufacturing technology — IPS, thanks to this there are no problems with colors and viewing angles. But there are problems with brightness: on a sunny day, the screen looks dark, which causes discomfort. But in general, there are no problems with screen lighting.

The smartphone has a MediaTek Helio G80 processor manufactured in 12-nanometer production and has an 8-core processor divided into two clusters. One of them has two productive Cortex-A75 cores with a frequency of no higher than 2 GHz, the other one has 6 economical Cortex-A55 cores up to 1.8 GHz. If necessary, all 8 cores are activated simultaneously. In everyday use, the phone does not slow down, it works smartly. The 5020 mAh battery usually lasts for 1-2 days, supports 18W fast charging. But the manufacturer equips it with a 10W charger, which is strange.

Pros:
  • Good autonomy, the phone can work up to 2 days.
  • Photo quality.
  • Performance.
  • There is NFS.
Minuses:
  • The size, the smartphone is very large and thick, you need to get used to it.
  • The location of the fingerprint scanner in the camera block, as the finger touches the camera. It would be more rational to place it in the phone’s lock button, as was done in POCO M3.
  • Poor video quality.

Price — 14,000 rubles. Users fell in love with this model, because this smartphone is in 2nd place in the TOP. Decent smartphone in the mid-range category. Of course, Redmi 9s is better in some ways, but it is also more expensive, and in terms of price-quality ratio, I consider Redmi 9 to be one of the best.

16 990 rub.

Characteristics
  • Screen: 6.67″ (2400×1080) 120Hz
  • 4 cameras: 64 MP, 13 MP, 2 MP, 2 MP
  • battery: 5160 mAh
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G
  • operating system: Android 10
  • wireless interfaces: NFC, Bluetooth, infrared port (IRDA), Wi-Fi

So we have reached the first place of our Xiaomi POCO X3 rating. The design is impeccable: the back panel is made of plastic, which shimmers, looks spectacular, at first glance it may seem that it is made of glass. The shape of the camera block is rounded on the sides, located in the middle of the rear panel. Not everyone liked this design move, but many appreciated it positively. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 5. On the right side there is a lock button combined with a fingerprint and a volume control button, on the left side there is a SIM card tray. On the top edge there is a proximity sensor, an infrared port and a microphone, on the bottom there is a 3.5 mm headphone jack, USB Type-C, a microphone and a multimedia speaker.

The main camera is a Sony IMX686 module with a Quad Bayer matrix. By default, shooting is carried out at a resolution of 16 megapixels, but there is an opportunity to force a switch to an ultra-high resolution of 64 megapixels. The front camera has a resolution of 20 megapixels and a fixed focus. Judging by the characteristics, the smartphone has a decent camera, especially for a mid-budget, photos in good quality are obtained both in good light and at night.

This is the world’s first smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G processor.. The new chipset differs from the 720th version in more modern cores, as well as support for recording 4K video with active HDR. The difference in «parrots» is noticeable, but it cannot be called striking. The behavior of the Snapdragon 732G in games is also similar to its predecessor: the interface works smoothly and without jerks, the performance is almost at the maximum level. True, the performance is expected to depend on the specific release.

So, in Real Racing 3, the frame rate almost always rests on 60 fps — the ceiling for the processor. There is no overheating. Switching to PUBG, we get the following results: at high settings, stable 30 fps with rare drawdowns for a couple of frames. CPU usage averages 34%. Autonomy is good, but it could be better. A 5160 mAh battery is installed, this is enough for 1-2 days with an average workload. The manufacturer installed a display based on an IPS matrix, it covers 100% of the sRGB range. Screen resolution — 1080×2400 pixels, pixel density of 399 ppi produces a clear picture.

Pros:
  • Interesting design.
  • Multifunction camera.
  • The latest processor.
Minuses:
  • Vibration of the back cover with the sound of the speaker.
  • Phone weight.
  • Case size — the smartphone does not fit in the palm of your hand.

A model with an interesting design, pleasant technical characteristics and an equally pleasant price tag of 21,000 rubles. POCO X3 rightfully takes the first place. When comparing this phone with its competitors such as Redmi 9, POCO M3 and others, the choice is clear.
