The best Chinese smartphones over the 600 euros
HUAWEI P20 PRO
Let's start with Huawei P20 Pro, one of the top of the "mainstream" range that most convinced in this part of the 2018. Starting from the aesthetic factor, especially in its flashy Twilight coloring, with a glass body that conceals a capacious 4000 mAh battery. The performance is not a problem, then, thanks to the Kirin 970 combined with 6 GB of RAM and the Mali-G71 GPU.
But the real strength is the photographic sector, given that we are facing the first smartphone in the world to integrate one triple camera with artificial intelligence functionality. The triple sensor allows to obtain, among other things, a truly convincing 5X hybrid zoom. In addition, AIS stabilization ensures extremely stable and fluid video.
XIAOMI MI 8 EXPLORER EDITION
A highly anticipated device on the market is without a doubt the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition. The top of the range is immediately presented in a particular and unique, since the glass shell has been made transparent, thus giving way to observe the (fake) components placed below, the battery and so on. But the news does not end here, because the Explorer Edition also boasts a fingerprint sensor in the display.
The sensor thus joins the 3D facial release system integrated into the notch on the front of the device. Being the Xiaomi flagship, the company has also focused heavily on power, integrating Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 together with the Adreno 630 GPU, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory UFS 2.1.
OPPO FIND X
If we were to give a prize to the most pioneering smartphone so far seen in this year, this would go toOPPO Find X. After years of absence, the Asian brand finally surprised everyone by presenting a real flagship with cutting-edge technologies. The front part, almost totally full screen, hides a sliding mechanism that detects the front and back photographic compartment.
And it is the selfie camera that manages the 3D facial release, thanks to the hardware compartment used to scan the face through infrared and projection of points of light. Just wake up the display to start the automatic mechanism, which reads the face and unlocks the smartphone in a fraction of a second. All of this is supported by the Snapdragon 845, flanked by 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of fast storage.
VIVO NEX S
Always to stay in the BBK house, the Vivo NEX S Ultimate it is also a cutting-edge telephone, similarly to the OPPO home terminal. In fact, even here we have a selfie camera pop-up, which comes out quickly when you go to open the camera (even with third-party apps). The release, however, is managed by the fingerprint sensor in the display, thanks to the Super AMOLED technology adopted here.
Needless to say, even here we find it Snapdragon 845, 10 nm chipset with octa-core CPU at 2.8 GHz. The graphics part is managed by the powerful Adreno 630, with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB XFS 2.1 storage memories. There is a dual 12 + 5 mega-pixel camera with optical stabilization, as well as a large 4000 mAh battery.
HUAWEI MATE 20
If the P20 Pro is a little tight, here comes Huawei Mate 20. It is the range basis of the brand's new phablet family - even if it is reductive to call it that - with a strong propensity for the multimedia sector and performance. The detractors of the notch were sharpened by the presence of a really cultured notch contained in order to maximize the experience of the display.
No problem even for the most demanding users thanks to the Kirin 980 processor that guarantees the top in terms of brute power. The photographic sector is very good with well 3 rear chambers that can boast of being co-engineered with LEICA.
HUAWEI MATE 20 PRO
Take everything we've just said on Huawei Mate 20, but add the fingerprint sensor below the display, face release - with appropriate sensors - and an even more powerful camera, and here's Hauwei Mate 20 Pro. It's without a doubt that the best of the brand's technology has to offer.
The OLED display from 6,39 inches heads on the front and gives way to the body entirely in glass, which also allows you to take advantage of wireless charging and can also charge other smartphones. A device that seems studied in every detail and that will - or rather will - undoubtedly amaze.
OnePlus 6T it is the natural evolution of the OnePlus 6. This smartphone is distinguished from the predecessor by the presence of a large display from 6.41 inches with notch to drop. The panel is an Optic AMOLED unit with Full HD + resolution. Under the body, made of glass, we find a Qualcomm processor Snapdragon 845assisted by 6 / 8 GB of RAM and 128 / 256 GB internal memory that can not be expanded.
