MOTOROLA EDGE 20 LITE: OPTIMIZED AND WITH OLED SCREEN



Motorola’s Edge smartphone family is expanding and covering more price ranges. In this we find the Edge 20 model, the most interesting as regards the relationship between quality and price. It is characterized by a square design and a thickness of just 6.99 millimeters. This aesthetic makes the protrusion of the rear photographic compartment inevitable (108MP + 16MP + 5MP with 3x optical zoom) and the insertion of a 4000 mAh battery. The latter figure, given that it is Motorola, is not scary, thanks to their skill in optimizing consumption.

The whole is based on Stock-like Android and moved by the recent Snapdragon 778G SoC capable of guaranteeing excellent performance for the category, even in gaming. Among the technical specifications we also find a 6.67-inch OLED display with 144Hz refresh rate. It obviously supports the 5G connectivity and the photographic quality turns out to be very respectable. Too bad for the video recording that does not go beyond 4K at 30fps.

XIAOMI MI 11 LITE 5G: EXCELLENT MEDIUM-RANGE SMARTPHONE



The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite is available in two declinations, 4G is the best 5G, certainly more focused and more advisable, in this buying guide. The dimensions are certainly not small, but it has now become the norm. Despite this, the weight is significantly reduced and is pleasantly held in the hand, also thanks to the glass used for the back cover.

Among the strengths we find the 6.55-inch 90Hz AMOLED displaycapable of offering a high brightness, the autonomy of the 4250 mAh battery with fast charging and the overall performance of the device. In this regard, the processor could guarantee even higher performances, but it is as if Xiaomi had decided to limit them, perhaps to make the smartphone more balanced. The photographic sector is good and in line with its direct competitors. The Chinese brand has now become synonymous with guarantee and reliability. This Mi 11 Lite 5G absolutely keeps its promises.

Samsung updates its mid-range by presenting the new Galaxy A52s version, an evolution of the previous A52 and A52 5G from which it takes exactly everything except the processor.

The rest of the technical specifications include double stereo speakerthe audio jack, a water resistant shell and a 4,500 mAh battery capable of covering up to two real days of use.

The photographic sectordespite being identical to that of the models mentioned at the beginning, offers a slightly higher yield, especially in low light shots. We must also mention the connectivity, complete and capable of guaranteeing speeds closer to those offered by the top of the range. We recommend its purchase to anyone looking for one concrete, reliable and colorful smartphonegiven the different color variants available.

Among the best proposals in this price range we must absolutely include the Realme GT Master Edition. It is a smartphone made with intelligence, so it is not based on mere technical specifications, but aims to guarantee one excellent daily usability.

THE ALTERNATIVE REALME GT NEO2

We report it because the price is falling quickly and soon it will easily be under 300 euros, Realme GT Neo2 is a smartphone that for technical characteristics and positioning can only be gluttonous. The processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870, evolution of the 2020 top of the range and in some respects even better than the infamous Snapdragon 888 “oven”, it is then accompanied by 8 or 12 GB of RAM, 6.63 inch FullHD + display type Super AMOLED HDR10 +, NFC and 5G connectivity. But this device is not only a set of features, but also a pleasant product to use, with a great screenone software customization increasingly feature-richtidy, very fast and customizable in practically every aspect.

Realme GT Neo2 is therefore a smartphone that is difficult not to take into consideration, also seen the excellent relationship between quality and price. The compromises are few and mainly related to the photographic part, the only real point of distance compared to higher-end smartphones, also satisfying the multimedia sector thanks to the double stereo speaker, also the autonomy very well thanks to the 5000 mAh battery, also supported by the very fast 65 Watt recharge (0-100 in just over half an hour).

LITTLE F3: UPPER-END HARDWARE



Poco F3 is the ideal representative of the 2021 smartphone array with high-end hardware and some compromises that allow you to keep the price low.

It is a very different product from the other proposals, all balanced and conceived right away to center the needs of those who buy in the mid-range. POCO F3, on the other hand, is divisivefor this reason we have relegated it to (+1): it combines first-class performance with a truly subdued photographic sector, an excellent display and build quality with a proximity sensor that works rather badly.

Under 300 euros you cannot fail to take it into consideration, but a look at the review is a must in order not to have surprises.
