Shopping Guide and Deals : We have selected the best smartphonesbetween € 200 and € 300. Performance models that offer a good camera and a good screen, mostly in a premium design, while maintaining an unbeatable value for money.
Shopping Guide and Deals : Our guide to buying the best smartphones between 200 euros and 300 euros . More expensive models than those proposed in our guide of the best smartphones to less than 200 € but which keep a super quality-price ratio. These smartphones offer both a quality screen, a camera worthy of the name and performance high enough to perform most common tasks.
In the case of the Pocophone F1, we even have a Snapdragon 845 in the bowels, to enjoy performance equivalent to the most high-end smartphones. These models will therefore be suitable for anyone looking for a quality smartphone offering performance close to or even equivalent to that of a high-end but not necessarily ruin.
Shopping Guide and Deals : The Pocophone F1 is simply – and by far – what you will find more powerful ur the market at this price. Behind its 6.18 “IPS LCD screen (1080 x 2246), hides indeed a Snapdragon 845 – you read correctly, it’s the same as found on smartphones flirting with 1000 euros! This power is supported by 6GB of RAM for 64GB or 128GB of storage or 8GB of RAM for 256GB. As a bonus we have a 12 + 5 Mpx dual main photo sensor, a 20 Mpx selfie sensor, and a generous 4000 mAh battery. With of course a USB connection type C (USB 1.1). How is it possible ? Do not fuss: we have a plastic design, a glass Gorilla Glass whose version is unknown, no wireless charging and no resistance to water. Geekbench gives him a score of 2467 in single core and 9081 in multi core, and Antutu a 256 805 which sets the bar very high.
Shopping Guide and Deals : Poco is a subsidiary of Xiaomi, while we propose the manufacturer? The Mi 8 SE is an excellent alternative, always very powerful although we have a Snapdragon 710 instead of the 845 (which we point out is an exception on the market). There are three variants 4 / 64GB, 6 / 64GB and 6 / 128GB. This small compromise on the SoC allows it to offer for the same price a Super AMOLED screen 5.88 “compatible HDR10 and DCI-P3 (1080 x 2244). Photo side, we are on the same specs as the Pocophone: double sensor 12 + 5 Mpx, selfie 20 Mpx. All of course with a USB type C (USB 1.1) and always a price of 300 euros. Geekbench gives him a score of 1832 in single core and 5728 in multicore, while Antutu gives him a score of 172,307 very correct.
After a mythical Redmi Note 5 and a Redmi Note 6 a little more forgettable, Xiaomi comes back with an incredible smartphone at the price-almost unbeatable value. Its 6.3-inch IPS LCD screen offers good viewing comfort for a smartphone at this price, while its imposing 4000 mAh battery guarantees excellent battery life.
Photo side, the double sensor 48 MP + 5 MP confirms that the Chinese manufacturer is constantly improving in this area, and the front camera 13 MP is rather a good job. Only small shadow on the board, the presence of a SoC Snapdragon 660 that begins to get older. But it is still quite functional and if you do not look for the best performance but a mobile comfort and practice that keeps you day, you’re dealing with a champion of the range.
Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2
Shopping Guide and Deals : The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space (expandable via microSD card). The display is provided by a 6.3 inch IPS LCD screen in 19: 9 format and FHD + 2280 x 1080 pixels resolution (body-screen ratio of 90%, brightness 450 nits). If he only released Android Oreo, he was entitled to an update to Android 9 Pie since February 2019.
Photo side, there is a dual 12 MP Sony IMX 486 photo sensor with f / 1.8 + 5 MP aperture with depth of field measurement. At the front, we are entitled to a 13 MP f / 2.0 camera with LED flash and electronic stabilization of the 3-axis image. NFC and Bluetooth 5.0 are in the game. The fingerprint sensor is located on the back of the smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy A8 2018: this mid-range suddenly becomes interesting
Shopping Guide and Deals : A little expensive at its release in early 2018, the smartphone is now worth a lot more. It stands out from the crowd thanks to its resolutely top-of-the-range design, Galaxy S9 or Note 9, with a beautiful Infinity Display, its record autonomy (as always on this range), its powerful speaker, its powerful camera and the fluidity of its Samsung Experience interface. It is available around € 265 .
Shopping Guide and Deals : The Honor 8X is first and foremost an immense 6.5 “FullView (2340 × 1080), and a very premium design that evokes the Huawei P20. Less powerful than the latter, they still ship a Kirin 710 – a competitor of Snapdragon 660 – octocore capable of delivering excellent performance, which is supported by 4 GB of RAM. It is rather good as a smartphone everyday thanks to its excellent double 20 + 20 MP photo sensor on the back, and 16 MP front. And its 3750 mAh battery that keeps the day without blinking. A pretty good mix of features for a price of just 250 € .
Asus Zenfone 5: a screen that is as intuitive as it is impressive
Shopping Guide and Deals : The Zenfone 5 sports a 19: 9 aspect ratio and FHD + quality. It ships the SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 636, coupled with 4 GB of RAM. There is 64 GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card. Just like on the majority of the latest Huawei smartphones, we find the artificial intelligence allowing among other things to automatically increase or slow down the pace of the processor.Finally, the photo part is provided by a dual main sensor 12MP + 8MP and an 8MP front sensor. Its 3300 mAh battery is compatible with fast charging thanks to BoostMaster technology. Everything runs on Android 8.0 Oreo.
Huawei Mate 20 Lite
Shopping Guide and Deals : The Lite version of the Huawei Mate 20 is certainly not as sexy or as powerful as the Pro variant or the standard model. With its Kirin 710, the Chinese smartphone enjoys honest performance, a modern design with fingerprint sensor on the back. Excellent mid-range, the Mate 20 Lite does not have to blush in the field of photography.
Huawei P Smart 2019
Shopping Guide and Deals : The Huawei P Smart 2019 is a fairly balanced phone and the price has dropped quickly, making it a good alternative for the budget. He fulfills all the missions entrusted to him as long as he is not asked too much. Its SoC Kirin 710 does not offer as many guarantees as a Snapdragon 710, but blaming it is a bit zealous given the price at which it is available today.
It is not against a great photophone, the device is struggling in low light conditions in particular. Level screen and design, nothing to say, it does the job perfectly.
Shopping Guide and Deals : The Nokia 7.1 was not far from being the best smartphone in its class. Its design is worthy of a high-end model, it is the best photophone at less than 350 euros, its screen is beautiful, and its fast charging system effective. Yes but here, Nokia and HMD have a little cut on costs by incorporating a processor too slow and a 3GB of RAM insufficient. Result, the Nokia 7.1 fishing performance and the overall experience punctuated by crashes and freezes can become annoying. Nevertheless, Android One, very light, allows to limit the negative effects of these weak performances. Proposed for € 279, an ODR of € 50 allows us to have it for € 229 only.
Its sober and elegant design could make it look like a more expensive smartphone. Especially when you know that its aluminum body is the result of a one-piece machining – a process that is completed in about 11 hours, luxury for a smartphone of this price. Side technical sheet, it loads a screen 5.5 inches Full HD, which covers a Snapdragon 660 powerful enough for the daily tasks. It can be found in two versions: 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage (expandable by microSDXC). And 4GB + 64GB of storage. This smartphone is sold under Android One with zero overlay. It is found around 230 € .
