What are the best smartphones on the Chinese market? Which phones can do it bigger, better, faster – and cheaper? Those are only a few of the questions we’d like to get behind in this category. Ranging from Xiaomi to Leagoo, Doogee, OnePlus and others: If it’s from China and able to make phone calls, we want to write about it!

Honor Google

After the trade dispute between Huawei and the US, not only Huawei suffered, but also the subsidiary Honor. However, Huawei sold the budget subsidiary in November, and since then there has been some guesswork as to how Honor will continue. Sources close to the company now say that Honor is planning its “comeback” in the spring.

Xiaomi Mi 11 camera

The Mi series is Xiaomi’s flagship series, which celebrated an anniversary in China in 2020 with the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro and Mi 10 Ultra. Now, the brand-new Xiaomi Mi 11 was unveiled shortly before the end of the year. The flagship is the logical consequence of the predecessor, which is not only an advantage, as our review shows. Should you rather wait for the Pro version?

Redmi 9T smartphone

In addition to the new Redmi Note 9T, Xiaomi has also introduced another budget smartphone, which brings the current Redmi generation to eight devices. The Redmi 9T surprises with a Snapdragon processor, which sets it apart from the other Redmi phones. However, it also reminds us strongly of the POCO M3. Where are the differences?

If one were to take a critical tone, one could say that Xiaomi’s subsidiary now stands for the amazing value for money for which Xiaomi was once known. No matter what you want to call it, the brand new POCO M3 apparently wants to be the best smartphone up to $150. And the signs are damn good.

Royole FlexPai 2 Foldable Smartphone

The Royole Flexpai was the first smartphone with a folding display at the end of 2018. It served as a prototype, was therefore very expensive and not intended for mass production. But it did spark this movement and forced major manufacturers like Samsung and Huawei to introduce their foldable smartphones. Now the manufacturer has introduced its successor: the Royole FlexPai 2.

POCO X3 NFC Smartphone display

With the release of the POCO F2 Pro, the Xiaomi sub-brand POCO has made it clear where the journey is headed: there will be several POCO smartphones. While the Indian market was already being supplied with a POCO X2 and a POCO M2 Pro, things were quiet in Europe next to the flagship. But now there is the first middle class smartphone: the POCO X3 NFC.
