Top 10 smartphones cheaper than 20 thousand rubles (2019)

Set a new ceiling on the price of the smartphones — Samsung Galaxy foldable Fold without the slightest twinge of conscience sold for 160 thousand rubles. Well, hundreds of thousands of iPhone 11 Pro Max already and did not cause any surprise. In these circumstances, the opportunity to buy a fully working smartphone less than 10 thousand rubles a little shocking. But in the range of 10-20 thousand rubles, it is already possible to find a smartphone that is not only positive and good in almost

all respects. Yes, of course, is that “almost” — but nevertheless. Go over available on the market today range, there is plenty to choose from.

Important note: all models presented in the main list, have NFC.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro

  • Operating system: Android 9 Pie.
  • Display: 6.53 inch, IPS, 2340 × 1080.
  • Platform: Mediatek Helio G90T: eight cores (2 × Cortex A76, 2,05 GHz + 6 × Cortex A55, 2.0 GHz).
  • Memory: 6/8 GB.
  • Flash memory: 64/128 GB.
  • Camera: 64 + 8 + 2 + 2 MP.
  • Dual SIM card, the second slot is connected with the connector for a memory card.
  • The fingerprint scanner.
  • Average price: 14 790 rubles for the version 6/64 GB, 16 000 rubles for the version 6/128 GB.

Why you should buy: there is everything (even NFC).

What can stop advertising in the OS; it looks better than it feels.

If last year our selection suddenly started not from Xiaomi (remember, there was ASUS), this is corny Taiwanese somehow slowly drained his superduty series Zenfone Max Pro (there is a feeling that generally slowly drained their smartphone division), but the kings of budget phones this year raised his head as high as possible.

Redmi Note 8 Pro, in fact, devoid of obvious shortcomings — he got even hitherto forbidden for Redmi NFC module, quadricamere with the main 64-megapixel module (as the flagship vivo NEX 3, for example), powerful hardware platform, superior to on the net performance of all direct competitors (even though it is Mediatek). In our framework (10 to 20 thousand rubles) is laid not only “grey” Redmi Note 8 Pro, but official. Not recommended this smartphone is that those who are afraid of large devices — it is really big and quite bulky. Well, for those who have some hostility to MIUI, especially stuffed with ads, as is customary in the series Redmi.

Alternatives: Xiaomi Mi A3. This is largely a moot gadget with a screen is low resolution, not too powerful, with frankly boring design, no NFC… But the low resolution screen is OLED, and that is causing some idiosyncrasy shell MIUI there is no — pure Android! Not so obvious as, for example, Mi 9 Lite or last year’s flagship Mi 8, but a very interesting alternative.

realme XT

  • Operating system: Android 9 Pie shell ColorOS.
  • Display: 6.4 inch, AMOLED, 2340 × 1080.
  • Platform: Qualcomm Snapdragon 712: eight cores (2 × Kryo 360 Gold, the 2.3 GHz and 6 × Kryo 360 Silver, 1.7 GHz).
  • RAM: 4/6/8 GB.
  • Flash memory: 64/128 GB.
  • Camera: 64 + 8 + 2 + 2 MP.
  • Dual SIM card, the second slot is connected with the connector for a memory card.
  • The fingerprint scanner.
  • Battery capacity: 4000 mA·h
  • Average price: 19 990 rubles for the version 8/128 GB.

Why buy: the AMOLED display, good camera, powerful hardware platform.

What can stop: ColorOS, the upper limit of the price range.

Now the concern BBK (vivo, OPPO, OnePlus) has its Redmi – brand-discount stores, which will account for a significant portion of sales. Originally created as a sub-brand OPPO realme very fast spins on the free trail and have come to the Russian market, impressing pricing.

Model XT has everything to compete with Redmi Note 8 Pro, and even something more: a large OLED display, a similar set of cameras (which, however, works slightly worse), a powerful hardware platform (slightly weaker, but Qualcomm), even the fingerprint scanner on the screen. Like all other people. And we are almost there but — unless that is not fully drained shell ColorOS (which, I note, in fairness, pretty quickly), but maybe a bit boring design, but not this ridicule is a smartphone with the same combination of price and performance.

Alternative: realme 5 Pro. A very similar suggestion, just 5 thousand cheaper without the OLED with a 48-megapixel main module in quadricamere. And the processor, by the way, is the same. In General, what to say, someone talks back to the face of Xiaomi in the coming age, in relations with which Huawei/Honor status “it’s complicated”, claims a lot.

Huawei smart P Z

  • Operating system: Android 9 Pie shell EMUI.
  • Display: 6.59 inch, IPS, 2340 × 1080.
  • Platform: HiSilicon Kirin 710F: eight cores (4 × ARM Cortex-A73 processor 2.2 GHz + 4 × ARM Cortex A53, frequency is 1.7 GHz).
  • RAM: 4 GB.
  • Flash memory: 64 GB.
  • Camera: 16+2 MP.
  • Dual SIM card, the second slot is connected with the connector for a memory card.
  • The fingerprint scanner.
  • Battery capacity: 4000 mA·h
  • Average price: 14 490 rubles.

Why you should buy: an interesting design, good camera, reasonable price, relic status.

What can stop: little memory; soiled plastic case; again, this is a “shovel“.

Huawei bends under sanctions, but continues to produce smartphones — and yet with full functionality and all Google services. Huawei smart P Z – one of the few who managed to get into (yet) the latest wave of licensing.

This is a very interesting gadget at a price of 15 thousand rubles, it offers a striking design, albeit with a plastic body, but with retractable front-facing camera. A rare case when a huge filling almost the entire front panel screen manufacturer has avoided the “monobrow” or “bullet holes”. All this is supported by screen 6.6 inch platform sane (but inferior used Redmi Note 8 Pro) power and very good rear camera (frontalka worse). This is also a very large smartphone, but it looks sleeker and brighter décor.

Alternative: Honor 9X. The easiest choice alternatives for the entire material. Honor 9X is the same Huawei smart P Z, but with an improved rear camera and for some reason the worst battery life. The Chinese company so bypasses the limitations of Google:– previously licensed sells smartphones under a new name — in Honor 9X software defined internal code Huawei smart P Z. the same focus, the company has done with Honor 20/Huawei nova 5T and obviously will try to do again — until you end up in any actual model.

Samsung Galaxy A50

  • Operating system: Android 9 Pie.
  • Display: 6.4 inch, AMOLED, 2340 × 1080.
  • Platform: Samsung Exynos 9610 (4 × ARM Cortex-A73, frequency 2.3 GHz + 4 × ARM Cortex-A53, frequency of 1.6 GHz).
  • RAM: 4/6 GB.
  • Flash memory: 64/128 GB.
  • Camera: 25 + 8 + 5 MP.
  • Dual SIM card, separate slot for a memory card.
  • The fingerprint scanner.
  • Battery capacity: 4000 mA / h
  • Average price: 16 000 to 19 990 rubles.

Why buy: fast (seemingly!) optics, AMOLED display, famous name brand.

What can stop: a kind of camera operation, non-ideal smoothness of operation.

You hear a strange sound? If the tectonic plates shifted, the continents are pushed, there is something very serious and unusual. It seems that Samsung released a really good smartphone okoloserdecna segment.

If displays are organic light-emitting diode has always been a feature of the company and dated (once) even in the most low-cost devices, it is good in principle, the hardware platform, fashionable design and triple-chamber — that is, all the signs of actual and real (not discounted for the A-brand) competitive smartphone is something unusual. No, no drawbacks, no cost — after all, despite aperture optics main camera, Galaxy A50 removes worse competitors, and CPU power is not enough to ensure smooth operation. But damn it, it’s a really good smartphone.

Alternative: Samsung Galaxy A60. No AMOLED screen, but without the hateful cutout instead of the hole in the corner, like the flagship Galaxy S10. A platform, incidentally, is no worse than Qualcomm Snapdragon 675.

TCL Plex

  • Operating system: Android 9 Pie with minimal changes.
  • Display: 6.53 inch, IPS, 2340 × 1080.
  • Platform: Qualcomm Snapdragon 675: eight cores (2 × Kryo 460 Gold, 2.2 GHz and 6 × Kryo 460 Silver, 1.7 GHz).
  • RAM: 6 GB.
  • Flash memory: 128 GB.
  • Camera: 48 + 16 + 2 MP.
  • Dual SIM card, the second slot is connected with the connector for a memory card.
  • The fingerprint scanner.
  • Battery capacity: 3820 mA⋅h
  • Average price: 16 990 rubles.

Why you should buy: the original brand, perfect set up screen, beautiful case color.

What can stop ordinary features, mediocre autonomy.

The TCL group, known for its TVs and the fact that he belongs to a once famous brand, Alcatel has finally entered the world market with their mobile — and the move is very interesting.

A delicious combination of exorbitant prices and characteristics in the manner of Xiaomi or realme he can not offer, but suddenly happy “European values”, even though purebred Chinese — neat design, well-tuned screen (even LCD, not OLED), high-quality processing of images coming from three of the rear cameras. Very nice smartphone for the originals, which can Shine very unusual inscription on the back cover of the gadget. Parallel — one of the best multimedia smartphone in this collection.

Alternative: Sony Xperia 10. Smartphone, specially created for the cinema with his screen format 21:9 — and is also the original choice, but it is suitable primarily for fans of the brand. Still, for competition even with the same TCL Plex “Imperii” neither the performance nor the camera nor the quality of the display settings. It is only superior for ease of handling — an extruded gadget is really comfortable to hold, the sound and behavior of the shell.

Nokia 7.2

  • Operating system: Android 9 Pie.
  • Display: 6.3 inch, IPS, 2340 × 1080.
  • Platform: Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 (eight cores Kryo 260 frequency up to 2.2 GHz).

  • Dual SIM card, the second slot is connected with the connector for a memory card.
  • The fingerprint scanner.
  • Battery capacity: 3500 mA / h
  • The average price of 17 990 rubles.

Why you should buy: elegant, pure Android, good camera.

What can stop: not the most powerful platform, newideas against the competitors, the combination of features and price.

The choice for lovers of the classics. Yes, it’s not the one Nokia, and hiding behind the European office of the Chinese, and something truly original they do not create, but make their smartphones simply and tastefully.

This is one of the most elegant gadgets in this list, with brushed back, neatly gathered in a circle with cameras and Android, besides receiving the updates in the forefront. But the noble modesty is also the case for the filling: Snapdragon 660 — not what you expect from a smartphone 18-20 thousand rubles, and 4/64 GB of memory is also not the ultimate dream, as you can see by looking at the rest of the devices in this collection.

Alternative: Nokia 6.2. Budget variation on the same theme — almost exactly the same externally, but received much more simple stuffing smartphone for those who have on hand 12-13 thousand, but who approach the Finno-Hong Kong design made a lasting impression.

moto G8 Plus

  • Operating system: Android 9 Pie.
  • Display: 6.3 inch, IPS, 2280 × 1080.
  • Platform: Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 (eight cores Kryo 260 frequency up to 2.2 GHz).
  • RAM: 4 GB.
  • Flash memory: 64 GB.

  • Dual SIM card, the second slot is connected with the connector for a memory card.
  • The fingerprint scanner.
  • Battery capacity: 4000 mA / h
  • Average price: 14 990 rubles.

Why to buy: pure Android, good camera, moisture proof.

What can stop: average filling (the smartphone not quick work elementary), banal design.

First Lenovo hurriedly left the Russian — Yes, in fact, with the global — smartphone market, and is planned to be returned once spent. And a vacuum: under the Motorola brand regularly are smartphones — and disappear somewhere. Nevertheless there are some interesting suggestions, such as both published this year smartphone the G Plus.

The most relevant — the G8 Plus – only is presented, and is a device that literally collected all the stamps on my smartphone in 2019: a triple from the 48-megapixel module, the platform Qualcomm middle class, glass case, front panel with cut-out… Attracted to this smartphone is rare for this price segment housing, pure Android, and the original mode of the video with improved stabilization, and you hold the smartphone vertically, and recorded the horizontal roller. How about this, Elon Musk?

Alternative: G7 Plus Moto. Presented in February, the smartphone now looks like the forerunner of the G8 Plus seems to be similar, but inferior for all characteristics. However, there are two but more distinctive and pleasing design with a round module back camera and optical stabilization in the camera. The last is a really cool smartphone for 19 thousand rubles… Yes, the forerunner of the now more expensive new items.

vivo Neo V17

  • Operating system: Android 9 Pie shell FunTouch.
  • Display: 6.38-inch, Super AMOLED, 2340 × 1080 pixels.
  • Platform: Mediatek MT6768: eight cores (2 × ARM Cortex A75, frequency 2.0 GHz + 6 × ARM Cortex A55, the frequency is 1.7 GHz).
  • RAM: 4 GB.
  • Flash memory: 128 GB.
  • Camera: 16 + 8 + 2 MP.
  • Dual SIM card, the second slot is connected with the connector for a memory card.
  • The fingerprint scanner on the screen.
  • Battery capacity: 4500 mAh.
  • Average price: 17 990 rubles.

Why is worth buying: on-screen scanner, AMOLED screen, great battery life.

What can stop the curve Russification of the shell, not too powerful hardware platform, the middle chamber.

The company vivo says that it was created by Neo V17 with an eye to the Russian market. Really nothing specific Russian in it could not be worked out, but some key points he clearly feels: a lot of internal memory, a very solid battery (4500 mAh), which also lasts for a long time due to the use of AMOLED display and not very powerful hardware platform.

The downside is clear: Mediatek MT6768 — not the processor, which in the smartphone want to brag. In addition, the RAM not so much — 4 GB. But overall, this is one of the most interesting combination of features the smartphone — not “all at once” in the manner of Redmi or realme, but with very bright features (organic led display, on-screen scanner, an unusual coating on the back panel), is relatively compact and will work for a long time on a single charge.

Alternative: Oppo A9 (2020). Smartphone from another company belonging to the concern in BBK, which is exactly udelat vivo V17 Neo for autonomy — the battery at 5000 mA-hours it combines with HD display and more weak, that is energy efficient, platform-repudiation Qualcomm (Snapdragon is 665). Cons already indicated, but here quadricamere with the main module 48 megapixels, and the shell more pleasant — ColorOS at the moment is clearly superior to FunTouch OS.

Apple iPhone SE

  • Operating system: iOS.
  • Display: 4 inch IPS, 1136 × 640.
  • Platform: Apple A7 (dual core Apple Cyclon, frequency 1.3 GHz).
  • RAM: 1 GB.
  • Flash memory: 16/32/64 GB.
  • Camera: 8 MP.
  • One SIM card.
  • The fingerprint scanner.
  • Battery capacity: 1560 mAh.
  • Average price: 19 990 rubles.

Why to buy: iOS, compactness.

What can stop: this is an outdated smartphone.

Here everything is simple: it is the only option to buy a smartphone with iOS on Board, not pre — owned, not owner, not restored, and from inventory. The meaningfulness of this course is not so much the smartphone still for three years, and iron is rapidly becoming obsolete (although still pulls a fresh version of OSes), but for some reason still there: fans really compact smartphones still remain, and they have almost no reasons for joy. This is one of the last.

Alternative: used iPhone, discount iPhone, refurbished iPhone. Time is running out and Apple gadgets only become more expensive.

ZTE Axon M

  • Operating system: Android 7.1 with a proprietary shell.
  • Display: two screen at 5.2 inches, IPS, 1920 × 1080.
  • Platform: Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 (two cores Kryo, frequency of 2.35 GHz + two cores Kryo, frequency of 1.36 GHz).
  • RAM: 4 GB.
  • Flash memory: 64 GB.
  • Camera: 20 MP.
  • Dual SIM card, separate slot for a memory card.
  • The fingerprint scanner.
  • Battery capacity: 3180 mAh.
  • Average price: 14 990 rubles.

Why you should buy this game.

What can stop: it is a game, a legacy game.

And finally — the weird thing is that you can buy for the money. A smartphone that could turn into a tablet for two years before the Samsung Galaxy Fold, and currently is ten times cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Fold. And Yes, it is officially available in the Russian retail, albeit only in one shop — I’m shocked by this fact.

Yes, this is a very strange smartphone, but it’s not as bad as it may seem, for my money, he will provide a very decent performance, still it has the flagship platform, even three years ago. Folded is heavy and thick, but sane size smartphone with normal functionality. In the spread — Yes, ekhm, the tablet is not a “wrinkle”, and a strip along the center of the screen. But no one will surpass you in the quest for originality.

Alternative: Hisense A6. It’s hard to believe, but in 2019 there is YotaPhone — with more or less relevant characteristics and are relatively inexpensive. If you are inexorably drawn to the oddities, but the option with ZTE Axon M even too radical for you.
