Since the devices in the price category “20 thousand rubles” have not yet reached the flagships, but they are clearly ahead of the “average ones” - the choice is sometimes difficult, that's why I want to help you decide.
Next, under the cut!
1. Apple iPhone 5C
A little cheaper than their competitors iPhone 5c, last year’s version from Apple, which was supposed to be a budget hit for young people. However, this did not happen, the plastic case scared off buyers, and the price difference between the premium 5S and plastic 5C was not so big as to change its mind. Now, when the price has dropped to about 18 thousand rubles, the option has become quite interesting for those who want to "touch" the brainchild of Apple - iOS, without buying a premium smartphone. The smartphone will be a great gift for young people, because it emphasizes the status and has a fairly good camera (both main and front). Consider the technical characteristics:
- 4-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1136x640
- Apple A6 processor
- Video Accelerator: PowerVR SGX 543 MP3
- 8 GB of internal and 1 GB of operational
- The battery capacity of 1440 mAh (which is not very much, and it’s not enough for a day)
- The amount of RAM (and I do not need here about iOS optimization)
Price: 16500-21000 p.
2. Samsung Galaxy S4
Last year's Samsung flagship is still relevant, especially at a price of 15-20 thousand rubles. Thin, with narrow frames, with a removable back cover and a removable battery, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is a great smartphone for its money. The functionality here is enough for everyone:
- 13MP camera
- Android 4.4 (I think that updating to Lollipop will not be long in coming)
- Different versions of processors, personally in our city, mainly, the version with Snapdragon 600 is for sale.
- Video accelerator Andreno 320
- 2 gigabytes of RAM.
- The screen in the device is 5 inches, with a resolution of 1080x1920 with a pixel density of 441.
- The battery here is appropriate - 2600 mAh.
- Built-in memory - 16 GB
-Processor (for example, the next bidder is newer at the same price)
Price: 14000-22000 p.
3.Sony Xperia Z1
Many people know that Sony’s skate is moisture-proof devices with a cool proprietary design and good technical characteristics. Xperia Z1 was no exception - a glass candy bar with a round button on its side and an excellent camera at a price of 19990 is now sold in most stores. Different colors can be a decisive argument when buying, and a 20.7 megapixel camera is ready to compete for the title of camera phone. Support for most games and applications, as well as their normal operation, is provided by:
- Snapdragon 800 processor.
- 2 GB RAM
- Andreno 330
- 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1920x1080
-Updates (Sony’s plans to upgrade its devices to Android 5th are already known; Xperia Z1, of course, is on the list)
- The back glass panel may be scratched
Price: 15000-21000 p.
4.Nokia Lumia 830
The last smartphone for today will be a thin smartphone from Microsoft, focused on photography. Nokia Lumia 830 can offer us a 5-inch IPS screen, a 10-megapixel camera with stabilization system and ZEISS optics and Windows Phone 8.1. As you know, for the stable operation of most applications on Windows Phone 8.1 you do not need the most powerful processors and gigabytes of RAM, which was used by the guys from Microsoft - they obviously saved on hardware, for the 20 thousandth Snapdragon 410 device, as I believe, not acceptable as 1 GB of RAM. Further, I do not consider it necessary to describe the technical specifications.
- RAM capacity
Price: 16000-20000 p.
5.Google Nexus 5
A sixteen gigabyte version of Google’s smartphone with official support, which recently became last year’s, can now be purchased at prices ranging from 13,300 to 19,000 p. Owners of this wonderful device can now make the latest version of Android - Lollipop, which is undoubtedly a plus. Smooth work will be accompanied by:
- Powerful Snapdragon 800
- Standard 2 gigabytes of RAM.
- 2300 mAh battery
6. LG G2
Last year’s flagship from LG with the simple name G2 also has the right to be on this list, because good characteristics here are combined with a good price. A large 5.2-inch screen, a 13-megapixel main camera and a 3000 mAh battery will not let you get bored on a trip.
Responsible for minimizing lags and freezes in LG G2 will be:
- Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800
- Andreno 330
- 2 GB RAM
For me personally, the ideal option from the above would be Nexus 5, because It combines both a good processor and design. and support. If you are above all the status - the ideal option for you would be the iPhone 5C. The Lumia 830 would only suit Windows Phone enthusiasts, and Sony Xperia Z1 photographers. Choose the perfect option for you - is no longer in my capabilities, you decide!
