The new realities of the electronics market: some android-smartphone to choose a low-cost segment –





The last time we in the current economic situation, рассматривали best smartphones of the price range of 20-30 thousand rubles. Until recently, the vast majority of champions even when coming in the official retail cost albeit symbolically, but less than thirty thousand. And on the “gray” market for the money it was and did expanse.

Unfortunately, now it is in the best case, the upper part of the middle segment. For 20 000 now not even the most well-known manufacturers offer quite communicating devices. But in this price range you can still find at least proshlo- or pozaproshlogodnie top smartphones.

And what about the cheaper segments? Intermediate range of 10 to 20 thousand rubles to leave a little later, but for now, consider perhaps the most interesting for the domestic buyer range 7 000-10 000. Of course, there is also much higher prices to the naked eye. And if the last time we could still be found in this segment of the many interesting models, but now … And yet, let’s deal.



ASUS Zenfone 5

One of the most interesting novelties of the 2014 budget smartphone segment has become ASUS Zenfone 5. This model is much praised, even more amazed at the excellent balance of technical parameters as well as the combination of price, performance, appearance and brand. Who else could offer it all for 7000 rubles?

Today, the cost ASUS Zenfone 5 increased to 9,500 rubles in the cheapest stores, but the competition smartphone still looks very attractive. In his five-inch HD-asset screen, dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 processor with a frequency of 1.6 GHz, graphics module PowerVR SGX 544MP2, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of permanent and card slot microSD.

Like a year ago, ASUS Zenfone 5 is far from being a leader of the characteristics, but its capacity is sufficient for most tasks. During the обзора we noted the high quality of the display can be flexibly configured, functional firmware and good build.

Lenovo P780 model is still very popular to this day. In fact, it is one of the most popular smartphones Chinese company in the segment to 10 000, although in some stores it is already out of the sale. This is not surprising, because in the summer he will be for two years.

Lenovo P780 is a typical old middling. It set a five-inch IPS-display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, quad-core processor Mediatek MT6589 (Cortex-A7, 1.2 GHz) with integrated graphics PowerVR SGX544, 1 GB of RAM and 4 or 8 GB of permanent memory. Has a slot for microSD cards up to 32 GB.

The main advantage of Lenovo P780 is a solid battery capacity of 4000 mAh. It allows to utter 43 hours in 2G (up to 25 hours in 3G). Someone can attract back metal roof, but other visual benefits from Lenovo P780 is not.

Today, the cost of Lenovo P780 starts with 9000 rubles. Given the impressive autonomy is a reasonable fee, although performance may be higher. More recently, a 10-000 can be purchased more recent models Lenovo S860 and Lenovo S856, but today the price tag has grown substantially.

Lenovo Vibe X

Lenovo Vibe X is a representative of the “old guard”: it was announced back in 2013, when a substantial devaluation of the ruble has no one thought. It is logical to assume that today the price of this smartphone has increased markedly. But in this case, a paradoxical situation: he even became available.

In April last year we published a обзор Lenovo Vibe X . Then we recognized the device overrated: at a cost of about 15 000, it can not compete with more advanced players. However, it we noted some pros: nice appearance, small thickness (6.9 mm), an excellent five-inch display with a resolution of Full HD, high-quality camera resolution of 13 megapixels and good battery life in spite of the battery capacity 2000 mAh.

Among the disadvantages of Lenovo Vibe X can be noted only 16 GB of internal memory with no microSD card slot and a fairly simple quad-core processor Mediatek MT6589T with outdated graphics PowerVR SGX544MP. Because of them will have to forget about demanding games, especially here resolution Full HD.

 < P> Go back to the most interesting part of the description Lenovo Vibe X – price. Today, this model can be freely bought for 10,000 rubles, that is one and a half times cheaper than a year ago. This significantly increases the attractiveness of the device – still, such a combination of characteristics and, if not the most, but the novelty. Very interesting proposal.

Alcatel OneTouch Idol Alpha

Alcatel OneTouch Idol Alpha is one of those models that during the crisis almost no more expensive. On the one hand, it gives it a significant competitive advantage. On the other, during the прошлогоднего Review , we recognized this smartphone is quite interesting. Then the initial value was 11 000 rubles. Surprisingly, today Alcatel OneTouch Idol Alpha can be bought for 9,000 rubles, which makes it an attractive proposition.

In the Alcatel OneTouch Idol Alpha installed 4.7-inch HD-display and processor Mediatek MT6589, which we have already seen in th e Lenovo P780. Probably someone like the original design of the case: some items are made of metal, and the top and bottom set transparent inserts.

On the downside, Alcatel OneTouch Idol Alpha we have carried the brand back cover and lack of expandable memory: 16 GB user available only 12. Also, the manufacturer greedy on the 3.5 mm audio jack: for headphones have to use an adapter with microUSB, which is not always convenient .

Alcatel OneTouch Idol X

Even more interesting is older, but in due time the former flagship model Alcatel OneTouch – Idol X. She has repeatedly featured in our guides, so detailed list of its features will not.

In short, here a five-inch Full HD-display chipset MediaTek MT6589T, 2 GB of RAM, or a SIM card slot plus MicroSD, or two SIM (This configuration is called the 6043D and is much more common), as well as excellent light and compact body of practical materials. For his 9000 rubles now – one of the best offerings on the market, if you can find the remains.
