ByGB Blog Official 2016-11-07 3106

Back in the time people used to associate Chinese tech to garbage. But things have changed dramatically. Many people are now doing all possible to have access to Chinese technology and go through the hassle of importing smartphones from China. Are you among them? Here is a list of Top 10 phones that are really worth it.

1. OnePlus 3

The OnePlus 3 is another amazing smartphone from the Chinese company OnePlus. It's a little bit more expensive than its predecessor but it's still a ridiculous price considering the design, build and hardware on offer which matches rivals but also beats them in several areas. There's very little to dislike here unless you are addicted to expandable storage and waterproofing features.


2. Xiaomi Mi 5 and Mi 5 Pro

Xiaomi made a big splash at MWC 2016 with its new flagship Mi 5 series. These long awaited devices are currently confirmed for the Indian and Chinese markets but Xiaomi's Global VP said in an interview that Xiaomi has "other markets on their radar screen.

The design and specs of these two devices are impressive. The normal Mi 5 version has a 3D glass rear panel, 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage and 3 GB of RAM. The Pro version comes with a ceramic back, 128 GB of internal storage and 4 GB RAM. Both come with a Snapdragon 820 processor and a new 4-axis optical image stabilization system that wowed at MWC 2016. 

The incredible price of these devices is perhaps the most remarkable thing about them. The lowest cost (32 GB) version is set at $407.99. The 64 GB Mi 5 version is going to come in at $459.99 and the Mi 5 Pro at $515.99.


3. Huawei P9

The fourth model of the Huawei P series is dubbed the "Pocket DSLR". That's because the company partnered with German camera manufacturer Leica to make a device focused around photo capabilities. The smartphone has a dual camera system with two rear cameras.

Despite having a better camera and taking higher quality photos the device is still priced under its competitors. It's not a cheap Chinese phone but in general is not expensive at $559. And unlike other Chinese manufacturers, Huawei has a strong presence in the US.

The Huawei P9 comes with Android Marshmallow right out of the box. The HiSilicon Kirin 955 chipset is backed up with 3 GB RAM. The device has an internal memory capacity of 32 GB and can be expanded with the micro SD capabilities. The phone runs on a 3,000 mAh battery.
