Which Android phone is better to buy after the iPhone


Before switching to the iPhone 12, I used Android for almost 10 years. As a rule, these were devices from the middle price segment for 25-35 thousand rubles, because, to be honest, I was sorry to dump more for a smartphone. In fact, it turned out that I was right. The iPhone turned out to be a good smartphone, but nothing more. Therefore, the thought occurred to me, and not to go back? But, if I do decide to switch to Android, which smartphone should I buy? Let’s try to figure it out together.

Do not misunderstand me. I have no complaints about Apple technology. I have been using iPads and Macs for many years, and sincerely believe that there are no better tablets and computers on the market, and they are worth paying for. But when it comes to smartphones, Android is still the best option for me. I talked about what I am missing in iOS in a separate article – read it if you are interested. Now let’s dwell on the phones that can be bought after the iPhone.

Best Budget Android Phone

Let’s start with something simpler. The Poco M3 Pro 5G is, in my opinion, great for switching over from the iPhone. It doesn’t matter which model you change from. It will be cooler than most devices from the Apple range, although it costs nothing – 18 thousand rubles for the older version.


This is what I personally like about him:

  • Screen – 6.5 inches, 90 Hz;
  • Battery – 5000 mAh;
  • Charging – 18 W;
  • Camera – 48 megapixels;
  • Biometrics – Side Fingerprint Scanner.

And the appearance? Yes, Poco is a frankly inexpensive Android smartphone. But it certainly looks more interesting than monotonous iPhones. But personally, I recommend taking the top version. It is very easy to distinguish it by the amount of RAM. The older model has 6 GB of RAM versus 4 GB of the younger ones.

Which OnePlus phone is better

OnePlus Nord CE 5G is already more expensive, but also more abruptly Poco M3 Pro. Despite the fact that state employees from OnePlus are usually scolded for short-term support, the new versions of Android alone are worthless. Google updates are much more important, and the search giant releases them stably for 5-7 years.

But there is:

  • Display – 6.43 inches, 90 Hz;
  • Battery – 4500 mAh;
  • Charging – 30 W;
  • RAM – 8/12 GB;
  • Camera – 64 megapixels.

At a price of 22 thousand rubles for the basic configuration, the Nord CE 5G offers something that no iPhone, even the most expensive one, has: 8 GB of RAM (and it is, whatever one may say, important), a 64-megapixel camera, a display with a refresh rate 90Hz and 30W charging. A great combination.

Best phone for price-quality

Redmi Note 10 Pro is the third smartphone in the collection that you can actually buy instead of the iPhone , and not think about anything. His appearance, frankly, is quite typical, there is no originality in design. But in terms of technical equipment, everything is normal here. See for yourself:

  • Display – 6.7 inches, 120 Hz;
  • RAM – 8 GB;
  • Camera – 108 megapixels;
  • Battery – 5020 mAh;
  • Charging – 33 W.

In general, Redmi Note 10 Pro is perhaps the best Android smartphone from today’s collection in terms of price and performance. Unlike everyone else, its camera has a resolution of 108 megapixels, and its display has a refresh rate of 120 Hz – just like the flagship models at a price of less than 30 thousand rubles.

The fastest charging phone

Black Shark 4 is a rare representative of sub-flagship smartphones with a price under 30 thousand rubles . You can understand this by the processor underlying it. This is the Snapdragon 870, which is somewhere in between the top-end Snapdragon 888 and last year’s Snapdragon 865 Plus. However, this does not make it worse.

  • Display – 6.7 inches, 144 Hz;
  • Operative – 6/8/12/16 GB;
  • Battery – 4500 mAh;
  • Charging – 120 W;
  • Camera – 48 megapixels.

The Black Shark 4 is considered a gaming smartphone, but it does not have any special advantages in games, except perhaps a screen with a refresh rate of 144 Hz. But what it has is in the charging speed. It is one of the fastest charging smartphones today. It can recharge from 0 to 100% in just 15 minutes.

The cheapest flagship on Android

So we got to the real flagships. The Realme GT is one of the top end Android smartphones on the market today

  • Processor – Snapdragon 888;
  • Memory – 8/128 GB;
  • Display – 6.43 inches, 120 Hz;
  • Battery – 4500 mAh;
  • Charging – 65 W;
  • Camera – 64 megapixels.
