Under-200-1.jpg


Hello MIUIers,
Our top 5 Chinese smartphone list sees some changes for the month of May, which means your options just got better overall. So, if you’re looking for your next daily driver for under $200, then stick around to check out what you can get from China in this price segment!


1. Asus ZenFone Max Pro (M1)

Asus are finally bringing some good competition to Xiaomi’s Redmi Note line-up of phones. The tech giant based in Taiwan did indeed launch the really promising Asus ZenFone Max Pro (M1) in late April.
Asus’s budget phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 along with 3GB, 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage (expandable).
Other specs include a 5.99-inch FHD+ (1080 x 2160 px) display, a 13MP rear camera with OIS and 4K recording capability accompanied by a 5MP image sensor, meanwhile selfies are taken care from a 8MP snapper at the front.
The smartphone is fueled by a 5000mAh battery, runs Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box and supports various 4G LTE networks around the globe.


2. Xiaomi Redmi Note 5

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is ZenFone Max Pro’s closest contender as they come with pretty similar hardware, Xiaomi’s device is indeed also powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (also available in 4GB/64GB). The hardware will push a large 5.99-inch LCD IPS display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 px (FHD+).
The Redmi Note 5 comes with a main 12MP rear shooter accompanied by a 5MP sensor to create photos with a shallow depth of field effect; a 13MP front camera will be snapping your selfies.


The smartphone packs a big 4000mAh battery, runs MIUI based on Android 8.0 Oreo and supports a wide selection of 4G networks in its Global version.


3. Lenovo S5

Lenovo recently came up with a phone that could challenge the two above, albeit it features the less powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 625. The handset features a 5.7-inch screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a 2160 x 1080 resolution encased in a full-metallic Series 6000 aluminum unibody. The SD 625 chip is coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. There is also a 4GB RAM variant coupled with 64GB or 128GB of storage.


Other specs include a 13MP rear shooter with F/2.2 aperture, a 16MP selfie snapper, a 3000mAh battery, 4G connectivity, Android 8.0 Oreo and the much requested USB Type-C port for charging and data sync.


4. Meizu M6S

If you’re looking for something more affordable, then check out the Meizu M6S. The handset comes with a 5.7-inch HD+ display and is powered by a good performing Samsung Exynos 7872 hexa-core CPU along with 3GB of RAM and either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage.
On the M6S we find a single 16MP rear camera with an F/2.0 aperture and PDAF. The selfie snapper is 8MP sporting the same F/2.0 wide aperture lens.
Meizu’s phone comes with a 3000mAh capacity battery, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and support for global LTE.


5. Huawei Honor 7x

Finally, the Huawei Honor 7x is still a great device in this price range if you can spend a little extra for your future daily driver. Honor’s budget phone does indeed come with some quite good performing hardware, including a Huawei HiSilicon KIRIN 659 coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (expandable), plus it features a large 5.93-inch FHD+ 18:9 display and the dual camera setup Huawei is famous for.
The rear camera combo is composed of a main 16MP shooter with F/2.2 shooter that can record 4K videos and a secondary 2MP to create photos with the fancy bokeh effect; meanwhile at the front we find an 8MP shooter with F/2.0 aperture.
The Huawei Honor 7x is fueled by a 3340mAh capacity battery and it supports 4G LTE connectivity on many networks, sadly for Europeans there’s no band 20 support.
Alternatively, check out the Huawei Honor 9 Lite coming in the same price range but downgraded to 3GB of RAM (in the cheapest variant).


Here we conclude our monthly rendezvous for the month of May. If you’ve found your next mid-ranger comment below, otherwise let us know which smartphone under $200 you’d have liked to see on the list.
