I now understand why mid-range smartphones are more popular these days after looking at a few models

【phoneauto Shopping Guide】For various reasons, young people nowadays are unwilling to spend money on high-end flagship phones. This can be seen as a common phenomenon. Smartphone manufacturers have also keenly captured this point and increased their investment in mid-range phones. The mid-range phone market is now more competitive than before. For consumers, this is a good thing as we can finally spend less money to get flagship-level user experience.

Why are iPhones so popular? Many people say it’s because of the user-friendly system that doesn’t lag even after years of use, which is indeed an advantage of iPhones. Android phone manufacturers have basically narrowed this gap through technological advancements. Initially, it was high-end phones, but now many mid-range phones are becoming more and more durable. In fact, many manufacturers emphasize this point in their promotions.

Currently, there are more options in the mid-range phone market. Some of the outstanding mid-range phones include OnePlus Ace 2V, Honor 90, Redmi Note 12 Turbo, and the recently released OPPO K11.

The OPPO K11 was just released yesterday, and it offers some surprises in terms of price. The 8GB+256GB version is priced at only 1899 yuan, and the high-memory 12GB+512GB version is sold for only 2499 yuan. In addition, the new phone has made significant improvements, making it one of the most cost-effective mid-range phones currently available.

The OPPO K11 is equipped with a 6.7-inch 120Hz OLED eye-protection screen, which supports a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz and a high-frequency PWM dimming of 2160Hz. It has also obtained the German TÜV hardware low blue-light certification to protect users’ eye health. At the same time, the phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 782G processor and uses the same memory gene recombination technology and refreshed storage technology as flagship phones, so there is no need to worry about its performance. Moreover, the OPPO K11 also has HyperBoost 2.0 game frame stabilization engine, lightning-fast startup, high-performance graphite heat dissipation system, and other features, making it a good choice for gaming experience.

OPPO K11 has made great improvements in photography. It features a 50-megapixel Sony IMX890 flagship main camera with a 112° ultra-wide angle lens and a 4cm macro lens, making it suitable for shooting landscapes and close-up photos. It is capable of meeting the needs of outdoor travel. This time, OPPO K11 also brings three flagship imaging algorithms: natural portrait bokeh engine, dynamic capture engine, and ultra-clear image quality engine, making it easy to take portrait photos comparable to those taken with a DSLR camera. It also performs well in night scenes.

In addition, the new phone is equipped with a 5000mAh super large battery and supports SUPERVOOC long-life version 100W super flash charging. It can be fully charged in 26 minutes. This should be the only model in this price range with such charging configuration.

OnePlus Ace 2V can be said to be one of the most eye-catching mid-range phones this year. When smartphone manufacturers are popularizing mid-range phones with flagship experiences, it brings consumers a small price shock. The price of just over 2000 yuan is quite attractive. Looking at the configuration of OnePlus Ace 2V, it is almost the same as that of high-end flagships.

First of all, OnePlus Ace 2V has an excellent screen – a 1.5K Linqi touch screen, which supports 1440Hz high-frequency PWM dimming and 40Hz-120Hz six-gear ultra-low latency super-speed frame switching.

The Dimensity 9000 is a well-received processor that used to be used in high-end flagships, and now it is also used in mid-range devices. In terms of performance, the OnePlus Ace 2V is no less than some high-end flagships.

In addition, the OnePlus Ace 2V is equipped with a 64-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2-megapixel macro lens on the back; it is equipped with a 5000mAh large-capacity battery and supports the long-life version of 80W Super Flash Charge. This configuration is not low for a mid-range device and can meet various user needs. What high-end flagships can offer, the OnePlus Ace 2V can also provide.

The Honor 90 is more like a lightweight flagship, with excellent design, strong performance, and outstanding imaging capabilities, and it has various gameplay options.

The device uses innovative relief glass craftsmanship and offers four stylish colors: Star Diamond Silver, Ice Feather Blue, Ink Jade Green, and Bright Black. There are many choices, and each one is very distinctive. On the front, the Honor 90 is equipped with a “zero-risk dimming eye protection screen”, which is the industry’s first 3840Hz ultra-high-frequency PWM dimming and has obtained TUV Rheinland flicker-free certification. In terms of display effect, the Honor 90 may surpass some high-end flagships.

In terms of imaging, the Honor 90 is a sharp weapon among mid-range devices, equipped with the industry’s highest 200 million pixel main camera, and it has diverse photography functions, supporting the capture of dynamic photos, one-click generation of expression packs, and one-click generation of large photos.

Furthermore, the Honor 90 is equipped with the Snapdragon 7 (Enhanced Edition) super chip, and there are no major issues with daily use; it also has a 5000mAh battery, which provides excellent battery life.

Last but not least, the Redmi Note 12 Turbo is a highly cost-effective mid-range device that provides users with a mid-range experience at a price close to that of a low-end device. It has to be said that Redmi is basically unmatched in this area.

The design of the Redmi Note 12 Turbo is very simple, but it looks comfortable. With a body thickness of 7.9mm and a weight of only 181g, it also feels very good in the hand. This phone is available in three colors: Carbon Fiber Black, Starry Sea Blue, and Ice Feather White. Although there aren’t many color options, the quality of the colors is well done. If you have more personalized requirements, you can choose the Harry Potter edition.

The front of the Redmi Note 12 Turbo is equipped with a 6.67-inch ultra-thin four-sided narrow bezel OLED display, which may be more comfortable for playing mobile games compared to many curved screen flagships. The device is powered by the second-generation Snapdragon 7+ mobile platform and offers a combination of 16GB+1TB of large memory. It also has a rear triple camera setup, consisting of a 64-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera, providing a powerful overall configuration.
