【PhoneAuto】The 2023 618 promotion has officially come to an end. According to data released by various e-commerce platforms and mobile phone brands, this year’s 618 promotion was undoubtedly successful, and many manufacturers achieved positive growth. However, some student party members still missed this year’s 618 promotion due to reasons such as saving money. So for these consumers, what mobile phone products are still worth buying after 618?
Not long ago, B company announced its heavyweight work of the year, “Starry Sky”, at the Microsoft gaming conference, which ignited the entire gaming circle. Some netizens asked for help to upgrade their graphics cards for their computers, so that they can run this game better when it is released, but their budget is not high. However, even so, there are many excellent graphics cards selling for less than 2,000 yuan.
ASUS recently launched the domestic version of its new handheld game console, and many netizens said that this was a good lesson for other Windows handheld game console manufacturers. However, in the game console market, Steam’s Steam Deck is also a very good product, which has always been highly praised. Which of these two models is more worth buying? In addition, it has been reported that Sony’s new APS-C flagship mirrorless camera α6700 will be officially released around July 12th this year.

The 618 promotion has officially passed. Mobile China noticed that the promotion this year seems to be stronger than in previous years. Therefore, for consumers who missed this buying opportunity but have a hard need to replace their phone, it is indeed a pity. However, good products will not lose their shine just because 618 has passed. Mobile China noticed that the following products are still market leaders and are suitable for student party members to purchase.
OnePlus Ace 2
Firstly, this is a model under the OnePlus brand. As the brand strategy has changed, there are many affordable phones from OnePlus this year. Among them, the OnePlus Ace 2 is a killer phone in their lineup!
Why is this phone more suitable for students to buy? Firstly, the OnePlus brand has a unique style and is very good at showcasing its characteristics, which is in line with the personality of young people, and the two should be very compatible. Secondly, OnePlus phones have cooperated with many game companies such as miHoYo (developer of Genshin Impact) and Tencent, and their phones have special optimization for games such as Genshin Impact and Peacekeeper Elite, with excellent performance, which is suitable for young people who love to play games. Thirdly, the OnePlus Ace 2 has a high cost performance, with the 18GB RAM version priced at only around 3,500 yuan and the low-end version priced at only around 2,500 yuan, which is suitable for young people who usually have a limited budget and buying a cost-effective phone can save costs.
This year is the year of Honor’s rise. According to official data, during the 618 promotion in 2023, the Honor 90 series became the best-selling Android phone on the four major platforms of JD.com, Tmall, Douyin, and Kuaishou. Therefore, this model is highly recognized by consumers. Even though 618 has ended, Phone China believes that the standard version of Honor 90 is still a product that students must pay attention to.
Firstly, the starting price of Honor 90 is only 2,499 yuan. In this price range, the competitiveness of the standard version of Honor 90 is not low and is suitable for users with a limited budget. Secondly, the main camera of the standard version of Honor 90 uses a 200 million pixel sensor to create the main camera, and also comes with a flagship-level 50 million pixel sensor for the secondary camera. Therefore, the imaging ability of this phone is very powerful. As students usually have high requirements for imaging, this Honor 90 is just right for them.
The element of cost-effectiveness seems to have penetrated into the bone marrow of the Redmi brand, and their latest flagship Redmi K60 series is one of the ultimate cost-effective phones currently available. According to official reports, the K60 series sold over one million units during the 618 shopping festival. And among them, Phone China believes that the K60 standard version is more suitable for student use than the K60 Pro.
In terms of price, the starting price of the K60 standard version is less than 2,000 yuan (about $310), which is much cheaper than the K60 Pro, but the two models have almost no difference except for the core processor. For students, spending more money on the Pro version does not make much sense. At the same time, the K60 has a built-in 5,500mAh battery and supports 67W fast charging. In terms of battery life, this model should be among the top in its class. If you like to go out, then the K60’s super long battery life will definitely come in handy.

Seeing this issue, the author thought of “2077” back then. It was precisely because of this game that countless consumers switched to the 30 series graphics card. However, in terms of promotional volume, “Starfield” is still unable to compare with “2077” back then.
First, let’s take a look at the configuration requirements of “Starfield”. The minimum requirement is an AMD 2600X or Intel i7 6800K processor, an AMD 5700 or Nvidia 1070 graphics card, and the recommended requirement is an AMD 3600X or Intel i5 10600K processor, an AMD 6800XT or Nvidia 2080 graphics card. Therefore, in the price range below 2,000 yuan, there are actually many new graphics cards that meet the requirements for playing “Starfield”.
The 6650XT is a brand new 6000 series graphics card launched by AMD shortly before the end of the mining craze. Therefore, we don’t have to worry about buying a so-called “mining card” when purchasing this product. At the same time, the performance of the 6650XT has improved compared to the 6600XT, and it has better performance when running games. Of course, its performance is stronger than the AMD 5700, and it fully meets the requirements for running “Starfield”.
Currently, according to the author’s observation, during the 618 shopping festival, the lowest price for the AMD 6650XT has dropped to around 1600 yuan, with an amazing cost performance. Among them, the Sapphire 6650XT Platinum Edition has been priced below 1700 yuan on Pinduoduo’s billion subsidy promotion, although the price has now rebounded, consumers can pay attention to it. The Hanke 6650XT dual-fan version is priced at only 1800 yuan on JD’s self-operated platform, and the three-fan version is currently out of stock. If you are not in a hurry to buy, you can wait for restocking. The current selling prices of the 6650XT from brands such as Ying Tong, Suju, Gigabyte, and Xun Jing are around 1900 yuan, which is also worth paying attention to.
NVIDIA RTX 3060 12G
In terms of gaming performance, NVIDIA graphics cards generally perform better than AMD graphics cards of the same performance. Currently, the author has noticed that the selling prices of some brands’ 3060 12G have dropped below 2000 yuan. Of course, this price is not constant, and consumers may need to wait for a while to get the ideal price.
Currently, the selling price of the Mingxuan RTX 3060 Gaming Heart OC 12G is 2199 yuan, but during the 618 shopping festival, its price dropped to below 1999 yuan. It is only a matter of time before it drops to below 2000 yuan again. The price of the gaming rebel RTX 3060 X2 W LHR is 2299 yuan, similar to the Mingxuan card, the price of this graphics card was also below 2000 yuan on June 18th, but the price has rebounded since the end of the promotion. It should drop again soon. Similar to the above two products, the price of the Inno3D RTX 3060 General OC 12G is also the same, and it can be added to the shopping cart for observation.
Although Intel’s independent graphics card seems to be underestimated by many people, according to research institutions, Intel’s discrete graphics card has already taken away 4% of the global market share from NVIDIA, and its rise speed is surprising. It should be pointed out that the hardware of Intel graphics card is actually good, but the driver is a weak point, and it is not suitable for playing some old games. However, in new games like “Starfield”, consumers can completely try Intel’s A750, which actually has theoretical performance higher than RTX 3060.
Currently, on the JD self-operated platform, Lanji’s A750 is priced at only about 1500 yuan, and with some coupons, consumers can buy it for about 1450 yuan, while the price of RTX 3060 is generally around 2000 yuan. At the same time, Lanji’s A750 on Pinduoduo can also be combined with a 100-yuan coupon (if you can get it), and the lowest price can be as low as more than 1300 yuan. Therefore, the cost performance of A750 is actually very high. Moreover, Lanji brand supports personal warranty, and there should be no problem buying on Pinduoduo.
It should be noted that currently we do not recommend using A750 graphics card with AMD processors, which seems to affect the performance of the former. If you are using an AMD processor, it is recommended to use AMD or NVIDIA graphics cards.

In the evening of June 13th, ASUS announced the official price of the Chinese version of its new ROG gaming handheld console, which is RMB 4999. In fact, this price exceeds the expectations of most consumers. Because of the excellent configuration of the ROG brand and this handheld console, many people speculated a price at least RMB 1000 higher than the official price. So, how does this model compare to the Steam Deck?
Performance: The Steam Deck is equipped with a custom AMD Zen 2 architecture CPU with four cores and eight threads. The ROG handheld, on the other hand, is equipped with a custom AMD Z1 Extreme CPU with Zen 4 architecture, eight cores, and sixteen threads. There’s no doubt that the performance of the Steam Deck cannot match that of the ROG handheld, and this can be seen from the difference in the two CPUs without comparing benchmark scores.
Screen: The Steam Deck is equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels and a refresh rate of 60Hz. The ASUS ROG handheld also has a 7-inch screen, but with a resolution of 1080P, a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz, a maximum brightness of 500 nits, and 100% sRGB color gamut. There’s no doubt that the ROG handheld has the advantage in this regard. At the same time, it seems that the ROG handheld is better in storage, memory, and other aspects.
However, according to relevant data, due to reasons such as a small battery capacity, the battery life of the ROG handheld seems to be only about 4 hours, and in this regard, the Steam Deck is stronger than its opponent. In addition, the lowest price of the Steam Deck is only about 3500 yuan, and even if the price of replacing the PCIe solid-state drive is included, the cost is only around 4000 yuan, which is half the price of the ROG handheld.
Overall, the ROG handheld is indeed very excellent, and consumers who have high requirements for Windows gaming handhelds can purchase it. The Steam Deck has a longer battery life and a lower price, and consumers with special usage environments and limited budgets can choose this one.

Sony’s α6000 series cameras can be said to be the benchmark for APS-C format cameras, with many popular models such as α6100, α6300, α6400, and so on. Now, according to leaks, we will soon welcome the arrival of the new Sony APS-C flagship α6700 on July 12. With the arrival of the new camera, it is natural to compare it with the old one. So what about this α6700?
According to Sony Alpha Rumors, the α6700 will be officially released on July 12. This camera is similar to the previous Sony video camera, the FX30, in many ways and should be a modified version of the latter. Currently, after the release, consumers should be able to get their hands on the α6700 as early as August.
In terms of configuration, the α6700 has the same 26 million pixel sensor as the Sony FX30, body stabilization, and is equipped with the same AI processor as the Sony ZV-E1. In terms of video recording specifications, the α6700 can record 10-bit video with a 6K resolution at 30P and 4K resolution at 120P. Of course, this should have some cropping. At the same time, the body of the α6700 adopts a new design, increasing a wheel in front of the shutter button, which is more ergonomic. The electronic viewfinder has 3.69 million pixels and supports CF-A memory cards and SD cards. Finally, the expected price of the α6700 is $1999, and even if the domestic version is cheaper, the selling price should still be above ten thousand yuan.
Overall, the selling price of the Sony α6700 is actually quite high, far exceeding the current α6400. If your previous goal was to buy the latter, there is no need to wait for the release of the α6700, you can buy it now. If you have higher requirements for camera specifications, the α6700 is indeed an option to consider. However, judging from Sony’s recent pace of new product releases, the α6700 may still experience shortages and price increases, so be prepared.

OnePlus Ace 2
First of all, this is a model under OnePlus. Because of a change in brand strategy, OnePlus has many smartphones with great cost performance this year. Among them, the OnePlus Ace 2 is a big weapon in the hands of OnePlus!
