The best cheap Chinese mobiles of 2019

Xiaomi Redmi Note 7

It is a mid-range phone with a cheaper price, difficult not to fall into the temptation to buy everything that Redmi Note 7 offers in return: nothing comes close to this in the low-budget phone market of Spain.

Its appearance closely resembles the line of the Mi model family of the brand, with a magnificent glass design and an impressive double camera with 48 megapixel lens. Its generous 6.3-inch screen, as well as the capacity of its 4,000 mAh battery complement the perfection.

We also love the headphone jack and IR infrared of Redmi Note 7 to make remote control. Another great feature is to support the use of dual SIM and microSD storage card slot.

Against it and given the sale price, it leaves aside more premium aspects such as NFC technology, the on-screen fingerprint sensor, wireless charging, as well as waterproofing.

The overall performance of the Redmi Note 7 is decent, as is the case with other phones that carry inside the Snapdragon 660 chip. Even the new Xiaomi Mi 9 SE carries the same, which makes it a terminal of what more versatile.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite

The Mi 8 Lite is a mid-range phone with a very good relationship of quality and price and a most attractive design, although it keeps the fingerprint sensor in its back, instead of integrating it under its screen.

It is likely that the price of Mi 8 Lite It will be reviewed shortly, now that the new Xiaomi Mi A3 has been launched with interesting new features in the camera and the integrated fingerprint sensor on the screen. Either way, you get a lot in exchange for a low price.

Xiaomi Mi A3

Recently introduced by Xiaomi in Spain, the new mid-range Mi A3 is an Android One model that features a 48-megapixel triple camera with wide angle, a built-in fingerprint sensor and a 4,030 mAh battery.

Its 4 GB RAM is the same for both the 64 GB model and the 128 GB storage model, it will not vary. If you can do without the NFC technology, which it lacks, it is undoubtedly a serious asset to consider for the average user who also seeks quality in their photographs and videos.

Facing the characteristics of the Mi A2, this new Mi A3 model It has a larger capacity battery that reaches 4030 mAh, as well as an audio mini-jack port. Of course, the resolution of the screen is only HD + compared to other phones in this range that choose to include Full HD +.

Honor 20 Lite

The highlights of the Honor 20 Lite version are its triple rear cameras, the big screen with tiny bezels, and the camera selfie 32 MP

The Honor 10 Lite You can still buy it on Amazon for only 199, which means that you will be paying just one hundred euros more for the new Honor 20 Lite. This price difference is worth it only if the three new cameras are important to you, that is, everything associated with the photography section.

In all other aspects, both phones have very similar specifications. The 20 Lite includes some other change in the design, but as we say, the cameras are the only striking difference you will find.

Honor 8x

If something stands out of the Honor 8X is the impressive FHD + screen without frames that has the terminal, which is completed with a small notch in which a 20 megapixel front camera is integrated, although its size is larger than the drop type of Water.

It offers advanced features among which it is worth mentioning the facial recognition that works tremendously, regardless of the environment, as well as the capacity of its battery that is 3,750 mAh.

The current price of the model with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB is in the 249 with what is halfway between the Honor 10 and the Honor 10 Lite. Pay attention to offers that you can find on time on-line to opt for one or another model with blue or black finishes.


Looking at the data sheet of the UMIDIGI One Pro terminal, it seems too good to be true. The fast wireless charging, the inclusion of NFC technology, the 19: 9 format IPS screen, or the dual cameras are frankly surprising.

Also its fingerprint sensors mounted on the side and the attractive design of the mobile phone leave out any other brand that wants to compete on price. But this is an economic telephone, and as such, some aspects have been cut.

The screen of the UMIDIGI One Pro only has HD resolution, the fingerprint sensor can be temperamental and the final quality that you will get with your cameras, are far from offering the quality that you frankly want. If you can do without it, it is a great low budget purchase.

Huawei Mate 20 Lite

The Huawei Mate 20 Lite is a peculiar phone somewhat difficult to position. It is attractive and striking enough for the price it currently presents, an amount that has been reduced with the arrival of the newest current models, as is the case of the P30 family.

It has a good processor in its mid-range interior, to which it is necessary to add that part of its success is given by the value of its dual cameras of 24 megapixels, for the type of mobile phone that we have in hand.

Do not pretend to get the best selfies or photos on your Instagram with the Mate 20 Lite, but for the price you pay in return, you can have really good results, in addition to its spectacular 6.3-inch FHD screen. The AI ​​applied by its chip improves performance when it comes to addressing the area of ​​leisure and games.

Huawei P Smart 2019

With a screen of the most decisive whose format is 18: 9, the P Smart is a phone with Android that offers the main functions for the vast majority of mortals without having great pretensions.

In fact, it will surely become one of the most successful among telephone providers and operators to offer it with their contract modalities. It is very similar to Honor 9 Lite (whose price is 30 lower when purchased in free mode).

Faced with the company's white range, the Honor 9 Lite also offers the possibility of using dual SIM cards and a second front camera, something that the Huawei lacks. They are factors to take into account when buy it for only 149.
