Only the owner of the device, who uses it every day, can indicate the strengths and weaknesses of the functionality, therefore, to determine the most popular mobile phones of the summer, in addition to the opinions of critics, user reviews and the number of gadgets sold were taken into account.
Third place - Samsung Galaxy S9 +
The Galaxy S9 + smartphone is an improved modification of the flagship of the famous Korean manufacturer Samsung, and due to its high cost it can hardly be called a public device.
However, the incredible technical capabilities fully justify the "biting" price, so the device attracted millions of domestic buyers in the first weeks after the official launch.
S9 + will delight 10nm microprocessor Exynos 9810, which is supported by 6GB of high-speed memory of the 4th generation. The main control element is a 6.2 "frameless touch-screen module on a SuperAMOLED matrix with an aspect ratio of 18: 9.
But the main advantage is the updated 12 megapixel dual camera, which consists of a main sensor with an interchangeable aperture f / 1.5-2.4 and an additional telesensor with a built-in 2x optical type zoom. Also, a pleasant bonus was the use of proprietary stereo speakers from the well-known manufacturer of sound technologies AKG in the system.

The smartphone has received an updated design and improved ergonomics, thanks to which it does not feel at all in the hand and does not slip during prolonged use.
For easy reading of information, the gadget is equipped with a 5.7-inch FullHD + display with thin side frames. The single rear camera is developed on a 19-megapixel IMX400 f / 2.0 sensor using Motion Eye technology, which is characterized by excellent detailing with natural colors and high brightness. In addition, the camera has several unusual modes, among which multi-shooting photos in motion and 4K / HDR video recording are especially attractive.
The "engine" of the gadget is the innovative Snapdragon 845 chipset with high performance and low power consumption. Also, we cannot fail to mention 4 GB of RAM resource, S-Force speakers and an unusual technology Dynamic Vibration System, which creates additional vibration at bright moments in games, when watching videos and listening to audio tracks.
First Place - Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S
The Chinese device Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S became the gold medalist of the mobile top, which left far behind its more eminent competitors. Its advantage over other smartphones lies in powerful hardware at a very pleasant price. Combine that with a vibrant, modern design, a flagship 5.99-inch FullHD + IPS screen, and you have a great device that's unmatched in its price range.
An inexpensive Chinese gadget received a powerful Snapdragon 845 processor chip with built-in AI functions, two RAM variations - 6 or 8 GB, as well as three versions of permanent ROM - 64, 128 or 256 GB. The device will delight with a modern dual camera 12 + 12 million pixels, support for Qi wireless charging, QC 3 fast charging function and a new version of the MIUI 9.5 proprietary software interface, which hides Android 8.0 underneath.
