30 best smartphones of 2023 in terms of price and quality

Phone Number


  •  2022 is the time when the smartphone market revived after the pandemic and pleased us with various interesting gaming and budget innovations.

And for those who want to choose a mobile phone, I have prepared smartphone rating 2023 for price and quality, each of which is a bestseller in its field – whether it's an economy option or the most sophisticated flagship.

30. TECNO Pova 4/4 Pro – the most beautiful budget smartphones

TECNO Pova 4

  • Screen 66″/6.82″ IPS/AMOLED 90 Hz
  • Built-in memory 128/256 GB
  • Memory: 8 GB
  • Number of cameras: 2
  • Battery 6000 mAh
  • Processor: MediaTek Helio G99

  •  The characteristic design features of the Pova 4 and its improved version Pro are broken lines and a geometric pattern in the style of the Widmanstetten structure (yes, I also only learned about it after the release of this smartphone). This structure is usually referred to to refer to the figures or patterns that occur when iron meteorites are sawn and etched with acid.

  •  There are three colors to choose from – uranolite gray, magma orange and fluorite blue.

  •  The main differences between the two smartphones are in resolution and matrix. The regular Pova 4 was given a 6.82″ IPS display with a resolution of 1640×720 and a refresh rate of 90Hz, while the Proshka received an AMOLED matrix with a high resolution of 2400×1080 and the same 90Hz.

  •  Even the younger version has less internal memory, 128 GB versus 256 GB for the Pro. And charging is not as powerful – 18 watts, not 45 watts.

  •  Otherwise, the characteristics of the models are identical. There is a separate slot for a memory card, NFC, stereo speakers – in general, everything that you expect to find in a good smartphone up to 25. At the same time, the price of TECNO's new products is quite humane. Pova 4 can be found on sale for 15 rubles, and Pro – for 000.

  •  The bundle did not let us down either, there is a solid silicone case that does not hide the beauty of the smartphone and at the same time reliably protects the back and has high sides to protect the camera and screen.

Pros and consgaming capabilities for an affordable price heats up weakly even under load there is an opportunity to expand the RAM due to virtual (internal) memorycapacious battery mediocre camerahard to find a case

29. OPPO Find X5 Pro is the best OPPO flagship


  • Screen: 6.7″ (3216×1440) AMOLED 120Hz
  • Memory: Built-in 256 GB, RAM 12 GB
  • Photo: 3 cameras, main 50 MP
  • Battery 5000 mAh
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1

  •  When the flagship market begins to feel like the consumer is a pendulum swinging dutifully between Apple's latest iPhone and Samsung's latest Galaxy, you can rely on Chinese brands like Oppo to offer impressive and affordable alternatives.

  •  The Find X5 is one such device, with the powerful Snapdragon 888 processor delivering performance that rivals other flagship models.

  •  The stunning AMOLED screen offers exceptional color accuracy and smooth 120Hz refresh rate.

  •  Find X5 can easily be used throughout the day. Most likely, the smartphone will work for the second day with moderate use. When it runs out, the included 80W fast charger will restore it to 100% in just 40 minutes.

28. Infinix ZERO X PRO – a smartphone with space design

Infinix ZERO X PRO

  • Screen: 6.67″ (2400×1080) AMOLED 120Hz
  • Built-in memory: 128/256 GB
  • Memory: 8 GB
  • Number of cameras: 3
  • Battery 4500 mAh
  • Processor: MediaTek Helio G95

  •  The novelty of smartphones in 2023 is made in 3 colors: Starry silver, Tuscany brown and Nebula black. The latter pleases with a truly cosmic design. The back cover is made of double glass using high-precision nanolithography.

  •  You rarely see an AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 25 Hz in the category under 000 rubles, and an under-screen fingerprint scanner, but the ZERO X PRO has it. The display brightness is high – 120 nits according to the manufacturer, and 700 nits according to measurements. And the oleophobic coating is good.

  •  There is a lot of built-in memory, besides, it can be expanded by installing a memory card in a separate slot. But the NFC module was “regretted”. A trifle, but unpleasant.

  •  A separate mention is worthy of the main camera at 108 MP, and with optical stabilization in addition. Pictures are highly detailed when shot at the default 12 MP resolution (with the function of combining every 9 pixels into 1). If you use all 120 MP, then the picture will be “noisy”, and they will weigh, on average, 50 MB each. I also note the presence of 5x optical zoom in 8 MP telephoto cameras. The third camera is an 8MP ultra-wide camera with a 120˚ field of view.

  •  In general, Infinix ZERO X PRO is a beautiful, well-made and balanced smartphone in all respects, which will appeal to both fans of mobile photography and gamers. On medium and low settings, any modern game will run quickly and without jamming.

Pros and cons good photo quality when shooting at 12 MP 45 W fast charging screen without visible flicker and with a high refresh rate one speaker no NFC

27. Nothing Phone (1) – the most original smartphone

Nothing Phone (1)

  • Screen: 6.55″ (2400x1080) OLED 120Hz
  • Built-in memory: 256 GB / 128 GB
  • RAM: 8GB/12GB
  • Dual camera: 50MP/50MP
  • Battery 4500 mAh
  • Processor: Snapdragon 778G+

  •  This smartphone made the list not because it has great specs (it has a mid-range Snapdragon 778G+ chip), but because of its attractive design and adequate price.

  •  Nothing Phone is almost pure Android, has fast and wireless charging options, and the manufacturer has not forgotten about the NFC module. The main camera has optical stabilization and can record 4K video at 30 fps.

  •  The Phone 1 may look like an iPhone, but the Glyph LED, visible through the clear glass on the back, shows it's not a clone. It can be configured depending on the activities – calls, sms, etc. The effect, of course, is WOW, but, according to user reviews, it disappears after a few days.

Pros and cons case is waterproof to IP53 standard bright OLED screen with HDR10 + and high refresh rate (but not dynamic) glossy protective film from the factory without a slot for a memory card heats up from any load

26. Google Pixel 6a – Google's Best Compact Camera Phone

Google Pixel 6a

  • Screen: 6.13″ (2400x1080) OLED 60Hz
  • Memory: Built-in 128 GB, RAM 6 GB
  • Photo: dual camera, main 12.2 MP
  • Battery 4410 mAh
  • Processor: Google Tensor

  •  Starting at Rs 30, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better value for money phone. The simplified version of the Pixel 000 is fast, and perfectly demonstrates how good Google is at handling images.

  •  The Pixel 6a comes with the same Tensor chip and is made from the same combination of metal and glass as the Pixel 6, has an improved tactile feel and an IP67 dust and water resistance rating. A good processor and 6 GB of RAM allow you to play resource-intensive games like Genshin Impact or Diablo Immortal, but not at the highest settings.

  •  The camera system in this model is cut down compared to the "six":

  1. Wide-angle lens: 12,2MP f/1,7 (not 50MP).
  2. Ultra wide lens: 12MP f/2.2.
  3. Selfie Lens: 8MP f/2.0.

  •  But the difference in photographic quality between the 6a and 6 in terms of color temperature, brightness and contrast is not very noticeable. Detail is another matter, with the Pixel 6's sensor capturing finer details and producing slightly more natural portraits.

  •  The OLED screen has a resolution of 2400 x 1080 and supports HDR content. The fingerprint sensor in the Pixel 6a is built into the screen. It is worth noting that the display refresh rate is only 60 Hz, not 90 or 120 Hz, while many competitors under 30 rubles have already surpassed the Pixel 000a in this regard.

Pros and cons loud and clear sound good autonomy – one and a half to two days there is a fast charge excellent photo quality no wireless charging

25. ASUS Zenfone 9 is the most powerful compact Android smartphone

ASUS Zenfone 9


  • Screen: 5.9″ (2400×1080) AMOLED 120Hz
  • Memory: Built-in 256 GB, RAM 8 GB
  • Photo: dual camera, main 50 MP
  • Battery 4300 mAh
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1

  •  It's funny that a phone with a 5,9-inch screen is currently considered "small", but that's the way it is. While many phone makers seem to have settled on a 6,1-inch ideal screen size, Asus is making the Zenfone 9 smaller without sacrificing performance.

  •  The screen, camera, and battery life are good enough to handle pretty much everything the phones are used for. Add to this the call recording by default, the presence of a 3.5 mm mini jack and you will get a smartphone that is balanced both in terms of hardware and software.

Pros and cons compact IP68 case protection rating there is fast charging optical stabilization of the main camera

24. OUKITEL WP19 – smartphone with the most capacious battery


  • Screen: 6,78″ (2400×1080)
  • Built-in memory: 256 GB
  • Memory: 8 GB
  • Three cameras: 64MP/20MP/2MP
  • Battery: 21000 mAh
  • Processor: MTK helio G95

  •  OUKITEL introduced a smartphone with the most powerful battery – 21000 mAh. The manufacturer promises that the device will be able to work a week without recharging. It comes with a 27W charger that fully charges the WP19 in 4 hours. But if this is too long for you, you can limit yourself to an hour of charging, and this will allow the smartphone to work all day.

  •  Of course, only a large and weighty case can accommodate such a battery. If necessary, this smartphone can fight off enemies, it weighs 485 g.

  •  The OUKITEL WP19 is IP68 dust and water resistant and MIL-STD-810G rated.

  •  Otherwise, the characteristics of the novelty do not reach its high price on Aliexpress, where it costs a little more than 60. MediaTek Helio G95 4G processor, there is support for memory cards (you will have to sacrifice one of the SIM cards), the screen supports a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The rear camera consists of a 64MP main lens, a 20MP night vision camera, and a 2MP macro lens. On the front is a 16 MP selfie camera.

Pros and cons have NFC bluetooth 5.0 latest android 12 price weight

23. OnePlus Nord 2T 5G – All-rounder with 5G

OnePlus Nord 2T 5G

  • Screen: 6.43″ (2400×1080) AMOLED 90Hz
  • Memory: built-in 128/256 GB, operational 8/12 GB
  • Photo: 3 cameras, main 50 MP
  • Battery 4500 mAh
  • Processor: MediaTek Dimensity 1300

  •  While the OnePlus Nord 2T 5G isn't a huge leap over its predecessor, it's still a great phone with the perfect balance between price and features. With one of the latest Mediatek chipsets and 8GB or 12GB of RAM, the Nord 2T outperformed most of its competitors in Expert Reviews' tests, trailing only the iPhone SE 3 (2022) .

  •  AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate allows you to smoothly display dynamic content and switch between applications. While the phone doesn't have an official IP rating, Gorilla Glass 5 covers both the front and back of the phone, enhancing the phone's durability and giving it an overall luxurious feel.

  •  Add to that the excellent photo and video quality and impressive battery life, and you have an outstanding all-round phone that's good for both entertainment and work.

Pros and cons NFC stereo speaker factory already has a protective film on it no memory expansion option no wireless charging

22. Xiaomi POCO F4 – smartphone with Dolby Vision and OIS

Xiaomi POCO F4

  • Screen: 6.67″ (2400×1080) AMOLED 120Hz
  • Memory: built-in 128/256 GB, operational 6/8 GB
  • Photo: 3 cameras, main 64 MP
  • Battery 4500 mAh
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 5G

  •  Extremely slim (7,7mm) and stylish, the F4 offers Dolby Vision for better video streaming, a larger (than its predecessor) 64MP main camera with OIS, and 67W fast charging that can fully charge the battery in about 38 minutes.

  •  Performance remains on par with similarly priced models. The Snapdragon 870 processor is made using a 7nm process technology, is not too hot and can handle any game at maximum speed.

  •  AMOLED display with a dynamic refresh rate of 120Hz and a touch sampling rate of 360Hz is responsive to touch. It is protected by scratch and drop resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

Pros and consincludes Type-C to 3,5mm headphone adapterclear and high-quality sound from stereo speakershigh performancegood camerascannot expand memory storage

21. Vivo Y31 is the best-selling Vivo smartphone

Live Y31

  • Screen 6,58″ (2408×1080) IPS 60 Hz
  • Built-in memory: 64/128 GB
  • Memory: 4 GB
  • 3 cameras: 48MP/2MP/2MP
  • Battery: 5000 mAh
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 662

  •  A smartphone with an eight-core Snapdragon 662 processor has, if not a flagship, but quite decent performance. Any applications will open quickly, and most games will run on medium settings.

  •  Another feature that this phone deserves praise for is its built-in Ultra gaming mode. It allows you to play without being distracted by notifications, and even slightly improves performance.

  •  The manufacturer protects the eyes of users, so the smartphone has the function of filtering blue radiation.

  •  A full charge of the device takes no more than an hour and 50 minutes thanks to the 18W charger.

  •  vivo Y31 boasts a triple rear camera setup with a 48MP main lens. Best of all, the smartphone copes with shooting in broad daylight or in good lighting conditions. But at dusk, the camera “loses” detail, and images may look grainy. But in the night mode there are filter functions (and even a Cyberpunk filter).

Pros and consNFC separate slot for a microSD card bright screen with good color reproduction included case and protective film (applied to the screen) the fingerprint scanner is conveniently located on the side in dim lighting the camera shoots mediocre

20. Samsung Galaxy A03 – the best budget smartphone under 10000 rubles

  • Built-in memory: 32 GB
  • Memory: 2 GB
  • Camera: 8 MP
  • Battery: 5000 mAh
  • Processor: Unisoc SC9863A

  •  The top of the best smartphones in 2023 is opened by a solid state employee, which you can give your child to school or keep yourself as a “dialer”.

  •  The 6.5″ TFT LCD PLS display is not too bright, but not dim either – it is comfortable to read in daylight.

  •  You should not expect gaming performance from the Galaxy A03, the Unisoc SC9863A chipset will allow you to play only undemanding games, but the interface is smooth, and the device does not slow down in applications.

  •  The body of the Galaxy A03 does not heat up, and the battery capacity is enough for a couple of days of active work. But there is no fast charging in this device.

  •  The main 8 MP camera does not protrude from the body. Its capabilities are quite enough for photographing documents, or shooting well-lit objects. But with photo and video shooting at dusk there will be problems due to poor detail.

Pros and consSeparate slot for a memory card up to 1TBLap-capacity batteryComfortable in the hand even without a caseOutdated Micro USB connectorNo fast chargingNo NFC

19. Realme 9i is the best new smartphone in 2022 today

  •  According to the owners of the novelty, the main camera (consists of a 50 MP main lens, black and white and a macro lens) works perfectly out of the box. Photos taken in daylight have medium dynamic range and look natural, although zooming in may show lower detail, especially in shadows.

  •  When taking photos in bright conditions, the phone automatically turns on HDR and manages exposure well. Unfortunately, there is no ultra wide-angle camera.

Pros and cons stereo sound nice Stereo Prism design is very energy efficient, it will work for about two days with intensive use there is NFC there is no video stabilization, maybe this will be fixed in software updates

  •  The Galaxy A72 also has a macro camera, so it's technically a phone that can capture both objects that are very close and those that are really far away from the photographer.

  •  The biggest problem with the design of the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is the awkward placement of the side-mounted fingerprint scanner, which sits a little higher than it should when the phone is open.

  •  The main display of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G received a 6,7-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2x panel with a frequency of 120 Hz. Picture quality on this phone is as fantastically bright and smooth as other top Samsung models. And with the help of an external 1.9” Super AMOLED screen, you can track calls, SMS, and use applications and widgets without opening the gadget.

  •  The Z Flip3 has a total of three cameras, and it's unlikely you'll need more. The smartphone has two 12-megapixel lenses – a standard wide-angle and an ultra-wide angle. The photo module on the main display has a resolution of 10 megapixels. While some reviews complain that the Flip lacks a bit of dynamic range, the photos come out bright and detailed even in low light.

  •  The Z Flip3 5G is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, so forget about stuttering in games – not with this smartphone.

  •  It's not a flagship, but all things considered, it's a bright and cost-effective alternative for almost a third of the price of a flagship smartphone.

  •  In terms of performance, the Note 10 Pro will handle any demanding apps and games, though I recommend setting it to medium settings to get the best performance.

  •  Pictures taken by the main 108 MP camera are detailed even in shadows, objects are not overexposed, and in general the quality of photos and videos is even better than you might expect from a mid-range camera. But there is no optical stabilization, only electronic.
