                Absolutely the A52 non 5g edition beats all the Xiaomi phones because Xiaomi has. Terrible quality control and inconvenient integration of MIUI + apps ( notifications not appearing , horrible wallpaper carousel option ..etc)
                It should be crowned the better phone even without a deal over all the Xiaomis

                  Now the price of the Pixel 6a has come down a little, it should be not just on the "midrange" list, but the clear number one pick.

                      Absolutely nothing interesting about this industry now - at least a few companies in the past had a go with fullscreen displays, no notch, no punch hole. But now?

                      If I had to buy a phone, I'd get an older flagship.

                        I recomend infinix device.

                          I want M4 Pro 5G but it's not sold in Indonesia.

                            My picks would be Realme 9 Pro+ and Galaxy A33 5G
                            Overall very disappointing year for smartphones.

                              Dear GSMArena team!!
                              You've already selected many more models from the different brands though, yet here I have something to say about realme's lenient behavior toward Realme 6 Pro. You have reviewed this device back in 2020 but as from my point of view this device is mid-range flagship.
                              Cause I've been this for more 2 and half years. And it's camera is more capable than that of cost of 35 thousand rupees and even more.
                              So i want you to be my voice to Realme company to upgrade this device as soon as it's possible.
                              Cause you're renowned authority that can convince anyone in easy way.
                              Thanks to read my note!!
                              Your Michael

                                If you can only afford a low end phone avoid Samsung. But for midranger and flagship go for Samsung with closed eyes. Cool interface and great support.
