Add those higher resolution sensors and we've got the best all-rounder but that would negatively impact the sales of higher-tier Samsung devices so they have kept the camera resolution below 20 MP.

    For me, the best mid-range phone for students like me is the Samsung A52s 5g. If you are interested why I choose it, just review it :)

      Where is Nokia x2p? Has "good enough" craftsmanship has really taken over excellent engineering??

        Only 2 of the phones in this list are currently compatible with AT&Ts network. All the Xiaomi and Redme phones look interesting, but apparently they won't work with AT&T. I suppose that is a U.S. only issue. I wish GSM Arena included AT&T compatibility with the specs.

          When will you update this?

                only oled displays, oled is overrated even by gsmarena (facepalm)

                  A52s is 500$ and it's not smooth at all, Samsung software is slow and heavy. It costs too much for what it brings.

                        There's an offer for xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE where I can get my hands on one for €250 which makes it the best all-rounder at this price.
                        I just want to know if its primary camera is as good as the Galaxy A52s or should I just get the A52s for €338 ?

                          Redmi Note 10 Pro My great phone and my great company, I used every company's phone at this price but I found no better than the Note 10 Pro 6GB this phone, every feature except the body and glass of this phone, Wonderful, I hope Redmi will continue to do the same We will continue to provide you the best phone with quality and low price, I love Rudmi.

                            There you go... they added the Poco X3 pro, you just have to be patient (editors take time)
                            Yeah and Sony is not average consumer focused, with tall aspect ratios
                            M51 is more of a battery sipping monster, these are more overall all-rounders
