Top 10 trending phones of week 45

Chip, 11 November 2019

Last week the four most popular smartphones in our database were all made by Xiaomi and this time the Chinese maker has expanded to cover the entire top 6.

The Mi Note 10 was on top before it was announced so it was no surprise that it's still on the podium in the week that the company made it official. It was however pushed down to second place by the Pro version with the first 8P lens on a smartphone that made a debut alongside it.

Then we have the Redmi Note 8 Pro, which also took a step back, but still manage to fend off the Chinese version of the Mi Note 10 - the Mi CC9 Pro.

Another surprising device to come from the Mi Note 10 event - the Redmi Note 8T - comes in fifth, ahead of the Redmi Note 8. There's barely anything separating these two in terms of clicks, much like there's little to set them apart in terms of hardware.

The Samsung Galaxy A50 follows in seventh, ahead of the vivo S5 - the rumored mid-ranger making a rather surprising appearance in the top 10.

The top 10 is completed by two Realme phones that are now becoming somewhat regulars here - the X2 Pro and the 5 Pro.

That means we lose the Samsung Galaxy M30s, the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max and the Redmi 8.

They were announced way back, earlier than August except for Note10, which was released on August. Also: cranky because you are still bested by A10 and A50 eh?
