Not every smartphone on sale is oregano. I have a serious problem with Amazon’s best-selling discount phones. Please, don’t buy the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11S for 181 euros, nor the Xiaomi Redmi 9A for 78 euros, unless you want to play petanque with them, which is the former with 4GB of memory and the latter with 2GB. Not to mention that you buy them on the verge of obsolescence (they are mobile phones with Android 10). Seriously, sometimes the deals don’t let you see the woods. Both 181 Euros and 78 Euros would be equally expensive. The best-selling products among Amazon’s ten best-selling mobile phones are real deals, with the Redmi Note 12 Pro for €298.44, a 17% discount, and the Xiaomi Poco X5 Pro, for €349.99, a 12% discount with, which I know do not have the same value as the previous siren songs, but they hide good values (I mean value for money, and the possibility that the mobile can last more than two years without interruption) . To its credit, the Poco X5 Pro has a higher-megapixel main camera (108 vs 50) and better audio. The Redmi Note 12 Pro could feature a faster processor, built-in optical image stabilizer as well as an HDR10-capable display. Of course, you need to know that both have the MIUI operating system on Android, which has its own peculiarities, but with the speed they offer, I think you will not care (I mean switching between applications, switching between lenses, When switching between cameras after use, enjoy the quality of the screen, which is 6.67-inch AMOLED in Redmi’s case and 6.7-inch AMOLED in POCO). They both have a decent 5,000mAh battery, which is more than enough for them.

The two mobiles compete in the category of mid-range smartphones that are not chestnuts with the Samsung Galaxy A23 5G being, at 226 euros, the rival to beat. Although it is true that the Samsung has less power (we are talking about 4GB of RAM), slower charging and a lower resolution main camera, it has a 120Hz OLED screen, equally good autonomy (the fact that its Reduced capacity means you can do less things and, therefore, take more battery) and four significant updates to the operating system, surpassing the two Xiaomi models. It is true that it can be slow, but also that it is pure Android and MIUI skin over Android. I think of the three models it’s more of a budget thing.
Don’t forget also the 128GB Samsung Galaxy M23 5G with 4GB RAM when it drops to under 200€ (it’s now 194€ on Amazon) and the Amazon seller is trustworthy, which is the best buy if you’re looking for a Samsung mobile and you Want the cheapest of the range. Although technically, I agree, it is not the cheapest, because the cheapest Samsung mobile is the Samsung Galaxy M13 128GB with 4GB RAM for 170.90 Euro.
In any case, if you’re not convinced by these two best-selling models in Amazon’s top ten, there are other models out there if you can pay a little more. From the new Pixel 7a, at 509 euros, to the One Plus Nord CE 2 at 341.35 euros. or even a 256 GB Samsung Galaxy S22 when it drops below 700 euros, which I already tell you it drops below that price and from here until Amazon Prime Day 2023, offers Will fall in and out. And you also have the Motorola Edge 30 Pro, which has a 6.7-inch OLED screen, Snapdragon 8 processor, 12GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for 599 euros.
