Xiaomi mi6 is the best buy 'till now this year.Paid 400€ for it,works like a dream,looks like a italian supercar.For half the price of Pixel,S8,U11,XZp...common,really.Only downside is-couldn't find a blue one when I bought it..:()
Where is the MI5 it's the best value smartphone on the market at the moment. It can be had for under 200 euros
leo_sk, 29 Jul 2017Include xiaomi redmi note 3 in sub 200$ range. With sd650 it blows the competition in performance Or the Redmi note 4 MediaTek it's even faster than the Redmi note 3
Bought lg g6 and it does have earphones inside as opposed to what your review says.
Redmi Note 4 and the Galaxy J7 (2016) are great sub $200 devices.
For under $300, I would go for the Moto Z Play or the Lenovo P2.
ZTE Axon 7, Mi Max 2 or the Mi 5S Plus are great smartphones for under $400.
Under $600, it is the S7 edge all the way!
And for over $600, I would suggest the Galaxy S8+ or the XZ Premium.
Boebus666, 29 Jul 2017The Google Pixel is available here in India but almost no one wants to buy it because its a tu... moreThere is no phone available in India at that price bracket which is any better than a Pixel, U11 is probably in some category that's it. So stop posting nonsense and use your true turd S8 or whatever you use.
Funny thing, no word about mono/3D audio recording. Is it not important?

AnonD-649787, 29 Jul 2017Great to see the Galaxy A5(2017) in there!! Absolutely amazing phone. Has all the amazing feat... moreMid range will never reach flagship. You will feel it when after one year, it doesn't get any updates and it begins lagging and falling apart. At that price, an older S would have been better
The mi6 doesn't cost over 400€ anywhere in EMEA now. I doubt you can't get it for less on the US as well.
Actually, it might be closer to 300€ than 400€.

And I care about software support because I use my device as long as it gets updates (sometimes even longer) as I don't count myself to the disposable society
Great to see the Galaxy A5(2017) in there!! Absolutely amazing phone. Has all the amazing features that flagships have some more than others like the always on display and water proofing which some flagships do not have!! All you have to do is compromise on the camera and since i dont use the camera too often its the perfect phone for me!!
P.S Its display is as good as all flagships out there which have 1080p resoluton maybe even a little bit better!!!
I like how GSMArena's editors choices for this smartphone buyer's guide . GG to all smartphone makers who made into the list .

Anonymous, 28 Jul 2017Another questionable choice is to not include the iPhone 7 in the 600+ (its slightly above tha... moreIf you need to have the fastest chipset, you have to buy a new device every year. Why care about software support longevity?
And vice versa, if you keep a device for several years, why care whether it was marginally faster than everything else on day 1?
