I wonder how long everyone's replacement cycle is? Now the phone year after year out of new products, but always feel as if the upgrade is not so great, not to mention the camera upgrade to upgrade to go, most of them are not much better than imx766 performance, CPU for the vast majority of users seem to be excess. Basically, Qualcomm's flagship U performance from 865 onwards are enough, the masterpiece does not open full special effects, basically competent, League of Legends open 90 frames after the fluctuations can only rely on the digital bloggers of the actual test to see the difference between different generations of cell phones.
So do we really need to buy the latest flagship or sub-flagship every year? Personally, I don't think it's necessary for most people. Instead, buy last year's flagship or sub-flagship this year for better value for money.
This article shares six of last year's widely acclaimed sub-flagship phones, their performance to this year is still enough to fight, while after half a year to a year of listing time, is near the end of the sales cycle, it is the most cost-effective time.
1, oppo reno6 pro+
Blue factory green factory has always been not known for its cost performance, but as a line brand, the whole workmanship and value of the machine has always been quite advantageous. Although the reno series has now been updated twice a year, but now the oppo reno6 pro+ compared to the latest reno8+, I personally do not think it falls behind at all. So two days ago I also bought one for my family.
The reno6 pro+ is equipped with last year's Snapdragon 870, both performance and good thermal performance, front and rear dual-curved design grip feel hanging reno8 series a street, 65W fast charging, 90Hz high brush, X-axis linear motor, and reno series used so far green factory in recent years the most successful tuning camera imx766. balanced performance without shortcomings.
The price of the top version during the 618 period has also dropped to less than 3,000 yuan, taking into account the excellent feel, value, workmanship and after-sales service, is also a rare and quite cost-effective phone for the green factory.
2, OnePlus 9RT
The phone I'm currently using. I didn't realize it had already dropped by more than a thousand. A plus 9RT is between last year's double 11, a plus launched the annual sub-flagship, although the use of the Fire Dragon 888 processor, but the use of 888 era almost the most exaggerated five space cooling, cooling area of 19000mm2, from my personal feelings usually play the original gods do not pursue full special effects, heat is completely acceptable, and very smooth.
Metal frame + silk glass back cover, the face is very resistant, 600Hz touch response, gaming 3 antenna, and 120Hz high brush Samsung E4 straight screen together to provide a good overall gaming performance, coupled with 65T full-blooded version of fast charging, Haptic vibration motor and Sony imx766 camera, a plus 9RT overall configuration can be said to be very powerful and balanced. Both the game and daily use experience are good.
During this year's 618 8 + 256 version down to 2399 yuan, 12 + 256 for 2599 yuan, compared to the same price of this year's new machines, the overall performance is basically the same, the body texture and photo performance is clearly better, but also this year's 618 must see models.
3, iQOO 8
The biggest highlight of iQOO8 is the 120W fast charging, less than 20 minutes to fully charged, this performance is also placed in this year is the absolute first tier of phones within 3000 yuan.
Other configurations are also Snapdragon 888 processor, large heat dissipation, 120Hz high brush screen, but Origin OS will turn off high brush in many applications, which is a bit difficult. The photo part is imx598 camera, although it is indeed a little older but relying on the excellent tuning of the blue factory and OIS optical stabilization, the actual imaging effect is also very good.
The price is a little more expensive than the 9RT, no 8 + 256 version, 12 + 256 version expensive 200 yuan, depending on whether you are willing to buy for the super fast charging.
4, Redmi K40S
Although this year's K50 has switched to the MTK series CPU with good energy performance, last year's K40S is still a great value for purchase.
Snapdragon 870 processor, large liquid cooling, 120Hz Samsung high brush E4 screen, plus 67W fast charging and a camera with OIS optical stabilization, the overall configuration is very balanced, all of which contributed to the K40S last year for quite a long time a machine hard to find. Xiaomi series ancestral infrared function is also an important reason for many friends to choose it.
The top version on the Jingdong hands-on price of 1989 yuan, compared to last year's price reduction is not much, but can be open to buy without grabbing is also a big progress.
5, Glory 60
Since the independent out, the glory series is not much cost-effective, mainly and the blue factory and green factory offline fight, but the face is also really high.
2000 yuan out of this price point, glory 60 and the new sub-flagship glory 70 than the processor is 778G to 778Gplus, the daily use should not feel the difference. The double curved screen, thin body design and 120Hz high brush screen, 66W fast charging these as the same. The middle frame material is still plastic, more or less seems to be a lack of sincerity.
In other aspects almost unchanged, glory 70 compared to the 60 advantage is mainly in the camera, after all, 60 back this 100 million pixel camera last year seems to be not well tuned, this year's imx800 performance is really good. The difference between the two generations of phones is currently 400 yuan who is actually worth more depending on whether you pay attention to your photos.
6, Xiaomi 11
Mi 11 experienced the first half of last year's flop, the second half of the year is considered to stabilize the position. From the configuration and price alone, we will always feel that Redmi is back-stabbing Xiaomi. But cost-effective brand and each main brand even in the case of the same configuration, many of us can not see part of the material and workmanship is completely different.
The price of the 12+256 version of the Mi 11 is 2899, while the 8+256 is 2749, and the page says "free charger" which is frankly magical. The Snapdragon 888 CPU, fast charging only 55W, but support 50W wireless charging, Display Mate A+ certified quad curved flexible screen and Harman Kardon dual speakers are very competitive. The photo performance is also in line with the level of the sub-flagship.
Home comparison, punching price and the two is not a big gap, Mi 11 is really more worth buying than Mi 12.
