Thought about this when I saw Xiaomi on the list. I read reviews on Chinese phones on Amazon occasionally. They usually work well, but sometimes not.I know this is a "global" site, but when you put up a list of phone, how about including
what countries they work in. Some won't work inside the USA, some won't work in other
The cost comparison is with the S21 FE, not the mid-range A53. The latter is being discussed for its choice of sluggish SoC.This article is inaccurate in claiming the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy A53. The A53 is about $350, which is $150 cheaper than the S20 which still goes for about $500 retail.
Problem with some of these phones is the lack of cellular bands the phones support. Which is why the pixel/samsung/iphone are the best choices here.
What is the point if you are missing a chunk of bands your carrier supports.
You're correct on the pixel density part, but then the SE looks and feels outdated when placed alongside the iPhone 11 that has much narrower bezels and a larger, easier to use screen. It's why Apple has had more success with bigger iPhones because a majority of users consider screen estate (and more battery life) a worthy trade-off to pocket-friendliness/compactness."too much of a sacrifice in terms of the outdated, low-res display" - who wrote this?
iPhone 11 has a resolution of 1792x828, and it's the exact same pixel density as the iPhone SE with its slightly smaller 1334x750 display. The 11 also doesn't have a touch ID which to some people is still unacceptable.
The SE should have been in this list.
