Always a lot of smartphones to discover despite the inexorable passage of time. We get down to the task with pleasure, but sometimes we have to lift the nose of the handlebars a little to take stock.
After a colorful month of April, it’s time for a new monthly report. Here are the 3 best recent smartphones of May 2022 on Frandroid. These are the phones tested recently by the editorial staff and that we allow ourselves to recommend if you plan to make a purchase soon. The opportunity to remember that the French Days are taking place right now.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G The safe bet
Xiaomi remains a staple in entry-level and mid-range markets. The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G does not dishonor this title by offering a very interesting price-quality ratio. The design is well cared for, the 120 Hz OLED screen offers contrast, beautiful colors and fluidity, while the main sensor does well (depending on the situation).
Added to this is a solid autonomy coupled with a nice fast charge. Nothing to say, we are well served. But before completely making your choice, also look at what is being done on the competition side. We’ll talk about that a little further down.
Oppo Find X5 The high-end owl
Even at the top of the range, it’s not just the “Pro” models that are interesting. Proof of this is with the attractive Oppo Find X5. The latter makes some well-balanced compromises compared to the real flagsip of the brand. This does not prevent it from maintaining very good photo quality, a super OLED and 120 Hz screen (not adaptive) and a very pleasant interface.
We don’t get tired of the very well-refined design either. Beware of the somewhat tight autonomy, fortunately saved by the beautiful fast charge. Finally, the Oppo Find X5 shows that there is a good card to play for smartphones that want to be high-end without being premium.
Realme 9 Pro Plus The serious suitor
We were talking above about competition on smartphones with good value for money. Enter the Realme 9 Pro Plus. In addition to a pleasant design in hand and a well-calibrated 90 Hz OLED screen, it benefits from a highly customizable and very appreciable software experience.
Note the great capabilities of its main photo sensor (which is also surprisingly good on portraits) and the powerful fast charge supplied with it. The Realme 9 Pro Plus is determined to show that Xiaomi is not the only one playing in this court.
