What is the best and most reliable smartphone: top 12 durable and quality brands

As you know, there is no limit to perfection. This truth is often evident in the history of technological development. For example, just half a century ago, even an ordinary portable phone surprised any skeptic. Today it has become commonplace, and users are constantly demanding more. In response, manufacturers of mobile technology are constantly offering new solutions. We’ve studied them and summarized which smartphones are considered the best and most reliable in 2022.

Google Pixel 5.

Starts our top smartphone from the technology giant, which gave the world the search engine of the same name, mail and even its own mobile operating system. Indeed, the lion’s share of smartphones around the world have the Android shell, supported by Google. This device is running Android 11.

Despite Android 12, which will be released on October 4, version 11 is considered the most stable and up-to-date. Fans of leaving phones in dangerous places will be pleased with the degree of protection IP68 and installed Corning Gorilla Glass 6. The processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G bundled with 8GB of RAM.

Advantages:

  • 128GB of memory;
  • clean Android;
  • optimized software.

Disadvantages:

  • low battery life;
  • screen.

Price: 58 500 rubles.

OnePlus Nord N10 5G

An excellent choice for those who like to spend their free time in mobile demanding games, but prefer not to spend on a mobile device. The fact is that under the cover hides a fairly powerful for this price category octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 processor.

Additional performance is achieved by 6 GB of RAM. However, we decided to refer this model to the gaming model because of the IPS screen with a diagonal of 6.49 inches and a pixel density of 406 ppi. A clear picture is ensured. However, the refresh rate of the screen is only 90 Hz, which manifests itself in the form of sharp camera movements in some shooters. In general, all phones of this brand released after 2018 are excellent for games.

Advantages:

  • clear screen;
  • cost;
  • 128GB of memory.

Disadvantages:

  • photo quality;
  • slippery body.

Price: 20,000 rubles.

OnePlus 8 Pro.

As we said above, we can praise this brand, as well as give examples of successful builds, forever. Only if the previous model featured a low price, then this one belongs to the price range between the middle and premium class. This is justified by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor and 8GB of RAM.

Simultaneous joy and sadness caused the pixel density, equal to 513 ppi. This is good, because the picture becomes clearer and brighter, but it is bad, because there is a strong load on the battery. The capacity of the latter is only 4510 mAh, which is enough only for half a day. This is at natural load, but at game time autonomy is halved.

Advantages:

  • crisp screen;
  • performance;
  • Degree of protection: IP68.

Disadvantages:

  • autonomy;
  • Weak optimization of the system.

Price: 48 500 rubles.

Google Pixel 4a.

It is interesting that this model was released a month before the release of the Pixel 5, but at the same time differs from its close descendant. During the assembly, the emphasis was not on performance, but on the budget. There was no point in releasing a powerful smartphone that customers would not be able to afford.

To date, the model has an OLED screen with a diagonal of 5.8 inches and a pixel density of 444 ppi. Instead of Gorilla Glass v6 (like the fifth version) only Gorilla Glass v3 is used. This protective glass is not as resistant to external influences. Performance has been noticeably trimmed at the expense of 6GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G CPU.

Advantages:

  • screen;
  • cost;
  • optimized software.

Disadvantages:

  • Battery life – 11.5 hours;
  • No wireless charging.

Price: 34 500 rubles.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T 5G

The Chinese company has already made it clear at the start of its activities that it will fight for the leadership in the ranking. This model is on the border of the budget and middle classes. The first thing that was a little frustrating was the unconventional allocation of priorities. Given the small budget, the company could have spent it on a more powerful processor, but it opted for NFC, 5G and Gorilla Glass 5 protective glass.

For average performance, it installed a MediaTek Dimensity 800 processor bundled with 4GB of RAM. But the mid-range processor doesn’t encroach on all the resources of the battery, which has a capacity of 5,000 mAh.

Advantages:

  • battery life;
  • camera;
  • protection against splashes and scratches.

Disadvantages:

  • Average performance;
  • Weak optimization software.

Price: 16 000 rubles.

Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC

The phone does not claim to be a gaming or photoflagman. Instead, it is remembered by buyers for its high autonomy and durability. Hidden under the cover is a 5160 mAh battery. This is enough to keep the device running for days on end. Especially pleasing is the borderless design of the phone and installed IPS screen with a diagonal of 6.67 inches.

The high performance of the device is achieved by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G processor. The camera in the device is slightly above average. This is justified by the price of the device. There simply wasn’t enough money for good flagship pictures.

The advantages:

  • bright screen;
  • autonomy;
  • performance.

Disadvantages:

  • camera;
  • “raw” software.

Price: 19 000 rubles.

HUAWEI Y5 Prime.

Cheap and sulfurous – there is no other way to say about this device. Those who decide to save money on a mobile gadget will have to face an old-fashioned display with large borders at the top and bottom. This is only one of the problems. The display is IPS with a diagonal of 5.45 inches. On board is Android Oreo (8.1).

The MediaTek MT6739 processor and 2GB of RAM are responsible for performance. It’s modest, there’s nothing to say. But what if we turn these minuses into solid pluses? For a paltry sum of money, the buyer gets a quality “phone caller” with support for social networks and messengers. For work, you do not need more.

The advantages:

  • cost;
  • weight – 142 grams;
  • compactness.

Disadvantages:

  • low performance;
  • microUSB.

Price: 5 000 rubles.

Huawei Mate 40 Pro.

From budget to premium class. It’s even hard to believe that this and the previous model were produced by the same company. The fact that the device is equipped with a borderless OLED screen with a diagonal of 6.76 inches and a pixel density of 456 ppi. It is impossible to find flaws in this screen, except to complain about the lack of AMOLED.

On board is Android 10 without preinstalled Google services. In general, when Google stopped providing the Chinese brand with its updates and services, critics unanimously predicted the company’s collapse. How wrong they were…

The manufacturer replaced lost services with its own and added some features. Even the hardware components are their own. For example, the Huawei Kirin 9000 processor and 8GB of RAM are hidden under the lid. The failsafe system coupled with proprietary components made the device a super-performing gadget.

Advantages:

  • 256GB of memory;
  • Huawei SuperCharge support;
  • Degree of protection: IP68.

Disadvantages:

  • No Google services.

Price: 90 000 rubles.

Samsung Galaxy S10+.

Phone with a very unusual rectangular design. This is not only an idea of the designers, but also a technical necessity. The fact is that the device is equipped with three cameras for 16, 12 and 12 MP. The high quality of these cameras requires a special matrix, which requires quite a lot of space. In general, most of the phones from this company are famous for their cameras. Others are attracted by the Samsung Exynos 9820 processor and 8 GB RAM. With such a build, any game will fly on Ultra.

The advantages:

  • performance;
  • the design;
  • camera.

Disadvantages:

  • low autonomy.

Price: 49,000 rubles.

Vivo Y91c.

We are back to the budget guys again. For its price, the device is quite consistent with the requirements for the characteristics. But such distinctive features, typical of Vivo, were not noticed in the smartphone. Inside there is a classic processor for budget cars MediaTek Helio P22 and 2 GB of RAM. Another “dialer” for work, but no more.

The advantages:

  • Matching price and quality;
  • bright screen;
  • autonomy.

Disadvantages:

  • camera.

Price: 7 000 rubles.

Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max.

The peak of the development of “apple” products. Despite the release of version 13, this model is considered the most popular all over the world. It is famous for its optimization. The fact is that Apple does not use the Android OS, but develops its own, which perfectly “sits” on the hardware component, it is also produced by the company itself.

Simply put, Apple does not like to cooperate and works independently, controlling all stages of production. For example, because of the Apple A14 Bionic processor and 6GB of RAM, the device hardly ever freezes. Also, the smartphone meets the IP68 protection standard.

Advantages:

  • a fine-tuned OS;
  • screen;
  • performance.

Disadvantages:

  • Overpriced.

Price: 85 500 rubles.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G

It is difficult to imagine the rating without this model. In the S lineup, Samsung produces only flagship smartphones with high characteristics. Let’s start, perhaps, with the camera, which phones of this brand are so famous for. There are four lenses on the back, the largest of which has a resolution of 108 MP. Fans of mobile shooters will be pleased with a large screen with a diagonal of 6.8 inches and the processor Samsung Exynos 2100.

The advantages:

  • screen;
  • photo quality;
  • performance.

Disadvantages:

  • Low battery life.

Price: 76,380 rubles.
