"Wondering which smartphone to go for in the VFM segment? You're at the right place"
The smartphone industry is churning out powerful yet affordable devices faster than ever and options such as the LeEco Le 2 (first impressions), Lenovo ZUK Z1 (review) and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (review) have already taken the market by a storm. With the recent unveiling of the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note (first impressions), we might just have another potential candidate in our midst. So which one of these options is the perfect choice for you? Let's find out.
Although all four smartphones offer similar features, customers are bound to feel overwhelmed when it comes to choosing one. To set things straight, here is our comparison of these value-for-money smartphones.
When it comes to the quality of the display, there is little to demarcate the four options. The smartphones come equipped with 5.5-inch full HD displays with a pixel density of 401ppi. The IPS LCD panels are crisp, and display a good amount of detail thanks to the high pixel densities. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 however proves to be more legible under sunlight thanks to its Sunlight Display technology which automatically brightness the colours on screen when its sensors detect excessive light. With a screen-to-body ratio of about 74.2 percent, the LeEco Le 2 offers the most screen real estate in the least amount of space. It is closely followed by the Redmi Note 3 which has a screen-to-body ratio of 72.9 percent.
In a nutshell, all these smartphones make a strong case for themselves with nifty features. As it’s clear from the comparison, all the device are great choices and you couldn’t go wrong with any of them. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 still checks out as one of the best overall options with a great build, stellar battery life and swift performance. The LeEco Le 2 is perfect for entertainment with the bundled-in multimedia streaming options and the best processor in range. However the lack of a dedicated microSD card slot and 3.5mm headphone jack might sway your mind to the other options. For those who want an exceptional camera performance and at the same time want absolute control over their device with a no frills android experience, Lenovo’s ZUK Z1 takes the throne for you. Lastly, if you are looking for an option with great looks, brand reliability and ease of multitasking, seal the deal with latest offering on the block, the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note.
