At the beginning, the gap between high-end and mid-range smart phones has deepened considerably over time. We see a shrinkage that is partly explained by the desire of some manufacturers to offer intermediate terminals. This positioning strategy in the mobile phone market is good, especially for the buyer, who finds a much broader catalog of products. This selection will undoubtedly allow you to see more clearly before going to your favorite dealer!


  1. Google Nexus 5X

A new model of the giant Google manufactured by LG, the Nexus 5X is a high-end phone that has the merit of having a good ratio performance – value for money. This Smartphone mounted on a chassis of 137,84 x 69,17 x 8,59 mm and a weight of 130g. The Nexus 5X delivers stunning components such as a full HD screen (1920 x 1080 pixels – 432 dpi), 4.95 inches , a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor running at 2.3 GHz, an Adreno 330 GPU, 3 GB RAM, and an internal storage capacity of 16 or 32 GB (no possibility of extending memory due to the absence of a microSD card reader).

These solid elements make this 5X a robust terminal capable of displaying beautiful colors on the screen, easily supporting a system running Android 4.4-KitKat and ensuring the execution of tasks in a perfectly fluid way (navigation in menus, opening and downloading applications, surfing the web and social networks, video game sessions, music, etc.). A battery of 2300 mAh limits its operation to an average of 9h. The device consumes a lot of energy, except in case of more sustained use where it is able to hold a good day. In addition to these two limiting points, the Google Nexus 5X proves to be a perfect product for any individual looking for a smartphone easy to use, with a beautiful slab, reactive and above all, powerful.


  1. Huawei P8 Lite

The Chinese Huawei comes to strike a big blow in the market of smartphones mid-range with its newcomer: the P8 Lite version 2017.  Freshly disembarked, this one does not fail to make eye to the editorial through a technical sheet close to 6X. Components include: a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display with a very good display quality (1920 x 1080 pixels resolution – 424 dpi – 1838: 1 contrast – brightness of 636 cd / m), an October-core Kirin 655 processor running at 2.1 GHz and a Mali-T830MP2 GPU.

A nice configuration, which wants to be coupled with 3 GB of RAM and an internal storage capacity fixed at 16 GB. This kind of pattern is also repeated during any playful use, the smartphone being a reliable friend when playing videos, listening to music or for any part of a video game. And if one could have believed that these multimedia activities would have a negative impact on the autonomy of the toy signed Huawei, it is in no way. Powered by a 3000 mAh battery, the device displays an intensive use time estimated at 13 hours in a row and approximately one and a half days under a more moderate use. Clearly, there is no need to constantly lug around with its charger in the pocket! Finally, there is a 12MP camera on the back and 8MP on the front, both displaying a high level of detail and sharpness, even in the video. This is the excellent work of Huawei on this one, which delivers a P8 Lite version 2017 certainly.


  1. Huawei P9 Lite

Another product created by Huawei, the P9 Lite, which features an elegant and refined visual, as was the P9. All that to say that the design measures only 146.8 x 72.6 x 7.5 mm and weighs only 143 grams are very successful. Among these metal frames are two sensors, one 13 Mpx at the front and the other at 8 Mpx at the rear. So do not expect great rendering with the P9 Lite. Fortunately, fast autofocus and the ability to capture videos in Full HD are there to raise the level with regards to the photo part.

For the rest of the phone, one finds first a screen Full HD (1920 x 1080p) of 5.2 inches which displays a resolution of 423 dpi and a maximum brightness of 470 cd / m.  It is ideal for reading texts, even outdoors. This beautiful display quality is also honored when browsing Android 6.0 (EMUI 4.1), during surfing sessions on internet pages, during video playback or game games.  The P9 Lite is very comfortable in terms of multimedia use, made possible by the power of a CortexA-53 ARM Kirin 650 processor (4 x 1.7 GHz and 4 x 2 GHz), d a Mali-T830 chip, 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory essential to store all the data of the device. This P9 Lite precisely, it would be only dust without the presence of a Lithium-Ion battery of 3000 mAh which allows holding it for almost 13:30. With serious assets in hand, the P9 Lite of Huawei finally imposes itself as a smartphone “good to do”, except in the picture.


  1. Motorola Moto X Play

Although it is not the best in design and battery due to its weight and thickness, the Moto X Play is a smartphone that pulls the game at all other levels. The 5.5-inch Full HD LCD plays a leading role in the overall quality of this mid-range smartphone. Details, sharpness and good brightness constitute the very essence of this superb slab. It is a real pleasure for the eyes that makes sense as soon as you stroll in the simple and purified menus of this phone running Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop). The interface, well optimized and arranged, allows taking advantage of the system, which, it should be noted, occupies nearly 5.10 GB on the internal memory (16 GB in total but can be increased via a card microSD).

Nevertheless, it does not hurt the smart phone, which runs smoothly using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM and an Adreno 405 chip. Rest assured, however, there are no problems when playing video files in HD / Full HD or music files. Its 21 MPx sensor, efficient HDR mode, convincing night mode and fast autofocus make this Moto X Play a great tool for sharp and detailed shots. Motorola plays the robustness card by integrating a 3630 mAh battery with its model, which can hold 13h30 (moderate use) and about two days in normal use.


  1. Samsung Galaxy A5

Samsung has the product you need and it is, in this regard, No. 1 in our selection: the Samsung Galaxy A5. We have a very successful terminal in terms of look, with the carefully curved finishes and which brings complete satisfaction in terms of handling and handling. The most effective design, as is the fingerprint reader located on the front. Beautiful work!

The machine features a beautiful 5.2-inch slab with Super AMOLED technology. This makes the A5 one of the best in terms of the display with a maximum brightness of 545 cd / m, a resolution of 424 dpi and an infinite contrast ratio. The A5 also turns without any hitch with the 3 GB of RAM and the chip Exynos 7880 (8 hearts ARM CortexA-53 1.9 GHz) which contribute to its smooth operation. In other words, it is an ideal toy for any type of multimedia use, whether for high-resolution video playback, music listening (loudspeaker delivering very good sound without distortion) or playing video (chip MaliT-860).  Through a 3000 mAh battery, ensures endurance for nearly 17h30 in case of advanced use (streaming, games, …) and about two days and a half in normal use.
