The best value smartphones you can't get in the United States

The best value smartphones you can't get in the United States

From an outsider’s perspective, the stateside smartphone market looks more carrier-driven with unwavering platform loyalty and consumer preference largely constricted to two top brands. Meanwhile, those in other regions are more accepting of phones from emerging makers that conveniently undercut their mainstream counterparts, often without making many compromises. OnePlus once led the burgeoning budget flagship segment, but many of its peers from China have since joined in to take a slice of the pie. Beyond OnePlus, which expanded its US availability not too long ago, there is a whole lot of other brands that you’ve probably never heard of in the US but are thriving elsewhere.

Realme X2 Pro review: Incredible value, but plenty of room for camera improvements

Realme X2 Pro review: Incredible value, but plenty of room for camera improvements

Realme might be the newest and least well known of the BBK Electronics family that includes Oppo, Vivo, and OnePlus, but it’s certainly no less ambitious. After starting out as an Oppo sub-brand it was given license to operate more independently in 2017, and since then Realme has sold so many devices that it’s now the fastest-growing smartphone maker in the world. Its foray into the European market only really began in earnest this year, but aggressive pricing looks to be to paying dividends as it goes after more established Chinese rivals such as Xiaomi and Honor/Huawei.

The X2 Pro is the company’s first proper flagship, and it quickly grabbed our attention when it was introduced to the European market in October due to the insane spec to price ratio.

Realme copies a little too much from Redmi, puts ads on its phones

Some folks see the Chinese budget brand Realme, a BBK subsidiary and OPPO spin-off, as something of a Xiaomi/Redmi clone — even just the names share more than chance would allow. Whether they are or aren't, true to that badge, they're set to ape one unappreciated feature from those devices: ads built right into the OS. At least you can turn them off if you want to (for now).

Realme’s AirPods clone supports wireless charging, USB-C, and costs $56

Despite being late to the party, the AirPods undoubtedly managed to remodel the true wireless earbuds category. Though they play nice only with Apple devices, many Android users have secretly wanted those iconic white stems sticking out of their ears. To fill that gap, Realme, like many other brands, has stepped in with a pair of AirPods (1st gen) clones, called Buds Air, that bring a few premium features to the table without breaking the bank.

(Update: International schedule) Color OS 7 will soon bring Android 10 to Oppo phones

(Update: International schedule) Color OS 7 will soon bring Android 10 to Oppo phones

Oppo has made a concerted effort to sell more products in Europe recently, with its Reno 10x Zoom fronting its campaign. The hardware has been pretty impressive, but the software experience still leaves a little to be desired — Color OS isn't as well received by western users. This situation could be set to improve soon though, as Oppo has unveiled the latest version of its skin, based on Android 10.
