Which smartphone is worth buying for 1500 PLN? For this money, we will get a well-equipped phone with above average performance, with good camera and rich communication facilities. In the list of the top 10 smartphones up to PLN 1,500 you will find both medium-sized and flagship models.
Recently, I made a list of the best smartphones up to 1000 PLN. At this price, you can buy really decent phones that work great in most tasks, but sometimes you just pay a little extra to get a much better model. For about PLN 1500 we will get a smartphone, which will be enough for a long time, so I decided to take a closer look at the phones from this price category. By creating a combination of smartphones up to PLN 1,500 , I decided to stretch the rules a bit, so you will also find here a few tons of more expensive proposals. Easy – the price of none of them even approaches PLN 2,000. I just think that sometimes it is worth adding an additional PLN 100 to buy a really good phone . In this post I focused on the devices available in the official Polish distribution. If you are primarily interested in models from the Middle Kingdom, the appropriate proposals for 1500 zlotys can be found in our TOP-10 ranking of smartphones from GearBest. The models described in this guide can often be found in various types of promotions, which we keep you posted on gsmManiaKa or through maniaKalny profil Łowcy Promocji on Facebook. Follow us on a regular basis and you will be able to buy your dream smartphone at the best possible price.
Motorola Moto Z
Motorola Moto Z is a flagship from 2016, which still keeps a good shape, and in addition can be bought for great money . For these two reasons, I can recommend this model with a clean heart even in 2018.Motorola Moto Z boasts a good and large Super AMOLED screen, which features infinite contrast and deep black. On such a display you are happy to watch movies or browse internet resources. The Snapdragon 820 processor, coupled with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB UFS internal memory, ensures fast performance. Moto Z can also boast a rich communication infrastructure, but it does not have a 3.5 mm jack connector. The icing on the cake is the service of Moto Mods – thanks to the dedicated accessories we can freely expand the capabilities of the phone. Unfortunately, we do not get them as a gift, so it's an additional expense. Is it worth it – answer yourself. >>> Our Motorola Moto Z test
Xiaomi Mi 6
In the official Polish distribution, buying Xiaomi Mi 6 for about 1500 PLN is still out of the question (except for periodic promotions), but you can always use offers from importers or Chinese stores, such as GearBest or Geekbuying .Xiaomi Mi 6 I know perfectly well – after all, I have been using it privately for several months. This is a hell of a fast and powerful smartphone , equipped with Snapdragon 835 and 6 GB RAM, so if you are primarily interested in high performance, for about 1500 PLN it is difficult to find something better. On the plus side you can also include the presence of Dual SIM, solid communication infrastructure, really good quality and eye catching appearance, although fans of frameless smartphones are unlikely to be particularly impressed. I can also praise the great time of work on one charge – Xiaomi Mi 6 will calmly stand the pace of any user, allowing you to use all functions for a full day. Xiaomi Mi 6 is a good photosmartphone, especially in its price class, although it is still missing from the top. Its strong point is primarily portraits, which look better than those generated by the much more expensive smartphones Huawei or Samsung with telephoto lenses. >>> Recommended: impressions from using Xiaomi Mi 6 after 9 months
Once, the LG G6 could be called one of the least profitable flagships on the market. Now it's one of the best choices for those who want to buy an above-average smartphone for a reasonable price. This is the LG G6, sold in the official distribution for a little over 1,500 zlotys , and in promotions even cheaper.The LG G6 has many strengths. One of them is the FullVision display, which occupies a large part of the front, thanks to which the manufacturer managed to fit a 5.7 "screen in a waterproof housing with dimensions similar to the average smartphone with a screen of approx. 5.3 inches. This was possible not only due to the minimization of frames, but also the change of the screen aspect ratio to 18: 9. The smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 821 processor with Adreno 530 graphics. This set calmly deals with demanding applications and games, in benchmarks demolishing many medium-sized chips. It has been connected to 4 GB of RAM, and yet some of the flagship of 2018 have this amount of memory. My favorite feature of the LG G6 is a wide-angle camera that allows you to take great landscape photos. This solution will be perfect in the outdoors. >>> Our test LG G6
HTC U Ultra
HTC U Ultra is a cool smartphone, which dates back to 2017. Thanks to this, it is now possible to buy it for a reasonable price – the price fluctuates in the vicinity of PLN 1100-1400 , depending on the type of distribution.HTC U Ultra is one of the best photographic smartphones in the medium class. The 12-megapixel camera with f / 1.8 light is based on the UltraPixel 2 technology and is supported by the image stabilization system. The phone records great quality photos in almost all conditions. It does not matter if we take a picture on a cloudy day or after dark – every time the correct number of details is recorded and the color reproduction is natural. If you are looking for a phone with good audio, HTC U Ultra will not let you down. Although the manufacturer gave up the 3.5 mm jack connector, however, he put on a few proprietary solutions, so listening to music on the headphones is pure pleasure. In addition, the HTC U Ultra boast of stereo speakers. HTC fans are well aware that the strong advantage of any smartphone of this brand is the HTC Sense overlay. It is characterized not only by its extraordinary stability and high fluidity of operation, but above all by its reasonable functionality. Taiwanese added only those features that they considered practical. The SoC Snapdragon 821 takes care of the problem-free operation of the system, supporting 4 GB of RAM. >>> Our test HTC U Ultra
Huawei P10 is currently one of the cheapest flagships from 2017. In reputable stores, you can buy it for approx. PLN 1599 , so he is a deadly competitor for, among others similarly priced Huawei P20 Lite.Huawei P10 did not bring anything new to the world of mobile technology, but it can be enjoyed and it is also great. For some users a big plus of this model will be a fast fingerprint reader, mounted in a beam under a 5.1-inch Full HD screen. This phone has been equipped with a double camera . One has a resolution of 20 MP (monochrome) and the other 12 MP (RGB). Lenses are signed with the Leica logo. Huawei P10 is a great photo companion, which works in almost all conditions, which is due not only to refined software, but also to almost flawless autofocus. The Huawei P10 is a satisfyingly fast smartphone, which the solid Kirin 960 cares for. >>> We recommend: Huawei P10 after six months
In contrast to Huawei, the Honor brand primarily puts a great price-quality ratio. Thanks to (usually) reasonable compromises, flagship Honor is noticeably cheaper than the equivalent of the Huawei logo. This is even the case for Honor 9, whose current price is PLN 1399 .Honor 9 boasts a double camera that generates very decent photos. One lens has 20 megapixels and is monochrome, the other has 12 megapixels and collects information about colors. The whole allows you to use a double zoom without losing quality. Only optical stabilization of the image was lacking for happiness, but Honor 9 is still a good photomartphone. Honor 9 components do not raise any serious reservations. The Kirin 960 is a very solid chip, and its combination with 4 GB of RAM memory allows for fast and smooth work every day. It's a pity that the internal memory is an older type of eMMC 5.1, but it is difficult to notice on a daily basis. >>> Our Honor 9 test
ASUS ZenFone 4
The initial price of ASUS ZenFone 4 was exaggerated, but in the face of the next generation's market launch, the manufacturer decided to lower it, thanks to which we will buy the phone for less than PLN 1,500 . This is not a perfect model, but it is worth being interested in.ASUS ZenFone 4 is a mid-range smartphone. The manufacturer was not crazy with components, but he put on a proven and energy-efficient unit Snapdragon 630, which drives the device well enough so that the user does not complain about the speed and smoothness of operation. Zenka 's strength is a double camera . The main camera is equipped with a Sony IMX362 sensor with a resolution of 12 MP, and the additional, wide-angle lens is based on an 8 MP matrix, and its field of view is impressive 120 degrees. Thanks to this ZenFone 4 not only makes good photos with a standard camera, but it is also able to register a picture covering a large space, making it ideally suited for a variety of trips. ASUS ZenFone 4 also deserves praise for the rich communication facilities. There is only one thing that is missing for full happiness – it's about the NFC module. >>> Our ASUS ZenFone 4 test
Sony Xperia XA2
The initial price of the Sony Xperia XA2 was a bit too high, but after the last cut it dropped to a very sensible level. Of course, you can buy stronger equipment for this money, but issuing 1349 zlotys on XA2 can not be called a bad idea.Xperia XA2 is a premium grade medium, which is a cheaper alternative to flagship smartphones from a Japanese manufacturer. In terms of components, everything is perfectly fine – Snapdragon 630 with Andreno 508 and 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal memory is quite a solid set, typical for a smartphone of this class. Sony has once again put on the camera, equipping Xperia XA2 with a 23-megapixel main camera , which gives the ability to record movies in both 4K resolution and in slow motion (120 fps). Satisfied are also selfie fans who can count on an 8-megapixel camera. I am glad that the Japanese took care of reliable communication facilities (NFC, dual band Wi-Fi, USB type C, hybrid Dual SIM and Bluetooth 5.0), as well as a battery with an above average capacity of 3300 mAh.
Apple iPhone SE
The iPhone SE is a small body and a great spirit. It was expensive at some point, but now you can buy it for about 1,300 zlotys , and in the promotion even 100-150 zlotys cheaper. It is one of the cheapest iPhones on the market.Powerful Apple A9 processor, 2 GB of memory, great workmanship and iOS 10 is the whole Apple emic ing, which was locked in a small metal case with a 4-inch display . iPhone SE is undoubtedly the most optimal choice for all those who still can not come to terms with the dominance of smartphones in the 5+ format. iPhone SE has a 12 MP camera with Live Photos, generating very decent photos on a typical mid-level level. The phone can also record movies in 4K resolution, which is not yet standard in the price class discussed by us. There was also a Touch ID on board.
Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018)
To buy the Galaxy A8 (2018) around 1500 zlotys, you must use the services of sellers who are not official partners of Samsung Poland. Our local branch of a Korean company bravely tries to stick to the price of this phone at a noticeably higher level. It's up to you whether you take a chance – see the list of stores and decide.In the entries dedicated to Galaxy A8, a large group of manieKów wrote that this smartphone is definitely too expensive and should cost up to 1500 zlotys, so that its purchase could be called profitable. I also think that it is worth buying for this money. Samsung Galaxy A8 is tempting above all with a nice Super AMOLED screen with 18.5: 9 proportions, which can be easily compared with the displays of flagship phones. Infinite contrast, great visibility in the bright sun, tarry black and faithfully reproduced colors – miracle, honey, raspberry. The smartphone also tempts with great quality, waterproofness, good working time on one charge and a very decent camera. I can not say that the Galaxy A8 is powerful, but the Exynos 7880 used effectively competes with the Snapdragon series 62x and 63x. >>> Our Test of Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018)
