The best low-end mobile that you can buy is not Xiaomi: it's iPhone

Often, when we want to buy a second mobile or a phone just to call and WhatsApp, we go to Android. Thus, it is quite common to find people who go to the internet or to the corner store and end up buying those brands that we have rarely heard of : Leago, Umidigi, Leeco. China Power! Does it sound good, right?

They are mobile phones that in many cases obey the aesthetics of the oriental market, that of the phablets , so it is not uncommon to see a huge screen. Plastic finish, an Android layer of its own that simply pulls, a user interface will regulate ... but hey, we want to call and respond to WhatsApp!

Maybe you have listened to our companions of Andro4All and you have opted for a Xiaomi, a classic and a great quality - price choice. Probably, the Xiaomi Redmi A4 is the best you can buy for just over one hundred euros .

Of course, if one day you have a problem and the clock is going badly, forget about claiming. For what, if you barely cost a hundred euros and total, it has already lasted X months (insert here a figure that goes from 2 to 12 months before you stamp it against a wall because of its slowness or virus ). Then there are the stories of Android: the malware, the unknown Google Play Store apps that later turn out not to be what they promised, etc. Live Android!

And then one day you realize the error of your approach. Why have not you bought an iPhone? Shhhh, shut up foolish. I'm not talking about the iPhone X , the iPhone 8 or even the iPhone 7, which are real brown beasts. In the same way that I have not mentioned the Note8, the OnePlus 5T, the Google Pixel 2 or the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. This is not a post to talk about the crème de la crème.

The iPhone 5s is the best option of the low range

No. I speak for example of the iPhone 5s. To which by the way you could install iOS 11, but I would not do it because it would be an exasperating and unfair experience. And, if the Chinese mobile does not require you to run Android 8.0 Oreo, why an iPhone? First of all I'll tell you that iOS 10 is a wonder and that it has nothing to envy to the latest Android and of course, it is light years away from the Chinese layer that has your mobile ditto.

By the way, the iPhone 5s does not have the ultra-mega-powerful bionic A11 chip, but you can not expect the Snapdragon 835 in the Chinese mobile that you buy. At best, it will have the Snapdragon 425. And yes, the Chinese mobile surely has more RAM. But I assure you one thing: Apple is not worth looking at figures, but the user experience and fluency and that Apple makes hardware and software means that the iPhone 5s will go better .

Iphone 5s
Dimensions 123.8 × 58.6 × 7.5 mm
Weight 112 g
screen 4-inch IPS
Pixel density 1136 × 640 pixels, 326 dpi
Processor A7 + M7 coprocessor
OS Compatible with iOS 11
Storage 16/32/64 GB
Cameras Rear: 8 MP (f2.2) / Front: 1.2 MP (720p)
Battery 1560 mAh
Others Fingerprint sensor, Wireless 802.11a / b / g / n dual band, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, LTE
With the iPhone 5s you will not have a plastic shell either, but you will enjoy aluminum and fantastic finishes. Also, forget about a fingerprint reader built into the back of the terminal - who came up with that absurd idea? -, but the Touch ID will work perfectly inside the Home button .
Of course, comparisons between the iPhone 5s and the Chinese low-end are odious because simply, the one that had, retained.

Why not the iPhone 5c?

No, aunt, I just want the phone to call and I'm not going to spend the almost 200 euros of the iPhone 5s, which is almost double! Ok, then calm because Apple also has its range of plastic . Its name is iPhone 5c and although it is no longer compatible with iOS 11, what else does it give you if you were not going to install it?
Like the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 5c came out in 2013 and although it did not cause much fuss , they share design and the guarantee of being Apple. Of course, its processor is something older and has no fingerprint reader.
Iphone 5c
Dimensions 124.4 x 59.2 x 9.0 mm
Weight 132 g
screen 4 Inches IPS
Pixel density 1,136 x 640, 326 ppi
Processor Apple A6 (dual-core at 1.3 GHz)
OS Up to iOS 10
Storage 16/32 GB
Cameras Rear: 8 MP (f2.2) / Front: 1.2 MP (720p)
Battery 1,440 mAh
Others Wireless 802.11a / b / g / n dual band, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, LTE


And is that why we tend to think that an unknown and cheap Android is better than an iPhone with some years in the market? I said, before spending a hundred euros on a mobile with an Android layer of dubious quality and that they do not even know at home, bets on an old Apple model. Remember that with Apple there is no problem and that you have support and guarantee.
