We had already mentioned the Xiaomi 14, which received our favor during its test. The Xiaomi 14 Ultra is just as good in its desire to offer a premium experience. The 6.73-inch screen offers great performance in terms of colorimetry and brightness, all with adaptive refreshing ranging from 1 to 120 Hz. We advise you to switch to the Saturated setting and warm temperature to get the most out of it. the best. Its configuration based around the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip and 16 GB of RAM offer the best performance of the moment. A final point on which the 14 Ultra stands out is its photo component. The Xiaomi phone offers one of the most accomplished experiences, in particular thanks to a real contribution from the partnership with Leica. The large battery provides up to two days of use with the addition of fast charging.

For 1499 euros, Xiaomi delivers a luxurious smartphone capable of standing up to the iPhone 15 Pro Max and the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra. We regret that the manufacturer only offers 4 versions of Android in the face of competition that is now up to 7 years old.

  • Its superb Oled screen

  • The OneUI overlay

  • Good autonomy

If Samsung is one of the most popular brands in the very high end, it suffers from fierce competition around quality/price ratio. It is in this sense that the manufacturer has regained control of its Galaxy A range. With the Samsung Galaxy A35, smartphones priced under 400 euros are in the sights. In terms of the technical sheet, the device offers a very coherent general package. This is reflected in particular by the addition of the OneUI 6.1 overlay. This offers plenty of personalization and AI functions, even if a slight surplus of advertising apps should be noted. You are entitled to a beautiful screen as well as solid performance in daily use. The photography experience offered is good, despite a lagging ultra-wide-angle sensor. Finally, regarding autonomy, our test was able to observe an endurance of a day and a half. Unfortunately, with 25W charging, the phone lags a little, as is often the case with Samsung.

Its starting price of 399 euros makes the Samsung Galaxy A35 one of the devices offering the best quality/price ratio on the market.

In the entry-level sector, Samsung is a step behind Xiaomi. The Samsung Galaxy A15 in its 4G version is one of the devices designed to make up for this gap, drawing on the manufacturer’s know-how. This starts with a beautiful 6.5-inch Oled panel with 90 Hz refreshment. As with its predecessor, the OneUI 6.1 software overlay is one of the phone’s big strengths thanks to its customization. Here too, you are entitled to four years of Android updates. On a daily basis, performance is acceptable, but don’t expect to perform well in gaming. The Galaxy A15 is also capable of withstanding a day and a half of use despite once again a frustratingly slow 25W charger. The photography experience is also good without being exceptional. Especially for a smartphone for less than 200 euros, the Samsung Galaxy A15 4G poses a real alternative to Xiaomi and its Redmi.
