Best smartphones with a large screen

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X 3 / 16GB

Having a very big desire, it is easy to find an average or even older version of this smartphone, keeping within the budget. And without the help of all known “people’s” trading platforms. But we do not recommend targeting the Quartet without X or the new lineup of Redmi Note 5A. The first is built on a fairly problematic and gluttonous chip Helio X20, and the second and does represent a simplified product with a hardware platform class lower and a battery more modest.


As for our nominee – he is as laconic as possible, looks solid, “solid” and “tenacious” in terms of autonomy. Claims for Redmi Note 4X are typical for the vast majority of inexpensive Xiaomi smartphones: there is no NFC module and all LTE-bands used by domestic telecom operators are not supported. Well, combining in one tray connectors for a memory card and a second SIM card never happy.


  • High performance.
  • Long battery life.
  • A democratic price.


  • Contactless payment systems are not supported.
  • Not able to connect to the Internet on the B20 band.
  • Hybrid tray for the second SIM and microSD.

Meizu M3 Note 16Gb

Another one with a Full HD screen and good gaming performance for the very modest money. The parity of the capabilities compared to the above-presented smartphone of the main competitor is no longer there, although M3 Note has its advantages. Still, the multifunction key with the built-in mTouch fingerprint scanner is unrivaled. In the early versions of the device, it had an inexplicable skew in the horizontal plane.


According to some information, this incident has already been eliminated. Just like in the category of 5-inch models, the photo module and the corresponding software of the M3 Note smartphone are aimed at photographers and allow more freedom when selecting the shooting mode, but there are significant claims to the quality of the images themselves. With the support of 4G networks from competitors, the situation is equally ambiguous, but on the wireless interfaces (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth), the smartphone from Meizu has a noticeable lag. Finally, unlike the previous confrontation, now the autonomy is higher for the M3 Note model.


  • Very convenient multifunction key mTouch.
  • Long battery life.


  • Does not support B1 and B20 bands in LTE networks.
  • Wi-Fi dual-band, but without the support of 802.11ac.
  • Mediocre enough sound.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro 16Gb

Stunning in its availability, it has a good stock of gaming performance and a very decent autonomy, as well as a large device with a large screen from Xiaomi. The smartphone is equipped with a bright display, the information on which is easily readable even under direct sunlight. A fast and sensitive fingerprint scanner works clearly, although wet hands are still capable of misleading it.


In fact, the only relative drawback of the model can be considered modest (by today’s standards) volumes of operational and built-in memory. The latter will be compensated for by installing a microSD card, but with a loss of space for the second SIM card. Alas, with a worthy better application of adherence to principles, developers continue to use the combined slots. Of the pleasant bonuses, the Redmi Note 3 Pro has an infrared port and compatibility with the mass of popular household devices that this smartphone can manage.


  • Excellent performance.
  • Fast fingerprint scanner.
  • Voice control.
  • A decent photo module.
  • Support for modern versions of wireless interfaces.
  • Infrared port for control of household appliances.
  • A large rechargeable battery.


  • Combined slot.
  • Not all frequencies used in 4G networks support.


“Heavyweight” of our review, both indirect and figurative sense. With a screen diagonal of 6.5 inches, this smartphone weighs a quarter of a kilo. Nevertheless, the demand for such specific devices is, especially for such a price. Agree, the big screen is clearly more comfortable for watching movies, reading books or surfing the Internet. And with office documents, it is more convenient to work, on occasion. And the recommended smartphone is not only big, but also very high-quality.


The internal “filling” of all the above tasks is solved without straining. If you want, you can play with pleasure. Maybe not always on ultra-graphics settings, but not at the very minimum. Especially note that the device is capable of a fairly distinct sound, even through the built-in speaker. In short, a perfectly balanced tablet without critical failures. Unless the indicator of events is not enough and the wireless interfaces here are far from the most “fresh” ones.


  • Attractive price tag.
  • A huge and high-quality screen.
  • A decent speaker.


  • There is no event indicator.
  • Large and heavy.
  • Single-band Wi-Fi.
  • A common slot for the memory card and a second SIM card.
