No money for a Flagship? Meet the real Flagship Killers of 2020

3 Mins read

During the last years we have used the term flagship killer on many occasions, perhaps too many. However, companies that a while ago were references in this category, such as OnePlus and Xiaomi, have gradually increased the price of their smartphones. Even though they became popular for having crazy smartphones with affordable prices, both already released new devices with a price tag over €1,000.

Every day it is a little more difficult to talk about price-adjusted terminals with high-end features, but we continue to find very interesting options. Revisiting some of the best flagships that have been on the market for a few months may be a good idea, also leaving aside the “Pro” versions. These are the authentic flagship killers of 2020.

Its 90 Hz AMOLED panel is one of the best we’ve seen, and I prefer its full-screen design to any other smartphone with a notch or hole. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ is more than enough for any task you may ask of it, and most of all, OxygenOS provides a differential experience.
