Which Android smartphone to replace the iPhone Pro-series


In the light of well-known events, iPhone owners were driven into a corner: applications disappear from the App Store without the possibility of recovery, Apple Pay does not work and there is nothing to replace it, Apple is gradually closing all ways to pay for subscriptions to their favorite services. In such a situation, the question arises more and more often, how to replace iphone? And if it’s easier for owners of regular versions of the iPhone – almost any representative of the middle price segment on Android will do, then users of the pro-series of apple smartphones are used to the ultimate flagships, in which there are no compromises. In such a situation, you should look at the most expensive and most stuffed Android smartphones, but does expensive always mean good? Let’s figure it out.

Galaxy S22 Ultra or iPhone 13 Pro

The first thing that comes to mind when asked what to replace the iPhone with is the flagships from Samsung. Many believe that Samsung makes the only premium flagship Android smartphones and those wishing to switch from the iPhone, the path lies only in the camp of direct competitors.

Galaxy S22 Ultra in the 2022 lineup is the ultimate flagship that has absorbed the best that was developed by Samsung:

  • 6.8” Dynamic Amoled screen with 1-120Hz dynamic refresh rate;
  • Processor Exynos 2200 (4 nm) or Snapdragon 8 Gen 1;
  • 4-camera system – 108 MP wide-angle (f1.8), 12 MP ultra-wide-angle (f2.2), 10 MP telephoto (f2.4), 10 MP telephoto (f4.9), laser autofocus;
  • 40 MP wide-angle front camera (f2.2);
  • 5000 mAh battery;
  • IP68 water resistant;
  • Ultrasonic fingerprint scanner in the screen;
  • Fast charging, wireless charging, reverse wireless charging;
  • A Galaxy Note stylus in a case and the list goes on and on.

Samsung has built into its flagship every feature possible at the moment. The only nitpick is the lack of a microSD slot, but is that a problem for those migrating from an iPhone? The real drawback of the Galaxy S22 Ultra can only be called a processor, which does not allow you to play games for a long time. After a certain time, it heats up, throttling starts, the frequency is reset, the screen brightness drops to a minimum and it becomes simply impossible to play.

The cost is 162,990 rubles in the Samsung branded store for the 256 GB version.

OnePlus 10 Pro – is it worth buying

If Samsung is about full stuffing, then flagships from Chinese manufacturers most often it is about a combination of characteristics. After OnePlus teamed up with Oppo, many shouted that this would not lead to anything good. And so it happened One Plus 10 Pro differs from its predecessor OnePlus 9 Pro only in the new Snapdragon 8 gen 1 processor and the lack of moisture protection. Yes, the manufacturer has degraded one of the characteristics of its smartphone from generation to generation.

  • 6.7” LTPO2 AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate;
  • Snapdragon 8 Gen1 (4nm);
  • 3-camera system – 48 MP wide-angle (f/1.8), 50 MP ultra-wide-angle (f/2.2), 8 MP telephoto (f/2.4), 32 MP front-facing camera (f/2.2);
  • 5000 mAh battery;
  • Optical fingerprint scanner in the screen;
  • Fast charging, wireless charging, reverse wireless charging.

Cost – not officially sold in Russia, from 63,990 rubles for the 8/128 GB version on Yandex.Market.

Xiaomi 12 Pro after iPhone

Xiaomi has always been famous for its smartphones in terms of price-quality ratio. This is not Samsung, which put everything that could be put in its flagships. Xiaomi has relied on such characteristics to price the final apparatus did not fly into the sky. But in 2022, something went wrong. Xiaomi decided that they could also compete with competitors in the high price segment, endowed their flagship with powerful stuffing and set an appropriate price for it.

At the same time, the price soared only for the Russian market. In China, the manufacturer is trying to keep the price down, so it would be logical to look for this smartphone as part of parallel imports, and not in official deliveries. Buy Xiaomi at the recommended price, the hand has not yet been raised.

  • 6.73” AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate;
  • Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (4nm);
  • 3-camera system – 50 MP wide-angle (f/1.9), 50 MP ultra-wide-angle (f/1.9), 50 MP telephoto (f/2.2), 32 MP wide-angle front camera (f/2.5);
  • 4600 mAh battery;
  • Optical fingerprint scanner in the screen;
  • Fast charge 120W 100% in 18 minutes, wireless charging, reverse wireless charging;
  • Cost – the official price is 134,990 rubles for the 12/256 GB version.

As you can see Chinese smartphones They are very close in terms of performance, but far in price. At the same time, buying Xiaomi in official retail for such a price does not seem like a reasonable solution, but even on Yandex.Market, the cost is from 99,890 rubles. In such a situation, of course, OnePlus 10 Pro becomes the best buy. If we talk about a really real flagship in the world of Android, then Galaxy S22 Ultra is a truly powerful purchase. In any case, the best replacement for old iphone – New iPhone!

Galaxy Z Fold 3 comparison with iPhone

As a device outside of today’s topic, I would like to note Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 – the device of 2021. I don’t see the point in describing the characteristics of last year’s smartphone, but it’s worth talking about it. The Galaxy Z Fold series is a smartphone with a folding screen. The user of such a device receives a tablet and a smartphone in one person. True, you will have to sacrifice thickness, but for many this does not play a fundamental role.

If you really want a different gadget experience, then the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is your choice. There is no such stunning filling and cameras as in the Galaxy S22 Ultra, but they will not disappoint you. Enough power to not think about replacing for several years. In general, this smartphone not for everyone, but will surprise a lot of people.

Cost – 199990 rubles in the official Samsung store for the 256 GB version
