11. Huawei P8 - Maybe Huawei positions itself higher at least when it comes to the price tag. The P8 is a $600 Chinese phone that is excellent in terms of design and hardware, as well as one of the best cameras. However, the buggy software and poor performance is what Huawei users were likely to experience the previous year - but is it better now, we are about to see!

12. UMI Iron Pro - At a similar price as the Iron model, the Iron Pro is upgraded with a faster performance and an EyePrint ID eye scanner. The affordable price (around $160 + import duty) for this phone makes it a better choice than the UMI Iron model, but in general both of the phones run great.

14. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 - Big and with a detailed display, the Note 3 is one of the affordable Chinese phones with great design and fantastic performance - and in general result in one of the best value for your money. And if 2GB RAM memory and 16GB doesn't seem great to you, to us it seems amazing when linked to a $150 price tag.
