What is the most impor­tant thing in a smart­phone? Of course, pow­er and capa­bil­i­ties, but this does not mean at all that we are striv­ing to choose a large mas­sive device that will look like an exter­nal bat­tery in our hands. Many of us tend to choose a smart­phone that they will like not only for its char­ac­ter­is­tics, but also for its appear­ance. It turns out that it is very sim­ple: we have select­ed for you 8 smart­phones priced under 20,000 rubles, the style of which will impress any­one.

Mod­ern trends clear­ly show us that a styl­ish and fash­ion­able smart­phone should have a large dis­play, min­i­mal frames around it and, of course, retain all the func­tion­al­i­ty, cam­eras, fin­ger­print scan­ner and speak­ers. Let’s see how man­u­fac­tur­ers cope.

Mov­ing away from the iPhone-like design, Xiao­mi began to devel­op sur­pris­ing­ly spec­tac­u­lar devices that look and feel like real pre­mi­um smart­phones.
