Best Phones For Students (By Categories) – Redmi Note 10 Pro Max Beats Them All

What features a smartphone should have to attract students? The first things coming to our minds are the camera, battery, performance (also gaming) and the price. So let’s see which handsets launched in March are considered to be the best phones for students

The Most Powerful Phones For Students

In March 2021, we didn’t see many premium smartphones. We mean there were released a few models with a top configuration, but they are not on the shelves yet. Moreover, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra will be uncovered tomorrow. And we guess it will go on sale only in April or even later. But we have a couple of models that match the requirements of this section – the Oppo Find X3 series and the Realme GT 5G.

OPPO Find X3 vs Realme GT

The Oppo Find X3 series includes four models. But only the standard version and the Pro variant have chances to win the title of the most powerful smartphone for students. Honestly, we have been waiting for a tougher competition from the Realme GT 5G, but the only ‘feature’ it can boast of is the ultra-low price. Maybe for many customers, it will be a decisive factor when making purchases, but if taking into account the overall performance, the OPPO Find X3 Pro has no equals in this comparison.

Conclusion: the title of the most powerful phone for students goes to the OPPO Find X3 Pro.

The Best Gaming Phones For Students

In March, many major phone makers released gaming smartphones that we have been eagerly waiting for. Among them, we should mention the Black Shark 4 series models and Red Magic 6 series handsets. Both lines are very popular and successfully compete with the ASUS ROG Gaming Phone line. We could also mention the RAZER gaming phones, but the latter is not much popular outside the US.

Well, let’s take a look at the Black Shark 4 vs Red Magic 6 comparison table below and choose which model should win the prize.

Black Shark 4 vs Red Magic 6

From the comparison table, the standard version of the Black Shark 4 should be taken out immediately, because unlike the rest three, it comes with a pseudo-flagship chip – the Snapdragon 870. Both series’ Pro models have the largest 16GB RAM. But the Black Shark 4 Pro offers the highest 512GB storage. Plus, the disk array system is composed of an enhanced version of UFS3.1 + customized SSD. We knew that the Red Magic 6 series models have the best cooling system. So in this sense, the Black Shark 4 line handsets can’t compete with it. Though the standard version of the Red Magic 6 gaming phone sports a larger 5050mAh battery, the whole system supports only 66W fast charging. In this regard, the Black Shark 4 line handsets come with a 4500mAh battery and support 120W fast charging solution. Honestly, the cameras of both lines are almost identical. And as we are dealing with gaming phones, due to the 5MP sub-camera and the 20MP front camera, our sympathy is with the Black Shark 4 devices. The Black Shark 4 boasts of myriads gaming features, and they refer not only to the software optimization but various hardware additions as well. Anyways, the standard version of the Red Magic 6 costs a bit less.

Conclusion: the title of the best gaming phone for students goes to the Black Shark 4 Pro.

The Best Camera Phones For Students

If taking into account only the camera part, there are not that many phones launched in March that can win the title of the best camera phone for students.

The Meizu 18 Pro features a Samsung GN1 50MP main lens. It is accompanied by a 32MP ultra-wide-angle lens and an 8MP telephoto lens supports 3x optical zoom, 30x digital zoom, and OIS+EIS hybrid image stabilization. It also has a 3D depth sensor. On the front, we can find a Samsung GH1 44MP 1.4μm four-in-one sensor. The Meizu 18 also uses a new generation Ultra SMA OIS technology, supports Pure Fusion, DarkVision extreme night scene, super night video, AI super clear portrait, and other camera modes.

The sports a quad-camera setup including a 108MP Samsung HM2 primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP B&W lens. This camera supports Starry Mode, Tilt-shift, Dynamic Bokeh, Neon Portrait, AI Color Portrait, Ultra 108MP Mode, Super Nightscape, etc. On the opposite side, there is a 16MP selfie shooter.

Realme 8 Pro

At last, there is another model we’d like to introduce you – it’s the VIVO S9. It has a 44-megapixel AF ultra-night soft dual-camera. It is paired with an ultra-wide-angle lens of 8MP resolution. This camera debuted the ultra-night micro-slit fill light. The manufacturer has added two LED soft lights to the gap at the top of the screen to provide users with uniform and three-dimensional light on the face in the polar night environment.


As you see, it’s a quite difficult choice. However, we think the Meizu 18 Pro stands out.

Conclusion: the title of the best camera phone for students goes to the Meizu 18 Pro.

The Best Battery Phones For Students

When looking for the smartphones with the largest batter capacity launched in March, we found at least four models – Realme C25, Moto G10 Power, VIVO iQOO U3x and Poco X3 Pro. However, only the former two models come with 6000mAh batteries. The latter two have batteries with a capacity of around 5000mAh. So let’s focus on the first two.

As said, the biggest selling point of the Moto G10 Power, and as its name suggests, is the 6000mAh battery. Interestingly, the phone also supports 20W TurboPower charging. This handset costs $135.

The next nominee is the Realme C25. The Realme C25 has a large 6000mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging. It costs $145.

It seems these two have almost identical battery features. But when looking at the rest of the specs, we can see that the Moto G10 Power comes with a Snapdragon 460 chip (instead of the Helio G70), a quad-camera (instead of a triple-camera), and as said, costs less.

Conclusion: the title of the best battery phone for students goes to the Moto G10 Power.

The Best Phones For Students

Interestingly, there are only four smartphones fighting for this title. And two of them come our way from Samsung and the other two from Xiaomi. We are talking about the Samsung Galaxy A72 and the Samsung Galaxy A52 from the South Korean manufacturer and the Xiaomi Mi 10S and the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max from the Chinese manufacturer.

Samsung Galaxy A Series vs Xiaomi And Redmi

Looking at the comparison table above, we can clearly see that the Samsung A series models have no chances against the Xiaomi handsets. Also, if the Mi 10S comes with a Snapdragon 7 series chip, it would lose the race as well. But the ultra-low price of the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max makes it the most attractive smartphone in this topic.

Conclusion: the title of the best phone for students goes to the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max.
