Another Xiaomi smartphone makes it into the top four this December priced at 899 yuan ($129). Of the three Xiaomi smartphones, the Redmi Note 4 released mid-2016 is the one with the highest performance, though.
The rest of the list is made up of the LeEco Le 2 999 yuan ($144), Le Pro 3 with a price tag of 1799 yuan ($259) and then another LeEco smartphone makes the cut – the Le Max 2 with a 1599 yuan ($230) price tag. The Le Pro 3 is the latest and most powerful in terms of performance among the three LeEco smartphones on the list. The 360 N4 with a price tag of 999 yuan ($144) as well as the Meizu Metal – 699 yuan ($100) and Xiaomi Mi 5S – 1899 yuan ($273) completes the list.
