Battery dead, not enough memory, cell phone too lame? Anyone who struggles with their old smartphone now has a good opportunity to upgrade. Because MediaMarkt sells numerous recommended smartphone models at good prices. GIGA shows you the offers that are particularly worthwhile.
The Super Deal Weeks at MediaMarkt have started. In addition to other technology products, the focus is on smartphones, some of which MediaMarkt offers at current best prices. Four recommendations from GIGA:
Samsung Galaxy S52s
Samsung’s mid-range has been on the market since late summer 2021 and has sold very well. Rightly so, because for little money you get a device that is impressive: In a fresh design, it has a bright and colorful AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and 120 Hz.
The battery is generously dimensioned with 4,500 mAh and usually allows its owner to get through the day with sufficient buffer. 128 GB of storage is enough for lots of videos and photos, which the device is quite successful with. The A52s is also future-proof thanks to 5G support. Samsung has also promised to provide updates for the A52s for a few more years.
Unlike many higher-priced smartphones, the A52s also has a slot for memory expansion via micro SD and a jack for wired headphones. Incidentally, the direct successor Galaxy A53 lacks both of these.
The Samsung Galaxy A52s is currently available at MediaMarkt in different colors for only 251.26 euros – current best price and a clear buy recommendation.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 11
Good technology, but affordable – that is the unofficial motto of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11. Because the device combines everyday specifications in an attractive design. Above all, the expandable 128 GB is decent storage for little money and the large and fast-charging battery is also convincing. Of course, you have to make a few compromises with a device in this price range – the camera is only good in daylight, the computing power is only mediocre, and you have to do without 5G.
Nevertheless: a lot of mobile phone for little money – this is also confirmed by the Stiftung Warentest, which gives the phone a grade of 2.2 (“good”). At MediaMarkt, the Redmi Note 11 is available in three different colors to the current one Best price of 169 euros.
Xiaomi 11T Pro
The Xiaomi 11T Pro is a smartphone with top specifications and hardly any compromises. The device presented in autumn 2021 has a very good camera, the still really strong Snapdragon 888 chip from Qualcomm, and a great 120 Hz-capable display. It is the record holder when it comes to charging: The manufacturer states that the smartphone can be charged from 0 to 100% in around 18 minutes with the included power supply. Even if it’s more like 25 minutes in real terms, apart from the successor Xiaomi 12 Pro, which lands similarly quickly, there is currently no smartphone that pumps up endurance so quickly even with short pit stops. More about the smartphone in the GIGA Hands-On:
A lot of performance and numerous delicacies: The Xiaomi 11T Pro is currently available at MediaMarkt for Top price of 444 euros. You can hardly get into the smartphone upper class cheaper at the moment.
Google Pixel 6
A smartphone for Google fans: With the Pixel 6, the hardware and software are optimally coordinated. Google not only brings exclusive features to its own smartphone series, a long update supply is also guaranteed. In terms of performance and camera, the Pixel 6 is also at the forefront. Another special feature is the “visor” design with a black bar on the back that houses the camera party. In the video we show you more about the Android “flagship”:
At MediaMarkt, the Pixel 6 is available in both classic black and two fresh color variations at the current best price of only 525 euros.
