More and more users look towards smartphones on a pure android, which have some advantages over models with manufacturers' branded shells. You can completely install only those applications that are really needed and enjoy the original Android interface, as you are seen in Google and call it - Material Design.

But the key feature of the smartphones of the Android One family is the ability to update to topical versions of the OS. Read more about all the advantages of this system here. View a list of devices that support the Android One program can be on the official website. It is also worth mentioning that such smartphones include any Google Pixel models (not only those included in the selection).

At the moment, actual smartphones falling under the conditions for the support of Android One are extremely small. For this reason, the rating will meet modifications with minimal modifications (shells based on "Android Golov" with minor changes).

Opens the rating of a smartphone from the company Lenovo. The K12 Pro model is also devoid of all sorts of changes in the system and actually runs on bare Android without explicit add-ons. In addition, this is the most profitable smartphone, because on AliExpress it can be purchased for a little more than 10 thousand rubles. Given such a filling, these are really pennies: more effective “investments” still need to be looked for.

The only thing that can upset is the lack of a wide-angle lens. The rear camera is represented by 3 modules: the main one at 64 MP, a macro sensor and a depth sensor. Of the functions, we can note the presence of EIS, LAF, the HDR mode, etc. The cameras are not bad, but there is clearly trouble with photo processing: the front camera often does not clearly define the boundaries for Bokeh. However, what we have is already ideal, if we recall the cost of K12 Pro.

The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 662 octa-core SoC. Surprisingly, even with performance, the device has no particular problems for this reason. Even heavy games will run comfortably, albeit at low graphics settings, not to mention the rest. A 6000 mAh battery allows the system to work without recharging for at least 1.5-2 days.
