The best Philips smartphones

Dutch brand Philips is known to all. Let's get acquainted with the best smartphones that are distributed under this brand.

A Dutch consumer electronics manufacturer has entered the mobile phone market a long time ago. In those days, small push-button devices were popular, and before the release of the first touchscreen smartphones, there were a few years. The company decided to stand out among competitors, endowing their creations with a capacious battery. And for a long time, Philips mobiles have been very successful. However, with the advent of the Android era, the manufacturer began to feel noticeably worse.

Once the rights to use the brand were sold to the Chinese. Therefore, the Dutch are absolutely not involved in the production of modern smartphones Philips, and these devices have lost their identity. Now for the most part they are faceless and not too powerful. However, exceptions to the rule happen. Read about the best Philips smartphones in this collection.

The best in everything

Philips Xenium X818

  • Battery: 3900 mAh
  • RAM: 3 GB
  • Built-in storage: 32 GB

Price: from 8 490 rub.

As of the winter of 2019, this is the most advanced smartphone released under the Dutch brand. At the disposal of the device there is a good display, even if its resolution does not break records. On the back is a 16 megapixel camera lens. You can even find fault with it - the creators did not provide the module with an optical stabilizer. But nothing bad can be said about the front camera - its 8-megapixel resolution is enough for its matrix. How difficult it is to make a claim to the processor. The manufacturer introduced here one of the best chipset from MediaTek. But not a top-end solution that would adversely affect the cost of a smartphone. The main thing is that the processor easily launches modern games, while almost all of them come with maximum graphics settings.

Mobile technology Philips, most people associate with a capacious battery. In this regard, Xenium X818 does not fail - inside it is a battery with a capacity of 3900 mAh. Even with an energy-intensive display, this lasts for a half to two days of battery life, unless you spend a lot of time in games. Another important advantage of the device is the amount of memory. For comfortable work it is enough. Moreover, some buyers will do without a microSD card for a long time. It should be noted and the presence of a fingerprint sensor , which provides the best confidentiality of the contents of the device.

The Philips S327 is inconspicuous in appearance and would be completely unremarkable in a number of budget smartphones if it were not for a curious feature. S327 can be considered the most affordable mobile device with an infrared port. Infrared ports are now experiencing a rebirth, and they are no longer used for data transfer, but for controlling home appliances. With the S327, you can control 200,000 household appliance models from 4,000 manufacturers. This is not only a smartphone, but also a universal remote for TVs, split systems and DVD players.

  • Battery: 2500 mAh

Relatively inexpensive smartphone, having almost everything you need. Inside it there are two slots for SIM-cards, which will work alternately. The functionality of the device is provided by the Android 7.0 operating system, it will not become obsolete for a very long time. Another undoubted advantage of this model is support for LTE-A, which allows you to comfortably watch videos while being on the street.

Inside the device is the optimal amount of memory - 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB constant. The microSD card will no doubt be needed by the buyer, but he is unlikely to complain about the lack of RAM. Only the processor has some problems. It uses a typical budget solution. Modern games they run, but the graphics settings at the same time have to be reduced. Even more sad feelings cause the camera - it has an 8-megapixel matrix and a simple aperture.

In short, the Philips S318 is inferior to many Chinese budget smartphones. But you can buy it in the nearest store, which will allow you not to spend several weeks or even a whole month waiting for delivery.

This smartphone is most similar to Sony products. Here, too, there are sharp corners and typical touch keys below the screen. But the logo of the Dutch manufacturer will not let you be fooled. Like Japanese devices, Philips Xenium V787 can boast a very good camera. Under its lens is a 13-megapixel matrix. Unfortunately, the optical stabilization is absent, which is somewhat distressing. And the camera was not very bright, since the diaphragm opens only up to f / 2.2.

Despite the 5-inch diagonal, the installed display has a resolution of Full HD. As a result, the pixel density reaches 441 PPI - hardly any of the buyers will complain about this parameter. Another undoubted advantage of the device is a good set of wireless modules. LTE will transmit data at high speed, and the navigation module with GLONASS support provides high positioning accuracy. Also, the owners of the device note the fact of the presence of a capacious battery and a very powerful processor. In short, the high cost of this device justifies itself. It is strange not to see a fingerprint scanner in such a smartphone.

  • Used capacious battery.
  • The optimal amount of memory.
  • Relatively good camera.
  • Excellent IPS-screen.
  • You can use two SIM-cards.

The screen has a resolution of HD +, the diagonal is just over 5.7 inches, the minimum frame and oleophobic coating. Displays with similar characteristics in 2019 already surprise no one, but for the device of the budget segment this is a very good level. Experts praise the S395 screen for high brightness, clarity, lack of grain, as well as the ability to fine-tune using MiraVision.

Philips-branded smartphones have standard alphanumeric indices. As such, the division into lines is absent. However, according to the first letter in the model name, some conclusions can be drawn. For example, " X " says that the device will be close to the title of the flagship. Usually such devices get the maximum functionality. The letter " S " says that the manufacturer has tried to give your device a stylish appearance. But most often such models differ from other products only in their lesser thickness and weight. Under the name with the letter " V " hides typical middle peasants who do not claim any records.

Excluded from the selection

Philips S386

  • Operating system: Android 7.0
  • Processor: MediaTek MT6580, 4 cores, 1300 MHz
  • Screen: 5 inches, IPS, 1280 x 720 pixels
  • Battery: 5000 mAh
  • RAM: 2 GB
  • Built-in storage: 16 GB

Price: from 7 190 rub.

Very simple externally smartphone. When you look at it in your head, associations with a large number of Chinese devices unwittingly arise. In a word, the main advantage of the device is not the design, but the technical characteristics. The smartphone includes a battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh. This parameter is enough for a half to two days of battery life. In this case, the device does not have the most powerful processor, so its owners are unlikely to spend heavily on the game charge.

The amount of RAM may seem small. However, for the stable operation of the operating system and all applications, it is enough, and it is meaningless to desire more from such an inexpensive device. But the lack of a fingerprint sensor can really complain, you have to rely on a pin code or a pattern key. But if many competitors with a similar price tag do not have it either, then this is not the case with the 4G module. However, the characteristics of the Philips S386 are such that it does not really need a high data transfer rate. More importantly, there are two SIM slots and a fresh version of the operating system. The fact of the presence of FM-radio also looks important.


  • Stable software.
  • You can insert a pair of SIM cards.
  • Relatively good display.
  • Android 7.0 is installed.
  • Decent battery life.
  • Low cost.
  • Included are additional rear covers.


  • Built the simplest camera.
  • There is no support for LTE.
  • Not the most powerful components.

The structure of this smartphone includes a display created by technology IPS. You can look at it from any angle - you will definitely not notice the distortion of the picture. The screen size is 5.5 inches. This is the best option for controlling the operating system and for watching movies. Videos are allowed to watch not only via Wi-Fi, but also with the help of LTE-networks. Another such screen has a decent margin of brightness. As a result, the picture on it is clearly visible even on the street, on a bright sunny day. And this is important, as the owner of the Philips S616 will often use it for photography.

The device provides a powerful eight-core processor. But we must not forget that he belongs to the budget segment, so in some games it is necessary to reduce graphics settings. The amount of memory can be called adequate - for the stable functioning of Android 5.1 this is enough. The device has several sensors. However, their number does not include a fingerprint scanner. There is no gyro here either. However, this is typical for a smartphone manufactured under the Philips brand.
