Apple iPhone 11 Pro
The best expensive smartphone you can buy is the Apple iPhone 11 Pro
It is also the most powerful iPhone ever released by Apple, powered by a brand new Bionic A13 processor. Pair this with a larger battery and several smarts for power optimization baked into iOS 13 itself, and you’ve got an iPhone that can last the whole day without having to hook up to a power outlet–and that’s with heavy use. Be frugal with your phone, and you can easily squeeze out two days.
But the tri-camera is the headline act. The third sensor, in particular, is a wide-angle camera, offering a field of view of 120 degrees, which is suitable for landscapes.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
Look no further than the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus if you’re hunting for the absolute best Android phone on the market today.
Not only is this the fastest, most feature-packed and polished Galaxy smartphone ever launched by Samsung, but it also does something really different from the iPhone and other flagship rival handsets. While competitors rushed to clone the screen design that gained prominence with the iPhone X for the first time, Samsung’s Infinity-O des approach was dramatically different.
Huawei P30 PRO
The Huawei P30 Pro has come along with its jaw-droppingly strong quad-camera system and effectively stolen its thunder. Yes, in our review of the P30 Pro, we said, “the remarkable 5x optical and 10x hybrid zoom are unlike anything we used before and enable you to capture pictures that you simply wouldn’t be able to get with any other smartphone. And that doesn’t say anything about the very impressive photography of the phone in the Night Mode, or its bright and vivid pictures with little noise, either.
However, the P30 Pro is not just about photography, with a large 6.47-inch screen, a fast Kirin 980 central processor, and a long-lasting 4,200 mAh battery that helps deliver a complete flagship experience.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10
Note 10 is undeniably one of the best Android phones available today, with its absolutely stunning 6.3-inch Super AMOLED screen, powerful internal hardware package, and innovative S Pen electronic stylus. There’s no place where it doesn’t punch hard and despite lacking a few features of the larger Galaxy Note 10 Plus, it’s the one to punch because of its more reasonable price and sensitivity. The new S pen with a 10-hour batterly like and air gestures remains unique.
Factors that might make you look at Note 10 Plus over this phone are the former 5G version which enables the user to tap into the super-fast new network networks available in most major cities in Britain, the humongous 6.8-inch AMOLED screen, and a slightly better camera system that comes with a time-of-flight sensor.
Xiaomi Mi 9T
This handset builds on the excellent Xiaomi Mi 9 to incorporate even more flexibility and apps – and dissects the front display knot to give you even more screen-like features (the 20MP selfie camera is relocated to a motorized pop-up).
The Xiaomi Mi 9 T Pro, like its predecessor, mixes flagship-level specs with a style that guarantees turning heads wherever you get this device out. Combine that with a very attractive price and it’s Xiaomi’s great all-round bundle–one that’s well worth a spot on our best smartphones 2019 list of best devices.
