Best SmartPhone of the Year!
There were many best smartphones released in 2018 that were really promising considering everything, from design, build quality, internals, performance, battery life, and cameras. It is extremely tough to call or to declare a winner as others are very slightly behind, not more.
Anyhow, we think the overall best smartphone of the year award goes to:
Huawei Mate 20 Pro
