Best Smartphone 2019 Review
People tend to choose smartphones only from long time recognized brands like Samsung, Sony and iPhone. This is a right decision as these brands have big experience in smartphone industry. However, we would recommend to take a look at others too, like Asus, Google, OnePlus, Huawei, Motorola, Xiaomi and Nokia. Let’s proceed with reviews.
Moto G7 Plus
Motorola took a great advantage in making significant move in flagship field as the busiest people are into high end phones. Thus, Moto G7, a sequel of G6 Plus improved its specs and added some features to deliver the best UX.
Having a 6.2 inch Full HD+ display with a resolution of 1080 x 2270 pixels makes its users enjoy bigger screen experience. At the same time, G7 Plus has dual rear cameras with 16MP+5MP lens and a glass back design that provides glamorous look. Front camera with 12MP lens gives you advanced experience in selfie shots and video calls. Powered by Snapdragon 636 processor with 4GB RAM and 64 storage. Battery has 3000 mAh that lasts for a day if you play games hard.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 7
The Chinese brand strives to catch up with its countrymate Huawei. The results are amazing. For couple of years Xiaomi could come up with flagships and I expect it will never stop. Although, the company is small and has a limited budget. One of the best achievements is Redmi Note 7 that is most fit for people preferring elegance. The design of this flagship made to be different from others. The front is fully covered by screen with notch on top similar to Moto G7 series and iPhone X series. Don’t worry you can get rid off the notch by applying display settings. Rounded metal frame is on their right edge. Overall it looks like Moto G7 Plus. Display is a 6.35 inch FHD. Dual-lens 48MP rear camera with focus on low light shooting and AI-powered scene recognition delivers spectacular experience. Front camera has 13MP lens which is great for video calls and selfies. The latest SD 660 chip-set with 4GB of RAM and storage with 64GB will not disappoint an amateur user. Android 9 Pie is running in this elegant smartphone.
Asus ZenFone Max Pro
This budget flagship has a curvy plastic back. As normal it is water and dust resistant. Display is 6 inches powered by IPS and LCD. So, bezel became minimal as possible. Stunning dual-lens 12MP and 5 MP rear camera will make your days and nights full of high def memories. Selfie lovers have great news, dual-lens 8MP front-facing camera is attached. Most powerful 5000 mAh battery will not let you worry about charging. Most common Snapdragon 836 chipset is installed with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Such great specs can make your experience okay in gaming, calling, video calling, messaging and watching videos or movies. Zenfone Max Pro’s design is not only sparkling but performance is notorious.
Huawei P30 Lite
The Chinese giant Huawei is persistent in making top ranking flagship to beat competitors around the world. Although, P30 Pro costs around $1000 like iPhone XS, it managed to remove the notch problem of display. This achievement made a lot of P30 Lite sales. One thing people do not like Huawei is replicating iPhone and Samsung. But this model has everything to satisfy expectations of any mid-range fans. If we go in details: the average SoC Kirin 710, 4GB RAM, 128GB storage, battery of 4000 mAh, front camera 24MP lens and dual rear camera with 40MP and 20MP lenses, Android Oreo operating system and OLED HD 6.15 inch display. It has everything to beat the iPhone X and Galaxy S9+. Soon people will realize Huawei P30 Lite satisfy their needs.
Oppo RX17 Pro
Curvy body shape of Oppo RX17 Pro reminds me Note 9 but without home button. So little bezels on top and bottom of display. Triple camera at the back with one flash makes it look like Moto G7 Plus but it is bigger than that. 2 volume buttons on the upper left side and power button on opposite side. Stylus pen is absent. So sad. Thin body fits headphone jack and 2 speakers with clear sound making feature. Never tend to drop it facing display down. Screen protector may save it with little chance. Chipset from Snapdragon 710 along with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage will make gamers very happy. Though watching a movie will make anyone feel as if they are watching TV.
Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium
If you miss Sony choose this flagship. Android Oreo is much simple for getting quick attention of simplicity lovers. This is not only strength of this phone. You might get it for over $650 online. I think Sony should go with more advanced tech for attracting more people to buy their phones for less bezels. It is so unfair seeing Sony phones expensive while it can’t catch up with modern needs of smartphone lovers. I call this flagship as the best thick bezel smartphone of 2019, just for bezel lovers.
Hillarious dual rear facing camera surprised us with 16MP and 20MP AI features inside. Display is 6.41 inches Amoled Corning Gorilla glass 2880×1440 QHD+ 18:9 display with cutout. Wireless charging comes with dash charging. The leatest SD 845 chipset with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage. Android Oreo is supported being customized for OnePlus. Three colors are offered: blue, white and black options. Price is lower than other flagships’, extends from $560 till $620 depending on storage and RAM. Even minimal 6GB RAM and 64GB are enough to qualify for the most durable smartphone of 2019.
Nokia 9 PureView – Best Smartphone 2019
Nokia is the legend that thrives to play games in flagship market. After Sirocco 8 launch Nokia put so much effort to make Nokia 9 PureView stand out from the predecessor. The five cameras with 12MP each from Zeiss optics technology make the flagship completely different from other high-end phones. Water and dust resistant body is the biggest achievement too. For the sake of competition 5.99 inch QHD display is made from 2k OLED . Bezels are as tiny as possible while single front camera 20MP lenses will amaze your selfie and video chats. Fingerprint scanner is on the center of the display. A powerful 3320 mAh battery lets you enjoy for 2 days if cellular data switched on. Android Pie runs this powerful phone with Snapdragon 845 Soc, 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. I consider this flagship as the best smartphone of 2019.
Google Pixel 3 XL
New Pixel’s sequel got major changes. Rear camera became not dual with 12MP lens. Front dual camera has little changes in increase of pixels to 8MP. Bezels became slim by enlarging the screen. Wired charging is provided by USB2.0. Display is POLED Full HD with the highest resolution. Search Engine tries to make its devices run its own apps smoothly and that’s why they employed Snapdragon 845 chipset with RAM of 4GB and storage 128GB. Google focuses mostly on internal part of its flagships to provide smooth operations in running Play Market’s apps. I think it is right move for the apps owner. Era of android will surely end but not soon. Enjoy this flagship if you already bought it.
Samsung Galaxy S10
The legendary S9 sequel came after people impatiently waited for long. I saw small changes in design but significant modification inside of S10. Overall, it is better than S9 and S9+ in performance but smaller in size. Large curved AMOLED display. One big change is in cameras: Dual selfie camera and rear triple camera with precise focus technology. Additionally, wireless charging comes with dash charger support. Chipset SD 855 is still employed in. Maximum of 8GB RAM and 512GB storage increase as in typical flagships was put into work. I noticed less bezel in S10 which brings rejoice to experience with full display. Gaming experience was so amazing: there were no lagging, no display sensor problem, no unclear details and no notch problem. Newest Android Pie is being exploited to run this powerful flagship.
How to choose the smartphone?
You need to look at what features you really want from a smartphone. Most people consider camera, display, battery, performance, software and 4G connection.
Do not pay attention at mega pixels of camera as they do not matter in quality of images and video. You should look at autofocus and freezing the image during shaking the phone (in a car may be). Selfie lovers may want dual front camera with face recognizing function. But only over $500 expensive phones have this feature. For those who want snapping pictures of crowd I would recommend to choose Samsung Galaxy S and Google Pixel latest models. Overall, mid-range and high end phones deliver the best camera experience. Their price range is from $280 till $1000.
Smartphone with a big and OLED type display is so stunning for watching movies and playing strategic games. However, some people prefer less size smartphone when big display does not play a significant role for their experience. 5.5 inch sized smartphones (price under $300) are best suit for such kind a user.
If you are often on the go and charging your phone consumes your precious time thus over 3500 mAh battery is strongly recommended by smartphone fans. It is not hard to find such kind of smartphone while its price starts from $150. Soon, Apple introduces wireless charging for their iPhones whereas you do not need to plug your phone onto charger except being inside the room where the wireless charger is plugged onto power. Such a great news. Chinese and Koren flagships will copy this idea and wired charger will be thrown away.
If you want no lagging in browsing internet and using heavy apps or games, you may consider mid-range or high end smartphone which costs from $350 to $1000. You should also consider higher RAM that is more than 4GB for faster results from commands you make. Additionally, bigger storage allows you to store many stuff and you do not need external SSD drive to store your pics and videos of important moments of your life. I strongly suggest you buy a smartphone with at least 64GB storage which will store thousands of files and even have a backup folder in case you delete any file.
Two major Operating Systems (Android and iOS) are used to run the smartphones around the globe. If you are in love with simplicity you have to go with iOS that run iPhones. But not many apps can be found in app store and even you cant play free MP3 music. You must buy music and movies. What a bad OS? Most of the apps run via internet connection too. Oh crap! Oppositely, Android has millions of apps and games. Most of the smartphones use this OS by getting certificates from Google. Downloaded movies and music from free download sites can be played. Thanks Android! I love you Google for being such generous. Only one issue exists in Android. That is less simple than iOS. But people learn. They learn fast!
This type of connection is most common in any smartphone. Starting from all 2017 models of any brand 4G connection is featured. But 4G connection can caught in certain parts of developing and developed countries. Rural areas do not even have 3G connection. Only urban parts have benefited this fastest type of connection. Upcoming 5G connection is set to spread within next 5 years. We will see how fast 5G will perform for most internet demanded urban areas of the world.
Is it necessary to buy a high end smartphone?
If you browse internet, chat in IM apps, play simple games like chess, call and check your emails, mid-range phone is right choice. It may cost you around $300. But if you are a heavy apps user, watch movies, browse internet, snap quality pics and videos thus high end phone is a necessary tool costing over $500. Do not buy low budget smartphone with price from $80 to $180 you will end up with lagging in running apps and browsing internet.
Anyone become sad when phone gets obsolete and replacing is a must, because it beats their pockets severely. To avoid this situation you can take care of you smartphone’s health. There are some ways to protect the phone. Let’s talk about external protection.
1. Get a case
There is a little chance to fix broken back and shattered diplay. It is a nightmare of smartphone keepers. Getting a case is only way to provide maximum protection.
For any model there are plenty of case types. Feeling for dropping your phone most often can actually get you rid of hurting experience of phone dropping. Case makes the phone heavier and bigger, but it’s worth it. However, a thin case can give similar results.
2. Screen protector is essential
Get a protector that is easy to apply and is right for your phone. It’s harder to scratch your screen, which can affect its responsiveness. Some screens are made of a tough material and may not need them. However, a protector may keep your screen together if you drop the phone.
3. Put it away carefully
Avoid putting your phone in same pocket or bag with you keys unless you covered it by case and screen protector. Anyway, keys may damage your protector and case which causes a bad look.
Do not throw you phone onto hard places like table, desk or bouncing sofa. Although you have the case and protector. The small wires of chipset may be damaged
4. Keep it Clean
Dust particles may not be seen, but your smartphone its screen protector and case might become penetrated by them. Speakers and microphone will get negative effect. Then camera will have it too. Screen must be cleaned often by its special cloth. Get rid of dust by openning the case with cleaning by wet leather cloth.
The four tips above help you provide external smartphone maintenance and protection, but safeguarding your phone is also about keeping it running smoothly. Here are some tips for doing that.
5. Streamline and Update Your Apps
Most smartphones include a bunch of apps that the manufacturer has installed. Chances are, you don’t need all of them. Since the more apps you run, the shorter your battery life, disable or uninstall any apps you don’t need.
For the apps you DO use, make sure you’re always running the latest version. App developers update apps regularly, to add new functionality, cut down on resource usage and guard against malware and security threats.
Tip: Either set your apps to update automatically, or update them manually at least once a week.
6. Clear the Cache
When you install apps or when they run, they may leave junk files behind in the cache. Those take up memory you could use for things you really want to do. Clear these files out from time to time. Both Android and iOS allow you to do this.
7. Use Trusted Sources
Sometimes you want to download and install a new app, but where should you get it from? With the rise of malware on phones, the best advice is to use the app store for your device or another trusted app store, such as Amazon’s.
8. Expand Your Storage
If your phone allows it, install an external SD card to increase the available storage, then run any apps you can from this storage. You can also use it to store media files. This frees up the phone’s internal memory, resulting in better performance.
9. Battery care
Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for looking after your battery. Depending on the age of your phone and the battery it’s using, this might include:
- charging your phone before it runs down completely
- letting it run down fully once in awhile
- restarting your phone from time to time
- turning off services you don’t need (like mobile data when you can use Wi-Fi and live wallpaper)
- keeping the battery cool (and turning off the phone to let it cool down if it overheats)
There’s plenty of advice online about the best practices for your particular smartphone model. Finally, you also need to ensure you can find your phone if someone steals it. Use the security features built into your device to help with this:
- Lock your phone with a pin, password or pattern.
- Don’t share your password.
- Install a security app to help you find your phone if it goes walkabout.
