Best Smartphone 2019

People tend to choose flagships only from recognized brands like Samsung, LG and iPhone. This is a right decision as these brands have long experience in smartphone industry. I would recommend to take a look new comers like OnePlus, Huawei and Nokia. Let’s go on with reviews.

Moto Z3 Play – Best Budget Gaming Smartphone 2019

View On Amazon

Motorola took a great advantage in making significant move in gaming field as most people play in their phones frequently for just killing the time. Thus, Moto Z3 Play, a sequel of Z2 Play improved its specs and added some features to deliver the best gaming experience for mini gamers. 

Having a 6-inch Full HD+ display with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels makes its users enjoy bigger screen experience. At the same time, Z3 Play has dual rear cameras with 12MP+8MP lens and a glass back design that provides wireless charging. Front camera with 5MP lens gives you average experience in selfie shots and video calls. Powered by Snapdragon 636 processor with 6GB RAM and 32/64 storage. Battery has 3000mAh that lasts for a day if you play games so hard. OS is Android Oreo. Front home button disappeared unlike Z2 Play has it.

LG G7 ThinQ – Best Elegant Smartphone 2019

View On Amazon

The Korean brand strives to catch up with its countrymate Samsung. The results are amazing. For couple of years LG could come up with two flagships and I expect it will never stop. Although, the company is small and has a limited budget. One of the best achievements is LG G7 ThinQ that is most fit for people prefering elegance. The design of this flagship made to be different from others. It has five colors: Aurora Black, Platinum Grey, Moroccan Blue, Moroccan Blue (Matt), and Raspberry Rose. The front is fully covered by screen with notch on top similar to Huawei P20 Pro and iPhone X. Don’t worry you can get rid off the notch by applying display settings. Rounded metal frame on their right edge. Overall it looks like G6. Display is a 6.1-inch QHD+ LCD, with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and an impressive 1,000 nits of brightness. Dual-lens 16MP rear camera with focus on low light shooting and AI-powered scene recognition delivers spectaculous experience. Front camera has 8MP lens which is great for video calls and selfies. The latest SD 845 chipset with 4GB of RAM and storage with 64GB/124GB will not disappoint an amateur user. Android P is run in this elegant smartphone.

Google Pixel 3 – Best Smooth Running Smartphone 2019

View On Amazon

New Pixel’s sequel got major changes. Rear camera became dual with 18MP lens. Front camera has little changes in increase of pixels to 8MP.  Bezels became slim by enlarging the screen. Wireless charging is provided by glassy back. Headphone jack comes back. Display is OLED 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 6GB and storage 128GB/256GB. 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 buy it of course.

HTC U12 – Most Sparkling Smartphone 2019

View On Amazon

This shiny flagship has a curvy glass back. As normal it is water and dust resistant. Google (owner) followed iPhone by removing headphone port. Display is 6 inches powered by OLED Full HD specs. So, bezel became minimal as possible. Stunning dual-lens 12MP and 16MP 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 3,500mAh battery will not let you worry about charging. Most common Snapdragon 845 chipset is installed with 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. Such great specs can make your experience okay in gaming, calling, video calling, messaging and watching videos or movies. U12’s design is not only sparkling but performance is undefeatable.

OnePlus 6 – Best Budget Flagship 2019

View On Amazon

Before the release people used to call it “iPhone X Killer”. It has similar look of iPhone X (notch, display, fingerprint and face ID). Hillarious dual rear facing camera surprised us with 16MP and 20MP AI features inside. Display is 6 inches 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 $520 till $690 depending on storage and RAM. Even minimal 6GB RAM and 64GB are enough to qualify for the most durable smartphone of 2019.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 – Best Smartphone of 2019

View On Amazon

The legendary Note 8 sequel comes after people impatiently waited for long. I saw small changes in design but significant modification inside of Note 9. Overall, it is better than S9 and S9+ in performance but bigger in size. Large curved AMOLED display with S Pen stylus remained. One big change is in battery which has 3850 mAh (lasts for a day if you are a hard gamer). Additionally, wireless charging comes with dash charger support. Chipset  Exynos 9820 was developed to replace Snapdragon 845 that is employed in majority of flagships. Samsung changed its tactics by self-aspiring Exynos 9820 is much faster than SD 845. Maximum of 8GB RAM and 256GB storage increase as in typical flagships was put into work. Dual rear camera with 16MP and 20MP lenses with dual flash makes quality stunning pictures. I noticed less bezel in Note 9 which brings rejoice to experience with display. Gaming experience was so amazing: there were no lagging, no display sensor problem, no unclear details and no notch problem.  Newest Android P will be exploited to run this best smartphone of 2019.

Huawei P20 Pro – Best Smartphone With Everything You Want in 2019

View On Amazon

The Chinese giant Huawei is persistent in making top ranking flagship to beat competitors around the world. Although, P20 Pro costs around $1000 like iPhone X, it managed to remove the notch problem of display. This achievement made a lot of P20 Pro sales. One thing people do not like Huawei is replicating iPhone and Samsung. But this model has everything to satisfy expectations of any flagship fans. If we go in details: the latest SoC Kirin 970, 6GB 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 6.1 inch display. It has everything to beat the iPhone X and Galaxy S9+. That’s why U.S banned this brand. For sure people do not even need some of its features because of no idea what they are created for. Soon they will realize Huawei P20 Pro forecasted their needs.

Apple iPhone X – Best Non Android Smartphone 2019

View On Amazon

If you are fed up with Android OS choose this flagship. iOS operating system is much simple for getting quick attention of simplicity lovers. This is only strength of this phone. Compared to specs and features of OnePlus 6, this flagship is left beaten up so miserably. iPhone X’s price is high that costs over $1000 while you can get OnePlus 6 for over $650. I think Apple should go with more advanced tech for attracting more people to buy their phones for reasonable prices. It is so unfair seeing iPhone X expensive while it can’t catch up with modern needs of smartphone lovers. I name iPhone X as the best non-Android smartphone 2019 just for Android haters.

Nokia 9 – Best Stable Smartphone 2019

View On Amazon

Nokia is back to play games in flagship market. After Sirocco 8 launch Nokia put so much effort to make Nokia 9 stand out from the predecessor. Water and dust resistant body is the biggest achievement. For the sake of competition 5.7 inch display is made from OLED QHD. Bezels are as tiny as possible while dual front camera 5MP and 8MP lenses will amaze your selfie and video chats. Curved screen is similar to Galaxy S7 edge display. Fingerprint scanner is at the back like LG G7 has. Dual 22MP lense rear camera located above fingerprint scanner.  A powerful 3800 mAh battery lets you enjoy for 2 days if cellular data switched on. Android Oreo runs this powerful phone with Snapdragon 845 Soc, 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. I tried some apps in Nokia 9 and found neither retardness nor bugs in running. I consider this flagship as best stable smartphone of 2019.

 LG V40 – Best Competitor of Galaxy Note 9

View On Amazon

Curvy body shape of LG V40 reminds me Note 9 but without home button. So little bezels on top and bottom of display. Dual camera at the back with one flash and fingerprint scanner beneath makes it look loke G7 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. Latest chipset from Snapdragon 845 along with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage will make gamers happy. Though watching a movie will make anyone feel as if they are watching TV.

How to choose a 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.

Camera

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.

Display

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.

Battery

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.

Performance

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.

Software

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!

4G Connection

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.

Smartphone care

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.
