Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus

This is said to be the best smartphone around.  It is a big phone designed for big hands.  It puts together in a compelling package the very best on the smartphone market.  Its screen is the Super AMOLED 6.2-inch display and is measured to be one of the best around.

It has a 3500mAh battery, better than the smaller S9.  Its camera is among the best in the market.  It has dual-aperture capability which offers some great images when it gets darker.

The iPhone X

The iPhone X is the best Smartphone Apple has ever made.  This is what the iFans have been crying out for – the redesigned Apple iPhone X.  Its got a new shape, the notch on top, and more expensive.

The screen is 5.8-inch OLED, the best that Apple has ever crammed up.  Its battery life is pretty good.  It will last 12 hours if you are a heavy user.  If not,  it could comfortably last the whole day.  iPhone cameras have always been superb.  iPhone X’s camera delivers still shots that are rich in detail.

Huawei P20 Pro

The Huawei P20 Pro’s screen is a 6.1-inch display and only Full HD.  But it helps with battery life.  This is the weakest part of the phone.  It does not have the vibrant colors that its competitors have.  Its battery will get you to a day and a half of light to moderate use.  The camera is the stand out feature of this smartphone.  It offers three lenses, which are actually useful.  The resolution is pin sharp, with excellent photo optimization.

Samsung Galaxy S9

This phone is designed for those with small hands.  It is more palm-friendly, but is packed with power and top screen quality.  Screen: A QHD 5.8-inch, which takes up most of the front of the phone.  Battery life is a little disappointing.  Heavy users are advised to be prepared with wireless or fast chargers to be able last the whole day.  It only has a single sensor camera.  This means it is not good for photography.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Its S pen is its real point of differentiation.  Its screen maximizes Samsung’s dual curved edge and nearly bezel-less Infinity Display.  It has a superb camera with dual lenses for optical and digital zoom.  Its battery is not that good, but will still last you a day provided you do not do a lot of video streaming.
