There’s going to be something for everyone this year! If you’re an Android fan, the Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL would be your best bet. Tests have shown that the Pixel 3 is the best phone with a camera. Other extras include Android 9 Pie and AI features like screening robo-calls.
Samsung lovers will appreciate the Galaxy S9+, which features an amazing 6.2-inch display, a very advanced camera that records good slow-motion video, and a very fast Snapdragon 845 processor. However, some reviewers have recommended waiting for the Galaxy S10 unless you can grab the S9 at a huge discount. The Note 9 has an even bigger (6.4 inch) screen and adds new capabilities to the S Pen. It also enhances the camera with AI-powered features.
Apple won’t be forgotten in 2019 thanks to the new iPhone XS Max. The Max isn’t much bigger than the iPhone 8 Plus, but its 6.5-inch OLED screen is still awe-inspiring. Its only downside is the price – not everyone can afford to shell out $1,099 for a phone. You will get a mega-powerful processor and improved cameras in return.
Of course, you don’t have to blow your paycheck on a phone just because you want a big screen. For most users, the $749 iPhone XR is the optimal choice. You get a great processor and camera, a big 6.1-inch display, and a host of fun color options.
You can enjoy premium features at a very affordable price if you go for the OnePlus 6T. It offers an immersive 6.4-inch OLED screen, a fast in-screen fingerprint reader, and flagship specs – and all this for the lump sum of $549.
Finally, those on an even tighter budget – a maximum of $250 to be exact – should check out the Moto G6. For this humble amount, users get fun and practical software features, a solid Snapdragon 450 processor, and a brightly colored 5.7-inch display with minimal bezels.
