Best Smartphones of 2018
The first smartphone on my list of Best Smartphones of 2018 is the OnePlus 6T. Now, this is still the best bang-for-buck flagship device that you can get out there, starting at around 500 pounds or around $550 in the US, which is great for what you’re getting. You’ve got a great AMOLED display with a very small notch surface, so if you’re somebody who doesn’t like notches, this shouldn’t be too much of a problem. You’ve also got an in-display fingerprint scanner. And the thing that I like most about OnePlus devices, is the speed. The tagline is the speed you need, and they definitely deliver. That is thanks to the powerful internals, plenty of RAM, and OxygenOS, which is very light, and very, very smooth. There’s great battery life and although you might not have some of the features that other flagships have, such as wireless charging and stereo speakers, for this price point, it is a great buy.
2.iPhone XS Max
The second smartphone in this list is actually on the other side of the pricing scale, and that is, of course, the iPhone XS Max. Also the iPhone XS, which is very similar. And if you are in the Apple ecosystem, the iPhone XS Max is the best smartphone you can buy right now. Its got an amazing display, and one of the areas where I think Apple has really improved is on the cameras. You were got great cameras this year. Smart HDR does wonders, both on the front and rear-facing cameras. And when it comes to video recording, I would go as far as saying that the iPhone XS and XS Max have the best video recording on any smartphone right now. Dynamic range is so, so good. In addition to that, you do have the Apple A12 Bionic chip, and because of the optimizations with iOS, the iPhone XS and XS Max are some of the fastest devices out there.
3.HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro
Moving on, third on my list Best Smartphones of 2018 is the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro.HUAWEI has really upped their game this year, especially with the Mate 20 Pro, and it ticks so many boxes. You’ve got three cameras at the back, and this means that you’re covering all bases. The main camera is great, but you’ve also got a telephoto camera which I would say has the best zoom on any smartphone right now. Three times optical zoom, and five times hybrid zoom. But you also have the ultra-wide camera, which I really, really like. Now, my favourite thing about the Mate 20 Pro is the battery life. Its got absolutely amazing battery life.
4.Google Pixel 3 XL
Moving on to my fourth pick off the list, and that is the Google Pixel 3 XL, as well as Google Pixel 3.Now there are two main reasons why the Pixel 3 made this list. The first is the cameras and the second is the software. Now I think unanimously you must have heard lots of people saying that the pixels have the best cameras on any smartphone. And I would definitely have to agree with that for images, not for video, unfortunately. The video definitely needs some improvement, in my opinion, when it comes to the Pixels, but images are absolutely great. You’ve got amazing, dynamic range. And the front-facing cameras, I can tell you hands-down, the Pixels take the best selfies, and that is because you’ve got dual front-facing cameras as well.
5.Samsung Galaxy Note 9
Number five we have on the list of Best Smartphones of 2018 is Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Now, this for me is one of those devices that is a great all-rounder. It might not do everything perfectly, but it does everything very, very well. Its the only device in this list that doesn’t have a notch and has a 3.5 mm jack, something that we don’t see much of these days. But in addition to that, you have what I would call the best display on a smartphone right now. You’ve still got expandable storage. You’ve got the S Pen, which you don’t have on any other device, and it does open up lots of possibilities. You’ve got an amazing design and build, personally my favourite, because of those curved edges. Something that lots of other manufacturers are now starting to copy. Samsung has been doing it for quite some time now. And you have really good cameras, overall. Although Id says that the cameras in the Note9 are not as good as something like the iPhone XS Max and the Google Pixel 3 XL. So guys this the list of Best Smartphones of 2018 hope you like this.
