We are well ahead in 2019 and as the year ends its first month, the list of world’s best smartphones updated too. Though it will not be long until these top smartphones of the world will be replaced by new ones as Mobile World Congress 2019 comes nearby. If you are eyeing for a new smartphone, you might want to wait for a while since big launches from Samsung, Sony, Nokia, and many more smartphone giants are on their way.
But before MWC 2019 takes place, we thought to present you a list of current world’s 5 best smartphones so that later we can compare, which made it to the next best list of 2019.
Huawei Mate 20 Pro
Released in November 2018, this has been a tough competition for every smartphone out there. We were confused in Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 and this device for the number one position. Turned out- this has the latest Android operating system and a better spec sheet overall.
It features a 6.39-inch display with 1440 x 3120 pixels resolution. The smartphone carries 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage along with a powerful Kirin 980 processor. The big 4200mAh battery powers this triple-rear camera smartphone. It sports 40MP + 20MP + 8MP and 24MP of front snapper with AI support on both sides.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9
Let’s say one thing upfront that the display of this device can mesmerize anyone. The 6.4-inch display comes with 2960×1440 pixels of resolution offers exceptional color reproduction. This device comes in two variants including 6GB and 8GB RAM with 128GB and 512GB internal storage respectively. The highlight of the device though is the support for 1TB external storage through micro SD card- the first ever smartphone to do so.
The 4000mAh battery smartphone device relies on an Exynos 9810 processor for performance. It has a dual camera setup of 12MP+12MP lenses at the rear and comes with 8MP front snapper for selfies.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
For many Android fans, this is still the best smartphone available in the market. And we can say that after looking at its performance. Powered by the powerful Snapdragon 845, this Android flagship was launched in March 2018. With two options of internal storage available including 64GB and 128GB, this device has a RAM of 6GB.
This device has a 6.2-inch bezel-less display with 1440 x 2960 pixels resolution. The device has a dual-lens setup of 12MP each mounted at the rear end plus the front comes with an 8MP shooter. The two parts, where we think it lacks are the battery (3500mAh) and operating system, which is Android 8.
Apple iPhone XS / iPhone XS Max
An almost bezel-free design, an improved camera, and with more power under its hood, Apple iPhone XS and XS Max are as huge as their price. We know Apple didn’t dominate this term like it always used to but no doubt the quality and performance of iPhones always make them stand among the top devices.
The iOS devices come with 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch displays with 1125x2436pixels and 1242×2688 pixels od resolution. The A12 Bionic chip performed 40% faster than the previous iPhone X. While the RAM of both the devices is 4GB, the imaging department is handled by 12MP plus 12MP rear mounted lenses with 7MP selfie snapper.
Huawei P20 Pro
We have another entry from one of the fastest emerging global smartphone brands. The Huawei P20 Pro still gives flagship level smartphones a run for their money. This was the company’s best device at that time and it features a four-camera setup of 40MP + 20MP + 8MP at the back. The front side sports a 24MP shooter.
With a 6.1-inch screen of 1080 x 2240 pixels resolution, it’s powered by Huawei own Kirin 970 backed up by a 6GB RAM and 128GB internal.
