Smartphone Buying Guide

Before we tell you of our top picks, it’s essential that you understand that when it comes to phones and other consumer electronics, it is not a one shoe size fits all affair. The best phone for you may not be someone else’s. That is why when buying a phone, it is important that you consider these five things: design, features, ease of use, performance, and quality.

It is also essential that you ask yourself do you want an iPhone or an Android phone. Of course, there are other mobile phone operating systems, but these two are the common ones. Whether you have an iPhone or an Android smartphone, moving your contacts and data from one to another is easy. However, the paid for apps can’t be shared. Thus, it’s crucial that you bear this in mind when considering a change of platform.

Our Top Picks

1. iPhone XS Max

This is the best smartphone money can buy. You may think that $1099 is so much money to pay for just a phone, but wait till you get the ginormous and gorgeous 6.5 inch OLED display, high-quality cameras and the quickest processor you’ve ever come across with. And that’s not all. We are wowed with its larger canvas for watching videos, split screen view that works with certain apps and a battery that can store charge for hours. iPhone XS Max is the right phone to have for people who aren’t planning to buy another communication device in the next 2 to 3 years.

2. Huawei P30 Pro

For picture lovers, don’t look further than this gorgeous phone. We love it because of the four rear camera set-up. It enables you to not only to capture photos, but you can also zoom and lower the light still while taking the pictures. Huawei, being one of the largest phones manufactures in the world impressed us with this model that features a sleek design and impressive battery life. Well, this is not exactly a cheap phone. However, considering you get 128GB storage space and a fingering scanner, and all the specs we’ve discussed above, it’s undoubtedly worth your money.

3. Google Pixel 3

On the outside the phone is quite attractive, the back is all glass and is frosted to hide fingerprints and scratches more easily than other phones. The phone has everything a regular smartphone user may need. It is lightweight, and its performance is unmatchable. Google pixel 3 presents you with a 5.5-inch FHD +OLED screen. But the most compelling reason why we recommend this phone is the software experience which compared to all other android phones is the best. All Google features such as Gmail’s smart compose are found on this phone, and everything else from the operation to the animation is just incredible.
