There is no doubt that 2018 has been a great year for the smartphone. Apple, Samsung, OnePlus and Google have all been hard at work launching the latest smartphones in the year that has been packed with fantastic new phone launches.
Smartphones play a huge part in our daily lives. To some, these flat, small and rectangular items of technology have become like a fifth limb. So, without further ado, let us pour over some of the best smartphones you should consider buying.
The iPhone XS
This has only recently been launched at a huge unveiling in California. It has a massive screen, the biggest and most powerful battery, plus a display that shows HDR playback that will truly astound you.
The 512GB iPhone XS Max adds an even larger detail on the display. But you may have to wait a few months before this Rolls-Royce of smartphones hits the shops. Moreover, it is not likely to be cheap (we are talking four figures here, folks). Tip: go for the smaller 64GB storage version to keep the purchase price down considerably.
The Google Pixel 3 XL
As the successor to the Google Pixel 2 smartphone, version 3 XL is a big beauty. This phone comes with a whopping 6.3-inch display, although the annoying cut out notch at the top of the screen is something you may have to get used to.
There is a Google Pixel 3 (without the XL bit) on the market. This phone has a 5.5-inch screen and a lower price tag. But both models come with a larger than life battery that should keep even the most persistent user going all day long.
Huawei P20 Pro: Triple threat
This is an interesting smartphone: three rear-facing cameras? One of which is a 40-megapixel RGB camera. Definitely a phone for the photography buffs out there. It also comes with a powerful chip – clocking in at 2.4 G Hz and a RAM of 6GB, meaning you can toggle between applications at dynamic speed.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9
This is like a cross between a smartphone and a tablet. It comes equipped with a Samsung pen stylus for taking notes while out and about, a huge 6.4-inch screen and WQHD+ resolution, so you can be certain this phone playbacks video at the highest quality. The only downside to this phone/tablet is the starting price of £899. Get the Note 9 here.
