Top 10 Best Android SmartPhones in 201920 min read

Best android smartphones

You need a new Android Smartphone but didn’t exactly know which one to choose (pretty much the reason why you’re here), there are tons of great Android options out there. It’s not easy to make up a decision. You can easily get swayed by its luxurious looks, the gorgeous design or even by the words of the salesman.

All these smartphones are brimming up with amazing new features, which makes it harder to choose from and only a few marquee elements are able to make them stand out from the rest.

That is the reason why before you make up any regrettable impulse buy, I recommend you read up first.

We will try to list as much in detail and be as honest as possible.

Best Android Smartphones:

1. Google Pixel 3

Google Pixel 3

The first in this list of Best Android SmartPhones is Google Pixel 3. The Pixel 3 is literally the best android phone out there in the market right now. It is as speedy as the phone gets. The Pixel 3 has one of the best cameras on a smartphone ever which rivals the best of the best.

One cool thing about the Pixel 3 which almost no other Android phone had is that it receives software and security updates directly from Google. One example is that Pixel 3 owners were even treated to a post-launch camera upgrade called Night Sight which boosts and improves the quality of the shots taken in the dark.

Unlike the previous two generations of Pixels, this time Google has paid special attention to the display and the Android 9 Pie software is best with this hardware which also has a new premium design.

Some other cool features include such as the all-glass back which allows for wireless charging, and Google also bundles the USB-C headphones in the box.

2. Galaxy S9

Galaxy S9

Galaxy S9 is no doubt one of the best phones of the year. It makes the phone appeal to all kinds of users with its excellent all-around experience with Samsung expertly blending design, hardware, and software.

The screen is bigger, extra camera,  along with numerous other internal upgrades such as-  more RAM, storage and a bigger battery which isn’t as noticeable.

One disappointment about Galaxy S9 is that the improvements in the camera and biometrics are not that different than the S8 but sold with a higher price tag.

OnePlus 6T

OnePlus 6T  is the first OnePlus phone without a headphone jack but still emerges as one of the best Android smartphones. What makes this phone to the list is due to some of these amazing features such as on-screen fingerprint sensor, better speaker and more battery is the pay-off, and it’s totally worth it.

Looking for a great camera phone? With the one-two punch of the pinhole camera on the front and the genuinely unique holographic V effect on the glass rear, now your photos look amazing. Also from just about any angle the Honor View 20 is absolutely stunning to look at.

Honor View 20 has two models. The base model is at  £499 and for the one with extra RAM and storage, it cost only £579. Compared with other expensive phones, it’s pretty much at an affordable pricing range.

Still, it isn’t the best Android smartphone yet with many premium features missing such as waterproof, wireless charging,  etc. Other than that, all in all, it is a really decent phone.
