How could we forget to add the list of best smartphones? The smartphone list was missing on Technpick. Since the list has been requested by some of you. We decided to review the best smartphones for you as our visitors’ interest is always our priority.

Different types of smartphones available on the market. But these days the question isn’t that “what is a smartphone”. The real question is that “which smartphone should I buy from the market”. That could operate with fast OS or Android. Right? The best Android phone compatible with the operating system and processing fast, that could be the pick.

Some people regret buying a smartphone that caught their mind on a first glimpse. And afterward, it doesn’t fulfill their requirements and is laggy as a whole after storing some data in there. It’s because they have to trust the smartphone technology without having to experience it.

No doubt, the graphical user interface of the best smartphone should be appealing to the audience but it doesn’t mean that it’s everything. Every user has different experiences and demands. I am happy with my Galaxy S9 Plus, it could do everything I want. That is the real demand, your satisfaction.

The best smartphone should always have every capability to fulfill one’s needs. From performance to attractive GUI to processing everything accurately and also three of the most important aspects like camera quality, battery life and supporting all the applications, everything should be on top of the line. right?

Top 10 Best Smartphones Of 2020 Reviews And Comparison

I would be honest with you guys. iPhone X isn’t my favorite as I am not a big fan of the iPhone. It’s a good smartphone on the market in every aspect but just because its face recognition technology failed on the day of launch, it doesn’t cross my mind anymore.

But after all of that, I wouldn’t say that it’s not the best smartphone, of course, it’s the best technology that you would want to have. That’s why we have reviewed it for you guys. The review for iPhone X is right here in case you want to check it out.

Overview

On top of our list is Samsung galaxy s9 plus and most probably the most popular and best android phone in the world right now. Thanks to the Samsung for Galaxy s9 plus release that features such great spec inside that eye-catching and interest driving beauty and making its place on top of Technpick lists.

Galaxy S9 Plus is the one masterpiece that comes with a big design built for big hands. It’s the most popular smartphone that offers a 6.2 inches display, comes with 158.1 x 73.8 x 8.5mm dimension and weighs 189g which makes it lighter than we expected.

I have to say, absolutely amazing and premium build quality of these best smartphones. Besides that, we also loved testing its 1440 x 2960P resolutions as it delivered a crisp and clear display. We also loved using the 4k60fps and slow-mo smartphone technology added to the phone which we will be discussing in the Samsung galaxy s9 plus review. So let’s jump into the real stuff. should we?

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus Screen

The mobile phones come with a 6.2 inches super OMLED which is one of the best smartphones displays these days around with the best color quality, having an awesome dynamic range plus delivers great viewing angles experience.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus Battery Life

S9 plus is one of the best smartphones but the battery life of the galaxy s9 plus isn’t that impressive and most probably it’s one of the downsides that we found in the smartphone but still, it’s way better than the smaller s9. Unlike the s9 the “plus” comes with the 3500mAh battery which we are thankful to the Samsung for adding this to the plus model. If we compare the battery with Samsung Galaxy Note 9, the performance is real though Note 9 has a massive 4000mAh battery.

The Battery Test

The charging time for one of the most popular smartphones was faster than we expected. During our test, we experienced the battery life went from 0% to 19% in the first 15 minutes. On our further calculations, the battery went to 38% in just 30 minutes.

In 45 minutes the phone battery went to 58% comfortably and at 41 minutes we were at 100% which way faster charging time than many best smartphones out on the market and most probably the charging time is the same as galaxy s8 plus. Now let us know the battery life when it gets fully charged. We tested the usage time for these best smartphones. We ran a test by playing a 71 minutes long HD video on the phone, sinking the battery from 100% to 89% which is exactly an 11% decrease.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus Camera

The Samsung s9 plus is powered with one of the best cameras out there right now. The rear camera is Dual 12MP and the front camera is 8MP with dual-aperture which helps in situations where things get darker. In short, it works like a human eye. Also, the f/1.5 aperture is added to the camera.

It is the world’s first for the smartphone camera. I must say the camera sensor with built-in memory on the galaxy s9 plus makes it even smarter when the colors look washed out during the higher exposure. In short, one of the best smartphones with a smarter back and front camera. One of the other best smartphone technologies that come with galaxy s9 plus the camera is the 960fps slow-motion aperture which is on top of the line. However, the front camera is the same as the galaxy s8 plus.

The letdowns for this one of the world’s best smartphones are that its battery doesn’t last long as compared to other most popular smartphones and some of the specifications are not different than the galaxy s8 plus. Moreover, it’s pricey for the extra screen(0.4 inches) they have added to the smartphone.

Bottom line

Well, I am impressed with the glooming look and sparkling performance of this smartphone. One of my all-time favorite phones would recommend for every Android lover. One thing is clear about this ones’ battery would not last too long. Outstanding cameras on the front and rear dual cameras can give the exact view as you see it.

2. iPhone X

iPhone X

Mini verdict

The latest one in the world of best smartphones from Apple, an iPhone with charming beauty and a Glowing look. The extra bezels removed to improve the screen width and the face tracker for security purposes is out of this world addition.

iPhone X Specifications

Released: 2017

OS: IOS 11 | Screen Size: 5.8 inch | Resolutions: 1125 x 2436P | Weight: 174g | Dimensions: 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7 mm | RAM: 3GB* | Storage: 64GB/256GB | Battery: 2,716mAh* | Back Camera: Dual 12MP | Front Camera: 7MP | CPU: A11 Bionic

With
  • Premium Design
  • Water Proof
  • Awesome Screen
  • Powerful Truedepth camera
Against
  • Expensive flagship
  • The metal rim can get scratches pretty easily

Overview

We are on number two on the list of best smartphones and picked up iPhone X. The graph of Apple is on the rise after releasing iPhone 8 plus and iPhone X one after another. The changes in the headset connectivity feature are tremendous. It’s a huge leap by Apple for introducing something different. Plus the IOS 11.3 update is another best thing about the iPhone X and is categorized in the best smartphones 2020.

Apple has also decided to launch its Beta version which will be out in a few days. The iPhone is having a great impact on the smartphone industry since they launched the original iPhone back in 2007 and until now lots of updates have been done in the technology. Thanks to the iPhone X for existing and making its place on our smartphone list.

The company itself is calling their technology the future of smartphone and I guess the vision of Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak has become true which they had back in 1976. As the iPhone X is all about having new experiences and features, but I think they’re charging more for those features and the technology comes pricey.

iPhone X Design

The iPhone X looks a lot different than other smartphones launched by Apple. It looks good than phone 8, 6, 7. The iPhone X is taller than the iPhone 8 plus narrower and smaller than the iPhone 8 plus with 5.8 inches display. I think I don’t need to tell you that it looks stunning, just look at the picture. It’s probably one of the attractive and best smartphones in the market.

Just like an Apple watch, the sides are upgraded from aluminum to stainless steel, one of the coolest replacements done in the world of new smartphones. The front and back are all glass and shiny enough that as soon as I held the mobile phone in my hand, I saw the fingerprints on the casing. please excuse me for having such sweaty and greasy hands.

There is a thin bezel surrounding the smartphone’s screen which means it eliminates the place for a home button as the iPhone x, one of the world’s best smartphones doesn’t come with a thick bezel. Moreover, the exact dimensions for iPhone X are 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7mm which makes it smaller than the iPhone 8 plus. It’s also pretty lighter than the previous smartphone we reviewed the galaxy s9 plus, with 174g weight.

iPhone X Face ID

As I mentioned earlier, I wasn’t impressed with the iPhone because if it faces ID feature so it was important for it works perfectly every single time during the test. But thankfully, the feature works quite perfectly in both dark and light situations. Plus you can’t just fool the system by putting the videos and pictures in front of the screen to verify your identity. iPhone x face ID is pretty clever and will never accept any of that except you face. There have been rumors about the unlocking of the screen by twins by I think this is a rare case.

But if your face is greasy and you put it in front of the iPhone x the face ID isn’t perfect in this case as you might have seen in the launch video. But it doesn’t matter a lot as the fingerprint isn’t perfect as well in many best smartphones including iPhone 8 plus in situations where your fingers are sweaty and greasy. The same was the case with iPhone 8, classy in operating in such situations.

iPhone X Screen

The on the smartphone is on another level this time with LCD screen and OLED panel. It’s the first time Apple introduced this on its smartphone technology excluding the Apple watch. This technology is used before by many smartphones but thanks to Apple for introducing this with the highest resolutions of 2436 x 1125 pixels. The other interesting fact is, the iPhone x also supports the Dolby Vision HDR, plus the DCI P3 color gamut which is the coolest thing in the best smartphone world.

The viewing angles are not always that perfect in a smartphone as we expect. Even the Google Pixel 2 XL, galaxy s9, s9 plus and smartphone list continues which are also weak in this part. However, the viewing angles on the iPhone X smartphones aren’t that bad as we experienced an unnoticeable odd blue tinge when the screen is off the axis which is fine I guess if you don’t focus too much on it. Today in the market of best smartphones Apple has its style and class when we talk about screen especially.

iPhone X Panel

Apple claims that the Panel is different than the Samsung galaxy s9 and Note 8 plus panels as they have optimized these panels different than Samsung. Moreover, the Screen adjust its temperature according to the environment because of the True Tone plus 3D Tone allows you to apply different levels of pressure to let the iPhone X do some alternative tasks and is the best cell phone regarding this technology

Bottom Line

This release of the iPhone X with LCD screen and OLED panel is really attractive. I was not expecting the face detection system would be so genius and effective. It works in dark and light perfectly and you won’t be able to fool the system by putting some pictures or video in front of it to unlock the phone. The sides are upgraded with aluminum-steel to give a strengthen protect and strong signal strength to the phone reception. A perfect invent of the tech engineers worth to have this class.

3. Samsung Galaxy S9

Samsung Galaxy S9

Mini verdict

Samsung Galaxy S9 is the best smartphone from Samsung but the same as the Plus released after S9. It has some minor differences with S9 Plus including the screen length. Along with the spectacular specs and features, S9 has a charming beauty and Glowing look.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Specifications

Dimension: 147.7 x 68.7 x 8.5mm | Weight: 163g | Screen size: 5.8 inch | CPU: Snapdragon 845/ Exynos 9810 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | 12MP rear, 8MP front | Battery: 3000mAh | Resolutions: 2,220 x 1080p

With
  • Secure with biometric.
  • Powerful and lag-free.
  • Crisp and clear display.
  • Impressive design.
  • Awesome Specs and features
Against
  • Battery life isn’t impressive.
  • Pricey.

Overview

Samsung galaxy s9 is interesting. At first, I thought it’s no different than the 2017’s version which is Galaxy s8 as there were small updates like the barely change on the fingerprint sensor which was more logically placed on the phone. But no doubt galaxy s9 one of the best smartphones as I heard before and things turned out even more different.

There are many other best popular smartphones like G7 and Xperia XZ2 who joined the fray and made the competition even tougher. But the real question is “is galaxy s9 better than all these smartphones in every department?” Let’s find out.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Design

Before the s8 was released, the market on the design side was getting stale, soon when the s8 was released with a quite different design. The side bezels the other phones had vanished in s8 and were replaced with an extra screen that almost reaches the edges of the phone. Since the screen got wider and the market was on the rise once again. They released the Samsung galaxy s9 with the same design. Other than that the Samsung smartphones still follow the same design and s8 is still one of the best phones as it was before.

This time the fingerprint sensor on the S9 is on the much better position rather than attached to the camera like in Galaxy S5. But there’s one small lag, after getting your fingers on the sensor, it gets you to the home screen. The curved display, IP68 water resistance, and the SD card slot on the phone are retained. The screen is thicker so a better upgrade for saving your smartphone’s screen from breaking during unintentional bumps and drops. Moreover, the overall built material is still metal and glass.

The Bixby button is introduced right below the volume rockers but the fact is, it can only be used with a virtual assistant. It’s a big push for Samsung and I am waiting for the 2.0 version of it but honestly speaking, it wasn’t for me, turning it off was a better option. If we compare the galaxy s9 and its elder brother, the galaxy s9 plus, the s9 is preferable as it has a 5.8-inch display and smaller dimensions. Using it, on one hand, would be easier for anyone.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Screen

Most of the Samsung flagships come with an incredible display having rich colors with crisp and clear images delivery. The AMOLED quad-HD+ Panel is slightly curved having a size of 5.8 inches with perfect brightness. I must say Samsung did a great job of making the display that attractive to us.

The much-impressed thing in a screen is a customization option, where you’ll find more rich colors in a saturated mode with a blue hue. Switching to AMOLED cinema mode is, even more, relaxing to the eyes. I would recommend this option as it won’t affect your eyesight. In short, everything is customizable. You can reduce or increase the blue, red and green color effects on the screen with the customization option.

The HDR content is fully supported by the Samsung galaxy s9, even you can use sources like Netflix and Amazon prime with HDR10 for watching TV shows and movies with the best color gamut and contrast. Theirs is also a blue filter mode where you can see things with more brightness. The viewing angles are awesome, even in the outdoors situations, you’ll see things more clearly. The one problem that it has is the blue shift at the edges that comes with most of the best smartphones in the market. However, It’s the best display I have ever experienced.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Battery life

The battery on the mobile phone is categorized as average as it’s almost the same as the s8. It’s surprising for us that the company still isn’t able to leverage the 3000mAh to give us the most battery life out of it. I was expecting a larger battery size in galaxy s9 but still, we got the same one as in s8.

During the test we were I was able to spend a day with the battery life at 100% and at 9 pm I found the need for a charger. The company could have resigned everything on the battery side as Apple did to iPhone X but now it’s released no one can do anything about it.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Camera

Samsung smartphones have always been great at cameras and the same is the case with s9. I was pretty impressed with the camera after using it for some time. The fixed aperture lens is eliminated and instead, shifting between f/2.4 and f1.4 has been done that provides great optics.

Just because of this little shift, the galaxy s9 camera took the day and night photography to another level. Moreover, the rear and front camera come with different modes that let you experience different effects on the images to make it look good.

Bottom Line

Hence the Galaxy S9 Plus are the best smartphones with awesome specs. It fulfills everyone’s needs plus the camera is on another level just like many other smartphones from Samsung. But still this time there is some modification done in the s9 camera which is great. The only thing I am not impressed with its battery life. But still, the s9 is the one flagship that beats many best Smartphones out there in the market. Period.!

4. Huawei P20 Pro

Huawei P20 Pro

Mini verdict

Huawei now earned the name to stand in the line of most of the big competitors. With the release of this phone, Huawei proved its worth and brought the revolution in smartphone technology.

Huawei P20 Pro Specifications

Release date: April 2018 | Weight: 180g | Dimensions: 155 x 73.9 x 7.8 mm | OS: Android 8.1 | Screen size: 6.1-inch | Resolution: 1080 x 2240 | CPU: Kirin 970 | RAM: 6GB | Storage: 128GB | Battery: 4,000mAh | Rear camera: 40MP + 20MP + 8MP | Front camera: 24MP

With
  • Packed with best specfications.
  • Best build quality.
  • Loud stereo speakers with amazing sound quality.
  • Powered with finger print sensor.
Against
  • Only Full HD Display
  • The Interface is not a market leading

Overview

Looking at that price tag on the Huawei P20 Pro as it’s more expensive than most of the smartphones out there in the market and it might shock you for a sec but it returns it also offers tremendous specs and features. But it doesn’t come expensive than the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus or an iPhone X.

Now Huawei in smartphone technology is popular among the folks and making some beautifully designed best smartphones. With easy understanding software Huawei is making the best phones today. By including some of the quality features Huawei has made its way to stand in the line of best brands in the market. The test process wasn’t just for days. We tried this phone for weeks so that we could have a better experience and write a more informative review for you. Let’s get started with the design.

Huawei P20 Pro Design

I consider myself pretty lucky by putting my hands on this shiny smartphone. Yes, the phone is designed for big hands with a 6.1-inch size. Its reflective design makes the smartphone a better one in the mobile phone’s fray.

The metal used in building the phone is aluminum with polished finish plus it looks exactly like steel but actually, it’s not. After a week of spending time with Huawei P20 Pro, the two gorilla glass on the phone was still scratch-free and the design quality was maintained.

The phone is common with black and blue color and most of the people in the UK are using it but there we have another option which we call the super car’s color which is purple at the top and greenish-turquoise at the bottom. The reason we call it a super car’s color is because it’s pretty rare on the smartphones and most common on the cars.

The thickness of the Huawei P20 Pro is 7.8mm alongside overall dimensions of 155 x 73.9 x 7,8mm which makes it a bigger smartphone in the fray. The screen on the phone isn’t curved at its sides as the other best smartphones like galaxy s9 plus and the other popular phones from Samsung previously. But it doesn’t matter as long as the screen provides high resolutions and clear display.

Huawei P20 Pro Screen

It is coming in 6.1-inches AMOLED display 1080 x 2244 resolution screen and the display feature is only Full HD. On one side if we analyze the full HD screen is helping in the improvement of battery life.

This is, in fact, a bit negative impression of this phone. I am saying this because during the test I observed that the deficiency in colors was not an impressive part. However, a screen protector is pre-installed on the screen to protect it from scratches and rough damages.

The 18.7:9 aspect ratio of the screen is a really good one. The count of numbers is unusual but in fact, it is a Full HD Screen. As compared to Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus Pixels’ count i.e. 529ppi this one is far away with the numbers 408ppi pixels compactness.

If you look at it closely you would find that due to the sub-standard of pixels. It would give you a low-level resolution display. However, the Huawei Pro display is not bad to a large extent. The insane pixel density would make it rich in perceiving resolution on display.

Huawei P20 Pro Battery Life

We made a comparison for battery life with some other most popular smartphones and no one could beat it. If you use it normally with a full charge it would give you wake up time up to one day and a half. With hard use, you would get a day without charging it again. But when the phone becomes loaded with some heavy apps the battery life goes down. Though Huawei P20 Pro would give you a nice battery life.

Huawei P20 Pro Camera

A massive three lenses camera is installed on Huawei P20 Pro offering some outstanding features. The dazzlingly image stabilization would blow your mind. The 40MP sensor is excellent in boosting the low light performance for images. The image optimization software is impressive in optimizing images. Simply an amazing camera is installed on Huawei P20 Pro.

Reliability and Interface

Huawei P20 Pro is powered by 8.1 androids with the Huawei EMUI 8.1 interface. If you already experienced Huawei smartphone from last year’s release with top quality specs and features. You know the worth of this one, and if you did not use anyone previously we cover you here.

It would give the complete freedom of organizing the apps as per your choice. However, Huawei P20 Pro on its first turning on would give you the iOS-like functions when you close an app. The apps would finish up on the home screen like the iPhone. It’s up to you now, how you organize your smartphone and customize the app’s settings to arrange it and where you want to place it.

Bottom Line

The advanced artificial intelligence is making this phone in the line of some leading brands. It has a super cool camera with wonderful results in low light. Sincerely, No other smartphone is providing such a beautiful camera Huawei P20 Pro provided. Looking at the price tag if you compare the worth of this smartphone. If somebody asks me which is the best cell phone with such specs and features. I would straight away suggest this one. After testing it I am giving my verdict. This is one of the best smartphones in terms of its price. Huawei improved the battery life on this one and also put hard efforts on the make of the camera.

5. LG G7 ThinQ Smartphone

Overview

We always rely on some well know good quality brands gadgets or products to utilize in our routine life. We are leveraging some of the emerging brands’ new smartphones which are stronghold competitors to compete for all the big giants out there who have a hold on the market.

Even we are also conscious of nomenclature when we choose something. LG G7 ThinQ smartphone has an irritable name. But, believe me, it is a super pack of specs and features new smartphones with some advanced level.

LG G7 ThinQ Smartphone Specs and software

The addition of Flagship Qualcomm’s SnapDragon 845 smartphone chip saved LG for committing the mistake. The mistake which the company did in the manufacturing of LG G6 with Snapdragon 821. It is coming in a variability option for choosing either 64GB Internal storage capacity of 128GB with 6GB of RAM. The micro SD Card Slot for expandable storage is another advantage to extend the storage capability.

In the meantime, we observed that other companies are still stuck in the Flagship level 835. Now if we make a smartphone comparison chart. LG G7 would be on top in the introduction of flagship advanced level specs. So it is easy to say that LG G7 is fast enough to compete with the big giants in the market.

The latest operating system care of Android Oreo is making double the charm. And making this the best phone out right now. There is no big difference in the actual software from the predecessors. The LG’s Smart Bulletin Interface is now with a dedication on the bottom down left menu.

LG G7 ThinQ Smartphone Screen

LG has provided a marvelously amazing screen with a large display best one around incapacities with some best smartphone technology. LED is preferred here because the super bright and lightning screen does not seem to be OLED. The outstanding capability of delivering out of the world brightness.

You would not believe to hear it can handle HDR10 and Dolby Vision playback. It is a good looking screen large in size and expansive guise with a smaller notch. It won’t be wrong to say that it is one of the most capable screens around.

LG G7 ThinQ Smartphone Battery Life

Not so bad in comparison with some others those start to eke into two it would last for a whole day. It is not terrible, with some genius clear background of processing and keeping things going on with such a large screen. The 3000 mAh battery is not making LG larger in the market out there. But the overall battery life is good to have a phone the whole day switched on.

Bottom Line

The smartphone list is getting bigger and if we compare smartphones for knowing which smartphone should I buy. Smartphone technology is now reached to the max. And this one is the example of providing the fastest speed I ever experienced in smartphones. After I completed testing it, I was shocked by the cool performing experience. I researched the people who already used it. And read out some of the latest smartphone reviews, and made up my mind that it is the one in competition. The best android phone with some amazing features. If you want a phone to experience the real speed. And can come up with an explanation of what is a smartphone, this one is the perfect one.

It won’t be able to compete with iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30. The screen is 18:9 aspect with ultra-wide width.

The Real Grip and Protection

Grab your Huawei Mate Pro 10 with a soft feel. The slight curve across both axes is making the grip stronger to hold it. Somehow the high-gloss metal sides without any flaw producing a texture combination with sufficient grip. It is firmly positioning in the middle of premium smartphones when it comes to the color integrity and viewing angles.

The pre-fitted screen protector and a soft plastic casing for the protection is an additional accessory which is making it a luxury. When you normally get a phone from the market you won’t have these accessories along. You need to purchase it separately, the fact also sustained here about the dependency of your tastes and choices. Even you don’t need to protect Huawei Mate 10 Pro with a screen glass in the presence of Gorilla Glass and the case as well in such a strong chassis.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro Camera, Security, And Battery Life

A massive dual-lens camera is onboard with Huawei Mate 10 Pro release. The super cool features of the camera include a bunchy pack on these best smartphones. The result in two mini camera bumps is a super amazing visual demonstration of your captured views. If you want ideal camera results, then Huawei would ditch you in these features.

The fingerprint sensor would enable you to protect your smartphone with your fingerprints. No one else would be able to open the main menu without your fingerprints. Strong backing support by Huawei to include these features would amaze you. The fingerprint scanner with a nice tactile recess would ensure the quick scanning process to find a natural layout. It is worth to mention that Huawei Mate 10 Pro is available in four different colors.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro is coming with a massive big 4000mAh Battery. It has a large battery cell inside and competing with all the major competitors. At the start when Mate 10 Pro was first released the battery was lasting up to one day only. But the update in the software right after the release of Mate 10 Pro made it alive for 24 consecutive hours. Now your phone can stay awake for a day and a night without charging. Well, the real quest for what is smartphone battery real capacity is answered by Huawei in this release. As a benchmark for other types of smartphones now everyone should struggle to improve as there is an improvement to make.

Bottom Line

I never came across such a spectacular phone in the competitive budget. In the smartphone comparison chart, it got its top rating and competing for most of the big names on the market. The most incredible part is the class-leading battery life and strength to perform the tasks with the fast and smart process. The water resistance capacity with the stereo speaker is a blasting glow of Huawei in Mate 10 Pro. The storage capacity is enough to cover you in saving your stuff, I am personally not happy with the SD Card absence.

Overview

I am going to review another one from the best smartphones out there in the market and the list of best smartphones would feel not happy without this one. Galaxy S8 Plus is a long size edge screen smartphone with high specs and features.

It is expensive if you compare smartphone prices it would hurt your vault. Top smartphones are not hard to find today but this one differs a bit from the other. Galaxy S series is the origin of Samsung’s history.

With S series Samsung started the journey towards smartphone technology. Samsung achieved most of the levels in developing the interface people love to use. There is still a lot of space for improvement in the development of top smartphones. The time of some smartphone technology power by vibranium sort of energy from Wakanda. Wow a phone powered by vibranium huh, it is still a dream as vibranium does not exist in reality.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Design

Cool guys, the reasonable size for a big smartphone with these dimensions. You have the liberty to maximize the nearly bezel-less screen on these best smartphones. The water and dust resistance with a stellar IP68 rate is amazing as it keeps your phone clean and crystal glowing shiny.

Best android phone with top of the line specs and equally high price. But the elegant design with the specs it has it is worthy to have. The elegant design with the long screen if a superb combination by Samsung. The screen is hardly half an inch long from 5.7 Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. It is the design which gives it the beauty that you would say it is a tall one. The difference in the length of the screen is not that much. The elimination of needless bezels is really important to mention here; I love that part.

Cutting-Edge VR Enabled Best Smartphones

By having one of these best smartphones, you should know that you are having the most cutting-edge VR enabled smartphone available. Civilized manhood among us was enthusiastic about having such a phone from years. A screen you can do your task in hand with all portable facilitation. It was a dream and the design in vision is now out there in the market. But in my opinion, it is still a bit small smartphone not easy to hold.

In designing S8 Plus Samsung specially put some effort into removing the extra bezels. Samsung successful conceived with the highly classical curve edge on the face of the screen. Also, the top and bottom extra bezels are now disappeared to make S8 Plus in a more appropriate and elegant design.

I made out the exact measurement and it came up with dimensions 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1mm and weighs 173g. If I compare smartphones like Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge it appears taller and more attractive to them. You would be happy to know that the iPhone 7 Plus is a bit wider and small in size but heavy in weight than S8 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Display

It is coming is a new 18.5:9 aspect ratio in a 6.2-inch screen with the HDR quality of a visionary display. I found it the best smartphones display ever in the smartphone world. You would be able to max the immersive AMOLED with the Quad HD by keeping 1080p at default.

One of the best smartphones displays in the world of smartphones. The insertion of extra megapixels into the surface for a more bright and cleaner vision is a cool one.

That is not all here yet!

The screen dimensions are the superb one with the aspect ratio mentioned above. If we compare the screen display ratio with the phone’s body it easily reaching 88%. On the Samsung S7 Edge, the ration of the screen to the body was 76%.

It is a great improvement by removing the extra bezels from the face and on the edges with a nice curve. Top smartphones like iPhone 7 Plus parallel to S8 Plus have 68% of the ratio which is far less in measurement.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Apps And Interface

The improved TouchWiz user interface would make you love it. A great upgrade in most of the apps you used on the previous all mobile smartphones. The menu shortcuts on these best smartphones with new gestures on the face and glowing shiny display of the content are spectacularly beautiful.

With the latest updates in the OS system by Android improved the default keyboard with emoji expanded offers. A big and powerful enough smartphone with slickest interface and top of the line specs onboard. The Samsung experience is now allowing you with many options.

Google’s Android 7.0 Nougat operating system was introduced in this release, you can update it to the Neo 8.1 later. The generalized search would enable you to find anything on your phone.

Hard To Find Something?

Especially at the moment when you are unable to find something these features of suggestions are really helpful on such occasions. The suggestions for help on the go are cool and spectacular to get out of something you are stuck in or searching for something on this smartphone technology.

Every S8 color option has a black front face, I was worried about the black throw of colors on videos especially on these best smartphones. But I was wrong it won’t make you irritable, as it feels so good. I tested it for cropping content and it fits good with the widescreen. If you experienced the HD quality of display introduced previously you would rank this one on top.

The apps on switching from smart crop to fit screen are a bit boring. The apps are not able to remember the preferred content. I hate such tedious things on smart devices. But the display on videos would attract you on this large widescreen with 4k experience.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Battery Life

Well, the battery capacity S8 Plus is the same was in S7 Edge, a 35000mAh battery is onboard. And here you can also see the capacity of S8 Plus battery. Now the query is which is the best cell phone for a long battery. Either the battery should be powerful or the system support should be optimized. I would not compromise on quality in all mobile phones.

Due to some preinstalled tricks for saving the battery, it would give you one day and a half wake up time with a full charge. The full charge takes about one hour and 14 minutes with a wireless charging system.

If we compare smartphones from the market, some are coming up with 5000mAh capacity. But here is the tricky part played by Samsung. The company is intact some of the apps to keep you saving power. These features would allow you to optimize your phone for longer battery life. Samsung is successful in this effort and you would not need everyday battery charging. It would power up your smartphone for one day and a half.

Bottom Line

A super cool release from Samsung, I like smartphones from Samsung. There some of the best Android smartphones and some from the tablets. A nice and tricky intervention to maximize the screen by minimizing the bezels. The first-ever sci-fi-looking smartphone I am seeing from the company.

A nice interface with suggestions and guidance and a cute gesture. You would be happy with this one to experience. One thing I would need to mention here about the camera. Yes, it has a superb camera with extremely photogenic features.

8. iPhone 8 Plus

iPhone 8 Plus review

Mini verdict

A solid one from iPhone among the best smartphones like iPhone X and Galaxy S9. In the smartphone comparison chart, it is standing next to iPhone X. iPhone X has its charm but this one is offering a traditional iPhone style button at the center of the bottom.

iPhone 8 Plus Specifications

Release date: September 2017 | Weight: 202g | Dimensions: 158.4 x 78.1 x 7.5mm | OS: iOS 11 | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1080 x 1920 | CPU: A11 Bionic | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 64/256GB | Battery: 2691mAh | Rear camera: Dual 12MP | Front camera: 7MP

With
  • Charge fast, wireless charging is best
  • Super powerful dual camera
  • The premium design back glass
Against
  • On average battery life
  • Traditional style

Overview

Still, it goes on, we not yet finished with all the best smartphones. In real meaning, we would not be able to complete it in this post. Exactly, I am pretty sure you would have got my point. We cannot cover all the best smartphones in a single post. Later on, I would include some more in the list of updates.

Apple has its taste with a unique interface and operating system. I selected here the iPhone 8 Plus for review in the list of best smartphones. iPhone X is already in the market but still, there are phones from Apple to compete the parallel out there in the market. Let’s get to the review to know this little guy.

The Processing Of Tasks

Smartphone technology developed to the extent where you need to ask a question after seeing the smartphone comparison chart. The quest is “which smartphone should I buy”. And it does not sound crazy. The reason behind is a saturated market with so many brands. So many models of the same brand. Here is a pro trick to gauge which one is the best smartphone.

Everyone sees it every day the specs and the features of a smartphone. The same is the case with iPhone 8 Plus. The most solid and powerful smartphone. Six cores inside the single chipset are cool. From these six the four are most efficient one which performs on normal tasks. Where two of them work on a small task and the other two do the hardcore job by providing support in photo editing or intensive multitasking.

A11 Bionic engine is equipped with the stuff mentioned above. Well, the title Bionic does not give any indication about what it would do. Anyhow what we would do to change the name of this we only have concerns with its functions and its function is suggestive.

iPhone 8 Plus Screen and Speakers

Some outstanding improvements in some major and targeted areas to bring it with advanced smartphone technology. The color reproduction and temperature is a nice move to target the major areas. It is not only the screen by looking you say nothing improved. We dig out the deep making beyond the specs and features sheet.

I am talking about the upgrades in the color reproduction of the screen and the temperature of the screen. In day to day life we normally miss out on such things but when we experience it in some other model then we realize the fact of performance. You might notice the color temperature is changing continuously the display to adjust to the surrounding environment.

The best smartphones in the world are not rare to find today. But the one with such specs and a traditional way to use would hard to find. The amazing speakers for a nice sound experience are installed on this phone. Extremely noticeable speakers with loud sound capacities.

iPhone 8 Plus Camera

An amazing camera added to iPhone 8 plus with some great updates and upgrades. The improved texture reproduction and sharpness has the worth to mention here. The additional powerful editing options are making the phone more valuable. It is enabled with the live photo capturing capacities. The low light performance is a unique one on a phone camera.

Well, we cannot call this phone camera a revolution in the world of smartphone technology. Though, long story short, the iPhone made some evolutionary effects to give a nice camera. You know my friends Apple does not need to reinvent something new. The reason is the fact about Apple products existed in the market today and have an outstanding class and quality. So if the camera is coming with some evolution on this phone, Apple already did its efforts to invent a unique tech. If we compare smartphones the iPhone is still the best one and has the best smartphone camera ever. In smartphone comparison, I compared it with iPhone 8 and some updates are making this one better.

The features and specs produced by the brand already defining the quality. So if Apple is not making any revolution, still, it is producing some of the best noticeable features with every new release. With the release of every new iOS, there is always something new. The power insertion with the sensor on this smartphone camera’s it giving it a class to capture the view as you see.

The Real Stuff Onboard

Well, that’s not all here!

The 12 megapixels’ camera with the powerful processor making this smartphone on top in the traditional bezel smartphones. Apple’s image signal processor (IPS) into a bionic chipset with an A11 unit is enabling you for capturing the scenes in a more detail reproductive way. The results are cool on this powerful setup. Sometimes the average texture of the captured images would disappoint you. But overall results are awesome with the low light image capturing tests and in full light tests.

iPhone 8 Plus Operating System

It is, in fact, the operating system 11 which is making the best smartphones with improved stuff onboard. Some other upgrades like the control center and the 3D touch are superb combinations. Relatively the company did not invest in the visual changes. However, the improvements are making the phone a super-fast one.

The improved 3D is a nice call to include in the phone interface for a smooth operation. Now you can do what you want to do with your phone. Other third-party apps now offering an extension to load you with more options. For real benefits in long terms, you always need to remember these features on your smartphone.

The US user of the iPhone 8 Plus has the option of Apple pay app to bring more convenience in life. The iOS is updating every day and with every update, the company is putting its efforts to fix the bugs to give you smooth usability options.

iPhone 8 Plus Battery Life

Well, folks, how could we leverage this part in a review. Especially when we are speaking about the best smartphones. A battery is the most essential part to make a device a completely functional one. These best new smartphones have a middling battery onboard to give power. Not so bad on the run during tests of this phone’s battery in our tech testing lab. It would give you a pleasing experience with all hard tasks.

On the use of normal apps like WhatsApp or Viber, These best smartphones would range to the end of the day. The same is the case with some light-weighted graphical games. The guys who do not mind with the normal performance on the run, they would find it friendly.

We tested it for using the camera for a whole day by capturing a different kind of stuff on every setup. The battery gave the company one day and after the evening it was still 18%. So in simple and short words, iPhone 8 Plus battery would last around for one whole day.

Bottom Line

After the detailed review of these best smartphones, I am concluding it with some of my personal opinions. Who would love this phone? Well, it is not easy to answer. However, as per the experience and knowledge I have in the world of smartphones. I would recommend these top smartphones to the guys who love to see a large screen with powerful long-lasting battery life. The Apple lovers would recognize and admit the verdict that this one is specially made for them.

9. Samsung Galaxy S8

Samsung Galaxy S8

Mini verdict

The bezel-less large display is making it an iconic piece in the list of best smartphones from Samsung. In my opinion, the biometric scanner installation on the back of the phone was not a clever decision. There are also some issues with facial recognition features. But, these are not the deal breakers to keep you away from this phone as there are a lot of packed features and specs yet to make it standing with beauty.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Specifications

Release date: April 2017 | Weight: 155g | Dimensions: 148.9 x 68.1 x 8mm | OS: Android 7 | Screen size: 5.8-inch | Resolution: 1440 x 2960 | CPU: Exynos 8895 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | Battery: 3000mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 8MP

With
  • Awesome Camera Features
  • Elegant and Smart design
  • A nice widescreen
  • Huge power with a long battery timing
Against
  • Finger Print scanner issues
  • Facial recognition sensor is not working properly

Overview

When I was picking up this to review with the best smartphones, it took me back in the days when it was first launched. It was quite a special one and had value because of the bezel-less widescreen and great battery life. If we compare smartphones for expenses this one stands in the line for the best budget smartphone.

It has a larger screen as compared to the iPhone 8 Plus. The sharpness and colorful reproduction display of the screen are cool. With the arrival of Galaxy S9, this one went back a step because of the entry of the new smartphone. But it is still on the market with some good reputation due to its outstanding performance.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Design And Screen

Some of the hard efforts invested by Samsung to bring up these best smartphones with elegant design ever. This one is a good looking phone in the market today even some more came up with good design and screen. But it is still on the top in its looks and gestures. It has an elegant design and also the headphones jack is there to serve you with sound effects.

In the list of best smartphones, this one seems to be brought back from the future. The combination of crafted specs with features is making it a brilliant handset. Let us compare smartphones from the same brand previously released with this one. You would find innovative improvements in this one as compared to S5 or S6.

A really nice and beautifully curved screen as it was on S7 Edge with curved glass. Some rich color reproduction with an amazing pack of features to give you a rich visionary display. The edge panel is purely customizable for your favorite links to the contacts, apps or others. Now do not be worried about some touches on edge screen that would disturb you. We did not find any disturbance from the extra tapping on the edges.

The Hard Aluminum Frame

It was really popular among the folks that if accidentally you lost your hand grip on the phone and touched the hard surface of the ground, you would plan to purchase a new one. Why? Because you would have lost your S8. But it is not true as during our tests by mistake or you can say human error, the phone falls on the hard surface and survived. After a mistake, we tested it for more surety and it passed the test.

Samsung Galaxy S8 User Interface

The great app drawer with a swipe to open features is amazingly cool. The most powerful smartphone among the best smartphones available on the market today. The old tradition is now buried and is past, with bringing up some powerful upgrades to the interface by Samsung. I would mention that some of you might not found the new Touch Wizard a friendly one. But it is not a deal-breaker as there are a lot of other worthy things you cannot leverage.

A lot of improvements brought forward by making some real and hard efforts to upgrade the interface. The Bixby support is a bit weak at the back that is the reason we are discussing the interface. Otherwise, if the Bixby support was sound on these best smartphones, you wouldn’t mention the interface ever in S8.

When it first released, Nougat 8 was running as an operating system on this phone. With the updates in Android and intro of Oreo, most of the Bixby issues fixed on Galaxy S8. The software updates on this smartphone are giving you all the functions and features you would have on S9.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Camera

Samsung is making every effort to bring up high-quality competitive devices in the market. However, the company did not invest in the camera of this smartphone. These best smartphones are coming without any upgrades on the camera specs. The 12 MP camera on the rare and some upgraded sensors on the front are cool. It performed well in the low light test as well.

Once again the best one on the list of best smartphones. The camera is still the superb one with a sharp and natural view capturing capabilities. Samsung Galaxy 8 did not come with new upgrades on the camera specs but some of the features are new and supported it well. The best android phone with the rich reproductive color pictures capturing capacity.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Battery Life

A superb battery onboard on this beautiful sleek design phone. The battery is built-in and un-detachable as it comes packed in the chassis. It would give you a daytime of power to keep your phone alive as tested normally for day to day tasks with some normal apps.

The three-layer power-saving modes are spectacular awesome to save the power as per your needs and preferences. You would have both the options to charge it wirelessly and fast charging. There is a 3000mAh battery installed on this smartphone. If you are thinking that the battery capacity is equal to some of the predecessors like Note 7, and it would not be enough to power up your phone. At this point, you are wrong. The reason is Samsung apps and optimization features would allow you to save your phone’s battery power for a hard time.

Bottom Line

The best smartphones are not rare to find in this competitive era. If you are looking for the best budget smartphone from the list. You would love to have this one because it would not hurt your pocket or bank account. You would have comparatively the best smartphone at a controlled expense. The extra brightness is great when you are outdoor and it is a beautiful sunny day. Where normally, some other smartphones become dim and hardly see the screen content in the brighter light of the sun. Overall a real learning experience on the battery saving modes to enhance the capacities of long battery life with powerful features.

10. LG V30 Power & Performance Combination

LG V30 Power

Mini verdict

The most dedicated Quad DAC inside is making it a sonic performer in the market today. A powerfully fast and glowing result of camera phone out there among the best smartphones from LG. It got the most powerful processor and a sleek design with attractions to catch your eyes.

LG V30 Specifications

Release date: September 2017 | Weight: 158g | Dimensions: 151.7 x 75.4 x 7.3mm | OS: Android 7 | Screen size: 6.0-inch | Resolution: 1440 x 2880 | CPU: Snapdragon 835 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64/128GB | Battery: 3300mAh | Rear camera: 16MP+16MP | Front camera: 5MP

With
  • Premium design smartphone
  • A pack of features
  • Awesome camera upgrades
  • Glowing OLED display
Against
  • Not launched with Android Oreo
  • It would hurt your bank account
  • Low light image capturing is not market-leading

Overview

A confident step forward in the best smartphones by LG in its flagship devices. The most features packed design yet from LG in the market today. If we compare smartphones and set a target to measures the performance of the LG V30 with others. The V30 would win the race in the production because of its real features blast. If we see in competitive manners, V30 is beating V20 and some other model from the company. LG’s true flagship with some real advanced improvements is not competing for the market.

LG V30 Design

Well, friends, every smartphone has its taste and looking gestures and it is their standard to keep it the same. LG over time improved and redesigned its phones when they started to launch smartphones a few years back. This one the list of best smartphones has an understated design that keeps the screen stand out. When I picked it up I felt it very lightweight.

The waterproofing and military-grade toughness are the most outclass insertion of features on this one. Thanks, LG for this release to give relief over V20 and if we compare smartphones you would find much more upgrades LG made ever. You would probably found some of the resemblances from the G6, it seems LG evolved the design to present a new smartphone.

LG’s Full Vision 18:9 aspect ratio tech is on display here and you know guys the 6 inches long OLED display is the most attractive one. The megapixel rate reached 2,880 x 1,440 but you would notice some of the bezels still need to be removed from the front face. LG V30 defined the question of what is a smartphone is real manners.

If we compare smartphones like Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with V30 the LG has increased the screen size a bit from Note 8. The exact dimensions increased are half an inch when we measure it in our lab to find out the exact difference.

LG V30 Edge Features

You most probably heard about the second screen on V30 but you won’t be able to find it easily. The floating bar inserted into the smartphone is working like a second screen. Or in simple words when we talk about S8 or S9 the edge panel with your favorites is a floating bar on V30. The V30 changes that staple hardware feature into a software touch and this is called a floating bar.

The floating bar is always there to enable you in customizing your stuff. You can create a menu of your own with your favorite links and apps. It is purely your interest and priority what you want to bring forth it would do it as per your concern. The quick menu, note-taking and capturing images or GIFs on the screen are now on the second screen.

LG V30 Battery Life

There is a 3300mAh battery installed on the phone with the capacity of being alive for one day. The waterproofing features put the battery in seals inside the phone chassis. The longstanding battery with some cool and awesome upgrades is a welcome part of V30. With this one on every sort of use, you would find it a longstanding battery that goes on for a whole day and a half night. You would feel like you have some extra battery backup on the phone. Though the battery is sealed inside the chassis for the insertion of waterproofing features, LG still needs to ensure the capacity.

I made it fully charged and watched a movie on the phone. You know guys after 87 minutes long nonstop play of movie the battery charging came to 88% from 100. The phone battery is easily making a full day with all types of tasks even with hardcore tasks. In charging tests it made up to 30% from zero in only 15 minutes and fully charged in less than two hours.

LG V30 Camera

LG put all its hard efforts into this smartphone especially the full-packed features camera. The awesome perks to mention are the focus point photography and the cine-video color grading. If we see at the low light capturing results. The camera proved to give a great result but frankly speaking, it is not a superb one.

The V30 has some superb upgrades in software and hardware to stand out with the best smartphone camera as compared to all mobile smartphone cameras from LG. The insertion of dual-lens on this camera is making it more powerful and enable it with accurate focus capabilities.

An impressive f/1.6 boast to capture a scene’s natural view. LG V30 is coming in 16-megapixel rear-facing camera, the features making it enables it to compete with big giants. But when it comes to the low light photography it is beatable in this feature as LG did not invest its efforts to bring it forward. One thing is really important to mention about the illumination of the dark scenes.

Overall, the camera is providing a good balance contrast and colors in low light photography. The lens is covered with glass, not like the other which are protected by a plastic cover. The small 5-megapixel camera on the front is a disappointed one with selfies. During the tests, we found that the results are a blur and not quite clear.

Bottom Line

LG took so long to release the V30 after its announcement, but it is a brilliant addition to the world of smartphones. You would find it worthy as compare to other ones like V20 and G6. The company took full advantage of the learnings in the release of predecessors and made V30 a confidently superb smartphone in the line of best smartphones. You would realize the fact that LG is not taking the feedback for granted and it improved the phone with the inclusion of heavy features. The only concern I have with this phone is the rear camera with low light photography experience is not up to the mark.
