The year 2019 has been an emotion-packed year with all kinds of excitement and disappointment in terms of mobile phone technology. We have seen some phones that got us all pumped up like the Huawei foldable phone. While some have failed to live up to the high expectation of the consumers. We thought it would be a wonderful idea to bring the year 2019 under review and pick out the best smartphones 2019 gave to us.
We will be considering the best across three categories, which are the entry-level, mid-range, and flagship phones that were released into the smartphone market.
Xiaomi Redmi 8
Xiaomi has been dominating the entry-level landscape with its Redmi series. The latest addition to its catalog the Redmi 8 is no different either.
Additionally, the phone has an 18W quick charging feature should you run your battery down. This is not a phone that will give you total gaming experience despite its 3/4GB RAM. You probably won’t be able to enjoy high-end business solutions on the phone such as SuiteCRM Mobile App by Fynsis SuiteCRM Solution Partner like SuiteCRM Mobile App by Fynsis SuiteCRM Solution Partner . Although the smartphone is flag entry-level, don’t be misled into thinking it is another low-end budget phone. The phone feature a premium-looking design backed by an effective Snapdragon 439 processor that runs on a 5,000mAh battery.
An entry-level low budget phone from Huawei that seems like a good bargain with amazing design and features. The instantly noticeable features about the phone are its 6.59-inch screen and a pop-up front camera. The camera takes quite good pictures too, performing admirably in low-light conditions. This is a power-packed phone even thou it is entry-level, running on a Kirin 710F octa-core processor backed efficiently by a 6GB RAM as well as 128GB internal memory.
This means you can play all the games you love and run those high-end applications on the phone efficiently. All that you can do on its 4,000mAh battery, which should conveniently last a day of usage. One thing I will tell you is that you can easily mistake the phone for a flagship or mid-range phone.
Samsung Galaxy A20
Wait! You may probably be wondering what a phone company that more often associated with flagship phones doing at the lower end of the spectrum. Well, actually Samsung has quite a number of entry-level phones. Samsung also has its own share of budget phones and one of them is the Galaxy A20.
Although frankly, Samsung budget phones are the “what you pay is what you get types” rarely having features associated with high-end phones. However, that is not true with the Galaxy A20, which gives you some features normally built into higher price phones.
Some of the features you will get is the more expensive 6.4-inch AMOLED display screen along with an 8-MP selfie camera and a dual 13-MP and 5-MP camera at the back. As with all budget phones, you get to trade performance for lower prices, which is exactly what happened with A20.
Samsung Galaxy A50
Well, what do we have here? If that is not another Samsung smartphone? Yes, it is. We have talked about the lower budget Galaxy A20. The A50 can effectively be called the more expensive sibling with more features of course. Again, the Galaxy A50 features an AMOLED just like its cousin A20 albeit with an even better camera. Featuring a triple rear camera of 25-MP, 8-MP, and 5-MP along with a 25-MP selfie camera.
These are features and more like the in-screen fingerprint scanner are what you will find on high-end phones. The more powerful Samsung Exynos 9610 processor and 4GB RAM will probably make the phone a good fit for a wide range of applications. For example, business-driven CRM applications like Mobile CRM App for SuiteCRM from Fynsis is the latest business developments and the perfect platform for team collaboration.
Xiaomi Mi 9T
This mid-range phone from Xiaomi is a darling with some amazing features to it. The Mi 9T could easily pass for a flagship category. However, in the absence of the wireless charging and flagship processor found in the standard Mi 9, we will have to stick the phone in the mid-range category.
Boasting a larger 4,000mAh battery, the Mi 9T can go longer than some of its counterparts. The triple-lens 48-MP camera can take awesome pictures too and a 20-MP pop-up selfie camera will give you an amazing self-portrait. A 6.38-inch HD AMOLED display screen will give you a rich display with vibrant colors. The phone overall performance is not bad either with 6GB RAM there is plenty of RAM for multitasking.
Honor View 20
Talk of a phone with flagship qualities aimed at the mid-range market, that is exactly what Huawei has done here with the Honor View 20. Sporting the same processor found in the Huawei Mate 20-the Kirin 980 processor. This is a phone with big RAM and ROM coming in two variants 6 and 8GB RAM as well as 128 and 256 GB space. This is good for RAM consuming applications and there is a large 4,000mAh battery to support that. Don’t forget, the camera is crisp too with a dual rear 48MP and 3D camera as well as a front 25MP camera.
Similarly, you can find more mid-range phones that come out in 2019 .
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series
Finally, we have reach where Samsung will feel at home, the Flagship phones. Samsung is popularly known for targeting the high-end market. The company Galaxy Note 10 series is aimed just for that. Built for performance, which is reflected in its premium Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. This is further boosted by the use of huge RAMs for the Note 10 phones; the least RAM is 8GB.
The camera is not playing around either with the Note 10 sporting triple-lens while the Note 10+ offers an additional fourth lens. The Note 10s will comfortably run almost any app you throw at them including the business apps like Fynsis Employee Timesheet Solution on SuiteCRM Mobile APP. This is further boosted by the use of huge RAMs for the Note 10 phones; the least RAM is 8GB.
iPhone 11 series
Will the list ever be complete without mentioning iPhone devices? I guess not. The iPhone 11 series is the complete package among flagship phones. Camera, processor, battery, and display are all top-notch.
You can call it a much better improvement on the iPhone XR with so many inclusions. That includes 12MP rear cameras, iOS 13, IP68 waterproofing for iPhone 11 Pro, among other amazing features.
OnePlus 7 Pro / 7T Pro
Big Camera, better performance, and crisp display, the OnePlus 7 Pro and 7T Pro offer a lot to be desired. Both phones have a 90Hz refresh rate as well as a pop-up selfie camera with a triple-lens rear camera. It is amazingly fast and why won’t it be with the least RAM being 6GB in 7 Pro and reaching 12GB. The 7T Pro has 8GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 855 Plus chip.
However, there are still no wireless charging and waterproof rating like most flagship phones you will find in the market now.
What could 2020 bring?
Well, we could finally see 5G phones become the mainstay in the smartphone market as the 5G network gradually takes over. It might also be time to say bye to the notch as manufacturers are showing us ways to build phones without them. Of course, you are likely to see more phones with breathtaking specs, 2019 already gave us foldable phones. Who knows, 2020 could see the foldable devices become mainstream as well as the realization of augmented-reality accessories.
The year 2020 already got us excited and you should be too.
