Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pros

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is more or less the pinnacle of Samsung’s mobile output year-after-year. Launching a few months after the Galaxy S release, its Galaxy Note range has gone on to become the company’s unofficial flagship phone. And with good reason too.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is, perhaps, the best overall Android phone on the market right now – from design to overall performance and specs. Nothing else can really match Samsung’s Note 10 range. It’s a stunning looking phone with a great camera and one of the best OLED panels in the business.

On top of this, you have excellent software, a super-useful stylus in the form of the ever-evolving S-Pen, and bleeding-edge specs that drive the performance of the phone off into the stratosphere. I like the Galaxy S10, it’s a great phone, but the Galaxy Note 10 is like an RS version (if you know your cars, specifically Audi ones). And that, for me, makes this phone very special.

If you want the absolute best of the best, and you don’t mind paying for it, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 is just about as good as it gets right now in the Android kingdom.

#2) OnePlus 7 Pro – A True iPhone 11 Pro Max KILLER

#1 – OnePlus 7 Pro
  • Stunning 6.6 90Hz OLED Display – One of The Best Panels In The Business Right Now
  • 6.67 inches, 3120X1440 pixels QHD+ AMOLED Display, 90Hz refresh rate, HDR 10+. In-display fingerprint sensor - Simply touch the screen to unlock your device in just 0.21 seconds.
  • Triple camera lens - 48MP Main, 16MP Ultra Wide Angle, 8MP 3X Telephoto, Hidden away Pop-up front camera lens.
  • Masses of Performance, Thanks To Its 6GB of RAM And Snapdragon 855 CPU
  • 4000mAh Battery Delivers Incredible Battery Life

OnePlus 7 Pro Pros

OnePlus makes very good phones. And it sells them for about 40-50% less than the cost of an iPhone. This is the #1 reason why millions of users (iPhone ones included) have switched over to OnePlus in recent years.

The OnePlus 7 Pro is an utter monster of a phone. It has a huge 6.6in OLED display, 6GB of RAM, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 CPU, and a triple 48MP camera on the rear that is one of the best in the business.

Chuck in blazingly fast performance, killer good-looks, and it is easy to see why the OnePlus 7 Pro tops our list of the best Android phones money can buy right now. If you like value for money, performance, good looks, and beautiful software, as well as a truly EPIC camera, this is the one to go for.

#3) Pixel 3a – Insane Value For Money

#2 – Google Pixel 3a
  • One of The Best & Cheapest Android Phones on The Market – And It’s 100% Made By Google
  • Save every photo with free, unlimited storage at high quality through Google photos
  • Gets Android Updates As Soon As They’re Available – Will Be Supported By Google Until At Least 2023
  • Fast Charging battery delivers up to 7 hours of use with just a 15 minute charge
  • You Can Pick Up The Pixel 3a For $399.99, Which Makes It One of The Best Value Android Phones on The Planet. Period.

Pixel 3a Pros

A slightly cheaper version of Google’s Pixel 3 handset, the Pixel 3a has a plastic body and weaker internal tech, but retains the amazing camera talents of the original.

It’s no exaggeration to say that this is one of the best camera phones money can buy right now; not only does it snap superlative shots in all conditions, it has one of the most impressive low-light shooting modes we’ve seen on any smartphone – and it costs less than half the price of most Android flagships.

If you want premium features but don’t want to break the bank, then this is a solid choice – the lack of water resistance and wireless charging are the only real downsides.

#4) Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus – King of the Hill

#3 – Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
  • Beautiful, Futuristic Design – The Galaxy S10 Plus Looks & Feels Like A Phone From The Future
  • Ultrasonic in display fingerprint ID protects and unlocks with the first touch
  • Bleeding-Edge Technology – From The CPU To The Camera, Everything Inside The Galaxy S10 is Built For Monumental Performance
  • Insane Battery Life – Good For A Couple of Days Between Charges (With Normal-To-Low Usage)
  • The Galaxy S10 Plus is Expensive, But The Phone is Essentially An iPhone 11 Pro Max Killer. If You Want The Best And Price is No Concern, The Galaxy S10 Plus is Just About As Good As It Gets…

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Pros

Samsung’s phones are always at the front of the pack each year and 2019 is no exception; the Galaxy S10 is a true world-leader when it comes to smartphone tech and design. The screen uses a ‘hole-punch’ design which means there’s no massive bezel, and the phone is capable of charging other devices, like phones and wireless headphones.

The four-camera setup on the back of the S10 Plus offers astonishingly decent photos, while the cutting-edge Snapdragon 855 chipset keeps things ticking over nicely. All of this is wrapped up in a gorgeous design that combines glass with metal to nice effect. The only downside is that the Galaxy S10 Plus is really quite expensive.

#5) Huawei P30 Pro

Huawei P30 128GB+6GB RAM (ELE-L29) 6.1″ LTE Factory Unlocked GSM Smartphone (International Version) (Black)
  • Stunning Camera Performance Via Its 40MP Main Camera, Ultra-Wide-Angle 20MP Unit And 8MP Lossless Zoom Telephoto Lens. It Wipes The Floor With Both The iPhone 11 Pro Max & Pixel 4 XL In This Context
  • 6.1 inches 1080 x 2340 pixels, 19.5:9 ratio (~422 ppi density) - IP53 dust and splash protection - Android 9.0 + EMUI 9.0
  • 128GB + 6GB RAM - NM (Nano Memory), up to 256GB (uses SIM 2) - HiSilicon Kirin 980 Octa-core 2.6GhZ - Non-removable Li-Po 3650 mAh battery
  • Market-Leading Performance Thanks To Its INSANELY Powerful Kirin CPU Which is Backed Up By 8GB of RAM
  • The P30 Pro Retails For Around 40% Less Than Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro Max and Samsung’s Galaxy S10 Plus

Huawei P30 Pro Pros

The Huawei P30 Pro is fast becoming one of the most popular phones of 2019. And the reason? It packs in one of the best cameras we’ve ever seen packed inside a phone. It’s a triple lens setup that features a 40MP main camera alongside an ultra-wide-angle 20MP unit and an 8MP telephoto lens that can handle lossless zoom over hundreds of yards.

Combined, they produce market-leading performance. The Huawei P30 Pro’s camera is better than the iPhone 11 Pro Max’s. It’s better than the Google Pixel 4’s too, so if you’re after a phone that is a market-leader with respect to imaging, the Huawei P30 Pro is the one you should be looking at…

But it’s not just a brilliant camera phone. The Huawei P30 Pro also packs in some of the best performance you’re likely to see from an Android phone in 2019/20. It runs Huawei’s immensely powerful Kirin CPU, features 8GB of RAM, and comes with 128GB of storage as standard. This level of spec makes short work of everything – from web browsing to editing images and video.

Bottom line? The Huawei P30 Pro is easily one of the best Android phones money can buy right now – for imaging, for design, for performance. For everything, basically. Oh, and it’s A LOT cheaper than the iPhone 11 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.

In a world of $1000+ phones, finding a top Android phone for less than $500 might seem like a challenge. But right now, you actually have a lot of really good options…

Best Android Phones Under $500 (Our #1 Picks)

#1) Google Pixel 3 XL

#1 – Google Pixel 3 XL
  • Despite Being Replaced By The Google Pixel 4 XL, The 3 XL is Still One of The Best Android Phones Around Right Now
  • Amazing Camera, One of The Best On Market (Even Nowadays, A Year After Its Initial Release)

If you want the best possible Android experience, consistent and timely updates, and a fantastic camera, then the Google Pixel 3 XL is very hard to beat right now. Retailing for just $529, the Google Pixel 3 XL is the cheapest “flagship” Pixel phone you can buy right now. And in my opinion, it is a better option than the overpriced Pixel 4 XL.

I’ve been using the Pixel 3 XL ever since it first launched, earlier in 2018. I love the size of it, I love the software, and, for the asking price and specs inside, I think it is just about the best value Android phone money can buy right now.

If you want a Samsung phone, but you don’t want to pay Galaxy S10/Galaxy Note 10 money, then the Samsung Galaxy A70 is worth a look. The Galaxy A70 features a triple-lens camera on the rear, a beautiful, expansive AMOLED panel, and packs in some of the best battery life of any phone on this list.

Inside you have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 675 CPU backed up by 6GB of RAM and this combination will make short work of everything from GPU-intensive games to image and video editing. In fact, it is one of the best performing mid-range Android phones around right now.

But the best thing about the Samsung Galaxy A70 is its price; you can pick one up for less than $400 right now. And that, combined with its good looks, excellent performance, and totally BADASS camera make it one of the #1 Android phones you can buy right now for under $500…

#4) Xiaomi Mi 9

  • It Looks Like A $1000 Phone; All-Display Front & Robust Design Make For An Amazing User Experience
  • 64GB flash storage + 6GB RAM - Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 flagship processor, Octa-core processor, up to 2.84 GHz - Android 9.0 (Pie); MIUI 10 - Improved In-screen Fingerprint Sensor - Non-removable Li-Po 3300 mAh battery

Xiaomi cut its teeth in China making high-end, flagship-grade Android phones and then selling them for next to nothing online and in its stores. It grew rapidly during the past several years and the company has now ventured outside its native China into the US and UK markets. And its latest, the Xiaomi Mi 9 is one hell of an Android phone…

The Xiaomi Mi 9 looks like a flagship phone, it has flagship-grade specs and hardware. The imaging performance is brilliant. And if that wasn’t enough it packs in a stunning 6.39in QHD AMOLED panel, 6GB of RAM, and comes with either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage as standard.

There are many things to love about the Xiaomi Mi 9; its price, its triple-lens camera, it’s face-melting performance. But the key thing to remember is this: in terms of specs, the Xiaomi Mi 9 is more than equal to the Galaxy S10 or Galaxy Note 10, only with this phone, you’ll be paying less than $500 to acquire it…

Best For Camera?

All the above options have great cameras, but, for me, I think it is the OnePlus 7 that serves up the best overall imaging performance. You have a 48MP sensor backed up by a 5MP sensor that takes care of depth (AKA that bokeh effect everybody loves).

The result? Stunningly realistic images. The OnePlus 6T was impressive in this context, but the OnePlus 7 takes things several steps further, adding in support for things like advanced depth-sensing via its secondary 5MP sensor. The resulting images look more life-like and engaging.

Best For Battery Life?

All the phones listed above have great battery life, but the best of the best is the Samsung Galaxy A70. And the reason is simple: it packs in a massive 4500mAh battery that’ll provide a solid 1.5 days’ worth of usage before requiring a top-up. If battery life is your chief concern, the Galaxy A70 is KING in this price bracket.

Best For Android Updates?

Even in 2019, Android updates for non-Google phones are patchy at best. And it doesn’t matter how much your phone cost; even expensive Android phones are sometimes late getting Android updates.

The best option for reliable, timely Android updates is, of course, the Google Pixel 3a – it’s cheap, it runs the purest version of Android of any phone on this list, and it will get Android 10 and beyond as soon as they’re released by Google.

Things To Keep In Mind…

The phones listed above are solid options. But they all do certain things differently, which you should keep in mind before buying one. The OnePlus 7, for me, is probably the best overall option for specs and performance, but it isn’t as good as the Pixel 3a for things like timely Android updates.

Conversely, the Samsung Galaxy A70 is brilliant for looks, camera technology, and battery life. But it isn’t quite as powerful as the OnePlus 7 or Xiaomi Mi 9, when it comes to processing performance, as it uses a less powerful CPU. And these are things you need to keep in mind. Here’s a quick breakdown:

  • Google Pixel 3a Incredible value for money; instant Android updates as soon as they’re ready; solid performance; great camera; simple UX; no bloatware; a headphone jack; perfect phone for anyone that wants something simple and powerful that runs Android.
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10 – This is probably the best Android phone on the planet right now for overall performance, looks, and general awesomeness. It’s pricey, but the attention to detail that has gone into designing and creating this phone, as well as its specs, performance, and camera, make its lofty price tag understandable. It wipes the floor with everything, including Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro Max.
  • OnePlus 7 Probably the best value “flagship” phone on the planet; blisteringly fast performance; great design; an advanced camera that captures amazing pictures; great battery life; iPhone XS Max-grade performance for half the price.
  • Samsung Galaxy A70 Good-looking design; insane battery life.
  • Xiaomi Mi 9 Beautiful design; expansive AMOLED display; big battery life; excellent performance; high-end processing performance; tons of internal storage.
