Low-priced with lots of smartphones for your attention, choosing the best phone isn’t easy. Spotecno reviews dozens of new phones each year, and we evaluate them in our laboratories and in the real world by design, functionality, performance, camera quality, and battery life.

We also provide face-to-face view among flagship phones to decide our top smartphone. But not everyone has the budget for the flagship, so we also recommend for cheaper phones.

If you want to shop now, choose Android or iOS, a big-screen phone, or a small phone or want to save money with an old phone, there is something for everyone in our top phone list.

iPhone 11 Pro Max now is the best phone overall today, which offers a gorgeous photosystem and a superb 6.5-inch OLED display. Android fans will prefer the Galaxy S10 Plus, but you should probably wait because the Galaxy S20 will be released on February 11. Those with a tight budget should check the regular iPhone 11, OnePlus 7T, or – Pixel 3a if you want something less than $ 400.

These are just a few of the phones we recommend. Check out the best phones with iOS and Android below.

1. iPhone 11 Pro Max

Display Size (Pixels): 6.5-inch OLED (2,688 x 1,242 pixels)
Cameras (Back / Front): / Triple 12MP / 12 MP
Storage : 64GB, 256GB, 512GB
CPU: A13 Bionic
RAM: Unknown
Weight: 7.97 ounces
Battery Life (Hrs:Mins): 11:44

The iPhone par perfection is also the best phone you can buy during the period. The iPhone 11 Pro Max has outperformed the Android contest to be the best camera phone, thanks to a new Night Mode and a much more versatile ultra-wide lens for much better photos in low-light conditions. In addition, Advanced Smart HDR gives you higher quality portraits. Apple has also improved video quality with extended dynamic range and smooth cinematic stabilization.

The iPhone 11 Pro Max offers the fastest processor ever, with the A13 Bionic chip, a more strong design, and a 6.5-inch OLED display bright enough to foul other phones. I would like Apple to offer more than 64 GB of storage, but once you have an almost perfect smartphone with nearly 12 hours of battery life, fast charging, and more immersive sound.

2. Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus

Display Size (Pixels): 6.4-inch OLED (3040 x 1440)
CPU: Snapdragon 855
Weight: 6.2 ounces
Storage: 128GB, 512GB, 1TB
RAM: 8GB, 12GB
Cameras (Back / Front): 16-MP (f/2.2), 12-MP dual-pixel (f/1.5, f/2.4), 12-MP telephoto (f/2.4)/ 10-MP, 8-MP depth sensing
Battery Life (Hrs:Mins): 12:35

Galaxy S10 Plus is the best phone for those who prefer Android and want a large and interesting display. The 6.4 inch OLED screen is gorgeous, and the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor allows you to unlock the device quickly. The Galaxy S10 Plus also offers an epic 12.5-hour battery life, and its wireless PowerShare feature allows you to charge other phones just by placing them on the back.

The Snapdragon 855 chipset, which powers the Samsung phone, also offers fast performance. The S10 Plus’s three rear cameras produce great photos, especially the ultra-wide-angle lens.

It is deserving noting that Samsung has launched the Galaxy S10 Lite, which is even larger than the S10 Plus, with a 6.7-inch screen and 4,500 mAh battery with a larger capacity. Just know you will get a cheaper plastic design and weaker CPUs and cameras. Some might want to wait for the Galaxy S20 and the noisy 108MP camera, but the Galaxy S10 Plus is currently the best smartphone for Android fans.

3. iPhone 11

Display Size (Pixels): 6.1-inch LCD (1,792 x 828 pixels)
CPU: A13 Bionic
Weight: 6.84 ounces
Storage: 64GB, 128GB, 256GB
RAM: Unknown
Cameras (Back / Front): 2 12MP / 12MP
Battery Life (Hrs:Mins): 11:20

The best phone for people who don’t want to spend a pack, the iPhone 11 has two killer cameras and a lower price than the iPhone 11 Pro. For a reasonable amount of $ 699, the iPhone 11 has a new ultra-wide lens that adapts to multiple subjects or scenes with low light conditions and a 120-degree field of view thanks to its night mode. Selfies get a severe update with the 12 MP camera, which automatically switches to a broader perspective when putting the phone in landscape mode. The 6.1-inch LCD screen is not exceptional OLED, and it is colorful and bright. The blinding Aic Bionic processor, long battery life, and six colors of your choice strengthen the iPhone 11 as the winner.

4. Galaxy Note 10 Plus

Display Size (Pixels): 6.8-inch OLED (3040 x 1440)
RAM: 12GB
CPU: Snapdragon 855
Storage: 256GB, 512GB
Weight: 7.1 ounces
Battery Life (Hrs:Mins): 11:46
Cameras (Back / Front): 16-MP ultra wide (f/2.2), 12-MP wide (f/1.5, f/2.4), 12-MP telephoto (f/2.1), time-of-flight VGA / 10 MP

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus is the best phone if you want the largest screen possible. This flagship has a huge 6.8-inch OLED display that is truly immersive, and now you can do more with the S Pen, including Air gestures, and turn your handwriting into text. During our battery test, the phablet lasted almost 12 hours and quickly recharged, reaching 65% in 30 minutes. Note 10 Plus’s four rear cameras take sharp photos, and Samsung added live focus effects to videos so you can get the bokeh effect with your clips. However, the quality of the photos is not the best in the category for us; Pixel 4 has an advantage among Android phones.

You will soon have a cheaper alternative to the Note 10 on the Galaxy Note 10 Lite with a large 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display, a headphone jack, a triple camera array, and a large 4,500 mAh battery. But if you need a phablet’s best performance and battery, the Note 10 Plus is still worth the reward.

5. iPhone XR

Display Size (Pixels): 6.1-inch LCD (1792 x 828)
CPU: A12 Bionic
Weight: 6.8 ounces
RAM: N/A
Storage: 64GB, 128GB, 256GB
Battery Life (Hrs:Mins): 11:26
Cameras (Back / Front): 12-MP / 7-MP

The iPhone XR is a real bargain as the price drops to $ 599 and offers everything you want from one of the best phones. This includes a bright and colorful 6.1-inch LCD screen, a fast processor in the A12 Bionic, and excellent camera quality. No, the $ 699 iPhone 11 doesn’t have two rear shooters, but otherwise, this phone is top-notch in every way. Since the iPhone XR takes 11 hours and 28 minutes in our web browsing battery test, the best part is battery life.

6. Google Pixel 4 XL

Display Size (Pixels): 6.3-inch AMOLED (3040 x 1440)
RAM: 4GB
CPU: Snapdragon 855
Storage: 64GB, 128GB
Battery Life (Hrs:Mins): 9:42
Cameras (Back / Front): 12.2-MP main (f/1.7); 16-MP telephoto (f/2.4) / 8-MP (f/2.0)
Weight: 6.8 ounces

If you want the best Android camera phone, Pixel 4 XL is an excellent choice. It offers a telephoto lens with a 2x optical zoom. Combine with Google’s Super Resolution to get clear and detailed photos, even with 8x hybrid zoom. There’s also double exposure control to adjust brightness and shadows, artificial intelligence-based white balance for more precise colors, and an improved low-light night mode that can capture clear images of the night sky. The $ 900 Pixel 4 XL is the model to be obtained because its larger battery lasts longer than the $ 798 Pixel 4. We want the 6.4-inch screen to be brighter.

7. Google Pixel 3a

Display Size (Pixels): 5.6-inch OLED (2280 x 1080)

Google is back in the low-cost smartphone lineup with a new range of “A” Pixel devices. The most beneficial Android phone for those on a budget is $ 399 Pixel 3a. You will enjoy beautiful shots in low light conditions and truly impressive portrait effects inspired by computational photography. Of course, you get a less powerful processor and less shiny materials than the more expensive flagship phones. But Google’s cheaper phone lasts longer, even on a charge, resisting for almost 12 hours on our battery test. That why Pixel 3a very affordable. The best part? You can often find Pixel 3 on sale for less than $ 350, so pay at the comparison shop.
