Apple iPhone XS Max
Overall, this is the best recent smartphone you might want to buy. Though its upgrades are not much different from the iPhone XS, it offers you a larger canvas for watching video, split-screen view within certain apps and longer battery life. If you really want to spend a lot on a phone to use for a longer period of time, you should go for this, because, for the sum of $1,099, you get the fastest processor ever in a phone and a pleasurably large 6.5 inch OLED display, and a much better camera to use in low-lights.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
If you’re looking for the best android phone so far, Samsung’s Galaxy S tenth generation is the one – Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. While it might not offer the best nighttime and low-light shots, it has more standard features some of its counterparts are yet to meet up to. Unlike most androids which usually have a fingerprint sensor at the back, the Galaxy S10 Plus has an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor under its phenomenal AMOLED screen 6.4-inch display which lets you quickly unlock the device. It has 12-5-hour battery life and let you charge other devices wirelessly. With its three rear cameras, it produces some stellar photos that give Pixel 3’s camera a run for its money.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus costs $899.99 for all these features and more for the best total Android experience so far.
Huawei P30 Pro
When it comes to capturing photos, Huawei’s P30 Pro delivers outstandingly. Though it might not offer the best processor performance and screen resolution and doesn’t have a headphone jack for wired headphones, but with its four rear lenses, it takes astounding photos. With Huawei’s P30 Pro’s impressive camera skills, it knocks out other great camera phones such as Google’s Pixel 3 to be the number one smartphone for taking amazing photos, especially in low-lights. It offers a 5x optical zoom for capturing detailed images from far. It also has a superb battery life and a stunning design. But compared to the Pixel 3 and other great recent camera phones, the Huawei P30 Pro won’t come to the U.S due to some political entanglement. But as soon as you catch sight of it, don’t hesitate to get it if you want the best camera phone so far. You can get it on Amazon for $880.
One Plus 7 Pro
With One Plus’s new model, One Plus 7 pro costing $699 compared to other flagship phones with premium featurespremium features such as Samsung, Apple, and Google who now commands the $1,000 price tags, it has maintained its legacy of being the phone with the best flagship value to buy. For that price, the One Plus 7 Pro offers great features such as an expansive 6.67-inch display with a 90 Hz refresh rate. The One Plus 7 Pro is heavy though, and isn’t really acknowledged for water resistance and lacks charging and a headphone jack. But it is fast, has a neat pop-up camera, and takes fantastic photos with its triple rear cameras. These features and more make the One Plus 7 Pro the best of One Plus phones so far. And compared to its rivals, Samsung and iPhone, it costs a lot less making it the most affordable premium Android phone of 2019.

Apple iPhone XR
