The Samsung S10 has proven itself to be a very popular Smartphone indeed, and with three versions available now there's sure to be a great one for you! 

The three new smartphones in the Galaxy S10 range are named the S10, S10+ and S10e, all have beautiful screens, expandable storage via a MicroSD card slot and a headphone jack should you need it, but there are some really neat features like the ability to charge other devices using the Qi wireless charging tech inside. The S10 and S10+ have the most in common, with the plus being a bit larger in the hand. Both have the same processor, fast-charging /wireless charging features, same storage and RAM options, screen resolution and both have three cameras on the back along with a nice large battery capacity too.

The Huawei P30 Pro is an exceptional piece of hardware, with an unmatched camera system which includes a periscope lens, 40 MP sensing camera, 20 MP ultra-wide angle lens, and a Huawei TOF camera - giving you the freedom to capture your incredible moments, even at long range!

The new periscope telephoto lens allows more optical zooming capabilities to be tucked in a compact body without losing image quality. Together with the colour saturation provided by the 40 MP main camera, and stability of OIS, the SuperZoom Lens offers 10x hybrid zoom to see the never-before-seen with great resolution and rich detail. Additionally, it can bring the moon right before your eyes with up to 50x zoom. 

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Smartphone at PB Tech

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 proves once again that nothing is impossible and delivers a truly bezel-less screen with a twist (or rather, with a slide). This phone has achieved one of the highest screen-to-body ratios a smartphone can have right now. This means the dual-selfie camera, its LED flash, and the headphone jack are all on a mechanical slider. Because of this slider, you can fully enjoy the 6.39" Super AMOLED screen, while also having a bit of reminiscent fun for those who owned slide phones back in the day. The Mi Mix 3 comes with a total of four cameras, including a whopping 24MP main front-facing camera for all your selfie needs.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Smartphone at PB Tech

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has one of the smoothest Android experiences you’ll find today. This phone has one of the best display screens of any Android phone ever, which is supported by multiple tests conducted by DisplayMate who crowned this phone the best display of any mobile device ever. Not only did it break records for brightness and contrast, but DisplayMate also described the Note 9’s colour profile as “visually indistinguishable from perfect”.

The style S-Pen has also been further improved in the form of a low-power Bluetooth functionality. The pen can now work as a remote shutter for the phone’s camera, a song remote, and even a slide remote while giving a PowerPoint presentation.

LG G7 ThinQ Smartphone at PB Tech

Next up is the LG G7 ThinQ, which features a vibrant, colourful display that provides the user with a crisp and sharp experience for consuming media. The G7 ThinQ also has a brightness boost feature of 1,000 nits which is especially useful in direct sunlight, due to the amount of glare.

If you love your music loud but are worried about the quality through speakers and headphones, then the G7 ThinQ could be what you’re looking for. The smartphone features a quad DAC which provides higher quality sounds, less distortion, less noise, and better dynamic range and it’s a feature that users with high impedance headphones will greatly appreciate. The G7 ThinQ also provides an innovative boom box speaker for those who like it loud and emphatic. The smartphone implements a DTS:X 3D surround sound or virtual sound, which is designed to give a unique sound experience to users listening to music and watching videos/movies.OnePlus 6T Smartphone at PB Tech

The OnePlus 6T has an edge over other Android phones through the Oxygen OS, which has been one of the lightweight versions offering extra features with a fast, smooth and user-friendly experience. Oxygen OS is constantly updated to keep customers satisfied through improvements like Smart Boost, which takes advantage of extra RAM allowing users to open multiple apps much faster. If you are a gamer, the Oxygen OS also provides a gaming mode to help give an extra boost of performance when required.

OnePlus has partnered up with McLaren to bring us a special edition OnePlus 6T. The smartphone modelled after the McLaren MCL33 F1 Car has a large impact on its visual and aesthetic look, that features a black carbon fibre design with McLaren's signature and a Papaya orange colour around the rim.

iPhone XS Max Smartphone at PB Tech

The iPhone XS Max is Apples most recent creation which brings users an overall clean, crisp experience through the superb display, excellent performance and a capable camera. iOS is better than ever before, with new updates like Memoji, notification grouping and a screen time feature. The iPhone XS Max has eliminated the home button physically and through the software, but has still managed to get the gesture actions just right, which can also be quite fun to play around with on the large 6.5in display. The new XS Max camera allows better performance in poor light conditions through Smart HDR, which works by snapping multiple photos at three different exposures and combining them together to create the best possible looking photo.


Cheaper options (under $500):

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite Smartphone at PB Tech

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite provides great value for money, with a large 6.3in display that is almost edge-to-edge, and the bezels are small which provides a clean look. The Mi 8 Lite comes with a fast OS, with performance levels matching the Samsung Galaxy S7. The camera provides amazing quality for the price, including a 24MP front-facing camera and a dual camera for excellence and depth information.Huawei Nova 3i  Smartphone at PB Tech

Being even cheaper than the Mi 8 Lite, the Huawei Nova 3i provides an advanced camera, large display and an extraordinary Kirin 710 chipset. The Nova 3i features a large 6.3in Full View display, as well as having minimal bezels and a notch. The smartphone has a quad camera packed into it with AI-powered features through the 24MP and 16MP rear cameras. A new generation of hyper-fast mobile chip is incorporated through the Kirin 710 chip, which allows users to have improved signal and digital video processing.
