Top Smartphones of 2019 at PB Tech

Posted in Articles on 15/1/2019

The smartphone industry is constantly growing with a range of companies creating new innovative products for us to experience. PB Tech has got your back with making your next smartphone choice as we break down our Top 6 phones of 2019, with also a side mention of 2 cheaper smartphones for those with a tight budget.

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.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Smartphone at PB Tech

When you hear about the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, you most likely think about the triple camera which has made Huawei a design leader for this speciality. The Mate 20 Pro features 3 cameras on the back including a 40MP camera, 20MP ultra-wide camera and a telephoto 8MP with f/2.4 aperture. This gives the user a highly versatile camera system, that lets you shoot everything from macro details to long-distance, zoomed-in scenery.

Another very attractive feature is the much-improved 4,200mAh battery, which has enough juice to keep you going the whole day and some. The Mate 20 Pro charges incredibly fast, with speeds of going zero to 70% in roughly 30 minutes. Another sweet feature to keep your friend’s smartphones going throughout the day, is the reverse wireless charging element, which allows users to charge other smartphones wirelessly.

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.
