Shopping for best Android smartphones?? It’s easy to get swayed by a nice handset design or a really convincing salesperson at a retail store. Carriers might tempt you with an affordable 24-month payment plan. But before you make an ill-informed impulse buy, read up.
Today I will be showing a detailed list on the top 10 best android Smartphones you can buy in 2019… They’ll be based on prices, specs, camera, RAM, Screen size and best of all battery time.
Now, let’s get on to the list…
1. One Plus 7 Pro (Best Android Smartphone):
Price in USD: $669
Price in Naira: ₦240,840
There’s astonishingly little or no fault at all in the OnePlus 7 Pro. The display, camera, and core specs are essentially all best-in-class – or close enough to count – while the few shortcuts (wireless charging, an IP rating) are easily explained away by a price point – starting from 649 to 669- that still undercuts the closest comparable rivals by some way.
Let’s see some of its special features;
|Fingerprint Sensor Position||On-screen|
|Other Sensors||Light sensor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Compass, Gyroscope|
Yes, this device costs a bit more than you’re probably used to from OnePlus, but it delivers on enough of its promises to justify that price jump – and if you’re still not convinced, the regular OnePlus 7 is always there at the same price. OnePlus has been hitting for the last year or two.
In a year that’s already seen both Samsung and Huawei Mobile drop pretty phenomenal flagships, OnePlus has still managed to drop a device that might just be the best Android device in 2019.
2. Asus ZenFone 6:
Price in USD: $499
Price in Naira: ₦179,640
The ZenFone 6 offers a very attractive Flip Camera system that provides a high-end shooting experience on the rear and front, without compromising on screen real estate.
Images captured are very vibrant, and the ability to record at 4K@60fps with EIS is a super nice touch, too. It’s a versatile bit of kit, and more than a gimmick.
Beyond the camera setup, the ZenFone 6 is a stunning bit of kit; it has a curved rear that fits nicely into the palm of your hand, a glossy design and most importantly, a big 6.4in full-screen display free of bezels and notches.
And with a 5,000mAh battery that comfortably provides all-day usage, there’s not much to complain about – especially at a very cheap price tag.
3. Xiaomi Mi 9
Price in USD: $499
Price in Naira: ₦179,640
This phone is known for its insane speed, it’s insanely beautiful and offering the best value for money you’ll find in any Android Smartphone, anywhere. Mi 9 is well worth the upgrade from even the old Mi 8.
New is an in-display fingerprint sensor as standard, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855 processor, 20W wireless charging, a larger screen and a triple-lens camera that includes a massive 48Mp lens.
4. Google pixel 3A
Price in USD: $399
Price in Naira: ₦143,640
The Pixel 3A is $399, but it feels better than a lot of high-end $800 phones, including the standard Pixel 3. It has cameras that match almost any device out there, and Google included a special feature which is the “Night Sight mode”, which makes it possible to take night shots and selfies that actually look decent.
It also has a classy polycarbonate body, which is more durable than glass phones, and a headphone jack. It only has a disadvantage… It’s only Splash proof and not waterproof. The interface is speedy because it runs on a great new midrange Snapdragon processor, and it gets its monthly security updates and regular feature updates directly from Google.
5. Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
Price in USD: $800
Price in Naira: ₦288,000
On this list we have the word-popular Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus and it is one of the best Android phones you can get right now, packing the best of what Samsung has to offer.
It has a very large Super AMOLED 6.4-inch display with super colors, plus there’s a fingerprint scanner embedded in the display.
The battery life is a very big improvement over the S9 Plus, thanks to the larger 4,100mAh battery inside and you also get the Samsung’s new Wireless PowerShare, allowing you to wirelessly charge other devices on the rear of the handset.
The camera on the rear of the Galaxy S10 Plus are among the best on the market, offering more features, shooting modes and overall clarity.
6. Huawei P30 Pro
Price in USD: $1034
Price in Naira: ₦372,240.00
The Huawei P30 Pro is one of the best Android phones to buy when it comes to photography. Its 5x and 10x zoom capabilities are staggeringly good. It also performs super in low light areas.
For those who really want to get up close to their subject, the P30 Pro also offers a 50x digital zoom, and although quality is reduced it’s still impressive.
It has also got an in-display fingerprint scanner, premium design and wireless charging with the ability to wireless charge other devices from the back of the P30 Pro.
It’s a top Android phone and only narrowly misses out on top spot due to the Galaxy S10 Plus overall slicker and more rounded smartphone experience.
7. Xiaomi Redmi Note 7
Price in USD: $150
Price in Naira: ₦54,000
This Android phone stands out for its amazing Camera and it’s very cheap to get. The Redmi Note 7 is astounding value for money. The phone is weighed down a touch by Xiaomi’s own MIUI 10 software but beyond that, this is an impressively well-rounded phone. The Redmi’s extended Full HD+ IPS screen doesn’t disappoint either, offering great colour reproduction, good viewing angles and decent legibility outdoors.
8. One plus 6T
Price in USD: $580
Price in Naira: ₦208,800
Wow… OnePlus has really mastered the art of building sleek and very affordable phones that still manage to outperform their expensive counterparts in the Android space, and the OnePlus 6T is further proof of that.
The base model now starts with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage after OnePlus boosted the memory of this phone following the OnePlus 7 Pro launch. But the 6T still costs hundreds of dollars less than comparable phones from LG, Samsung and others. You also get a Snapdragon 845 chip, a stunning AMOLED display and in-screen fingerprint sensing. It has some luxuries, like wireless charging and water resistance.
9. Nokia 7.1
Price in USD: $288
Price in Naira: ₦103,680.00
Next on our list is the Nokia 7.1. This is one of the phones you need for under $350. But unlike most cheap phones, it isn’t underpowered or unimpressive from a design standpoint.
The Snapdragon 636 processor and 4GB of RAM inside the Nokia 7.1 are more than powerful enough to handle most apps and even some demanding games. It’s the only device in its class with an HDR-compliant display, and its aluminum and glass build is positively stunning.
One of the best features of the Nokia 7.1 is actually its software experience. Thanks to Android One, this budget handset is already running the latest version of Google’s mobile OS — and a stock installation at that, offering an experience on par with that of the Pixel family. The only disadvantage of the Nokia 7.1 is its relative inaccessibility on CDMA carriers like Verizon and Sprint.
10. Huawei mate 20 Pro
Price in USD: $860
Price in Naira: ₦309,600
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the last Android device on our list and it features an aluminium frame with a glass front and back. It has a stunning 6.39-inch QHD+ display with Gorilla Glass protection. It has a primary 40-megapixel camera, a 20-megapixel wide-angle sensor and a 8-megapixel telephoto sensor, which is a versatile combination. The built-in 4,200mAh delivers excellent battery life and also charges very quickly.
