The Realme GT is one of the best smartphones on the list, which is achieved thanks to its accessible price. With some mind-blowing features for a phone with this low price tag, it’s no wonder why so many people have chosen to buy one.

Why is it great?

Because it has a Snapdragon 888 processor, 65W wired charging, and a Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate.

50 MP Ultra-Wide Camera
Reading Mode
Night Mode
Vibrant Color Effect
Ultra-high Video Resolution
Where to buyOnePlus

The OnePlus 9 is far cheaper than the Pro model, but some would argue that it maintains the essence of its more expensive sibling, making it one of the finest Android phones.

It also keeps the Hasselblad brand (and the associated camera skills) and uses the same camera components as the OnePlus 9 Pro – minus the phone’s telephoto lens.

The OnePlus 9 offers the same power as the 9 Pro, and while its display is a step down it’s still fantastic — it’s a 6.55-inch FHD+ screen with a 120Hz refresh rate.

The battery charges fast (65W), and there’s an in-screen fingerprint scanner, as well as a glass back. The OnePlus 9 compromises on a plastic frame, but it is less obvious than a plastic rear, and you are unlikely to feel shortchanged by the phone.

Key Differentiators

  • 12+256 GB
  • Hasselblad camera for mobile
  • 2 years local warranty
  • Snapdragon 888
  • Warp Charge 65T

We know that Apple releases a much newer version than the iPhone 11, but hear us out!

With its new 12MP dual-camera system, you may shoot photos from wide to ultra-wide, which captures 4x more of the scene than before, making it ideal for vacations.

The iPhone 11 can capture stunningly sharp 4K video at 60fps from all of its cameras, so your vlogs will be legendary. The audio also follows suit when you zoom in (almost like magic)!

The night mode activates automatically in low-light photographs, preserving that natural, brilliant result even when the scenario isn’t perfect.

An outstanding 6.1-inch HDR liquid retina display adds to the iPhone 11’s appeal, with a choice of eye-catching colors and a design inspired by Apple’s iPad Pro (2018).

If you play a lot of games or multitask frequently, the iPhone 11 and Pro both have the fastest chip ever in a smartphone — the A13 bionic processor boasts speed and processing power that packs a punch, while also being power-efficient.

Well of course, when it comes to Apple’s iPhones, the latest version will really give you the most of it (and more trendy).

  • Support for display of multiple languages and characters simultaneously
  • 625 nits max brightness
