iPhone 11 PRO
We’ll cut to the chase: the Apple iPhone 11 Pro is the best smartphone money can buy!
It’s also the most advanced iPhone the Apple has ever released, driven by a brand new A13 Bionic processor. Pair this with a larger battery and several power optimisation smarts baked into iOS 13 itself. You have an iPhone that can last all day without having to be hooked up to a power outlet. Plus that’s with heavy usage! Be frugal with the device, and you could easily squeeze two days out of it.
But the headline act is the tri-camera. Notably, the third sensor is a wide-angle lens, bringing a 120-degree field of view, which is ideal for landscapes. The other two remain largely unchanged, with two small but impactful updates. The telephoto lens now has a larger aperture, letting in 40% more light, and the wide-angle sensor now has 100% focus pixels. Which essentially means it’s better at focusing in low-light.
2. SAMSUNG GALAXY S10 PLUS
If you’re looking for the absolute best Android phone on the market today, then look no further than the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.
Not only is this the fastest, most feature-packed and polished Galaxy smartphone that Samsung has ever launched. But it’s also doing something truly different from the iPhone and other rival flagship handsets. Whereas competitors have rushed to clone the notched screen design that first gained prominence with the iPhone X. Samsung has taken a dramatically different approach with its Infinity-O design.
Admittedly, that Infinity-O design isn’t the prettiest thing to leave the Samsung R&D lab and definitely takes some getting used to. However, it has allowed Samsung to fit the S10 Plus with an expansive 6.4-inch AMOLED panel. That’s the same size as the Galaxy Note 9 while simultaneously shrinking the physical size of the smartphone compared to the Galaxy S9 Plus, which sports a 6.2-inch screen.
Elsewhere, Samsung has included dual-front facing cameras so you can shoot Live Focus photographs brimming with artificial bokeh-style blur. There are also some fun new depth effects with the Galaxy S10 range, including the ability to turn the background greyscale to make the subject of the image really pop. These can also be shot using the triple-camera on the back of the handset.
3. HUAWEI P30 PRO
If you are a photography enthusiast and prefer the Android ecosystem to the iPhone one. Traditionally, we’d be pointing you towards Google’s Pixel range of phones, specifically, the latest and greatest Pixel 3 X. As these devices have become famous for their excellent camera systems.
Now, though, while the Google Pixel 3 XL is still a superb phone. The Huawei P30 Pro and its jaw-droppingly good quad-camera system have come along and largely stolen its thunder.
And that is saying nothing of the phone’s very impressive. Night Mode photography, or its sharp and colour-vibrant images with little noise, either.
4. ONEPLUS 7T PRO
This is one of the best-looking, most well-specced phones we’ve seen this year. There’s no doubt about that – from the pop-up selfie camera to the fantastic 6.67-inch screen. The OnePlus 7T Pro exudes quality.
A special mention for the OxygenOS software that OnePlus puts on its phones. It features some really good ideas, and in some ways improves on the stock Android that Google provides. Spend a few hours using it and you’ll see what I mean.
5. SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 10
With its absolutely stunning 6.3-inch Super AMOLED screen, powerful internal hardware suite, and advanced S Pen digital stylus, the Note 10 is undeniably one of the best Android phones available today. There isn’t an area where it doesn’t punch hard and, despite lacking a few features of the larger Galaxy Note 10 Plus, it is the model to plump for due to its more reasonable price point and sensible dimensions.
The new S Pen with 10-hour battery life and air gestures remains a unique, unmatched accessory, too, making the Note a singular proposition on the market. It is a hyper-flagship that transitions from productivity powerhouse to essential creative tool in seconds.
6. APPLE IPHONE 11
If you’re an Apple fan and can’t stretch financially to the tri-camera-toting awesomeness that is the iPhone 11 Pro, then the iPhone 11 makes a great case as a cheaper alternative – and so it could well be the best phone for you in 2020.
The iPhone 11 comes in a variety of attractive, bright colours, and features a quality 6.1-inch HDR Liquid Retina display, Apple’s latest and greatest A13 Bionic chipset, 3GB of RAM, a 3,110 mAh battery, and 64GB of storage space in the entry model (which can be taken up to 256GB with extra spend).
It is, across the board, a well-equipped and very well made phone that, straight out of the box, feels great in the hand.
7. GOOGLE PIXEL 4
The Google Pixel flagship phones have a lot going for them and easily make it on to our best smartphones list. Leading the way again, of course, is the camera: Google has added a second lens this time around, meaning even better shots (and even pictures of the stars).
Elsewhere you’ve got a modest spec to bump over last year and the pure stock Android experience that the Pixel phones are known for. Sometimes the strength of phone lies in what it doesn’t have, rather than what it has
8. SONY XPERIA 1
As you can probably see, the biggest thing – literally – about this phone is it’s 6.5-inch 21:9 4K display which, for the uninitiated, is the preferred aspect ratio for watching films (or movies, as the Americans call them) and TV. If those are two things that you like to do, then look no further than this beast of a handset.
The issue is, as we said in our review, is that while this display is a thing of beauty – crisp, huge, vibrant – the phone has a rather underwhelming battery, which means the screen appears dim unless cranked right up to near maximum. Crank that brightness up though, and the viewing experience is truly superb. Just don’t expect that battery to run for days on end.
9. GOOGLE PIXEL 3A
The Google Pixel 3a is the best smartphone going in 2020 if you prioritise value for money, camera quality and also want a vanilla software experience that comes straight from Google.
Indeed, the Pixel 3a’s super-low retail price of only £340 ($399) makes an absolute mockery of max-spec flagships that cost over £1000 more when you factor in the performance and experience it delivers.
Not only do you get the phenomenal camera that debuted in the much more expensive Google Pixel 3 XL, which along with the system loaded in the Huawei P30 Pro is the best-in-class system going today, but you also get a fast and pure Android 9.0 Pie experience as well as a very solid mid-range hardware spec, too.
10. XIAOMI MI 9T PRO
The Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro handset builds on the excellent Xiaomi Mi 9 to add even more in the way of functionality and features – and it ditches the front display notch to give you even more in the way of the screen (the 20MP selfie camera is moved to a motorised pop-up unit).
The internal hardware spec is remarkably premium considering its super low price point, too, with a lightning-fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 powering the whole operation. You really don’t have to worry about battery life, either, with the large 4,000mAh battery delivering a day to a day and a half medium-strength usage on a single charge.
Like its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro combines flagship-level specs with a design that’s guaranteed to turn heads wherever you get this phone out. Combine that with a very appealing price and it’s a fantastic all-round package from Xiaomi – one that’s well worth a place on our best phones of 2020 list thanks to its outstanding value for money.
