The Ultimate Guide To Buy Smartphone In 2019 – Top Ten Smartphones

Smartphones are evolving every month now. In previous years, a major change among smartphones wasn’t seen for a year. But now new revolutionary things can be seen with each new release. Things we might’ve never thought years ago we might need in a phone. But regardless, they are here and we need to adjust. We are talking about no bezels on the sides of the screen. Now every phone that releases is continuing this trend but some phones have taken to the extreme as well. Phones like Oppo Find X where the screen to body ratio on the phone is 93.3%. That’s incredible when you think about it, how immersed you will feel with no black bars around the phone. But the most incredible thing about a revolutionary phone like that is how they manage to pull that screen ratio.




Read here about the best bezel-less phones to buy.

Revolutions made among smartphones in recent years

Oppo made that unbelievable screen ratio possible by removing the top of the phone which hold the front camera and couple sensors. They motorized that part and made it come out whenever they were in need. Otherwise, you could stay immersed in that phone with just screen. And then there is Apple who has removed the headph0ne jack and that is yet to be known exactly why Anyway those iPhone also has an incredible display with a ratio of more than 80%.

This incredible screen to body ratio created a notch for other phones than the Oppo Find X. The new iPhones have this huge notch on the screen, you can try to forget about it but its there. If the video or game you are about to play does not support 18:9 displays then that experience will be really bad. Another phone with a hideous notch this year would be The Pixel 3, more about that phone below as it is a top recommendation. Pixel 3 got meme’d really bad when it came out people were calling the Notch 3xl and whatnot like there’s big screen with that notch. And the biggest disappointment with this phone would be the removing of the headphone jack.

The headphone jack

But that removing the headphone jack by Apple has encouraged other manufacturers to do the same. This wasn’t expected if Apple if we be honest, Apple has been a trendsetter which is not the case anymore. And now we won’t be seeing headphone jacks in any flagships other than Samsung and LG. Even the Chinese manufacturers we depended on like OnePlus have decided to give in to this stupid trend. Headphone jacks have been in phones for as how long as I can remember. The flip phone I owned in 2006 had that now dreaded headphone jack. Well, regardless we can understand why this is happening its because they are trying to make the world wireless. In my opinion, I don’t think the world’s ready. Because wireless accessories can’t even compare to wired ones like headphones. We can’t get the same sound quality in wireless headphones as we could get in wired ones. Another thing is wireless charging it doesn’t matter how revolutionary it is it still charges slower than a normal charge, that’s not even comparing to fast charging.

The Trend is set for 2019

Rumors were already coming out for the Foldable Samsung phone even before their major releases for 2018. So its clear Samsung has been hard at work creating the Samsung Galaxy F they just announced. So it’s clear the age of folding smartphones is getting closer. Patents for foldable smartphones are being filed in increasing number than ever before.

Then there is phone like Nubia X that has a dual screen. A screen on the back ( the techie in me is screaming), like how crazy is that. When you turn the phone around it will know which screen you are looking at and will activate that. But this phones comes at a cost and that is no selfie camera. It isn’t a problem with that phone though because you can use the rear screen and camera to take a selfie.

So onto our recommendations for phones to buy in 2019. Heads Up, these phones won’t be cheap in no way. If you are in a budget you can go look at our 2018’s list those phones are cheap and pack a punch.

Top ten smartphones to buy in 2019

iPhone Xs Max and Xs

On top of our list would be the iPhone Xs and Xs max. To put it short, these phones are powerful. Like no joke these phones are so powerful that any Android competition doesn’t even come close. That A12 bionic chip is beast. Pair that CPU with super AMOLED displays and you have the best phones out. These phones are the phones to get for the couple months of 2019 until the next flagship is released.

But you can buy them in golden color now, so people could know it’s different.
