Top 5 BEST Smartphones of 2019


– What’s up guys, Saf here on SuperSaf TV and we are coming towards the end of 2019 and what a year it’s been for smartphones. We’ve had so many good
smartphones this year and, as I do in the end of
every year SuperSaf Style, I’m gonna be putting together a list of my absolute top five. Now a few disclaimers before we start. I’ve, of course, used a lot
of smartphones this year, as you can see, but I’ve
not used every single one, so this is my personal top five list. It might be different for yours. That’s absolutely fine. We can still be friends. Drop your top smartphones of
2019 in the comments below. Also, this list is not going
to be in any particular order. These are just my top five, however I will be revealing
my overall favorite smartphone in an upcoming SuperSaf
Style collaboration video. If you want to see that first, then be sure to subscribe
and hit that bell icon so you don’t miss it. Let’s get straight to it. The first device on my list, once again in no particular order, is the Samsung Galaxy
S10, as well as the S10+. I’m combining them because they
are both very, very similar and these are some of the
best all-around devices that you can buy this year. I had the S10+ in my pocket
for a very, very long time. The S10s are also some of the
only devices left this year that have 3.5mm jack, as
well as expandable storage. This is something that we’re
really not seeing much of in this smartphone space, but that aside, these are great phones. Amazing displays with a punch out, which I actually don’t mind, so you do maximize that
screen-to-body ratio. You’ve got a great built-in design, the water and dust resistance, fast charging, fast wireless charging, reverse wireless charging, great all-around consistent cameras with good overall performance. Now, they’re not perfect. I have talked about the differences between the Exynos version as
well as the Qualcomm version, so you will be getting a
different version of the S10 depending on your region and in my experience they
did differ quite a bit, especially when it came to battery life. Now, they might not have some
of the other fancy features that other devices on this list have, such as the high refresh rate screen, fast charging, faster storage speeds, but nevertheless the S10s
are very, very good devices and I can definitely recommend them. The next device on my list is a device that I’ve
actually enjoyed using a lot this year and that
is the iPhone 11 Pro Max. I’m also gonna include the iPhone 11 Pro because they’re very, very similar. Now, although we might not
have a drastic design change, especially from the front, the other devices on this
list might have smaller bezels and better displays overall, but the iPhone 11 Pro Max
is such a good device, especially for the cameras. I’ve said this before but it shoots the best
video on any smartphone. I do find it the best
all-around camera package when it comes to video,
the versatility of images, the consistency between the images, low-light performance, stabilization. All of these things I think
the iPhone does very, very well and that’s one of the reasons
why it’s stayed in my pocket. But aside from that, you’ve got amazing improvements
in terms of battery life. Apple are now including a fast charger, which they haven’t done traditionally. You’ve got wireless charging. You’ve also got better
water and dust resistance compared to any of the other
smartphones on this list. And I also like the speed of performance. The A13 has been super, super fast and very, very smooth with iOS 13 and I really enjoyed using the
iPhone 11 Pro Max this year. There are a few things
that I’m not a huge fan of on the new iPhones. I would’ve liked to have
seen a more updated design. I would’ve liked to have seen
a larger base storage option, which still starts at 64 gigabytes. Also the price. The iPhone 11 Pro Max is the
most expensive smartphone on this list, so it is quite pricey, but nevertheless a very,
very good overall smartphone. The next device on my list actually comes in at quite
a reasonable price point in my opinion and that
is the OnePlus 7 Pro or the OnePlus 7T Pro. Although the price of OnePlus
devices has been increasing year on year, OnePlus has been giving us more and more features year on year and this year the highlight has to be that super smooth 90 hertz display. That, along with the pretty
much bezel-less design, makes it one of the best
displays on the market right now and it is definitely fast
and smooth, like OnePlus say. You’ve got UFS 3.0 storage, you’ve got the 855 or the 855 Plus, and all of that combined with Oxygen OS makes this one of the fastest
smartphones out there easily. Now, some of the areas
where OnePlus devices do fall back a little bit firstly
has got to be the cameras. Although they’re pretty
good for most situations, they’re definitely not as
good as the competition, which, in my opinion, shoot
much better images and video. And also we still don’t
have wireless charging. This is something that
I’ve become very used to. It might not be a big deal to you. But OnePlus just seems to be
concentrating on fast charging but really putting
aside wireless charging, which pretty much every other
device on this list has. Now, next on my list is a device series which I’m sure a lot of you
guys know I’ve been a fan of for a long time and that is
the Samsung Galaxy Note series. The Note10 and the Note10+
are very, very good devices. Now, although we might not have
a high refresh rate screen, these are still some of the best displays because of the minimal bezels. We have that punch out. But the main thing that
separates the displays of the Note series versus others is that these displays
are very, very bright. They’re some of the
brightest displays out there and that’s a compromise that I was personally willing to make when using the Note devices. Aside from that, you of course
have great internals overall, as well as the S Pen. The S Pen is something that
I don’t use every single day but it’s so, so useful when
need it for signing documents, remotely triggering the camera, and the cameras are really, really good. They’re similar to the S10+s, so great overall cameras,
lots of versatility between all of the different lenses. An amazing build and design. In my opinion, one of the
best looking smartphones out there this year. Now, the final smartphone on my list, once again in no particular order, is the Huawei P30 Pro. This is a very, very good smartphone. It has, I believe, the
first five time optical zoom on a smartphone and it’s really amazing
how they’ve achieved this through periscope technology. An amazing build and design. The gradient look that Huawei
introduced a few years ago is now being copied by
lots of other manufacturers and it looks absolutely beautiful. Amazing, amazing battery life. This is something that
Huawei is very, very good at, along with 40 watts super fast charging. That charger comes out of the box. You don’t have to buy it separately, like you have to do with some devices. Very fast wireless charging as well. Now, personally not a
huge fan of the display. It’s pretty good but there’s lots of other
better displays out there. And the cameras, although I do like them, especially for low light,
they’re not amazing for video. I do still find that they
tend to smooth out your skin, even if you have beauty
mode completely switched off and this is especially the case
for the front-facing camera. And that is my top five list,
but it’s not finished as yet. I do want to pick a bonus. So we’ve got the top five
but there is a bonus, a smartphone which I was
super, super excited about. And the reason why it’s a bonus and not part of this top five is because it’s something that I think not everybody is going to buy
because it’s so, so expensive and that is the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m fully aware that it’s not perfect. It’s very fragile, the front display is
also very, very small, but I hadn’t been this
excited about a new smartphone in a long, long time. And in my opinion, this
is the biggest innovation that we’ve had in the smartphone space for a long time, too. It’s so amazing to have
that large display, which I can just fold and pop in my pocket and I think Samsung have implemented this really, really well. It’s still only the
proper foldable smartphone that you can buy. And aside from the folding factor, it’s a really, really good smartphone. You get 512 gigabytes of UFS
3.0 storage, which is massive, so technically speaking, you’ll probably be spending a lot of money if you try to buy a 512
gigabyte smartphone anyway. It has very similar cameras
to the other Samsung devices, so we’ve got some very
good overall cameras. It has great battery life and the battery’s actually
split across the fold, which is really interesting. It has fast charging,
fast wireless charging, reverse wireless charging. It’s just a really,
really exciting smartphone that we’ve had this year. And, once again, I know
it’s not for everybody and it’s a first-generation product but it gets me really
excited about what’s to come. Now, there are a few honorable mentions that I’d like to highlight. These just didn’t make the top five list but nevertheless are very,
very good smartphones overall. Firstly, the Huawei Mate 30
Pro, a great overall device, but because of the issues
with the Google Play Store, it’s a device that I’ve not
been able to fully utilize and fully been able to use because I just didn’t have
that smooth experience. Hopefully this is something
that’s gonna be sorted out very, very soon. There was also the Redmi K20 Pro, which I know a lot of you guys are gonna be mentioning in the comments. Unfortunately, this came
very, very late to the UK and it’s something that
I didn’t personally get a chance to test out. But for the specs that
you’re getting on that device at that price point, it’s a
very, very impressive device, no doubt about that. And in the gaming space,
the ASUS ROG Phone II by far in my opinion, hands down is the best gaming smartphone you can buy. I play Call of Duty on it all the time. It’s great to see a smartphone built from the ground up for gamers and if you are somebody who’s into gaming, that is the phone that I would recommend. So that is my top five
list, as well as a bonus and some honorable mentions. What are your top five
smartphones of the year? Definitely drop me a comment below and let me know your thoughts. Do you agree with my list? Do you disagree? Once again, we can always be friends. It’s so exciting to be at this time when you’ve got so, so many options. As I mentioned towards
the start of this video, I will be revealing my
personal favorite smartphone of the year in an upcoming SuperSaf Style collaboration
video with all of my friends and if you want to see that first, then be sure to subscribe
and hit that bell icon so you don’t miss it. I hope you enjoyed this
video and found it useful. If you did, then do it
that thumbs up for me. Thanks for watching. This is Saf on SuperSaf TV
and I’ll see you next time. (quiet hiphop music)

  1. I am a android user but iphone is killing it this year. For me….I would be bored with IOS within a week…but if you got that iphone 11 pro max with android on it (I know it's never going to happen) I would of been all over that.

    I think the Mate 30 Pro could have been really successful with the rooting community but I think Huawei changed there mind on a few things and it never happened. If they just let people root and install custom roms without taking someone warranty, let us install their stock camera app to the custom Rom and worked more with custom app developers to help kill the bugs you can get with custom roms, they would have had phone of the year for rooters

    The Pixel 4 might as well be called the Pixel flop this year. Hardware is behind, looks ugly, reviews havent been great. I think google should just stop now. Put that money into working with android users to implement there amazing camera technology to order android phones. Another cool thing they could do is allow the user to decide between The device their using stock OS or they can go into the update settings and ask for pixel OS and it just downloads and installs a pixel OS with some features you might need clamped on….eg S-pen support ect

  2. For me
    S10+ tera version
    Note10+
    One plus 7t
    P30 pro
    Honor 20 pro
    Should note 10+ has the best smartphone but, no 3.5 headphone Jack 😑, why Samsung?

  3. I like SAMSUNG. So here are the top 10 Samsung phones in 2019
    1. Samsung Galaxy Fold
    2. Samsung Galaxy note 10 Plus
    3. Samsung galaxy S10 Plus
    4. Samsung Galaxy S10
    5. Samsung Galaxy A50 (Best selling phone in 2019)

  4. why not just make a chart/table to list the top 5 or 10 model with the price? I just need to compare the specs to make a decision when my phone die

  5. Sad that we no longer see the LG, Sony and Nokia around…phones are moving fast and alot of big brands failed to innovate early and now find themselves behind… Surprise to see huawei around the big boys and congrats to oneplus for breaking in the list… Cant wait to see what the future have for us.. And i hope usa stoo getting involved in innovation.. We need companies like huawei xioami oppo to keep pushing big companies to innovate….

    My top 5
    P30 pro (mate 30 pro if had google)

  8. I am genuinely happy to see Apple doing so much better this year and making android fans surprised with how good 11 Pro is.
    Thanks for fair coverage, buddy! 🙂

  9. 1-Oneplus 7t pro
    2-Note 10+
    3-Asus ROG 2
    4-11 pro max
    5-S10+
    Honourable mention- Huawei mate 30 pro. If it had google play services,it would have been the best phone hands down

  10. Oneplus 7T Pro McLaren Edition 🔥

    Absolutely gorgeous screen
    Super quick charging
    Blistering speed/fluidity
    Very good camera

    Admittedly not quite on the level of Pixel 4, but it's still good enough

  11. I wish Trump would stop leveraging Huawei. I'd love a Mate 30 Pro that works on Verizon. It would have been the best phone of 2019 if there wasn't a Trade War.

  12. Actually the best 🔥🔥
    1.Huawei Mate 30 pro
    2.Samsung Galaxy note 10 +
    3.Apple iPhone 11 pro
    4.One plus 7t pro
    5.Samsung Galaxy s10 +

  13. In terms of Design and Looks Note 10 plus is way ahead of the competition. And also it is the best Android Smartphone till date.

  14. My list would consist of these.
    1. Samsung galaxy s10 (i have it myself)
    2. Oneplus 7t
    3. Iphone 11pro
    4. Huawei p30 pro
    5. Oppo reno 2
    Theres anotherone that i like but it isnt available everywhere.. thats the oneplus 7t pro mclaren edition.

  15. currently using 🙂

    1. One+ 7 Pro (Daily & Games)
    2. Note10+ (Planner, Reminder and Business)
    3. iPhone 11 Pro Max (Storage)

    wish i could buy
    4. Mate30 Pro
    5. Pixel 4xl

  16. Razr is the best folding smartphone implementation. Period.
    Samsung did a great job showing foldable smartphone is possible, but neither screen is good enough for content consumption.
    Razr on the other hand has just told that 8 inch phablet will be a 4 inch in your pocket. That's awesome.

  17. 1-Galaxy S10+
    2-Mate 30 pro
    3- Rog phone II
    4-OnePlus 7T Pro
    5-mi 9T pro (my device XD )
    5.1- if i dont choose mine realme x2 pro

  18. Please, can you help me and this will be a simple charity help I am a big fan of your fans and subscribed to your channel and follower in Insta and Vis I am, Sir, I want you to donate to me any phone if it is weak or strong, I do not have a phone from 4 years Can you help me, myth 😖😖😥 No one I know in the software except you helped me I asked you for help and I know that you will help me

  19. Galaxy S10/Note 10 devices are hands down the best all around Android devices this year. Competition do a few things better, but most of them lack a lot of stuff that the 10 series just have. I would say, for me:

    1- 11Pro Max
    2- Note 10+
    3- OnePlus Pro (Be it 7 or 7Pro)

    Those are the only ones I have been able to use, but after having a high refresh screen for a while I honestly believe is overhyped. I rather have iOS' super smooth animations or Samsung's features and better cameras all day, even more so when those displays kill it in HDR and brightness.
