This year 47 new smartphones were released. Every smartphone had their best internals and externals according to the niche users. Some phones released did not have good specs but they stood tall for their design and looks.
So these are the TOP 5 SMARTPHONE OF THE YEAR 2018
The Infinix Hot S3X Review: Curvy, Good Performer But Lasts Long. The Infinix S3X is the successor to the Infinix S3 that is available exclusively through Safaricom retail stores. I am still not sure how Infinix has segmented its market as the Note 5 is currently available at around the same price as the S3X and they both came into the market at around the same time. Android 8.1 Oreo With XOS 3.3 Lite, Snapdragon 3/4 GB RAM, Adreno 505 GPU Dual 13MP + 2MP, 16MP for Selfies just like any other midrange smartphone.
Oppo released 2 flagship phones this year and one of them is Oppo F9. Decent specs elegant design but they included something new to F9. Oppo brought super VOOC charging technology which give you 2 hours of talk time in just 5 minutes of charging, comparatively better than other smartphones in the market.
Nokia was standing out for their windows smartphones back in years. They came back hard and tough this year with their variety of smartphones in 2018. Nokia 7.1 Plus was one of the best smartphone they released this year. Great qualcomm Snapdragon Processor and 4 GIGs of ram with amazing dual camera this phone is the beast. Glass sandwich premium design and curved edges feels premium just like other flagship device with are much more expensive.
The Huawei sub company Honor is competing with every other smartphone company in the world including Huawei itself. Honor Released their flagship smartphone which is Honor 10. Best design, 2018 level specs and wonderful A.I camera. This phone is one best phone out in the market. The best part of this phone is the price. The pricing of Honor 10 is like upper midrange smartphones in the market.
Would love to talk a lot about this phone. In this smartphone the makers have used their newest processor chipset Hisilicon Kirin 980 which is comparatively more powerful then Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. A glass sandwich design with aluminum sides. 88% screen to body ratio which is like so much to look at. Just like P20 Pro, Huawei Mate 20 have 3 rear facing Cameras. A 12MP standard lens, a 16MP ultrawide lens and 8MP telephoto lens. No monochrome lens this time. Fingerprint on Mate 20 is on the back of the device. This device is more powerful then P20 and P20 Pro. Huawei stressed how much better its Android software is than Samsung’s, including claims of 22 percent higher stability in gaming performance and 14 percent higher power efficiency in the Mate 20 Pro than the Note 9. It also got in-screen finger print sensor and reverse wireless charging.
