12 October 2018 | Joel Vijay

The beauty of buying a smartphone for most of us is that we only do it once every few years. But when the time comes to change our phones, we are spoilt for choice. Too many phones, too many options. No worries! Let us narrow down your search with a compilation of 5 best phones of 2018 and their features.

Huawei P20 Pro

Best feature: Camera

We start off the list with Huawei’s latest flagship – Huawei P20 Pro. Released in March 2018, the Huawei P20 Pro features a 6.1-inch screen AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, Android 8.1 (Oreo), Hisilicon Kirin 970 chipset, an octa-core 4x2.4 GHz Cortex-A73 & 4x1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and 6/8GB RAM options.

But the best part of the Huawei P20 Pro has got to be its camera! Its rear camera system is made up of 3 cameras. This triple camera combination deploys 40MP, 20MP, and 8MP cameras to create crystal clear images.

The P20 Pro camera also allows you to snap photos in total darkness. Leica optics along with wide lenses, telephoto, HDR, full HD video, and panorama features give this camera an added advantage over any other phone in the market.

One look at it and you’ll find the similarities – the notch, the bezels, even the wallpaper. What’s better, it’s bigger than its Apple role model at 6.3 inches.

In summary, the Vivo V9 comes with glass-aluminium body and runs Android 8.1 Oreo with Funtouch OS 4.0. It is powered by an Octa-core 2.2 GHz Cortex-A53 and Adreno 506 GPU.

Nokia 7 Plus

Best feature: Stock Android and trendy looks

One of the first things you notice about the Nokia 7 Plus is its copper accent running between the frame. The premium feel of the Nokia 7 Plus comes with the combination of copper, glass, and a rear matte finish. Although the matte finish gives a plastic feel, it is useful for additional grip as the phone is fairly large for an average hand. Screen size comes in at 6 inches and the IPS LCD display is vibrant with deep blacks and bright colours.

Nokia 7 Plus runs stock Android 8.1 Android Oreo without the bloatware. This maximizes storage and speed. The 7 Plus gets 4 GB RAM, 64GB storage expandable with external microSD card up to 256GB.
