Like every year, 2020 has brought many new smartphones to the market with advanced features. Today, our smartphones are getting more smarter and are increasingly available in various models. When you are planning to buy a new smartphone, you may find an overwhelming number of choices. Especially when smartphone manufacturers introduce new technology, choosing the best one is difficult. In this article, I’m going to share with you a list of the 8 best smartphones available in the market now.
This year, Samsung has launched various flagship models that include advanced 5G technology for faster internet. But, make sure the 5G is not yet functional and the report says that it will take at least 3 years for companies to introduce 5G in India. Besides, another intriguing feature offered by Samsung Galaxy S20 is its 120Hz display, which promises you a mesmerizing gaming experience, especially when you are playing action-packed games. They added all this without compromising on battery life. Samsung S20 gives you 5 hrs of on-screen time, which is more than enough for using all day long. Besides, wireless charging is now faster than before. And one con is that we have no choice but to use a wireless headphone. Meanwhile, there is no headphone jack anywhere on this phone.
Apple’s iPhone needs no introduction, because iPhone rules the smartphone market and it is the king of all smartphones. But this time the iPhone hasn’t brought any mind-blowing changes into their new model, neither in design nor in hardware. Rather, there are a few subtle changes such as a tiny bit increase in Face ID recognition time and added more space for battery. Hence it is heavier than the iPhone 11. It looks and feels like almost similar to its prior model with one astonishing difference. Pro gives more battery on-screen life than its predecessor. The battery won’t run out even if you use the phone continuously for 7 long hours. And a new A13 Bionic chip with 4GB RAM makes this phone way faster. The camera is the focal point of the iPhone 11 Pro, and as they had promised this phone gives an excellent photographic experience. For enhancing the photographic experience, they included 12 MP 2x telephoto sensor, and 0.5x ultra wide sensor. iPhone 11 Pro offers wireless charging. But no headphone jack on this. An added plus is the IR sensor, which makes the face recognition fast.
3) OnePlus 8 Pro:
This year, OnePlus 8 Pro rivals all smartphones out there, as it comes with full-packed features. The most surprising features are its 30 watts Warp charge technology and custom Oxygen OS. You can buy this phone at 8GB and 12GB RAM. Also, OnePlus 8 Pro adds a 120Hz display, which makes the touch function smooth. But if you are worried about battery life, you can switch back to 60Hz. For a superior photographic experience, you will find no better smartphone than OnePlus 8 Pro, it has 48 MP main camera, 48 MP super wide-angle and 8 MP telephoto for zooming. No doubt, OnePlus gives you excellent photography. Its ergonomic design gives comfy to our palms, except an enormous camera bump makes a little discomfort. Like Samsung, this phone also has AMOLED quad HD display with an amazing 120Hz refresh rate, which facilitates a silky smooth touch. You can even roam around in darkness by using the display, no need of switching the torch on. OnePlus also introduced the MEMC technology on the OnePlus 8 Pro and this software helps the phone to add frames when the videos are shot at 30 or 40fps. We can confidently say that OnePlus keeps its promise of 120fps experience.
Like the Apple store, Huawei introduces its own app store. One can experience this new OS features in the Huawei P40 Pro Plus. Now an app maker can just focus on the Huawei phone and can enhance the performance. To be frank, Huawei apps work better than Android. That doesn’t mean that you can’t install Google play store. You can pretty much install all apps (except Google pay) available in the play store. But remember, Huewai is not Google certified, you may face some inconvenience while using few Android apps. An 8GB RAM smoothens the overall performance. If we talk about camera this phone can capture great pictures even in low-light conditions. Besides, Huawei P40 Pro Plus has a 40-watt wireless charger. The one downside you will find is that there is no headphone jack on the phone.
Sony Xperia 1 II is the 2020’s best camera smartphone (so far). With 4K display and 12×3 MP rear cameras, have autofocus and eye detection, which gives a reminiscence of your latest DSLR. By replicating those technologies from their camera, Sony tries to give full-fledged cinematography experience. Besides, there is an app called cinematographic pro, which took technology from their flagship Cine ultra venus camera (Netflix shows are shot with that camera). Anyhow, this amazing smartphone can be well suited for vloggers and freelancers.
6) Xiaomi Mi 10:
Finally Xiaomi enters our list of the best smartphones. This year Xiaomi launched Mi 10 with 30-watt wireless charging option. Having an excellent 25-megapixel camera, it has large sensors that give a shallow depth of field to an image. One problem with this phone is that you can’t extend the internal storage, you have to live with what you’ve got: 128GB or 256GB storage with 8GB RAM. The sound quality of Xiaomi Mi 10 is better than any other smartphones mentioned above.
7) Oppo Find X2 Pro:
This huge phone (6.7 inch AMOLED display) runs on Color OS 7.1 which helps to add more frames to 30fps videos. Water-resistance feature seals any chance of moisture penetration, so you can even take your Oppo Find X2 Pro to your shower. Oppo Find X2 Pro has a high pixel camera with AI features. It comes with a 48 MP main camera, a 48 MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 13 MP telephoto lens. On the front, it has a 32 MP selfie camera. The Oppo Find X2 Pro has a 4260 mAh battery that allows you to play games for longer hours.

Realme 6 comes with four variants: 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, 6GB RAM + 64GB storage, 6GB RAM + 128GB storage and 8GB RAM + 128GB storage. Finally, we found a Realme smartphone that supports memory card, so you can extend internal memory. This phone has a sexy outer design, on the back case, when the light reflects it gives a 3D effect. The front screen is protected by Gorilla glass. Remember this phone can’t be used in any moisture-filled space.
