Best guud: OnePlus 7T Pro
The follow-up to the best smartphone of the first half of 2019 waa, unsurprisingly, the best phone to end 2019. The OnePlus 7T Pro is a minor update to the stellar OnePlus 7 Pro that keeps all the good bits, improves the camera, and speeds up the fingerprint scanner.
The monster 6.67in QHD+ AMOLED screen runs at 90Hz – compared with 60Hz for most of the competition – is arguably the best in the business. It’s bright, crisp and super smooth, plus it’s free of holes or camera notches. The selfie camera pops up from the top on command – a consistent crowd-pleaser.
The 7T Pro is the fastest-feeling phone – everything zips along. It has Qualcomm’s top chip, Snapdragon ah 855+, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of fast UFS3.0 storage – plenty for practically everything. The optical in-display fingerprint scanner is even faster than before continuing to put the competition to shame.
The latest OxygenOS 10, the firm’s super-slick version of Android 10, is arguably the best in the business too, and you’ll get prompt updates for three years.
The triple camera system on the back is good too, combining a 48MP main, a 16MP xagal aalladda ballaaran iyo camera Telefoto 8MP. New for the 7T Pro is a super-macro mode, which is surprisingly good, producing crisp images up to just 2.5cm from the lens – great fun. The 7T Pro can’t quite beat the iPhone 11 Pro or Pixel 4XL, laakiin waxa ay kulan ama garaaca intiisa kale on faahfaahsan oo utility.
The 7T Pro lasts about 32 saacadaha u dhexeeya eedeeyay, making it one of the better performers. Charging is exceptionally fast via the firm’s WarpCharge system too, garaacid 70% in just 34 minutes via cable. There’s no wireless charging though.
Dual-sim support is handy for work or travelling. It’s water resistant to some extent, but has no IP rating. There’s a McLaren limited edition and a 5G version in the US, but not UK where the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G is still the current model.
Waa maxay sababta aad u iibsato?

macruufka Best: Apple iPhone 11 Pro
Good things come in smaller packages. iPhone The 11 Pro isn’t the biggest or the most expensive of Apple’s 2019 casriga ah, but it is the best and very nearly the best phone of the year.
iPhone The 11 Pro combines a stunning, big-enough 5.8in screen, svelte, luxurious-feeling body, top-notch performance and battery life to keep up with most of the competition.
Truth be told, the design is basically uncharged since the mould-breaking iPhone X from 2017. The back is now frosted glass, which looks particularly good in silver, and has a triple camera lump in the top left. The rest stays pretty much unchanged.
Apple’s Face ID is still the best, most widely-supported face recognition system in the business. The new A13 Bionic chip continues to lead the pack. The gesture navigation system continues to be one of the best, and you’re in line for around five years of iOS software updates from release – at least two more than any other manufacturer will provide.
This year the iPhone 11 Pro introduces a significantly improved triple camera with ultra-wide, wide and telephoto lenses, which matches the best rivals in photography and beats them in video. It even has an effective night mode now.
It’s not all gravy – starting with just 64GB of storage is poor. The old Lightning connector still persists, rather than the newer standard of USB-C. There’s no 5G option and it is exceedingly expensive – you don’t buy the iPhone 11 Pro looking for value for money. Plus iOS 13 has been a mixed bag since its introduction, with a lot of bugs that needed fixing.
But as a whole, no other phone can match the iPhone 11 Pro in power, capability and size. iPhone The 11 Pro is the smaller phone to buy and the best running iOS.
Waa maxay sababta aad u iibsato?
You want the best smaller phone, or simply the best Apple phone, then the iPhone 11 Pro is fantastic, but comes at a considerable cost

Best yar Android: Samsung Galaxy S10
If you want the Android sweet-spot between a big, screen cajiib ah oo size phone yar yar in ay u fududahay in ay xamili iyo taam jeebka, taasi S10 Galaxy.
The 6.1in QHD+ AMOLED screen with a small hole-punch notch in the top right is one of the best on the market and is big enough to make the most of apps and movies look great.
Small bezels all round make the phone pretty compact compared with rivals, iyo waxa aad ka light. Waxaa weli dhalooyinka iyo birta rooti, taas oo macnaheedu yahay in aad u baahan tahay kiis si looga hortago inuu dhaco.
The Galaxy S10 was recently updated with Samsung’s new One UI 2 software, based on the latest Android 10 including much-improved navigation gestures. You should get about three years of software support from release from Samsung, although the company is usually slower than Google and OnePlus to deliver big Android version updates.
The rear triple camera is good allowing you to zoom from 0.5 iyada oo 2x, iyo in 10x zoom ah hybrid. It won’t beat the Pixel 4 XL ama iPhone 11 Pro, but gets the job done. The selfie camera pokes straight though the screen and is one of the better ones on the market.
Performance waa wanaagsan tahay, laakiin nolosha batteriga waa yara daciif ah, lasting a day of usage but not much more. The ultrasonic fingerprint sensor mounted under the display has proved to be a bit slow and finickity over time, which can be annoying.

camera Best: Huawei P30 Pro
camera ugu wanaagsan on phone a waa Huawei ee P30 Pro by margin qaar ka mid ah. Even at the end of 2019, no other phone provides as comprehensive a combination as Huawei’s new Leica quad camera.
The 20MP 0.6x camera xagal aalladda, iriddu waa weyn xiiso leh, the main 40MP camera is terrific and it’s joined by a new periscopic 5x optical zoom camera that gets you closer than any other smartphone.

A 3D qoto-Satlaytaka waqti-of-duulimaadka wareeg shidma baxay modules ku yaala gadaasha dambe.
heerarka cajiib ah zoom gees u, the P30 Pro also has low-light performance that instantly turns night into day without having to wait for a couple of seconds of capture. The P30 Pro might not have the best Night Sight rival, but most of the time it simply doesn’t need it.
The rest of the phone is excellent, aad, with stunning colour options. The large 6.47in FHD+ OLED is great, with a small notch in the top containing the selfie camera and slim bezels all round. The qalooca geesaha sii width ee telefoonka si ballaaran a 73.4mm cidhiidhi ah, meaning it’s still relatively manageable and easier to wield day-to-day particularly compared with the OnePlus 7T Pro ama iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The in-screen optical fingerprint sensor is second only to the OnePlus 7T Pro’s. Huawei’s Kirin 980 processor, 8GB ee RAM iyo 128GB of kaydinta, provides great performance and a battery that will last about two days. Plus the battery charges super fast and has wireless charging and power sharing.

qiimaha Best: OnePlus 7T
Pound for pound the OnePlus 7T offers the best performance, design and experience than any other smartphone.
It’s got the big, good-looking 6.41in full HD OLED screen, with a small, widow’s-peak-like notch at the top for a selfie camera. New for the 7T is a 90Hz refresh rate, which like its bigger sibling the 7T Pro, makes even the mundane silky smooth.
It’s got 2019’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 855+ processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of fast UFS3.0 storage. It also lasts a good 31 hours on a charge, and its OxygenOS 10 Android software is fast and slick. OnePlus guarantees two years of software updates and an additional year of bi-monthly security updates from the release date of the phone too.
It even has the fastest and best in-display fingerprint scanner currently available, which is as good as the best dedicated capacitive sensors, good haptics and dual-sim support for having two mobile phone network connections at the same time.
The triple camera is good too, with ultra-wide, wide and 2x telephoto lenses, plus a dedicated macro mode, but it can’t beat the very best in the market. There’s no formal water resistance rating and no wireless charging, but WarpCharge sees it hit full charge in 60 minutes flat.

Apple iPhone 11
Apple’s cheaper iPhone 11 is the follow-up to last year’s iPhone XR and offers most of the features of the iPhone 11 Pro.

It is made of aluminium and glass, halkii ahama, badiyay ay u dareento raaxo iyo aqoonta in ay Apple ugu fiican ka dhigi kara.

Samsung Galaxy S10e
The smallest, cheapest variant of Samsung’s current S10 line is still good, but falls slightly short of the high bar set by the regular Galaxy S10. The Galaxy S10e loses the optical zoom with only two cameras on the back, has a flat, slightly smaller screen and a lower capacity battery. It also ditches in the in-screen fingerprint scanner for one embedded in the power button – great for right-handed users but not so for the left handed.
It doesn’t feel any smaller in the hand, but can be had for less if you must have a top-end Samsung for the lowest possible cost or dislike curved screens.

But on the other you have no fingerprint scanner, meaning until apps are updated to use the Face Unlock you’re forced back to using the old pin or password, the battery life is fairly short and there have been quite a few bugs that have needed fixing since launch.
