Samsung Galaxy S20
Samsung's newest smartphone is one of the most powerful we've ever seen. The Galaxy S20 can connect 5G networks, take incredibly sharp photos with its 64 MP telephoto lens, and record videos in 8K quality. Although this phone only has 128 GB of internal storage, it supports more than 1 TB of expandable storage.
iPhone 11 Pro Max
The iPhone 11 Pro Max is the top-of-the-line iPhone. It has a 6.5 inch display, a rear triple camera with an ultra-wide lens, and three storage variants: 64, 256, and 512 GB.
If you plan on taking lots of high-quality photos and videos, you'll probably want the 256 or 512 GB variant. For example, a ten minute 4K video at 60 frames per second will be a 4 GB file. It's very easy to use up a lot of storage space quickly with this phone.
Samsung Galaxy S10+
The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is the one of the best Androids on the market. It has a 6.4 inch display, a rear triple camera, 8–12 GB of RAM, a 4100 mAh battery, and much more.
Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S10, there is no 5G variant of this phone. That's not necessarily a bad thing, as 5G isn't widely available yet.
Even though the iPhone XR is a year old, it's still a great phone. It has a 12 megapixel camera, a 6.1 inch display, and 64, 128, and 256 GB storage variants.
The XR got a nice price reduction when the iPhone 11 was released. Apple reduced the price of the iPhone XR from $749 to $599. If you're on a budget, this iPhone is a great option!
Google Pixel 3a XL
If we were Android users, this is the one we'd choose. The Google Pixel 3a XL has a 6 inch display, a 12.2 megapixel camera, and long-lasting battery.
Even though this phone only has 64 GB of storage space, Google has built excellent storage infrastructure. Google Photos and Google Drive make it easy to store your files without taking up storage space on your phone.
Google also pioneered Night Sight, a camera mode that makes it easier to take high-quality photos in even dimly lit areas. Apple built similar technology into their new line of iPhones.
iPhone SE 2
Apple's new budget iPhone is officially on the market! The iPhone SE 2 starts at just $399. It has a 4.7 inch display, a 12 MP camera, and the same A13 processor as the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max. The 2nd Generation iPhone SE also has a water-resistance rating of IP67.
The iPhone 11 is our favorite from the new line released by Apple in 2019. It has a dual rear camera setup, a 6.1 inch display, and a slightly better battery life than the iPhone XR. There are three different storage variants: 64, 128, and 256 GB.
The iPhone 11 comes with iOS 13 preinstalled, meaning you'll be able to immediately use new settings like Dark Mode and Audio Sharing.
