Wow!!! 2019 has been a great year and we have seen a lot of new innovations in the mobile phone world. These are my top 10 best smartphones for 2019.

All of these Smartphones that I have selected as my best smartphones in the whole world for 2019 are smartphones with new and exciting features.

Well, almost all the smartphones that were released in 2019 had something new and some great features added to them.

This and more kinds of stuff like this are what made 2019 a great year for the smartphone world and also for smartphone users.

Some of the smartphones released in 2019 seem to be exorbitant in their price range while some packs in a lot of these great features and still come in lower prices. All of this is what made 2019 smartphones excellent devices.

Top 10 Best Smartphones for 2019 all over the World.

Let us dive into the main business and let you see all of the best smartphones for 2019. All of these devices are devices released globally into the market but some of these devices might not really take a huge spot in Africa or Nigeria but they are recognized and well known all over the world.

In some of my previous articles, I talked about the best Infinix Phones for the year and also I write about the Best Tecno Mobile Phones for 2019 which you should check out to see what these two brands have done in Nigeria.

This selection is based strictly on the specifications and features these devices packs. So, here are my Top 10 Best Smartphone in the World for 2019

Asus ROG Phone 2

ROG Phone 2 is my best smartphone in the world for 2019. Here is why? This device comes out as a gaming smartphone – which means the ROG phone 2 can play any mobile phone game existing in the world.

Being a gaming smartphone doesn’t mean it can not do some other things rather than just gaming. With this device, you will enjoy epic photography and viewing moments. It has a dual rear camera.

The Asus ROG phone 2 comes with a 6.59-inch AMOLED type display at a 1080 x 2340 resolution at a 391PPI. The graphics processing unit Adreno 640 (700 MHz) is what makes gaming sweet. Not to talk of the fact that the device comes with a 120Hz refresh rate so gaming and other activities on the display will be more than what you think.

We have a 12GB RAM and a 256GB / 512GB storage option which has no SD Card slot. The storage option is well done because it will take a while to fill in the whole storage except you want to keep junks on your device.

The design looks a bit kind of weird and rugged but I feel that shows strength on the device. It uses the Snapdragon 855+ chipset which rocks an Octa-core (1×2.96 GHz Kryo 485 & 3×2.42 GHz Kryo 485 & 4×1.8 GHz Kryo 485) CPU which give an amazing and exciting performance.

 Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus

best smartphones in 2019

The next one which is one of the best devices in the world for 2019 is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus – A Galaxy that has everything you might be looking for.

The Galaxy Note 10 series came in August of the year 2019, Alongside the other Note 10 devices is when the Note 10 Plus was released.

At the event, Samsung showed us a lot of great things you can do with the Note 10 series devices and especially Note 10 Plus which is the biggest version of the Note 10 devices.

The Galaxy Note 10 has a very huge display of 6.8 inches which means handling with just one hand is not going to be possible. It is a smartphone you will handle with two hands or let say one and a half hand lol.

It uses the latest and the best Chipset from Samsung back then when the device was launch. There an Exynos 9825 (7 nm) chipset on the device which means you are welcoming a device with excellent performance.

The design of the Galaxy Note series is one of the highlights of the devices and the color and build quality are top-notch. We have seen an Aurora Glow gradient color which Samsung used on the device.

It as a 12GB RAM and a 256GB or 512GB internal storage which still supports and SD card option but no Earphone jack on this device – the only heartbreak I think you might get from the device.

There is a 4300mAh battery on the device that will give you extensive long usage either playing games, movies or surfing the internet and many more. There is a 54W fast charging feature added to this device.

Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro/ MI 9T


The smartphone that took the name as Flagship Killer in the course of the release. Why? Here are the reasons. The K20 Pro comes out with a cheap price that costs just $430 at the equivalent of N155,000. It has as the snapdragon 855 chipset and this is the chipset we found on only top flagship devices.

With this, the device still packs in an 8GB RAM with 256GB ROM. Tho, there is more storage option which is lesser tho this available. But there is no SD card option for the device which should not really bother us.

We have a 6.39-inch full display on the device which means no cut-out or anything on the display, not even a slight head notch. Thanks to the fact that the front selfie camera is a pop motorized camera.

Apple iPhone 11 Pro

iPhone 11 pro is the next choice as the best smartphone in 2019. I didn’t choose the iPhone 11 Pro Max because the only difference between these two is the display Size. The Pro Max has a 6.5-inch display and the iPhone 11 Pro has a 5.8-inch display.

The iPhone 11 Pro or let say the iPhone 11 series are devices that everybody has selected to be their best device for great photography in 2019. WHY? Apple has always been great at making smartphones that have the best camera lens.

This same great lens and the even better lens is what we have seen on the iPhone 11 series and they are just so amazing on every aspect that goes and deals with photography and videography.

Well, being a good device for photography and videography is not the only thing that has made this device one of the best smartphones in 2019. The performance you will get from Apple’s A13 (7nm) chipset is one thing comparable and slightly better than the Snapdragon 855 chipset.

The iPhone 11 Pro comes with the latest and the best ever made OS from Apple and that is the Apple IOS 13. This OS packs in a lot of great features more than we could even think of – well the people’s choice which I know is the Dark Mode feature.

The best alternative keyboard for all android users/smartphones

There is a 3190mAh battery on iPhone 11 Pro and a 3500mAh battery on the iPhone 11 Pro max which they both support fast charging and the battery cap is another difference on both devices.

Oneplus 7 Pro

best smartphones in 2019

The first smartphone released in 2019 with a fast refresh rate before others tap into it. It was released with a 90Hz refresh rate – one of the smartphones with the fastest display speed launched in 2019.

There is a 6.67-inch Optic AMOLED display on the OnePlus 7 Pro at a 1080 x 2340 resolution. The display is such an immersive one with great viewing experience and also colors are sharp.

I chose this device has one of the best smartphones in 2019 because of the great and amazing specs that we have on the device. We have an 8GB RAM and a 256GB internal storage option on this device.

There is a 30W warp fast charging feature on this device that makes the 4000mAh battery charges faster and gets you on the Go right away.

The biggest of all Samsung Galaxy S10 series released at the starting of this year. The Galaxy S10 series showed us what a device with a punch camera could really look like and how lovely they could be.

Samsung Galaxy Fold

best smartphones in 2019

The foldable device that had a very rough start and still had to go back into production and come back very strong and became better. Galaxy cannot be denied as one of the best phones in the world for 2019.

With the great innovation Samsung put into the Galaxy Fold it is worth it to have made it to the top best smartphones in 2019. There is a wide 7.2-inch display when the device is not folded and a 4.6-inch display when the display is folded.

A 12 GB RAM with a 512GB ROM is what Samsung installed on this foldable device. Snapdragon 855 chipset rocking an Octa-core (1×2.84 GHz Kryo 485 & 3×2.42 GHz Kryo 485 & 4×1.8 GHz Kryo 485) CPU which is what other best devices have.

Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung Galaxy S10e

The last device which is my selection for the best smartphones in 2019 across the world is the Samsung Galaxy S10e.

The Samsung S10e is the best compact smartphone in 2019. It has a very good build quality with a very good feel in hand. The size of the device is what makes the device more beautiful.

It has a punch hole on the display just like the other S10 series. It is smaller compared to other S10 – it has a 5.8-inch display at a  1440 x 2960 resolution and the display is made with corning gorilla glass 6 for good protection.
