Samsung, Huawei and Apple make their own, while Qualcomm is the largest supplier to other brands at the high end, with its Snapdragon 8-series range at the top. The RAM memory is where your apps and processes are stored when in use, so the you more your phone has the better, up to a point.

Different from memory, storage is where everything is stored on the phone, including apps and media. While a few phones can have their storage expanded with microSD cards, most cannot. That means you should aim for 64GB of storage at a minimum, but more if you want to store lots of photos. Cloud services such as Spotify or Google's Photos can help offload your music, photos or videos to the internet. Keeping your phone secure from hackers is essential, which makes software updates critical to patch bugs and security holes, as well as adding new features and improving things such as battery life and the camera.
Not all phones receive regular updates. Apple's support of older phones is the best in the business of around 5 years, followed by Samsung and Google's three years, both from when the phone was released - not when you buy it. Battery life varies drastically between devices, and "all-day battery" often doesn't mean 24 hours between charges. Some may not last long enough, particularly if you're out in the evening. Battery life gets worse as the battery ages too, so a two-day battery will likely make sure the phone lasts at least a day two years later.
Cameras are the current battleground between the big players, but the margins between them are slimming. Most use computational photography that combines hardware with advanced software algorithms, typically allowing multiple cameras to combine to make one image.
As such the camera software makes as much difference as the hardware, and is one of the few areas that actually improves over time with updates. Multi-camera systems often offer more, such as useful zooms, portrait modes and better low-light performance, but they are not all created equally. There are also 3D cameras, which can detect facial expressions and other fun tricks. The number of megapixels MP also makes a difference.
Having more MP doesn't necessarily equal a better image, but modern smartphone cameras combine multiple pixels to improve image quality producing 12MP shots from 48MP sensors, for example. It has slightly battery life too, but is missing the excellent ultra-wide angle camera, has a slightly larger, but worse screen.
The iPhone 11 certainly holds its own for the money, but the iPhone 11 Pro still the one to buy if you want the best iPhone. Full review: iPhone 11 review: an iPhone XR with a better camera. If you must have an iPhone and it must have a massive screen or epic battery life then the iPhone 11 Pro Max is your only option. But it has really poor ergonomics, is big, expensive and heavy, making the smaller iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 are better options. Full review: iPhone 11 Pro Max review: salvaged by epic battery life. 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. The bigger version of the Galaxy S10 with a 6. The oval-shaped hole-punch notch is novel, containing two good selfie cameras. The triple rear camera is good, but not a patch on the Huawei P30 Pro. Performance is good, so is the software, but the battery life is slightly disappointing compared with the best. The fingerprint scanner is a bit slow and can be frustrating to use.
It has the biggest screen on a Samsung with a monstrous 6. The stylus can now be used as a magic wand for gestures, there are three cameras on the back and is available in a 5G version too. The fingerprint scanner is a bit slow and can be a bit frustrating to use. Full review: Samsung Galaxy S10 5G review: bigger, faster and lasts longer.
The Mate 20 Pro has the big, attractive 6. It recently received EMUI 10 Android 10 and is worth looking out for deals, particularly if you want the 3D face unlock option. Full review: Huawei Mate 20 Pro review: cutting-edge brilliance. This was never an issue on the OnePlus 6T because the dual camera's pill-shaped bump was smaller. On the OnePlus 6, there was a capacitive fingerprint reader in that spot. Samsung's Galaxy S10 and Huawei's P30 Pro don't have this problem because the camera modules are positioned higher or off to the side.
I know, it's still heartbreaking for a lot of people because dongles suck, but it's and pretty much all flagship phones with the exception of Samsung's Galaxy S10 have ditched the port and embraced wireless headphones. I used them during two flights across country and they sound great for the money with deeper bass and more dynamic range than the first generation wireless buds. The Bullets Wireless 2 battery is good for up to 14 hours of listening time; a single charge got me through both of my 6-hour flights with juice to spare.
The OnePlus 7 Pro's thicker and heavier than previous OnePlus phones, but still manages to feel solid in the hand. Once again, the OnePlus 7 Pro doesn't come with any IP water or dust resistance, though the body is splash-resistant and the pop-up selfie camera is moisture and dust-proof. OnePlus's justification for not including IP certification is simple: It would've been an added cost. I get that, but if they're gonna be so transparent, how much more would adding an IP rating have really added to the OnePlus 7 Pro's price?
I'm torn on how I feel about this.

On the other hand, how many people really need IP certification? Yes, it's nice to have protection for your device's inside parts, but in all my years of owning IP-rated phones, I can't say it's ever saved my device from damage. Maybe I'm more careful by not bringing my phone in the the bathroom or using it at the beach, but I'd say splash-resistance is good enough.
The OnePlus 7 Pro has a 6. It's basically all screen. The 6. And in addition to the screen getting super bright, it also gets dimmer than before to make using it in the dark more comfortable.

But maybe the best new feature is the display's zippy and super smooth 90Hz refresh rate. Most phone screens have a refresh rate of 60Hz. Nothing wrong with 60Hz — it's a perfectly usable refresh rate and most people could care less that increasing it makes everything look better and feel faster. But once you use a screen this smooth, it's hard going back to one that's slower and less responsive.
At 90Hz, scrolling and swiping is smoother and less jittery than on screens that operate at 60Hz.
It's especially noticeable on text-heavy websites and apps like Twitter — text is just more readable at 90Hz. Photos are also less blurry when swiping through an Instagram feed. It's impossible for me to show you how much nicer a 90Hz refresh rate is in photos or video, so you'll just have to take my word for it. Scrolling on a website or through an Instagram feed is far smoother at 90Hz on the OnePlus 7 Pro than at 60Hz on other phones.
While the 90Hz refresh rate is low-key my favorite new screen feature, most people will probably care more that it doesn't have a notch or hole-punch cutout. Where the heck is the selfie camera, you might ask? For example, the camera pops up when you're taking selfies or have Face Unlock turned on. To eliminate the notch, OnePlus had to move the selfie camera into a module that extends and retracts from the top of the phone.
It's a very clever design that helps do away with the notch and increase the screen-to-body ratio, but like the pop-up cameras on other Chinese phones, its durability is questionable.
OnePlus says the pop-up camera has been tested to work for over , movements up or down. At uses a day, the pop-up camera should last about 5. That's pretty long! But what happens if you drop the OnePlus 7 Pro while the camera is extended, say, off your desk or bed? Like the Oppo Find X , the phone's gyroscope can detect that and automatically retract the camera before it hits the ground. There's no promise the camera will retract in time, though.
It really depends on the height from which the phone falls from a greater height will ensure it has time to do so. The last thing I want to highlight about the OnePlus 7 Pro's display is the in-display fingerprint reader.
These biometric sensors embedded under screens have been quite controversial because they're slower and less responsive than capacitive fingerprint readers. I even went as far to say that they're ruining a lot of new phones. But on Android phones, they are the future. And like it or not, they're probably here to stay. As such, OnePlus has greatly improved the speed and responsiveness of the optical in-display fingerprint reader on the OnePlus 7 Pro. With a 36 percent larger sensor surface area underneath the screen, OnePlus says the OnePlus 7 Pro's reader is less likely to fail to recognize your fingerprint.
