Each year, newer versions of the popular devices and gadgets come out and push the older ones to the bottom of the chart. These are precisely the sort of updates, which the tech-savvy generation of today likes to know about.
The Best Android Phones (2021)
Especially the ones concerning smartphones, the undefeatable tech-champions of the present era. So, what are the models that are expected to enter or have already arrived in the smartphone market this year? What are their pros and cons? Are they worth spending the money on or not? Read on below to find out.
Apple iPhone 12 Pro
Once you look at this smartphone, you will come to realize how classic cameras have become outdated. Apple iPhone 12 Pro is the first unique phone in its line with the ability to take portrait photos in night mode and record HDR videos in Dolby vision.
Another aspect only limited to the 12 version is its magnetic back, which you can use to attach your wallet or cardholder. Furthermore, you can make high-definition FaceTime calls with 720p resolution. However, this only works with 5G connectivity. In addition to this, the 12 Pro variant brings a complex facial recognition technology to the forefront, as a means of unlocking the phone.
A Super Retina XDR OLED panel has been incorporated in its 6.1 inches display for the first time. Its camera performs exceptionally well with a 12 megapixels front, having a dimension-catching TrueDepth sensor, and a triple-rear camera at the back, all of which are 12 MP. You can charge this phone wirelessly, by simply placing it on the apparatus.
iPhone 12 Pro’s core contains an A14 Bionic processor. Other features include an IP68 dust and water resistance, and extensive gesture service, etc. Though its minimum market price of $999 for 128GB is enough to make your jaw drop, you can get it on a cost-distributive payment plan, which almost reaches the affordability mark that you have made for your monthly budget.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G
This mobile came out a month ago and immediately became a hot-selling favorite. The Samsung Galaxy S line has traveled a long way since its first release and now, it has achieved a near-perfection in the form of this smartphone. The S21 Ultra 5G boasts a Dynamic AMOLED display, a back triple-aperture camera, IP68 dust and water-resistant shield, 5G network connectivity, the finest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 core, ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, a Bixby assistant, and up to 16 GB RAM, etc.
The most important of all features, this smartphone uses the Android 11 One UI 3.1 version, which makes it stand out. It can be purchased at a starting price of $999. You can also get this phone on installment plans by Charter Spectrum, which can be availed by all Spectrum Internet customers. In case you are not a Spectrum customer, you can always sign up for its amazing internet service, which is widely available in 44 states in the US. So, subscribe to Charter and get hold of this deal right away.
Huawei P40 Pro
This mobile has one of the best camera features to date, namely a distinctive triple layout style, which captures near-perfection shots even in the lowest of lights. In addition, you do not have to worry about its battery drainage while taking pictures, because P40 Pro is powered with a huge 4200 mAH sized battery, which is said to keep it running for at least a full day straight without charging. In addition to this, it has an AI-integrated Kirin 990 chip at its core, a goodly 6.58 inches OLED display, and software that goes beyond the usual Android.
However, there is a slight issue with its ready availability. US customers might need to head over to eBay to purchase this model.
LG V60 ThinQ 5G
Now, you might not have expected this phone to hit the hot charts, but it deserves a place on it like any other top-ranker. V60 ThinQ has almost everything like the Samsung Galaxy model, plus a bunch of cool distinctive features too.
A large interactive display of 6.8 inches, a 3.5-millimeter audio jack, the option for wireless charging, an incredible sound service, IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, and a microSD card-based infinite storage, etc. What is unique about it is that one of its rear cameras is widescreen, which allows a video capture in the Cine View style. The price of this phone is around $430 in the US market.
Sony Xperia Pro
This is another phone, which makes our list despite the overall averageness of its series. So, what is special about it? What change has made it come out of obscurity? Some say it is the fingerprint scanner at the side, others believe in its refreshing layout. I say it is both, and so many other features are included.
Xperia Pro is powered with the latest Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 chip, which makes it come up to the level of the top rankers. Other than that, it has an Android 10 version at its foundation, which is cool and shows its up-to-date-ness. All three rear-cameras are 12 megapixels strong, and resistance is IP68 rated. Internal storage is 512GB with 12GB RAM. The screen is 6.5 inches in size and tri-luminous in character. Sony has put a whopping price tag of $2500 on this smartphone.
Although there are many more wondrous competitors in the market, for now, these might suffice as the best out of the lot. With the rate at which we are progressing, we will soon be seeing newer versions of smartphones rendering this out-of-fashion because that is the way of the future, after all..
