Xiaomi Redmi Note 5
The best smartphone at less than 200 euros
We start our Top Smartphones 2019 with the low cost model that broke the screen this year. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 overflows most of the tests of specialists, thanks to its particularly large and pleasant screen (18: 9 format), good quality photos and tireless battery. From an aesthetic point of view, this Chinese smartphone offers a clean façade, bright colors and a surprisingly slender design for a mobile so voluminous. Even the photos are of quality: the Xiaomi takes clichés good the day and correct at night. Technical qualities quite amazing for a smartphone less than 200 euros that make it one of the best deals on the market.

The best for the professional world
Since its appearance under the TCL flag, the BlackBerry brand is experiencing a real revival. With Key2, the Canadian manufacturer capitalizes on what made its success past. Far from current standards with 18: 9 screen, the smartphone shares its front face between a 3: 2 ratio screen and a physical keyboard. The latter is undoubtedly both his greatest strength and his greatest weakness. Fans will find a comfortable and responsive keyboard. But the regulars of the virtual keyboard may be quite confused at first. It’s the BlackBerry key! Like its predecessors, this model remains resolutely oriented towards professional uses, with nearly two days of autonomy. Among the Key2 options, a sidebar provides shortcuts to calendar information, favorite contacts, and the call list. As for the application DTEK, she is always turned towards security, allowing to have a constant eye on the level of security of her smartphone.

The best for autonomy and the load
If its design is not revolutionary, the OnePlus 6 is distinguished by a superb 6.28-inch OLED screen with a very discreet notch, as the “notch” of the iPhone X but smaller. There is the speaker, the camera and the light sensor. The OnePlus remains on a Full HD + definition (2280 x 1080 pixels), which remains sufficient, even on such a diagonal. Finesse display and maximum brightness even allow use in full sun. But the criterion that makes the difference is the autonomy of this mobile, which reaches more than ten hours of varied use, including games. Another impressive option, recharge probably offers the most efficient fast charge on the market (30 minutes to go from 15 to 75%). As a result, when a smartphone is so long and charging as fast, you do not have to plug it in at night. A small charge of half an hour in the morning, during breakfast, is enough to hold the day.

Huawei P20 Pro
The best quality / price ratio in the high end
With this model, Huawei comes to play in the high-end category even if its P20 Pro remains cheaper than the
Samsung Galaxy S9 + or iPhone X. Optimization is at the top, including a Full HD + definition that offers a full two days of autonomy for standart use, a score that places it in the leading pack of high-end smartphones . His camera, even if it is not as revolutionary as announced by the
manufacturer, of very good quality. Adding a well-calibrated Oled display, modern design and excellent graphics performance, this P20 Pro is one of the best smartphones of the year in the high-end mobile category.

The best for photo and video
We continue our Top Smartphones 2019 with the Galaxy S9. No break in design with these S9 and SE +, which have a similar face to the S8 of last year. Curved screens without XXL edge, Super Amoled slab in 5.8 or 6.2 inches depending on the model … Always as elegant. Only novelty, the footprint sensor has been moved to be integrated under its backside photo equipment. A photo technology on which Samsung put big and that makes the difference, since it is possible to open the diaphragm according to two options. The f: 2.4 mode is reserved for well-lit shots (outdoors, landscapes, etc.), while the aperture at f: 1.5 excels for poorly lit shots by providing light for the sensor. A real record for a mobile. Note that both models also include a super slow motion mode amounting to 960 frames per second. Not far from the top if your preference is for photography and video.
