2. Huawei P30 Pro

Huawei P30 Pro is the 2019 flagship from Huawei and it comes with some mindblowing features. First, let's talk about design. On the front, we have a large 6.47 inch OLED display with Full HD+ resolution. The resolution is not Quad HD+ here but still, the display looks gorgeous with great colors, good saturation, and excellent viewing angles. The display is just very sharp and responsive and works really well. There is an in-display fingerprint sensor which works fine but it is not that fast. On the back, we have a gradient color design which is covered with glass. The colors are really nice and look very cool.

Inside the phone, there is Kirn 980 chipset which is the flagship chipset from Huawei and its performance is somewhere in between Snapdragon 845 and 855. There is a massive 256GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM. The storage can also be expanded via a MicroSD card. The hardware is very powerful and can take care of all types of heavy games and apps without any issues at all.

The camera on the back is a triple camera setup with 40MP + 20MP + 8MP sensors. The 40MP is the primary camera sensor, the 20MP is an ultra wide angle lens and 8MP is the telephoto lens with up to 5X optical zoom. Huawei has added interesting features in the camera with which you can zoom up to 50X. The front camera is a 32MP sensor and is placed inside that small dewdrop notch. The camera performance of Huawei P30 Pro is just excellent. The phone takes beautiful pictures even in low light conditions and it is safe to say that P30 Pro is the best camera smartphone as of the first half of 2019.

The battery inside the P30 Pro is 4200 mAh and the phone supports fast charging and wireless charging. A fast charger is also included in the box. The battery backup of the phone is great. You can expect it to last for 2 days with normal usage which is something we don't see on flagship devices. 

Overall, Huawei P30 Pro is a flagship which excels in every department. It has a beautiful display, it takes great pictures, the battery backup is phenomenal and internal hardware is top of the line as well. Samsung S10 Plus was our favorite phone in the under 70000 and 80000 segments but now we think P30 Pro deserves to replace it.

4. Samsung Galaxy A9

Bored of single and dual camera phones? Even triple camera phones as well? Here's a phone with Quad camera setup. The Samsung Galaxy A9 comes with 4 cameras on the back: 24MP + 5MP + 10MP + 8MP. The 24MP camera is a normal color sensor, the 10MP one is a telephoto lens which helps to zoom in without losing image quality. The 8MP lens is a wide angle lens and the 5MP sensor is a depth sensor to take portrait mode pictures with depth effect. This is one of the best and feature rich camera setup available on any smartphone as of Q4 2018. On the front, Samsung has provided a 24MP single sensor which takes nice selfies. Portrait mode is also available on the front camera. 

The Samsung A9 comes with Snapdragon 660 processor and has 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The processor is a midrange processor and you can see it on phones like Realme 2 Pro which are priced under 15000. So the processor is a bit disappointing. Samsung should have gone with at least Snapdragon 710 for this phone which is priced above 35000 as of launch. 

The battery is nice 3800 mAh which will last for a day with heavy usage and 1.5 days with low to medium usage. The display is 6.3 inches large Super AMOLED panel and looks gorgeous. AMOLED displays are also power efficient which means it will help in improving battery life. 

Overall, Samsung Galaxy A9 is a phone for those who need a great camera phone under 40000. For everyone else, LG G7 and OnePlus 6T are better options and give a proper flagship experience.

5. Apple iPhone XS

The Apple iPhone XS is the successor of last year's iPhone X and comes with same design and minor improvements. The new iPhone XS looks just like the X. On the front, we still have the notch which houses the front camera and FaceID hardware. The dual camera is placed on the rear. The phone has a glass sandwich design and is built very well. The phone looks and feels very premium which is something you would expect from a device which costs around 1 Lac.

The display on the iPhone XS is 5.8 inches large and is one of the best panels available. It is very vibrant with rich colors and good saturation levels. It is a gorgeous display to look at. 

The iPhone XS is powered by the latest and greatest Apple A12 Bionic chipset. Apple A series chipset is way ahead of the best chipsets available for Android phones. The chip is built on 7nm process technology and provides great performance with good power efficiency. The RAM is 4GB which is enough to handle the multitasking and heavy games. On storage side we have 3 options: 64GB, 256GB and 512GB. Performance wise this is one of the best and you won't face any issues no matter how heavy the game is or how many apps are you switching. 

The iPhone XS comes with a 12MP+12MP dual camera at the back and 7MP camera at the front. The secondary camera on the rear is a telephoto lens which helps to zoom into the subject without losing image quality. The performance of both front and rear cameras is great. The pictures look great with plenty of details, good colors, and saturation. The portrait mode pictures look excellent with a natural looking blur/bokeh.

The iPhone XS is a dual sim device which is a good change done by Apple. The battery is a 2658 mAh which is almost the same as last year's iPhone X. The battery backup is great because of the optimizations are done by Apple. The iPhone XS supports fast charging and wireless charging but doesn't have a fast charger or wireless charger inside the box. The charger that comes with the phone is very slow and takes around 3 hours to charge which is disappointing. 

If you like Apple's closed ecosystem and can afford to spend around 1 lac on a new phone then go for iPhone XS. It is a great phone and the best you can get.

6. Google Pixel 3 XL

If you are looking for the best Android Phone and best camera phone available as of Q4 of 2018 or 2019 as well, then Google Pixel 3 XL is for you. The Pixel 3 XL is a lot like last year's Pixel 2 XL which was the best camera smartphone before Pixel 3 XL launched. The bezels on the bottom have reduced but still, they are big compared to modern smartphones. Plus, there is a massive notch at the top where you can land an airplane. The back of the phone is made of glass and has a coating 80% of it and the top part is shiny. Design wise, Pixel 3 XL looks fine and there's nothing great about it. The notch might be irritating at first but you will get used to it. 

The display panel is 6.3 inches large and has a resolution of Quad HD+. The display is one of the best available in the market with rich colors and great viewing angles. The high resolution ensures that everything looks very crisp and sharp.

The Pixel 3 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 64/128GB of storage. Pixel 3 runs on Stock Android Pie 9.0 which is the latest version of Android as of November 2018. Powerful hardware and clean software mean that the performance of this smartphone is one of the best in the Android segment. You can switch between multiple apps and play heavy games at the highest setting and this phone will handle them like a champ. 

The camera is the USP of the Pixel 3 XL. There is a 12.2MP camera on the rear and a dual 8MP+8MP setup on the front. The numbers aren't that fancy but the performance is. Pixel 3 XL is the best camera smartphone you can get. Even with it's a single rear camera sensor it beats the phones like iPhone XS in all types of conditions. The portraits mode shots also look crisp with excellent edge detection. The front selfie camera takes excellent pictures as well. 

The battery of Pixel 3 is 3430 mAh and supports fast charging. The phone comes with an 18W fast charger inside the box which will charge the phone in less than 2 hours. Plus, there is support for Wireless charging as well. The Pixel is waterproof and dustproof and is IP68 rated which means you don't have to worry about using your phone in rain or even in the shower.

Pixel 3 XL is a single sim device and doesn't support MicroSD cards as well so keep that in mind before buying it. 

Overall, Pixel 3 XL is a solid camera phone. The display is gorgeous and the design is nice. The performance is great as well. It is a bit expensive though. But if you can afford it and need the best Android and camera experience then Pixel 3 XL is for you.

7. LG G7+ ThinQ

LG G7+ ThinQ is LG's flagship phone of 2018 and it comes with a beautiful design and powerful hardware. LG has aggressively priced it in India and it competes with OnePlus 6. The display on the G7+ is a 6.1-inch panel with Quad HD+ resolution. No other phone offers Quad HD+ resolution at this price. The display is very sharp with great color reproduction.

The wide-angle lens lets you capture a lot more as compared to the standard lens. If you are taking a group shot, the wide angle lens would come handy. Also, the wide aperture helps to gather more light and improves the low light performance. It also uses AI to detect scenes and change settings accordingly. Overall, it is a great camera phone.

The battery inside the phone is just 3000mAh so you can expect a day of backup with it. Other features include, IP68 rating which means you don't have to worry about water or dust.
