1. OnePlus 7

OnePlus 7 is the 2019 variant of OnePlus flagship series smartphone which was launched along with OnePlus 7 Pro. OnePlus 7 has a dewdrop notch design and comes with a 6.41-inch AMOLED display. Undoubtedly, the display is best in the price range with punchier colors and is bright in outside light. 

It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor which has a massive AnTuTu score of 362000. OnePlus 7 is available on Amazon in 2 variants, it has 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage and an 8 GB RAM variant with 256 GB storage. Here the storage is UFS 3.0 instead of the UFS 2.1 seen in most of the smartphones. This upgrade makes the performance further smooth and it is the only phone along with OnePlus 7 Pro to come with UFS 3.0

For the camera, OnePlus 7 has a 48 MP Sony IMX sensor and a 5 MP depth sensor for portrait shots and for the selfie, it has a 16 MP sensor. The images are sharp having perfect colors and cover a lot of details. In low light conditions, the camera takes some time to focus and has some pixelation on the zooming. But overall in the day to day usage, this OnePlus 7 captures great images and the camera app has good features. The video supports OIS and can capture 4K at 60 fps.

You get Oxygen OS for the software which is based on Android Pie and has useful customizations and features. Coming to the battery capacity, we have a 3700 mAh powerhouse with a 20 W fast charger. 100 percent charging gets completed in around 70 minutes and offers around more than 1-day backup. However, one con is that the phone does not have a headphone jack.

At under 35000, OnePlus 7 is the best smartphone you can get.

Black Shark 2 is the gaming-centric smartphone which comes with a 6.39 inch AMOLED display. The display is an important part for gaming and this display is bright, has perfect colors and a good refresh rate. The build quality is very solid and sturdy. The design is unique compared to other phones seen with glass back design in under 40000 price range. The design gives a gaming feel and is certainly suitable for every gamer.

It does not have a notch design and has bezels to maintain a solid design flow. To further extend your impressive experience, there are RGB light strips which produce colors combination and dance to the effect on the game. The touch response is enhanced with low latency that significantly improves your gaming performance.

The battery is rated at 4000 mAh with a Type C fast charging. It can give a backup of around 1 day based on your usage. Sadly the black shark 2 smartphone does not have a headphone jack so if you are playing with controllers, you only have the option of Bluetooth headphones. 

The phone has liquid cooling to keep the temperature of the smartphone in check. It helps keep the phone less heated while you are in a gaming session. The phone is slightly bulky but a gamer would surely enjoy the feel it comes with.

Overall, it is an overkill smartphone with a focus on performance and gaming. If you are looking for an under 40000 smartphone with solid quality, best gaming experience, this Black Shark 2 can be your top choice.

OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a very impressive 6.67-inch fluid AMOLED display which is bright and one of the best screen in a smartphone. It is powered with Snapdragon 855 processor which is again one of the best processors in the smartphone market. 

The OnePlus 7 Pro comes in 3 variants with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage and  8 GB, and 12 GB RAM along with 256 GB storage. The performance is simply brilliant and can handle anything you throw at it. Multitasking and playing heavy games is very smooth.

The camera is not the best out in the market especially with Pixel 3A focussing especially on the camera.

The battery has a 4000 mAh capacity and supports WARP30 charging to quickly charge the phone. The battery easily gives a backup of at least one full day and 1.5 days with medium to light usage. It has Oxygen operating system which is very close to the stock Android.

Overall, OnePlus 7 Pro is an amazing smartphone with beautiful looks, gorgeous display, excellent performance, and decent cameras. It would be safe to say that this is the best smartphone you can get under Rs. 50000 in India.

4. Google Pixel 3A XL

Google Pixel 3A XL is not a very impressive smartphone especially when it comes to the processor. In other departments, the phone fairs well depending on what a user is looking from a phone. Pixel 3A XL has a 6 inch Full HD Plus OLED display with a similar polycarbonate styled body as seen on the Pixel 3A. In terms of looks, there is no notch and it has a bezel-less type design. 

The processor used is the Snapdragon 670 which is surely not the way to go for a phone in the price range of budget flagship. It has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage which cannot be expanded further. Overall the phone works smoothly for day to day tasks but does not have the best hardware for high multitasking or running multiple heavy games.

But contrary to everything, Pixel 3A XL outsmarts every other phone with its camera quality. There is a 12.2 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front camera and the image quality is truly amazing. You get detailed pictures with great low light shots.

For the battery, there is 3700 mAh battery which can easily take you through the day and there is an 18W fast charger which can be given a backup of 6 to 7 hours in just 15 minutes of charge. From the software side, you get the latest Android Pie with 3 years of regular updates of OS and security patches.

If you have a budget of under 50000 and are looking for a smartphone with a great camera, clean software but are not much concerned in terms of processor, then you can look for Pixel 3A XL as an option.

5. 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.

7. 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.

8. 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.
