Huawei P30 Pro | While the P30 Pro isn’t an obvious choice, it might just be the best on this list. The P30 Pro sports a quad-camera setup, and it might very well be the best on a smartphone if DxOMark is to be believed. While performance, display and battery life are exceptional on the P30 Pro, this phone is undoubtedly a dream for any photographer. If you’re hesitant about Huawei’s revoked Android license, the P30 Pro isn’t one of those devices which will be affected by the ban and will continue to receive Android software and security updates.

iPhone Xs Max | If you can’t get over Apple’s ecosystem or simply love iPhones, the Xs Max is the most over-the-top Apple smartphone you can buy. The Xs Max combines excellent camera quality with a beautiful display and outstanding performance. While the price of the Xs Max does seem a bit too over-the-top, if you’re an Apple user and cannot do without iOS, this is the best phone you can buy.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro | There was some debate as to the last phone on this list. And, while the Pixel 3 XL, Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition and Galaxy Note 9 were all considered, we simply had to go with the Mate 20 Pro. Undoubtedly the best device 2018 had to offer; the Mate 20 Pro uses a 7nm SoC that can easily compete with any of the 2019 handsets on our list. In terms of display, camera and battery life, the Mate 20 Pro delivers some of the best-in-class results. Now, you could wait till the end of the year for the Mate 30 Pro, but if you need a premium smartphone right now, this is definitely one of the best you can get.
