According to data collected from our customers, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus comes in at number nine. Samsung have delivered a smartphone that lives up to the phrase ‘bigger is better’.

Samsung have taken the features that everyone loves and compiled them together to produce a device with a cracking camera, a whopping 128GB of internal storage and an increased RAM of 12GB.

So, what features do we love the most?

Display:

Larger than its older sibling, the Galaxy S20, the S20 plus sports an impressive 6.7-inch Quad HD+ display, powered by Dynamic AMOLED technology.

This makes it the perfect smartphone to download and stream video content and games on the go. The combination of the screen size and the display gives its users a unique cinematic-like experience.

Camera:

If you’re eager to unleash your inner Ansel Adams, then this phone is the one for you. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus is equipped with a quad camera set up, making it one of the best mobile phones for photography on the market.

It features a 64-megapixel Telephoto Camera, a 12-megapixel Wide-Angle camera and a 12-megapixel Ultra-Wide camera. To top all of this off, Samsung threw in an additional Depth Vision camera, for those shots where you really want to see the detail.

If you’re the sort of person who is fussy when it comes to choosing a picture to upload to your social media, the new Single Take feature is perfect for you.

It lets you capture a bunch of photos in a short burst, applying different styles so that you can choose your favourite. Samsung didn’t stop there; they have boosted their Night Mode using fancy software enhancements.

This means that even at night, you can use your Galaxy S20 Plus to capture impressive and clear shots without any worry – be it the memories of Bonfire Night or a quick snap of that friendly hedgehog who visits your garden at night.

5G:

One of the key selling points to the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus is the fact that it is equipped with 5G. This means that you can upload and download content in an instant.

Live streaming and sharing have never been so fast, and gaming has never had fewer interruptions. When looking at 5G vs. 4G, it is easier to see the difference when we compare the speeds. With 4G a movie can take up to 50 minutes to download.

With 5G, it would only take 9 minutes to download – saving you a whopping 41 minutes download time. As for music, instead of several minutes to download a full album, with 5G it only takes ten seconds!

We are creeping up the list now, almost at number one. But we can’t ignore number two, with the impressive iPhone SE.

This device gives you a taste of what Apple has to offer, without the hefty price tag. With a stunning performance, a cracking camera and a sleek design – this phone is perfect for everything you need.

For the price you pay, this phone is one of the best iPhones you could get. With the same processor as the iPhone 11 Pro, the iPhone SE is unbelievably fast and efficient.

Intelligent power management takes full advantage of the available power – meaning you could get forty hours of music playback from one single charge! There has been some competition in this list for the top spot, so here’s why this phone almost made it as the winner.

Camera:

Apple are known for being profound with their camera tricks and skills, but the iPhone SE has the best single-lens camera to ever be seen on an iPhone. Using the A13 Bionic chip, this phone delivers flawless photos and videos.

The lower price doesn’t mean that you can’t get creative, with portrait mode, you can add an arty touch by blurring out the background – putting all eyes on the subject.

How focused you want your subject is all controlled by you as the Depth Control comes equipped with a slider, so you can control the amount of background blur. As if this alone didn’t give professional vibes, Portrait Lighting gives you the choice of six lighting effects giving your photos the studio-look finish.

The various lighting effects give different lighting intensity, so you never have to worry about good lighting again. You should expect calls to go photograph weddings!

How many times have you caught yourself saying, “I wish I got that on video”?

Well, with this iPhone and its QuickTake, you can instantly switch to video recording by holding the shutter – so you never miss those golden video opportunities.

Your video won’t disappoint either, with 4K video you get 4x more detail than standard 1080p HD video, giving you an Oscar-worthy end-product!

Design and display:

Despite this device being sleek and compact in design, Apple have still somehow managed to pack everything you need and more into it.

The 4.7-inch screen delivers a truly stunning resolution with HD at 326 pixels per inch. For you, this means that your favourite shows, and films are shown in immense detail.

Apple want to cater for you. They want you to be able to kick back and relax with your phone, no matter what environment you’re in. Be it laid in bed, on the train or out and about, with True Tone technology, the screen on the iPhone SE adjusts to the world around you.

The smartphones on the market now seem to be in competition with one another, who can be the biggest or the heaviest. But the iPhone SE is proof that bigger isn’t always better. The first thing you will notice when you pick up this phone is how lightweight it is.

For all the amazing things that come with this phone, you would expect it to weigh a ton. However, this desirable design is far more practical and elegant looking – and even better, there are three stunning colours to choose from: red, black and white.

Final thoughts:

The iPhone SE thoroughly deserves its spot at number two. This phone has everything you could need packed into one sleek compact device.

From the best single-lens camera produced by apple and its insane battery life, to its futuristic True Tone technology, you are really getting the full package. And despite having the same processor as the new iPhone 11 Pro, you are paying a ridiculously low price!

Apple have given you selfie lovers a feature too – with the TrueDepth front camera, you can capture slo-mo action at 120fps. This means your selfies will be art gallery worthy.

If you’re a night owl, the night mode setting makes shooting in the dark a piece of cake, and as it automatically turns on in low light, you will never miss a photo opportunity!

One unique thing about this phone, is that the feature doesn’t require flash which means the photos are swarmed with natural colours – no more ghostly looking flash faces.

Display and design:

The size of the iPhone 11 screen is impressive in itself. With a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina LCD screen, everything you watch will look flawless, with true-to-life colours and detail.

And like other iPhone models, the iPhone 11 is equipped with True Tone Technology, meaning the screen automatically adjusts to the colour temperature of the light around you.

So, if other iPhone’s have this feature, why has this one made it to number one? This iPhone has unbelievable screen technology, including the Haptic Touch which makes for a super responsive display.

You can do all of your favourite things, super-fast with quick and long taps to open menus and shortcuts. The screen design includes a notch at the top for the selfie camera, which is used to recognise your face.
