In the early 00s, there was a trend for making tech smaller and smaller. Nowadays, it’s all about making the most of your technology, and for smartphones, this has led to a trend of bigger and bigger phones. Your phone is no longer just your phone, it’s also your laptop, your main source of entertainment and your window to the world. If you’re planning to upgrade and want more bang for your buck, here are some of the best large smartphones money can buy in 2018.
I am personally a huge fan of my big phone. Its perfect for my blogging world of video, pictures and constant social media. I have the S9 plus and the pictures are incredible, here is short review of each of the current big phones available.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
The Samsung Galaxy range has been an industry leader for nearly a decade. Their latest addition to the pack features a meaty 6.2-inch screen and an impressive 6GB of RAM. You’ll have plenty of storage space whether you choose the 64GB version or the 128GB version. Like all Samsung phones, it runs on the Android network, which means seamless integration with your Google life.
Huawei P20 Pro
Arguably the best smartphone Huawei has ever made, this relatively new release boasts an impressive camera which performs well in low light. You’ll be able to see your pictures in great detail on the 6.1-inch screen and enjoy 128GB of storage as standard.
LG G7 ThinQ
If you want to return to the days of listening to music blasted from a phone, you’re in luck as LG decided to bring this feature back on the LG G7 ThinQ. You’ll also enjoy a 6.1-inch screen, 64GB or 128GB of storage and an ultra-bright display.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8
If you like to get a lot of work done on your phone, or if you like to use it as an entertainment device while on the go, you can’t go wrong with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. With an incredible 6.3 inch screen and attractive infinity display, it’s difficult to beat for entertainment. However, the iconic S Pen Stylus is what sets this phone apart from the competition and makes it the ideal solution for the busy business person.
Google Pixel 2
This powerful palm-sized phone might be smaller than others on the list with a 5-inch screen, but don’t let that put you off. The Android operating system is seamless and intuitive while the camera is ideal for capturing the moment. Because it’s made by Google, you can expect it to fit seamlessly into your life, and you can even delegate tasks to the OK Google assistant.
The aim of the latest iPhone was to create something that is all screen, and they certainly succeeded. With a 5.8-inch Super Retina display and a 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio, it’s the most stunning screen experience yet. Unlike old iPhones, the thought of a delicate screen to smash is something left behind in the past. The iPhone X is the most durable yet, with surgical grade stainless steel, durable glass and water and dust resistant features.
Tethered Vs Untethered Phones
The big debate at the moment is to whether you should purchase an untethered phone or choose one which is locked to a network. Ultimately, if you can find a good deal locked to a network but want to keep your existing phone number, the process is a lot easier than you’d think. For example, if you’re with O2, you would simply find the right O2 contact numbers and request your PAC code to allow you to take your number with you to your new network provider. No need to let your network provider hold you back from choosing the upgrade that you really want!
