Best 2019 Valentine's

Happy Valentine’s! And if you have someone you love and you want to get them something, I hope this list properly influences, or informs your decision. I try to always only feature smartphones I’ve used so as to give my opinion based on my experience with the device. Also, I try to have the most recent devices, so if something has been on one of this lists before, you won’t find it here today.

You’ll notice most, if not all, of these devices come with 3GB RAM, and 32GB storage. Interact with the whole list here before making a decision.


Huawei Y7 Prime 2019:


Apart from just looking great, that dewdrop notch on a 6.26 inch display is something that has quite grown on me. If you love a big screen, this is a big screen for you. But it isn’t just a big screen phone, it is manageable because software allows you to quickly use it with one hand. Also, it has the longest screen-on time of all phones in this list. I’ve personally hit over 8hrs 54mins screen-on time on a single charge. That 4000mAh battery I will say again should be the standard size going forward, because it is high time phones last thing long, and even better.

Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 Review

Check out the whole review where you can read about the skin EMUI and it’s baked-in features like dark modes, and gestures, that give you a lot more customisation and control. Also check out the camera review to see a whole collection of pictures taken using the AI cameras. I like that the AI Cameras are real, unlike I saw with the TECNO Camon 11, and recognise up to 21 different scenes.

  1. I love your well researched views
    But I just wanna know has anyone bought the nokia x5 (Nokia 5.1plus) . please tell me does it have the 28/700 band that’s compatible with faiba 4g?

  2. Thanks for the reviews and regular info. I want to know your views about the Fourmobile Shine S610. It has good specs, but how does it measure up against similar phones?

  3. Thanks for the post. Have you come across LeEco. A budget smart but with features to rival high-end devices. How else can you explain 32GB ROM, 3GB RAM, 1.8GHz octa core, 4G, SnapDragon Chipset, 16MP+8MP, 5.5″ 1080x1920px, Aluminium body, CDLA earphones, USB type-C, fingerprint reader for the x522 at only 10k give or take? 3 months using this phone and I am impressed.
