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.


Infinix Note 5:


If you love Android One devices, here’s an option for you. Infinix is sending out Android Pie anytime soon. I really loved using this phone, though if I were to compare it with the Y7 Prime above I’d say the latter has way better battery life. I guess it is either Infinix’s choice of processor, or the fact that stock Android doesn’t have aggressive power saving mechanisms like EMUI that affects battery life.

Infinix Note 5 Review: The Best Note to date

The display on this device is superb. I think this is the only phone in this list that I’ve used that features a 1080p screen at this price point. I was happy with the company choosing to go Android One with this line, and I cannot wait for the next one. Read my review and see what I really like.

  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.
