Threat! The Flagship Killers Of 2020

2020 was packed with so much tech going head-to-head and the best smartphones seemed to be way beyond what most consumers could afford. Not everyone can afford the premium flagship experience by buying the flagship smartphones themselves but there are ways around it and these ways are the following smartphones choices.

1. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is the complete package from which one gets more for less. With this device, Samsung took most of the fan- favorite or desired specs from their premium S20 series while leaving out several premium aspects of the main S20 series thus resulting in the much more affordable lowered price. It is not the best Flagship Killer by accident, this is more than worthy of the title.

Size-wise, it has a 6.5 inch Super AMOLED 120Hz display with FullHD resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The device also has an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. The difference in built material between the S20 series and the S20 FE is the material used for the rear panel. Where the S20 and S20+ used glass, the S20 FE’s rear panel is plastic.

The Galaxy S20 FE comes with an impressive triple camera system. It has two variants, a SD865 and the Exynos 990 variant of which both have a base memory of 6GB, next is the 8GB option and then tops out at 12GB RAM. The storage options start from 128GB and tops out at 256GB of UFS 3.1, there’s also the option of expandable storage via microSDXC.

Don’t worry about the battery capacity for it is powered by the same battery that is found in the Note 20 Ultra and S20 Plus i.e. the 4500mAh battery, not to forget the wireless and reverse wireless charging abilities, and an under-display fingerprint reader. There are very few smartphones that can stand against the Galaxy S20 FE especially with the price tag of $799, this is makes it the absolute flagship killer of 2020. Read More…

Here’s another Gem of a smartphone that really hits that sweet spot. It packs everything that you’d expect from a flagship, a large 5000mAh battery, Snapdragon 865 SoC, a triple camera setup with a 108MP main camera aided by a macro and ultra-wide. A smartphone built for all who would like the ultimate Mi 10 Ultra experience for much less.

With features such as faster charging at 33W with support for Power Delivery 3.0, stereo loudspeakers, faster UFS 3.1 storage starting at 128GB and topping out at 256GB and a standard 8GB RAM as the only memory option. Unlike the Galaxy S20 FE 5G, the Mi 10T Pro has a glass built both front and back.

It may have quite a few flaws such as a lack of IP68 dust and water resistance certification, wireless and reverse wireless charging, and an under-display fingerprint reader but for some these might not be much of an issue especially when you consider how much you are getting for the price. The Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro is a great choice for all looking for the flagship experience. Read More…

3. OnePlus 8T

I am pretty sure you all saw this one coming, the OnePlus 8T is no push-over in this category and will school some of the premium devices out there. At only 599 euros you get flagship features – 120Hz Fluid AMOLED, a Snapdragon 865 chip, a quad-camera with improved low-light performance, stereo speakers, 4700mAh battery and the icing on the cake- a larger battery with blazing-fast Warp Charge at 65W.

The OnePlus 8T features a 48MP primary sensor, a 16MP ultrawide camera, a 5MP macro snapper, and a 2MP depth sensor. Phase-detection, autofocus and optical image stabilization are only available on the primary camera. The device is not IP68 certified but according to GSMArena, only the T-Mobile exclusive OnePlus 8T+5G model is IP68 certified. When it comes to memory options, there is 8GB or 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM and there are two storage options of UFS 3.1 128GB or 256GB. Read More…

4. Poco F2 Pro

Don’t tell me you all forgot about this one, the Poco F2 Pro is more than worthy of a place on this list, after all it’s the only phone on the list that has absolutely no cutouts in its display and a pop-up selfie camera. It is a premiumly built device with both back and front have a glass built. Not to mention this is the first Poco to feature with a Super AMOLED display, despite it not have a higher refresh rate it simply is a gorgeous display.

The Poco F2 Pro has a 4700mAh battery to take you through your daily tasks with ease and there is also an included 33W Power Delivery 3.0-compliant charger. The phone is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset which is paired with either 6GB(LPDD4X) or 8GB(LPDDR5) of RAM and an Adreno 650. There is also UFS 3.1 storage of either 128GB or 256GB, the downside is that this is not expandable as there is no provision for expandable storage via MicroSD. There is little not to like about the Poco F2 Pro and it has more value for money too. Read more…
