The Black Friday sale is just around the corner. Smartphones have always been a prime target for these sales. But apart from the savings, you'll be getting from buying smartphones on sale. You also have to consider its overall performance and camera. Here's a handy guide on the best mobile phones you could get your hands on this 2019 Black Friday sale.

Apple iPhone 11 / Pro / Pro Max

Performance

As always, the latest iPhones perform really well in terms of speed—in a vacuum. But the OS that comes with it is mired with lots of bugs and memory issues. It's not hard for Apple to fix these along the way, but in its current state, the iOS13 makes the iPhone 11 clunky and buggy.

Camera

The latest iPhones' cameras are underwhelming, sporting only 12MP in all of its versions. The Pro versions do come with ultrawide and telephoto options, but the cameras they have don't hold a candle against its competition. Where the iPhone shines is how the smartphones process its images, and somehow the iPhone 11 series make their images look good in spite of the 12MP cameras they come in.

Best Version

Being at least $300 cheaper than the other options, iPhone 11 is the most practical choice between the three. However, if you're particular about the telephoto and ultrawide options, the iPhone 11 Pro should suffice.

Samsung Galaxy S10 / S10e / S10+

Performance

Samsung's latest smartphone runs on Snapdragon 855 in all versions, delivering a consistent experience across the three. Out of all flagship devices, the S10 stands out as the most feature-complete. However, their prices also reflect this.

Camera

The S10 and S10+ both have wide, ultrawide, and telephoto options, with the S10e skipping out on telephoto. However, the camera isn't really the S10's strong suit—falling behind in the competition against its competitors. Skip this one if you want to have the perfect selfie.

Best Version

The Galaxy S10's three different versions don't really differ much except for size. Performance is the same across the board, so the decision falls down on your size preference. If you want the one that will comfortably sit in your pocket, the S10e is your best bet.

Google Pixel 4 / 4 XL

Performance

We're once again looking at a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, which tells us that the Google Pixel 4 will be able to run all your apps without a problem. There's really not much going on with the new Pixel, and Google had hoped that the phone's Motion Sense feature would be enough to carry the flag. It's obviously not.

Camera

Google is one step behind when it comes to photography. The Pixel 4 sports the weakest selfie camera in this list, with only 8MP. At the back, it has a 12MP main camera and a 16MP telephoto camera. Unlike the other phones in this list, Google Pixel 4 lacks an ultrawide mode.

Best Performance

Just like the S10, the difference between Pixel 4 and 4 XL is the size. The Pixel 4 XL looks better with its 1440x3040-pixel resolution, but it's not the best-looking display in the market. Costing just $100 below the iPhone, you should consider twice before getting yourself a Pixel.

OnePlus 7 / Pro / 7T

Performance

All three variations of the OnePlus7 come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 (with the 7T sporting the 855+ version). This makes the OnePlus 7 one of the strongest mobile phones this year in terms of processing speed.

Camera

OnePlus 7T is also your choice if you're going for more options with your camera. However, if you're not too keen on using telephoto and wide-angle shots, the OnePlus 7 would do. All three variations offer the same 48MP main camera with 16MP selfie cameras.

Best Version

The latest of the three, the OnePlus 7T has the best features, best displays with 90Hz refresh rate, and offers a competitive price that makes it lacking a headphone jack a bit forgivable. 

Among all the brands mentioned in this article, the OnePlus 7 series offers the most features at the cheapest price—all for the major setback of not having a headphone jack.
