With the recent Black Friday sales 2020 on the rage, everyone is looking to buy new smartphones so that they can save those few extra bucks. But, the main problem is which one should you get?

Smartphones are modern-day tools that almost none can live without. Like back in the days, hammer and chisel were the tools that were of utmost importance to have in one's arsenal; smartphones hold a similar important value. Just 20 years ago, the most a phone could do was make a call and receive an SMS. Still, now you can do much more than just making calls, from sending emails, watching movies, and using social media to contact various people instantaneously, are only to name a few. In fact, the phone currently you are using while reading this, or the phone present in your pocket is more powerful than the computer used to send the first person on the moon!

How to select the best?

When it comes to which one is the best in the business, it is hard to narrow it down. With many small companies growing each day and trying to compete in the market with all the major veterans that have been here for more than a decade, it is hard to decide which one you should get.

Many companies, like Samsung, and Apple, are considered the pioneers of the smartphone industry. They make a new model of their mainline smartphone brand each year, equipped with new dazzling features that leave the person astonished. But those new features come with a price, and a hefty one indeed! And now, new companies like Huawei, Oppo, and Vivo break the glass by providing the same features, if not better and advance, at a very reasonable and affordable price.

The Best in the Business:

For many, the budget is a very troublesome corner these days, and if you want the best in the market, you need to spend the top-notch dollar to get one. But if budget is not a problem for you and you are someone who wants the best the market has to offer, regardless of the price tag, then two companies, Samsung and Apple, are the way to go.

Samsung has some of the best phones in the market. From Samsung Note 20, the phone that is bleeding in all the new tech that has been built into, to the world's most slim foldable smartphone, the Samsung Z flip, and not to mention the infamous Samsung S20, with its astonishing 108-megapixel 8k camera. All of these models are, of course, heavily priced depending on the model that you are buying. (Each model of the phone has individual variation and little less priced budget options)

But if you prefer to have more security and want a little change from android, then Apple is definitely for you. With its latest model, the iPhone 12, recently hitting the market, you are giving yourself a treat with the all-new 5g built into it. And who doesn't know about the very famous camera of the iPhones providing perhaps the best picture quality out of all the market smartphones? The interface of IOS (only used in apple products) is unique and user friendly. But all of that also comes at the expense of big fortune. In general, Apple products are considered one of the most heavily priced products globally, whether it be their apple watch or the iPhones. So, buying one can easily break the bank for you.

The Best for the Buck:

But if you are someone, who is not a big fan of the most expensive in the market but still desires something sufficiently good, then don't worry, the market has plenty to offer that too.

Samsung has many premium phones discussed previously, but it also has many mid-range phones with very attractive and unique features. The A series of Samsung has some of the top-notch phones, like A71 and A51, equipped with many features, like an on-screen fingerprint sensor, full-screen display, that some of Samsung's premium models have. But if you are down on budget, then Samsung also has some of the much lower models, like Samsung A20s, A30s, A11, that are also pretty decent phones to use with a much lower price tag.

Next are a few less known brands (Although now they are starting to be very prominent in the last couple of years), including Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, and many others. Although it is technically incorrect to call them a lesser of any sort, since these brands have exploded in the market for the past few years and have shown that to get the best, you don't necessarily need to empty your banks. Although they have many premium models, they are still not as pricey as those mentioned previously.

The Honor series of Huawei has shown many promises, with many top-notch features, like gorilla glass display, ultra-zoom, and wide-angle angled cameras, equipped within those phones. Other Huawei phones like the most famous Huawei P20 Pro, which has the world's first triple Leica camera, and the mid-range phones of the Y series, have grown to many prominences since the last couple of years.

The same can be said for Oppo and Vivo. Both brands have some of the best budget phones, and not only that, but they also have many well-built premium phones that have many unique features, like ultra-fast charging, amazing battery life, and many more!

Which one should you get?

It can be very hard to decide when it comes to which one you should get. With so many brands right now in the market and so many emerging every day, each providing so many different options, it becomes an increasingly hard decision.

In the end, you need to outweigh the price tag of the phone, with the features that you want, and decide based on your needs. A 100-megapixel camera won't do you any good if you are that person that only captures a single photo in a year. So in the end, with so many options in the market, you should decide which one you want based on your needs, your budget, and of course your usage.
