    Honestly I want a fast phone with a 3 camera setup on the side going down headphone jack 4000mAh battery with 1 TB 64 128 or 512 gigs of storage not 32gigs of storage SD card slot thumbprint scanner can be in the phone or in the back doesn't matter wireless charging really great cameras like huawei comes in multiple colours including red great software so basically the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus with 1tb storage or the Asus Rog phone with attachments

    Guys, I still can't decide whether to get Zenfone 6 or s9+. I'm thinking the s9+ because of the water protection and Amoled display.🤔

    These are such a great phones but being as a citizen of developing country I figured out iphones are best they last for long time still I notice people using 4 to 5s and work fine better than galaxy note 3 4 and I'm thinking too get used iPhone 7 too xr in a reasonable price

    Yes I love Asus more than other mobile phone Brand's in the market today, because even the old once are keep on updated. I used now Zenfone 5z and I update once and waiting the Android Q and it's amazing.. mid-range phone.

    @Dave Lee, Why you not add One Plus 7, its a complete package.

  • David Martrano
    David Martrano Před 19 dny

    Dave, I use the s10+ and I gave my s9+ to my wife. In my opinion the 9+ at it's price is the best of the lot. If you can purchase for five hundred bucks it's an excellent price. It's the swiss army knife of all 5models your discussing. It does everything quite well. Especially the display. Great review to help people chose!

    Current phone HTC One M9 thinking of getting the top of the line 8GB RAM Zenfone 6, but also thinking of the OP7Pro because I can get it (8GB RAM) with T-Mobile for $360+tax love the beast battery and being a little different by supporting Asus, but OnePlus is pretty darn good and the Pixel 4 is coming around the corner. Should I wait or pull the trigger?

    What's your opinion on the Samsung s10e exynos version?
    I can find it now at 480€
    Or should I spent 100€ more for the s10?
    Do I miss a lot?!

      @6 A.M IN GOTHAM yes but I think it's the snapdragon version.
      In Europe we have the exynos one and although it's a good CPU I've heard that it has some issues with the battery life when compared to the Snapdragon!
      Thank you by the way 😁

    Why nobody talks about the LG V35 ThinQ? It's perfection:
    SnapDragon 845.
    6 gb of RAM.
    6 inch P-Oled screen.
    Headphone jack.
    No notch or drop.
    Micro SD slot.
    All that for $339 USD.

    Not sure why you added a $550 phone. Should've said under $600 then. Shouldn't have threw OP a bone like that. Made video Less respectable.

    I got the Razer phone 2 for 399. But it's so bad. It's froze on me at least 1 time per night. Last time it froze it was 7 times back to back to back. Now I'm returning it and getting the Samsung s10+.

      If you can push your budget Samsung s10e would be a great choice, and if you do go with the iPhone 7 it will receive updates for another 2 or 3 years

      $500 would've been fair honestly especially at this point especially since its competing with s/s9+ which is arguably better in most ways that can be found new from best buy or amazon sometimes from $400-600
