Looking for a new phone (UK and contract based)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone

So I am due a new contract and I am looking at springing for a high end phone as I spend most of my time on that these days.

 

So let me list my usage

Netflix (offline)

YouTube (both offline and off, I want to download high quality videos and would like to hit higher resolution)

Games (paid premium games and android emulators like retroarch)

Heavy web browsing

Emails, texts, WhatsApp 

Heavy picture taking (mostly family pictures)

Google music (i use both Bluetooth for car and hd300 for headphones)

 

There maybe more but that's the important things

 

I think I want to stay with android because I have so much stuff with my account and im not sure about emulators on iPhone.

What phone would you recommend, again I want a high end phone with excellent performance and good battery life when it's not doing much, an excellent screen for my content watching and is HDR possible?

I'm leaning towards s9+ even though I don't normally like samsung.

 

Suggestions

 

Many thanks

The flagships that matter this generation are the S9+ and the P20/Pro. I'd personally go for the P20 Pro, for the 3x optical zoom.

I have a P20 and I mainly use it for phone calling and heavy browsing and I gotta say the battery lasts quite long.

EDIT: Oh and the camera is pretty good imo

Is the OnePlus 6 worth mentioning?

If so... it would be my recommendation :) 

While it was on my list my local stores don't seem to have it at all (we have quite a few stores here also lol)
