i own pocophone and x compact but i like to experience mate 20 pro or mate 20x.the only drawback for me is that i couldnt find any nano memory for it and thats why i didnt buy it. also i bought a sandisk 400gb microsd in high price and dont like forget that and stick to 128gb mate 20 pro. i really hope huawei to stay away from nano memory in future.
Haplo, 02 Jan 2019I'm surprised some people mention Mate 20 Pro, but fail to mention P20 Pro. P20 Pro has almost... moreP20 pro image sample is over sharpness, it doesnt have 3x optic zoom, night mode, no ultra wide lens, no kirin 980, no bokeh video, no black white video, mate 20 pro has great night camersa quality..4k video supported by ois n ais, p20 not.the resolution of screen is better on mate 20 pro n many more

Because of bad experiences with samsung devices no matter how good of a feature they may introduce, im not buying... Based from experience, quality is the biggest compromise from samsung. Just go with sony or apple, best quality.
Is any reason to delete my comment?
I am only asking, why is Samsung selling two types of Note 9 for this same price. I dont care about Antutu stupidity, but seriously photos on ISOCELL/Exynos are really worst than EXMOR/Snapdragon. If Samsung want to try his hokus/pokus alchemy with CMOS, it s not correct sell it like EXMOR/Snapdragon device /same price level/. They can try it in middle range models and in the moment, when ISOCELL will be better than EXMOR just put it into new model of Note. I have NOTE 9/Exynos/Isocell EU device and when I am looking at S9/S9+ photos I feel cheated by their politics.
Omg, those are really top class picks from your editors gsmarena, bit I wonder, you guys have those devices, but why on earth cant you even make your pictures top class. I mean really its annoying im viewing this on my Honor Play and Im seeing your pictures pixelated. I mean its 2019 and your still using pics from way back, are you guys sure you got those devices, Note 9 Mate 20 Pro etc etc etc and you cant even put on some great pics from this article jezzzzzzz!

1. Huawei mate 20 pro
2. Samsung note 9
3. Google pixel xlI'm surprised some people mention Mate 20 Pro, but fail to mention P20 Pro. P20 Pro has almost everything Mate 20 does - except previous gen chipset (which still ensures silky-smooth operation) and one of its cameras is monochrome instead of wide-angle.
Oh and an excellent traditional home button finger-print scanner.
At 1/3 lower price, for me its a very easy choice.
AppleIsBest, 02 Jan 2019Best phone of year, its easy IPHONE XS MAX :)That absolutely true. No one come even close. "Oldie" iPhone X isn't far behind ;).

AppleIsBest, 02 Jan 2019Best phone of year, its easy IPHONE XS MAX :)hahahahahahhahahahahahahhahaha WTF
One Plus 6 as best phone???? You gotta be kidding me. It's the most over rated mid-ranger phone being projected as premium phone.
Why it's considered as premium phone, it has never out paced premium phone in any of parameter?
It should be compared with Honor 10, Nova, Zenfone etc.
In fact, it is mid ranger being sold at premium price. It's a open loot much more than iPhones.
I waited for the release of & considered most of the flagships mentioned here, (I nearly got the Mate 20 Pro, but was put off mainly by the EMUI, but also their NanoMemory cards & the LG 'green screen' issue on it's release), but it does deserve to be amongst the top of the list.
I also considered what didn't make it onto the Editors choice, yes Apple didn't feature probably because of the eye watering high prices, for some it doesn't matter, but for me & probably most people outside of the U.S. it does as it's even more expensive, currently in the U.K. for the XS Max:
64GB @ £1,099, 256GB @ £1,249 or 512GB @ £1,449 and then I would have to shell out for proprietary extras like a fast charging USB-C power adaptor which was £49 for the 30W, but now you can get the 18W for £29, that doesn't include the USB-C to Lightening cable though, that'll be £19 for 1m or £35 for 2m, & £9 if you want a Lightening to 3.5mm female Jack dongle.
If Apple & it's accessories were more reasonably priced, they would've sold more & made more overall profit, it'll be interesting how 2019 will pan out for them.
I got the Galaxy Note 9 512GB with a free 512GB Micro SD card for £999 on Black Friday direct from Samsung which has everything I need in the box (apart from a case & screen protector).
I did alot of research & found GSMA to be the best accurate source, so a big THANK YOU to them & also community members like Kiyasuriin, I also helped out answering questions if I knew the factual answer (including any relevant links).
I definitely made the right choice for myself, but we're all different & have different needs & preferences, this Note 9 is probably more than I need, with features like Bixby that I may never use, but it ticks all my boxes, it's all good, except I expected better macro camera shots than my S6, it seems about the same, though it's still early days for me.
I consider this phone to be the swiss army knife of the smartphone world.
I understand those saying S9+, it depends what deals are going on, I got more bang for buck with this Note9 & I'm happy with it.
Whatever phone you chose in 2018, I hope you're happy with it, I also believe that good things/ deals come to those who can wait (unless it's a good launch discount/ bundle deal ;)).
Happy hunting & Happy 2019 to you all. Peace.
