Unnecessary or not, we are now having foldable smartphones and they are surprisingly here to stay. And the foldable smartphones may or may not be quite affordable yet, but between the campy releases, year after year, the same brands with bigger screens and “enhanced”, such innovations are certainly a fresh breath of air.

But our reliable brands also had their usual flagship releases and while most of it was not surprising, it was certainly impressive. And so listed below are the top 10 flagship smartphones of the year 2019, in no particular order.

The first ROG phone was overpriced and a niche that was not exactly very mainstream. 2019 saw a massive rise in mobile gaming, particularly in India, and now triggers and attachments became a reasonable expense to the game.

LG G8s ThinQ 

LG has been coming around in the smartphone game lately by having decent features at a reasonable price, backed by the brand value of LG. LG’s 2019 flagship was late to the party by a couple of months and it didn’t have an edge over the other flagships to excuse the delay, but nevertheless in its own right, G8s Thinq definitely qualifies to be one of the flagship phones of 2019, with its iconic OLED display and a very fancy camera tech.

Oppo has had a reputation for having camera phones, and phones with a camera, that being the only highlight.
