When you want to buy a new smart watch then you want to look at the battery life, recharge time, features, apps, compatibility with you current smartphone and if the smart watch is swimproof.

What functions can you expect in a Smartwatch in 2019?

The latest smart watches have made a big step forward compared to their earlier versions. The cpu and speed/easiness to smoothly switch between functions and Bluetooth connection with the phone have improved. Also the apps and the screen quality are much better with Always-On Retina display/30% larger screen/sAMOLED display and more internal mem. Also the battery life has improved to up to 4 days with the Samsung Galaxy.

Apple vs Android smart watches

Most comparisons between the latest Apple and for example Samsung smart watches are overblown. Both are very good smart watches. The one you want to buy depends mostly on the smart phone you or the person you want to give the smart watch to as a gift has. When you have an Apple smartphone you have the choice between an Apple Smart watch or an Android/iOS smartwatch but it is normally good advise to stick with the brand smartphone you have to avoid compatibility problems. The Android smart watches are usually less expensive than the Apple smart watches.

Best Apple Smart Watch: Series 5

The best Apple smart watch is by far the new Series 5 Apple smart watch. It has the following features: GPS + Cellular, Always-On Retina display, 30% larger screen, it is Swim proof, it has an ECG app and electrical and optical heart sensors. Also handy are the built-in compass and elevation and the Emergency SOS/ International emergency calling. This is the latest Apple smartwatch. Apple has updated the specs greatly from the Series 4. The battery life is around 18 hours, which is shorter than the Samsung Galaxy 2019.

In my opinion this is the best Apple smartwatch you can get at the moment. You get all this for a very good price under $600 at the time of writing this post. When looking at price-quality and value for money this Series 5 is my choice for ‘best Apple smart watch 2019’.

Best Android Smart Watch: Samsung Galaxy Smart Watch

The Samsung Galaxy smartwatch has a 1.3 Inch sAMOLED 360x 360 display and a 1.15 GHz Dual-Core processor with 0.75GB RAM 4GB internal storage memmory, the latest 2.4GHz Bluetooth v4.2 and a battery life that lasts up to 4 days. The watch has multiple sensors like an Accelerometer, Barometer, Gyro Sensor, HR Sensor and Light Sensor. Because this watch is much less costly than the Apple watch you get more value for money. The Samsung Galaxy below is less than $400 at the time of writing this review. Especially because of the value for money, the long battery life and the great looks this Samsung Galaxy smart watch is in my opinion the best Android smart watch this Christmas 2019.

Galaxy S4Nov/Dec 2019. The Best Prepaid Smartphones 2019! A prepaid smartphones makes a very good Christmas gift! On this site I have made a selection of the best prepaid smartphones available. There are many reliable brands and affordable phones to choose from. Because I only use my phone sporadically to make a phone call a budget prepaid smartphone is the best option for me. I use internet and social media only when there is wifi available. For many people buying a good prepaid smartphone has several advantages over a smartphone or mobile phone with service plan. First of all: It is a smartphone with No Contract. No monthly payments when you don’t use your smartphone. You pay upfront so you are always in control how much you spent. No contract with monthly fees, no surprises.

#1) Best Prepaid Smartphone 2019: Samsung Galaxy S4 4G

The S3 and S4 are available prepaid and unlocked so you can use them with a separate prepaid simcard of your choice. With the arrival of the S4, the Galaxy S3 and the S3 mini are a cheaper alternative when you want an awesome Samsung smartphone but also want to be cost efficient.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the best prepaid/unlocked android smartphone on the market today.

When looking for my new phone I found that the Galaxy S4 is the best prepaid smartphone at the moment. Especially the price/quality is much better then the competitor iPhone 5. This was for me the most important argument to choose the Samsung phone. Below you find the prepaid as well as the unlocked Samsung galaxy S4 and S3 for use with a separate prepaid simcard of the network provider of your choice. This way you have the best smartphone 2016 and the advantages of a prepaid contract.

#2) prepaid smartphone: Apple iPhone 5 (unlocked)

This iPhone 5 is unlocked so you can use it with a separate prepaid simcard of your choice

The iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C are available now but in my opinion the price for the 5S is too high and the feel of the 5C is too cheap, but that is my personal opinion of course. Here are the links for the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C on Amazon

The original iPhone 5 for me is the second best prepaid phone at the moment. No true Apple user would be happy with anything less quality than an Apple. This phone comes 2nd for me because of the price. Apple quality is awesome but I was not prepared to pay the extra dollar for it. Also, the iPhone 5 does not communicate very well with a windows computer. This was an obstacle for me.

For the rest, The iPhone 5 is an awesome phone. The design of this Apple iPhone is sleek with glass on the front and aluminum plate on the back. The camera on the back and the LED flash are both nicely incorporated into the body of the iPhone.
On the front Apple placed the ‘Front Facing Camera’ In the aluminum. This is a change from the previous model where the dark color of the camera module made the front camera not interfere with the overall design. I likes the way this was done in the iPhone 4 better.

Apple is very happy with the Retina Display screen of the iPhone 5. The human eye can not distinguish the pixels. All texts and images appear like “printed pages”, according to Apple. This shows the superb quality of the iPhone.

The iPhone 5 uses the new very fast A6 processor.

New/ Upcomming Smartphones 2017

 


Which Smartphone Is The Best Choice?

That depends on what you want to use your smartphone for

The functions that are most important for myself in a smartphone in 2016 are:internet/ social media, making a phone call and the alarm clock. I use Internet and social media on my phone mostly when I am traveling by train and at home where I have wifi.I have a prepaid phone so I don’t want to use the internet on the 3g/4g network too much. An other choice you have to make is between an android/ Apple/ windows phone and if you want a more expensive high end smartphone or if you are satisfied with a cheaper alternative that covers the basic functions.

#1 Smartphone 2017: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

The Best Android Smartphone On The Market Today

In my opinion: the new Samsung S7 Edge is despite the iPhone 6 (plus) the best smartphone 2015. This has mostly to do with the price/quality. The Galaxy S7 Edge and the iPhone 6 are both awesome smartphones but the S7 Edge has a display on three sides and specs that Apple will have to match with the iPhone 7 to stay in the competition. It certainly is the best android smartphone with a very beautiful design, fast and reliable. The best smartphone you can buy at the moment.

Specs: DISPLAY: 5.5 inches, 1440 x 2560 pixels Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, CPU: Dual-core 2.15 GHz Kryo & dual-core 1.6 GHz Kryo – Quad-core 2.3 GHz Cortex-A53 + quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53

 #1 Used/Contract Smartphone: Samsung Galaxy S5

The Galaxy S5 is a very, very good smartphone for a now ridiculously affordable price. The link goes to the Verizon contract Galaxy S5, but AT&T and Sprint are also available.


#2) Apple iPhone 6 16 GB

The Best Apple (iPhone) Smartphone 2016/2017

The iPhone 6 is an awesome smartphone and will be the best iPhone until the next iPhone is available. Unfortunately the iPhone is quite expensive while the basic model still has only 16GB, which is not much for the money. That is why the iPhone 6 is #2 in this list and not #1.

iPhone 6/ 6 Plus review and Specs

With the iPhone 6 Apple for the first time produced a smartphone with a ‘big’ screen. The 4.7 inch screen is considerably larger than previous iPhones, but thanks to the new design with rounded finished edges it feels comfortable in the hand. The screen is again beautiful, with high contrast and high brightness and thanks to the new Apple A8 chip the iPhone 6 is fast and has a good battery life.

The camera has been improved somewhat , especially in low light conditions. An other positive point is the new version of iOS, which provides Apple users and developers more choices and options.

If you can afford the iPhone 6 and you are an Apple enthusiast, then with the iPhone 6 you get one of the best smartphones currently available.

Specs iPhone 6:

4.7″ LED-backlit IPS LCD Multi-Touchscreen w/ Shatter-Proof Glass and Oleophobic CoatingiOS 8, Dual-Core 1.4 GHz Cyclone (ARM v8-based) Processor, Chipset: Apple A8, PowerVR GX6650 (hexa-core graphics) Graphics8 Megapixel Camera (3264 x 2448 pixels) w/ Autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) Flash + Front-Facing 1.2 Megapixel Camera, 720p, burst, HDRInternal Memory: 16GB, 1GB RAM

The iPhone 6 Plus has an even bigger screen, too big for my taste, which is difficult to handle with one hand. For people interested in the iPhone 6 Plus: here is the link to Amazon

HTC is a very strong South Korean brand that is able to give competition with the HTC One M9 to the two big players in the smartphone market, Samsung Galaxy and Apple iPhone. The mobiles that HTC produced are high quality but a little less expensive than the latest Galaxy and iPhone series, making it a much appreciated alternative.
