My top 5 phones of 2021

Hey there – my name is Ivan, and I’m the resident professional photographer here at GSMArena.com! This is my list of preferred phones for the year and you can inform right now that it’s a bit uninteresting and foreseeable. In my defense, I like the most significant and outright finest phones with the more flexible and capable video cameras.

However I did consist of an odd phone or 2 that ignited my interest for other factors.

So let’s start. I’ll note the gadgets in reverse order, so the last is my outright favorite.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G

I went to journalism occasion for the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 statement and wasn’t really fired up about the brand-new foldables. That’s due to the fact that their electronic camera specifications were dull compared to the reliable Galaxy S21 Ultra in my pocket.

Nevertheless, when the Galaxy Z Fold3 concerned the workplace for evaluation and I had a long time to have fun with it, I rapidly ended up being interested by its better multitasking functions. I liked the App Panel, which functions as an always-on taskbar.

I do practically whatever on my phone so naturally, I desired the phone with the capability to broaden to a little tablet. I pre-ordered the Galaxy Z Fold3 with the bonus offer of a case and an S Pen. Eventually it made no sense to move from the photographic quality that is the Galaxy S21 Ultra, to the imaging mediocrity that is the Galaxy Z Fold3, and I canceled my order.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra

Since of its cam pedigree, I naturally gravitated to the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra and quickly after its evaluation, I began utilizing the phone as a day-to-day motorist.

Its video cameras are fantastic, for me the very best in regards to hardware, and the phone was wonderfully constructed. I enjoyed it for a couple of months, enough to do a long-lasting evaluation on it.

Eventually, I was jonesing for my cherished Galaxy S21 Ultra, so I changed back.

Google Pixel 6

I’m a long time fan of the Google Pixel. To this day among my outright preferred phones of perpetuity is the Pixel 2 XL When Google revamped its Pixel line and brought it back to flagship status in 2021, I was offered. I purchased a Pixel 6 For my sweetheart. To change her Pixel 3.

So I got to experiment with the Pixel 6 for a bit. I like its style – the dual-tone surface is beautiful and (undesirable viewpoint) the thick black bezel and black frame work well together. I simply want Google had actually done a white (or stormtrooper) Pixel 6.

The Pixel 6 is a fluid phone, I truthfully can’t inform it’s performing at just 90 Hz and not 120 Hz. And the brand-new 50 MP primary video camera appears to see in the dark. I enjoy it.

Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max

I’m ending the year with an iPhone 13 Pro Max, which I still can’t validate purchasing. It’s an excellent phone, even an exceptional phone, however I’m still uncertain I made the ideal call to switch the Galaxy S21 Ultra for the iPhone.

Apple’s 13 Pro Max is the battery king of the flagship world, making the already-adequate Galaxy appearance lackluster. IOS is my preferred mobile operating system.

Here comes another out of favor viewpoint – it’s the video cameras that made me change. The iPhone 13 Pro Max is more constant with its lead to all lighting conditions. Selfies, in specific, are remarkable.

However it’s video that has actually seen the most visible enhancement considering that I moved from a Galaxy to an iPhone. The iPhone 13 Pro Max shoots in-depth videos in 10- bit HDR at as much as 4K 60 fps, which are 2nd to no other phone. Since of this, I utilize the iPhone 13 Pro Max as a b-cam to my devoted Sony cam for numerous videos.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G

I have actually utilized the Galaxy S21 Ultra for the much better part of 8 months in 2021 and have an unique location in my heart for it.

In the beginning, I was attracted by the Galaxy Ultra’s beautiful outside – all screen on the front and a gorgeous matte-finished back that handled to hold a lot of video cameras and look great doing it.

As I got utilized to the Galaxy S21 Ultra, I grew familiar with its long endurance, remarkable efficiency, fault-less ultrasonic finger print scanner, and reliable electronic cameras.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra has no vulnerable points and can go toe to toe in any classification with any phone. And it’s improving and much better, thanks to Samsung’s concentrate on software application – it got Android 12 (with which I have not had concerns) in November. The upgrade made an obvious enhancement in phone efficiency.

So those are my leading 5 phones of the year. I ended in 2015 with the iPhone 12 Pro Max, so this year’s end makes good sense. I likewise began my leading 5 phones post with the Galaxy Z Fold2, and had a Pixel 5 in there to accompany my existing options. I likewise had a Huawei flagship on my list, which is not likely for many lists this years, regretfully. Anyhow, delighted vacations, thanks for reading, and see you on GSMArena.com!
