Love or hate Apple it’s time to admit that the iPhone 11 Pro/Max is the most solid phone ever and best of 2019.

Now they need headphone jack, remove notch , change camera layout , put gorilla glass again, provide 4K HDR video or 6K, QHD or 4K on Max.

Most tech site article about the best 2019 smartphone didn't place iPhone 11 at 1st place.

Apple met expectations, they didn't exceed them. That's not good enough at their price range

i think Apple exceeded expectations with best in the class battery life and the camera. Both improved lot more than anyone expected. That's why the sales are very good.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus is the best phone of 2019

Depends on what you are looking for... I personally like the software experience on the Pixel. Especially after turning off the Radar (for the battery life). Camera also is a joy . I have had Iphone 11 pro Max and the Note 10 Plus. 1. Pixel 2.phone 3. Note (though the note is the most complete phone, but execution can be sloppy and jerky in comparison to Pixel and iphone and Camera is a half step down (though video is better than pixel)) NOT A FAN OF THE ONE PUS 7PRO

the regular Pro version of iPhone 11 is my favourite phone so far.

Note 10+. No contest. My iPhone 11 has great battery life (3 to 4 days of non-use) but giving a phone the weight of a brick just get that battery life shows Apple doesn't have the engineering and design down. Plus the physical phone design is incredibly dated.

Well, Since you didn't include the Oneplus 7 Pro I selected the 7t Pro.

What is the best phone? The phone that fits YOUR needs for YOUR budget the BEST and gives YOU the most enjoyment and usable life. Everything else is just childlish bickering.

Exactly, there is no right or wrong answer

I went with the Pixel 3a XL. It gets the fundamentals just right: good camera, nice display, snappy performance, excellent battery life, reasonable price. No gimmicks, just a solid experience.

S10e is my favorite because of its existence being smaller than the XS and Pixel 4 and a great smaller phone.

Xperia 5 is my favorite. It is thin and beautifully balanced in the hand. Despite being a relatively huge phone, the width means that it is extremely comfortable on the hand. I use my phone for a lot of texting and writing emails and the above factors make it easier. The screen and battery life (despite the smaller battery) are not too shabby either
