Choosing a smartphone can be a big decision. It all depends on what you like and what you need. Apple’s ever-dependent iPhone and the versatile Samsung Galaxy range are always high on the list, and whilst they are excellent products; it’s really worth taking a look at the wide variety of options in the market.

The biggest technology companies in the world year in year fight for the top spot in the lucrative smartphone industry. It’s almost an arms race of constantly upgrading features and designs to win over consumers and make their lives easier. With so many models of smartphones to choose from, Women Love Tech has picked out the models that we think are the best from each brand.

Apple: iPhone 11

Arguably the most popular smartphone in the world, Apple’s iPhone is one of the most-used smartphones. Apple is always improving on its previous iPhone, and the iPhone 11 is not only the latest but also the best model they’ve released to date.

With Apple’s biggest screen yet, face recognition, a glossy, slick design, and an all-new brilliant camera, it’s understandable why the iPhone 11 is one of, if not, the most popular smartphone in the world.

Samsung: Galaxy S20


In the world of smartphones, it’s always a battle between Apple and Samsung with devotees on both side. The South Korean giant has been competing head-to-head with Apple for over a decade to produce the best smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy S20, its flagship, is one of the best Android-run phones on the market.

Google: Pixel 4 / XL

Google Pixel 4, smartphone

Google releasing a smartphone was an ambitious move, to say the least. But when they did with the first-generation Pixel seven years ago in 2013, its vision for what its future smartphones would look like was beyond clear. Now in 2020, the Pixel 4 is Google’s latest release and it is one of the most enjoyable in the current market.

It’s a phone made the Google way. It’s efficient, extremely smart, very simple to use, and most importantly…it’s fun. The Pixel 4 is far from the finished product, but Google is definitely heading in the right direction.

Huawei: P30 Pro
