Looking for a new phone? We’ve rounded up the coolest, newest ones for you
Samsung Galaxy S9
The Galaxy S9, Samsung’s newest offering, comes in a new design that lets you “see more and hold less.” We’re talking an infinity display that gives you a cinematic view. It comes with speakers that offer pure, surround sound that’s superior to previous Galaxy phones. The phone has a camera with a dual aperture that works like the human eye; it automatically adapts bright light and very low light so you can take pictures with stunning clarity, anytime, anywhere. You don’t need to worry about blurry pictures either; when you’re shaky, optical image stabilisation will ensure your photos come out clear and sharp. When taking videos, Super Slow-mo feature allows you to shoot at incredible speed (960 frames per second) and capture videos in slow motion. You can instantly edit and add music to your videos or turn them into GIFS. Also, you can turn your photos to emojis that follow your movements and expressions. Oh, and it is dust and water resistant.

Huawei P Smart
When it comes to budget smartphones, Huawei seems to be going for the win. The P Smart has a wider view (5.65-inch 2.5D glass screen) that still sits comfortably in the palm of your hand. But that’s only the start because the smart split screen lets you run two apps side by side. Say you’re watching a movie and an email comes in, you can easily split the screen and respond to the message without disrupting your movie. Take perfect selfies using the Face Beauty algorithm that detects and enhances unique facial characteristics. Be sure of quality images all the same thanks to the 13MP and 2MP Dual Camera. The phone supports dual Bluetooth connection.
