There is one thing that Google does better than everyone else – camera quality. Since the first Pixel device, Google has stunned the world with the quality of the photos coming out of its device. The Pixel 3 really refined that quality, bringing in features such as night photos, wide angle photos and super-res zoom.

Features galore with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro
Huawei Mate 20 Pro | SIM-free | £749 (from John Lewis)
Since its release, we’ve been big fans of the Mate 20 Pro. Finally, a phone to compete with Samsung and Apple. The phone won us over through its top of the line specs and unique features including reverse charging and in-screen fingerprint scanners. There’s no denying that the Mate 20 Pro is the most feature packed, beefed up phone at this price range. Or if that SIM-free cost seems like a bit much, spread it out over a contract with a Mate 20 Pro deal.
The unexpected choice – Oppo Find X
