iPhone is always rated as the number one smartphone around the globe no doubt. But with so many of mobile devices being launched these days it seems it’s having its competitors. So if you want the same features as that of Apple smartphones then here are the five of the best new mobile phones lately launched in Australia that challenge iOS phone in every possible way. These phones come in different forms and colors and also with cheaper prices.
1. Sony Xperia XZ Premium
Priced at AU$1056 this Sony Smartphone Xperia XZ Premium excels on numerous fronts, with an improbably good looking 5.5-inch 4K screen, speedy octa-core chip, water-resistance, and an above-average 19-megapixel camera. The camera not only finds focus fast, but because of its additional memory, is capable of capturing super slow-motion video at 960 frames every second which means four times more than the Apple iPhone.
2. Moto G5
Priced at AU$299 this Motorola phone known as Moto G5 features a premium metal body, a five-inch full high-definition screen, and a 13-megapixel camera that you can access with a couple of flicks of the wrist with a nifty Moto shortcut. Despite its price, it also throws a fingerprint scanner and a five-megapixel selfie camera with a beauty tool to make your pictures more appealing. Though it includes a less-than-cutting-edge chip, fewer pixels on the screen, and a less powerful battery, but it delivers more than you should expect for its price.
3. Sony Xperia XA1
Priced at AU $399 this phone again from Sony known as Xperia XA1 is a small device, with a 5.2-inch screen that stretches all the way across its narrow body; features a fingerprint-resisting plastic body with an attractive glimmery finish. It also packs in a capable 23-megapixel camera with flash, and a dedicated camera button to get snapping quickly. However, this phone lacks a fingerprint scanner, which could be a deal-breaker for some, and it will not resist splashes like other Sony Xperia phones.
4. Huawei GR5
Priced at AU $399 this Huawei phone is the cheapest smartphone with a dual-camera unit. You can use 12-megapixel and two-megapixel cameras to create artistic effects including beautiful blurred backgrounds. The 5.5-inch smartphone is also well weighted in the hand, easy to use, reasonably speedy as it has 3GB RAM, and features a fingerprint scanner on its back panel and space for an extra SIM card for when you roam overseas. It’s not water-resistant and it can pause occasionally, but this is one of the best phones in its class.
5. Nokia 3
Priced at $249 this phone from Nokia called as the Nokia 3, is a capable Android smartphone with no awkward gimmicks and a focus on getting jobs done. The 5-inch phone sports a curved plastic shell, eight-megapixel cameras front and back, just 16GB storage, and a clean approach to Google’s software that doesn’t get in the way. You won’t find much to remind you of Nokia’s history here, apart from that familiar logo, and you won’t find a fingerprint scanner or water resistance, but it’s a good place for smartphone upgraders to begin their journey.
So if you think you cannot afford iOS iPhone then these five mobile options are best. Note that the price mentioned here are as to the time of writing and you need to check with the latest prices with the mobile service provider or store.
