[Sept 2020] Best Flagship Smartphones in Nepal

connectips

If you are going to spend over NPR 60000 on a smartphone, it is better to save up and go for a flagship smartphone of your choice. A flagship smartphone will obviously have the best processor, best camera and premium build quality to keep your smartphone experience great even after years of usage. Here we’re listing out such best flagship smartphones in Nepal.

Last year’s Samsung flagship smartphones like the Samsung Note 10+, Samsung S10 series are still great for 2020 but since they haven’t gotten that much of a price drop in Nepal when compared globally, I will only be including the latest flagships from Samsung on this list. Since the launch of the new OnePlus and iPhone flagship lineup is yet to be announced, I will be including their last year’s flagships in this list which are in no way short of features in 2020.

Best Flagship Smartphones in Nepal

Let us get started with our top picks for the best flagship smartphones in Nepal as of now.

Xiaomi Mi 10

If you are a Xiaomi fan, this is the best Xiaomi flagship money can buy right now. Although there are no wow factors on this phone, it is feature-packed enough to be worthy of having a flagship title. Flagship Snapdragon processor, 108MP versatile quad-camera setup, curved AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate, LPDDR5 RAM with fastest UFS 3.0 storage are some of its notable features. It also has the biggest battery among all others in this list i.e. of 4780mAh.

Samsung Galaxy S20/S20+

The latest S20 series is a must include in this list except for the much expensive S20 Ultra which is already out of stock in Nepal. The S20 has great cameras, battery life, and the best Exynos processor Samsung has to offer. The Exynos processor does lack in performance as compared to the latest Snapdragon king. S20+ has a taller display, larger battery, and an additional depth sensor as compared to S20 so, there’s not much of a difference to exclude S20 out of this list. Unlike Mi 10, these phones have QHD AMOLED display but 120Hz refresh rate is only supported up to FHD+ resolution. Another interesting feature is the 8K video recording capability of these smartphones which wasn’t available on last year’s S10 lineup.

iPhone 11 Pro/Pro Max

Apple’s iPhone always delivers the best in terms of everything when it comes to its flagship smartphones and there’s no argument about these two as well. Though the iPhone 11 is the most-selling and ‘bang for the buck’ iPhone, it does lack a good display and telephoto lens, making it unworthy of a flagship title. So, I haven’t included it in this list. The camera game of the iPhone is pretty strong in this lineup with a triple-camera setup and so is its A13 bionic chipset that delivers greater CPU and GPU performance than Snapdragon 865. Having more RAM than iPhone 11 and now with the latest iOS 14 update, these phones have their own smooth ecosystem that attracts many customers worldwide.

OnePlus 8 Pro

OnePlus took the smartphone market by storm when it first started with its flagship killer smartphone. Although the pricing of OnePlus smartphones has gone up a lot, they always come packed with the best flagship features in the market and OnePlus 8 Pro is no exception. Snapdragon 865 processor, great quad-camera setup, one of the best smartphones’ displays in the market currently with 120Hz refresh rate, up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and fastest UFS 3.0 storage running Oxygen OS are all blessings for the perfect user experience. The company also brought the long-awaited wireless charging in the OnePlus 8 Pro. Personally, I would buy this over the expensive smartphone lineups from Samsung but it is up to you to decide.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

Even though people have their own preferences, if this phone had come with the latest Snapdragon processor instead of Exynos, I would have gladly titled it ‘The King of Flagships’ because all of its other features are hard to beat. The focus hunting issue seen on the 108MP sensor and the camera’s software processing has both been drastically improved. The new Gorilla Glass Vitus protection has already proven to be true as per many Youtube reviews. Samsung has always been the ruler of the ‘Best display’ category and with the huge and crisp Note 20 Ultra’s screen, you will feel like immersing into it for sure. I also like how Samsung still provides the option of expandable storage via SD-card even on its flagships. These were all great features for a flagship but what makes Note 20 Ultra stand out from the rest is its new S-pen that goes with its name. The improved 9ms latency is a drastic change from last year making the user experience much smoother. Overall, even without the Exynos processor, it’s the ‘King’ all right.

If you have the money for a flagship, you can choose to go with any from this list as per your need. Not even the Exynos processor smartphones will cause you any problem while heavy gaming. It’s just that people from other regions are getting Snapdragon processor for the same price so, I included it in the ‘cons’ column. Let me know in the comments down below if I missed any smartphone you wanted to see here.
