Apple just recently dropped their 2019 line-up of flagship products last September — the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max. These devices can range from Php 48,000 and up to Php 74,000 for the base 64GB models. While some can shell out that amount of cash for an Apple iPhone, most cannot. With that, here’s a list of other brands that would give you almost the same Apple experience without going out of budget.

1. Samsung S10+: Overall Performance

 

Samsung is Apple’s most direct competition when it comes to smartphones and they have been head-to-head for several years now. The Samsung Galaxy S10+ shares almost the same features of the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

 

Check out these Samsung S10+ features that make it a good alternative for iPhone 11:

  • The screen display of the S10+ goes as big as 6.4” while the Pro Max reaches 6.5”.
  • The S10+’s 4,300 mAh battery is distinctly larger than the Pro Max’s 3,969 mAh.
  • While both smartphones have wireless charging, only the Galaxy phone has reverse wireless charging capabilities, which means you can charge other devices just by placing it on top of the S10+.
  • Perhaps the biggest advantage of any Samsung device is Samsung has an additional external microSD slot for additional space.

2. Huawei P30 Pro: Camera

 

Be able to rewrite the rules of photography with the Huawei P30 Pro. Its impressive camera system will leave you in awe. Take a look at the camera specs of the Huawei P30 Pro for yourself:

 

  • The P30 Pro has a super Leica Quad camera system. It has an unmatched SuperZoom lens, a whopping 40MP Super Sensing Camera, a 20MP Ultra Wide Angle Lens, and a HUAWEI TOF camera while the Pro Max has 12MP for all three lenses.
  • Capture more never-before-seen images in great resolution and detail with the 10x hybrid zoom and 50x digital zoom of the P30 Pro.
  • Literally capture the night with the P30 Pro’s ISO that reaches up to 409,600.

 

 There are also several posts online about the Huawei P30 Pro being able to take photos of the moon! Talk about great photography, right?

3. Xiaomi: Price

 

Consider the Xiaomi Mi 9 if you’re trying to not spend too much on a smartphone but still get basically the same power of the iPhone 11 Pro Max. It’s one-third the price of a 64GB Pro Max without compromising on specs with its outstanding camera, storage, battery, and RAM. Let’s take a look at how the Mi 9 fares against the Pro Max.

 

  • Mi 9’s screen is smaller but is relatively close to the size of the Pro Max with just a 1.1” difference.
  • The Mi 9 has a bigger internal RAM of 6GB while the iPhone has 4GB.
  • The Mi 9’s camera specs aren’t too far behind with its triple camera system — 48MP for its wide camera, 12MP for its telephoto and 16MP for ultrawide.

5. Asus ROG Phone: Mobile gaming

 

The Asus ROG is a godsend to all mobile gamers. It elevates the way gamers play on their phones with its innovative design. With different accessories you can attach to the ROG for better gameplay, it definitely is a win for gamers. Have an immersive mobile gaming experience with the ROG when you play with it as a classic gamepad, connect it to a nearby TV for wireless streaming, or transform it into a dual-screen device. Here are some notable specs of the Asus ROG:

 

  • It has a 2.96 GHz processor that is partnered with an 8GB RAM which virtually eliminates lag, giving gamers smoother gameplay.
  • Play longer with the 4,000 mAh battery of the Asus ROG
  • Reduce strain on the hands with the lighter 200 g Asus ROG compared to the 226 g Pro Max.

 

You don’t have to spend a lot to experience quality smartphones. Whether you’re focusing on the camera, budget, gaming capability, or the overall performance, there’s always an alternative that’s within your budget.
