Find fiddling with your small display phone to be unsatisfying? If you do, we recommend you to switch to a phablet. So what’s phablet? Simply put, a phablet is a smartphone that features an extraordinarily large display. From watching movies to playing games on your phablets, the bigger the better as far as we are concerned. Here’s a list to get you started.
The OnePlus 5T is a phablet that boasts a 6.01-inch Full HD+ AMOLED Display; the AMOLED Display is crucial for this phablet as it allows the phablet to display colours that look awesomely vivid and punchy. This translates to a more enjoyable and immersive experience when you’re watching your favourite movies or playing games on this phablet.
One other great feature of this phablet is the inclusion of face recognition technology – it’s a first in the history of OnePlus. Although not on par with Apple’s face recognition technology, it’s still relatively brilliant. It uses 100+ facial identifiers to allow you, and only you, to unlock the phablet.
Google Pixel 2XL
From the company that brought you your favourite search engine, comes the unbelievably dreamy phablet – Google Pixel 2XL. Enclosed within the boundaries of the slim bezels lies a 6.0 inch Quad HD+ poled display. The choice of display by Google produces greater colour accuracy and contrast, along with deeper blacks. All this leads to greater satisfaction when you binge-watch TV shows or movies.
A proverbial cherry on top for this phablet is its dual front-facing speakers. They’re loud and clear when it comes to emitting sound, which will no doubt, be a great thing to have when you are racing in Asphalt 8 or taking in the beautiful soundtrack on Fire Emblem Heroes.
Samsung Galaxy S9+
Samsung has more galaxies than the entire universe. Jokes aside, Samsung has released the Samsung Galaxy S9+ which is seriously not a joke. It comes equipped with a 6.2-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED (2960×1440 resolution) screen which makes everything on-screen look mesmerizingly colourful and bright. It also supports HDR content –binging on Netflix has never been so satisfying.
Samsung has also repositioned the fingerprint sensor on this phablet – it’s now located below the camera so you won’t smear the lens with finger-licking good grease from your finger when you unlock the phone (We don’t judge as we’re guilty of using our phones while eating KFC too).
Huawei Mate 10 Pro
The Huawei Mate 10 Pro complements its aesthetically pleasing design with a 6-inch HD+ HDR 10 OLED display. The display which sits inside its close-to-bezel-less design gives it that extra ‘wow’ factor when you realize that it can display a whole spectrum of colours vividly. The colour integrity and reproduction are superb – just enough to get a 4K TV viewing experience.
If that doesn’t seal the deal for you, then the camera just might. Huawei Mate 10 Pro adds dual camera to its arsenal and both of them sport f/1.6 aperture. That’s not all, the camera also capitalises on Huawei’s AI to help you take that picture-perfect portrait.
Huawei P20 Pro
The Huawei P20 Pro packs a 6.1-inch AMOLED display (1080×2160 resolution). The display can change the colour temperature on the go to suit the condition of the surrounding light. But by far, the brightness of the screen is the best thing. When you max out the brightness, reading an e-book or watching YouTube videos under the sun is a-OK!
The display is not the only great thing this phablet is packing; it packs a tri-camera. The phablet uses all three lenses when you take a picture to ensure that the resulting image is stunningly sharp.
Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra
The Sony steps up its game with the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra. It has a large 6-inch LCD IPS Display which serves as the perfect canvas for videos. The colour profile of this phablet seems to aim for an accurate yet relaxed profile – perfect for those who hate overly eye-popping or cartoonish colours that seem to be the norm now for phablets.
In terms of battery life, it’s pretty solid. The 2,580mAh battery will easily last a day and at its best, 2 days with plenty of juice left in the tank. There’s also an Ultra STAMINA Mode which can extend your battery life significantly in times of need (like waiting for that one text message from your crush when your battery is less than 10%).
Honor View 10
The Honor View 10 seeks to obliterate its competitors with its 5.99-inch LCD display (2160×1080 resolution). It is relatively exceptional among its LCD display peers – it is capable of displaying colours of the in-game or on-movie environment rather accurately and vividly. As a result, each blade of grass you see in-game or on-movie looks unbelievably lush.
As for performance, the Honor View 10 has got that covered with the Kirin 970 AI processor. The Kirin 970 ensures that everything runs fast and smooth – no stammering and stuttering when you scroll through Instagram or when you launch apps. The Kirin 970 does an exceptional job at processing colour pictures and helps with object recognition too.
