5 Best Mid Range Phone In 2019

The differences between flagship phones and mid-range phones are starting to blur. Flagship phones keep shooting up in price point with not enough value to justify it, aside from the “wow” factor. Meanwhile, many mainstream mid-range performers are coming in at affordable price points while still offering high-end hardware. As far as speed and software differences go between many mid-rangers and flagship phones, there aren’t many.

That said, if you’re looking to upgrade your current phone, you might want to look at a mid-range phone this time around. Follow along below, and find out what the five best choices are today.

iPhone XR

Enter, the iPhone XR. One of the issues that Apple saw with its new product line was that there phones were getting more and more expensive, which is something that many existing customers may not want to follow Apple into. That said, they created a more affordable option still with some excellent hardware in tow — the iPhone XR.

The biggest difference that you’re going to see between the iPhone XR and the iPhone XS and XS Max is that you only get the single-lens camera instead of the dual camera its bigger brothers have. There’s a slightly smaller battery as well at 2,942mAh. Still, the iPhone XR is incredible. It keeps up with its bigger brothers easily, and can handle just about anything you want to throw at it.

It comes with the all-screen 6.1-inch display as well, still touting that Face ID module at the top.

Samsung Galaxy S10e

Up next, we’re looking at the Samsung Galaxy S10e. You can picture that the S10e is to the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus what the iPhone XR is to the iPhone XS and XS Max. It’s Samsung’s own mid-ranger, built with affordability in mind. That said, just like the iPhone XR, you’re not going to find any major glaring differences between the S10e and the S10 or S10 Plus.

It comes with a 5.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED display, which is great for watching all types of media. There’s a fast Snapdragon 855 processor inside, and up to 8GB of RAM keeps multi-tasking running quickly.

Huawei P30 Lite

Coming up next, we’re looking at the Huawei P30 Lite. The P30 Lite comes with a beautiful 6.15-inch all-screen display that offers some excellent visuals. Internal storage sits at 128GB, but only 4GB of RAM. It features Huawei’s own Hisilicon Kirin 710, which operates pretty quickly. This phone can handle just about anything you throw at it!

The Huawei P30 Lite comes with an excellent camera setup, too. There’s a dual-camera setup on the rear, with sensors at 24-megapixels and 8-megapixels. There’s a front 32-megapixel camera as well, which is able to take some really detailed selfies.

This one comes with a fast Snapdragon 835 processor, all backed by up to 4GB of RAM. There’s 128GB worth of internal storage, and a dual 13-megapixel camera setup will help you take beautiful photos. It’s got a 5.71-inch screen, but still provides you some beautiful details for media and such.
