Samsung's newest release is its best yet

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is one of our favourite phones to be released in the past few years. It has only just came out and has already shot straight to the top of our best mobile phones of 2019 list. Great performance, a massive infinity-O display screen and features-galore makes this our pick of the best device of this year.
Although this phone isn't exactly cheap it is worth the price tag. But if you do feel like something a bit cheaper would be better for you, Argos also has the Samsung Galaxy S10e for less.

Good performance and battery for a budget device

The Moto E5 Plus performs best in two fields: performance and battery. The device scores good points in these fields but despite its large size screen it lacks resolution and can feel a bit cheap at times.
