Any fashion-forward person will tell you, your phone is the ultimate accessory. We rely on our phones for day-to-day tasks like updating calendars, responding to emails, taking business calls or snap chatting and ‘gramming our outfit of the day (#OTTD). Let’s face it, our phones are never far out of reach.
When we start digging into it, it becomes apparent that your phone says a lot about you as a person. According to Hunch.com, Android users tend to fall in the 18-34 age range, are more likely to have pets, love Lord of the Rings and Radiohead, and prefer chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream over mint chocolate chip, whereas Apple users are 35+, predominantly liberal, binge-watch Woody Allen films and will take mint chip over chocolate chip cookie dough any day of the week.
With our phones being an extension of ourselves, there are a couple of new players to be on the lookout for if you’re planning on upgrading anytime soon, because, who doesn’t make phone purchasing decisions based on personal style?
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G
The first phone that should be on your radar is the Galaxy S20 Ultra. This phone offers a variety of features and design perks that make it a must-have for every Insta-famous person or casual fashionista. Some things to note:
5G and Water Resistance
One of the best things about the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is that it’s water-resistant, making it the perfect option for travel bloggers and ocean-side selfies or boomerangs. It also supports 5G network
40MP Front-Facing and 108MP Rear Camera
Your 40MP front-facing camera and 108MP Rear Camera make this Samsung’s best camera to date and ensures you’ll get the perfect look of the day shot to show off your makeup details every time.
The world’s first Infinity Screen means you have a large, brilliant 6.9” expansive display that gives you the most amount of screen to work within the least amount of space.
Ultrasonic Fingerprint Reader and Face Scanner
Nothing says, “I’m living in the future!” like a phone that offers an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner and facial recognition software to unlock the screen.
iPhone 11 Pro Max
If Apple is more your style, you may find yourself leaning more toward the iPhone 11 Pro Max, one of three additions to Apple’s roster this year. Some features to take into consideration include:
An assortment of Color Options
Available in midnight green, silver, space gray and gold, the iPhone 11 Pro Max allows you to customize your new accessory based on your personal color preferences.
While the iPhone 11 Pro Max only boasts 12MP on its rear-facing camera, it also offers a rear-facing flash to illuminate your selfies in the darkest of places. You can now capture yourself in the audience at NYFW without sacrificing image quality.
Wannabe professional photographers, rejoice! In addition to ‘Portrait Mode,’ which was introduced with the iPhone 7 Plus, Apple has now introduced a portrait lighting feature that allows users to add lighting filters to portrait images without the physical lighting setup.
What phone will you be reaching for this year to complement and document your style? Will it be the 108 zooming quad camera, water-resistant, infinity-o screen-boasting Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra? Or Apple’s gold (silver, or space grey) iPhone 11 Pro Max with front-facing flash and enhanced portrait mode? The choice is at your fingertips.
