    Answered By Vinay Neela | 5 months ago

    I will recommend you Samsung Galaxy S9. It comes with  5.8-inch Super AMOLED display which features a screen resolution of 1,440 x 2,960 pixels. Under the hood, there are two quad-core processors (2.3 GHz M2 Mongoose and 1.7GHz Cortex A53) and those are seated upon Samsung Exynos 9 Octa 9810 chipset with 4GB of RAM.  A primary camera having 12MP resolution and front camera of 8MP helps to capture high-resolution images. The smartphone derives its energy from a 3,000mAh Li-ion battery inclusive of fast charging support.

    It has all the elements which the user desires from a top brand like Samsung.
