first_img Sanket Vijayasarathy New DelhiJune 21, 2019UPDATED: June 24, 2019 10:33 IST HIGHLIGHTSThe Galaxy M30 offers a Super AMOLED display and 5,000mAh battery at under Rs 15,000.The Galaxy A70 offers the largest AMOLED display among the lot for an immersive viewing experience.The Galaxy S10+ is the best premium Samsung phone to buy with its Exynos 9820 chipset and triple camera setup.Samsung came into 2019 with an intention to rapidly expand its smartphone portfolio. In a span of 6 months, Samsung has launched around a dozen smartphones in India. The Galaxy A series and the newly minted Galaxy M series make up the bulk of these phones and have allowed Samsung to practically offer a Galaxy phone across every price segment ranging from budget to the ultra premium.While there are a lot of Samsung phones to choose from today, not all of them are worth buying. The fact that some of these phones are priced so close to each other makes it harder for consumers to pick the good ones from the okay-ish ones. So, we decided to pick some of the best Galaxy phones worth considering across different price segments.Samsung Galaxy M20: Rs 9,990For the past few years, Samsung has not been able to compete against the likes of Xiaomi and Honor in the budget segment, but the Galaxy M series has turned things around for the company. The Galaxy M20 (Review) was initially launched starting at Rs 10,990, but is now available at Rs 9,990, which makes it the best Samsung phone to choose under Rs 10,000.The Galaxy M20 impresses with its 6.3-inch FHD Infinity-V display, which is sharp and offers great viewing angles. It also comes with Widevine L1 certifications, which is great to see in this segment. The Galaxy M20 is powered by a new 1.8Ghz Exynos 7904 chipset which can handle day-to-day tasks smoothly. Samsung has also updated the Galaxy M20 to Android Pie with One UI.advertisement The other major reason to go for the Galaxy M20 is its massive 5,000mAh battery, which can last a day and a half on full charge. It also supports 15W fast charging over a Type-C port, which is also something you don’t see often in this segment. This is topped with a decent triple camera setup that includes a useful wide-angle lens.Samsung Galaxy M30: Rs 14,990The Galaxy M30 (Review) is by far the best phone in the Galaxy M lineup right now, and we say this despite the launch of the Galaxy M40. This is because the Galaxy M30 embodies everything that consumers have come to expect from Samsung’s new series – an attractive design paired with great hardware at an affordable price.The best feature about the Galaxy M30 is its 6.4-inch FHD+ (2340×1080) Super AMOLED display, which can blow away the likes of the Redmi Note 7 Pro and Realme 3 Pro in this segment. The Galaxy M30 is powered by a 1.8GHz octa-core Exynos 7904 chipset and was recently updated to Android Pie with One UI on top. It gets a 13MP + 5MP + 5MP triple camera setup and a 16MP selfie camera. The icing on the cake is its large 5,000mAh battery which like the Galaxy M20 can last up to a day and a half on a single charge with ease.Samsung Galaxy A50: Rs 18,490Despite the launch of the Galaxy M40, the Galaxy A50 (Review) is still the one to go for under Rs 20,000. It is quite easily the best all-round affordable mid-range Samsung smartphone for the masses. From the outside, the Galaxy A50 feels premium as it offers a stunning Super AMOLED display and a sleek and lightweight form factor. It also gets an in-display fingerprint sensor, which is as 2019 as it can get.The Galaxy A50 offers a 6.4-inch FHD+ (2340×1080) Super AMOLED Infinity-U display that delivers stunning colours with a lot of vividness and deep blacks. It is powered by a snappy 2.3GHz octa-core Exynos 9610 chipset, which is perhaps Samsung’s best mid-range processor right now. This is coupled with a smooth and optimised One UI software with Night mode and a new UI. What completes the Galaxy A50 is a pretty impressive set of cameras. The triple camera setup includes a 25MP f/1.7 primary camera along with a 5MP depth and 8MP ultra wide-angle cameras. The cameras are versatile and offer great clarity and colour reproduction in daylight. The 25MP selfie camera does equally well to offer crisp and attractive selfies. Lastly, the 4,000mAh battery is solid and should deliver over a full day of battery life on above average usage.Samsung Galaxy A70: Rs 28,990The Galaxy A70 (Review) is for consumers who want a big screen smartphone for an immersive viewing experience without paying a premium. The Galaxy A70 is one of the only phones you will find south of Rs 30,000 that offers a large 6.7-inch display. With a display as big as this, you also need a solid battery, which the Galaxy A70 also delivers.advertisementRight now, the Galaxy A70 is the most premium Galaxy A series phone you can buy. It offers a curved glasstic rear panel which makes it easier to grip a phone this big. The Galaxy A70 sports an Infinity-U FHD+ Super AMOLED panel that is absolutely great for binging of shows and playing games. It is powered by a Snapdragon 675 chipset, which is the same processor powering the Galaxy M40 as well.The Galaxy A70 sports a triple camera setup that includes a 32MP primary camera with f/1.7 aperture, an 8MP ultra wide-angle camera and a 5MP depth camera. It also gets a high-res 32MP front-facing camera, which offers crisp selfies. With a 4,500mAh battery, the Galaxy A70 can stay charged for a full day if you’re someone who loves to consume a lot of media.Samsung Galaxy S10e: Rs 50,900The Galaxy S10e (Review) is the affordable flagship from Samsung in 2019. It is also the exact opposite to the Galaxy A70 in terms of design. This is a compact phone for consumers who are looking for a petite and handy phone, which is quite a rarity in 2019. It sports a 5.8-inch FHD+ (2280×1440) Dynamic AMOLED display, which is pretty small by today’s standards.The small form factor of the S10e makes it lightweight and easy to use with one hand. It also gets a side-mounted fingerprint sensor which is snappy easily accessible. Under the hood, it rocks the same Exynos 9820 chipset as the Galaxy S10 and S10+. It gets a dual 12MP + 16MP dual camera setup that includes an ultra wide-angle lens.The only downside to buying a compact phone is that it will also come with a compact battery life. The 3,100mAh battery makes the S10e deliver the poorest battery life among the Samsung phones we have mentioned in this list. It will struggle to last till the end of the day and may require a couple of charges through the day depending on your usage.Samsung Galaxy S10+: Rs 73,900If you want to spend a lot of money to get the best that Samsung has to offer right now, it should be on the Galaxy S10+ (Review) by default. This is the biggest, most premium smartphone from Samsung in 2019 so far and it brings the best of everything right from its curved glass design to its QHD+ Infinity-O display, some great cameras and high-end hardware. The Galaxy S10+ sports a 6.4-inch QHD+ (3040×1440) Dynamic AMOLED display and is powered by the Exynos 9820 chipset. It is offered with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 1TB of internal storage. It also brings an intuitive ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, dual front cameras, triple rear cameras and a long-lasting 4,100mAh battery.ALSO READ | Galaxy Note 10 to come without earpiece, Samsung may opt for Sound on Display techGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

If you’re doing a Dry January, you won’t have to worry about any of this for another month, but for most of us, now is the time that we’re preparing our liquor cabinets for the coming year.If you’re unsure of what new things to try in 2018, we’re here to suggest something not new at all. In fact, what we’re suggesting is old. Eighteen years old, to be exact. (You could go older and get this whisky from 1971, but for now, let’s roll with the New Year-themed list).Below, we’ve collected some of our favorite eighteen-year-old liquor. While the bulk of the list is Scotch whisky, there are also premium rums, a rye whiskey, a Canadian whisky, and an Irish whiskey for your to try in the coming year.Aberlour 18-Year-OldOnly available in the French market until 2008, this whisky is the aged in both bourbon and sherry casks, giving it a range of notes and flavors. On the nose, toffee, peach and orange peel. On the palate, you’ll find apricot, honey, and oak. Finally, the finish brings forth crème brulée notes mixing with some more oak flavors.See ItGlen Moray 18-Year-OldThis is one of the top 20 whiskies of 2017 according to Whisky Advocate. Glen Moray 18 is a well-rounded whisky that has wonderful hay and apple notes on the front, pepper and malty flavors that play nicely against Heather honey on the palate, and a warming, long finish.See ItChivas Regal 18Crafted by master blender Colin Scott, Chivas 18 brings over eighty-five different unique flavor notes to the table with every drop (according to the company). Dried fruits and dark chocolate on the nose lead into more chocolate on the palate as it combines with mellow smoke and floral notes.See ItTomatin 18-Year-OldA Highland whisky finished in Oloroso sherry butts, Tomatin 18 is a sweet, full whisky with notes of chocolate and vanilla shrouded by smoke. Oak notes carry you through into a long, spice-inflected finish.See ItAuchentoshan 18-Year-OldTriple distilled and then aged in American oak, this Lowland Scotch whisky (Auchentoshan is made in Glasgow) presents tobacco leaf and caramelized sugar on the nose, followed by a bright, fresh palate that zings with floral notes and citrus. The finish is long and lively, matching the bright notes from earlier in your tasting experience.See ItGlenmorangie 18-Year-Old Extremely RareAfter 150 years of maturation in American oak, 3 percent of what will become Glenmorangie 18 goes into Oloroso casks. After three more years, the two separated parts are brought back together and blended to create a whisky with dried fruit and floral notes on the nose, honey, figs, and dates on the palate, and a long, somewhat nutty finish.See ItFlor de Caña 18This Nicaraguan rum is produced at the foot of a volcano, using a process the company calls “slow aging” thanks to the temperature and the climate where the rum spends its time. The second-oldest rum in their premium line (Flor de Caña also makes a 25-Year-Old expression), you’ll find a dry and full-bodied rum with plenty of spice flavor.See ItLock Stock & Barrel 18-Year-OldThe third release in the Lock Stock & Barrel series from The Cooper Spirits Company, this rye whiskey is produced from one hundred percent rye grain and is left unfiltered in American oak barrels for at least 18 years. The flavor profile features hot, buttered gingerbread, dried peach, toasted pecan, honeydew, and tobacco.See ItJ.P. Wiser’s 18-Year-OldSometimes also sold as “Wiser’s Very Old,” this blended Canadian whisky has vanilla up front and all the way through to match a mostly sweet body. Behind the vanilla, oak, some pine, and baking spices all come through. On the finish, wood notes ride a smooth wave of heat.See ItTullamore D.E.W. 18-Year-OldThis special edition release from Tullamore D.E.W. was triple distilled (as all of their offerings are) and finished in four different types of wood—bourbon, Oloroso sherry, port, and Madeira casks.  Tullamore D.E.W. 18 has spice and raisins on the nose, bourbon sweetness and toasted malt on the palate, and a caramel and orange-infused finish.See ItKirk & Sweeney 18-Year-OldThe second aged rum on this list, Kirk & Sweeney was named after a schooner that was used to transport rum to the U.S. from the Caribbean during Prohibition. This Dominican rum was aged in American oak casks and gives off a robust flavor profile filled with honey, almond, dried fruits, and even a little sherry on the finish.See It Editors’ Recommendations last_img read more
