2019 will always be remembered for some most innovative tech that we saw in recent years. At a time when it appeared that the innovation is dead and a major change is not possible, we saw smartphone displays that can be folded in half.

It's the end of 2019, which means that it's time to choose the best smartphones of the year.

Please note that these phones are in no particular order.

1. Apple iPhone 11 Pro

To no one's surprise, Apple iPhone 11 Pro is the first phone on our list and is easily one of the best phones that we saw in 2019.

Just when everyone thought that the smartphone innovation is dead, Samsung introduced Galaxy Fold and people went drooling over it.
