With these smartphones – θήκες κινητών – you will see everything from YouTube to Netflix and, why not, the Oscars. Smartphones are gradually replacing TVs and more and more consumers are watching YouTube videos, series, live streams and movies on Netflix, pay-TV or Web TV. However, not all phones are designed for streaming content, and on the occasion of the Oscars we present those that really take the viewing experience to another level.
In this list the selection was made based on the technical characteristics that are mainly related to the image playback and to a lesser extent to the audio performance. However, let’s not forget that all the components of a device – the most typical example is the software – affect the result.
Of course there may be other, better phones overall, newer releases of 2021, but we have singled out below what can be considered mini TVs and you can watch Netflix, YouTube and more.
1.Samsung Galaxy A71 6GB 128GB Dual
On the Samsung Galaxy A71 you will find the top panel of Super AMOLED technology, with a screen resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and a cinematic ratio of 20: 9. The other subsystems enhance its operation without necessarily being the top of each category (eg the Adreno 618 GPU). A complete “TV” package at a reasonable price.
2. Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max 64GB
The awe-inspiring rival in Super AMOLED with the built-in Digitizer is the Super Retina XDR OLED that proudly carries Apple’s newest and most perfect “child”, the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The diagonal and aspect ratio of this panel are smaller than those of the Galaxy A71 (6.5 and 19.5: 9), but remain among the highest. Overall this panel offers a riveting experience due to its high resolution of 1242 x 2688 pixels, Dolby Vision and HDR10 support. You will find such content on Netflix.
3. Apple iPhone XS Max 64GB
Another Apple product on the list for the same reasons, but with a significant difference in price – about 300 euros cheaper than the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The iPhone XS Max has a great 6.5-inch Super Retina OLED screen with a resolution of 1242 x 2688 pixels and a 19.5: 9 aspect ratio. It also supports Dolby Vision, HDR10 and has a refresh rate of 120 Hz for a smoother image.
4. Motorola One Vision 128GB Dual
Motorola has renewed its product line many times, but the One series has kept one thing in mind and that is the movie screen. In appearance it does not prejudge its capabilities, since there are bezels around the front, a hole for the selfie camera and the diagonal is “only” 6.3 inches. However, this panel, with a ratio of 21: 9 (1080 x 2520 pixels), promises to offer a riveting viewing experience. It is worth noting that it has an Exynos 9609 processor and Mali-G72 MP3 GPU, which drops the price to very affordable levels. For YouTube and streaming just perfect.
5. OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition 256GB
Once OnePlus decided to focus on the premium phone market it did not look back. The 7T Pro is a proof of its intentions and a quality device for every fanatic viewer. The list of technical features in its case proves the truth: 6.67 inch Fluid AMOLED screen without holes or notches, resolution 1440 x 3120 pixels, 19.5: 9 ratio, DCI-P3 support (a range of RGB colors specifically for movies), HDR10 + with ten-bit colors and dynamic data playback, 90 Hz refresh rate and Adreno 640 GPU. Probably the most “cinematic” smartphone of all.
6. LG V40 ThinQ 128GB
An economical and very interesting choice. If you exclude the notch at the top, which necessarily limits the viewing of the video, it has everything to gain your taste. The screen is 6.4 inches P-OLED with a resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels and a ratio of 19.5: 9. The V40 supports Dolby Vision and HDR10 content. Although the mid-ranger has a very good processor, Snapdragon 845 (10 nm), and GPU Adreno 630. With these technical features it promises a unique experience.
