Best Phones For Multimedia

Asif Iqbal Shaikh

To compile this list of best phones for multimedia usage, we focussed on a lot of things, but our prime focus was the screen and audio quality as well as battery life. Each of these phones can double up as multimedia players, offering good multimedia features and performance. We preferred phones with OLED screens and with higher resolutions. Some phones such as the Galaxy S8+, Sony Xperia XZ Premium, and the LG G6 even offer HDR video playback, which improves the video watching experience immensely. Phones like the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, HTC U11, and Mi Max 2 offer loud stereo speakers for immersive audio, which is vital for good multimedia experience. Feature rich audio and video players as well as longer battery life is also a vital part of good multimedia phones. Let’s see which smartphones we think could be great multimedia companions.
