5 Best Smartphones For Women 2021

A lot of women aren’t techy when picking a new phone to buy, so things like the connectivity, the platform, sound, comms, processing speed, core power, screen resolution, and sometimes the battery and shape are not considered. The most important thing for most ladies is the brand, camera quality, and storage space.

The brand is just as important as the features of the phone because come on, it gives them bragging rights, they're not your mate you know. The camera quality must be top-notch because how else is the world going to see and admire her beauty, while the storage space large to store all those mini photoshoots and selfies, Korean movies and Nicki, Cardi and Naira Marley music.

Let's take a look at the phones presently in Nigerian markets that are appealing to the female gender.

1. Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra

While the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultras camera didn’t quite deliver on its promise, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra very much does.

As with everything in the S21 Ultra, the camera is top-end, with a 108MP f/1.8 main snapper, a 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide one, and – in a move that’s pretty much unheard of in phones – two telephoto cameras. These are both 10MP, but one has an f/2.4 aperture and allows for 3x optical zoom, while the other has an f/4.9 aperture and allows for a massive 10x optical zoom.

And the results are as impressive as the numbers – so much so that we labeled this the best camera zoom on a phone in our Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra review.

Non-zoomed shots look great too, though sometimes not as good as the best rivals. But coupled with a wealth of camera modes, including new additions like Director’s View (which lets you shoot video with both the front and rear cameras at the same time), along with a highly capable 40MP front-facing camera, this makes for a smartphone photographer’s dream.

Samsung makes up the space for microSD slots with a minor price difference between the 128GB and the 256GB models giving it enough space for pictures and videos.

Release date: January 2021

OS: Android 11

RAM: 12GB / 16GB

Storage: 128GB/256GB/512GB

Battery: 5,000mAh

Rear camera: 108MP + 10MP + 10MP + 12MP

Front camera: 40MP


2. Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra 

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is the first smartphone to use Samsung’s ISOCELL GN2 sensor. It is a smartphone attached to a camera.

Xiaomi Mi 11 has a triple camera system with a 50-megapixel wide-angle main camera, with a massive, 1/1.12'' sensor, f/1.95 aperture, optical image stabilization, and laser focus. There's also a 48-megapixel ultra-wide camera with an f/2.2 aperture, which doubles as a macro camera, and a 48-megapixel telephoto camera with f/4.1 aperture and 5x optical zoom. All three cameras support 8K video recording and Xiaomi's Night mode.

The Mi 11 Ultra has a 5,000mAh power pack inside, an upgrade over the 4,500mAh capacity of last year's model.

Xiaomi's Mi 11 Ultra is a big, bold, powerful phone, but at N533,889.00 for the 8GB variant, it's also extremely expensive. For comparison, Samsung's Galaxy S21 Ultra starts at N492,789.00, while Apple's iPhone 12 Pro Max starts at N451,689.00.

Release date: March 2021

OS: Android 11


Storage: 256GB/512GB

Battery: 5000mAh

Rear camera: 50MP + 48MP

Front camera: 20MP


3. iPhone 12 Pro Max

The iPhone12 Pro Max is the first phone every lady will go for. Though it is not the best smartphone, it is very close to being the best camera phone. Its main snapper includes a 12MP f/1.6, a 12MP f/2.2 telephoto one (with 2.5x optical zoom), a 12MP f/2.4 ultra-wide one, and even a LiDAR scanner, which enables Night Mode portraits.

Low light and night are some of the attributes iPhone 12 Pro Max have far less issue with when it comes to cameras, thanks to a large sensor that can take in a lot of light. iPhone 12 Pro Max Night Mood is also usable with both the main and ultra-wide sensors, so you’re not limited in the types of photos you can take at night.

It also comes with a new feature Smart HDR 3 for the range which combines multiple exposures to create the best picture possible.

Release date: October 2020

OS: iOS 14


Storage: 128GB/256GB/512GB

Battery: 3,687 mAh

Rear camera: 12MP + 12MP + 12MP

Front camera: 12MP


5. Huawei Mate 40 Pro

This is not a phone with so much noise and nowhere near the best smartphone list but it a perfect choice for women that want the best of their phone cameras and space to save up pictures and videos. 

In fact, its cameras are exceptional. It has a 50MP f/1.9 main camera, a 12MP f/3.4 periscope one (with 5x optical zoom), and a 20MP f/1.8 ultra-wide one.

While that’s not quite as many lenses as some rivals, it’s got all the most important kinds accounted for, and they all perform very well.

From portrait shoots to wide landscapes, zoomed photos, and close-up subjects, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro could cope brilliantly with just about every kind of photo. It even does a great job in low-light conditions.

And while our focus is the rear snappers, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro also has a decent setup on the front, with a 13MP f/2.4 camera joined by a time-of-flight (ToF) sensor for sensing depth. Also, there are loads of photography modes and tools available on the Huawei Mate 40 Pro as well, from a light painting feature to a dedicated moon photography mode.

Release date: November 2020

OS: Android 10


Storage: 256/512GB

Battery: 4,400mAh

Rear camera: 50MP + 12MP + 20MP

Front camera: 13MP


5. OnePlus 9 Pro

The OnePlus 9 Pro is by far the best camera phone the company has put out at the time of its launch.

It has a 48MP f/1.8 main camera, an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto one (with 3.3x optical zoom), a 50MP f/2.2 ultra-wide one, and a 2MP monochrome one, for boosting black and white shots. Of those, the ultra-wide is arguably the most notable, as it has a freeform lens design that reduces the ‘barrel’ distortion often found at the edges of ultra-wide shots taken on other phones.

The cameras on the OnePlus 9 Pro were also developed in collaboration with Hasselblad. This enables the phone to capture accurate colors in photos.

The OnePlus 9 Pro has powerful manual controls, it also works well when taking photos in auto, so this is a strong point-and-shoot choice. With video recording at up to 8K quality too, and a capable 16MP front-facing camera, the OnePlus 9 Pro is a good all-rounder as far as photography goes – and in most other ways.

Release date: March 2021

OS: Android 11

RAM: 8/12GB

Storage: 128/256GB

Battery: 4,500mAh

Rear camera: 48MP + 50MP + 8MP + 2MP
