This year has undoubtedly been one of the best for the device family Android One, in large part it was due to Nokia, a brand that has bet fully on the Google program, although Xiaomi and Motorola have not been left behind and have presented some options that have called our attention and that are also part of Android One .
If you don't know what the phone numbers of the program are Android One, So let's do a quick review. This is the Google program where manufacturers use a pure version and with slight modifications of Android, in this way they offer a user experience almost similar to that of the Pixels, because basically the only thing they modify is the camera application, although Sometimes they get to add some extra settings or features without this being annoying to the user.
On the other hand, all Android One phones offer 3 years of security updates and 2 years of operating system, and together with Google Pixels are the phones with the best update policy on Android.
Now that you know what Android One is, it's time to review what were the best of the year:
1- Nokia 9 PureView
Approximate price: 13,600 MXN
Nokia's high-end became undoubtedly the best Android One of the year, as it was the only high-end 2019, which was also the first phone in the world with 5 rear cameras.
The phone stands out for its good performance, and its photographic quality, however it is still far from matching these two points compared to other high-end this year, although that is why it is still a good option if you want the best Android One of this year
2- Nokia 7.2
Approximate price: 7,500 MXN
Although this phone is expected to arrive in Mexico at the beginning of next year, the Nokia 7.2 is not only one of the best Android One of the year, but also one of the best mid-range of the year.
This device stands out for its great design, its triple rear camera with Zeiss optics and a screen capable of playing HDR content, in fact, we can say that it is the best mid-range to enjoy the best Android experience after the Pixel 3a.
3- Xiaomi Mi A3
Approximate price: 4,000 MXN
Although this year Xiaomi only opted for an Android One phone that caused a lot of controversy on the screen with HD + resolution, the reality is that this is one of the best phones with cost / benefit ratio if you want a phone with pure Android and constant updates.
The camera is another of the things that stand out of the Mi A3, because although it is a little behind other mid-range, I do not think that today there is a better camera on a cell phone for that price.
4- Motorola One Vision
Approximate price: 6,200 MXN
Motorola also opted for Android One this year, and presented its first mid-range with night mode and Android One. The One Vision was also one of the first devices on the market with a 48 megapixel camera, and although it only comes with a double rear camera, the The reality is that it is a great option especially because Motorola added its Moto Actions, so we can use its famous gestures to activate the camera, navigation or flashlight with gestures without losing the advantages of Android One.
5 – Motorola One Action
Approximate price: 5,400 MXN
On the other hand we have the One Action, a device very different from all other devices on the list, and it is the only one that has a camera designed and designed for action. To do this it uses a wide angle of 117 degrees with some software modifications that allow us to record without problem in motion and even with one hand.
It would have been perfect if the One Vision had the action camera of the One Action, but that does not mean that both are great options if you do not want to spend a lot of money and want a good mid-range with pure Android.
