Got your eye on a new dream phone? Then you’ve picked the right time of year. Surely someone will buy it for you as a Christmas gift?
Or maybe not.
They might not know which phone you want. And you can’t come straight out and tell them – that’s not very Christmassy at all. No, what you need to do is hint, and hint like an expert.
Not sure how good your hinting game is? Then let us inspire you with a few perfect examples.
How to get a Samsung Galaxy Note9
The perfect hint: “Sorry, but I can hardly see what I’m doing. But maybe one day I’ll have a big display!”
When they hear the words ‘big display’, they’re going to head straight for the Note9. The 6.5-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED screen is Samsung’s largest Infinity Display ever, and it looks incredible. It covers almost the entire surface of the phone, and shows off everything in amazing detail. It’s not just one of the biggest smartphone displays around – it’s one of the best.

How to get a Huawei Mate 20 Pro
The perfect hint: “I’m fed up of running out of power. If only I had a phone that lasted more than a day!
The 4,200Mah battery on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is a monster, and from our experience, it keeps going well into the second day. That’s a rare feat for a premier smartphone. In fact, you’ll get about a day-and-a-half of use out of your new gift before you need to charge it again. And with the 40W SuperCharger included in the box, you’ll be able to get 70% of power in just 30 minutes, you lucky thing.

How to get a Sony Xperia XZ3
The perfect hint: “I wish I could feel like a proper gamer.”
If you love your mobile gaming, you’ll want to be unwrapping a Sony Xperia XZ3 on Christmas Day. Its Dynamic Vibration System lets you feel the action through your fingertips, in the same way that Sony’s DualShock PS4 controllers do.
The Xperia XZ3 will quite literally rock your gaming world - and it does the same for movies and music videos too, for an extra dose of realism.

How to get a Google Pixel 3
The perfect hint: “I’m soooo sick of these messy charging wires and plugs!”
If you make it known that you want to charge your phone wirelessly, surely they’ll take the hint and get you a Google Pixel 3. When it runs out of power, simply place it on the Pixel Stand accessory to start charging it up again. No plugs, no wires. Sorted.

How to get a OnePlus 6T
The perfect hint: “I’m sooooo fed up of waiting for my camera to launch.”
The OnePlus 6T has a super speedy camera, so you’ll never be hanging around waiting for it to spring into action. It launches and focuses incredibly fast, and uses optical image stabilisation to give you clear photos, even if your hands are a little shaky. If you’re into sporting or action photography, you’ll be taking some epic shots.
