Smartphone models are constantly being released, so staying up-to-date requires staying on top of things.
Our list of the best phone includes phones from Google, Samsung, Huawei, and more. Some have 5G connectivity, while others have foldable screens that fold out over and over again. Whatever your preference, there's something here for everyone.
iPhone XS Max
The iPhone XS Max is Apple's top-of-the-line smartphone. It features a 6.5-inch OLED display and runs on the A12 Bionic processor, which is 30 percent faster than the previous generation of chips. A 12MP wide-angle camera enables you to capture photos with a bokeh effect (background blur). You can also use Dual OIS to shoot videos in 4K at 60 fps and 1080p at 240 fps. The battery will last you all day too, as it has a capacity of 3,174 mAh.
Samsung Galaxy S10e
The Galaxy S10e is the smaller version of Samsung’s flagship smartphone, and it comes with everything you would expect from a premium device like this. You get a gorgeous OLED display, 4GB RAM, and 128GB storage, as well as an impressive 48MP camera on the back. If you want something smaller than the regular S10e but still want all the high-end features, then this is the phone for you.
OnePlus 7 Pro
OnePlus has been on an upward trajectory over the past few years, and while its latest flagship is no exception, it's also not quite as impressive as we'd hoped.
The OnePlus 7 Pro features several upgrades over the regular OnePlus 7, including an upgraded Snapdragon 855 chipset and 5G support (for when it eventually becomes available). Also included is a 6-inch diagonally curved OLED display with 3120 x 1440 pixel resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The display is HDR10 compliant, too.
XiaomiMi Mix 4S
The Mi Mix 4S is one of the most exciting smartphones that has yet to have an official release date. It's expected to feature a Snapdragon 8150 processor, a triple rear camera setup with 48 megapixels of resolution, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and an ultrasonic in-display selfie camera. The phone will also have a rumored 8K display resolution with a 90Hz refresh rate — making it perfect for gaming or watching videos.
Google Pixel 3 XL
Google’s Pixel 3 XL is the best Android phone for Android fans. It has a great camera, fast charging, a headphone jack, and an OLED screen. The Pixel 3 XL also has Google Assistant built-in and can use Google Lens to identify objects and read text from photos. If you want an iPhone, it’s worth waiting for the next iPhone 11 Pro Max 5G as that will be more powerful than this phone.
Huawei Mate 20 Pro 5G
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro 5G is the best phone of the year and one of the most powerful smartphones on the market right now. It has a 6.39-inch Quad HD+ (3120 x 1440) OLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and curved edges. It's powered by an octa-core Kirin 980 processor with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. There's also a massive 4,200mAh battery inside, along with IP68 water and dust resistance. The triple camera setup includes a 48MP main sensor along with a 16MP ultra-wide angle lens and an 8MP telephoto lens for 3X optical zoom support.
Samsung Galaxy Fold
The foldable phone is the future of smartphones, and Samsung's Galaxy Fold is the most impressive one we've seen so far. The phone will be available in April for $1,980, or $2,000 if you want the 4G version. It's a bit expensive, but it's also the first time we've seen a folding phone that works.
The foldable screen is just two displays put together with an aluminum frame in between them to make it look like one seamless screen. It's also got a battery that can charge wirelessly and has a headphone jack, so you don't have to carry around an adapter if you want to listen to music without Bluetooth headphones.
There are many options out there, and this guide will help you search for the perfect line of android phones. It's difficult to narrow down the list to just 07, as there are so many phone manufacturers that are worth looking into. The phones on this list run the gamut from affordable to super-expensive, with premium quality to match. Regardless of what you need in a device, one of these ten devices will be right up your alley.
