Smartphones are the most popular consumer electronic devices on the planet, and with continued innovation in hardware and software, they only get better. In this article, we’ll be looking at all of the best phones available today for you to buy right now. We’ve gone through hundreds of smartphone reviews to bring you a curated list of the best Android phones on the market to date.
1 1. The Samsung Galaxy S9 is a powerful phone that’s waterproof and has a long lasting battery.
1.1 The Galaxy S9 is one of the best phones you can buy. It has an amazing camera, a long lasting battery, and is fast and powerful. It has a beautiful screen and is waterproof. It’s also dustproof and has a headphone jack. If it weren’t for the price, the Galaxy S9 would be a perfect choice for many people. It is a flagship phone, capable of meeting the needs of the most serious phone-users. However, Samsung was able to squeeze a huge amount of performance out of this phone. Plus, it’s no doubt one of the best phones on the market right now. All that said, some phones cost a ridiculous amount of money, and have unique features that prove that they are the best smartphone on the market. So we’re just going to start this article and say, “buy the phone you’d want in a dating relationship”, and let’s proceed from there. The Samsung Galaxy S10 is perhaps the phone that’s selling for the most money right now.
1.2 It’s an amazing device, but it’s not without its own issues. Although the refresh rate on this thing is incredible, it can slow down, especially in some apps. The battery life isn’t the greatest, but phone calls and Netflix work just fine. And finally, there’s the weird spot where the speaker is recessed. Given that this is a premium flagship phone, there are bound to be some of those things holding you back from buying this phone immediately. However, when considering any phone, get yourself a developer release, or a carrier exclusive, if possible. Those phones are bringing shiny new features to the table, assuredly making many more money than the standard Samsung offering. However, they may come with hefty prices to match, and you may have to deal with a few kinks. This is one of the best phones to buy right now. The Samsung Galaxy S10 is definitely a great phone, but it doesn’t come without its issues.
2 2. The iPhone XS is Apple’s flagship phone, and it comes with many great features.
2.1 The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are Apple’s flagship phones, and they are great for most people. However, if you’re a true Apple fan, you might want to consider splurging on the iPhone XR.This year’s iPhone introduced many of the changes from last year’s iPhone SE, such as an aluminum frame, a proper portrait mode, speedier performance, IP68 water resistance. If you prefer the big screen of the traditional iPhone, then you might also want to consider the iPhone 11 Pro.
2.2 The iPhone 11 Pro offers more screen real estate than the iPhone XS/XR, and it also features a front-facing FaceID button and biometric authentication for added security. We highly recommend having Face ID enabled on all new iPhones since it is quicker than unlocking with a TouchID or facial recognition. If you’re looking for more budget options, there are several great options in the $399-range. Many of these phones are the first to ship with Android 10 after the software update officially launches, and you are forced to deal with less performance.
2.3 For an absolutely latest phone, look no further than the OnePlus Nord. This phone has almost all of the upgrades and technologies that the cheaper iPhones ship with and performs incredibly well for what it is. As a side note, if you break down and decide to buy an Android phone, then you may want to try one of the budget Android phones like the Moto G7 X, Moto G7 Plus, or the Xiaomi Mi10. Although the hardware of these lower end devices may not be top of the line, they perform almost as well as some of the best flagships and can be cheaper than an iPhone. It’s the first step into cross-compatibility for many Android enthusiasts. Some older Android devices, like the OnePlus One, can function on iPhones, albeit with a blurry camera experience.

3.1 Google’s Pixel 3 XL is a great smartphone for tech lovers. It has a large screen, great camera quality, and an advanced processor that makes it a pleasure to use.

4.2 The phone is also equipped with dedicated physical fingerprint sensors on the back panel, which is a nice touch. If you find it a little wasteful that you’re paying $1000+ for a phone that can only play 1080p video, the OnePlus 8T is a step up from its bigger brother. This phone features a 6.55-inch Full HD OLED display, Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, 12 MP rear camera, and an ultra-wide 19 MP ultra-wide camera. Storage options come in at 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.
