Starting at $700, the iPhone 11 is the best midtier model Apple has ever made of its flagship phone. Its cameras get an excellent new Night Mode and an ultrawide-angle camera adds extra detail in photos. Video is fantastic, too. Just be aware, though, that there isn’t a headphone jack.
The Huawei P30 Pro‘s photo skills rule the camera phone world. It takes astounding photos, its battery life is superb, and its vibrant design is beautiful. The basic version has 8 GB of RAM, all the better to store those amazing photos your’e going to be taking with this device.
Every mobile phone nowadays is looking to one-up the competition with features like pop-up selfie cameras, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and multiple rear cameras in addition to their selfie camera. The OnePlus 7 Pro has all the features du jour to keep us enticed. But it’s the phone’s $669 starting price that’s the deal maker. OnePlus’ followup for the US market, the OnePlus 7T is also an excellent mobile phone. And keep an eye out in 2020 for the next OnePlus flagship phone, as the company demoed its OnePlus Concept One at CES 2020, which included a ‘disappearing’ camera.
As the most wallet-friendly Galaxy S10 phone, the Galaxy S10E has a lot to offer. It’s a smaller Android phone, which is great for those looking for a small grip, it has a superfast Snapdragon 855 chipset and a lengthy battery life. It can also wirelessly charge other phones and accessories.
The Pixel 3A shaves a few features off of 2018’s Pixel 3: It’s not water-resistant, doesn’t have wireless charging, and it maxes out at 64GB of storage. But it adds a headphone jack and keeps the same amazing Night Sight camera that can shoot great photos in the dark. (Daytime photos look amazing, too.) It’s because of its great value that the phone earned a CNET Editors’ Choice.
The Moto G7 is one of the most affordable and reliable phones. Though its single speaker doesn’t offer the greatest sound, and it takes mediocre low-light photos and video, the G7 has dual rear cameras, an enduring battery life and a sleek design — all essential in budget phones. It also charges really quickly, which is useful when you need to juice up while on the go.
