The Motorola Razr is the most personal phone I've ever used. The foldable screen clamshell shape opens the door to redefining our relationship with mobile devices and how we use them. But I won't be buying one.
The Galaxy S10E is a terrific value for a compact, powerhouse phone, although it can't beat the OnePlus 6T's $550 price.
Apple may have skipped flashy extras on this year's phones, but the iPhone 11 is the best midtier model the company's ever made.
Though not water repellant like the Moto G7, the Galaxy A50 is worth the extra $50 for its superior camera and enduring battery.
There's no denying the Pixel 4 XL has one of the best cameras around, but its shortcomings don't justify its high price. Instead, consider the Note 10 or the OnePlus 7T. The Pixel 3 XL is another great candidate and is discounted at $600 now.
Samsung closed the camera gap with rivals and created a top-of-the-line phone for people who want the best Android has to offer.
The Moto G7 is the best budget phone we've tried hands down.
While we'd still recommend the iPhone XR first, the XS has some extras worth noting.
The Galaxy S10 Plus is an outstanding phone for 2019, although serious photographers will find its nighttime camera shots lacking. Competition, including from the upcoming Galaxy Note 10, is mounting.
The OnePlus 7 Pro's camera, performance and price make it the go-to premium Android phone of 2019.
The iPhone XR is the best iPhone for the price, delivering most of the advantages of the iPhone XS for hundreds less.
The LG G8 ThinQ is an objectively great phone, but with a high price tag and no standout features, it's not great enough to beat the Galaxy S10E.
Despite missing a few minor features, the Note 10's size, price and specs add up to the best all-around Samsung phone you can get right now.
The Galaxy Fold makes a convincing case for foldable phones, but wait for Samsung and others to fix inherent problems that keep it costly and plague the screen.
The Huawei P30 Pro's impressive camera skills and vibrant design easily beat the Galaxy S10 Plus and the Pixel 3, but political entanglements mean the phone won't come to the US.
The LG G8X is an attractive and competitively priced phone in its own right, if you can snag a deal. The useful second screen is also enticing for those unsure about the more expensive Galaxy Fold.
The Pixel 4 has one of the best cameras around, but it's expensive given its limited amount of storage. If you want more storage and a comparable camera, consider the OnePlus 7T or Galaxy S10, or the Pixel 3, which is only $500 right now.
As a budget phone, the Moto Z4 doesn't beat the similarly priced Pixel 3A XL or OnePlus 6T. So unless you're a 5G early adopter (which requires a $349 Mod), or you're already invested in Motorola's Moto Mod ecosystem, skip the Moto Z4.
