The Moto G7 is the best budget phone we've tried hands down.
Galaxy S10 Plus is a killer phone for 2019, although serious photographers will find its nighttime camera shots lacking.
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 iPhone XR is the best iPhone for the price, delivering most of the advantages of the iPhone XS for hundreds less.
While we'd still recommend the iPhone XR first, the XS has some extras worth noting.
The Pixel 3's truly exceptional cameras and AI-powered call screening give it an edge on the other great phones in 2018's crowded winners' circle.
The Moto G6 is a sublime value, despite its minimal drawbacks.
The supersize iPhone XS Max crams a 6.5-inch screen and all of the same great features of the iPhone XS into a Plus-size body -- but it's not as huge a leap up as you might think.
The Galaxy S10E is a terrific value for a compact, powerhouse phone, although it can't beat the OnePlus 6T's $550 price.
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.
The ultrapricey Note 9 is one of the year's best phones. But unless you're in dire need of an upgrade, the smart move is to wait for what the next iPhone, Pixel and even Galaxy S10 bring.
The OnePlus 6T is the most affordable, top-notch Android you can get. But if you already have the 6, don't feel the need to update.
The excellent Galaxy S10 shares the Galaxy S10 Plus and Galaxy S10E's best traits, albeit with less distinction.
The Galaxy S9 can still hold its own among 2019's smartphones, but wait for it to go on sale after the Galaxy S10 launch.
Buy Motorola's Moto Z3 if you're looking for a well-priced Android phone on Verizon today, not for the promised 5G upgrade module.
The iPhone 8 Plus is a great phone with a spectacular camera that offers a lot of what iPhone X has under the hood, but Apple will no doubt release an upgrade later this year.
The Pixel 3 XL is pricey for a phone with no expandable memory, but its standout camera and premium hardware make it one of the best phones of the year.
The iPhone 6S isn't the great deal it once was. For $100 more, respectively, the iPhone 7 delivers way more bang for the buck.
