The Huawei P30 offers you a best-in-class camera setup and a terrific design while commanding a smaller price than the Samsung Galaxy S10, or even the S10E. It's a fantastic deal, but a hassle to buy thanks to geopolitics.
Buy the Moto E5 Plus if you're looking for a budget phone on Cricket. Otherwise, skip it in favor of a slightly pricier Moto G6 Play or Moto G6.
The Moto Z3 Play's two-day battery life is great, but at its current price, it can't compete with the OnePlus 6.
The iPhone SE is one year older, but its added storage options and strong performance running iOS 10 still makes it a great choice for small-phone fans.

The Red Hydrogen One is an exciting, eccentric phone aimed at creatives. But underwhelming video quality and rough software already have us pining for the sequel.
The iPhone 6 is an exceptional phone in nearly every way except its average battery life: it's thin, fast, and features the excellent iOS operating system. It was the best overall phone introduced in 2014.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro's impressive list of features puts it unquestionably among the top phones of the year. Shame you can't buy it in the US.
Lovers of big phones will find this a slightly cheaper alternative to the Galaxy S9 Plus that doesn't sacrifice that phone's sleek design and most important features.
