At just over $1,000, the Oppo Reno 5G is the most affordable phone for those gung-ho about adopting 5G.
Though the LG V50 is a solid phone and one of the first to have 5G, it's not a worthwhile investment. Its high price can't compete with the OnePlus 7 Pro and national 5G coverage is sparse.
While the Oneplus 7 lacks the excitement of the 7 Pro, it's the sensible choice if you're shopping on a budget. Get this phone over the older 6T.
The OnePlus 7 Pro's camera, performance and price make it the go-to premium Android phone of 2019.
The Pixel 3A XL has the best camera for its price and a generously-sized screen. But if having a fast processor and more memory is a priority, get the OnePlus 6T instead.

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.
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 Moto G7 is the best budget phone we've tried hands down.
The excellent Galaxy S10 shares the Galaxy S10 Plus and Galaxy S10E's best traits, albeit with less distinction.
The Galaxy S10E is a terrific value for a compact, powerhouse phone, although it can't beat the OnePlus 6T's $550 price.
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.
Xiaomi's flagship phone is almost the perfect phone, and the company's making it available in even more countries. The bad news is the US isn't one of them.
Despite some software drawbacks, the Honor View 20 is a standout midprice phone with nearly everything.
Who needs a selfie camera when there's a second screen on the back of your phone?
Though you'll have to settle for a low-resolution display, you do get dual cameras and a big 4,230-mAh battery.
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.
