The new iPhone SE looks like an iPhone 8 but works like Apple's top-of-the line iPhone 11 Pro and costs only $399.
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.
The Galaxy A51 proves that Samsung can make a good $400 phone that people will actually want to use.
The Galaxy S10E is a terrific value for a compact, powerhouse phone, although it can't beat the OnePlus 6T's $550 price.
Though not water repellant like the Moto G7, the Galaxy A50 is worth the extra $50 for its superior camera and enduring battery.
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.
Premium, pocketable and packed with all the features you need to level up your photography and power you through the day.
The excellent Galaxy S10 shares the Galaxy S10 Plus' and Galaxy S10E's best traits, albeit with less distinction.
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 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 Moto G7 is the best budget phone we've tried hands down.
The ultrapricey Note 9 is one of the year's best phones, but wait until Samsung announces its Galaxy Note 10 successor to make a decision.
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.
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 iPhone 6S isn't the great deal it once was. For $100 more, respectively, the iPhone 7 delivers way more bang for the buck.
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.
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.
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.
