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 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.
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 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.
iPhone X remains a winning evolution of the iPhone, and is worth a look -- if you can still find it on sale.
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 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.
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 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 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.
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 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 iPhone 7 Plus is one of the best point-and-shoot cameras ever -- and it's a great phone, too.
The iPhone 8 has plenty of power under the hood, but lacks the extra camera features and design upgrade of the better iPhone 8 Plus and X.
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 gap between iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 isn’t as great as you think, and for the right price, this is still an excellent pick if you’re not chasing the latest bleeding-edge iPhone and want to save some money.
