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.
Excellent camera features aren't quite strong enough to overcome an awkward design, questionable battery performance and a sky-high price. Cheaper Galaxy S20 models will have broader appeal.
While we'd still recommend the iPhone XR first, the XS has some extras worth noting.
The iPhone XR is the best iPhone for the price, delivering most of the advantages of the iPhone XS for hundreds less.
The OnePlus 7 Pro's camera, performance and price make it the go-to premium Android phone of 2019.
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 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 S9 can still hold its own among 2019's smartphones, but wait for it to go on sale after the Galaxy S10 launch.
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.
iPhone X remains a winning evolution of the iPhone, and is worth a look -- if you can still find it on sale.
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 iPhone 6S Plus has a few key advantages that give it an edge for serious iPhone users, but its big body still may not fit for a lot of people.
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 LG G6 is still a decent phone if you can find it cheap.
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 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.
The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
