Apple's most colorful iPhone X is also its most affordable 2018 model.
The iPhone XS adds some impressive camera improvements to the already-great iPhone X. But you should seriously wait and see what the lower-priced XR coming in October is like.
The ultrapricey Note 9 is one of the year's best phones. But unless you're in dire need of an upgrade, the smart move is to wait for what the next iPhone, Pixel and even Galaxy S10 bring.
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-sized body -- but it's not as huge a leap up as you might think.
The Galaxy S9 is a nice incremental upgrade, but its low-light camera isn’t a game-changer and some new features fall far behind the iPhone X. S8 owners can skip, but it's a good upgrade from older Androids.
iPhone X remains a winning evolution of the iPhone, but at this point, you’re better off waiting for what Apple has on deck in September.
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 LG G6 is still a decent phone if you can find it cheap.
With the Galaxy Note 9 just around the corner, now's a bad time to buy a new Galaxy Note 8 -- wait for the Note 9 to go on sale and the Note 8's price will surely drop.
The LG G7 ThinQ is a really good phone, but one that fails to distinguish itself from more compelling offerings from Samsung, OnePlus and Google.
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 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 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 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.
The iPhone 5S is not a required upgrade, but it's easily the fastest and most advanced Apple smartphone to date.
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 7 Plus is one of the best point-and-shoot cameras ever -- and it's a great phone, too.
With a long list of features you want and only a few that you don't, there is no better budget phone than Motorola's Moto G5 Plus.
