The best Android smartphones in the market
Best buying guide for Android phones
In our buying guide, we’ve selected the 10 best Android smartphones of the moment. We recommend that you take a look at it regularly as new ones could be added.
When it comes to buying, before you turn to an iPhone, we advise you to look at Android. Unlike Apple products, you have a lot of choices and there’s something for everyone.
Androids are available in all sizes, colours, and all have (at least those in our ranking) a superb design and incredible features (sealing, screen, cameras, battery life…).
Also, choosing an Android smartphone is all the more complicated because each manufacturer has many ranges of phones, each with its own qualities and flaws.
Samsung Galaxy S20
The Galaxy S20 is the best smartphone in Samsung’s S20 series. It’s compact, powerful and has a versatile photosensor system, although it may not be comparable to the S20 Ultra. The only major flaw of the S20 is battery life.
OnePlus 8 Pro
The OnePlus 8 Pro is arguably the first flagship of the manufacturer to finally integrate long-claimed functions such as wireless charging and an IP68 sealing.
The price has of course increased, with an 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage space, it remains a safe bet compared to its competitors of the same category.
The 8 Pro’s photosensor is the best OnePlus has developed to date, although it’s not comparable to its rivals, however its hardware is there to fill that gap.
Add to that the 5G, great design, and the best Android overlay on the market.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10
The Galaxy Note 10 has many advantages: a large screen, a breath-taking design, impressive photo sensors and it has almost all the high-end features you’d expect from a phone. We even forget the disappearance of the headphone jack.
But this comes at a cost, so unless you really need the S Pen, the S10 might be enough for you, otherwise, you can always turn to the Note 10 Standard.
Oppo Find X2 Pro
The Oppo Find X2 Pro is phenomenal in every way. Its 6.7-inch QHD slab, 10-bit colour display and 120Hz refresh rate are the perfect combinations for a sublime display.
Oppo didn’t stop there as the Find X2 Pro is compatible with the fastest cable charging of the moment at 65 W. On the other hand, you will have to do without wireless charging.
Another advantage is that it has a high-level photo module with two 48MP lenses and a hybrid zoom up to 10x.
As for its pure performance, the Find X2 Pro is unbeatable for now, since under its hood there is a solid crew: a Snapdragon 865 5G chip, 512GB of storage and 12GB of RAM.
Realme X50 Pro
The Realme X50 Pro, Realme’s first 5G flagship, is an impressive and affordable device that doesn’t skimp on high-end features and features.
The Realme X50 Pro gives up certain elements such as waterproofing and fine design, but in return, it’s equipped with the latest Snapdragon 865 chip, 5G, 12GB RAM, a fast UFS 3.0 ROM and an incredible 65W “SuperDart” fast charge, which can charge 60% of the battery in just 15 minutes and a full charge in just 35 minutes.
The OnePlus 8 is a fantastic smartphone. It is rare to achieve such a high level of quality in terms of design, functionality and performance at such a low price.
The flaw of the OnePlus 8 is that its main photosensor is more efficient in close-up than in macro. It’s an impressive Android with, among other things, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chip, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage space and a 4300 mAh battery.
Galaxy Z Flip
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is not perfect. It is expensive, it has only two main objectives and its fingerprint reader is disappointing.
With the Z Flip, Samsung has succeeded in the bet of compact and foldable shape, and in comparison, all the other flagships of 2020 seem unsightly and oversized.
Design aside, the Z Flip is powerful and has great functions. If you can afford to spend that much then don’t hesitate and get the Z Flip.
Red Magic 5G
The Red Magic 5G is undeniably one of the best gamer smartphones on the market. Its 144 Hz refresh rate screen and stereo speakers are its biggest assets.
Some of its aspects are less suitable for the general public, such as its imposing design and features that target players. We regret that his fingerprint reader is unclear.
Oppo Reno 10x Zoom
The Reno 10x Zoom looks a lot like the OnePlus 7 Pro, but it has a better photosensor, which will appeal to photo buffs. It’s a combination of great components, a powerful battery (4065 mAh) and an incredible design.
Getting a Snapdragon 855 chip and a full-screen display without a notch for less than €800 (when it’s launched) is a good deal, but its real asset is the triple photo module. With a 48MP main lens and a 5x optical zoom that can simulate 10x, it’s one of the few sensors on the market that can compete with the Huawei P30 Pro.
Its flaws include an AMOLED display that is only 1080p and speakers a little below.
Although it looks the same as the Edge Plus flagship, the Motorola Edge is a little more affordable. It’s equipped with the same 6.7-inch Endless Edge OLED display as the Plus, giving it a top-of-the-line look.
It has a generous 4500mAh battery that can comfortably last up to two days with a single charge.
On the other hand, its hardware is somewhat disappointing, it is equipped with a Snapdragon 765 chip while most of its rivals have an 865, its triple rear photo module is only decent.
It may not be perfect, but the Edge remains a surprisingly beautiful 5G smartphone with pleasant user experience.
