Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro review: A gaming phone monster
But do you need all this power?
The Galaxy S21 Ultra had been the best Android phone yet with dual zoom lenses, a stellar display and excellent battery life. But that was before the Galaxy S22 Ultra debuted.
The powerful but expensive Sony Xperia 1 IV won't suit the average phone buyer, but it'll give a small community of users everything they could ask for.
The long-lasting TCL 30 V 5G gives you access to Verizon's fastest 5G coverage, but its camera and performance don't impress.
The OnePlus Nord N20 is surprisingly powerful for a $282 phone. It also looks far nicer than any other budget device. But its cameras and software update policy will let you down.
The ZTE Axon 40 Ultra proves to be a bargain of a flagship smartphone, but its under-display camera is both a fun gimmick and its Achilles' Heel.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 delivers better cameras, faster performance and a sleeker design for a lower price, but there's some trade-offs.
The Black Shark 5 Pro impresses, even as a gaming phone. It has physical shoulder buttons, solid battery life, ultra fast 120W charging and a nice 144Hz display.
The Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G could really use more CPU oomph, but this budget phone gives you a display and charging speeds worthy of far more expensive phones.
The TCL Stylus 5G promises swift note-taking at the ultimate value. Here are our initial impressions.
Google Play Protect may be free, but it’s not as effective mobile security as some third-party options.
The iPhone 13 mini is the most powerful small phone ever. It packs in great cameras and better battery life, plus class-leading performance.
Battery life and the 90Hz display are great — not much else is
The Nord 2T is another great mid-priced OnePlus phone, but one that could have used a few extra upgrades to cement its status above similar Samsungs and Pixels.
While the Honor Magic 4 Pro offers an entrancing box of tricks with its many cameras and top quality display, the phone trips up in a couple of crucial areas.
The Motorola Edge Plus (2022) has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, super-fast refresh rate and colorful screen in its favor. But too many key features are missing.
The iPhone SE 2020 is an outstanding phone for under $400, delivering fast performance and very good cameras in a compact design.
Sporting a lovely design, great display and killer performance, the Oppo Find X5 Pro is let down by its cameras and high price.
A powerful gaming phone that doesn’t correct past RedMagic mistakes
The Samsung Galaxy A53 might just be the best cheap Android phone right now, even if the Pixel 5a’s cameras outperform it. The A53 offers some of the best performance for a sub-$500 phone.
iOS 15 isn't a major overhaul, but there's a lengthy list of improvements in this version. Here's what to expect when you upgrade — and whether you should do so right now.
The Moto G Stylus (2022) is the latest affordable Motorola phone with a built-in stylus. Horrible performance, a bulky body, subpar cameras, and slow 10W wired charging undermines that effort.
Thanks to competitive specs, some unexpected features and a below-average price, the Realme GT 2 Pro has everything it needs to deserve your attention.
The Galaxy S21 FE has finally arrived. And while we're impressed by how few trade-offs this lower cost version of the S21 makes, it's hard to buy the phone with the Galaxy S22 now available.
Like the Galaxy S21, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus gets a lot of things right. It’s a big-screen phone with a beautiful display and capable cameras.
The Galaxy S20 FE packs all the best features of the Galaxy S20 into a more affordable package, but there are some trade-offs if you get this phone.
The rapid charging and display are outstanding on the Xiaomi 12 Pro, but a higher price than last year and some less stellar features mean it is not quite the deal its predecessor was.
The Moto G Power (2022) is a long-lasting budget phone just like its predecessors. But performance issues mean it's less of a bargain than previous models.
Sony’s imaging-focused phone drops the ball in other places
The Nubia RedMagic 7’s powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor is great at running Triple-A games and even better at making us forget about its flaws. It’s a fantastic gaming phone.
