When it comes to deciding which Android phone a user should buy, it really varies depending on the phone’s features such as quality, range, colour, storage, and camera that the phone can offer based on the latest Android trends and versions and performance. So, here is a list of the latest Android phones still on the market.
Samsung Galaxy A54 5G
Although the upgrades were minor last year, the more contemporary design pays homage to the S-series models and features an updated Exynos processor with built-in optical image stabilization that can help the 50MP camera with a 12MP ultrawide and a 5MP macro sensor capture images of people, animals, food, places, and more to a respectable extent. The A54 won’t, however, take the sharpest pictures in the dark, but in ZDNET’s testing, they found that the image results were pleasingly clear and had just the right amount of saturation to appeal to most users.
Google Pixel 7
The Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro’s dual/triple camera arrays combined with the company’s computing power put it ahead of the competition and in a class of its own. The Pixel 7’s images and video offer users the best quality and surprisingly detailed up-close shots thanks to the cameras that can record at up to 4K resolution at 60fps (frames per second) from naturally coloured photo and video captures. Additionally, battery life has significantly improved over last year’s Pixel 6, which will help when you are looking for games for your Android.
Google claims that users can get up to 72 hours between charges if you enable the “Extreme Battery Saver” option in the phone’s settings. Overall, it turns out that it’s not just the low price that’s attractive – there’s a lot more to like. The Pixel 7’s photo smarts make it one of the best options for busy Instagram users, and the big increase in battery life is also a welcome improvement.
Samsung Galaxy S23 ULTRA
The Samsung Galaxy S23 ULTRA smartphone has arguably the best-looking display on the market, excellent brightness, and a quad-camera setup on the back that includes a high-resolution 200MP camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera, a pair of telephoto units (10x and 3.5x), as well as a 12MP selfie camera on the front. Additionally, it still includes an integrated S Pen stylus for notetaking, drawing, and other uses. In addition, the S23 Ultra this year has received several more subtle improvements, such as storage configurations that start at 256GB (rather than 128GB last year), a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset that is one of the most powerful mobile platforms that Samsung has tested, and a boxier form factor that makes the phone easier to hold and use for writing.
The OnePlus 11 stands out among the competition with its charging speed, which is quickly taken for granted once you realize that the phone won’t be sitting in an outlet for two hours a day. Maurice Klaehne, senior market research analyst at Counterpoint Research, said: “The 80W charger offers a significant increase in charging speed over current market standards, and we expect more OEMs to add fast charging support to future devices.” The phone also features a large 6.7-inch AMOLED 120Hz display, a 5000mAh battery, a triple camera with a powerful 50MP primary lens, the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, and more.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4
The Z Flip 4 is a great product and is much improved with the upgrade. For example, you get longer battery life along with quicker charging and a more potent chipset, but pretty much everything else is unchanged from the previous model. The Z Flip 4 is much superior, however, as it comes with all the software benefits of Android 12L and a flexible display that can expand from 6 point 2 inches to 7 point 6 inches from Samsung. To create a more consistent, robust, and lightweight form factor, Samsung has also made some changes to its industrial design.
