The phones mentioned below have fantastic cameras, excellent daily performance, and are built to last for four, five, or even even six years. We’ll help you choose the greatest phone for you and make sure it’s worth the price because you always get what you pay for, no matter how much you’re spending.
2014 iPhone Pro
The iPhone 14 Pro is a kind of early adopter special since it ushers in some new ideas from Apple. You must upgrade to Pro if you want all the most recent and cutting-edge features.
Max iPhone 14 Pro
The larger sister of the 14 Pro, having a 6.7-inch screen, is the 14 Pro Max. Other than that, it is identical to the smaller variant, including the 48-megapixel primary camera and the new Dynamic Island status indication.
Pixel 7 Pro from Google
Thanks to Google’s unique chipset, the Pixel 7 Pro has a dependable good camera system, great everyday performance, and a few creative features. The best part is that it is slightly less expensive than the typical top-tier flagship.
2013 Apple iPhone
If you need a new iPhone but don’t want to upgrade to the 14 Pro, the iPhone 14 seems like the obvious decision. Yes, go ahead and purchase that one if your carrier is giving you a fair trade-in offer, ridiculously low interest rates for the 14, or you want the (slight) year-over-year enhancements.
Galaxy S22 Ultra from Samsung
Five cameras, a large, bright 6.8-inch OLED with up to 120Hz refresh rate, and, oh yeah, a built-in stylus are all features of the S22 Ultra. More than that, it feels like the culmination of slab-style smartphone development. It is the Note series’ replacement.
Apple 13-Mini iPhone
The Mini’s 5.4-inch screen is large enough for text messaging, email, web surfing, apps, video, and gaming while being significantly smaller than most other recent smartphones. If you’re coming from an iPhone 6, 7, or 8, it will also feel rather roomy. The majority of adults, even those with small hands, will be able to easily reach the entire screen with their thumb because it is also small enough. On this one, a PopSocket is not necessary.
Android Pixel 6A
The Pixel 6A adheres to the same budget phone formula Google has been using for years: give essential Google functionality in a basic, condensed hardware. Previously, that meant receiving the flagship phones’ camera systems. With the 6A, that recipe saw a little alteration. You now receive an older camera system along with the same Tensor custom chipset as the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. The Pixel 6A is a terrific all-around affordable smartphone that still has one of the best cameras in its class despite not having the newest technology. Although its chipset is a generation older than the very latest Pixel phones, performance is still excellent and you don’t lose out on many new features.
