Apple’s new iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S22 series, and Google’s Pixel 6 Pro are 5G-ready in 2022. You’d think so, given their outrageous costs. You can profit from better download speeds even if you can’t afford today’s flagships. There are many inexpensive 5G phones, like the Google Pixel 6A, Samsung, OnePlus, and Motorola. The 2022 iPhone SE is 5G-capable.
5G is the next level of mobile communication but won’t replace 4G. 5G can boost drones, self-driving cars, and IoT gadgets. Its development in the US, UK, and the rest of the world has been quick, but it isn’t everywhere yet. Make sure 5G coverage is available – or will be soon – in your area before buying a 5G-enabled phone.
If you’re not in a 5G zone, buy the S22 Ultra 5G phone. It works on 4G. (albeit at lower speeds). You may not be in a 5G zone right now, but it may arrive in your area during the three years you’ve had your phone, so be prepared.
Every major phone maker now offers 5G phones, making it tough to choose. We’ve produced a list of our favorite 5G phones available currently.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max introduce several changes, including the Dynamic Island in place of the old notch, a new 48-megapixel camera system that has wowed us, and the new A16 Bionic processor. All of these improvements combine to create an experience that feels new and fast when compared to previous generations.
It’s the most expensive iPhone you can buy, especially if you go for the larger Max model, but if you want Apple’s top phone’s high performance and stellar camera quality, the iPhone 14 Pro is for you.
Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro
At $899, the Google Pixel 6 Pro is less expensive than competitors while providing more value. It has a premium camera setup, new AI features, a sharp display, and a distinct design. If you only have $600 to spend, get the lower-end Pixel 6, which has the flagship cameras and a large screen.
However, keep in mind that the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are just around the corner. If you don’t need an upgrade in the next week, it might be worth saving your money to either buy the new model or potentially get a discount on the 6 Pro.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra
The Galaxy S22 Ultra is the best phone Samsung currently makes, packing everything you’d expect from a premium flagship phone. It has a large, vibrant screen and an amazing rear camera setup (including a zoom lens unlike anything we’ve seen before). It’s bursting at the seams with power. This Android phone is not cheap, but it is the 5G phone to get if you want the best of the best in an Android handset.
Google 6A Pixel
The Pixel 6A replaces the Pixel 5A as Google’s $449 Android 12 phone. It has the same Tensor chip and many features as the $599 Pixel 6.
Pixel 6 has a 6.1-inch OLED screen and a 60Hz refresh rate. It has a 12.2-megapixel main camera and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera like the Pixel 5A. With the Tensor chip, photographs can benefit from Real Tone skin tone, Face Unblur, Night Sight for darker shooting, and Magic Eraser for erasing undesirable aspects.
Apple SE iPhone
The iPhone SE is Apple’s most affordable phone, but it still has superfast 5G. While it lacks the camera capabilities of the much more expensive iPhone 13 Pro, it runs the latest iOS 15 software and uses the same processor as the higher-end models, making it an excellent phone for everyday use and light gaming.
Apple iPhone 13 Mini
Apple’s new iPhone 14 lineup doesn’t contain a new iPhone Mini, but the iPhone 13 Mini is now $599. This phone is pocket-friendly and tiny. The 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Mini fits in even the smallest pant pockets. This little Apple iPhone doesn’t scrimp on camera or computing capability, despite its shorter battery life.
Galaxy Z Flip 3: The Galaxy Z Flip 4 is an updated version of Samsung’s smaller folding phone with improved specs. We haven’t reviewed the Z Flip 3 yet, so we can’t tell if it’s the “best” phone on this list. If you’re considering buying it, wait until we do.
The Z Flip folds into a smaller phone, like the Galaxy Fold tablet phone. This Samsung Galaxy phone boasts a 6.7-inch display when open, yet when folded it fits easily in trousers or jacket pockets. It’s a cheaper folding Samsung Galaxy phone with a lovely design, decent specs, and 5G.
5G Motorola Moto G
For $500, the Moto G Stylus 5G (2022) is one of the best stylus-equipped phones available right now, especially for the price. Android 12, 5G connectivity, a large 6.8-inch screen, and 256GB of storage are all included. Unfortunately, the phone will only receive one software update and three years of security updates, which is significantly less than the four years promised by Samsung for the Galaxy A53.
However, if you want a phone with a stylus, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which costs $1,200, is the next step up.
OnePlus 10 Pro
The OnePlus 10 Pro received a favorable rating in our review due to its sleek design, powerful performance, and competitive pricing. It could use a few tweaks, most notably to the camera, which is good but not great, but this flagship provides an excellent overall experience. If you’re looking for a high-end 5G phone that stands out from your friends’ iPhones and Galaxy phones, this is a good option
