Review of the Top Android Models ‎

There are so many different handset options out there that you might find it a bit difficult to decide which is best for you. ‎To help you with your decision, we’ve put together this guide, which outlines each of the models we believe is worth your ‎consideration.‎


Samsung has consistently performed well as a mobile phone manufacturer for years now and shows no signs of slowing ‎down. Here are some of its latest releases.‎

Galaxy S21 series

‎1. Samsung Galaxy S21‎

While this is the ‘base’ model in the series, the Samsung Galaxy S21 is an incredibly capable handset with impressive ‎specs. With a powerful chipset, long battery life, and improved camera software, this 169g handset comes in a palm-‎friendly 6.2-inch display size. Available in 4 sophisticated colours - Phantom Gray, Phantom Pink, Phantom Violet, and ‎Phantom White - the Samsung Galaxy S21 is great for the budget-conscious looking for a phone with similar specs as the ‎Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus.‎

‎2. Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus‎

The mid-range S21 Plus offers everything the base model does and then some. Just like the Samsung Galaxy S21, the Pro ‎version has 5G capabilities. An excellent all-round phone, the new design it features only adds to its appeal. Available in 3 ‎different colours at M1 - Phantom Black, Phantom Silver, and Phantom Violet - you’ll also get to experience the ‎convenience of its in-display fingerprint scanner and facial recognition biometrics. Beyond the familiar Samsung ‎brilliance, its triple rear camera setup which includes a 12MP Ultra-Wide, 12MP Wide, and 64MP Telephoto lens makes ‎it one of the best when shooting outdoors.‎

‎3. Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra‎

Samsung’s flagship device in this latest Galaxy S series really is a cut above the other S21 handsets, as you can tell from ‎its improved specifications. Labelled one of the most powerful phones in the series, the Samsung Galaxy Ultra S21 Ultra ‎has the largest display at 6.8-inch and battery at 5,000mAh. Delivering a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, dynamic display, ‎and S Pen support, working fast and swift on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is a breeze.‎

Galaxy Note20 series

‎1. Samsung Galaxy Note20 5G‎

The Samsung Galaxy Note20 delivers everything you’d expect from one of the world’s biggest brands, offering the ‎latest technology and stunning designs at a great value. As beautiful as it is powerful, this handset is a fun and versatile ‎option. With its 6.7-inch display and S Pen support, you’ve got a wide canvas to work and play with! A PC in your pocket, ‎you can use this 192g mobile device to turn your notes into powerpoint presentations. Built with 3 rear and 1 selfie ‎camera, you’ll be able to capture top-notch images.‎

‎2. Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G

The Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G is really something else when it comes to handsets. An incredible camera, high ‎refresh rate, and more makes this device a powerhouse. Offering top specs in almost every category, its camera setup is ‎one to keep an eye out for. Topping the charts of the mobile photography game, its standard rear lens boasts a 108MP ‎sensor that turns every recording or photo into a masterpiece. After you’ve captured every corner of the world in the ‎highest resolution, its internal memory space that goes up to 512GB will keep everything safe and sound for you.‎


If a stunning display, long battery life, unique look, and great software is everything you're looking for in a phone, then ‎the gorgeous OnePlus 8T is the one for you. A wonderfully capable mobile phone offering a range of top-shelf ‎specifications including amazing refresh rate, lightning-fast charging and so much more, the One Plus 8T is ideal for the ‎gamers who love an immersive gaming session. 6.55-inches in display size, you’ll have a wide screen to edit the images ‎captured using its Quad camera system that includes a 48MP Wide, 16MP Ultra-Wide, 5MP Macro, and 2MP ‎Monochrome lens.‎


The latest Xiaomi phone that’s making a huge impact on the market is the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro. With 5G compatibility plus ‎plenty of processing power and more, it’s one of the best Android phones available at the moment. Designed with top ‎processing power, a snappy fingerprint scanner, and a good main camera, the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro has a few strong suits. ‎Using the Snapdragon 865 processor, together with its 144Hz refresh rate, you can rest assured that you’ll experience ‎supersonic speeds.‎


For fans of the brand, Oppo’s new phone released just this year (2021) that’s most certainly holding its own against every ‎other Android phone out there right now is the Find X3 Pro. Built with a 6.7-inch LTPO AMOLED display that boasts a ‎‎120Hz refresh rate, despite weighing only 193g, this 5G-capable smartphone packs a punch with its 256GB internal ‎memory and 4500mAh battery capacity. Equipped with a rear quad-camera setup - 50MP Wide, 50MP Ultra-Wide, ‎‎13MP Telephoto, 3MP Microscope - you’ll be able to capture every moment spectacularly. ‎


HUAWEI has been churning out innovative handsets consistently over the years. In 2020, the HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro 5G ‎was released, boasting stunning hardware, an excellent triple rear camera setup, and a crisp 6.76-inch OLED HDR10 ‎display. This mobile device did not disappoint at all. ‎

What’s the Best Android Phone Right Now?‎

The best Android device differs depending on your requirements, so it’s impossible to label one specific handset as being ‎the very best. ‎

Instead, make a list of the must-have features and a few nice-to-haves, then review the handsets that fall within your ‎budget to determine which one checks most of the boxes on your list.‎
