Best AT&T Phones Android Central 2020

With a plethora of excellent Android devices to choose from, the best AT&T phones can get a bit lost in the mix. If you're a little overwhelmed by all of the options and want some help determining which AT&T phone is the right for you, you've come to the right place.

Best overall: Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

Staff pick

Need a powerful Android phone that can do it all? Look no further than the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. It has a big, brilliant 6.9-inch display, a Snapdragon 865+ processor, 5G support, and a 108MP main camera backed by a 50X telephoto and an ultra-wide. Of course, it's also water-resistant, and it supports not just wireless charging, but reverse wireless charging, and of course, the S Pen stylus.

Best compact phone: Samsung Galaxy S20

The Galaxy S20 offers almost everything you'll find in the Note 20 Ultra (minus the S Pen) in a much smaller, more affordable package that you can actually use one-handed. You get the same outstanding build quality, fantastic cameras (though no 108MP sensor or Space Zoom tech here), and even similarly impressive battery life. This is one of the few small phones without major compromises.

Best wired audio: LG V60 ThinQ

For Android lovers in search of an alternative to Samsung, the LG V60 is a great option. It has a 6.8-inch OLED display with tight bezels and great colors, and LG's Quad DAC is unrivaled in wired audio quality. Even more interesting, you can add a second screen to the V60 for an easier time multitasking, taking photos, or even gaming with customizable virtual controls.

Constant updates: Google Pixel 4 XL

What better way to stay up to date with Android than to buy straight from the source? The Pixel 4 XL is the first in line for any new versions of Android and features high-end specs like a Snapdragon 855 processor. It also takes incredible photos using machine learning; one of the most impressive capabilities of the Pixel's camera is its Astrophotography mode, which lets you shoot stunning photos of the stars.

Best affordable phone: LG Stylo 5+

Not everyone needs to spend upwards of $1000 on a flagship phone. For a fraction of the price, the LG Stylo 5+ still nets you a large 6.2-inch screen, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, a large 3500mAh battery, and even a stylus for precise touch input (though it isn't pressure-sensitive like the Note 10's S Pen). It even carries over the same premium feel of the other phones, with a sleek glass-and-metal design.

Best foldable phone: Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G

The Galaxy Z Flip 5G brings back the clamshell form factor of the early aughts, allowing you to have a 6.7-inch screen that folds in half to fit much more easily into your pocket. It features the powerful Snapdragon 865 processor, with support for AT&T's 5G networks and the same great Android 10 experience you get on Samsung's more traditional devices.

Being one of America's largest carriers has its perks, one of them being the wide variety of devices you can choose from. We've narrowed those choices down to what we think are the best AT&T phones money can buy — all that's left is for you to decide which of those is right for you. If you want the most well-rounded phone in AT&T's selection, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is the obvious choice that meets almost everyone's needs.

Its modern metal and glass design feels just as good as it looks, the 120Hz display makes the S Pen feel more responsive than ever, and the massive camera system lets you take fantastic photos in almost any situation. If you value a compact form factor above all else, though, the Galaxy S20 will suit you equally well, and at a much lower price.

Of course, Samsung isn't the only brand doing great things; the LG V60 is another well-rounded flagship with a large screen, tight bezels, and the ability to attach a secondary screen that expands its capabilities. If you're after timely updates and a camera that performs spectacularly well in low light, there's also no beating the Pixel 4 XL, especially if you like to dabble in astrophotography from time to time.
