Best AT&T Phones Android Central 2020

AT&T is one of the most popular carriers in the United States. Unsurprisingly, that means it sells a plethora of excellent Android phones to give customers as much choice as possible when shopping for their next handset. If you're a little overwhelmed by all of the options and want some help determining which AT&T phone is the best for you, you've come to the right place.

Best overall: Samsung Galaxy S10+

Staff pick

Need a powerful Android phone that can do it all? Look no further than the Galaxy S10+. It's got a big, brilliant 6.4-inch AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 855 processor, and three great cameras — one standard, one ultra-wide, and one telephoto. Of course, it's also water-resistant, and it supports not just wireless charging, but reverse wireless charging, which lets you top up accessories like Samsung's Galaxy Buds.

Productivity machine: Samsung Galaxy Note 10+

The Note 10+ is nearly identical to the S10+ in a lot of ways, but you get a more modern design with tighter bezels, faster charging, and of course, the mighty S Pen stylus. With it, you can take notes, draw, or even use the built-in button as a remote shutter for taking photos and videos. There's a new built-in video editor, and the same great triple-camera array for capturing anything from a distance or up close.

Best wired audio: LG G8X ThinQ

For Android lovers in search of an alternative to Samsung, the LG G8X is another great option. It has a 6.4-inch OLED display with tight bezels that make the phone mostly usable with one hand, and LG's Quad DAC is unrivaled in wired audio quality. Even more interesting, you can add a second screen to the G8X for an easier time multitasking, gaming, or even taking photos.

Best camera: Google Pixel 4 XL

Google's been doing amazing things with its cameras for the last few years, and the Pixel 4 XL takes some of the best photos in mobile with great dynamic range, incredible Night Sight photos, and plenty of help from computational data. 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 gaming phone: Razer Phone 2

Whether you play a lot of games, watch a ton of movies, or are always listening to music, the Razer Phone 2 is an excellent phone for consuming all kinds of media. Its 120Hz display is faster than the panel on any other phone on the market, the Snapdragon 845 processor rips through everything you throw at it with ease, and the RGB Razer logo on the back is endless amounts of fun.

Best compact phone: Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung knocked it out of the park this year by making not just tremendous large-screened phones, but one that fits in your hand too. The S10e fits all of the same specs and features from the S10+ into a 5.8-inch phone that sacrifices the telephoto lens but keeps the ultra-wide. You might even like some of this phone's features better, since it has a traditional fingerprint sensor built into the power button.

You have plenty of options to choose from

Being one of America's largest carriers, AT&T can offer a wide variety of great phones with fairly flexible financing options. Of course, you can also buy outright to keep your monthly phone bill down.

If you want the most well-rounded phone in AT&T's Android selection, the Galaxy S10+ is the obvious choice that meets almost everyone's needs. Its modern metal and glass design feels just as good as it looks, the screen in second to none, and the triple camera system lets you get some great photos in almost any situation. If you want something a little smaller, though, you can also opt for the Galaxy S10e, which packs almost all of the same features in a more reasonable size.

Samsung isn't the only brand doing great things though; the LG G8X 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 the best cameras you can possibly buy, there's no beating the Pixel 4 XL, especially if you like to dabble in astrophotography from time to time.
