Which OnePlus phone is best?

The best OnePlus phone right now is the OnePlus 11. You get everything you need in an Android flagship, including the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset with mmWave 5G, outstanding cameras, sublime 120Hz AMOLED panel, and bloat-free software that's a delight to use. In short, it is among the best Android phones you can get right now.

If you need the best value, I'd suggest going with the OnePlus 10T. The device delivers better battery life, and while it misses out on some extras, it is a good all-round device. And if you want a budget-focused option, the Nord 2T continues to be my choice. 

On the other hand, if you're looking for a more budget-focused phone, the Nord N30 is a good choice in the U.S. The phone has reliable hardware with 5G connectivity and a reliable 5,000mAh battery, and it offers a lot of value.
