Best Sprint Phones Android Central 2020
If Sprint's your wireless carrier of choice (or contract commitment), you have access to a heap of Android phones that you can buy or lease no matter your budget. Whether you want a flagship from Samsung or a less expensive Motorola option, or anything in between, here are the best Sprint phones you can buy right now!
- Does it all: Samsung Galaxy S10+
- Excellent camera: Google Pixel 4 XL
- S Pen champ: Samsung Galaxy Note 10+
- Two screens are better than one: LG G8X
- Budget hero: Google Pixel 3a
- One-handed flagship: Samsung Galaxy S10e
As it stands, the Samsung Galaxy S10+ is still one of the best phones on the market. Samsung's glass/metal design is exquisite, as is the 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a Quad HD resolution. Performance is blazing fast thanks to the Snapdragon 855 processor + 8GB of RAM, and you can get up to 1TB of internal storage. Since it's been out for about a year at this point, the S10+ is also dramatically cheaper than it was at launch.
If you want a phone that can take the best pictures possible, the Pixel 4 XL should be at the very top of your shopping list. Its dual rear cameras capture gorgeous photographs, with the zooming capabilities and low-light mode being especially impressive. We're also big fans of the fluid 90Hz display, super-fast face unlock system, and matte glass back. Battery life isn't the greatest, but it's enough to get most folks through a full day just fine.
Samsung's Galaxy Note series is one of the most popular out there, and the Note 10+ is another prime example of why so many people flock to this series year after year. It's equipped with a large 6.8-inch AMOLED display, three rear cameras, a whopping 12GB of RAM, and a huge 4,300 mAh battery. Then there's the iconic S Pen, which allows you to draw/doodle to your heart's content, in addition to control certain aspects of the Note 10+ remotely.
The LG G8X is one of the more unique phones you can buy right now. It comes with a Dual Screen accessory that adds a secondary screen to the phone, which gives you double the space to browse the web, watch YouTube videos, check your email, etc. It may not look very elegant, but it's a multitasker's dream. Outside of the Dual Screen attachment, the G8X packs a 6.4-inch OLED display, Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM, and a 4,000 mAh battery.
The Pixel 3a brings the same main camera available in the Pixel 4 down to a much more affordable price, making it the best camera you can get at this price by a longshot. The hardware has been scaled back to match the price point, but it all comes together pretty well for the money. Performance is solid, battery life is mostly reliable, and you'll get guaranteed software updates/security patches through May 2022. Oh, and there's a 3.5mm headphone jack.
If you hate how big phones have become over the years, you're not alone. Luckily, the Galaxy S10e packs everything that makes the S10+ great into a much smaller package without making many compromises. You might even prefer its side-mounted fingerprint sensor over the in-display sensor on the S10+, and the flat display means less distortion when you're browsing the web or watching videos. As far as compact phones go, this is one of the best.
Which one will you choose?
Sprint's has a solid collection of phones available, and if you've got the means to afford it, we strongly recommend going with the Samsung Galaxy S10+. The hardware, display, cameras, and software features all add up to get the job done no matter your needs. This is a phone that truly delivers on all fronts, and while it's not cheap, you definitely get what you pay for here.
For about the same money, you can get a cleaner software experience and even better cameras with the Google Pixel 4 XL. The hardware isn't quite as impressive as what you get with the S10+ and it lacks both a headphone jack and expandable storage (plus the battery life isn't great), but depending on your wants/needs, it could very well be the better purchase.
Lastly, for shoppers that are doing what they can to keep costs low, the Pixel 3a is one of the best mid-range phones available. It offers a fantastic user experience no matter how you slice it, the camera is far better than it has a right to be, and you just can't argue with that price.
