Best T-Mobile Phones Android Central 2019

T-Mobile has a good lineup of phones at a variety of price points. For a no-compromise high-end phone, the Galaxy S10+ is the best phone available on the carrier right now. But not everyone wants to spend $1000 on a phone — we have several other great picks, ranging from top-of-the-line flagships to much more palatable, budget-range offerings.

Best of the best: Samsung Galaxy S10+

Staff pick

The Galaxy S10+ gives you everything you could ask for in a high-end phone. It has all of the latest and greatest specs, an industry-leading display, three great rear cameras that let you get a closer or wider shot at the touch of a button, and software that lets you customize to your heart's content. The hardware is beautiful and robust, and there's an expansive ecosystem of accessories built to support it.

Productive flagship: Samsung Galaxy Note 9

The Galaxy Note 9 is an incredible flagship, packing a huge 6.4-inch QHD display, a 4000mAh battery, and of course, the S Pen. In addition to writing, drawing, and signing documents, the newly redesigned S Pen lets you control the Note 9 remotely, which means you can take group photos or control music playback without ever touching the phone. With the recent update to Pie, the software is almost identical to that of the newer S10+.

Feature-packed: LG V40 ThinQ

The LG V40 is a compelling alternative to Samsung's offerings, with a speedy Snapdragon 845 chipset and a triple camera array that matches the S10+'s combination of standard, ultra-wide, and telephoto lenses. The V40 is loaded with video-centric camera features like manual controls and far-field microphones, and clean software that's a bit more focused on simplicity and connection to Google services.

Flagship value: OnePlus 6T

We all want a high-end flagship phone, but far fewer of us want to (or can) pay for it. That's where the OnePlus 6T comes in: at just $550, it gives you about 90% of the experience of the flagship competition. It's missing out on things like an IP water resistance rating, a truly top-end camera, and stereo speakers, but those are easy to give up in order to save a few hundred dollars. Plus, it has excellent software that's simple and fast.

Extra cheap: Moto E5 Play

The Moto E5 Play is all about value. For just $150 (or $6.25/month), you're getting a really solid and familiar Motorola experience that doesn't skimp on performance or software. Sure, it has a smaller 5.2-inch display and just 16GB of storage, but it's capable of the basic smartphone essentials, and you can always expand the storage with a microSD card. You can even remove its 2800mAh battery!

Moto E5 Plus

The Moto E5 Plus is one of our best overall picks for a cheap Android phone, and it's great that T-Mobile has it. It's basically a cheaper version of the higher-end Moto G7, with a 6-inch 18:9 display and a nice-looking design in a slick blue finish. The battery is also massive at 5000mAh, meaning the E5 Plus can easily last through the day and well into the next.

Budget pick

These are all of the best phones that T-Mobile offers, from the super-high-end down to some value-focused picks. No matter your budget or needs, there's something here for you. If you want the absolute best, you'll want to go for the Galaxy S10+, but for a fraction of the cost you can still get a great phone with the Moto E5 Plus{.nofollow} — and there's something else in each price bracket in between.
