✅Recommended if: phones with a long-term update guarantee are preferable to you; you've enjoyed past Galaxy devices you've owned; you want a phone that has some of Samsung's latest AI features.

❌Skip this deal if: you want a phone with industry-leading charging speeds; you're looking for a more affordable Galaxy phone model.

While the S24 Plus isn't listed on our index of the best Android phones, both of its siblings are, and this phone really isn't all that far off from either of those Galaxy phones. In any case, the S24 Plus offers a great upgrade-level phone experience, even for high-level performance needs like gaming. The basic S24 Plus already includes 12GB of RAM, as upgraded from the phone's last generation, as well as a super efficient Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. It also comes with a long battery life, a great suite of cameras, and IP68 dust and water resistance, among other features.

It's worth noting that the S24 Plus leaves a little something to be desired when it comes to charging speeds, though it generally charges fast enough for the average user. Additionally, If a low price is more of a priority for you, you might want to consider Samsung's entry-level Galaxy A series—though this is a great price for this premium-level phone.
