✅Recommended if: you want a stylus to use with your smartphone; you don't mind going with a refurbished phone; battery life is a major selling point for you.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra is a precursor to the current generation S24, which is featured in our latest best Android phones index. As you can imagine, the S24 predecessor is well-liked by those who enjoy the Galaxy ecosystem, featuring a bright 6.8-inch AMOLED screen, IP68 dust and water resistance, and a powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. Many also appreciate this phone for its battery life of up to nearly two days and its user-friendly One UI 5.1.

Operating the camera leaves a little bit to be desired, but this is still a good deal on a pretty great refurbished Android phone.
