Top 5G Enabled Cell Phones to Buy

May 12, 2022 •

5G connectivity expands cell phones’ capabilities in the home and outside of it, and the connectivity is now available on all major carriers. If you want to communicate via the latest wireless technology, here are some of the best cell phones that have 5G.

Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max

The Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max is one of the best-looking 5G cell phones, and that’s not just the best-looking in form.

Apple ProMotion technology increases refresh rates up to a maximum 120hz and have a variable refresh rate of 10hz for still images. That makes for a smooth display that actually manages battery life well. Videographers will also appreciate Cinematic Mode, which records 1080p at 30fps, and has several specialized features.

Of course, Apple’s flagship phone comes with the company’s latest A15 Bionic chip, multiple quality cameras, a large 6.7-inch screen and an intuitive iOS user interface.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 puts 5G connectivity in foldable form. If the phone didn’t bend over on itself, you could almost mistake the model for any company’s flagship Android phone.

The Galaxy Z Fold boasts a speedy Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, 12GB RAM, and multiple excellent cameras. Its display rivals most other phones’ in appearance, and it measures 7.6 inches. That’s enough to play videos while working — just fold the screen so that your boss doesn’t see.

Google Pixel 6 Pro

The Google Pixel 6 Pro is a clear frontrunner if you want Android performance with 5G. Google’s first in-house Tensor chip boosts both speed and battery life, while Google’s smooth software keeps everything running well.

Those fundamentals allow the Pixel 6 Pro to capitalize on its impressive 50MP and 48MP cameras fully. A sharp 6.7-inch screen lets you see the pictures clearly before sending them to other devices.

OnePlus 10 Pro

The OnePlus 10 Pro is perhaps the best value-priced below $1,000 (often ~$825). The internals and camera are almost unsurpassed by models nearly twice its price.

A Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor is exceptionally fast, and the phone has no bloatware to slow it down. Also, reverse wireless charging makes this model even more unique.

The OnePlus 10 Pro can legitimately be compared to some cameras when it comes to cameras. OnePlus partnered with Hasselblad to develop a 50MP ultra-wide camera that sees 150˚, 48MP wide camera, and 8MP telephoto with 3.3x optical zoom.

Even the front 32MP camera is better than what some phones have as their main lens. Just be sure to do your makeup, since the front lens will show detailed contours whenever you’re on video calls.

OnePlus Nord N200 5G

For affordable 5G connectivity, the OnePlus Nord N200 5G ushers users into the next cell network for less than $300 (~$250).

A Qualcomm Snapdragon processor keeps the phone running quickly despite halving half of the OnePlus 10 Pro’s RAM. The cameras won’t be winning any photography awards, but they’re perfectly suitable for selfies and sharing.

Considering you can get three of these phones for less than what the other models listed cost, the Nord N200 5G is an attractive option.
