Looking back just three years ago, and the smartphone landscape was completely different than what it looks like now. We don’t have nearly as many companies offering flagship devices, with many phone makers opting to focus on the budget and mid-range markets.
But the wonderful thing about that is with time, some of the best smartphones don’t need the latest and greatest processing power just to provide a wonderful experience. In 2021, there are the usual suspects like OnePlus, Samsung, and Apple, but Motorola continues to release incredibly solid budget-friendly phones, while we’ve even been seeing great options from the likes of TCL and others.
The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro present a “return to form” for Google, as these devices look to reclaim the title of the best smartphone for everyone. With an incredibly low price and even more incredible software improvements, Google’s 2021 flagships are quite impressive
With the Galaxy Z Flip 3, Samsung presented a foldable form-factor for everyone who doesn’t want a folding tablet. From the redesigned cover screen to improved durability, this phone is simply incredible in every aspect, except for battery life.
If you want a reliable smartphone that offers amazing battery life without breaking the bank, the 2021 Moto G Power is the way to go. This phone features a triple camera setup headlined by a 48MP lens while being rated for up to three days of battery life.
