The best iPhone for every type of person and budget

For $699, the iPhone 11 is the best choice for most buyers because it has nearly all the same specs as the high-end iPhone 11 Pro models, but it costs $300 to $400 less. The iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are also fantastic phones, but they're best for people who want the absolute best new tech and the three cameras. The iPhone XR is still a great buy — especially at its new $599 price. The iPhone XS and XS Max continue to be good options if you can get a deal on them. The company is also rumored...

Samsung's new flagship smartphones are incredibly expensive and set a worrying precedent that 5G is only for those who can afford it

Almost all top-spec Android smartphones of 2020 will come with 5G connectivity because the premium Qualcomm chip of 2020 supports 5G connectivity by default.  Samsung's latest Galaxy S20 phones with 5G start at $1,000, and there's no cheaper version of the Galaxy S20 like there was with the Galaxy S10.  The high price of Samsung's Galaxy S20 phones set a worrying precedent that the cost of entry for 5G is high, and it'll only be available to those who can afford it.  5G wireless plans are also...
