1 Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus

Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus is an amazing phone for all Android enthusiasts. Samsung phones are known for their sleek displays and the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus is no exception. The phone also has a great camera and a good battery. The powerful processor makes the phone fast and the QHD AMOLED screen makes the phone comfortable to scroll with. Unfortunately, the price is one of its minuses. If you buy a Samsung Galaxy S20, you will be about 1,150 Euro poorer. The truth is also that its predecessor, the S10, was a really good phone and the step up to an S20 Plus is not that huge.

2 iPhone 12 Pro

Apple finally released their first mobile phone with support for 5G and by all accounts they have succeeded well with the new phone. According to Apple, the iPhone 12 supports the most 5G bands of all smartphones. This means that you can use 5G in many places, when the 5G network is ready. iPhone 12 has a good battery life but 5G takes its fair share of the battery. When you turn off 5G, you can get up to 1.5 hours extra on the battery. The A14 processor speeds up the phone and the new night features of the camera make it easier to take pictures in the dark.

3 OnePlus 8 Pro

With the OnePlus 8 Pro you get quite a lot of bang for the buck. It is a really good Android phone, overall, and it is significantly cheaper than the Galaxy S20 Plus. The phone has a nice and clear screen and a fantastic camera. In addition, the phone charges very quickly, both via cord and via wireless charging. When it comes to 5G compatibility, the phone is a bit behind its competitors, this is because it only works on sub-6Hz-based 5G networks. This means that the phone can not take advantage of the really fast frequencies of 5G.

Screen size: 6.78 inches

Processor: Snapdragon 865

Battery life: 11.05 hours

Price: approx. 950 €

4 Motorola Edge Plus

The Edge phones were launched by Motorola in 2020 and they quickly became known as strong candidates if you are looking for a 5G phone. The screen has a nice arc line around the phone, hence the name Edge. With a large battery and 108 MP in the main camera, you get a phone that few are dissatisfied with. The phone has a 6.7” FHD + Endless Edge OLED screen and a GRAMMY-awarded sound technology.

Screen size: 6.7 inches

Processor: Snapdragon 865

Battery life: 9.48 hours

Price: approx. 1950 €


5G google pixel phone

5 Google Pixel 5

Many phones that support 5G also tend to be quite expensive. With Google Pixel 5, you get a phone that is good overall, with a fantastic camera, for a reasonable price. In order to deliver that price, the manufacturers needed to give up something, namely the processor. Instead of the newer and more powerful chips, Google Pixel 5 uses a Snapdragon 765G chip. On the other hand, the phone delivers a camera that uses Google's smart photo processing, which results in really nice pictures. A very affordable 5G phone, all in all.

Screen size: 6 inches

Processor: Snapdragon 765G

Battery life: 9:29 hours

Price: approx. 600 €

6 Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is not a phone for those that are price sensitive. When the prices for 5G phones slowly fall, this model goes in a totally opposite direction. In short, it is super expensive. The phone is also quite heavy. But it comes packed with functionality and is a clear upgrade from the first Fold phone. Of course, the phone uses the latest processor technology. When you unfold the phone, you get a 7.6-inch screen, which is good if you want to be able to stream movies in 5G speeds or want to be able to multi-task with 3 apps at the same time. And maybe best of all with this phone, it's super cool!

Screen size: 7.6 inches

Processor: Snapdragon 865 Plus

Battery life: 10:10 hours

Price: approx. 2,200 €!

7 LG Velvet

Thanks to the fact that 5G phones slowly but steadily decrease in price, you can get a good mobile without having to sell a kidney and a liver. The LG Velvet is an example of a phone that is 5G compatible but does not cost everything you own at the same time. This may not be the most powerful phone on the market. The camera is okay but works a little worse when it starts to get dark. But what it lacks in force, it takes back in style. It is a really good looking phone with good battery life. A perfect handset for you who do not want to pay for a fortune for a 5G compatible phone.

Screen size: 6.8 inches

Processor: Snapdragon 765G

Battery life: 10.29

Price: approx. 600 €


These were some of the best 5G phones available in the market today. But of course there are a plethora of other models that can also handle 5G. For example, Oppo Find X2 pro, Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Sony Xperia 1 II and Xiaomi Mi 10. Many of the mobile phones that are compatible with 5G are still quite expensive, but we see a declining pricing, the more common the technology becomes. My tip for those of you who are hungry for a 5G phone is to wait a while longer to make your purchase. As 5G is rolled out over larger areas, it will become clearer which phones handle which speeds exactly where you live. This way, you can make a good choice when buying a 5G phone.
