Galaxy S

Samsung is probably the best-known manufacturer of Android devices on the planet — you've likely known some less-tech-savvy people who refer to Android phones on the whole as "Galaxies." That's both because its devices are generally competent and well marketed, and also because the South Korean giant makes roughly a billion models at every conceivable price point. So, if you're looking to buy, how do you choose? Here, we break down your options — from super-premium to the bare necessities.


Premium: $700 and up

It probably won't come as a surprise that, when it comes to getting the best phones Samsung offers, regardless of price, the flagship S21 line is your best bet. This is especially true considering there's been no Note phone this year. But there are some differences between the three S21 models beyond size.

Galaxy S21 Ultra


If you're after peak Samsung in 2021, the Galaxy S21 Ultra should be your go-to. It's a huge son of a gun, with a 1440p, 120Hz, 6.8-inch screen, and it's fast, packing the latest Snapdragon 888 processor and a minimum of 12 gigabytes of RAM. In our review, we found that its cameras were fantastic, too. David had especially high praise for its 10x telephoto lens, calling it "an absolute gem."


It's expensive, though, with an MSRP starting at $1,200 and going all the way up to $1,380 for the highest trim. But if you want what' unequivocally the best Samsung has to offer, this is it.
