Top 10 best 5G phones to buy in 2020: Read and Pick best one

Due to the high speed and improved networking options, 5G phones are famous worldwide. An excellent 5G phone helps you to send or receive data quickly because of faster upload and download speed. This also helps you to do fast internet surfing as well. The high speed means you can download high-quality videos with ease without any lagging problems. There are several companies in Pakistan which offer 5G phones. However, the common brands are Samsung, Apple, Nokia, QMobile, Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, etc. You can perform multiple activities with a 5G phone without any hassles.

5G phones are still in their early stages in the United States but all major providers have connections to low, mid-, and high-band networks. It is not the only reason to find our top picks, but 5 G coverage is one reason to buy a phone and be confident that it will last two or three years.

All providers offer one, two, or three 5G choices, but the countrywide speed and quality of the networks are still limited. The top selection in our list includes all three network choices, but 5G phones are one of the best options.

Hopefully, we will see new Google, Apple Samsung, Huawei, and OnePlus 5G phones in 2020. By 2020, Apple does not embrace 5G, giving Android phones a leg up on 5G’s benefits. Superb cameras are also a prime feature in today’s flagship 5G phones, and any of the top 10 will help you capture beautifully.

It is simple to find one of the best 5G phones these days. Smartphones are so fantastic, and you don’t even need to replace them on an annual basis, and upgrade plans from carriers and phone makers make it a very painless. A monthly lease or payment option is a reasonable cost, with mobile phones serving as essential resources for operating a business.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 series all are present in the market with 5G phones versions, but the Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus versions are the best options because they combine a lot of top features with a (relatively) low-priced tag.

Like with most Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy S20 5G phones have excellent AMOLED displays with up to 120Hz refresh rate. They also have top-of-the-line chipsets and cameras with a lot of app tricks to help you make the best photos possible.

Yes, of course, some of the mobile device techniques that sit on top of their range (which is just below in this list) are missing, but we believe the cheap cost helps to make the Samsung Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus more affordable and higher value for money.

One of the best 5G phones you can buy is the OnePlus 8 Pro, and it’s around $300 less expensive than the Galaxy S20 Plus. But the OnePlus 8 Pro is more constrained for 5G purposes than some of its competing smartphones. The handset is unlocked only, so you cannot purchase it through a particular phone provider.

More importantly, The OnePlus 8 operates only on 5G networks focused on sub-6Hz. That ensures it can’t take advantage of the higher 5G enabled mmWave speeds. Verizon customers may need to search for any other brand’s smartphone because the 5G network of that provider depends heavily on mmWave.

That is indeed less of a worry for T-Mobile users, which has set up its national sub-6Ghz 5 G network. (AT&T users complained that the OnePlus 8 Pro doesn’t support AT&T’s 5G bands, even though that carrier mostly requires lower-band 5G as well.) If the OnePlus 8 Pro is well-suited with the network, users get a 5G phone with a colourful and smoother 120Hz display screen, powerful quad cameras and a remarkably quick charging speed even if you’re wirelessly juicing your smartphone.

If you like a lot of tricks, specs, and cutting-edge design and features, Galaxy S20 Ultra is the right choice among other 5G phones. You have to ignore the price because this phone is too much expensive.

Excellent performance too, but the device gets too warm under high load.

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Succeeds in new Durability Test

7. OnePlus 8 5G $629.00

OnePlus 5G phones have long been considered as best participant of the Android world, and although the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are less expensive than some of their direct rivals, the difference isn’t as dramatic as it used to be.

Although OnePlus 8 is not the perfect OnePlus smartphone – in this list, and you can find that further, but it is still a strong enough candidate to claim a place. OnePlus 8 is 5G phone is more inexpensive with a top-end processor, 90Hz refresh rate, 8 to 12GB of RAM and a massive 4,300mAh battery, and of course 5G.

It is not a top-end handset – the display is only 1080 x 2400, and the triple-lens sensor is not the perfect match, wireless charging is also not available. But these are minor compromises for the quality of something you get.

9. Sony Xperia 1 II $1,192.26

Image: Amazon

Sony Xperia 1 II 5G phone is designed to make your phone function as a high-quality Sony Alpha camera. For one exciting thing, it’s come a long time: since its first in 2008, Sony has made hundreds of Xperia phones, and until now, neither of them had such a strong or convincing brand. The Sony Xperia 1 II, however, is not a 5G phone in the U.S., but it’s everywhere, and it’s a nice one.

The OLED display measures 3840 x 1644 pixels. (Sony calls this 4K.) It has a standard 60Hz refresh rate, a disappointment on a phone of this class. There’s a “Motion Blur Reduction” option that’s supposed to make it feel more like a 90Hz display, but it doesn’t hold up to real high refresh rate options like the Samsung Galaxy S20 or Pixel 4.

The Sony Xperia 1 II also features a high-end 865 Snapdragon processor, a right amount of RAM and storage, a quad-lens camera sensor, and stable battery life.

Apart from the absence of 5G connectivity support in the U.S., its high price is the main issue. This 5G smartphone completes the costliest Samsung and Apple phones, and Sony is probably not a brand that can get away with that, even if the device is so decent.
