<pre><pre>Best Samsung phones: find the right Galaxy for you

Samsung is the biggest name in Android phones, and with good reason, such as the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are among the best handsets you can buy.

But Samsung does not only make head-catching flagships – it has a wide range of smartphones that can be the perfect fit, whatever your needs and budget.

Updating: We have added the high-end Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to our best Samsung phone list. Read on to know where it is located.

With that in mind here is our guide to the best Samsung phones currently available. It includes new and old (er) for a range of price points, along with different screen sizes, specifications and functions.

1. Samsung Galaxy Note 9

Large screen, larger battery

Date of publication: August 2018 | Weight: 205g | Dimensions: 162 x 76.4 x 9 mm OS: Android 8.1 | RAM: 6 / 8GB | storage: 128/512 GB (maximum 1TB with card) Battery: 4.000mAh | Back camera: Dual 12MP | Front camera: 8MP

Improved battery life

Beautiful display

Very expensive

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is not only one of the best Samsung phones you can buy today, it's one of the best phones, period. It is an expensive device, certainly, but with more than twice the start-up of the iPhone X at about the same starting price. Basically, it's a better deal than Apple's offer.

The most important selling point this time is the unique S-Pen, which no longer needs to be charged. Not only can you do normal stylus-like things with the new S-Pen, you can also use it to take selfies at a distance, giving you photos that you would not otherwise be able to get.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is also one of the best camera phones in the Samsung setup, with a camera that easily outperforms the competition. That comes on top of the improved cooling and battery life, making this jumbo device last most of the day without burning a hole in your pocket – even if the price does.

2. Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus

The best Samsung phone you can buy

Date of publication: March 2018 | Weight: 189 g Dimensions: 158.1 x 73.8 x 8.5 mm OS: Android 8 | Screen size: 6.2 inches Resolution: 1440 x 2960 | CPU: Snapdragon 845 / Exynos 9810 | RAM: 6 GB storage: 64 GB / 128 GB | Battery: 3.500mAh | Back camera: Dual 12MP | Front camera: 8MP

Great double aperture camera

Impressive screen

Pricey

Not so different from S8 Plus

The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is the best phone from Samsung, and also the top rated handset in our total best phone list at the time of writing.

It is big, in fact the 6.2-inch screen would make it very big, were it not that the edge and curved edges are almost completely absent, which makes it really manageable in the hand. The screen is also one of the best – it is sharp and offers great colors.

The Galaxy S9 Plus is also distinguished by its dual 12MP cameras, one of which is a dual-aperture-one, meaning it can switch between f / 1.5 for dark scenes and f / 2.4 for all else .

Other highlights include impressive stereo speakers and a large 3.500mAh battery. There is of course also flagship power and all the bells and whistles that go with it, such as a stylish construction of metal and glass, water resistance, wireless charging and various biometric security options, including a fingerprint scanner, an iris scanner and a face scanner.
