Editor Phone Reviews

Picking a new phone can be confusing and overwhelming and, if you're on a standard wireless plan, you're going to be doing it every two years or so. The answer to the question "What phone should I buy" depends on your carrier, the operating system you prefer, and the app and content ecosystem you're most tied into. Rather than ask you a bunch of crazy questions, we organize our reviews to address the big ones and break down the details that will matter. Don't understand why dual-core phones might be better quad-cores, what LTE is, or why Android phones all have such different interfaces? Don't worry about it; we get paid for this stuff. We'll explain it.

For more tips make sure to check out our cell phone buying guide and our selections for the best cell phones.
