As the fifth generation of mobile networks begins to spread, you may be thinking of acquiring a new phone that can take advantage of it. The jump from 4G to 5G offers many advantages, such as significant potential speed increases. But before buying a new device, you must verify the coverage in your area, since the launch of 5G takes a while to reach beyond the main cities. In another guide we have made a list of the 5G phones announced so far, but it must be said that not all of them are available in the US, and of those that are, only a few are really worth it. In short: the following are the best 5G phones you can buy today.
Samsung Note 10 Plus 5G
With a huge 6.8-inch screen integrated into an elegant curved body, the Samsung Note 10 Plus is our favorite Android phone right now and one of the best phones you can buy. It may not be very original, but Samsung has included all the features you could want in an elegant design that is a pleasure to use. The huge screen is alive and well, and has a Snapdragon 855 inside, 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB or 512 GB of storage with space to expand up to 1 TB with a MicroSD card. The camera takes excellent photos in a wide range of settings and is an expert in video capture. The 4,300 mAh battery is enough to withstand a busy day and has support for wireless charging and very fast cable charging. Not to mention that the S Pen also works as a remote control. Samsung also offers a series of practical software features to increase the productivity potential of the Note 10 Plus. The impressive iridescent chrome of the Aura Glow finish is our favorite in the color gamut and you can see our comparison of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus to see what this device is capable of.

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G
The first Samsung 5G phone to reach the market was the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and is very similar to the Note 10 Plus 5G. It has a beautiful 6.7-inch screen, a slightly more rounded design and a horizontal camera module, instead of vertical, on the back. Internally, it has the same Snapdragon 855, but with 8 GB of RAM, enough for most. The main camera is equally versatile, but the S10 5G also offers a dual-lens front camera, while the Note 10 Plus 5G has a single lens self-timer. Other reasons to opt for the S10 5G are the headphone port and the 4,500 mAh battery. Both phones have an initial price of $ 1,300 dollars, so you will have to weigh what you value when choosing. If you prefer a slightly larger screen, expandable storage and the S Pen, then opt for the Note 10 Plus 5G, but if you want a headphone port and a long-lasting battery, the S10 5G takes the advantage.

OnePlus 7 Pro 5G
Available for $ 840 dollars, the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G may be the most balanced among the 5G phones currently on the market. It has a large and beautiful 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a smooth refresh rate of 90Hz, while the Snapdragon 855 provides the muscle, backed by 6 GB of RAM in the 128 GB and 8 GB or 12 GB storage version RAM in the 256 GB version. It has a very capable triple lens camera and an emerging self camera that allows the entire front of the phone to be seen practically. The battery life is a bit disappointing, with a capacity of 4,000 mAh, but it charges quickly. It lacks water resistance and wireless charging, but it costs several hundred dollars less than Samsung's flagships. In the United States you should use Sprint to use the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G.
$ 669 ONEPLUS
Here is another option that will not ruin you, although you will not approach the benefits of the first three phones on this list. The Moto Z4 is a mid-range phone with Snapdragon 675, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. It has a 6.4-inch OLED screen, but it is not as sharp, fluid or impressive as our previous recommendation. It has a single lens camera of 48 megapixels, which allows Motorola to combine images for better quality through the grouping of pixels, producing a 12 megapixel image at the end. The 3,600 mAh battery will help you spend the day and the terminal is relatively cheap with its $ 500 price, but you should also buy the 5G Moto Mod, which costs $ 350 dollars and is exclusive to Verizon. The mod not only offers 5G connectivity to the Moto Z4, but also contains an additional 2,000 mAh battery.

LG V50 ThinQ 5G
This equipment has a beautiful and sharp 6.4-inch OLED display, Snapdragon 855 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and 4,000mAh battery. The triple lens camera is not the best, but it is quite versatile and has a good double lens front camera. LG has also found space for a headphone port, wireless charging and water resistance in the specification sheet. If you buy the LG V50 ThinQ, 5G support is only available in Verizon or Sprint, but they are not interoperable, so if you buy in Verizon run on the Verizon 5G network, but not in Sprint and vice versa. You should consider this before paying around $ 1,000 dollars for this phone.
