Price

Price remains an important distinguishing factor, and it’s going to get more so as lower-cost 5G phones roll out later this year. In 2019, you had to pay anywhere from $700 to $1,200 for a flagship 5G phone. Even with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 costing $1,700 — a price that has more to do with its foldable design than its 5G support — the price range for 5G phones has begun to fall with more 5G models available for $500 or less.

Which is worth buying – AT&T 5G compatible phones?

iPhone 13 – popular AT&T 5G compatible phones

SPECIFICATIONS

Screen Size: 6.1 inchesProcessor: A15 BionicSize / weight: 5.8 x 2.8 x 0.3 inches / 6.4 ouncesBattery life (Hrs:Mins): 10:335G networks supported: AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon)

REASONS TO BUY

+Much improved battery+Extensive 5G support+Brighter display

REASONS TO AVOID

-Lacks 120Hz display-Slower charging than rivalsAdvertisement

Apple’s iPhone Pro models get the fancier features, but the standard iPhone 13 is a way to enjoy a great 5G phone for less. Improvements throughout the iPhone 13 lineup — a bigger battery, a smaller notch, and wider 5G support than before — are on display here, but for a low $799 price.

Unlike past models, you don’t have to sacrifice storage. The iPhoine 13 features 128GB in its base model, double what Apple used to provide. That an a vast improvement in battery life over the iPhone 12 makes this an ideal 5G phone.

iPhone 13 Pro Max – one of the best AT&T 5G compatible phones

SPECIFICATIONS

Screen Size: 6.7 inchesProcessor: A15 BionicSize / weight: 6.3 x 3.1 x 0.3 inches / 8.5 ouncesBattery life (Hrs:Mins): 12:165G networks supported: AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon

REASONS TO BUY

+Excellent battery life+Brighter display with fast refresh rate+Superior performance

REASONS TO AVOID

-Pretty bulk-Battery could charge faster

The iPhone 13 Pro Max is the best 5G phone available after replacing our previous pick, the iPhone 12 Pro Max. As good as that phone was, the iPhone 13 Pro Max improves upon it in every significant way, including ones that are important to 5G.

Like its predecessor, the iPhone 13 Pro Max offers extensive 5G support. But a bigger battery means the new Apple phone lasts longer on a charge — more than 12 hours in our testing, which is among the longest lasting phones currently on the market. The iPhone 13 Pro Max lasts that long even though Apple added a dynamically adjusting display, which has proven to be a power drain on other devices. Here, with the help of the efficient A15 Bionic chipset, the iPhone 13 Pro Max thrives.Advertisement

The new phone weighs a little bit more than Apple’s older model. But with all the improvements and the extended 5G support, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is a device 5G enthusiasts will love.

Samsung Galaxy S21 5G

With the octacore Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 platform at its core, the 6.2-inch Galaxy S21 is a superb flagship phone with excellent triple cameras – much improved over recent Samsung offerings – plus great battery life and a wonderful AMOLED display. It’s dust and water resistant and available with 128 or 256GB of storage. 

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra

With a five-camera setup that includes a 10x optical zoom, there’s enough here to justify the price premium over the standard Galaxy S21. It’s around half an inch bigger than the other model at 6.8-inches. And, like the other phone it runs on the very powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 platform. It is expensive, however.

The iPhone 12 series is Apple’s first range of 5G phones – these use Qualcomm modems inside. The pick of the entire range is the standard new 6.1-inch iPhone 12. This device makes the step up to the more expensive iPhone 12 Pro unnecessary.  There’s now a new 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini too. Both iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini are available in Black, White, Red, Green and Blue.

Google Pixel 6 – budget AT&T 5G compatible phones

SPECIFICATIONS

Screen Size: 6.4 inchesProcessor: Google TensorSize / weight: 6.2 x 2.9 x 0.4 inches / 7.3 ouncesBattery life (Hrs:Mins): 8:135G networks supported: AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon

REASONS TO BUY

+Unique design+Great price+Tensor chip powers excellent new experiences

REASONS TO AVOID

-5G modem can drain battery faster than anticipated-The Pixel 6 Pro has a faster refreshing display and telephoto lensAdvertisement

The Google Pixel 6 is an attractive 5G option because it offers a relatively low price — it starts at $599 — while still retaining premium features. Google’s new Tensor chip powers the phone, fueling a lot of machine learning-driven capabilities, and this is your first opportunity to grab Android 12 on a new device.

That said, there are some caveats, particularly related to 5G coverage. If you want a phone that works on the higher-speed networks of AT&T and Verizon, you’ll need to buy the Pixel 6 directly from those carriers — and it costs more than the $599 Google and T-Mobile are charging. There’s also an older modem in the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, and we suspect that’s hampering battery life.

Nevertheless, the Pixel 6 gives you the opportunity to connect with 5G in an affordable phone that offers cutting-edge features. That’s enough to make up for some of the 5G shortcomings.

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra

The Galaxy S20 Ultra is a flagship phone in every sense. It’s significantly more expensive than, say, the standard S20 and, while it has a lot in common with the S20+, it improves on the middle phone of the range quite significantly as well. 

It’s 0.2-inches bigger than the S20+, clocking in just shy of 7-inches at 6.9 and the 3,200 x 1,440 AMOLED display;ay absolutely sings. Like the others in the range it has super-fast charging and is based around the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 platform with X55 modem. 

But the real change is in the camera department. You get a quad-camera just like the S20+ but instead things are pushed to the limit. Instead of a 30x zoom, the S20 Ultra is capable of 100x, while there’s a huge 108 megapixel sensor to go alongside a 48 megapixel telephoto. While the 100x zoom isn’t hugely practical, you’ll love zooming into far-off objects. A

Again it’s available in two storage sizes – 128 and 512GB – but only two rather dark colours, cosmic black and cosmic grey.

Samsung Galaxy S20 5G

We didn’t actually think the Samsung Galaxy S20 was coming to the US, but were proven wrong by AT&T choosing to offer it. It’s available in cloud pink, cloud blue and cosmic grey in a 128GB version only. 

With a 6.2-inch OLED display it’s not a small phone, although is more pocketable than the others in the range. There’a s triple camera with 30x zoom (the main lens is a whopping 64 megapixels) and it can record 8K video should you really wish to. 

Samsung Galaxy S20+

The S20+ carries over many of the features from the standard S20 but you get a quad-camera instead, again with 64 megapixel telephoto lens and 12MP ultra-wide cameras. The screen is half an inch bigger though at 6.7-inches. 

Once again the phone is based around the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 platform with a Qualcomm X55 5G modem. 

It’s available in two storage sizes  – 128 and 512GB – and in three colours, cloud blue cosmic black and cosmic grey. 

Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus – AT&T 5G compatible phones under $1,000

SPECIFICATIONS

Screen Size: 6.7 inchesProcessor: Snapdragon 888Size / weight: 6.36 x 2.98 x 0.31 inches / 7.05 ouncesBattery life (Hrs:Mins): 9:41 (adaptive) / 9:53 (60Hz)5G networks supported: AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon

REASONS TO BUY

+Screen features 120Hz refresh rate+Impressive zoom feature+Supports all 5G network types+Beautiful design

REASONS TO AVOID

-So-so battery lifeAdvertisement

Released earlier this year, the Galaxy S21 Plus came along and surprised everyone. For $200 less than its predecessor, the S21 Plus checks a lot of the boxes. It’s a big, beautiful phone with a gorgeous 120Hz display and the best Qualcomm processor yet, the Snapdragon 888.

Starting at $999 for the 128GB model, the Galaxy S21 Plus is a force to be reckoned with, even if it lacks some of the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s big features. As a 5G phone, however, you have the latest Qualcomm X60 5G modem and you can access whatever 5G bands you need. Any of the three carriers will work, including Verizon’s mmWave network.

If you want a smaller phone, the regular Galaxy S21 is also a great pick. It’s basically the Galaxy S21 Plus in a more compact frame for $799. 

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G

SPECIFICATIONS

Screen Size: 6.5 inchesProcessor: Dimensity 720Size / weight: 6.46 x 3.00 x 0.36 inches / 7.23 ouncesBattery life (Hrs:Mins): 11:39 (adaptive), 12:22 (60hz)5G networks supported: AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon

REASONS TO BUY

+Very low price+Four years of security patches+Great battery life+90Hz refresh rate

REASONS TO AVOID

-Subpar HD+ displayAdvertisement

5G is available even below $300. One such device is the Galaxy A32 5G, a chunky phone that you can take to any carrier and get sub-6Ghz support. You can buy the Galaxy A32 through AT&T or T-Mobile, or bring an unlocked model to Verizon. And at $280, you might be tempted to do so.

If we had to lodge one major complaint against the Galaxy A32, we’d knock it for the subpar 720p LCD. At 6.5 inches, that’s a low pixel density and you can visibly see it if you look close enough. But the two main cameras work great for something at this price point, much better than the A32’s direct competitor, the OnePlus Nord N200 5G.
