Looking for the best Android smartphone this year? Here's a quick view at some of the best smartphones running on Google's proprietary mobile OS.

This list includes some of the best brands to rival the best non-Android smartphones in the market, particularly the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The list comes from CNet.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus ($1,100)

The Korean tech giant's latest and greatest single-display offering is, of course, at the top of this list for obvious reasons: it has a stunning 6.8-inch display, long battery life, and the best camera Samsung has to offer on a smartphone at the moment.

Samsung Galaxy S10E ($750)

This handset might be Samsung's cheapest flagship as of now, but it should not be ignored. It's smaller than its more expensive siblings, but it shares the most important components with them: a Snapdragon 855 chipset, and the S10 series' core camera features. It's not as fancy, but it won't be as costly either.

OnePlus 7 Pro ($623)

OnePlus is known for its top-performing flagship killers that don't break the bank. The OnePlus 7 Pro is another one of those devices that can stand toe-to-toe against other devices that are almost $100 more expensive. It's not rated for water resistance, but it does have a pop-up selfie camera, an in-display fingerprint reader, and great rear camera performance.

Google Pixel 3A ($399)

The Pixel 3A takes the Pixel 3's camera capabilities and makes it more affordable for the masses. Those who can't afford to spend a lot of money for the excellent Pixel 4 can choose to buy this model instead, and not feel bad about it. Aside from its fantastic camera abilities, it also has one beloved feature most flagships do not have: a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Motorola Moto G7 ($200)

The Moto G7 shouldn't be made to compete with the other smartphones in this list. It also shouldn't be made to compete with the iPhone 11 lineup. It doesn't promise to perform the same way as those other devices do, but it does promise to do something: give budget-conscious buyers a slick-looking, great-performing, turbo charging, long-lasting smartphone that's cheaper than the others.
