The fifth largest carrier in the United States, US Cellular, has a fairly robust selection of devices. With phones at the top of the line and products at the entry level, there’s plenty in between, too.
If you’re on the hunt for a new smartphone from US Cellular, and are considering an Android, we’re here to help. What you’ll find below is a collection of the best phones at US Cellular, as we see it.
The following models have been assigned “categories” which should help to identify the target user base. All of them, though, are worth your time and interest.
Google Pixel 4
Maybe one of the most controversial “best” phones we’ve seen in some time, the Pixel 4 is the newest from Google. And while it’s not the most powerful and robust device on the market, it does have its share of cool features.
The display is really awesome, too, and we’re big fans of the design change. If you can swing it, buy the larger storage option because 64GB is a little light in 2020. Go for the Pixel 4 XL and get a bigger display and higher capacity battery.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10
You can’t have a list of top phone without including the latest and greatest. In this case, it’s the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. Outfitted with a large screen, lots of memory, and an incredible camera experience, it’s a no-compromise device.
We love the updated S Pen experience, in-display fingerprint scanner, and wireless charging. The phone is sexy, sophisticated looking, and boasts hardware that rivals all comers. The Samsung DeX Mode turns your phone into a desktop-like experience, taking advantage of all of that prowess.
Samsung Galaxy A50
Knowing that this list already has a Samsung phone on it, we have to add the Galaxy A50. Why? Because it’s a fraction of what the Galaxy S models cost, but still give users all the important features.
The Galaxy A series in itself is very interesting to watch, however this is the one we like most. Present are a generous 6.4-inch display and a multi-camera (25 MP/8 MP/5MP) array on the rear, and a battery that rivals most phones. You know, the stuff we love.
Under the hood are an octa-core processor with 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, and a microSD expansion card slot for up to 512GB space. Rounding things out are a headphone jack, fingerprint reader, and USB Type C charging.
Google Pixel 3a
There are plenty of other devices with much more hardware to choose from, even at Verizon Prepaid. And yes, there are phones that cost less and still suffice for the masses. But there’s nothing else at the prepaid carrier that walks the line between value and performance.
The stock Android experience stays as current as anything you’ll find and it only get better with each, timely update. Throw in a camera that wows anyone and everyone, a solid battery, and a $400 price tag and you can understand why we love it.
Is it worth spending the extra money to get the full Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL experience? Sure, but it’s not necessary. This one has all the stuff that’s important with compromises done in just the right spots. You’d have a tough time convincing us that you truly need more from a phone as 2020 gets going.
Motorola Moto G7 Power
We say it all the time — most people don’t need, or care about high-end hardware. That’s why Motorola’s G series of phones do so well. They’re priced affordably and have all the stuff that’s important.
We love that Motorola opts to leave the Android experience largely untouched. Google’s done a great job of creating a cohesive interface so it’s nice when phone makers don’t stand in the way or try to add onto it.
The handset houses a large, 6.2-inch display and offers respectable performance and a lot of storage. Its real selling point, though, is the 5000mAh battery which puts it far above others.
