The (other) best phones on the market

iPhone 13 may be stealing the headlines at the moment, but if an Apple a day’s not really your thing, there are plenty of great alternatives on the market.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G

Take a nostalgia trip back to the noughties with this modern twist on the classic flip phone. It’s got plenty of plusses, but the biggest is its portability.

The Flip3 can fold into the smallest pocket, tuck into your purse and squeeze into your skinny jeans – then it opens up into a full-screened 5G smartphone. The best of both worlds.

Google Pixel 5

Smart stuff, no fluff. The Pixel 5 offers the best experience of Google on a phone. Packed full of helpful things – including an ultrawide camera lens, wireless charging, Google Assistant and superfast 5G.

iPhone 13 alternatives

So, you might not fancy the iPhone 13, but there are still some great iPhones out there (which are probably a bit cheaper now too).
