One of my favourites right now is the Samsung A52s 5G, which boasts a gorgeous AMOLED screen, smooth performance and impressively water resistance. It’s tough competition for the other best smartphones in this round-up, including the Poco F3 and Moto G200 – excellent choices for gamers, with their powerful specs.

One of the freshest options here is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro, which is a winner in almost every area. The camera occasionally falters, such as the lack of 4K video recording, but it’s excellent for streaming media and battery life is top. Similarly great is the Realme 9 Pro Plus.

Else, if your budget is too tight for those, check out the Infinix Zero 5G, Poco M4 Pro and OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G. Full unboxing and review shenanigans live now for all of these phones!
