AT&T is the second largest carrier in the US, behind Verizon. A lot of its growth dates back to the iPhone exclusivity it had until the iPhone 4. And many have just stuck with AT&T since then. AT&T has a lot of Android phones, actually they have more than every other US carrier does right now, which is rather surprising.

That makes choosing the best AT&T phone for you, a bit tougher. So we’re here to help you pick up the best phone for you. If you need help with their plans, we’ve listed their best plans here.

Best AT&T Phones

AT&T has phones ranging from just a couple of hundred dollars, to up over a grand. So there’s something for everyone on this list. This list is not ranked in order of which phones we think are the best. They are in a random order, and you really can’t go wrong with any of these.

It sports a 6.8-inch QHD+ 120Hz LTPO display, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. If you get the 256GB, 512GB or 1TB size, you’ll be bumped to 12GB of RAM. There’s also a 5000mAh capacity battery inside that will keep you going all day.

And it’ll get updates for four years, until 2026.

It sports a 6.2-inch outer display, along with a 7.6-inch internal display. It’s powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage as well. There’s also a 4400mAh capacity battery inside, which is the same as the Fold 3, but the battery life is actually a lot better than on its predecessor, thanks to that Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 5G

  • Price: $27.78/month, for 36 months
  • Released: August 2022
  • Where to buy: AT&T

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 5G is the most popular foldable in the US right now. This one is basically a regular phone that can fold in half. Who doesn’t want that? It sports a 6.7-inch inner display which is AMOLED and 120Hz. There is a small 1.9-inch outer display for notifications.

Internally, you’ll find the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There is a 256GB model available. And there is a small 3700mAh capacity battery inside. Though that is a 12% bump from the Flip 3, and paired with that Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, the battery life is actually pretty good here.

It’s a flashback to clamshell phones from the 2000s and that really appeals to a lot of people.

This last spot on our best phones for AT&T list, we have the iPhone 14. Now it is mostly the same as the iPhone 13, but there are some nice changes here. It does still sport the same 6.1-inch display, with the A15 Bionic processor. RAM has been bumped up to 6GB. And it does still come in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB of storage.

The cameras have been upgraded, and now sports what the 13 Pro models were using last year. Still a 12-megapixel main and a 12-megapixel ultrawide sensor. No telephoto on the iPhone 14. It’s still a pretty good phone, especially if you’re upgrading from a much older phone.
