Despite there being so many cell phones to choose from, a small handful of flagship phones rise to the top as clear favorites. For iOS fans, there’s the obvious Apple iPhone 15, and for Android users, there’s the Samsung Galaxy S23. Earlier popular Apple models also include the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 which will likely continue to have a following as long as they’re available—ditto for the Samsung Galaxy S22 and previous generations.
Among the best Android phones, flip phones and foldable phones are also gaining in popularity, with the Galaxy Z Flip5 and Flip4 and the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Fold4 among the most coveted smartphones in this category. Of course, we cannot forget the Google Pixel 8 Pro, the Pixel 8 base model, and its predecessors.
