Apple surprised its world by making its line of iconic smartphones compatible with the latest generation of mobile technologies a year ahead of what the Californian giant had planned until now. With the integration of Qualcomm modems, the latest iPhone 12 models connect via 5G with better cell reception on 4G LTE networks as well.

Unlike previous iPhones, the iPhone 12 Pro Max doesn’t just offer a bigger screen and more battery capacity compared to the 12 Pro. It also makes improvements in dual rear cameras, so if you want the absolute best from Apple, you have to go for the bigger, more expensive iPhone.

The Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G launched with the best specs available. Unlike last year’s Note 10 Plus, this is a recommended upgrade for fans of the Korean manufacturer’s stylus smartphones. Nothing is missing in this new Note, with the advanced S Pen Air actions, the cool matte glass rear panel, the very capable triple rear cameras, and much more.

OnePlus launched two phones available in early 2021 with very similar internal specs. The OnePlus 9 Pro supports 5G on all three available networks, while the OnePlus 9 is only limited to the low-band spectrum of the new generation of mobile technologies, a factor to consider when making your choice.

Both of these OnePlus devices come in cool color options and at lower prices than Samsung. OnePlus has reached parity with Samsung, and surpassed it with its charging technology, so if you want a flagship phone without the duplicate apps and ads, you should consider a OnePlus phone.

Like Samsung, OnePlus also has fantastic RF reception, so you’ll see great support from your carriers. With fast performance, a high and adaptive refresh rate, and more, the OnePlus 9 Pro is ideal for work and play.

Samsung released three models of the S21 in early 2021 with the integration of 5G across the range. Samsung has reduced the price (compared to its 2020 version) of each phone by around 200 euros, which makes the S21 phones quite convincing.

The cameras have been improved while the phone comes with the latest and greatest specs and features found on any smartphone. Samsung has proven to provide the highest level of cellular reception and with 5G this performance is taken to the next level.
