If you are searching for a new phone, and you don’t like using an iPhone, you have a variety of phones to choose from. But the large selection of Android phones can be a little confusing. Which brand or model can offer you as a digital nomad the best specs? 

These top 5 Android phones are solid, that can offer you the best you can buy now. Or even a little less, if you’re looking for a smaller phone, we have you covered as well.

Best new Android phones to choose from right now:

1) Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G

As the first pick, we have a Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. This is arguably the best Android phone you can buy right now. Suppose you don’t mind the more significant dimensions of the phone, of course. You are getting a 6.8 inch OLED screen with excellent brightness, so even in the direct sun, you have no issues with looking at the phone. The next big bonus is a Samsung galaxy s pen, which you can use with this particular Samsung. It does not have a place in its body as in the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Still, even the possibility of using it can be a benefit for a lot of people.

The other specs of the phone are also the best you can buy right now. Photos the camera can take are also excellent, and the big battery of the phone lets you take a lot of them. You have a selection of three cameras, which are telephoto, ultrawide and wide. All three are taking high-quality photos, and especially zooming in on this phone is impressive.

2) Sony Xperia 1 iii 

Sony Xperia 1 MK III is the latest and greatest Sony android phone. It is the flagship phone which still has a 3,5 mm jack, which tells you a lot. This phone is perfect for real digital nomads, who like to use their phone to its maximum. You have a 6.5 inch OLED screen with 4k resolution and 120 Hz, which is the only flagship phone with a 4k screen you can buy right now. Also, the resolution of the screen is 21:9, which is meant for watching movies. But it brings along one more positive thing than just movies. Thanks to this resolution, it is slim and fits perfectly into your hand. Also, it helps with showing more content on the screen while scrolling. 

The other specs are also great. The latest Qualcomm snapdragon 888, waterproof body, and cameras offer you the same pro photography as you have on the Sony Alpha cameras. It also provides you to record fantastic videos using the same technology as the Sony Alpha cameras.

3) OnePlus 9 Pro

OnePlus 9 Pro is a fast, reasonably priced, and quite a good-looking android phone. The phone price is the biggest argument for buying the phone, because it is lower than the two phones mentioned above, but offers you nearly the same experience as Sony and Samsung. The word nearly can be said about the cameras mostly, as the quality is not as good as Sony or Samsung. But if you do not worry about taking photos as much, this phone can be perfect. 

You will get a Qualcomm snapdragon 888, unique looking, fast refreshing screen with 6.7 inches. The Android inside is also changed to Oxygen OS, one of the quickest Android skins out there. Also, it offers you a lot of customization in the user interface if you are into that. Otherwise, you are getting a solid phone for the price. 

4) Google Pixel 5

Google Pixel has been trying to be the best phone, but the latest Pixel 5 is more of a compact phone than the best hardware you can get. The clean Android, which runs on Google phones, is much better than many alternative skins that other manufacturers apply. It is just a smooth phone which takes fantastic photos. Also, the video quality is a lot better this year in Pixel phones. 

If you like things that work all the time you want them to, the Google Pixel 5 is a no-brainer to buy. Even if the lower specs of the phone might discourage you, the experience while using the phone is the same as if you would have the highest specs you could, thanks to the optimization Google offers. 

5) Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

The latest choice in this list is a nearly a year old android phone, but it still is solid enough to make It on the list. If you are interested in the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, but you would like to have a square design, along with the S Pen stylus build in so you can scribble quick notes on your phone, you have no other choice. The latest phone feature a stylus directly in the body. Otherwise, the phone is nearly the same as the mentioned Samsung S21 Ultra. So if you have to decide, it is up to design and some extra features spread between these two phones.
