The Galaxy S22 Ultra is the best phone at T-Mobile

T-Mobile has an impressive lineup of phones at various price points, ranging from the top of the line down to affordable entry-level devices that you might not even need to finance monthly. Of course, Samsung makes some of the best T-Mobile phones you can get with plenty of power for any task and innovative new features like folding displays. Samsung also nails the refreshes, with the Galaxy S22 Ultra acting as a replacement for the Note series that many people came to love. There are also some other great options available if you're looking to make the most of your T-Mobile plan.

Best overall

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 256GB

Staff Pick

The Galaxy S22 Ultra steps in for the Galaxy Note series with a huge display, a large battery, powerful CPU, and of course, an S-pen that stores inside the phone.

Affordable alternative

Google Pixel 6 - Android smart phone

The Pixel 6 is still one of the best Android phones you can get with solid battery life, great camera performance, and a fast CPU. The OLED screen is 6.4 inches with a 90Hz refresh rate so Android's animations look smooth and crisp. Google also keeps the Pixel phones up to date with the latest version of Android so you can be first in line for all of the new features.

Best foldable

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 256GB

The Z Fold 3 from Samsung is a cool phone with a 6.2-inch outer screen and a folding 7.6-inch inner display. Both displays are silky smooth 120Hz AMOLED displays with great colors and blacks. This phone also supports 5G, including mmWave, to make the most of the T-Mobile network. Samsung has also managed to make this phone water-resistant with an IPX8 rating, so you don't need to worry about your phone if it starts to rain.

OxygenOS

OnePlus 9 Pro 256GB

The OnePlus 9 Pro may not be the incredible deal some of its predecessors were, but it's still a mighty flagship at a fairly reasonable price. You get a huge 120Hz display with 65W fast charging, 50W wireless charging, a 5G-capable Snapdragon 888 processor, and water resistance — not to mention the ultra-clean OxygenOS software, complete with Android 11 running out of the box.

Compact folder

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 128GB

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 takes the folding phone idea in a different direction making it one of the most compact, pocket-friendly Android phones ever. This model has a small but useful 1.9-inch display on the outside, with the internal display reaching 6.7 inches. It also comes with IPX8 water resistance to give you a bit more peace of mind in the rain. If you're looking for a great compact device, this is a beautiful choice.

Extra cheap

Motorola One 5G Ace 128GB

The Motorola One 5G Ace is all about value. With a sizable 5,000mAh battery, it boasts up to two days of battery life with one charge. It offers modern appointments like a nearly bezel-less display, triple cameras, and a 20:9 aspect ratio. You get fairly modern software, and with Android 10, you can always expand the 128GB of internal storage with a microSD card.

You have plenty of options at T-Mobile

T-Mobile's network works with the majority of unlocked phones including those that support 5G. For the best coverage, you'll want a phone that supports 5G bands n71 and n41 at a minimum. Luckily, most of the best Android phones do, including those listed here. One thing to keep in mind about buying a phone directly from T-Mobile is that its payment plans typically last 24 months so if you want to upgrade early, you're on the hook for the remaining balance.

Another thing to look out for is new line discounts. If you're adding a line, T-Mobile will offer discounts on some phones such as the Pixel 6 and even the cheap Motorola One 5G Ace with the latter becoming free for a new line. The Pixel 6 with a new line comes down to just $4.12 per month which is a great deal on this phone. With support for all of T-Mobile's 5G bands and even Wi-Fi 6E, the Pixel 6 is sure to be a phone that lasts for years.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra is proving to be everything Galaxy Note fans were missing with a large screen, solid battery life, and an included S-pen that's stored inside the phone. It's a beast with 12GB of RAM, a 6.8-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 108MP main camera. This phone also supports all of T-Mobile's 5G bands including mmWave. If you're looking for a phone that does just about everything, the S22 Ultra is a great place to start.

Review: The Teracube 2e is a more sustainable phone that you can afford

It just got easier to be green. If you know me or read my work here at AC, you know that I feel strongly about a few things when it comes to smartphones and consumer tech, and those things are not necessarily what some of my colleagues or others in the tech-sphere care about. You can have your 10x optical zoom cameras, folding phones, and 50W wireless charging devices all day, but I'm more interested in affordable to mid-range devices that last longer than you'd expect and which are at least trying to do environmental and social good. Sounds great, but it seems that it's harder to find this combination of features in a phone than the ultra-premium specced-out devices we typically talk about here on this website. That's why I was excited when I had the chance to write this Teracube 2e review. Teracube is a relatively new smartphone OEM based out of Redmond, WA, and founder Sharad Mittal's stated goal is to change the "disposable nature of the consumer ele

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

Your university's IT admin will need to make an application for access. What you need to know Adobe is temporarily making Creative Cloud free for teachers and students. The offer is aimed at enabling them to continue being productive as they work and study from home. Students cannot individually avail the promo, however, as the application for access needs to be made by a university's IT admin. As universities around the world shut their campuses and organizations ask their employees to work from home, many tech companies are making their products available to educational institutes free for use. Google and Microsoft have both made their large-scale communication and videoconferencing tools free for everyone, and now Adobe is temporarily giving free Creative Cloud access to students and teachers. The subscription, which usually costs $79.49 per month, will give affected students and teachers access to the entire range of Adobe's applications, such as Photoshop
