The budget champ

Moto G6

If you want a reliable Android phone that looks good and performs well without costing an arm and a leg, look no further than the Moto G6. The G6 has an excellent 5.7-inch Full HD display with a tall 18:9 aspect ratio and slim bezels, front-facing fingerprint sensor, and dual 12MP + 5MP cameras on its back. The glass design looks fantastic, and with the Amazon Prime Exclusive version, you get Alexa built right into the phone.

Works with Moto Mods

Moto Z3 Play

The Moto Z3 Play is a phone that truly stands out from just about everything else. On its own, it features a beautiful 6-inch AMOLED screen, 12MP + 5MPM dual rear cameras, expandable memory, and the capable Snapdragon 636 processor. However, where things get really interesting is with Moto Mods. Thanks to the connection system on the back, you can attach a ton of different accessories to the Z3 Play in no time at all. You even get a 3,000 mAh battery Moto Mod included in the box!

Battery for days

Moto E5 Plus

Without a doubt, the main reason to buy the Moto E5 Plus is for its legendary battery life. Thanks to a combination of an HD display, power-sipping Snapdragon 435 processor, and gigantic 5,000 mAh battery, you can easily get through a day and a half of full use on just one charge. Heck, if you don't use your phone that much throughout the day, this could very well be a device that you only need to charge every other day.

Supports 5G

Moto Z3

Last but not least, we have the Moto Z3. This is a lot like the Z3 Play listed above, but it stands out for one big reason — it'll work with the upcoming 5G Moto Mod. Once the Mod's released, you'll be able to attach it to the back of the Moto Z3 and get access to blazing fast 5G data speeds. We're still not sure when the 5G Mod will be released, but it's definitely something exciting to look forward to.

Out of all the phones listed here, which is the best for you? If money isn't too much of an object and you want a phone that can do anything you throw at it, the Moto Z3 Play is a fantastic choice. It's a great phone on its own, but if you invest some money into the Moto Mod ecosystem, it can really be transformed into something special. On the budget side of things, the Moto G6 continues to deliver one of the best values you'll find in the industry right now.
