Top 10 Best Cell Phone Brands

Your phone is practically an extra limb these days. It stores your photos, manages your schedule, and keeps you connected to everyone. With so much riding on this little device, choosing the best brand is crucial.

But what makes a cell phone brand stand out from the rest? Is it cutting-edge cameras, lightning-fast processors, or a battery that lasts for days on a single charge? Maybe it's a sleek design that catches your eye, or the reliability of a company that's been around for ages.
The Top Ten
1 Samsung The Samsung Group (or simply Samsung, stylized as SAMSUNG) is a South Korean multinational manufacturing conglomerate headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul, South Korea. It comprises numerous affiliated businesses, most of them united under the Samsung brand, and is the largest South Korean chaebol (business... read more

By far, Samsung makes the best phones and other products as well. I know friends and family who purchase Samsung products and have them for years and years. My brother still has the Samsung Galaxy S4, and my sister-in-law has the S3! They still run and work at the same speed as when they were brand new. How many brands and products can say that? Not many, would be my guess. If you're looking for a very dependable product, whether it's a phone, TV, or even a washing machine, Samsung is the brand you want.

In my opinion, Samsung is truly the best. I mean, it's in first place right now. Yes, Apple seems to be neck and neck with us, but honestly, that doesn't mean a thing. Apple has a lot of drawbacks, and yes, Samsung does too. However, Samsung has such a touch to your screen that is truly amazing. The size options are extensive, so you can choose whatever fits you. Samsung also has amazing quality.

2 Apple Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company that specializes in consumer electronics, software and online services headquartered in Cupertino, California, United States. Apple is the largest technology company by revenue (totaling US $365.8 billion in 2021) and as of May 2022, and, as... read more

Apple's new iPhone 6/Plus has been a great hit, making the phone look better than Samsung's Note 7! Sure, the Note 7 actually looks reasonably sleek, but Apple's distinctive rose gold adds a light touch that makes anyone want to purchase the phone. In the beginning, it was Steve Jobs who had the idea for this intelligent smartphone. Samsung decided to follow along later.

The majority of smartphone brands like LG, Samsung, HTC, BlackBerry, BLU, and Motorola run on Android Marshmallow. I am surprised that Apple has not been shut out with its own operating system. It's a bigger success and doesn't need Google. Other companies that tried to make their own operating system, like BlackBerry and Windows Phone, have sadly failed.

These days it's Android vs. Apple, and I choose Apple because of its unique 3D Touch and live photos. The camera shoots excellent panoramas with beautiful image stabilization, especially helpful for me, the one who drops and wiggles the camera. The phone is excellent, even for people getting their own phone. Yet, I do agree that it can break easily at times. However, this can be fixed with an OtterBox or a LifeProof case. Apple for the win!

3 Nokia Nokia Corporation (natively Nokia Oyj, referred to as Nokia; stylized as NOKIA) is a Finnish multinational telecommunications, information technology, and consumer electronics corporation, established in 1865. Nokia's main headquarters are in Espoo, Finland, in the greater Helsinki metropolitan area,... read more

No more thinking, everyone! I bet any amount of money that Nokia will be the best phone company in the world forever. I say this because Nokia only makes phones, nothing else like TVs, etc. In contrast, Sony Ericsson is not an independent company. It's a Sony company because of the "Sony" name before "Ericsson". Sony makes phones, as well as TVs, eReaders, digital radios, and many more things.

My uncle's Sony Ericsson k800i had many problems. The left selection key doesn't work, the phone calls contacts by itself without anyone touching it, and it has very poor music quality. Nokia, you've made it! But don't think that just because I say you're a good company, you can rest and stop making phones. Customers' opinions can change.

After my first HTC, I was hooked. It did everything I needed and more, and it was extremely durable. My last four phones have all been HTC models, and I never encounter any of the problems that my friends have with their phones.

My latest phone, the HTC Inspire, has been dropped several times a day for over a year. The screen finally cracked about a week ago after a 15-foot fall onto pavement, but it still works perfectly. Everyone is amazed because when their phones even barely crack, they are done for. I've dropped the phone several times since the screen cracked, and it still works as if nothing happened. I am an HTC buyer for life.

5 LG Electronics LG Electronics Inc. is a South Korean multinational electronics company headquartered in Yeouido-dong, Seoul, South Korea. LG Electronics is a part of LG Corporation, the fourth largest chaebol in South Korea, and often considered as the pinnacle of LG Corp with the group's chemical and battery division... read more

Actually, I haven't used this phone recently because for the past years, I've been loyal to Nokia. I've been using it for the past five years because it is very user-friendly.

However, my brother bought an LG phone and convinced me to try it. So, I bought one at the mall and started using it. Ironically, it works for me and fits my needs, just like a Nokia.

I've been stereotyping other phones and had only given my commendation to Nokia because I believed Nokia was the only phone that catered to users. However, just like LG, it has a good battery condition that will last up to more than a week, compared to Nokia, where the battery lasts 4 to 5 days. I may now use it and honestly love this phone.

6 Motorola Motorola, Inc. was an American multinational telecommunications company based in Schaumburg, Illinois, United States. After having lost $4.3 billion from 2007 to 2009, the company split into two independent public companies, Motorola Mobility and Motorola Solutions on January 4, 2011... read more

Put this in the top 3. Samsung phones are bloated. Apple phones are for fanboys (except for the iPhone 5S, which would be the perfect iPhone in terms of size and beauty). Motorola? Not bloated, feature-rich, and has been around longer than most other companies.

Who created the RAZR series that shocked the world about 10 years ago? Who was the first to make Android seem on par with iOS? And who was the one to make the original phone? Motorola. If anyone deserves to be the best, it's Motorola.

I have had my Motorola V170 flip-phone for 16 years and have used it daily. I've had to replace the battery a few times. How many people can say they have used the same phone for 16 years? I would keep using it, but I just found out that the 2G technology is obsolete, and soon the phone will not work because of that.

I am thrilled to hear the RAZR is coming back.

7 Blackberry

Honestly, in years past, I would have run for the hills before ever choosing a BlackBerry. But the Z10 is incredible. With the Android runtimes, I can run almost any Android app as well as everything from BlackBerry World. Hands down, it's one of the coolest phones I've ever used.

And let's face it: RIM will likely stop making these types of devices and move further into software development. I'm sure they'd like to exit knowing they have satisfied customers. I believe that by working their buns off with this one, they're doing just that. I've used all the other types of phones, and they each have their strengths, but I found this to be a very nice change. There's no crime in being the underdog.

8 Huawei Huawei is a Chinese multinational technology company founded in 1987. It specializes in telecommunications equipment, consumer electronics, and smart devices. Huawei is one of the world's largest suppliers of telecommunications infrastructure and has a significant presence in the smartphone market... read more

From the start, I always thought that Huawei was just another fake brand like MERCURY (anyone heard of it?). But after I bought it, I was fascinated beyond words. It is so cool! Every feature and function is just amazing. I personally think it is the best phone brand ever! I will always buy Huawei phones, and I am sure of that.

I may try the P7 as the latest release. I saw lots of advertisements in European airports several years ago. It should be tier-1 quality. What I most appreciate are the security, durability, and NFC after many years of experience. I hope to keep my personal data (PIM, location) in the right hands.

9 MyPhone

The quality of this phone is long-lasting compared to Android phones made in China, but they are almost in the same price range. I would recommend this phone if you are looking for a device with a reasonable budget but still want a quality phone. The only drawback is the RAM. It would be much better if the RAM were at least higher compared to high-end phones. However, for its price range, it is better than others.

So long, Philippines. We hope this will be our flag carrier when it comes to phones, just like Samsung is to South Korea.

It's really great to choose MyPhone. Even the touchscreen phone from MyPhone is great. Why? Because when you drop this phone, it doesn't easily break, unlike other brands. And when you drop it for the first, second, or even third time in some cases, it doesn't lag like other brands do.

So, after the third time you've dropped it, I don't know if it will lag, but for its price, it's so worth it. Love ya, MyPhone!

10 Google Google is an American multinational technology company specializing in Internet-related services and products. These include online advertising technologies, search, cloud computing, and software.

Watch out, Google Pixel! I'm coming out with a new phone in 2019, so be prepared for that!

They used to be great value, but they got super expensive.

The Contenders
11 Siemens

Superb durability and the most rugged mobile I have ever used.

12 Verizon Verizon Communications Inc., commonly known as Verizon, is an American multinational telecommunications conglomerate.

Verizon is one of the only ones that I've ever gotten to give me good service. Many other phones don't get good reception where I live, but Verizon always has! It should definitely be in the top 10!

13 Sprint Sprint was an American telecommunications company that provided wireless services and was an internet service provider. Founded in 1899 as the Brown Telephone Company, it later merged with several entities and became Sprint Corporation. Before its merger with T-Mobile USA in 2020, Sprint was one of... read more

Originally based in Germany, T-Mobile has operations in various countries and focuses on providing innovative and customer-friendly products. The company aims to be... read more
15 Windows
16 Microsoft Microsoft Corporation is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Redmond, Washington, that develops, manufactures, licenses, supports and sells computer software, consumer electronics and personal computers and services.

Microsoft deserves to be at the top...seriously.

The best Windows phone producer.

17 BLU

Solid phone, great features, best price. For GSM carriers, these phones are amazing. Blu phones can match features and performance and, in several cases, outperform the competition. Blu is seriously worth checking out before you hand over several hundred dollars to big-name carriers for a big-brand phone.

BLU phones are simply amazing! I have had my phone for nearly two years, and it still works just fine for a phone that old. I have gotten my entire family hooked on BLU, and it hasn't disappointed. The phones are not expensive, which is very convenient for my large family.

18 Sharp Sharp Corporation is a Japanese multinational corporation that designs and manufactures electronic products, headquartered in Abeno-ku, Osaka.
19 Asus ASUSTeK Computer Inc., (stylized as ΛSUS) is a Taiwanese multinational computer hardware and electronics company headquartered in Beitou District, Taipei, Taiwan.

This is the best brand of phones because it follows the 4 tips to choose a smartphone:

1. Phones must have at least 1 GB of RAM.
2. Phones should have large internal storage space. The minimum should be 8 GB.
3. Phones should have great camera quality.
4. Good battery life.

You know, all ASUS phones follow these tips. There is no type of ASUS phone that hasn't met these criteria, so I support ASUS. Other phone brands also offer good quality, but some of their models have poor form or systems. However, with ASUS, there is no phone that functions poorly.

20 Lenovo Lenovo Group Ltd. is a Chinese multinational technology company with headquarters in Beijing, China, and Morrisville, North Carolina, United States.

I heard that Lenovo is one of the co-founders of FIDO. It should be the type of company that treats personal security, identity, and convenience in the right way. I may consider trying Lenovo when it is possible.

My Lenovo phone falls every day, but the screen has not cracked, and it still works. I have used my phone for five years.

Lenovo is a brand to be relied upon in every aspect, i.e., innovation, style, performance, and build quality.

21 Alcatel

I only buy Alcatel. Alcatel is the only brand where you pay for what you get and don't pay just for the brand name, like with Apple and Samsung. Alcatel's latest phone, Hero 2, is better than any phone ever made!

I got an Alcatel OT-802Y phone. I think it's the best phone that has passed through my bare hands. It's great because it has a QWERTY keypad and sensitive navigation. You can also enjoy the internet through WAP/GPRS. It also supports push email. I've dropped it three times, and it still works without any malfunction. I recommend it to everyone. You will never regret it.

22 Micromax

Very good quality mobile phones. Best at such a price. No other brands can replace them. Good specifications and good picture clarity. My phone fell into water three times, and sometimes I think it is water-resistant. It's also fallen down many times. So good.

Its new Android phones and tablets are really good and affordable. I just love them. Right now, I'm using the Canvas 2.

It's awesome! The phones are really good and long-lasting. It is the best of all phones.

23 Sanyo Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd. is a Japanese major electronics company and formerly a member of the Fortune Global 500 whose headquarters was located in Moriguchi, Osaka prefecture, Japan.

Motorola's "Moto" line of phones is awesome.

Sanyo has won plenty of J.D. Power awards! They make the 8300, 4930, and the 2300, to name a few!

24 Panasonic
25 AT&T Focus
