Worst Phone Brands


The Top Ten

1 AT&T

It's a carrier what?

Its not a phone brand idiots

I would pick apple iPhone

It's the whorst

2 Samsung

It's not the best alternative to iPhone, it's the worst. Worst things about Android were based on Samsung, not Android itself. I still trust Samsung, but not as a commodity brand. It's not the brand itself the worst, it's how it ruins the Android experience. It's just a waste of money to pay for a phone with shorter Android updates, even how user friendly the UI is. I respect that people buy it, because of design. What I mostly hate were the racist consumers. They choose Samsung over Apple, because of design, while others chose it over Chinese brands, because those consumers were pointlessly racists. The answer for Samsung, Apple and China phones problems were Google Pixel, Nokia, Motorola or Chinese phones that run Stock Android or Near Stock such as One Plus.

This is trash and their making fun of apple

I agree it sucks


3 Apple Apple Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Cupertino, California, that designs, develops, and sells consumer electronics, computer software, and online services.

I hate products with proprietary things, proprietary charging port and OS of Apple, proprietary skin of Samsung Android phones. I really hate their softwares, not hardwares. There are worst based on how they make softwares. Software industry is not really for Samsung, it's for Google, Microsoft, Xiaomi and Lineage OS. Samsung is a hardware specialist then Google is about software, the best phone will only exist, if they collaborate again in Android One program. It's best to switch back to Nokia or Motorola. It's best to only choose phones that run stock or at least near stock Android. So for those who still hate Chinese brands, Nokia is their one and only savior, from the 2 slavers, Apple and Samsung.

I'm an Android fan and I want universality, having a proprietary OS and connector were just my drawback. Then in Samsung, proprietary skin and bloatwares are my drawback. I would just go and recommend Google Pixel, its Android is pure as iOS is, if they don't know what phone should they buy. It's better to trust Google than just being a trend follower.

Great phones, just a horrible company that tries to eat every cent from your wallet. The operating system is too basic for my liking but great security

Worst Phone in The World

4 Nokia

At least is is unbreakable - Sovv

My nokia breaks walls, your smartphones can"t.

Top notch. Best mid range phones in the business.. I've had mine for a year.
Not one problem. Brilliant design runs smooth as silk. I detest Sammy and Icrap. Bad phones overpriced full of crappy bloatware and they can both funk off. The future is mid-range solid affordable phones. Funk plans too.. Go for Sim only plans, and save a bundle! ,😝

I hate Nokia phones I have one and it sucks they have so many bugs I mean come on when are they going to fix every thing just go with android screw nokia

5 Ericson

Yes real Worst mobile phones company.

6 Credo Mobile
7 Verizon Wireless

Again, a carrier not a phone.. - Aidanwade223

8 Xiaomi Xiaomi

Mi max 3
Works great
Big battery
Big screen
Small price
And tougher than diamond

Really very worst brand I've used it and getting so many issues with it

ALL Chinese phone brands are horrible in my opinion. My relatives have phones from Hong Kong and China, and they all HATED them! (We're Asian)

-They never work
-battery life is horrible
-can't connect to apple computers
-they are CHEAP, and cheap products are bad

I prefer Apple. It's 1 million% better than those horrible Chinese phones.

Worst smartphone brand, bought 3 different xiaomi phones, all 3 of them had issues. They have the worst customer service as well.

9 Huawei Huawei

Stick with getting a Samsung or an not this cheap garbage

Huawei is the worst, slowest, and poorest internet connection in the world. They are also unsafe.

Very very slow

Huawei is run by the Chinese government, and not only are they crappy phones, they also have tons of spyware.

10 LG

My phone is lg and honestly it sucks compared to other phones I hate it, it should be part of the top 10...

LG phone always overheating and we can use for warming our body in winter


This also shouldn't on the list, but it isn't the best either. The LG G6 is actually pretty good! - Aidanwade223


The Contenders

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

Bought the p2. has a great battery and awesome screen but everything else sucks. The loudspeakers get muffled as you're speaking then corrects itselfs and goes back, happens during video playback too sometimes. The speaker volume is so low that I have to bend my neck to listen to videos. NEVER EVER buying lenovo again

It's the worst phone I ever had. When I connected to the internet it lagged like hell and all apps are lagging especially games (even most light ones! ). Its useless and its connection to the internet sucks it loads nothing.

Lenovo is crap! I have Lenovo s850 and it gets lag sometimes I try. I know Lenovo is best for tablets and laptops but now seriously Lenovo smartphone is horrible - oshawott98

I have these pieces of junk Laptop at my schools are junk. - Aidanwade223

12 Oppo

They have the design I don't like, and their software is hard to use for me

I WILL CALL THE POPO ON OPPO! - Coastergirl003


For its price, don't expect miracles. Funny how people can be so myopic and opinionated.

13 Alcatel

I hate this company. They make a lot of awful phones like OneTouch and Tetra. Alcatel Tetra sucks it's one of the worst phones ever. Alcatel Sucks! 0/10. - Neinwott

I agree 2000 percent it always crashes or freezes also shuts off for no real reason I'm glad I don't have this brand any more

I have an Alcatel onetouch pixi which I haven't even had for two years and the screen freezes and battery dies easily

Plainly suck. Bad photo quality and...just sucks! Never buy it! Get and iphone or samsung, anything but this phone

14 Motorola

Terrible phone constant lags and slow connection none of the apps ever respond on the c plus do not get it trust me!

Why is it so hard to take a battery out of the e4. You have to get a tiny screwdriver and undo 4screws which you lose if you knock away.

15 Vivo

I think vivo is good.Nice phone brand.

Best phone ever

Actually it's a brand, but it is pretty bad though. - Aidanwade223

That is not a phone brand, use your brain. - Aidanwade223

16 Microsoft 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.

I hate windows smartphones

I hate any Windows phone, they are so hard to use. I rather use an iPhone 2G over this. - Aidanwade223

Worst company ever

17 HTC

Worst phone, It breaks every charger I put in within a couple months, battery is terrible and takes one percent off battery from a thirty second ad after I've been using it for awhile, it heats up after using it awhile, it has terrible battery life, oh and yeah it has terrible battery life, and you can't charge it because it breaks all the chargers!

Nice speakers, but eat up so much battery!

I bet you haven't heard the HTC 10, M9, etc. - Aidanwade223

Htc gets hang sometimes.

18 Sony Sony Sony Corporation, commonly referred to as Sony, is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in Kōnan Minato, Tokyo, Japan.

I want pink

Why is this also on the list, you don't know about phones. - Aidanwade223

Yet again, I think this is a stupid brand. They’re junk & freeze up! - Aidanwade223

My Sister Has a xperia Z3, Well...That Sucks!

This phone is horrible. I just got over a month ago. Nothing but problems since day 1. Drop phone calls most everything call, will call people on own, at night hear all kinds of sounds on it like someone on it. Feel like it's being hadacked. Now I know people w it all the people talk to say same issues. Take off market. Worst Metro I have had.


23 Asus Asus ASUSTeK Computer Inc., (stylized as ΛSUS) is a Taiwanese multinational computer hardware and electronics company headquartered in Beitou District, Taipei, Taiwan.

24 T-mobile

Not a phone brand - LaughingJokingNumbnuts


Not a brand! - Aidanwade223

25 Blu

Worst phone brand ever they only make average phones and try to initiate iPhone they have terrible RAM and is veryy slow.

I think this company don't deserve any attention, sending a faulty update that lock the users out of their fons, and top of that a spywares included in the system sending the user data to China.

26 Doogee

Best phone I ever had. Works like a charm!

Constant adware and bad camera, speakers, slow, bad signal etc. don't let me go on

27 Tecno

My tecno phone broke within 5 months after I bought it...I really hate Tecno

So bad doesn't do what I want, its slow and laggy...

Worst phone ever...if u r reading this, never even think about buying a tecno

I’d never heard of this, but they’re definitely junk.. - Aidanwade223

28 Cubot

For the money, great stock Android phone

Decent phone but ruined by Cheetah

29 Blackview

Blackview is the worst chinese phone company, they raise the price and lower the quality, I have one and it sucks

It's worser than a flip phone - Aidanwade223

Total garbage got the r6 for a week and the speaker stopped working, the plastic where the 3.5mm headphone jack is just peeled off, a lot of bugs I don't know about other models but never buy the r6 blackview that's why its cheap with good specs for the price.

Its crap

34 Lava Mobile

35 Itel

Not so bad

36 Acer Acer Acer Inc. is a Taiwanese multinational hardware and electronics corporation specializing in advanced electronics technology and is headquartered in Xizhi, New Taipei City, Taiwan.

This phone sucks bad. Had an Acer phone - NEVER AGAIN! It heats like crazy, especially while charging, lags bad, has crappy rear cammera and even worse front camera, screen goes off when you get a call, and you can't play music and text at the same time, cheap and thin plastic body and cheap feeling screen

Acer phones are so slow!

Acers are pieces of junk, I had an Acer laptop and it got a virus. I bet Acer phones are junk because they’re Android. But, I think their monitors are good. - Aidanwade223

Worst phone brand hands down. Many would say that you get what you pay for but for 50+ ($,£ etc.) you can get way better phones. They keep crashing, they bug a lot and I'm not even gonna go about the touchscreen. Poor performance,poorly optimized and poor specs. DO NOT BUY!
