So, let’s start the list of best unlocked Android phones in 2020.

Google Pixel 5 

This latest Pixel is not what everyone expected from Google, but it can perfectly suit your needs. The fascinating fact about this phone is its camera. Google is making massive improvements in this field, and it looks like it will be an outstanding competitor in the future. With Snapdragon 765 G Processor, alongside 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, it makes a pretty good jump from the previous devices they have made. In addition, it brings up some old-school and new features, such as a physical back fingerprint scanner, wireless charging, and a better IP rating for water and dust resistance. If you want to choose Google’s devices, this is one of their top choices for unlocked Android phones with prices of around $700.

Sony Xperia 5 II 

By far, this is the best phone that Sony has ever released, in my opinion. 6.1 inch Sony Xperia 5 keeps still hand-friendly phone size. For some people can be hard to reach full-length with one hand. Very narrow dimensions are making this phone more comfortable to hold than others. It’s a very light phone with IP 65/68 rating for dust and water resistance. Mostly it comes up with black and blue versions of the phone with Gorilla Glass that is a perfect visual match for the phone. As usual, Sony adds up two more buttons on the edges, one for the camera app and shutter button, while another is used to activate “Google assistant.” OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate is going to bring you the maximum out of video experience. The latest Snapdragon 5G chipset is running this smartphone with 8GB RAM. The internal storage of 128GB is more than enough for all your fantasies. 4000 mAh battery provides around 18 hours of active playing, with fast charging support. Three 12 MP cameras and an 8 MP selfie camera can give you everything you need for a perfect photo session. 

To sum it up, it’s a fantastic phone for a price of a bit under $750.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.

The best is left for the end. Although ASUS ROG 3 is my favorite as a gamer, I can’t deny that Samsung is still a leader in its class. Samsung released many new phones in 2020, but this is our top choice. There’s nothing much to say about it. Light, 6.5″ inch Super AMOLED screen. Snapdragon 865 5G with 6/8GB RAM versions. With Samsung’s triple back camera, quality shouldn’t even be discussed. As always, with SAMSUNG, your experience will always be indescribable. It comes in the price range between 500$ – 800$.
