Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+
Every carrier has to offer the latest Samsung Galaxy, and for good reason: this is the top-end phone everyone knows and lusts after right alongside Apple’s latest iPhone. T-Mobile of course offers both the Galaxy S8 and larger Galaxy S8+, but which size you want is purely personal preference — the experience is ultimately the same on both.
Samsung continues to go all-out on its hardware design, and the Galaxy S8 does it up right. The sleek and slim metal frame is accented by curved glass all over, and the new extra-tall 18.5:9 screen with tiny bezels is breathtaking.
Inside you obviously get all of the latest specs, including Samsung’s go-to features like wireless charging, waterproofing and an industry-leading display. It’s expensive, but you just can’t skip over considering the latest Galaxy when shopping for a flagship phone.

The G6 is easily LG’s best overall flagship phone to date, and it directly competes with the top phones from other companies well. LG gave up the hardware gimmicks and stuck to a tried-and-true formula of a strong metal frame with a solid glass back, but picked up the style with a new 18:9 display that has really small bezels all around.
LG’s software still isn’t its strong point, but the styling has improved and it’s still fast and fluid. What is a point of strength is the pair of rear cameras, with an excellent main camera backed up by a great wide-angle camera for breathtaking shots you just can’t get anywhere else.
It may have an “older” Snapdragon 821 processor, but everything else on the G6 is top notch and you should absolutely consider it on T-Mobile.

The LG V20 is a big phone with some powerful specs, and though it doesn’t have the general appeal of the LG G6 or Galaxy S8 it’s still a good choice for those who want something big, brawny and with some niche features.
With a pair of excellent rear cameras, a big, beautiful 5.7-inch screen, a removable battery and a high quality DAC, it has a lot going for it. Sure it’s big and doesn’t have the same svelte looks as the LG G6, but it has a lot going for it in its own right.
Making the V20 extra appealing is its generous price discount now that it’s a handful of months old — you can get it for under $500.
