5 top android devices of 2020

While the argument of which is better rages on, if you have your heart set on an Android (News - Alert) device rather than giving in to the seductive charms of Apple, there are some truly amazing devices out there. It almost feels as if every year, or every other year, another great Android smartphone or tablet is released. In the following post, from Now-loan, to help you pick out the latest device to enhance your life and stay connected, check out our shortlist.

Samsung (News - Alert) Galaxy S20

It wouldn't be a fair and honest look at the best android devices if it didn't feature at least one version of the long-running and hugely popular Samsung Galaxy range of smartphones. The S20 possibly the best phone made by the company right now. As well as being powerful and extremely compact, it also has a versatile camera. Okay, so it's not quite up to the same level as the detail or zoom on offer with the S20 Ultra, but it is still the best overall.

OnePlus 8 Pro

To say the 8 Pro from OnePlus, a model that has been desired for a long time by fans of the manufacturer, is one of the best smartphone handsets on the market, it is putting it lightly. It comes with many of the most sought-after features from modern phones such as IP68 rated waterproofing and wireless charging that makes it one of the best competitors to Apple (News - Alert)'s biggest rivals, Samsung.

This comes at a compromise over price, as it is not the cheapest Android handset. What saves it from being a misfire is the hardware that OnePlus has become known for. Even though the camera lacks a little compared to the competitors, in terms of software, the hardware more than makes up for it.

Add to that the fact that it is 5G ready and has a sophisticated design and you have a phone that if you can afford you should definitely consider.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e

Just as it would be unrealistic to discuss the best android phones of 2020 and not discuss Samsung at all, the same is true of tablets. That is why we had to highlight the rather awesome Galaxy Tab S5e. What makes this so special? It features the popular quad-speaker sound system and stunning screen of the earlier S4 model but places them in an even more streamlined and lighter model with a robust metallic build.

If you are looking for a tablet for entertainment purposes, this is a fine choice.

Amazon Fire HD 2018

Looking to save a little money on the RRPs of Samsung and other's tablets? Can you survive without all the Google (News - Alert) apps? The Fire HD 8 from Amazon, originally released in 2018, is still an excellent choice. Handsfree Alexa and the option to link it up with the Show Mode dock make this a no-brainer of a choice for Amazon fans.

Realme X50 Pro

Realme may not be the first brand that comes to mind when you think of Android smartphones, but trust us, the X50 Pro has a lot to recommend it. It's 5G-ready, for a start. Furthermore, it benefits from the very best version of Snapdragon, the 865 chipset and offers RAM (News - Alert) of up to 12GB, the superb 65W SuperDart lightning speed charging, and UFS 3.0 storage. We could go on, but we don't think we need to.
