Best-Rated Phones January 2019

Phonerated covers the best phones in dozens of categories, from your country to your local carrier, but this list shows the best 2019 (and 2018) phones for any country or any carrier.

We compile this list by gathering the ratings given to each phone by hundreds of reviewers worldwide, calculating the average score and ranking each phone with the model with the best ranking first, of course. If you wonder why the most popular handsets are not necessarily at the top of this list, it may just be because they didn't get the highest ratings in the reviews. We also present phones in an order that also depends on their age, because the best cell phone last year might not be the best one this year even though it got raving reviews 12 months ago.
