Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 edge

Galaxy S7

The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are Samsung’s flagship devices for the year and the two best Android devices on the market. Both smartphones feature cameras with advanced features we all want, a fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button, and a Power Saving mode that actually works.

The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge run on the same hardware, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and 4GB of RAM. The 5.1-inch Galaxy S7 comes equipped with a 3000 mAh battery and is available in black and gold, while the 5.7-inch Galaxy S7 edge comes with a 3600 mAh battery and is available in black, gold, and silver.

If you’re the Bear Grylls type, you might also want to check out the Galaxy S7 Active, which is an AT&T exclusive. It’s the ruggedized, nearly life-proof version of the Galaxy S7, and it has all the same features in addition to a significantly larger 4000 mAh battery, better water resistance, and shock resistance.

LG G5

The LG G5’s modular smartphone offerings might not be your thing, but that doesn’t discount the fact that the G5 is still a solid smartphone. LG’s flagship features a Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM, removable storage, and a removable battery. Its rear-facing 16-megapixel and secondary wide-angle camera are a delight, too. As written in the original G5 review, “The cameras are where LG really shines with its phones.”

The G5 also comes with a whole host of “friends” — that is, swappable modules that you can pop on and off the G5’s chassis, though there are still only two to choose from, including a helpful camera module that adds on physical camera controls.

The LG G5 is available in four colors, including pink, gold, titan, and silver.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Galaxy Note 7

AT&T’s got Samsung’s latest phablet, too. The Galaxy Note 7 is the sixth-generation successor to last year’s Galaxy Note 5 and it’s a major improvement. The 5.7-inch smartphone features the same Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, and stellar 12-megapixel rear-facing camera as its flagship predecessors listed above. It’s also equipped with a pressure-sensitive stylus and it’s water resistant, so you can take it with you into the pool to take some notes — though don’t dunk it for too long! The device can only withstand five feet of water for up to half an hour.

Note: Samsung has issued a broad recall for the Galaxy Note 7 due to battery issues. We still recommend the Note 7, but we advise checking with AT&T to ensure that it has received new stock of the phone that was made after the recall. Follow the link below for more information.

AT&T has also suspended sales of the phablet until the recall has been “called off.”

LG G3

LG G3

Sometimes, the best budget phone is merely an older flagship. If you’re looking to save some cash but still want a smartphone that’s worth wielding, AT&T is offering the certified pre-owned LG G3 for a mere $160 upfront. That’s quite affordable for an older smartphone that’s still pretty capable.

Most budget smartphones will skimp out on the processor and camera performance, but you don’t have to compromise with an older high-end smartphone. The G3, which launched in 2014, features a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 3000 mAh battery. It also comes with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera that was actually quite capable for its time, though its low-light performance isn’t as good as what you’d get with today’s flagships. No matter: for the price, it takes better photos than anything the pricier Samsung Galaxy J3 offers — that shoots at a measly 5 megapixels!

You don’t have to worry about the G3 being pre-owned, either. AT&T offers a two-week trial period after you purchase the device, so you can take it for a test run before you fully commit. The only bummer is that you’ll miss out on an official update to Android 7.0 Nougat, though you will be able to update to Marshmallow.
