Finder's team of experts have tested and reviewed every single phone featured in this guide to come up with our list of the best smartphones. For each phone, we assess and test the design, cameras, performance, battery life, and overall value for money.
Our editorial team selected the phones on this list based on their overall quality and value compared to other phones on the market.
Samsung's Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G combines the best of everything that Samsung can do, from its exceptional cameras, fast processor, S-Pen stylus support along with a genuinely refined design.
Apple has truly been dominating in the smartphone power stakes of late, but we reckon the best model to buy is the iPhone 12, because it includes the power of Apple's mighty A14 Bionic processor, tough ceramic shield glass and 5G at a more affordable plan price than the Pro series 12 handsets.
Samsung rewrote the rules when it made the Galaxy S20 FE, because it's a premium phone at a price well below other flagship devices, which means that you save serious money without taking on serious compromises in performance, camera or battery life.
If you want the best phone Apple makes and can wear the asking price, there's none better than the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max, from its A14 Bionic processor to its incredibly capable camera which makes taking pro-grade photos astonishingly easy.
Fans of Samsung's productivity-focused Note phones are well served by the Galaxy Note 20. Not only do you get the use of the S-Pen stylus with its own storage space in the phone's body, but you also get great 5G network performance on the Telstra network and highly capable cameras with extensive zoom capabilities, at a more affordable plan price than the Note 20 Ultra 5G.
Google's Pixel phones used to command premium price points, but it's more recently flexed towards affordable slick devices with guaranteed updates and smart AI-driven cameras. The Pixel 5 is technically the flagship of the line, but the Pixel 4a 5G is the smarter buy thanks to its larger screen and better battery life.
Samsung's greatest Note phone to date, the Note 20 Ultra 5G provides a lot of phones for your money. That includes an exceptional 6.9 inch 120Hz capable screen, great cameras for low light shooting, and naturally enough, S-Pen support for stylus work and artistic endeavors.
There's no doubting that a foldable phone is an absolute luxury buy right now, but picking one up on a Telstra plan makes it easier to afford Samsung's exceptional Galaxy Z Fold 2. Naturally, you get great performance and quality cameras to use, but the real appeal here is having a phone in your pocket that expands out into a totally workable Android tablet whenever you need it.
Not everyone who wants a great phone wants a great big phone. That's where the Apple iPhone 12 Mini comes in. As the name suggests, it's an iPhone 12, only smaller. That does have an effect on the battery life, but you're otherwise facing very few compromises in Apple's smallest and most affordable premium iPhone handset.
Oppo's not afraid to try something different, and for its flagship early 2021 handset, that's with the Find X3 Pro and its microscope camera. Yes, you read that right; alongside standard zoom and ultrawide lenses, the Find X3 Pro lets you see the world in an entirely new way, up really close and personal.
Today's best online deals include: 75% off deluxe massage chairs, 45% off mini wildlife cameras, 64% off BBQ Grill Charcoal Smokers.
The iPhone 13 is expected to launch in 2021 with four models to choose from. Here are the major improvements we're expecting to see.

The Oppo Find X3 Lite isn't a premium phone despite its Find X branding, but in the crowded mid-range space, it stands out mostly by doing very little wrong.
The Vivo X60 Pro 5G has its weak points for a flagship premium phone, but many will gladly overlook these issues for its combination of processing power and camera capabilities.
