1. What 5G phones are currently available?

There are currently over 50 phones available in the UK that support 5G.

Popular 5G phones include the iPhone 12 range, Samsung Galaxy S20, Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus, Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5G, Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, Samsung Galaxy A90 5G, OnePlus 8T, OnePlus 8 Pro, OnePlus 8, OnePlus Nord, Huawei Mate 40 Pro, Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro and the Huawei P40 Lite. All current iPhone models don't support 5G, so if you own an iPhone you'll need to upgrade to a 5G phone to enjoy the faster speeds offered by 5G networks.

iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini

The iPhone 12 is Apple’s latest main iPhone, standing out as a great middle ground between the iPhone 12 Pro and the compact iPhone 12 Mini.

It has a 6.1-inch OLED screen, a dual-lens camera, a premium design, and truly top-end power from its A14 Bionic chipset. The iPhone 12 Mini is a very similar phone, but it’s a lot more compact at 5.4 inches, and therefore costs less.

iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max

The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are Apple’s top phones in two different sizes – the Pro has a 6.1-inch screen, while the Max has a 6.7-inch one.

Other than the potentially bigger screen, the main way these stand out from the rest of the iPhone 12 range is in the cameras. They have an extra lens (a telephoto one), and even a LiDAR scanner, which should lead to next-level augmented reality experiences.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is a super-premium phone just like the S20 Ultra, but being a Note it comes with an S Pen stylus.

That allows you to write and sketch as if using a pen or pencil on its 6.9-inch 1440 x 3088 screen. And it’s a screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support, so it looks great.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra also has a powerful Exynos 990 chipset, 12GB of RAM, and a triple-lens camera, with a 108MP main sensor, a 12MP telephoto one (with 5x optical zoom), and a 12MP ultra-wide one.

The phone has a big 4,500mAh battery too, plus plenty of other flagship features, making it a top-quality 5G phone.

Samsung Galaxy S20 5G

The Samsung Galaxy S20 5G is one of a trio of flagships from Samsung, all of which come in 5G flavours – but note that there’s also a 4G version of this phone, so make sure you buy the right one.

The S20 5G, as well as 5G, stands out through its super sharp and super smooth 6.2-inch 1440 x 3200 Dynamic AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate – which is double what most phones offer.

You also get truly top-end power from its Exynos 990 chipset paired with 12GB of RAM, and there’s a great triple-lens camera, with 12MP main, 64MP telephoto, and 12MP ultra-wide lenses.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 also packs a big 4,000mAh battery, a premium design, and is available from EE, Vodafone, O2, Three, Sky Mobile, Tesco Mobile, VOXI and BT Mobile.

1.3 Huawei 5G Phones (plus Honor)

Huawei Mate 40 Pro

The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is Huawei’s 2020 phablet flagship, designed as an alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

It has incredible cameras, with an excellent 50MP main one, a 12MP telephoto one, and a 20MP ultra-wide one. It also has a great 6.76-inch screen, a high-end Kirin 9000 chipset, and a stylish design, with a near-unique camera housing. Just note that as with most Huawei phones you don’t get access to the Google Play Store with this.

Huawei P40 range

The Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro are Huawei’s rivals to the Samsung Galaxy S20 range, and they’re strong rivals too, not just packing 5G but also a top-tier Kirin 990 chipset, up to 8GB of RAM and 50MP main snappers.

The Huawei P40 Pro’s main camera is joined by three other lenses, and the phone additionally has a 6.58-inch 1200 x 2640 90Hz screen, a 4,200mAh battery, and water resistance, while the standard Huawei P40 has two additional lenses, a 6.1-inch 1080 x 2340 screen and a 3,800mAh battery.

Both phones are great, but notably neither comes with the Google Play Store, so you’ll have to use other stores for your apps.

These two handsets have since been joined by the even higher end Huawei P40 Pro Plus, which is like the P40 Pro but with a ceramic build, an extra lens (for five rear ones in total) allowing for 10x optical zoom, and more storage (up to 512GB).

And if you want something lower end (and therefore a lot more affordable) there’s the Huawei P40 Lite, which has landed with a 6.5-inch 1080 x 2400 screen, an upper mid-range Kirin 820 chipset, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a 4,000mAh battery, and a quad-lens camera, headlined by a 64MP sensor.

1.4 OnePlus 5G phones

There are currently 6 OnePlus 5G phones available to buy or coming soon, including the flagship OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8T, and the affordable OnePlus Nord. Key handsets include those in the chart below.

OnePlus 8T

The OnePlus 8T is the company’s final 2020 flagship, though it’s actually a slightly lower end and more affordable phone than the OnePlus 8 Pro.

It’s still packed full of premium features though, including a 6.55-inch 120Hz display, a Snapdragon 865 chipset, and a quad-lens camera, with main, ultra-wide, macro and depth sensors. With up to 12GB of RAM as well there’s plenty of power, and the OnePlus 8T has a big 4,500mAh battery with incredibly fast 65W charging too.

OnePlus Nord and OnePlus Nord N10 5G

The OnePlus Nord is one of the cheapest 5G phones yet, as you can buy it SIM-free from just £379. For that you get a phone with a 6.44-inch 1080 x 2400 AMOLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate.

It also has a quad-lens rear camera, a dual-lens front-facing camera, a 4,115mAh battery, an upper mid-range Snapdragon 765G chipset, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.

There’s also a model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, but that costs more at £469. Still, either way you’re getting a whole lot of phone and loads of cameras for not much money.

Then there’s the OnePlus Nord N10 5G, a phone that remarkably is even cheaper, albeit not much. This also has a 90Hz screen and a quad-lens camera, but it’s slightly less powerful and has an LCD display rather than an OLED one.

OnePlus 8 Pro

The OnePlus 8 Pro comes with 5G as standard and it’s the best phone OnePlus has ever made, with the highlight being its 6.78-inch 1440 x 3168 screen with a 120Hz refresh rate – a refresh rate that’s higher than the vast majority of phones.

The OnePlus 8 Pro also packs a top-end Snapdragon 865 chipset and up to 12GB of RAM, so coupled with 5G nothing will slow it down.

There’s a quad-lens camera too, plus water resistance, a big 4,510mAh battery, wireless charging and up to 256GB of storage.

1.5 Xiaomi 5G Phones

There are currently 4 Xiaomi 5G phones available to buy including the flagship Xiaomi Mi 10 and the more affordable Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G and Xiaomi Mi Mix 3.

Google Pixel 5

The Google Pixel 5 is Google’s latest flagship, though it uses an upper mid-range chipset which means it’s cheaper than most high-end phones.

It’s one of Google’s first 5G phones, but it also has a high-quality 6.0-inch 1080 x 2340 OLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate, plus a great dual-lens camera, combining a top-quality 12.2MP main sensor with a 16MP ultra-wide one.

There’s also 8GB of RAM and – unusually for a modern phone – a metal back, giving it a slightly different look and feel to most handsets.

Google Pixel 4a 5G

The Google Pixel 4a 5G is Google’s cheapest 5G phone, but this is more than just a 5G version of the Google Pixel 4a, it’s actually a quite different – and better – handset.

It has a nippy upper mid-range Snapdragon 765G chipset (the same as the Pixel 5), plus a 6.2-inch 1080 x 2340 OLED screen, a flagship-quality camera, and excellent software.

Sony Xperia 5 II

The Sony Xperia 5 II is a smaller alternative to the Sony Xperia 1 II flagship, though at 6.1 inches it’s hardly tiny.

As well as 5G it has a top-tier Snapdragon 865 chipset, a triple-lens camera, a 120Hz refresh rate, and 8GB of RAM, so it’s still high-end, just relatively compact.

2. Frequently Asked Questions

Is my phone 5G-ready?

If you have one of the phones listed above then it should be (though in a few cases there are both 4G and 5G versions of handsets, so you should still double check your phone’s paperwork).

If you don’t have one of the handsets above then it probably won’t support 5G and you’ll need to buy a new phone to get 5G.

Note that if you buy one of the phones directly from the links above it will always be the 5G model.

What is the cheapest 5G phone?

The very cheapest will fluctuate over time, but the lowest price option available at the time of writing is likely to be the Moto G 5G Plus, as this starts at just £299.99 SIM-free. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G and Realme X50 5G are the same price but aren’t as widely available.

However, other very affordable options include the OnePlus Nord, OnePlus Nord N10 5G, Samsung Galaxy A42 5G, and the Huawei P40 Lite 5G, with the Pixel 4a 5G, Oppo Find X2 Lite, Motorola Edge 5G, TCL 10 5G, and Samsung Galaxy A51 5G being almost as affordable.

What is the best 5G phone?

The best 5G phone is somewhat subjective, but at the time of writing the best overall is likely the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. This is Samsung’s top entry in the S20 range.

However, depending on what you want from your phone you might prefer something else, such as the Sony Xperia 1 II with its super sharp screen, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra with its stylus, the OnePlus 8 Pro with its Samsung-rivalling specs, or the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 with its foldable display.

Are any dual-SIM 5G phones available?

Yes, the Samsung Galaxy S20 range all support dual-SIM, as does the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 range, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, Samsung Galaxy A90 5G, Samsung Galaxy A71 5G, Galaxy A51 5G, Galaxy A42 5G, the iPhone 12 range, Google Pixel 5, Google Pixel 4a 5G, Sony Xperia 1 II, Xperia 5 II, OnePlus 8T,  OnePlus 8 Pro, OnePlus 8, OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, OnePlus Nord, OnePlus Nord N10 5G, Motorola Edge 5G, Moto G 5G Plus, LG V50 ThinQ, Xiaomi Mi 10 range, Oppo Reno 4 Z 5G, Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G, Oppo Find X2, Oppo Find X2 Pro, Oppo Find X2 Lite, Huawei Mate 40 Pro, Huawei P40 Pro range, Huawei Mate 20 X 5G, Realme X50 5G, Realme X50 Pro 5G, Asus ROG Phone 3, and TCL 10 5G.

Note however that in some cases single-SIM versions may be sold as well, so if this is something you care about double check the specs of the model you’re buying.

Also note that in the case of the iPhones and Pixels, the second SIM is an eSIM, not a physical one.
