Samsung is a South Korean company that has a bigger market share in the smartphone world than any other company, even topping Apple for the number of handsets it sells, and it’s been that way for a long time.
It’s most famous for the Galaxy S range, but Samsung makes all sorts of phones covering just about every possible price point. This wide selection coupled with the quality of its handsets is a big part of why it sells so many.
But Samsung plays other roles in the smartphone world too, as it also supplies screens and other components to other manufacturers. So without Samsung, phones from many other companies might either not exist or not be as good.

Which 5G Samsung phone should I choose?

At the top end there’s the ludicrously luxurious Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, while if you want something fairly cheap there’s the likes of the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G.
Then there’s all sorts in the middle, and even some impressive foldable phones, like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3.
Top 5G Samsung phone
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is arguably the top Samsung phone at the time of writing. While it’s not quite the most expensive (due to not being foldable), its specs in most areas are the best.
It has a 6.8-inch 1440 x 3200 AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, a powerful Exynos 2100 chipset, up to 16GB of RAM, a 5,000mAh battery, a premium design, and a quad-lens camera, with a 108MP main sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide, a 10MP telephoto (with 3x optical zoom), and another 10x telephoto (with 10x optical zoom).
Most affordable 5G Samsung phone
The Samsung Galaxy A22 5G is the most affordable Samsung phone with 5G at the time of writing. This has a 6.6-inch 1080 x 2400 screen with a 90Hz refresh rate, a big 5,000mAh battery, a capable Dimensity 700 5G chipset, and a triple-lens camera, with a 48MP main sensor, a 5MP ultra-wide snapper and a 2MP depth sensor. So it’s got a decent assortment of specs while selling at a low price.
Top value 5G Samsung phone
The Samsung Galaxy A52 5G is arguably the top value 5G Samsung phone, as it has a surprisingly high-end assortment of specs, including a 6.5-inch 1080 x 2400 Super AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, a speedy Snapdragon 750G chipset, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, water resistance, and a quad-lens camera, with a 64MP main sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide snapper, a 5MP macro camera and a 5MP depth sensor. All that, and it costs far less than a flagship phone.
Latest 5G Samsung phones
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 are among the latest Samsung phones with 5G at the time of writing.
These were both launched in August 2021, and they both have foldable screens. In the case of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 you get a big 7.6-inch main display that can fold shut – leaving you with a 6.2-inch secondary one, while the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is more compact, with a foldable 6.7-inch screen, and a tiny 1.9-inch one for when the main display is closed.
Both phones also have all-round high-end specs, so they won’t disappoint.
Samsung in summary
Samsung is a company that does it all when it comes to smartphones. It consistently makes some of the best high-end phones on the planet with its Galaxy S range, while with its Galaxy Z range it’s innovating and making foldables a reality, and with the Galaxy A range it’s offering great affordable and mid-range options.
So whatever you want from your phone, Samsung is a company that can probably provide it.
