Keep in mind that I include the best phones that I have tested in recent months, and that there are cell phones from companies like Xiaomi and Oppo that have not been considered in this article.

LG K92 5G: a cheap and beautiful phone
The LG K92 5G is a phone that is priced at $ 395 and a design that sets it apart from its competition. Its high resolution screen gives us very vivid colors and its interface on Android feels quite comfortable, despite not being my favorite.
Its battery can last all day and although it has a mid-range processor, I had no problems playing games or doing several activities at the same time, LG even incorporates a dedicated video game mode.
Its set of four cameras gives beautiful photos, although not necessarily the best.
Galaxy A51 5G: the competition of the iPhone SE
The Galaxy A51 5G has been listed as the rival of the iPhone SE in that eternal struggle between Samsung and Apple to conquer the market. This phone, however, has some new features that the Cupertino company does not have, starting with 5G, but also an OLED screen with good colors, as well as a beautiful and different design.
The device can be purchased from $ 499 dollars and what stands out the most about this phone, in addition to its design or screen, is its battery, which has a certain fast charge.
Its four-sensor camera takes good pictures, as expected, although it doesn’t have the latest S21 innovations.
This phone has a good performance, although sometimes when connected to 5G the battery may not be your best ally, usually I ended up with a whole day, but sometimes it can vary.
Motorola One 5G: a big bet
The Motorola One 5G is priced the same as the Galaxy A51 5G, at $ 499, but after my testing, I consider it to be a better phone.
Not only does it have a huge 6.7-inch screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate, but it also has a better processor than previous phones, a better battery not only for size but because it lasts more than a day, and a total with six cameras, four rear and two front.
Something interesting, also, is that this cell phone has a small ring of light around one of its sensors to give you extra lighting in macro photos and videos.
In my tests, this phone had the best performance, but you should keep in mind that it has less RAM than the Samsung cell phone, which can be a problem depending on your daily use.
Galaxy A71 5g: a bit more expensive
The Galaxy A71 5G is slightly more expensive than the others on the list, costing $ 599 and being at the top of our budget. It is the same size as Motorola’s phone, it has a similar design to the Galaxy A51, although it has a larger screen and an improved camera.
However, they both have the same processor, the same battery and the same 5G technology, although the A71 has a faster fast charge, 25 watts.
If you like Samsung and want to pay a little more for a bigger screen and a little more battery, this phone may be for you.
5G: why do I care?
Although in Latin America there are still no networks with 5G connectivityYes, in Spain, the rest of Europe and the United States, and that means that it makes no sense to buy a phone that does not have this technology, when most operators already offer you 5G, whether or not your cell phone is compatible.
This means that in most cases you will end up paying for a rate that includes 5G, even if you do not have a compatible phone, except for some prepaid plans, which have an extra charge for 5G.
In general, all the phones I tested were successful with this connectivity. We also obtained good speeds in each case, although as always, this will totally depend on the area in which you are and the coverage of your operator.
If there is already 5G in your city and you have to change your mobile phone, I would not hesitate to acquire one with the new network technology.
