Top 10 Unlocked Phones To Use Any Carrier of Choice

by John Martin Engineer

As everyone knows that most of the people in the US buy their smartphones through carriers like AT&T and Verizon. But they don’t have the freedom to choose their carriers freely. However, buying unlocked phones allows you to use any carrier as per your convenience. Even in most cases, unlocked smartphones carry more features or updates than the carrier-locked devices. 

Here are a few Android smartphones that you can buy if you wish to enjoy the services of an unlocked phone:

Pixel 3a

Pixel 3a is one of the best mid-range phones that are sold under the brand name of Google Pixel. It offers 12.2-MP single rear camera, which may not be as good as the multi-camera phones, but still captures impressive pictures.

Pixel 3a is also known for its software. Currently, Android 10 is the latest update available for the Pixel 3a. Google has assured Pixel 3a users that they will get regular security updates and patches. There are plenty of features like AMOLED display, fast fingerprint sensor and much more that makes it a good phone. It is compatible with most of the carriers like AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. 

Moto G Power

Undoubtedly, Pixel 3a is one of the best phones but Moto G Power is one of the best alternatives of the Pixel 3a. 

If you don’t like the design of the Pixel 3a, then you might find this smartphone more appealing. If you want to buy Moto G Power in place of Pixel 3a, then you need to expand your budget. The 16MP camera of G Power seems to be more productive, but it doesn’t produce the same image as Pixel 3a does. 

The 5,000 mAh battery of the G Power, gives additional battery life in a single charge. The display performance is quite good as it offers 1080Pixel display with slim bezels. The G Power offers the same compatibility as Pixel 3a. 

If you talk about the software, then you might get both good and bad aspects. But in future, there is the surety of Android 11 for Moto G Power although we don’t have information regarding the further updates yet. 


It is one of the best value smartphones that you can buy right now. You can get this phone at a low price. But low price does not mean low performance as it is loaded with several features and specializations that you wouldn’t expect from many smartphones at this price range. With this smartphone, you will get a 6.53-inches LED display with the Full HD+ screen’s resolution. 

It has the TCL’s screen technology that captures vibrant images and accurate colors. Here, you will get four cameras on the rear side of this smartphone, in which there is a 48MP main camera, 2MP macro camera, 8MP ultra-wide camera, and 2MP camera, which gives a perfect image. Additionally, there is a 665 Snapdragon Qualcomm processor along with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The phone gets pretty good and compatible with AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. 

Samsung Galaxy S20

Majority of the smartphones in this list focus on low budget unlocked smartphones, but when the price is not a major concern for you, then you can buy the Samsung Galaxy S20. 

All Samsung’s Galaxy S series smartphones have the best features and S20 is one of the best smartphones that has all the major advanced features. Besides, you will get all the deep colors with Samsung’s AMOLED tech and a resolution of 3200×1440. 

The presence of wide, telephoto and ultra-wide sensors in the phone makes it a worthy camera phone. With 12GB of RAM and 4,000 mAh battery, with expandable storage, it makes it a good pick for the unlocked phones in this list. 

Samsung Galaxy A71

Samsung Galaxy A71 is one of the smartphones that doesn’t get too much attention but deserves it due to its features. It can catch your attention from its design. Technically, it is plastic built, but laminated finish gives a glass look. There is a Super AMOLED display of 6.7-inches with the perfect resolution of 2400*1080 pixel. 

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor, 128GB expandable storage, and 6GB RAM make this phone a decent product to buy. One of the biggest issues with this smartphone is that it doesn’t come with the United States warranty. And another issue is that it doesn’t support Sprint and Verizon. 

Nokia 7.2

The Nokia 7.1 from 2018 is one of the best mid-range smartphones. Nokia 7.2 is the successor of this smartphone. It is one of the most beautiful phones with a glass back that has a 6.3inches LCD screen that supports native HDR content and produces a more colorful and vibrant picture.  

If you are looking for a decent camera phone, then it is one of the best smartphones you can have. It has everything to produce a perfect picture. Even the smartphone has the dedicated Google Assistant button that can perform your tasks in fractions of seconds. The company is going to provide major security updates in the next two years. 

Samsung Galaxy S10e

It is the smartphone, which proves great for the media consumption and can help you in creating more content. It offers a similar smartphone experience like its siblings S10 and S10+.

You will get a 5.8-inches AMOLED display that can allow you to use this single-handedly. It has the expandable internal storage capacity up to 128GB. If you want a wireless charger, then it is a perfect product for you. You don’t need to worry about the carrier connectivity as it works with all the major wireless providers in the United States. 

OnePlus 8

The OnePlus 8 has all the major updates, but misses out on some advanced features like wireless charging. It has the eye-catching design that makes it one of the stylish smartphones in this list. It has the latest 865 processor that gives a wonderful performance, and it has the finest battery life. 

It runs on the OxygenOS interface, which is based on the Android 10. Overall, it is one of the finest products on this list.

Samsung Galaxy A20

If you want an enjoyable Android device, then you can get this smartphone, but you need to pay a little more. The 6.4-Inches AMOLED display makes this smartphone a unique phone in this list. 

You might not love the 32GB storage, but you can expand it anytime up to 512GB. There you might find Samsung’s own processor and an excellent fingerprint sensor. It also works with most major GSM and CDMA networks. 

Moto E (2020)

It is another low-cost smartphone in this list. With this phone, Motorola has tried to offer maximum features in a small budget. 

There are some features that are not up to the mark. With a 632 Snapdragon processor and 2GB RAM, you will not find this phone as brilliant like others. However, you will get storage of 32GB with the HD+ display that is quite good. 

It can run most of the applications that you need in your day to day life. They have tried to keep the price as low as possible. It is not the best smartphone but can help you to perform all the major stuff.

Bottom line

These are all the best unlocked Android phones that you can buy right now. You can confidently pick Pixel 3a without having other questions in your mind.
