You have many options at T-Mobile
T-Mobile’s network works with most unlocked phones, including those that support 5G. For best coverage, you need a phone that supports at least 5G bands n71 and n41. Fortunately, most of the best Android phones do, including those listed here. One thing to keep in mind when buying a phone directly from T-Mobile is that its payment plans typically last 24 months, so if you want to upgrade early, you’ll face balance issues.
Another thing to look out for is the new line discount. If you’re adding a line, T-Mobile is offering discounts on some phones, like the Pixel 6, and even the cheap Motorola One 5G Ace, which gets a new line for free. The Pixel 6 with the new lineup costs just $4.12 a month, which is a lot of money for this phone. The Pixel 6 supports all of T-Mobile’s 5G bands, even Wi-Fi 6E, and it’s sure to be a phone that will last for years.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra proved to be everything Galaxy Note fans were missing, with a big screen, solid battery life, and an included S-pen stored inside the phone. It’s a beast with 12GB of RAM, a 6.8-inch display, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 108MP main camera. The phone also supports all of T-Mobile’s 5G bands, including millimeter wave. If you’re looking for a full-featured phone, the S22 Ultra is a great place to start.
