17) iPhone SE (2020)
If you are a fan of Apple and adore taking pictures, iPhone SE is a great smartphone option that you can vouch by! Although this could be a good purchase for you at $399, the lagging battery life is just a bummer for anyone looking for a good two to three years run.

16) Google Pixel 3a
Ok! So first off, Google introducing a fully featured phone was a definite grab for me because why not? Coming off with a neat and uninterrupted Google interface, the Google Pixel 3a can be included as one of the best smartphones in 2020. Not to mention, the camera quality is excellent, along with a high-res display. And yes! You get all fully supported Google features without any hassle. However, one of the odd things that just set me off is the type of material being used over the body, Yes Plastic! Google Pixel 3a has lost some points on aesthetics.
15) Oppo Find X2 Pro
This has got to be one of the best smartphones in 2020! First of all, let this be clarified that Oppo phones are just amazing, and the market feedback that I have observed is also pretty satisfactory.
