For those just getting to grips with what’s available, now is a great time to invest in a new phone.

3. Realme GT neo

Check Price on Lazada

Why Buy This:
For starters, the phone is great. Battery life lasts a day or more with moderate use. Incredibly fast charging. The screen is great. Sensitive and bright. The real downside of this phone is that activation on the AT&T network worked, but it doesn’t support 5g. I spoke to customer service on the phone and visited a store getting the same response from both. This phone should not be advertised as AT&T compatible when a MAJOR feature, such as 5g, cannot be used. If I had wanted a 4g phone I would have stuck with the old one! Just a heads up for potential buyers.
