What Will Be The Must-Have Phone Of 2024?

The definition of the must-have phone for 2024 will change depending on whom you ask. iPhone users who want all the bells and whistles of the fanciest camera and fastest chip will want the iPhone 15 Pro, while Android users wanting the same will go for the Samsung Galaxy S24.

But, if it’s innovative screen technology you care about, then the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 will be the star of the show because of its large, folding screen that blurs the line between phones and tablets.

“There really is something for everyone now,” says John Wong, The Good Guys – Mobiles and Plans. “There are small, light, stylish folding phones, like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 and affordable gems from Motorola, as well as some of the most advanced mobile chips on the market in the iPhone range.”

With the latest advances in phones, you can expect to see 5G more broadly across even the most budget ranges, faster chips for gaming, and even better cameras in the race for mobile photography supremacy.
