Best T-Mobile Phones

The best phone options available from the third-place U.S. carrier.

Whether you’re a long-time T-Mobile subscriber looking to upgrade your phone or you’re switching and want to find out what’s available at a glance, we’re here to help.

We’ve broken down the best devices available to buy through T-Mobile. Check out our reviews to learn more about each of these and if you’re ready to take the plunge, we’ve included links to buy directly from T-Mobile.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+

Every carrier has to offer the latest Samsung Galaxy, and for good reason: this is the top-end phone everyone knows and lusts after right alongside Apple’s latest iPhone. T-Mobile of course offers both the Galaxy S8 and larger Galaxy S8+, but which size you want is purely personal preference — the experience is ultimately the same on both.

Samsung continues to go all-out on its hardware design, and the Galaxy S8 does it up right. The sleek and slim metal frame is accented by curved glass all over, and the new extra-tall 18.5:9 screen with tiny bezels is breathtaking.

Inside you obviously get all of the latest specs, including Samsung’s go-to features like wireless charging, waterproofing and an industry-leading display. It’s expensive, but you just can’t skip over considering the latest Galaxy when shopping for a flagship phone.

Be sure to read our Galaxy S8 review for the full take.

LG G6

The G6 is easily LG’s best overall flagship phone to date, and it directly competes with the top phones from other companies well. LG gave up the hardware gimmicks and stuck to a tried-and-true formula of a strong metal frame with a solid glass back, but picked up the style with a new 18:9 display that has really small bezels all around.

LG’s software still isn’t its strong point, but the styling has improved and it’s still fast and fluid. What is a point of strength is the pair of rear cameras, with an excellent main camera backed up by a great wide-angle camera for breathtaking shots you just can’t get anywhere else.

It may have an “older” Snapdragon 821 processor, but everything else on the G6 is top notch and you should absolutely consider it on T-Mobile.

LG V20

The LG V20 is a big phone with some powerful specs, and though it doesn’t have the general appeal of the LG G6 or Galaxy S8 it’s still a good choice for those who want something big, brawny and with some niche features.

With a pair of excellent rear cameras, a big, beautiful 5.7-inch screen, a removable battery and a high quality DAC, it has a lot going for it. Sure it’s big and doesn’t have the same svelte looks as the LG G6, but it has a lot going for it in its own right.

Making the V20 extra appealing is its generous price discount now that it’s a handful of months old — you can get it for under $500.

How to share your photo library in Google Photos

Google Photos has a major new feature, and it makes it easier to share your whole library with someone you trust.

Google Photos is already one of the best places to upload, archive and share photos, videos and albums. But recently, at Google I/O 2017, the company announced a new feature that would allow people to share their library with someone close to them, such as a parent, partner, child or best friend.

Obvious with sharing an entire library, there are some privacy concerns, so here’s what you need to know about the new feature.

How to share your library with someone

  1. Open Google Photos on your Android phone or tablet.
  2. Open up the left-side “hamburger” menu.
  3. Tap Share your library.
  4. Select person you want to share with from the list, or type in name.

  5. Select whether you want to share All photos or Photos of specific people.
    • If you select Photos of specific people, follow the instructions to choose the ones you want.
  6. Decide whether you want to share all photos or Only show photos since a specific day.
    • If you select Only show photos since this day, choose that day.
  7. Ensure all the details are correct and press Send invitation.
  8. Enter your phone’s PIN, pattern or password.

After that, if the person you sent the invitation to chooses to accept it, the photos you shared will be available to them.

How to remove access to a shared library

So you gave away a bit too much of yourself and now you want to take it back. That’s pretty easy, too!

A word of warning: People you give access to have the ability to save shared images, and automatically save future shared images, to their own library, so even if you retract access to your library, they may have a local copy.

  1. Open Google Photos on your Android phone or tablet.
  2. Open up the left-side “hamburger” menu.
  3. Tap on Shared with email address of the person you want to remove.
  4. Tap on three-dot menu button at the top right.
  5. Tap on Shared library settings.

  6. Tap on Remove partner.
  7. Confirm and tap on Remove.

Now that person will no longer have access to your library!

How to accept a shared library request from someone

If you’re on the receiving end of a shared library request, you can easily accept it and start scrutinizing perusing the photos in your special someone’s gallery.

  1. Open Google Photos on your phone or tablet.
    • If you received an email, open it and tap Accept invitation.
  2. Open up the left-side “hamburger” menu.
  3. Tap Invitation from person.
  4. Review photos in library and tap the ones you want to save.
    • If you want to save automatically, tap Start saving automatically.
    • Choose All photos to automatically save future photos to your library.

That’s it! You can now go through the other person’s library and choose the photos you want to save to yours. If you enable automatic saving, you’ll be notified whenever new photos are added to the other person’s library.
