Go for Pixel, no better choice
dont listen to anyone recommending some mid tier samsung or xiaomi garbage
Pixel or S23, whichever fits your budget
try the M31, its good, 128gb, octacore, 6gb ram, average camera, nice battery, doesnt overheat and screen hard to break
been using it for 3 years and no complains at my part
If you can afford Pixel. cameras on these things > any other android
but overall i love Samsung's one ui tho, unlike the stock android . up to you man.
gl with your new phone
pixel is good, but I advise you to pay attention to Huawei P60 Pro and choose between them which one you like best
if you can afford it and if THE GOD DAMN CUSTOMER SERVICE OF IT IS GOOD IN YOUR COUNTRY, BECAUSE IT AINT HERE, the pixel is a solid phone. if not s23 or xiaomi mi 13 is really good too in terms of camera quality.
oh and i would never buy any of those top tier phones, because they are never worth it except the camera i always get a mid tier phone, i have a pro camera for photo and videos n stuff
I'm a professional phone critic I've been scrolling for years, at this stage in phone technology, pick the one you like and can afford, there really is no different in scrolling abilities these days, they all scroll the same.
People say if you use a Xiaomi, then install a custom ROM as MIUI is dogshit. Otherwise the phone specs are decent.
OnePlus isn't as good as it once was since Carl Pei left and OxygenOS was merged with ColorOS.
Pixels are the best Android phones for photos and videos. Google's Camera app along with their optimizations are just out of this world. No other phone comes close. It also benefits from being a pure stock Android. Android updates and new features also come first to it.
There are some QoL issues though. Like they only have 23W (18W on the a-series) fast charging MAX whereas other companies offer significantly more. The Tensor chips are basically Exynos chips and heat up more easily. They also eat up battery on 5G network (all chips do but these ones more than others). There's also 60Hz refresh rate on the Pixel 6a and "only" 90Hz on the 7a. The more expensive models are 120Hz though.
If you can look past these its a fantastic phone.
Samsungs are good all-rounders. OneUI has some bloat, but feels good to use. 120Hz screen, fast charging, decent all things considered. Again, camera doesn't come close to Pixels.
Thanks to everyone for the answers, HLTV mens never fails
Pixel if you can afford it
Otherwise a cheaper but decent option would be the poco f5
