Google’s Pixel 4 line is an excellent choice for Android lovers who love to capture the world around them in photos and videos – day or night.

Last but not least, there is an increasing demand for the return of a physical keyboard on select Android devices. With screens bigger than ever, trading a bit of screen size for a tactile keyboard is once again feasible. While not the most modern phone on the list in terms of technical specs, the BlackBerry Key2 is a worthy contender for those wanting that physical feel in their Android experience.
Featuring 64 to 128 GB of internal storage, a 3500 mAh battery (BlackBerry’s software is optimized for energy use, making this battery easily on par with other manufacturers’ 5000-mAh batteries) and 4.5” of screen in addition to the nifty physical keyboard make this latest addition to the BlackBerry line worth considering if you prefer a physical keyboard for day-to-day use in emails, typing and beyond.
Ultimately, the most worthy Android phone for 2020 depends on your preferences and day-to-day use. These four phones in particular each have their pros and cons, but balancing use factors such as multimedia, tactile preference, budget and all-around use mean that at least one of these Android phones would be excellent in the hands of virtually anybody shopping for a new device.
