Are Samsung phones worth buying?

At a time where your phone is likely one of your most used – and most important – items you have, ensuring that you have a model and brand that fits into your lifestyle (and budget) is essential. But with plenty of options available – as well as incentives from telco providers to draw you in – it can be a tough choice to make, particularly when the latest models often don’t come cheap.

With Samsung keeping pace, and even leading the industry, in some areas, it has become a popular option for many, with options for the more budget-conscious as well as those who are after the latest and greatest from the tech company. But with a solid company reputation and wide array of models available, Samsung may be the ideal fit for many.
