3. Google Pixel 3A XL

Google Pixel 3A XL is not a very impressive smartphone especially when it comes to the processor. In other departments, the phone fairs well depending on what a user is looking from a phone. Pixel 3A XL has a 6 inch Full HD Plus OLED display with a similar polycarbonate styled body as seen on the Pixel 3A. In terms of looks, there is no notch and it has a bezel-less type design.
