If pure Android is your OS of choice and money is no bar, the best phone in the market to get is the Google Pixel 2 XL. The Pixel 2 XL may have the same performance as every other flagship Android phone this year, but then Google phone more than makes up for it in the camera department.

OnePlus 6

All things considered, the OnePlus 6 is a great smartphone. In fact, it’s the fastest Android smartphone out there today. For Android lovers, and especially the enthusiasts, the OnePlus 6 is a good phone to consider. It has a commendable but not perfect camera, but it will do the job very well. Combined with decent battery life, it makes for a great smartphone.

Honor 10

Powered by HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC, the 2018 Honor flagship killer is one of the best looking phones we have come across this year. The performance is almost at par with the OnePlus 6, but the Honor 10 gains brownie points in the camera department as well as offering a better battery life. Best of all, the phones comes with Android Oreo out of the box.

Samsung Galaxy S8

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a great design and is without a doubt the most beautiful smartphone on the market today. It runs on a fast and up to date Exynos 8895 SoC, built on the 10nm process. Samsung has touched up on the camera as well, but it’s largely the same as last time. That, though means that the camera is still amongst the best in the market. Just not better than the Google Pixel (which is also why it’s behind that phone). The Galaxy S8 is the best Android smartphone for those looking for looks above all else.

HTC U11

HTC’s flagship for the year, the U11 brings together a nice combination of performance, camera prowess and design. Like all flagship phones of this year, the U11 is also powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. There is 6GB of RAM on the phone, along with 128GB of storage. All this makes the phone superfast, no matter what you throw at it. However, what we liked more on the phone was the 12MP rear camera, which takes really good pictures.

Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force may have been late to the party, but the phone can take a good amount of beating, quite literally. The phone features a shattershield display which means it can withstand normal drops quite easily. The phone is no slouch either as it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and can take on other last year flagships with ease. The battery life is a little less, and the camera also need some work.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2

The Mi Mix 2 is the second iteration of the much loved Mi Mix. The phone is now easier to hold, thanks to the smaller display, but it retains its beautiful bezel-less display. However, The chin at the bottom with the front facing camera is still an annoying compromise. Performance is taken care of by the qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and it is available with 128GB storage, which is plenty. The phone also has a very reliable battery life compared to other flagship smartphones.

Sony Xperia XZ1

Sony’s 2017 flagship may have the same performance as every other flagship in this list, but the phone there are certain compromises which is phone makes. The phone’s dated yet elegant design will appeal to Sony fans, but the smaller battery life and the inconsistent camera may not suit everyone.
