Samsung Galaxy S8

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a great design and is without a doubt the most beautiful smartphone in 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.

Samsung Galaxy S8+

The same applies to the Samsung Galaxy S8+ too. It’s an extremely powerful smartphone, but unlike the S8, this one’s meant for big screen lovers. It has a 6.2 inch QHD display and Samsung’s AMOLED panels look as good as ever. It carries the same design as the Galaxy S8 and is the most ergonomic big screen smartphone today. To make a long story short, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ is the smartphone to buy if big screen and attractive looks are your priorities.

Google Pixel XL

After partnering with multiple phone makers over the years, Google has finally produced a smartphone which is made by Google through and through. Right from the software of the phone to the design, everything is done by Google. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 powered device is easily the best Android smartphone you can buy today. It offers a very familiar design and a superb 2K display. Google has also incorporated a brilliant camera on the phone which can easily stand against the likes of Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and even the iPhone 7. If 5.5-inch is too large for you to handle, you can go for the 5-inch Google Pixel.

OnePlus 5

All things considered, the OnePlus 5 is a great smartphone, and it’s even better as an Android phone. In fact, it’s the fastest Android smartphone out there today. For Android lovers, and especially the enthusiasts, the OnePlus 5 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.

LG G6

LG didn’t change a whole lot between the LG G5 and LG G6, which is why this flagship remains behind the OnePlus 3T. However, the LG G6 does follow the newer Univisium standard, allowing it to be compact. With the Snapdragon 821 SoC, this is more or less as powerful as the LG G5 and it has the same wide angle dual-camera setup on the back. Using the same sensors on both cameras, LG was able to allow seamless zoom this time, and the overall camera quality is great. The LG G6 is a decent flagship, one that ticks most of the right boxes.

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.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

When it comes to update records, Sony is one of the best in the business. That, a 4K display and 960fps slow motion video recording may be all one needs to make a buying decision. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is unique looking smartphone, and while it’s still a little behind other flagships, it’s a phone you can consider.

Honor 8 Pro

The Honor 8 Pro comes with Huawei’s custom UI and chipset, but the phone is still considerably fast and snappy. It also takes good photos through the dual-camera setup and is affordably priced when compared to most other flagships. It’s an Android phone worth considering for sure.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Samsung’ S7 Edge stands tall even after a year and it is still one of the better devices to own, especially after the reduced prices. The Samsung Exynos 8890 SoC powering this phone is a reliable and powerful performer. The AMOLED display is again remarkable and features a 2K resolution. However, the best aspect of the device is the 12MP dual pixel camera, which is still one of the best low light shooters we have tested in the past year.

OnePlus 3T

The OnePlus 3T is not yet outdated and it’s got a long enough life cycle in front of it. The smartphone is one of OnePlus’ best products till date and the combination of the Snapdragon 821 and Oxygen OS work wonders on this smartphone. OnePlus has done a great job optimising camera performance, making the UI bug and lag free, and making an excellent overall flagship. At the price point of Rs. 34,999 (for the 128GB variant), the OnePlus 3T is the most value for money smartphone today, and one of the best Android smartphones too.
