OnePlus 6

The OnePlus 6 is without a doubt the fastest Android smartphone on the market today. However, it’s not quite the “flagship killer” that the company has been known for. OnePlus’ dual-camera algorithms aren’t quite flagship class, but the phone still has a great camera. It’s one of the best Android phones out there, and one that’s meant for people who want a fast Android phone, but don’t care about the peripheral gimmicks.

Honor 10

AI is the most used buzzword right now and the Honor 10 leaves no stone unturned in touting its AI-centric features. And for good reason, because the Kirin 970 chipset that powers it has a dedicated NPU that takes care of machine learning tasks. The phone is all-rounder with a stunning glass design and a AI-powered camera. If only the UI was a little more palatable.
