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 settle for the 5-inch Google Pixel.

OnePlus 5

The OnePlus 5 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.

HTC U11

If you are looking for a flagship smartphone, which not only looks different but has top notch performance as well, then HTC U11 is the phone to pick. HTC carries over the same distinct and rather polarizing design of the HTC U Ultra and combines it with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. HTC has been generous enough to provide 6GB of RAM on the device along with 128GB of storage. However, the best part of the phone is the rear 12MP camera, which captures some really high quality images.
