Best cheap phone: head here if you need a device under £200

1. Samsung Galaxy S8

Biometrics aside, this is the best Android phone

Weight: 155g | Dimensions: 148.9 x 68.1 x 8mm | OS: Android 7 | Screen size: 5.8-inch | Resolution: 1440 x 2960 | CPU: Exynos 8895 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | Battery: 3000mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 8MP

Amazing display
Huge power
High price
Irritating biometric unlocking
Samsung has once again taken the top spot of the best Android phone in the world right now.

Samsung’s latest Galaxy S8 is in the top position of this list thanks to an incredible design, amazing display and some truly great power packed into the phone.

Everything that has made Samsung phones great over the last few years has been packed into this 5.8-inch device – that’s almost bezeless too – and comes with top of the range hardware and some easy to use Android software.

There’s a new iris scanner to allow you to unlock the phone with just your eyes and Samsung has also included a new voice assistant called Bixby. It’s not the perfect device some had hoped for, but it’s the best Android phone you can buy at the moment.

Also consider: If you budget can’t quite stretch to the new Galaxy S8, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is still an excellent option with a strong screen and excellent camera, plus it’s now cheaper thanks to the arrival of the S8.

 

2. OnePlus 5

A genuine flagship killer

Android Mobile

Weight: 153g | Dimensions: 154.2 x 74.1 x 7.3 mm | OS: Android 7.1 Nougat | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1080 x 1920 | CPU: Snapdragon 835 | RAM: 6GB/8GB | Storage: 64GB/128GB | Battery: 3300mAh | Rear camera: 20MP + 16MP | Front camera: 16MP

Super-slick performance
Affordable price
Not water resistant
Still ‘only’ 1080p display
For some, the OnePlus 5 is the best Android phone around – and to be fair, they have a point. The Chinese firm has improved on 2016’s OnePlus 3 and 3T to deliver a slicker design, dual-cameras round the back and a whole heap of power.

The AMOLED display is bright and vibrant, despite still ‘only’ being 1080p, and the fingerprint scanner is fast.

The lack of a microSD card, and a battery which doesn’t last more than a day may put some off, but considering the price you’re paying the OnePlus 5 is fantastic value for money.

Also consider: Low-cost flagship smartphones are getting better and better, and if the OnePlus 5 doesn’t tickle your fancy the Honor 8 Pro might. If offers excellent value for money with a premium build and a great display.

 

3. Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus

Samsung now owns second place as well

Weight: 173g | Dimensions: 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1mm | OS: Android 7 | Screen size: 6.2-inch | Resolution: 1440 x 2960 | CPU: Exynos 8895 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | Battery: 3,500mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 8MP

Best display on the market
Speedy performance
Very expensive
Flawed fingerprint sensor
Second place goes to the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. We’ve loved both the Galaxy S6 Edge and the Galaxy S7 Edge, but this year we prefer the smaller device of the flagship pairing.

 

Android Mobile The size of the Galaxy S8 Plus may put some people off at 6.2-inches, but we found the device easy to use and the main reason the Plus sits in second place is its higher price.

Everything we love about the Galaxy S8 is available here as Samsung has decided to only really changed the sizes of the screens rather than fiddling with the spec inside the device.

That same powerful 12MP camera and top of the range power setup is here to do everything you want it to as well as the new biometric tech that may allow you to unlock your phone faster than ever before.

Also consider: Looking for a big screen Android phone? Then say hello to the HTC U Ultra. It won’t be for everyone, but for those who want something a bit different the large 5.7-inch QHD display, punchy performance and solid camera will suit.

 

4. Moto Z

Modular and the world’s thinnest

Weight: 136g | Dimensions: 153.3 x 75.3 x 5.2 mm | OS: Android Marshmallow | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1440 x 2560 | CPU: Snapdragon 820 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 32/64GB | Battery: 2600mAh | Rear camera: 13MP | Front camera: 5MP

Creative modular accessories
Fingerprint sensor with a twist
No 3.5mm headphone jack
Big camera bump
The Moto Z is modular like the LG G5, but it’s far better with extra add-ons and a much easier to use snap-on design.

It’s powerful and the modular design means you’ll be able to switch out elements for future accessories and could mean you can keep this phone for much longer than other devices that will date quicker.

Usually when we talk about mid-cycle upgrades, we’re strictly talking about new software. Moto Z could take on new form at any time.

It may be the world’s thinnest phone, but that comes at a cost with a reduction in battery size and the loss of the headphone jack – potential issues for some users. If you can overlook these shortcomings though you’ll have a truly innovative device in your hands.

Also consider: Surprised not to see the LG G6 in our top ten? Well you can read our reasoning here – but it’s still worth considering. It’s 5.7-inch QHD display is bigger than the Moto Z’s 5.5-inch offering, plus its water-resistant body is handy. It sure is pricey though.

 

5. Sony Xperia XZ Premium

The perfect phone for 4K fanatics

Weight: 195g | Dimensions: 156 x 77 x 7.9mm | OS: Android 7 Nougat | Screen size: 5.46-inch | Resolution: 3840 x 2160 | CPU: Snapdragon 835 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | Battery: 3230mAh | Rear camera: 19MP | Front camera: 13MP

4K display is stunning
Solid battery life
Design isn’t the most premium
Fiddly SIM tray
The Xperia XZ Premium is the flagship smartphone Sony fans have been waiting for, bringing together an eye-popping display, strong snapper and solid battery life.

Those who love watching films and TV shows in 4K can do so on the move with the 4K screen on the XZ Premium – no other phone on this list can boast that – while the front-facing dual speakers also enhance videos and gaming.

If there’s an area the XZ Premium does lack in, it’s design. The flat glass front and rear are sleek, but the plastic edges of the phone detract from the ‘Premium’ part of the name.Edge Sense is half-baked

Make no mistake though, this is a proper, fully-loaded Android flagship which easily holds its own against the competition.

Also consider: If you fancy something a little smaller, and a little more wallet friendly, then check out the Sony Xperia XZ. As the name suggests, it lives in the same family as the XZ Premium, but has a smaller 5.2-inch full HD display and older Snapdragon 820 chipset.
HTC 10

6. HTC U11

A wildly impressive phone – in a sea of wildly impressive phones

Weight: 169g | Dimensions: 153.9 x 75.9 x 7.9mm | OS: Android 7.1 Nougat | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1440 x 2560 | CPU: Snapdragon 835 | RAM: 4GB/6GB | Storage: 64GB/128GB | Battery: 3000mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 16MP

Android Mobile

Great camera
Excellent audio performance
Edge Sense is half-baked
Screen slightly dim
HTC squeezes itself into sixth place on our best Android phone list with the gorgeous HTC U11.

It has a 5.5-inch 2K display, which makes watching video gorgeous, strength under-the-hood with 4GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, and squeezable sides (yes, really!) allowing you to quick launch apps.

The camera technology is still a big focus for HTC though. A 12MP sensor may not sound like much, but it makes some gorgeous images on the back and there’s a 16MP front-facing camera to capture your selfies too.
