The 10 Best Smartphones

From the Samsung Galaxy S8 to the Apple iPhone 8, we rate the best phones you can buy right now

Samsung Galaxy S8

Hands down, the best phone you can buy right now. It's powerful, takes fantastic photos, and is gorgeous. And there's a big one too, if you like that sort of thing.

Google Pixel 2 XL

The Pixel 2 XL puts practicality before panache but delivers where it counts with an incredible camera and the definitive Android experience

OnePlus 5T

The same great performance, same streamlined Android UI, and same funky twin cameras - only now with an 18:9 screen and skinny bezels. Without a price hike to go with it, too

Apple iPhone X

FaceID and a front-filling screen make this the best-looking iPhone ever - even if it'll take a little while to get used to the missing home button

Honor 9

Gorgeous looks, huge power and clever dual cameras make this a real bargain, and it even undercuts the OnePlus 5 on price. It falls behind in a few key areas, but only by a whisker


This glass-backed beauty wants to please with a squeeze - and it takes a great photo, too
