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 5

Not quite the bargain we're used to getting this year, but a much-improved camera and streamlined design make up for it

Apple iPhone 8 Plus

The best iPhone camera ever, wireless charging and new-found AR smarts make this Apple's best phone yet - until the X arrives, anyway

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

Huawei P10 Plus

Stylish and speedy, with a superb camera, the P10 Plus doesn't dazzle with its design but is otherwise a genuine contender, thanks to better battery life than its smaller brother
