8 Best Android Phones for 2018

For the last few years, Android is releasing increasingly impressive and affordable Google phones. 2018 too is not an exception. This year has already received several mid-range phones that are great to look at. These include the hit trio of Xperia L2, XA2 and XA2 Ultra by Sony, and Galaxy A8 by Samsung. Plus, in the coming MWC, some more promising pieces are expected to be seen like Sony Xperia XZ Pro, Nokia 9, Samsung Galaxy S9 and Blackberry KeyOne 2.

So, even if you are a loyal fan of Apple or are looking for a remarkably good phone to make an upgrade, you can consider an Android phone as your next buy. To make your job easy to choose from a plethora of the upcoming superb 3G Android phones, here’s a list of some top Android phones of 2018.

1. Huawei Mate 10 Pro

Huawei phones have shown a dramatic improvement in the last few years and the Mate 10 Pro can be considered as a peak of the improvement. Mate 10 Pro is a great flagship with 6.0-inch OLED screen, 6GB RAM, EMUI and Android Oreo, 128GB storage and a superb camera. However, Huawei software is disappointing, even with a great focus on AI intelligence. A major part of this AI power is due to the Kirin 970 CPU, the most efficient and fastest chip of Huawei yet.

The rear camera with its f/1.7 aperture is capable of taking fantastic low-light images and you can alter your shots with the camera app that offers several modes. The camera also allows shooting in pure monochrome for the fans of the retro look.

This phone lacks a headphone jack so you will need to use the included USB-C headphones or dongle. The phone is rated IP67 for water resistance.

2. OnePlus 5T

With its superb features like 6.01-inch OLED screen, 2 x 12-megapixel f/1.7 cameras, Face Unlock, 64/128GB storage and 6/8GB RAM and Snapdragon 835, OnePlus 5T supersedes the mid-2017 flagship of OnePlus, OnePlus 5. So, though owners of OnePlus 5 would be annoyed with this, others will be delighted to have a potentially great device with its gorgeous display and plenty of storage. The rear camera is a remarkable feature and has a better ability to capture images in the dark, due to its new 20-megapixel low-light sensor.

3. Razer Phone

With 8GB RAM, 5.5-inch 1080p 120Hz screen, 12-megapixel camera and Snapdragon 835, the first smartphone by Razer has arrived and the company has described it as “the first phone made by gamers for gamers” and is very close to the Android Noughat’s untouched version; there will be a guaranteed Oreo update for Q1 in 2018.

The handset runs a superb version of Nova Launcher Prime and is delightfully devoid of bloatware and the small changes the company has made are only beneficial to the device.

Prominent highlights are enhanced screen setting options built to help you get benefited by the super-swish refresh rate display of the Razer Phone and a booster mode that enables you to speed up the frame rate for particular apps.

In addition to this, the premium-quality speakers and super-slick hardware of Razer Phone make this one of the most desired Android phones available this year.

4. HTC U11+

With 6-inch quad-HD+ LCD display, 3930mAh battery, USB-C and 12-megapixel “UltraPixel” camera with OIS, the U11+ is a smarter version of the older U11 by HTC. It has a larger battery, an improved screen, a refined, almost-bezel-less design and the latest Android 8.0 Oreo software, and so, is a great choice if you are looking for an upgrade.

Another remarkable feature is its skin which is one of the cleanest you may find today. The Sense skin by HTC has long been a favorite of many, courtesy to HTC’s logical decision to avoid packing it with any duplicate apps. The end product is a user interface that, apart from the inclusion of the Blinkfeed notification service by HTC, is as similar to native Android as found on a device that isn’t included in Google’s own Pixel range.

To this, if you add the Hi-Res Audio support and fantastically clear omnidirectional microphones , U11+ will rightly earn a rank as one of the best Android phones available today.

5. Samsung Galaxy Note 8

With a generous 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 835, dual 12-megapixel camera, 64GB and microSD expansion and 6.3-inch quad-HD screen Note 8 is thankfully more promising for Samsung after the failure of Note 7. The secondary telephone camera with a portrait mode and zoomed shots is a big update in addition to which there is the helpful S Pen for notes and doodling.

It also has an outstanding Infinity Display, a fast processor and the best software characteristic to Samsung.

6. LG V30

Finally a great flagship phone has been brought by LG in the form of V30 which is devoid of leather-clad blacks and silly gimmicks of the last year.

The device looks outstanding with its 6-inch 18:9 quad-HD OLED screen. Inside is 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, Snapdragon 835 and a large battery. Just like the G6, this phone has two rear cameras, one is standard 16-megapixel sensor and the other takes wide-angle shots, perfect for landscapes. The camera also offers great video recording options.

7. Huawei P10 Plus

Making continuous improvement, Huawei has brought its best phone yet. Looking a lot like iPhone 7, P10 is indeed a very good-looking device with 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage, 12mp Leica camera, microSD expansion and 5.7-inch quad-HD screen.

Featuring a fast Kirin 960 CPU, P10 features two cameras at the back boasting of f/1.7 aperture and 12 megapixels. There is a front-facing 8mp selfie shooter too in a smart wide mode that can fit your entire group in the frame. The 3750mAh battery will easily get you across the day.

8. Samsung Galaxy S8

This is perhaps the best phone you can purchase at the moment. The stunning phone has a wonderful HDR quad-HD+ 5.8-inch screen with near-no-bezel surround and a sleek glass and metal design that’s perfectly curvy.

It’s super-fast and has useful features like Qi wireless charging, a microSD card slot and an IP68 water resistance rating.

The 12mp camera lacks dual lenses but still is one of the best out there. Plus the 3000mAh battery is superb; however, you may need to charge it every night.

I am sure some or the other of these phones has won your heart! Have you decided which one to buy?
