Samsung Galaxy S9+
The Samsung Galaxy S9+ is an extremely powerful smartphone, but unlike the S9, this one’s meant for big screen lovers. It has a 6.2 inch QHD display and Samsung’s AMOLED panels look as good as ever. It carries the same design as the Galaxy S8 and is the most ergonomic big screen smartphone today. To make a long story short, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is the smartphone to buy if big screen and attractive looks are your priorities. All this makes the Samsung Galaxy S9+, the best among all the Android mobile phone in India.
All things considered, the OnePlus 6 is a great smartphone. In fact, it’s the fastest Android smartphone out there today. For Android lovers, and especially the enthusiasts, the OnePlus 6 is a good phone to consider. It has a commendable but not perfect camera, but it will do the job very well. Combined with decent battery life, it makes for a great smartphone.
Google Pixel 2 XL
If pure Android is your OS of choice and money is no bar, the best phone in the market to get is the Google Pixel 2 XL. The Pixel 2 XL may have the same performance as every other flagship Android phone this year, but then Google phone more than makes up for it in the camera department. Both the rear and front facing cameras are superb. The phone also comes with a guaranteed early update to the next Android OS, as soon as it is available.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Samsung has done a lot for Android, and this year it has one of the best Android phones to buy in India so far. The Galaxy Note 8 has an excellent camera, it’s fast and it’s arguably one of the prettiest Android phone out there. It is also the only phone which offers support for a stylus. It’s meant for flagship buyers who don’t want any compromise whatsoever, and if money is no bar, this is the Android phone to buy.
Asus Zenfone 5z
Asus’s flagship for 2018 is criminally underpriced for the hardware and features it offers. For the most part, it is a combination of the powerful hardware of the OnePlus 6 and the AI capabilities of the Honor 10. But the best part about the phone is that it’s priced lower than both the OnePlus 6 and the Honor 10.
Powered by HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC, the 2018 Honor flagship killer is one of the best looking phones we have come across this year. The performance is almost at par with the OnePlus 6, but the Honor 10 gains brownie points in the camera department as well as offering a better battery life. Best of all, the phones comes with Android Oreo out of the box.
Samsung Galaxy S8
The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a great design and is without a doubt the most beautiful smartphone on the market today. It runs on a fast and up to date Exynos 8895 SoC, built on the 10nm process. Samsung has touched up on the camera as well, but it’s largely the same as last time. That, though means that the camera is still amongst the best in the market. Just not better than the Google Pixel (which is also why it’s behind that phone). The Galaxy S8 is the best Android smartphone for those looking for looks above all else.
Moto Z2 Force
The Moto Z2 Force may have been late to the party, but the phone can take a good amount of beating, quite literally. The phone features a shattershield display which means it can withstand normal drops quite easily. The phone is no slouch either as it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and can take on other last year flagships with ease. The battery life is a little less, and the camera also need some work.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2
The Mi Mix 2 is the second iteration of the much loved Mi Mix. The phone is now easier to hold, thanks to the smaller display, but it retains its beautiful bezel-less display. However, The chin at the bottom with the front facing camera is still an annoying compromise. Performance is taken care of by the qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and it is available with 128GB storage, which is plenty. The phone also has a very reliable battery life compared to other flagship smartphones.
Sony Xperia XZ1
Sony’s 2017 flagship may have the same performance as every other flagship in this list, but the phone there are certain compromises which is phone makes. The phone’s dated yet elegant design will appeal to Sony fans, but the smaller battery life and the inconsistent camera may not suit everyone.
