To top the list of the best smartphones in 2018, we have an instant name on the tip of our tongue and that is none other than the very fine and surely the King of smartphones today, Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

After the catastrophic Note 7, our concern was to make sure if or not the Note 8 has the same issues. And to our amazement, luckily, it didn’t. This year, Samsung has vivified its safety and performance by avoiding the last yea’s mistake.


Features

The phone outstands for its dual rear cameras that can capture pretty intense photographs with depth-effect portraits. This feature certainly has a bright future as many people put their major focus on the best camera smartphones. Other than this, its dynamic 6.3″ screen, and tall, and sexy thin body enhance its beauty. Along with an S Pen Stylus with mindboggling efficiencies, you have never seen before.

Some other great features of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 are its top-notch processor, expansive storage, water resistance, and wireless charging.

  • OS: Android 7.1.1 (Nougat), upgradable to Android 8.0 (Oreo)
  • Screen Size: 6.3″
  • Resolution : 1440 x 2960 pixels, 18.5:9 ratio, ~521 ppi density

Apple iPhone X

iphone-x-best-smartphone-2018

The second name on our list of the best smartphones in 2018 (performance-based evolution) is iPhone X. The pros of the phone are its rear camera that captures just as good pictures in the dim light as in bright rooms, and the front camera that is perfect to take selfies in portrait.

The reason why it stood second is the adjustments that iPhone has done with this set like no home button, lesser living battery, and obviously its price.

Its face ID feature has received a serious backlash from the critics and users. Also, you will seriously need a back case to prevent it from any damage and do not forget to take Applecare+ (Its repair costs are too damn high). But at the same time, there are many who have preferred it over other smartphones.




Features

It incorporates some of the great features like a better and faster processor, gorgeous dual rare cameras are its limelight, water resistance, and wireless charging.

  • OS: iOS 11.1.1
  • Screen Size: 5.8″

  • Front Camera: 7 MP (f/2.2)
  • Storage: 64/256 GB

OnePlus 5T proves that not every time the expensive phones are better. It is quite an affordable yet third on our list of the best smartphones in 2018. It’s definitely a treat to its buyers because of its effective functions and reasonable price.

Its screen is bigger and it captures better photographs in low light as compared to 5. Its exclusive hardware and software features, when compared to the price, are the major reason to name it among the best smartphones in 2018. Unlike many other smartphones, it has got better functionality and is still a mid-price range smartphone that anyone can afford easily.


Features

Many of the specifications are similar to the 5 but it outstands 5s on its better camera, face unlock, and a bigger screen. If you already own a 5 then it won’t be a much of a delight. But if you are looking for a better chance to switch your previous phone (that is not 5) then it will be a treat for you.

Motorola Moto G5 and G5 Plus

The camera and video maker are their undeniable strength along with their long-lasting battery. Both have almost similar features and that is why we have placed them in one heading. However, G5 has a little smaller screen, half storage, and a bit weak processor.

Razer Phone

razer-phone-best-smartphone-in-2018

Razer Phone has its own charms and perks that got us to list it in the best smartphones to buy in 2018. It is by far the most responsive and smoothies phone out of the best android phones.

It outshines every good smartphone because of its easiness, performance, user-friendliness, and responsiveness when playing games. However, it lacks the camera that is capable of capturing good photographs in low light.


Features

As per CNET review, “The Razer Phone is a glimpse into the future.” And we totally agree with them. The phone has the fastest and smoothest user interface. The screen is designed in a way that it can show various pages and apps, all rapid and smooth, without getting hanged or paused. And this phone is the pioneer when it comes to its feature offering a 120Hz screen that is most of the time half or even lesser in other smartphones.

  • Screen Size: 5.7″

XZ premium outstands in its ability to shoot 960 frames/second. If you are a lover of making slow-mo videos then XZ Premium is a treat for you, right there.
