LOOKING to ditch the iPhone and head for Google’s greener pastures? We’ve rounded up the best Android phones available to buy in the UK today.
Below you’ll find a selection of top phones, ranging from very cheap models to ultra-premium iPhone killers – so there’s something for everyone.
Samsung Galaxy S8 – a true iPhone killer
This is one of Samsung’s most popular phones, and with good reason. It’s got a huge 5.8-inch Quad HD ‘Infinity Display’, and runs on Samsung’s speedy Exynos 8895 chip.
But it’s got a load of great extras too, including Qi wireless charging and a completely waterproof design.
Throw in one of the best smartphone cameras available, and its undeniably worth the £689 price tag – although it’s even cheaper on Amazon.
Google Pixel 2 XL – the ultimate Android phone?
Google created Android, so the company’s new Google Pixel 2 XL is arguably the best possible Android phone you can buy – because it gets all the latest software updates first.
It features a gorgeous 6-inch Quad HD display and Qualcomm’s nippy Snapdragon 835 processor, and offers a host of perks like fast-charging and support for Google’s Daydream VR headset.
With a thin, light, and attractive design, you can’t go wrong with the Google Pixel 2 XL – especially for just £669 at Currys.
Motorola Moto G5 – best budget blower
Not all great phones need to cost the earth, as the impressive Motorola Moto G5 proves.
This cheaper phone comes in at under £200, and boasts a 5-inch Full HD screen and a generous 13-megapixel camera that’ll take Instagram-ready snaps with ease.
Better still, you can pick one up for a paltry £169.99 right now on Amazon, putting more expensive rivals to shame.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – no expense spared
Intended for power users, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has basically ever feature you could want from a phone – and a lofty price tag to match.
There’s a huge 6.3-inch Quad HD display, a dual 12-megapixel camera on the back, and a generous 6GB of RAM that keeps the phone running smoothly.
It’s also bundled with Samsung’s S-Pen stylus, and is up for grabs on Carphone Warehouse for £48 per month – with a £59.99 upfront fee.
OnePlus 5T – a tech geek’s dream
Chinese firm OnePlus has only been around for a few years, but its high-end, low-cost smartphones have already become a huge hit in the UK.
The new OnePlus 5T offers iPhone-rivalling specs, including a 6.01-inch OLED screen, up to 8GB of RAM, and two 12-megapixel cameras on the back.
It’s also powered by the top-end Snapdragon 835 chip, so it’ll run like a dream – not bad for £41 per month with a £9 upfront fee from O2.
LG V30 – perfect for a Netflix binge
LG’s G6 wasn’t a huge hit, but the new LG V30 more than makes up for it.
This gorgeous phone has a super-sharp 6-inch Quad HD OLED display that supports HDR10 videos – that means better colours and contrast for your Netflix sessions.
Tempted? The best deal we’ve spotted is from Carphone Warehouse, getting you the phone for just £32.99 per month, with a £139.99 upfront fee.
It’s also got a dual-lens camera and Bang & Olufsen audio, and comes with a pair of premium B&O earphones in the box.
