2017 has seen some of the best smartphone releases and yet it seems more are to be expected in the coming year 2018. Major companies such as Samsung, LG, and HTC are expected to release more flagship android devices in 2018 which makes it an exciting year to look forward to as well.

In this post, we look at some of the best android smartphones you should consider acquiring in 2018.

Best Android Smartphone 2018: Samsung Galaxy S9

This is a fantastic smartphone released earlier this year, and which comes with several amazing specifications such as a great camera and an impressive body design and build. The phone comes with a metal chassis that is a huge improvement from its predecessors, most notably the Galaxy S5 that still had a plasticky build. Besides, it runs on the latest Lollipop OS and uses a modern Samsung processor to give the phone a swift performance. Samsung S6 has a QHD AMOLED screen with a resolution that is arguably the best on any smartphone today. The major downside, however, is in its relatively poor battery life and its non-removable battery. Overall, the device can be a great acquisition in 2018.

Best Android Smartphone 2018: LG G7

Perhaps one of the best features you’ll get with LG G6 is the excellent camera that rivals some of the best in market such as Galaxy S8, yet costs several hundred dollars less than its closest competition. The device comes with a powerful 16MP primary camera that’s equipped with a laser auto-focus module to give you outstanding shots even in low light. Besides, LG G7 retains the QHD display that its predecessor LG G6 had and offers perfect viewing angles. It runs smoothly on hexa-core Snapdragon 808 chipset with two of its Cortex cores clocking up to speeds of 2.5 GHz. However, a downside of this device is that it offers little to talk about in terms of special features with notable features such as fingerprint sensors and heartbeat monitors all missing in its list of specifications.

Best Android Smartphone 2018: HTC One 11

As has always been the case with a majority of HTC devices, the HTC 11 comes with an excellent design that is every bit luxurious. As such, you’ll notice the sharper and more squared-off edges together with a great finish to make the phone more secure when held at hand. HTC One M11 has a 1080p 5-inch LCD to give you an impressive brightness and color production. The device runs on the latest Snapdragon 810 processor with speeds clocking at about 1.5 GHz. Notable downsides of this device include a not-so-impressive battery and a somehow disappointing camera.

Best Android Smartphone 2018: Google Nexus 8

This is a smartphone that gives a near perfect balance between a great camera, Android M OS support, impressive screen and an excellent design and look. It has a metal back and a 5.7-inch quad HD display. The phone comes with the latest Snapdragon 810 processor and 3GB RAM to give you a seamless performance. Besides, the Google Nexus mounts a 12-megapixel camera and a USB-C rapid charging. Its battery is a little beefy which means it can easily last you a day. A combination of all these powerful features make the Google Nexus 6 another contender for the best android smartphone 2018.


There you have it- a list of the top android smartphones to consider purchasing in the coming year 2018. By comparing the features and weighing upon the pros and cons of each device, you can make your decision and settle for the one that best suits your needs and preferences.
