Samsung Galaxy Note8

With a class-leading camera, a fun and intuitive stylus, and outstanding all-around performance, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is one of the best smartphones we've ever tested, and one of the best Android phones money can buy.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus

Yes, it lacks a headphone jack, but the iPhone 7 Plus is also one of the best smartphones we've tested to date. Both its battery and its camera post some of the most impressive results we've ever seen, and it's even sealed up for water resistance. It won't come cheap, but if you're considering a premium, extra-large smartphone, the iPhone 7 Plus is in a class all its own.

Apple iPhone 8 Plus

Between its lavish design, its long-lasting battery, and its sensational dual-camera experience, the iPhone 8 Plus is one of the best big-screened smartphones money can buy. It's not as big of a step-up from its predecessor as the iPhone 7 Plus was from the 6s Plus, but if you're in the market for an upgrade, the 8 Plus is one of the best in the game—assuming you're not willing to pay more for the iPhone X.

Google Pixel

The Pixel has Google's fingerprints all over it; from the integration of Google Assistant to the architecture of the software, everything about this phone is confident and streamlined, like most of Google's efforts. The camera sits at the top of its class, its battery life is superb, and its quite possibly the fastest phone we've ever tested. At last, Samsung has competition for the best Android smartphone out there.
