The Best Smartphones of 2017

2017 has been a busy year for new smartphones entering the market. In this post we’ve rounded up the best of the bunch:

iPhone 7 Plus

It’s inescapable that the iPhone 7 Plus is one of the priciest phones of the year. But also the most popular with a reason! The iPhone 7 Plus comes equipped with a long lasting battery and a dual 12 MP camera. The general build quality and operational speed is vastly improved from previous versions making it in our opinion the best iPhone yet. Make your iPhone 7 Plus stand out even more with unique phone cases. Click here for more details.

Motorola Moto X Force

One of the outstanding features of the Motorola Moto X Force, according to Motorola, is its shatterproof display. In other words, the touchscreen cannot be broken even when you drop it accidentally – music to our ears! This quality smartphone packs a punch with an acclaimed AMOLED display and boasts a long lasting battery, an excellent camera and a fast octa-core processor.


The LG G5 is a radical departure from conventional smartphones. It is built with an interchangeable battery incorporated in a metal unibody allowing you to slide the battery off the body simply by touching a button. The modular design sets it apart from the competition.

The G5 is not to be left behind in terms of speed whereas its graphics are ahead of most of the competition including the Galaxy S7 from Samsung. At 5.3 inches, the display is vibrant enough to silence the harshest critics. In addition, the G5 features a 16 MP camera with an 8 MP lens that has a wide angle view for more creativity.

OnePlus 5

The OnePlus 5 is a flagship model. Just seven months after the launch of the OnePlus 3T, the OnePlus 5 improves on almost every aspect of its predecessors. Bumping the price up to £449 might be stretching its ‘mid-range’ moniker a little, but the OnePlus 5 vastly undercuts those pricier models and offers the same stunning looks, speedy performance and a fantastic camera to boot. Our verdict? This phone wins in durability and overall reliability!

Samsung Galaxy S8

The Galaxy 8 from Samsung is the best phone currently available that uses the Android mobile operating system. This phone has already won awards for its outstanding quality and operating system. Despite it being the priciest smartphone in its class, in our view the Samsung Galaxy S8 is worth every penny.
