The Best Android Phones – October 2018

Posted by William Sattelberg on October 16, 2018

The last four years have seen Android mature from a platform with a lot of promise to an operating system where both the hardware and software have seemingly finally managed to combine to create some incredible experiences. From Samsung’s revolutionary and refined hardware to Motorola’s investment into their modular Moto Mods, phones have become incredible technical feats. Throughout 2015 and 2016, we saw Android phones become more powerful than ever before, and 2017 found that raw power backed with an all-new design trend for phones: minimized bezels. The designs of phones and displays have reached new heights, and nearly every phone last year was an excellent choice for day to day use.

But unfortunately for consumers, if every phone is good, choosing a phone inside the Verizon or AT&T store, inside your local Best Buy, or online through Amazon can be an increasingly difficult decision. That’s where we come in—we’ve looked at nearly every smartphone on the market today, from last year’s flagships to this year’s brand new devices, and have decided which ones are actually worth buying We’ve judged each phone on its design, its features, build quality, specs, the quality of the camera, and even the software included in your purchase, to help you decide which device is right for you. After all, when you purchase a new smartphone, you aren’t just signing up for a new phone—you’re buying a camera, a GPS, a mobile theater, and so much more. Our phones help us each day to keep track of reminders, find our way home, and to stay in contact with friends, so if you’re going to drop up to $1,000 on a device, you’ll want to make sure it covers every feature you could ever want.

With all that said, let’s take a look at what 2018 has to offer in terms of Android phones. From phones first released this past spring to critical acclaim, to brand-new handsets added to carrier shelves just this past month, we have recommendations for anyone looking for a quality flagship Android device in 2018. Here’s our full buyer’s guide at the best Android phones you can buy today.
