If the Samsung Galaxy S9 and iPhone X had a phone baby, this is it.
The Pixel 3's truly exceptional cameras and AI-powered call screening give it a slight edge on the other great phones in 2018's crowded winners' circle.
Apple's most colorful iPhone X is also its most affordable 2018 model.
The LG V40 ThinQ is one of the best phones of 2018, but wait until Google's Pixel 3 phones arrive before making a decision.
It's a 3.3-inch Android sidekick.
The iPhone XS adds some impressive camera improvements to the already-great iPhone X. But you should seriously wait and see what the lower-priced XR coming in October is like.
The ultrapricey Note 9 is one of the year's best phones. But unless you're in dire need of an upgrade, the smart move is to wait for what the next iPhone, Pixel and even Galaxy S10 bring.
The supersize iPhone XS Max crams a 6.5-inch screen and all of the same great features of the iPhone XS into a Plus-sized body -- but it's not as huge a leap up as you might think.
The Moto G6 is a sublime value, despite its minimal drawbacks.
Samsung's Galaxy S9 Plus is the more robust Galaxy S9, and the one for power users to get.
The Galaxy S9 is a nice incremental upgrade, but its low-light camera isn’t a game-changer and some new features fall far behind the iPhone X. S8 owners can skip, but it's a good upgrade from older Androids.
It’s not overkill, really.
The Pixel 3 XL is pricey for a phone with no expandable memory, but its standout camera and premium hardware make it one of the best phones of the year.
iPhone X remains a winning evolution of the iPhone, but at this point, you’re better off waiting for what Apple has on deck in September.
The Huawei P20 Pro's groundbreaking low-light mode and stunning twilight colour scheme make it a serious contender to Galaxy, iPhone and Pixel phones. Sadly, you can't buy it in the US.
The LG V30 is a rock-solid alternative to Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Plus and the Google Pixel 2 XL. If it fits your hands and your photographic needs, you won't be disappointed.
The iPhone 8 Plus is a great phone with a spectacular camera that offers a lot of what iPhone X has under the hood, but Apple will no doubt release an upgrade later this year.
The OnePlus 6 is an excellent phone and gives you many of the features of more costly flagship phones.
