Best Android phones 2018 – these are the top iPhone alternatives you can buy today

LOOKING to ditch the iPhone and head for Google’s greener pastures? We’ve rounded up the best Android phones available to buy in the UK today.

Below you’ll find a selection of top phones, ranging from very cheap models to ultra-premium iPhone killers – so there’s something for everyone.

Samsung Galaxy S8 – a true iPhone killer

This is one of Samsung’s most popular phones, and with good reason. It’s got a huge 5.8-inch Quad HD ‘Infinity Display’, and runs on Samsung’s speedy Exynos 8895 chip.

But it’s got a load of great extras too, including Qi wireless charging and a completely waterproof design.

Throw in one of the best smartphone cameras available, and its undeniably worth the £689 price tag – although it’s even cheaper on Amazon.

Google Pixel 2 XL – the ultimate Android phone?

Google created Android, so the company’s new Google Pixel 2 XL is arguably the best possible Android phone you can buy – because it gets all the latest software updates first.

It features a gorgeous 6-inch Quad HD display and Qualcomm’s nippy Snapdragon 835 processor, and offers a host of perks like fast-charging and support for Google’s Daydream VR headset.

With a thin, light, and attractive design, you can’t go wrong with the Google Pixel 2 XL – especially for just £669 at Currys.

Motorola Moto G5 – best budget blower

Not all great phones need to cost the earth, as the impressive Motorola Moto G5 proves.

This cheaper phone comes in at under £200, and boasts a 5-inch Full HD screen and a generous 13-megapixel camera that’ll take Instagram-ready snaps with ease.

Better still, you can pick one up for a paltry £169.99 right now on Amazon, putting more expensive rivals to shame.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – no expense spared

Intended for power users, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has basically ever feature you could want from a phone – and a lofty price tag to match.

There’s a huge 6.3-inch Quad HD display, a dual 12-megapixel camera on the back, and a generous 6GB of RAM that keeps the phone running smoothly.

It’s also bundled with Samsung’s S-Pen stylus, and is up for grabs on Carphone Warehouse for £48 per month – with a £59.99 upfront fee.

OnePlus 5T – a tech geek’s dream

Chinese firm OnePlus has only been around for a few years, but its high-end, low-cost smartphones have already become a huge hit in the UK.

The new OnePlus 5T offers iPhone-rivalling specs, including a 6.01-inch OLED screen, up to 8GB of RAM, and two 12-megapixel cameras on the back.

It’s also powered by the top-end Snapdragon 835 chip, so it’ll run like a dream – not bad for £41 per month with a £9 upfront fee from O2.

LG V30 – perfect for a Netflix binge

LG’s G6 wasn’t a huge hit, but the new LG V30 more than makes up for it.

This gorgeous phone has a super-sharp 6-inch Quad HD OLED display that supports HDR10 videos – that means better colours and contrast for your Netflix sessions.

Tempted? The best deal we’ve spotted is from Carphone Warehouse, getting you the phone for just £32.99 per month, with a £139.99 upfront fee.

It’s also got a dual-lens camera and Bang & Olufsen audio, and comes with a pair of premium B&O earphones in the box.
