3. LG G5: Budget perfection

best LG smartphone 2017 is LG G5

LG’s done the impossible with the LG G5, combining a full metal unibody with an interchangeable battery. How has it achieved this feat of technical wizardry? By making the phone modular. It may not be the prettiest phone on this list, but the ability to tap a button and simply slide out the battery gives it a huge advantage over its fixed rivals.

It’s also incredibly quick, and its graphics performance even surpasses the Samsung Galaxy S7. Its 5.3in display is superb as well, and its rear dual cameras give it plenty of flexibility when taking photos. The main 16-megapixel camera is excellent, but its wide-angle 8-megapixel lens is also a really fun addition, giving creative types plenty to get stuck in with.

5.iPhone 8 Plus: Bigger is Better

If you prefer iOS to Android and you fancy picking up the best smartphone around, this should definitely be your first choice… that is, until the iPhone X turns up. Apple has chosen to stick with a similar design to the iPhone 7, swapping the out the all-metal case for a glass back and making it heavier (more premium feeling). There is a glorious new Gold colourway available, and to top it off, the glass casing allows Apple to add wireless charging. The recent S8 design does make the iPhone 8 feel slightly dated now, however.

6. iPhone 7 Plus

The iPhone 7 and its Plus-sized counterpart are the most expensive iPhones yet, but it’s the Plus that makes this list due to its dual 12-megapixel camera. The normal iPhone 7 doesn’t have a dual sensor, and thus misses out on the Plus’ 2x optical zoom feature. It also has better battery life than its little brother, making it more reliable over the course of the day.

Elsewhere, Apple’s made several improvements to the phone’s speed and overall build quality, but it’s not quite as big a leap forward as you might expect from a next-generation smartphone. The iPhone 7 Plus is still the best iPhone ever made, but iPhone 6s owners should probably hang on to their handsets for a while before they upgrade.
