8) Samsung Galaxy S8
A sleek design that’s stood the test of time.
You might be wondering what the S8 is doing on this list. Well, the truth is, this 2017 model is still topping our charts. When it launched, the new design of the phone was pretty radical, along with the 3D glass display.
Boasting a larger screen than the iPhone 7 Plus, but on a smaller body, the flawless looking phone has a minimal look with a whole load of style. It was ahead of the game then and it’s still leading the way now.
All in all, it’s a fantastic smartphone at a decent price point. The fingerprint scanner sits on the back of the device. There’s also a facial recognition feature that uses an iris scanner to unlock the device too. Plus, it’s packing Samsung’s unmistakable interface as well as a 10nm processor and IP68 rating, which makes it a fairly powerful beast.
7) iPhone 8
A premium Apple product that ticks almost every box.
Since the iPhone 8 was unveiled at the same time as iPhone X, many of you may have overlooked it. Well, you shouldn’t have. This is a serious iPhone and one that is a natural progression from the likes of the 6 and 7. It’s all been leading to this.
To the naked eye, iPhone 8 may look strikingly similar to the iPhone 7. We hear ya! But why mess with a classic look? While the design of the phone hasn’t changed that much, it is available in different colour options. It comes in Gold, Silver, and Space Grey.
It’s more powerful too. It also has the A11 Bionic chip with 64-bit architecture and M11 motion coprocessor, which is a step up from previous models.
If you’re looking for your next iPhone, but don’t have the cash to splash on the top-of-the-range iPhone X, the 8 is the perfect one for you. You won’t be disappointed.
