Best Phone 2017: The 10 Top Smartphones

If you’re struggling to work out which best phone 2017 to buy and don’t want to head through our full list of phones, then we’ve brought you a new video, featuring all the top phones of the moment!

Thinking of buying a new phone? We’ve got the best smartphones of the moment all listed here – and with MWC 2017 (the show in Barcelona where many new phones are launched) around the corner, we’ll start seeing 2017’s top phones soon.

We’re pretty sure the Samsung Galaxy S8 won’t be there (we’re thinking March for that one) but the LG G6, new handsets from Nokia and BlackBerry, and something from Sony too.

But if you’re after a top smartphone, here’s the ranking we’ve spent hours whittling down to a top ten, taking into account the power, specs, design and, most importantly, value for money of each handset.

A perfectly palm-friendly phone

Weight: 165g | Dimensions: 156.4 x 76.4 x 7 mm | OS: Android 6 | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1080 x 1920 pixels | CPU: Snapdragon 625 | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 32GB + microSD | Battery: 3510mAh | Rear camera: 16MP | Front camera: 5MP

+ Clever modular accessories
+ Much lower price than many
–  Low spec CPU struggles
–  No waterproofing

Motorola’s got a bit of an underground hit with the Z pair – and now it’s available in the UK properly, the Z Play has knocked the hyper-expensive Google Pixel XL out of the list.

We’re fans of the Z Play thanks to its innovative magnetic clip-on accessories – a simple snap on cover can transform this phone into an impressive standalone camera, music player or even projector.

It looks great and for a low price too – sure, the CPU could be better and the camera doesn’t impress massively, but that drop in spec has been drilled back into the price tag, and this is a very decent phone for the money.

  • What’s next? There’s not a lot of information out around now around the Moto Z Play 2, but we’ve compiled a look at what we’re hoping will be coming to the Moto Z (2017) – and a lot of that will filter down to the new Z Play.
