Brief Review:

Moto Z2 Force is the next flagship from Motorola which is launched in India on 15th February 2018. This phone comes with various unique features and tries to place itself in an altogether different segment.

On the design front, this phone comes with a unibody metal design(7000 series of Aluminium) which makes it very strong and durable. The display in a Quad HD Display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 Pixels which has vibrant colours and excellent viewing angles. The unique thing about the Z2 force is that the screen in shatterproof and comes with 4 layers of strength and 4 years of shatterproof warranty. (The scratches and other damage due to water are not covered.)

This sleek flagship smartphone is powered by Snapdragon 835 which was the best processor of 2017 and was seen in smartphones like OnePlus 5T. It captures a massive Antutu Score of 180800. This combined with 6GB of RAM makes it a multitasking beast and you won't ever face any lag whatsoever. It has an internal memory of 64GB which can be expanded up to 2TB with a hybrid sim(2 Sim or 1 Sim and 1 MicroSD).

The Moto Z2 Force comes with a Dual rear camera setup which combines a 12MP RGB Sensor and 12MP Monochrome sensor with a Dual-LED Dual-Tone Flash. The camera setup is used to provide a bokeh/depth effect. The images are sharp which look beautiful but sometimes the colors of the flowers or bright colors might look artificial. It supports various modes like selective focus, selective black and white which does the task well. The front camera has a 5 MP sensor and will not disappoint you with its performance.

In the daylight, the camera works very well and produces great saturation and colour reproduction to make the image look perfectly original. The Shutter speed is simply insane with almost no time between the touch and capture of the image. The camera though is not the best in the low light conditions with some scope of improvements as the images are not so sharp. In the video department, the phone supports up to 4K video Recording.

The software experience with the Moto Z2 Force is just brilliant as you get a very close Stock Android UI with very minimum bloatware. The UI is clean, smooth and easy to use. It runs on Latest Android Oreo and you would surely love the user experience the Motorola family brings. The fingerprint sensor is on the front and is very accurate and fast. the sensor can be alternatively used to turn the phone into sleep mode and wake up along with the support of swipe gestures.

This Z2 Force has a very sleek body and is super lightweight, due to which it takes a cut on the battery which has a capacity of 2750 mAh, just enough to support a day for normal usage. It comes with a fast charger of 15W and should be able to completely charge the phone in an hour. While the inbuilt battery is not big, the phone support Moto Mods, which are simply awesome, it takes your experience to a completely different level. The phone has a TurboPower Mod in the box which can be charged independently and support 6220mAh of battery life, so it comes to your rescue whenever you are running out of battery. Motorola also has other mods like Gaming Mod, Camera Mod which can be bought separately but you will love them if you are gaming or camera geek.

Z2 Force misses on the 3.5mm headphone jack and comes bundled with a 3.5mm jack to USB Type C Converter and a headphone. It is resistant to water droplet but is not resistance to water if it falls into the pool. It does not have any IP rating so be careful with Dust and water splash.

So Overall, this phone is a beast in terms of performance with some new features of mods not seen in any other smartphones yer but if you look to explore more smartphones in this price range, do check out OnePlus 5T and Honor View 10.

Strong build quality, Shatterproof Screen, Smooth Multitasking, Dual Camera Setup makes it one of the best flagship phones in India.

Brief Review:

Huawei has been quite the underdog in India, over the past few years but has been not slowed down on their approach by getting more affordable and value for money smartphones, the Indian population lives. Honor View 10 is another significant smartphone by Huawei following that approach. Huawei launched Honor View 10 in November 2017 and Its a real delight. It is going to be available in India as Amazon exclusive from 8th Jan 2018.

Honor View 10 features a metal unibody design, with a big 6-inch, Full HD+ display at 18:9 aspect ratio and resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels, summing up a pixel density of 403 PPI. The display is an LTPS LCD, truly gorgeous. With that 2017- style edge to edge display, the overall design of the smartphone is no less than stunning

Let’s talk about power, Honor View 10 packs a mean punch with HiSilicon Kirin 970 powering the device, It is not a Snapdragon and we miss it too, but Kirin 970 is another face of true power, Huawei’s homegrown Kirin 970 is a true flagship grade SoC with an eye towards AI as future. Kirin 970 is an octa-core SoC with 4x2.4 GHz Cortex-A73 and 4x1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 cores. For handling the graphics workloads, Kirin 970 packs an impressive Mali G72 MP 12 as GPU, and It exudes serious power.

The performance is flagship grade, as these are the same internals as Huawei’s current flagships. You won’t observe stutters or lags anywhere, Kirin 970 just kicks every load you can put on it out of the ground. In Antutu benchmarks, View 10 scores around 175000 which is similar to the score of Snapdragon 835. On Geekbench, you will see single core benchmark score of around 1900 and multi-core score of around 6700.

This performer is stacked with a giant 6GB of RAM to make multitasking, a cake walk. The Honor View 10 has 128GB of onboard storage, which is comfortable enough for most users. You do get the freedom of expansion via MicroSD up to 256GB. But it is a hybrid sim slot so you cannot use 2 sim cards with a MicroSD.

Honor View 10 looks robust on the cameras as well with a dual camera setup, the first sensor being a 16MP, f/1.8 and a second 20MP monochrome sensor, coupled with a single-tone LED flash. The camera has great low-light capabilities and depth sensing, all thanks to that second monochrome sensor.

Huawei is pushing hard on AI, even with smartphone photography as the image processing involves a lot of machine learning behind the scenes resulting in clearer, sharper and ultimately better. Much like Google’s efforts with Pixel 2, Huawei is using AI for better depth sensing and portrait shots. The colors are good, the depth effect is decent too.

While It's no closer to the likes of Pixel 2, It tops the camera quality from other offerings in the budget like the much loved OnePlus 5T. On the front, there’s a 13MP, f/2.0 sensor that also produces impressive results. The low-light performance isn’t top notch but good enough in most situations. The front camera isn't a dual camera setup but still, it can take nice portrait mode pictures.

Huawei tries to attract all the audience that loves software, with Honor View 10 being powered by Android 8.0 Oreo, out of the box. But that’s the only thing about software Huawei can boast about. The custom skin by Huawei, called EMUI is no closer to stock and is a lot of clutter and load. It is neither minimalistic nor zappy. Although, EMUI 8.0 is a big stride over the previous editions of Huawei’s custom ROM. Overall the software experience isn’t very pleasing and often feels like an obstruction to efficiency. If you are a fan of minimalism and stock Android, Honor View 10 isn’t going to delight you a lot.

The Honor View 10 packs a decent 3750mAH battery and is capable enough to pull you through the day, with heavy usage you might need a charger or a power bank after 5-6 hours. There’s is fast charging available which can charge your device from 0 to 58% in just 30 minutes. 

If you are wondering whether there is an IP rating for Honor View 10 then you are going to be disappointed. The View 10 is not waterproof or dustproof. Plus, there is no wireless charging as well. Honor should have included these features if they want to compete with true flagship devices.

The Honor View 10 also sports a fingerprint sensor at the front, just where you like it, making a smartphone a bit bigger in comparison to the likes of OnePlus 5T. It also has a face unlock feature but is for namesake as of now, and seriously needs a software boost to be usable.

The Huawei Honor View 10 is priced at Rs. 29,999 and is set to go on sale January 8, 2018, exclusively on Amazon. At the price, Its a good competitor to OnePlus 5T and the Samsung A9. The device impresses with flagship-level performance and features at an aggressive pricing by Huawei.

Solid Build Quality, Flagship Grade Hardware, Good Camera Performance, Smooth Multi-tasking makes it one of the best flagship phones in India.

Brief Review:

OnePlus after about 5 months of the launch of OnePlus 5 has launched the most anticipated smartphone ever, OnePlus 5T. The company has basically upgraded the OnePlus 5 making it suite the current market demand while keeping the price same as that of OnePlus 5.

OnePlus 5T comes with a 6-inch bezel-less display, the screen is a Samsung AMOLED panel with a 2.5D Corning Gorilla glass protection. The colours are vibrant and the screen is bright with a resolution 1080p and 401-pixel density. The hold and grip on OnPlus 5T in hand are smooth and the phone looks perfectly stunning, though it might take a few days for a new user to adjust on the 6-inch screen.

The processor in OnePlus 5T is an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, same as that in OnePlus 5 which is on the expected lines, as nothing exceeds Snapdragon 835 in the market right now. The Antutu benchmark score of One Plus 5T is around 1,70,000 indicating a very strong performance.

Coming to the Camera performance of OnePlus 5T, it comes with a dual camera rear sensor which is a combination of 16MP Main camera and 20MP Secondary camera. This in terms of number, looks same as that of OnePlus 5, but the 20MP sensor has been upgraded to have a f/1.7 aperture in a bid to improve the low lighting shots from the phone. The front camera of OnePlus 5T is a 16MP sensor, which is exactly the same as that of OnePlus 5. Overall, the OnePlus 5 had an exceptional camera performance in both front and rear camera, but with slight upgradation of the rear camera aperture, OnePlus 5T is also set to click excellent photos in the low lighting conditions.

Commenting on the Gaming performance of OnePlus 5T, it delivers a true flagship performance, with no heating or lag issues observed in our initial testing. With such strong processor and abundant RAM, this cannot go wrong and comes down to the efficiency of the phone, which OnePlus has been really good at.

OnePlus 5T as similar to OnePlus 5, comes in 2 variants. One with 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage priced at 32999, and the second with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage priced at 37999. As per the requirement of your internal memory, the user can choose the variant, while both 6GB and 8GB of RAM should be sufficient for any level of multitasking. Since the screen has been upgraded to a bezel-less display, there is no space on the front to fit the fingerprint sensor and has been moved to the back, it is both accurate and quick, no sluggishness was observed.

OnePlus 5T also comes with 'Face Unlocking', which uses the front camera to puts more than 100 facial spots, but this is not a secure method and is nowhere close to the face unlocking mechanism in iPhone X. This method of using face unlocking just with the use of front camera can be fooled using a picture and also with OnePlus 5T, it is not possible to use the Face Unlocking in the dark because of lack on additional hardware. Face Unlocking on OnePlus 5T  is convenient and fast but is not foolproof. Read about how FaceID works on Apple iPhone X.

The battery size of OnePlus 5T is 3300mAH, which can give a day backup with normal usage, with 6 inches of screen, we are excited to see it lasting for a day. The phone comes with proprietary dash charging which is capable of charging from 0 to 100 percent in just an hour. OnePlus feels that the market for wireless charging is yet to be matured and it restricts the users rather than making them free as the phone cannot be used to play games or call while charging.

OnePlus 5T comes with a very clean Oxygen OS which is based on Android 7.1.1 but OnePlus has promised an upgrade to Android 8.0 (Oreo) by next year beginning and a beta build by end of 2017.

The only disappointment here is that the phone is not waterproof or dustproof, basically, there is no IP rating, it is neither IP67 nor IP68 certified. We feel that IP certification is important in a phone ranged 30k, we even saw IP68 certification on a phone like Moto X4 in the range of 20K. check out more about IP ratings and certifications.

OnePlus phones have always been a great deal, with OnePlus 5T also following be the trend. With the latest technology, great design, improved camera and perfect build quality make OnePlus 5T a perfect budget flagship phone.

Dual Camera Setup, Smooth Multitasking, Vibrant Display, Good Battery Backup makes it one of the best flagship phones in India.

Brief Review:

Well, Google’s into hardware and It's going super strong, which is quite reflective of this Android-flagship-redefined smartphone by Google. Pixel 2 XL device is an absolute love, nothing in the Android world comes close to it. Even after lots of controversies and issues, this smartphone sets a new benchmark for the Android world and we are loving it. Google launched Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL at its October 4, 2017, Event.

Pixel 2 XL continues on the design of Pixel with a myriad of changes, yet the device feels so radically different and familiar at the same time. Google’s best features a sturdy metal build with rubberised polish on back making it easier to hold and feels nice in hand. It has an edge to edge full 6-inch display at a resolution of 1440 pixels by 2880 pixels at a PPI of 538 pixels per inch. We are no fan of the carnival oversaturation on Samsung displays, but this one is more soothing and natural, some might say it dull but it's very subjective and depends on person to person. Apart from that, the POLED panel has got a lot of controversies in its name for a lot of issues including burn ins in just a week. A lot of these issues are serious from a company like Google and some of them could be fixed by software, which Google must be hard working at. The other peculiar thing which is a trait of the display and cannot be corrected in the blue tint on the screen when the screen is viewed at some angle.

As with the flagships, Pixel 2 XL has the same beast Snapdragon 835, coupled with a decent 4GB of RAM. It packs 64GB of internal storage that cannot be expanded. This one is an absolute performer in real life with no performance issues whatsoever. The Antutu benchmark score of Google Pixel 2 XL is around 1,70,000. Check out where the iPhone X and iPhone 8 stands.

Since the launch of Pixel 2, the mobile smartphone camera standards have been shattered. The Pixel 2 XL just excels at camera quality, with no arguments. The images are vivid, natural, crisp, with high dynamic range and superb white balance. We will just pause by saying that this is the best camera on a smartphone for 2017. Period. Google’s might in software and machine learning takes it ahead of the competition. On the spec sheet, Google Pixel 2 XL packs a 12.2-megapixel primary camera on the rear which has optical image stabilization and wide aperture, while the front has an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies. The camera is overall a big upgrade and main star of this phone. It works well in both daylight and low light conditions. Some of the land space shots in the low light were found to have some noise.

What’s not news is that the Google’s home run phone for this year runs on the latest and greatest Android 8.0 Oreo. With all the updates coming first and foremost to Pixel. Android 8 takes the Android experience forward with some great under the hood improvements, It's faster than ever and smoother than ever. This update to Android really alleviates some system-wide issues, elevating performance to new levels. It's all sweet and sweet if you get the Oreo update. With some great Pixel exclusive features such as Google Lens which can fetch contextual information from photos, like address, mobile number and could even tell the species of a flower,  Google Pixel 2 XL also has an active edge feature which allows you to launch the Google Assistant by squeezing the sides of the phone. With all these, Pixel 2 XL really makes a mark when it comes to experience.

What’s great is that you get a massive 3520mAh battery, which easily lasts for a day. With that energy efficient POLED panel, the battery lasts longer. Google has ALMOST got all the pieces right this time around with some top of the line hardware, exceptional software by Google and the power of AI right in your hands. It is really distressful that Google has not been able to cash on this superb smartphone, credits to all the controversies and issues that have engulfed the device. Whether it be the display issues, or difference in sounds from speakers, or even no OS on some devices. Google needs to up its game in quality and manufacturing to deliver the quality smartphones it wants to.  

As seen in iPhones, Google has also dropped the headphone 3.5mm jack in the Pixel 2 XL. The phone supports fast charging which has charge 90% in just about an hour.

As in other flagships devices, Pixel 2XL is also IP67 Certified, which makes it waterproof for up to 1 meter and 30 minutes, and completely dustproof, you can read more on the IP ratings here.

Overall, it delivers well but the controversies have played a negative tone to the phone, It has greatest of all camera and build quality. Certainly, the value for money score is lower in the flagships but they do offer the best of swift experiences.

Still have doubts about iPhone X or Pixel 2 XL? Check out our complete comparison of the duo.

Top Notch Camera, Stock Android, Fast charging, Good battery life makes it one of the best flagship phones in India.

Brief Review:

‘One more thing’ has been the words Apple doesn’t take colloquially, and whenever you hear these, then something truly extraordinary is about to dazzle. The same happened at the end of Apple’s 2017 September event. Despite all the leaks and rumours, the love and outpouring for iPhone X didn’t seem to falter. iPhone X is in itself a new direction for the iPhone since its original launch in 2007. It has been 10 years and Apple has a clear vision of changing the world with iPhone X for the next decade. The smartphone takes the ‘bezel-less’ motto of 2017, way too seriously and all you’ll see on the front of the device is that giant and magnanimous display which goes edge to edge, except that cut out up to infamously known as the top ‘notch’.

iPhone X features an all-new OLED display panel with an all-new size of 5.8 inches with a resolution of 1125 pixels by 2436 pixels. The display is called Super Retina HD by Apple and is undoubtedly the best display on the market, ever, according to rating agency DisplayMate. The form factor is totally different from what we’ve been seeing with the iPhones from past 3-4 years. It has an edge to edge front with a top-notch which has people divided into hate camps and embrace camps. Apple iPhone X is as premium as it gets with a glass back same as that on an iPhone 8 and is surrounded by metal bands as the rim. The iPhone X being the most astonishing smartphone of the year is also the most breakable phone of the year with huge repair costs involved, so if you are getting one, do buy a good case, some of the best ones are listed below.

iPhone X is powered by the same mighty A11 Bionic on the inside which has no parallel in performance erstwhile in the industry, coupled with 3GB of RAM, same as iPhone 8 Plus. We can’t really say more about the absolute powerhouse this device is. The Antutu benchmark score of the iPhone X is approximately 226000, beating any other Android phone in the market by at least a margin of 25%.

Since the launch of Pixel 2, the mobile smartphone camera standards have been redefined. After much anticipation on the camera quality of iPhone X, It doesn’t shy back with a score of 101 at DxO Mark, instils which is greater than the Pixel 2. While the Pixel 2 is the best smartphone camera no doubt, iPhone X is more or less equal. On the rear, we have a dual camera setup of 12MP and 12MP sensors of which one is a telephoto lens for 2X optical zoom without any loss in the image quality. The dual sensor setup n iPhone X is now vertical to enhance AR apps with similar sensors as on the iPhone 8 Plus but Optical Image Stabilization(OIS) on both the sensors. Portrait mode gets better and Portrait lighting debuts on the iPhone, with which you can now create studio lighting effects on your photos, that’s just way cool but still in beta, so don’t put your hopes high.

On the front, we have a 7MP camera sensor with f 2.2 aperture, you have that infamous notch although it houses state of the art FaceID tech. We have a TrueDepth camera system, which enables FaceID and portrait selfies, which of course looks totally awesome. And you have Animoji now on the X as the exclusive, we can’t possibly tell how much fun they are.

Read all about how the Face ID from Apple works.

To give emphasis on the Face ID proprietary technology, Apple has removed the fingerprint sensor from the iPhone X, and it takes a lot of courage and trust in their Face ID technology in taking this huge step. Apple has always redefined the market and is undoubtedly the leader in terms of innovation. 

iPhone X comes with iOS 11, as Apple calls it, “The Most Advanced, Secure, Intuitive Mobile Operating System” but this isn’t totally the case this time around as iOS 11 still appears to be a late beta product. It certainly needs more work, especially in the battery and efficiency department. As with others, iOS 11 is beautiful, intuitive and super secure as always, more than anything you can get.

iPhone X doesn’t shine in the battery numbers, It has a 2716 mAh juice pack, which surely sounds measly in the world of 4000mAh batteries but Apple has always been about efficiency. And despite the battery power of 2716 mAh, It's  not as bad as it seems, iPhone X can readily give a handsome 6-7 hours of onscreen time which is enough to stay awake for a full day usage, all thanks to the new OLED panel.

Apple iPhone X, as in iPhone 8, is protected by IP67 certification which means that is is completely dust resistant and also water resistant for up to 1 meter of depth for 30 minutes. Read everything about what IP ratings mean.

The phone supports fast charging but the box does not have the fast charger. The box also contains ear pods and a cable to convert charging jack into the headphone jack. The microphone also acts as a speaker which gives the sound, a stereo effect.

Overall, iPhone X is the best phone in terms looks, is most powerful and clubbed with great innovation. The product though is overpriced if we see the specification, but comes with the Apple brand and undoubtedly has great features which the Android phones would take a few years at least to master.

Best camera quality, Most Powerful chipset, Fast charging, IP67 Certified makes it one of the best flagship phones in India.

Nokia 8 is the flagship phone of 2017 from Nokia. Nokia is coming back after a long time and fans like us are excited.

At first look, Nokia 8 looks stunning especially the blue color variant. It has a metal unibody design carved out of Series 6000 aluminum. This is the same material used in iPhone 6 Plus which started the bendgate. Nokia might have used the same 6000 series material but the phone is very durable. Nokia has used a metal frame inside which keeps the phone rock solid. If you still have any doubts take a look at durability check out this video from JerryRigEverything.

Coming to the display, Nokia 8 has a Quad HD 5.3 inch display. The display is very sharp and bright. It is one of the most bright displays because of which the sunlight legibility is great. The display can be set to always on mode where it will display time and notifications. You can change for how do you want to have the always on display. Keeping it low will surely help to get better battery backup. Below the display, we have a fingerprint sensor with navigation keys which are backlit. 

Inside the Nokia 8, we have the latest Snapdragon 835 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The experience is super snappy thanks to the stock android with no bloatware at all. The device is able to handle heavy games and apps with ease. We did not notice any lag at all. Nokia 8 scores around 175000 on Antutu benchmark which is similar to other flagship devices.

The battery is 3090 mAh which is not great but still, it manages to give a full day of backup with medium usage. Plus, there is fast charging which helps to charge the device from 0 to 50% in just 30 minutes.

The camera setup on the back comes with Zeiss branding and is made of two 13MP f/2.0 sensors. One of the sensors is a color sensor and the other one is a monochrome sensor. There is no telephoto lens so you cannot zoom without losing image quality. You can take portrait shots though. The pictures taken from the back camera are very detailed and sharp. You can take black and white shots as well which also have high level of details. The night or low light pictures also look great. Nokia has done a good job with the camera setup of Nokia 8.

The front camera on the front is a 13MP f/2.0 sensor with autofocus. The front camera also performs really well and takes high-quality shots. 

Video recording can be done at 4K 30FPS. While video recording sound is captured through 3 microphones which results in clear recordings. Better than most of the other phones in this price range.

There is a new feature from Nokia where you can record video from both front and back camera at the same time. Nokia is calling it Bothies. We have to wait and see it this trend picks up in future. 

Overall, Nokia 8 is a pretty solid smartphone from Nokia in flagship segment. It is will give tough competition to LG G6 and OnePlus 5 which are selling at similar price point.

Excellent Build Qualty, Gorgeous Display, Dual Back Camera, Stock Android makes it one of the best flagship phones in India.

Brief Review:

iPhone 8 is one of the iPhones Apple showcased before the world at the Apple September Event, 2017. iPhone 8 is built on the same design philosophy as that of the iPhones from the previous year and a year before that. So don’t complain about it being same as the previous iPhones because It’s an iPhone 8.

The Apple iPhone 8 carries the same beautiful and premium design which is not very unique in 2017 but in new pale gold color which looks different and quite frankly it's growing on me. After a long time, iPhones have said Hello to the glass back since the iPhone 4 and this time, Wireless Charging via Qi debuts on iPhones.

The display size of Apple iPhone 8 is same at 4.7 inches, with a Retina HD display at a resolution of 1334 * 750 (326 PPI). As Apple claims it, the display is slightly better than that on iPhone 7 with a wider color gamut and True Tone, of course, it supports 3D Touch. The display is brilliant with vivid colors, good brightness, and wide viewing angles, no less worthy of an iPhone display.

While the new iPhone 8 might seem same as iPhone 7 on the outside, It is entirely different on the inside. Apple boasted its new in-house designed A11 Bionic as a successor to A10 Fusion, and damn the chip knocks every other chip off the playground. A11 Bionic in iPhone 8 has a massive Antutu Benchmark Score around 214878. Putting the device leagues ahead of any other smartphone in terms of raw power. This time we have 2 Power cores and 4 Power efficient cores which are up to 70% faster than A10 Fusion, additionally, all 6 cores can run at the same time, giving a huge boost to the performance. Apple again showed firm believe in the efficiency of iOS, by coupling the new iPhone with just 2GB of RAM. The base model as always packs 64GB of onboard flash storage.

iPhones have always been best at camera performance and this new iPhone falls no short of the reputation. iPhone 8 features an improved 12MP sensor. The new sensor as Apple claims is faster and has deeper pixels. We also have Optical Image Stabilisation(OIS) for photos and videos. Portrait mode gets better with iPhone 8 and Portrait lighting debuts on the iPhone, with which you can now create studio lighting effects on your photos, that’s just way cool but still in beta, so don’t put your hopes high. On the front, we have an improved 7MP, f/2.2 sensor, great for selfies.

The new iPhone 8 comes with iOS 11, as Apple calls it, “The Most Advanced, Secure, Intuitive Mobile Operating System” but this isn’t totally the case this time around as iOS 11 still appears to be a late beta product. It certainly needs more work, especially in the battery and efficiency department. As with others, iOS 11 is beautiful, intuitive and super secure as always, more than anything you can get.

As always with iPhones, iPhone 8 doesn’t shine in the battery numbers, It has an 1821 mAh juice pack, which definitely sounds measly in the world of 4000mAh batteries. It's not as bad as it seems, iPhone 8 can readily give 4-5 hours of onscreen time, that’s just enough to go through a day. It supports fast charging capable of charging 50 percent in just 30 minutes but the sad part is that the charger bundled in the box is not a fast charger. iPhone 8 also bundles wireless charging which is possible because of the glass at the back.

iPhone 8 carries an IP67 rating, making it completely dustproof and waterproof for up to 1 meter of depth for 30 minutes. Read more about IP ratings.

Overall, Apple iPhone 8 looks stunning and comes with the premium brand and build quality. Though the Value for Money is always on a lower end with the Apple Phones, the brand quality and trust are always high. iPhone 8 captures some great improvements over iPhone 7, better processing power, better camera and new features.

Great Camera, Powerful A11 chipset, Fast charging, IP67 Certified makes it one of the best flagship phones in India.

Brief Review:

HTC announced the very famous HTC U11 in May 2017, which was released later in June 2017.  The smartphone boasts a clean and premium “Liquid” design with glass and metal components. The back of the phone is a liquid glass, that looks amazing and is shiny but attracts a lot of fingerprint, which needs to be cleaned. The device has a big 5.5-inch screen upfront which is a super LCD Panel, at a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, 16:9 ratio making a giant pixel density of ~534 PPI. The display is an absolute stunner with vivid and accurate colours. On top of that beautiful screen, you have a corning gorilla glass 5 making the device scratch resistant as well. 

The phone is not the thinnest at 7.9mm and weighs a decent 169 grams. At the heart of this beauty is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835, coupled with a massive 6GB of RAM. This translates to super smooth multitasking performance in daily usage as you can see the specs are flagship-grade and so you shouldn’t expect anything less from HTC U11.  There’s not much to talk about performance here,  for the numbers’ sake, HTC U11 has a GeekBench score of 6125 on multi-core which is on the top end of the spectrum, the same reflects with a single core score of 1993. On the AnTuTu Benchmark score, the HTC U11 is a true performer with a jaw-dropping score of 177343, something very equivalent on the lines of Google Pixel 2 XL. In real life, bet you won’t find any lags at mostly anything you can throw at this smartphone. It doesn’t get hot while using, but intense gaming over longer durations might make the mercury go up. What’s great is that HTC U11 comes with 128GB of onboard storage that’s just twice the tradition which as it turns out is expandable up to 2TB via MicroSD. 

The HTC U11 carries the same astonishing camera performance found in HTC smartphones. The primary sensor on this beast is a 12MP and f 1.7 aperture with all the usual specs, Auto Focus, Phase Detection slow motion video recording and more. The camera is great and the DxO mark score of 90 speaks for itself. It's not as good as the Pixel or the new iPhones but it certainly is top of the line, for a common man you won’t be able to discern between. 

On the front, you have a 16MP sensor for selfies, with which it doesn’t leave you anything to complain about.  The wider aperture lets more light into the sensor making it a great companion for low light photography. The snaps are great with natural colours not too much saturated like the ones of the Galaxy lineup.  There’s also pro-mode in the camera app for greater control. Dynamic Range on this one is absolutely staggering. Images come out sharp and clean even in suboptimal conditions. The front camera lacks autofocus and isn’t exactly on the level with the rear sensor, still, it gets the job done nicely.

The HTC U11 runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, which is getting the Oreo update now. YAY! Android Nougat is no doubt a year old OS but certainly isn’t bad. The Android experience on HTC U11 isn’t close to stock Android but it's not that annoying as well. HTC U11 as with other flagship devices shuns the headphone 3.5mm jack and bundles a converter and Type C in-ear headphones in the box.  HTC U11 debuts with the squeeze edge feature that lets the phone perform any default set feature by squeezing the sides of the phone, this feature can also be seen in Google Pixel 2 XL.

The HTC U11 seems to be promising with the battery as well with a big 3000mAh battery that easily lasts a day with 5 hours of screen time. With normal usage, it can last easily for more than a day, the cherry on top being Quick charge 3.0, with the bundled fast charger. HTC U11 is one of those flagships which supports dual sim but with a hybrid sim slot, with 128GB of internal memory, this should not be an issue for most of the users.

Its worth mentioning that HTC’s flagship also is IP67 certified that makes it a tough smartphone for water and dust resistance. Read the detailed IP rating description here.

HTC U11 at the first look might seem overpriced but is not, the performance, build and brand quality it offers is seamless. If you are looking to try some great flagship experience, leaving apart the Google and Apple phones, this phone is deemed to offer an enthralling user experience.

Premium build quality, Crisp camera images, Powerful chipset, IP67 Certified makes it one of the best flagship phones in India.

Brief Review:

Samsung S8 plus is one of the best flagship Android phone in the market. S8 plus and S8 are similar in looks and design with S8 plus holding a bigger screen with higher rating battery, higher RAM and internal storage. 

S8 Plus comes with a 6.2-inch screen size and is very comfortable holding and operating with one hand. With its perfect styling, S8 plus can be easily voted as the best-looking smartphone. The curved design further adds to S8 plus finest looks. In terms of display, it comes with Super AMOLED display which Samsung calls as the infinity display because of the screen size. The display quality, brightness are all top notch. 

S8 Plus as in Samsung Galaxy S8 is powered by Exynos 8895 processor and comes in two variants 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM with 128GB internal Storage. The rear camera is a 12 MP shooter and has similar specification as Samsung S7, and clicks really good pictures, while the front camera is an 8 MP shooter and is one of the best flagship front cameras. It takes crisp pictures and has been improvised a lot. 

In User Interface, Samsung has moved from its TouchWiz UI to the newly called Samsung Experience UI, which is the most polished and refined version of UI from Samsung. The display is an always on display which does not affect battery life and can be very useful. Samsung S8 comes with a fast charger and 3500 mAh battery. The battery life for normal usage can last for just more than a typical day. 

There are three unlocking mechanisms available on the phone, fingerprint scanner which is placed on the right side of the rear camera, IRIS scanner, and face detection. The response of the fingerprint has improved a lot from previous flagship phones from Samsung, Iris and face detection work well but you need to keep the phone at a particular angle to unlock, that can sometimes be impractical in places where you look to unlock instantly. Fingerprint sensor position can take some time to adjust on hand because of the 6.2 screen size.

S8 plus is the best Android smartphone available, with best looks and design, good RAM management, superb camera and many great features. The phone is water resistant and there was no heating observed at all at any point of usage. The phone though lacks somewhere in the gaming department in which the some of the heavy games at maximum graphics setting exhibit some lag. This could due to the MALI GPU used in Samsung S8 as most of the games are optimized as per ADRENO GPU.

The phone overall is a great Android phone from Samsung. Though higher on the price point as with every Samsung phone but delivers well for its cost. It tops the chart in terms of looks, design, build quality, camera and performance. 

Some of the other phones with similar features and price range you can look at, are iPhone 7, Google Pixel, LG G6, One Plus 5.

Best looks and design, New and Improved UI, Top notch camera quality, No heating issues makes it one of the best flagship phones in India.

Brief Review:

After failing last year with the G5, LG has gone back to basics and made a more traditional G6. The phone looks great in hand thanks to large display on the front and glass panel on the back. The display has a aspect ratio of 18:9 which is not something we see usually. The wide angle dual back camera work great in day light and low light. G5 was not great in taking pictures but G6 is. 64GB internal storage is enough for most users and those who need more space can put a microsd card. They cannot both sims in that case thanks to the terrible idea of hybrid sim slot. The battery is 3300 mAh non removable. It will last for a day if your usage is moderate otherwise you have to carry a power bank. Overall G6 is a decent device for the price.

Beautiful Design, Vibrant Display, Very Narrow Bezels, Dual Back Camera makes it one of the best flagship phones in India.
