The best mobile phone

Several telephones come out every year. Among the high-end devices, one always stands out because of a new function or striking design. The advantage of mobile phones from previous years is that they become cheaper. We have made a selection of the best Android phones from 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Best mobile phone 2018

  • 128GB storage capacity
  • 6.1-inch Full HD screen
  • Android 8.1 Oreo

The Huawei P20 Pro is a phone that really stood out in 2018. This device is the first smartphone to have 3 cameras. Through artificial intelligence, the settings are already adjusted so that you take the best photos in your situation.

  • Very sharp photos with the 3 cameras of 40, 16, and 8 megapixels
  • Fast phone with 6GB of memory
  • The telephone has no headset connection

The Samsung Galaxy S8 was announced in February 2017. Soon the positive reviews came in: after the predecessor of this device, the S7, Samsung made a big step forward with the S8. The design became tighter and the screen a lot bigger compared to the S7. Performance such as speed and storage memory also improved.

  • Luxury, sleek appearance through the glass and metal casing
  • Sharp photos with 12 megapixel on the back and 8 megapixel on the front
  • The fingerprint scanner is in an awkward place next to the camera on the back of the device

Best mobile phone 2016

  • 32GB storage capacity
  • 5.1-inch quad HD display
  • Android 7.0 Nougat

Although the S8 made a big step forward after the arrival of the S7, the Samsung Galaxy S7 was one of the best phones in 2016 due to pioneering new features such as water resistance, a better camera and battery and a more refined design than that of the S6. Although the phone came out 2 years ago, it is still one of the best-selling devices of the moment.

  • Waterproof and dustproof
  • Sharp photos with the 12 megapixel camera on the back of the device
  • Relatively moderate 5 megapixel selfie camera


For the past few years we have chosen the Android phone that we believe stood out. Do you still want to look further? Then view all our smartphones.
