Five new phones you won’t forget at home

2017 has seen many new phones hit the market. Let us help you wade through all your options to find the best phone for you.

  1. One Plus 5 (£544.98)

Many people consider the OnePlus 5 to be the best Android phone around, and with good reason. Slicker than earlier models, with dual-cameras and more power than you could shake a stick at, this is a great phone. The AMOLED display is clear and vibrant, with a surprisingly fast fingerprint scanner and the low price point wraps a ribbon on this perfect package.

2. Motorola Moto Z (£347.87)

The world’s thinnest phone is also truly innovative. This modular phone allows you to customise it as you see fit. The snap-on modules are easy to use, and you may be able to use it for much longer than other phones on the market. It’s slick, it’s fast, it’s smart.

3. Sony Xperia XZ Premium (£605.00)

Boasting an HDR compatible 4K screen, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium offers an impressive performance. In addition to the clear and colourful images, the camera has incredible slow-motion video capabilities. It’s a beefy phone for anyone.

4. Google Pixel (£514.99)

Google has entered the phone market with a splash. The Pixel’s colorful screen is perfect for gaming and watching movies and TV shows. The Assistant is a worthy rival to Siri, and the simple interface is a joy to use. While the price point may be a sticking point for some, the Pixel is a refreshing break from an Android saturated market.

5. Samsung Galaxy S8 (£550.49)

Combining a great camera, crystal clear screen and a sleek design, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is probably the best phone released this year. The powerful 12MP camera and amazing power setup lets you do anything you could ever want or need, along with new biometric tech that will allow you to unlock your phone faster than any other phone.
